     Match Report as appears in the F.A. Yearbook 1950-51, page 24

For the match against Holland at Newcastle on February 22nd, England 'B' fielded a mixed team which included several new internationals. Their performance was below expectation, though Shackleton and Mannion showed individual brilliance.
The Dutch put up a determined fight, but were outclassed in football skill; the margin of England's victory (3—0) might well have been much greater, but for thw forward-line's weakness in scoring-power.
