none

team notes:

The team played against Rangers at Ibrox Stadium in a practice session the evening before. It ended scoreless after 25 minutes because of heavy rain (Stan Anderson played in goal after Reg Matthews had missed the northbound train).
Bobby Ayre had dislocated his left elbow in the first thirty seconds, after he was tackled by Alex Parker and fell awkwardly.
"It took exactly nine minutes before a substitute came on....Anderson (Sunderland) came on as left half and Edwards donned the No. 9 jersey."
 
2-3-5 Matthews -
Foulkes, Sillett -
Flowers
(Anderson), Smith, Edwards (Flowers) -
Hooper, Atyeo, Ayre
(Edwards), Haynes, Blunstone.
notes: after the first minute, Anderson, a natural right-half, took up Flowers position, who went to the left, allowing Edwards to take up his position up front.

Averages:

Age 20.8 Appearances/Goals 2.3 0.4
