BLETCHLEY v. WINSLOW ROVERS.- On Saturday a match was played between the Winslow Rovers and Bletchley.  The latter, who were by far the heavier team, won by the narrow majority of five goals to four.  The Winslow Rovers have played sixteen matches this season, of which they have won ten, lost five, and drawn one;  number of goals – for forty-nine, against twenty-seven.

            WINSLOW : ROVERS v.
