Sheffield Daily Telegraph – Monday 14 October 1929
Shirebrook, who drew 1-1 with Wombwell, only played ten men for the greater part of the second half, Winnard being injured. Nevertheless Shirebrook did the greater share of the attacking, but, with the front line disjointed, failed to finish. They missed a penalty too.
Wombwell’s attack was more concerted than that of the home side, Raynor being especially prominent on the extreme right, while Hepworth, centre-half, and Dennis Jones, who formerly assisted Shirebrook, greatly impressed.
Keightley, Newton, Binns, Bedford, Worrall, and Evans were the pick of the home side. Binns scored for Shirebrook, and Hepworth for Wombwell.
A goalless draw was a fair reflex of the game between Wath Athletic and Mexborough. The honours went to the respective defences, for neither attack was worth a goal. When Wath held the advantage they rarely got beyond Fellowes and Davies, and Ward, in goal, was not seriously troubled. For Wath, Skeels and Sanderson were outstanding, while Wroe and Vollans did well for Mexborough,
Denaby’s team showed several changes from those the spectators saw in the first five home matches, and a winning blend appears have been struck. Denaby beat Scarborough 2-0 in a splendid match played at a very fast pace. It deserved a better “gate.” Scarborough, after a great start, became over-eager when half-time came and they were a goal down.
This had been scored Smith (C.), who headed in a pass from Betteridge. But Denaby went further ahead when Morallee was ‘bowled over and Woodhead scored from the subsequent penalty. Denaby’s new goalkeeper, Smith (A.), justified his inclusion, showing good anticipation, whilst Norman Hammond, the young amateur centre-half, was a tower of strength.
