On their grounds yesterday afternoon the Clydesdale Football Club engaged the "Casuals," a newly organized Club, in a game of football, in the presence of a large gathering of spectators. In the first half play was even, the embryo club however lacked combination, this is accountable as this is their second attempt. The first goal was beautifully shot by Blair, and Bullock secured a second for the home team. Play was somewhat slow at the beginning, but became faster as the evening wore on. Jackson [sic, Todd] for the homesters appeared at his best in goal, as the visitors failed to score. The game eventually resulted in a win for the home team by 2 goal to "love." The following were the teams:—C.F.C.—Todd (goal), Adamson, Davis (backs), Hoadley, Adam, Ironside, (half backs), Wood, Logie, Knox, Bullock, Blair (forwards). For the "Casuals"—T. Jackson (goal), F. Brierly, G. Owen (backs), R. Swan, B. Mcracken, J. Hyslop, (half backs), P. Casidy, Carrick, J. Rochford, W. Harragin, G. Brierly (forwards).
