SHAMROCK v. LOCAL FORCES

The League Match, between representative teams of the Shamrock and Local Forces clubs, was played yesterday afternoon on the Shamrock ground, and resulted in an easy win for the home team, who scored 3 goals against their adversaries one goal. There was nothing much worth recording throughout the game. The play on the whole was very poor, Shamrock showing up worse than they ever have this season. Pelham Cumming was the hero of the match, scoring all three goals for his side. The game had not been in progress many minutes when the Forces scored and it was not until a few minutes before half time that Shamrock equalised. In the second half, Shamrock did all the pressing, and, adding two more goals, won, as above stated by 3 goals to one.
