Falkirk 2nd XI v Lenzie 2nd XI - Sat 20th Sep 1879

Falkirk Herald - Thu 2nd Oct 1879


Played at Falkirk on Saturday, and resulted in the defeat of the home club, who had by far the best of the game throughout, and pressed their opponents (who played with ten men) from beginning to end, but seemed to be unable to score when they had a chance, while the strangers, who played a very plucky game, and rarely managed to get away with the ball, were twice successful in scoring. For the home team - Binnie, M'Callum, Taylor, and Fleming, forwards; J.Mitchell, half-back; and Murphy, back, were most prominent; and for the strangers H.Walker, Forrester, and M'Ausland, forwards; J.Walker, half-back; and Buck, back, were in good form. Teams - Falkirk - Taylor, Binnie, D.Fleming, J.M'Callum, R.Peddie, W.Peddie, forwards; J.Fleming and J.Mitchell, half-backs; A.Mitchell and Murphy, back; H.Hendrie, goal. Lenzie - M'Ausland, Forrester, H.Walker, W.Cree, and P.Cree, forwards; J.Walker and Addie, half-backs; O.Buck and W.Gentleman, back; J.Lochtie, goal.

Note- I believe that W.Gentleman in the Lenzie side was William Gentleman of Falkirk.
