Match No. 213 - Wednesday, 17th November 1937

  • "Once again Matthews beat his man and took the ball up to the goal line. This time he placed it gently into the goalmouth and followed it up, and whether he or Mills actually put in through is of little importance." Stanley Matthews2nd of 11 goals, 28'
  • Assist: Eric Brook. "Goulden took the ball about half the length of the field, and then unluckily lost it at the moment he was about to shoot. It was not properly cleared, however, and went out to Brook. Brook returned it to Hall, and Hall from the inside-left position shot with a perfection of timing and placing." Willie Hall2nd of 9 goals, 57'
