"The third encounter of the season between Newport and Cardiff on Saturday attracted the usual big gate. A large contingent of the spectators coming from the Welsh Metropolis. The match had been the all-absorbing topic in football circles for days past, and the result was almost precisely what had been anticipated, by those who took a reasonable view of the state of affairs, although it was hoped there might be a surprise in store."
"The game was contested in a spirited but friendly manner, from the time the ball was set rolling, to the time the referee's whistle sounded "no side". The play was fast and furious, Newport from the start looked as if they were going to make a good show. Jordan should certainly have scored on one occasion; Cardiff however exhibited their superiority, and the line was crossed on three successive occasions. Fothergill was forced to retire with an injury to his leg. Hannen had then succeeded in getting the leather on the right side of the goal line, but Webb made a miserable attempt to convert. Williams, just before the call of time managed to notch the last points and Cardiff were enabled to return home with flying colours."
