BRISTOL ROVERS COLTS v. TROWBRIDGE TOWN
Although without their right winger, Harry Haddon. Trowbridge were much too good for the Rovers Colts on the latter's ground last Saturday and won by 4-1. Ivor Compton, the Reserve forward, was brought in and played very well. Feature of the game was a "hat-trick" of goals by Jack Dagg. It was the Rovers, however, who drew first blood, when Cook beat Vince. This seemed to act as a tonic on Trowbridge, who swept to the attack, with Abrahams clever in making openings for his colleague, Dagg. Only good defensive play kept the Town at bay until five minutes from the interval, when Dagg equalised.
The Rovers' defence was subjected to pressure on the restart, but held out until half-an-hour from the end, when the quick-moving Trowbridge forwards proved too much for them. Dagg, swinging round unexpectedly, hit the ball past Cook, though it went off an upright. Abrahams was the "star." Passing to outside left, Webb, the latter centred for Compton to score, and another pass from Abrahams enabled Dagg to score his third goal.
