Review:
Peter Grummitt broke his thumb in the 82nd minute. Dave Hilley came on to replace him as an outfield player, and Joe Baker went in goal for the last 10 minutes. And that was our first ever subsititution!
The Daily Mirror reported that Joe Baker wasn't troubled by Chelsea at all while he was in goal, and went on to say that Henry Newton shouted at him for taking more than 4 steps with the ball. Chelsea defender Johnny Boyle was then booked for arguing with the ref that Baker had taken more than the allowed steps, and the referee then 'gave Baker a comic demonstration of what he must not do'!
