Monday, April 27 – 1914
A batch of charges was heard by the Penge-magistrates, today, in connection with the football Cup Final. There were 20 prisoners altogether, the offences embracing a variety of charges from gambling to assault.
Sixteen of the charges were for gambling in the Crystal Palace Grounds, chiefly by the three card trick and with box and dice. The offenders in this respect were each fined 45s and costs.
The other charges included one of a man who was fined £3 and costs for an assault on a local publican. Other small charges brought up the total of fines to about £40.
