One who witnessed the victory of Hull City over the Bradford men gives a high testimony to the play of Ernie Scattergood in the Park Avenue men’s goal. He writes: –
“A great artist did Scattergood prove himself to be, and especially so in the closing moments when the vigour and enthusiasm of Hull’s young forward broke out afresh.
“Scattergood, never once wavered before this belated onslaught, and the Tigers had to be content with the couple of goals which were already theirs.
“Hull City, without a doubt, deserved to win although their two scores too a vast amount of obtaining, and it was only by displaying never-say-die methods that the defence of Bradford was eventually overcome.
“Bradford suffered from the absence of Bauchop, and this accounted for the fact that Waite, the Park Avenue local recruit, was under a cloud almost the whole of the time.”
