    Match Report

England beat Wales at New Cross yesterday by three goals to none.

The match was a remarkable one in many respects. The English side, who won in the end so easily, failed to gain any advantage when playing with a strong wind behind them, for although they had much the better of the football the Welsh defence was very sound. The game had lasted for over an hour before there was any scoring, and the home side showed to the most advantage when the wind beat in their faces and the sleet and snow had made the turf slippery. Considering the conditions during the second half the play of the English side reached a high standard, and when once they had scored they soon put the result beyond doubt...

Woodward was in fine form, and he and Evans made the left wing the most effective attacking force in the match. He scored two of the goals by neatly heading through two centres by Simpson... - The Times - Tuesday 14th March, 1911


It was on 13 March 1911 that the cross-examination of Steinie Morrison continued in the trial of the man accused of murdering a Russian landlord, Léon Beron on Clapham Common. Two days later, he was found guilty and sentenced to death, but the Home Secretary, Winston Churchill was to commute this to life imprisonment.
