    Match Report

A FAST ATTACK

In the first international match of the season England beat Ireland by three goals to none at Windsor Park, Belfast, on Saturday, and they won for the first time in Ireland since 1912.

Speed and persistence in attack gave England the victory over a side which seemed to lack the spirit, and certainly lacked the polish, of the winners...

...in the end England took the lead through a penalty kick. Camsell was brought down unfairly, and Hine, who took the kick, scored. England had the rest of the play before half-time, and, after Scott had saved a shot from Bradford, Camsell scored an easy goal, running with the ball into the net.

Ten minutes from time Camsell scored the third goal, beating Russell and drawing Scott from his position before placing the ball into a corner of the net. - The Times - Monday 21st October, 1929

IN OTHER NEWS...

It was on 19 October 1929 that three and a half million shares were sold on the New York Stock Exchange as prices fell significantly. Five days later came the 'Wall Street Crash' as the market went into freefall and investors began to panic, selling almost 13 million shares. It was an economic catastrophe that affected world markets and was followed by, what became known as, the 'Great Depression'.
