    Match Report by the Western Daily Press, Monday, 24 May 1948

England's soccer team wound up their short Continental tour at Schaffhausen yesterday by beating the Canton of Schaffhausen, a Swiss second division side, by six goals to nil. Scorers were Mortensen (3), Mannion, Pearson and Cockburn.

Arranged primarily as an exhibition match the game did not fully live up to that description owing to the conditions. Apart from the sweltering heat, the ground, a school playing area, was small, dry, bumpy and sloping.

star of the England team was centre-forward Mortensen, who netted three goals. Other scorers were Mannion, Pearson and Cockburn.
