    smoke from a passing train. Yes it did happen at a Luton match but only once was it reported.

    Luton Reporter -

    “Luton Town v St. Albans. This, which in the opinion of some may be regarded as “the match of the season”, was played last Saturday on the Town ground in Dallow-lane, in most uninviting weather. There was, however, a good “gate,” as the match had been much anticipated. Deacon started the ball for the locals towards the Workhouse, but it was soon returned by the visitors, who pressed rather severely for the first fifteen minutes, and missed two splendid chances at goal. The tables, however, were soon reversed. Miller, by a magnificent piece of leather chasing, transferred to H. Whitby, who scored one of the best goals ever obtained in the Lane.

    After the kick-off Miller, who played all through in grand style, settled on the ball, and made a praiseworthy attempt, which was frustrated by a “header,” and after a corner and scrimmage the ball got away. In the second half the “reds” made matters pretty warm for the citizens. J.C. Lomax, Miller and F. Whitby in succession endeavoured to add to the count, the last named missing an easy chance through being blinded by smoke of a passing engine. About four minutes before the sound of the whistle Humphrey kicked out of danger, Moore dropped on the ball, dashed down the field by himself, and taking advantage of the semi-darkness, dodged the Luton goal keeper, and averted defeat, for at the end of the game stood drawn “one all”.

    Miller, Deacon, and the two Whitbys were conspicuous by their dashing play, and thoroughly merited all the praise they obtained; for St. Albans Moore, Biggs, Sharpe and Humphrey were the best. Luton:- Reade, goal; Hoy and Martin, backs; E. Lomax, A. Taylor and Miller, half-backs; F. and H. Whitby, J.C. Lomax, Deacon and Moody, forwards”. St. Albans:- Spicer, goal; G. Humphrey and Long, backs; A. Paul, Looker and M. Sharpe, half-backs; Biggs, S.P. Moore, W. Sharpe, Miskin and McFie, forwards”.
