HOCKEY—NORTHAMPTON TEMPERANCE V. RUSHDEN—Played on the borough ground on Saturday last, when a, very good game resulted in favour of

the Temperance by three goals to two. For the winners S. Field (who obtained two goals) and C. Smith played splendidly, as also did W. Tyrell and C. Harris, though all played well. The Rushden men played a good game, and it was anyone's match until five minutes before time was called, when S. Field made the winning hit.

Mixed Hockey - Good Friday Match at Rushden

mixed hockey

One of the merriest sporting events at Rushden on Good Friday was the hockey match between the Baptist and Miss Dyke’s XI. Our photographer snapped the combined teams just before play began. Despite a too-lively ball the play was interesting and the result, a 3-3 draw, was a fair reflex of the game.
