King's Sutton Scorers: 

Stoke Lyne won Lord Jersey’s cup on Saturday last, March 18th, defeating King’s Sutton by one goal to none, at the contest at Deddington. The Stoke team have played for the trophy ever since Lord Jersey offered it, and during that time have scored in cup-ties 39 goals to 21. This season there has not been a goal scored against them in cup matches. The serious accident from which their right-wing forward, Albert James is now suffering in the Radcliffe Infirmary, Oxford, is greatly deplored by all lovers and supporters of football at Stoke Lyne. James was, as recorded in last week’s Bicester Herald, injured by a waggon passing over his legs, near Woodfield, Bicester. The cup was presented to the winners by the Rev. A. R. Price, of Hethe, one of the vice-presidents, and medals were distributed to each Stoke man.
