Luton Clarence, who gained such an unexpected victory over Southall on Saturday but still figure at the bottom of the League, were at Cricklewood-lane on Boxing Day where Hampstead Town, on a terribly muddy ground, won by nine goals to love. The team was as usual, except that Travers Day played instead of Briscoe at outside-right, and the change strengthened the side, as he not only scored two goals, but his well-judged centres brought others. The first two goals were obtained by Howell, who each time headed through from a beautiful centre by Day. Day got the third, after wriggling himself into a favourable position for shooting; the fourth - the best of the batch - was put to the credit of Wise, who shot with force and judgement; and Kirby got a fifth before half-time.
In the second half Clarence held their own rather better, but McCracken was seldom troubled. Seabrooke, from a well-timed pass from Wise, scored Hampstead's sixth goal, and Day got the next; and from corner kicks most accurately placed by Day, further goals were obtained by Howell and Wise.
