592 spectators had found their way to Grains Moss, despite the heavy rain. Kurt Lipovsky was the appointed referee with assistance provided by and Frank Ulfsson. A 2-5-3 alignment was the formation of choice for 1855. The following players had been chosen: Watson - Marquis, Dale - Scarrow, Currer, Ericson, Wan, Pye - Norrison, Piper, Otis.

BROTHERHOOD had chosen a strategic 5-5-0 formation. Lineup: Filip - Bjerrum, Vogel, Wakelam, Saveljeff, Şchiopu - Al-Jashmy, Weiss, Kurk, Radigue, Borromeo -.

After 4 minutes, 1855 were awarded a free kick. Rather than shooting straight at goal, the taker went for an indirect variant which seemed to take his team mates a bit by surprise. Ian Currer did attempt a finish, but from an awkward position, sending the ball into the away fans. The BROTHERHOOD free kick 5 minutes into the match seemed wasted, as the shot was both short and off target. But was this actually a plan? The ball landed at the feet of Bastien Radigue, who was completely unmarked in the box. That's 0 - 1! Some fine passing in the middle of the pitch, carving open the away defence, should have led to a goal for 1855, but Ian Currer's shot went over the bar. The referee showed BROTHERHOOD's Francesco Borromeo the yellow card after a particularly nasty challenge. A corner kick created great disorder in the penalty area with a goal nearly scored by Alan Norrison. At last, 1855's Herbert Wan was able to backheel the ball in. 1 - 1. It might be a while before the fans see 1855's Mike Otis again, after he had to leave the field in great distress at the 39 minute mark. He was replaced by Abdus-Salam Shafiq. Many thought Alan Norrison ought to have been awarded a penalty 40 minutes into the game, as he went down trying to dribble around Robert Filip after a determined run through the middle. 41 minutes into the game, 1855 seemed to suffer a certain amount of confusion and they fell to a solid level of organisation. Alan Norrison gave 1855 the lead as he successfully challenged the guests' central defenders, then slotted the ball into the bottom corner, giving the keeper no chance. 2 - 1 2 - 1 was the halftime score. 1855 had most of the ball, with 65 percent of possession.

A review of the gameplan helped 1855 get back to a solid organisation when the referee blew his whistle again. 1855 managed to extend their lead to 3 - 1 when Michael Dale cut in neatly from the left side and struck a fine shot past the away team's goalkeeper. BROTHERHOOD's Bastien Radigue was shown a yellow card for standing over the ball and blocking an opponent's quick free kick after 71 minutes. Things were going to get worse for the visitors. Stuart Piper squirmed through their central defence after 84 minutes, increasing the lead to 4 - 1. 1855 increased the lead as Ally Scarrow struck to make the score 5 - 1 after an attack from the left left him unmarked in front of the keeper. At this point, it was obvious that the players of 1855 lowered the tempo and became more defensively oriented. 88 minutes into the game, 1855 had difficulty finding their positions and their organisation dropped to poor. The rain made it hard for players like Michael Dale to show their technical control of the ball on this soggy day. 1855 claimed to have seen most of the ball, and the statistics agreed with them - possession being 66 percent.

Most important 1855 player was Stuart Piper. On the other hand, Michael Dale's play was disheartening. BROTHERHOOD's best player was Francesco Borromeo. Robert Filip was a disappointment, however. The match ends 5 - 1.
