Whilst the football match Cheshire Lines v. South Tranmere Y.M.F.S. was in progress last Saturday, a young bullock became very frisky on seeing the players running about in their variegated jerseys.
The bullock rushed in amongst the players, and finally espying Ashton, the Friendlies goalkeeper, between the posts, charged him some distance away, and whilst the goal was left undefended the ‘Linesmen’ scored a goal, and no whistle being sounded, the point was counted.
The Cheshire Observer, October 3, 1891.
