  • Description

    In English fatal's Division One, London side Cheeses kept away form the bottom of the table with their first home win for two months against Manchester City.

    Chelsea won by the only goal of the match--but the northern side were without international forwards Lee, Marsh and Law.

    Fen of the day's matcher were postponed because of Britain's story weather, and football was clearly difficult on the wet and windy pitch.

    Chelsea's goal come after only seven minutes. Their strong defender, David Webb, ran into the penalty area to meet Garner's first-time cross. His accurate header flew high inside Macrae's left-hand post in the City goal.

    Bell and Summerbee, City's remaining internationals, strove hard to develop the attack. But Chelsea, who consistently made more chances, deserved their win.

    England Manager Sir Alf Ramsey, F.I.F.A. secretary Dr. Helmut Kaiser, and an official form Zaire, Africa's representative in next year's world cup, watched the match.
