    The ground is indeed called the "City Ground". "Trainer Taylor" is Archie Taylor.

    Despite the commentator crediting the goalkeeper as "B Ashton", his name is Percy Ashton. This is him here....

    "H S Smith" is Harry Smith.

    "J Barrington" is Jim Barrington.

    " WH McKinley" should read McKinlay (Billy McKinlay).
