GV Willie Weddell tying up the Welsh defence as the Scots swing into the attack. SV crowd rising. SV Alf Sherwood hastily kicks behind as the ball is running into the empty Welsh goal. SV again Alf Sherwood clears as the ball is about to enter the net with goalkeeper Kelsey on the ground. SV crowd applauding. SV another narrow escape for the Welsh goal when ring centres and Paddy Buckley is just unable to connect with the ball with Kelsey out of position. SV crowd. No goals until half time.
