So as not to interfere with the senior match at Upton Park in the afternoon this match was played at Leyton on Friday morning. West Ham were strongly represented, each of their players having figured prominently in Southern League football. Leyton, however, put up a rare good fight, and although beaten by four to love, had there full share of midfield play. Weakened at centre forward was the principal cause of their undoing. In the opening half Leyton had none the worse of the exchanges, and West Ham were a trifle lucky in scoring a goal through Burton at the end of twenty minutes. Shortly before the interval Aylward had a grand chance of equalising, but shot too high and the ball rebounded off the crossbar. Fortune favoured West Ham in the second half, everything coming off for them. A long pass out by Gresham gave Lee an easy opening for the second goal, whilst a long shot from Burton cannoned off one of the Leyton backs to the feet of Gresham, who shot the third. Leyton made several praiseworthy attempts to score, and Clark had far from an idle time in goal. Gresha, however, got through again for the Hammers, who won by four goals to love.

On Easter Saturday afternoon the Hammers who are at the top of both the South Eastern and London League and have the reputation of being the best reserve team in the south, visited Tufnell Park and a capital game, in which the Tuffs (who played two of the reserve team in Lapthorn and Broom) had slightly the best of matters throughout, resulted in a draw of one goal each. The interval arrived with a blank score sheet, although both goalies made home . good saves, the Tuffs' forwards being very persistent. On resuming it was expected that the " Hammers" with the slope would have the best of matters, but such was not the case, the Tuffs playing up well, and after about 15 minutes' play Pilon got right away, but Clark rushed out and took the ball just in time, both players being hurt in the collision, Pilon being off the field for quite ten minutes. About half way through this half Lapthorn made a good run, and after beating Jarvis and Hammond, drew out Clark, and cleverly scored, putting the Tuffs ahead amid great enthusiasm. Both teams made great efforts to add to the score, but it was not until ten minutes later that Broom, having brought down Waggott in the penalty area, Bourne equalised for the Hammers from the ensuing penalty kick. The Tuffs played up strongly, and Pilon got right through, and with an open goal shot just outside, but no doubt he was still feeling the effects of his shake up. Nothing further being scored, a capital game, which the Tuffs fully deserved to win, resulted in a draw of one goal each.
