Manch­ester Courier Oc­to­ber 17, 1887

“Satur­day was the time ap­pointed for com­ple­tion of the first round of the [FA] Cup. Ac­cring­ton v Rossendale: The home team had two or three points dis­al­lowed but won by 11 goals to nil.

Black­burn v Bury: Be­fore 2,000 fans, the Rovers won by 10 goals to nil.

Pre­ston v Hyde: North End played a very strong team and Hyde never had a chance of get­ting into their quar­ter. Goals were rat­tled through in the most easy man­ner by the home side – points made by De­whurst (2), Drum­mond (2), Ross Jnr (2), Gra­ham, Thom­son (2), Gor­don (2) and Ross. Score at half-time: North End 12 goals, Hyde nil.

In the sec­ond half North End penned their op­po­nents and goals were added at reg­u­lar in­ter­vals. The Hyde cus­to­dian had a grand game, and he was in no wise to blame for the heavy score piled on him.

Goals were scored by De­whurst, Gor­don (3), Ross (5), Rus­sell, Goodall and Thom­son (3), with the re­sult be­ing a vic­tory for Pre­ston North End by 26 goals to nil.” A goal-heavy start to the 1887-88 FA Cup.
