First up, they had to see off Clarendon, who though lingering towards the bottom of the table, had a solid team and had given the Bees a good game earlier in the season. From the outset, the Bees pressed hard. Harry Taylor set the early standard with a typically rampaging performance to snuff out any opposing threat whilst setting the Bees attacks forward. Jimmy Palfrey, in goal, put on an impressive vocal performance to support the players in front of him, as the Bees laid siege to the Clarendon goal, but found dogged defending and a capable goalkeeper blocking their path. As the game wore on, with wingers George Lindley and Thomas Osborne becoming increasingly influential, a few cracks started to open which saw Tommy Tubb, Osborne and Lindley all denied by the keeper, followed by a good chance for Alex Robinson. However, the Bees won the game when a sublime move started with Taylor winning the ball in his own half before setting the ball forward to Osborne down the right. Good dribbling and a fine cross from Osborne saw Lindley connect at the far post to give the Bees a last-minute winner, that their impressive performance had deserved. It would turn out to be a key moment in the whole tournament.
