What Mr. Parker Says

What Mr. Parker Says.

The coach Jim Parker in an exhortation to all players at Wednesday night's practice, assured all members that places in the Senior A team were to be gained solely on merit. "Reputation count for nothing" says Mr. Parker. "This year we will have better material than we have ever had before, and I am fully confident that 'Varsity football will reach an All Time High."

Of interest this year is the Colts team made up of the younger members of the club who are showing distinct promise. It is felt that these members would benefit more from a year in a lower grade than If they were initiated Immediately into the ranks of senior football. "A great error in the past." says Mr. Parker, "has been made when young players from secondary schools have been put into higher grade football, and have received injuries which have prevented them from reaching the peak which would originally have been expected.

The practice concluded with a few remarks from Mr. O'Shea, the club captain who again urged all members to put the football club on the basis which is expected of a Senior A team in the first division.
