With three of the regular players away, the seniors were beaten by Poneke 5-2. The team seems to lack constructive play, although one or two of the forwards stand out as sound players. Dorothy Wimpenny has played consistently throughout the season. Geraldine Kean was prominent on Saturday, and with a little more finesse, would be a very sound player.

Mary Frankish was playing out of her position in goal, but made several good saves. The halves seemed a bit at a loss to deal with the fast Poneke forwards—positional play is a first essential of good half back play. Vesta Emmanuel at centre half played a consistent game. Betty Rider at left wing is very fast but had a tendency to lose possession without an argument last Saturday. The team, as a whole, is to be congratulated on keeping together this season and it is to be hoped that the Club will have more support next year.
