Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 7, No. 3. May 3, 1944
The Soccer Club, born last year, has avoided infant mortality and looks like developing into a lusty infant. With a strong backing of last year's players and some newcomers, who are by no means new to the game, we should be able to field a team at least capable of emulating last season's feat of winning the championship and being runners up for the cup.
Last Saturday the team played a very enjoyable practice game against Training College. The high score, Varsity 6—T.C. 1, was due to the lack of experience rather than of talent in the revived Training College team.
The form shown by all Varsity players was cheering: apparently, too, the combination worked up last year has survived and should get us away to a good start in the championship which begins next Saturday with a game against Tech. Old Boys. Many of us have a special interest in this game.
All members of the team are sorry that we are soon losing the services of Colin Richardson, whose outstanding play last season contributed in no small measure to the club's success.
