Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 11, No. 7. June 23rd, 1948
The senior team's victory over Hospital in the Chatham Cup fixture seems to have put new life into the Club-and hopes, too. Brian Sutton-Smith's brilliant goal-keeping, Richardson's steady football at centre-half and Mike Spiers dynamic kicking will prove invaluable against Stop Out at the Basin on June 19th. while newcomer Ted Meuli should combine well with Symmonds' and Walls in the forwards. If you care to listen into 2YC at 1 p.m. you might hear something like this: 'Now the youthful Walls has broken through the defence, and is racing towards the goal. . . . Will he score? . . . Hell, he hasn't got the ball!"
Among the Seconds, Graeme Robinson, McLeod and Bliss account for themselves well, in Upper Hutt's defeat, 14 nil, is history. The really great thing about this team is the unusual keenness shown by its members.
For the Thirds, it has been one defeat after another, but they take it in true sporting fashion. Jim Skeddon, in goal. Mather and Strathern, have shown consistent form, while Wally Freitag (in spite of watery knees, etc.) turns on his usual bright Lancashire football. Some new recruits from Training Coll will help things along considerably.
