Varsity Still Unbeaten

Local News

Meanwhile our own team are co. leaders in the competition again. A scratchy win against St. Pats when a lot of the seniors were playing for N.Z.U., and a thumping win against Hutt have put the first fifteen right back in the running They have played the really tough teams in the first round and can look forward to some relatively easy games.

The Juniors

The Junior Firsts had their first loss of the season on Saturday. They have a formidable line-up of players who give creditable performances when called upon to play for the Seniors. From reports this team plays very attractive football, and an afternoon spent watching them would be well worth while.


Varsity is still unbeaten in the Soccer and are co-leaders in the competition. For their second year in Senior A and playing for the first time on the Basin they gave a more than competent display. There are not many Varisty boys in the team, but Alan Preston, a Wellington rep., Joe Phillips and Bal Reddy are often mentioned favourably by the local Press.

Although the team may have been a trifle lucky in one or two of their draws, the fact remains that they have yet to be beaten and lead the competition after having played all teams in the first round.
