The Football Club is again the biggest in the College. Fight teams have been entered in the Club Competitions, as against the seven of previous years. The new team entered is the Junior B team.
Up to date of writing neither of our Senior teams have had a win, but both hope to open their score at an early date. In defence of both teams we must state that both have been playing the leading teams in their Grades.
Our Junior A are one of our strongest team's. So far they have had only one defeat, and that by the leading team. They hope to beat this team in the second round and draw level again. We must congratulate them on their showing this season. Junior B. have not done so well, but have not been beaten by any large scores as yet. Third A are one of the leading teams in this Grade, and if they carry on playing the foot ball they are now playing they must end well up the Championship Table. Third B are not doing too well, but can be said to be enjoying their football. The Fourth A are again very good. They have had one loss, against Petone, the leading team. They should end up among the leaders of the Grade, and with a little luck may be the actual leaders. The Fourth B have won 50 per cent, of their matches to date, and look like settling down page 7 into a good, solid team
The Club's injury list is heavy, and the Committee stresses the need of tit players being available every week, and not refusing to turn out under cover of flimsy excuses.
The new ground is ready for sowing, and will be sown in the early spring by a qualified man. The Club needs to raise a considerable sum to meet its liabilities this year, and hopes that all the members will be behind it in its financial undertakings.
The notice of Club members is drawn to two functions— the Dance to be held in July and a Smoke Concert to be held at the end of the season.
The Club will be playing Massey College at Wellington on June 8rd. and Te Ante College at Waipukurau on 20th August. All members under 21 are eligible for selection for this last match.
