Wellington's Hockey Captain
Honour for F. U. Newcombe.
Cool, fit, and able centre-half. F. L. Newcombe, we, as Club Captain, plays a large part in guiding the affairs of the V.U.C. Hockey Club led the Wellington Representative side against the Indians at the Basin Reserve. With his men hopelessly outclassed. Frank won admiration by the way he saw the game out to the bitter end, never letting up. Forced to defend practically throughout, he did so tirelessly and resolutely, and, particularly towards the end. Was several times under notice for effective play.
