Weir House Team

Weir House Team.

This team will achieve better results as combination improves and team-work supplants individual play.

Playing at centre-forward. J. Rutherford is captaining the side. His stick work is good but a disinclination to pass to his supports is marring his play. W. Cook (inside-left) keeps position well. C. Aickman at inside-right is steady and persistent but has a bad habit of turning on the ball. On the right wing L. Jenkins is fast and improving, but at present hits too hard. Kellaway on the opposite wing has not yet had enough practice.

The three halves, G. Culliford, S. Whitlock and Tilson possess very fair stickwork. Whitlock, however, has a tendency to obstruct.

[unclear: Mass] has been playing the best hockey of the three full-backs. His clearances are usually strong. At right-fullback, Goldstone is very reliable, though his clearing hits lack force. Speedy is improving with practice. He should keep his eye on the ball more.
