Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 4, No. 3. April 09, 1941



The Social team was by far the most successful of our sides this year. Capably led by "Perk" Richards, whose work as batsman, 'keeper, master tactician, and general peacemaker was almost inspirational, this eleven had five eight point wins, and a win and a draw against Eastbourne, winners of the Hutt Valley League "C" Grade this year.

Missing after Xmas were Vic Palmer, forceful bat and brilliant field, and Jim Halpin and George Parrish. These last two were the stock bowlers, Parrish taking 17 wickets in the three games that he played. The stylist of the side, H. D. Bray, gained well-merited promotion to the 2nd XI.

Most people know Henry Moore as an ex-champion middle-distance man and highly successful coach of the Football Club's "Colts" team for many seasons past. What lots of them don't know is that Henry is a pretty competent cricketer. His slows, always well flighted and full of guile, gave him 50 odd wickets at the small cost of about ten runs apiece. He was fairly consistent with the bat too, an excellent 99 and a 61 being particularly good efforts. Bert Frazer's hard hitting and the keenness and enthusiasm of Norm Dix were outstanding features of an interesting season. A good time really was had by all. Well done, Socialists!


To A.U.C. on winning the Senior Championship in Auckland this, season.

To our old friends and rivals, Eastbourne, on being runners-up in the "A" Grade and winning the "C"' Grade in the Hutt Valley League.
