Muddied Gentlemen

This is the seventh week of the soccer club's existence. The team entered in the senior B competition under the able leadership of Nev. Swinburne, has shown itself to be at least up to war-time standard, having won one, drawn one and lost four games all by small margins. The star player is Colin Richardson at centre-half, who represented Wellington against Lower Hutt on King's Birthday. His strenuous efforts, together with those of the two backs, Beige and Dickson, do much to make up for the lack of experience and practice of the forwards, whose combination is affected adversely by constant changes in personnel. Nevertheless, they occasionally justify their existence by scoring a goal. It is pleasing to note that though the team has not yet worked up a combination, the play of individual members has improved considerably.
