Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria University College, Wellington N.Z. Vol. 20, No. 9. June 27, 1957



After beginning the season with some good wins, including an 8-1 victory over Miramar Rangers, the Varsity 1st division Soccer team has slumped badly. It was thrashed 5.0 by Seatoun in the first round of the Chatham Cup and followed this by losing to Petone 3-2.

This year the Club has expanded from three teams to five. There are plenty of good players in the lower grades and if some of these players are given a trial in the seniors there should be an improvement in the team's position.

Four Varsity players. W. Aldridge. W. Blue, D. Jones, and P. Naidu, played for Wellington against Canterbury. Perumal Naidu was easily the best Wellington player on the field and must stand a great chance of getting in the New Zealand team. He and A. H. Preston played well for Wellington against Otago.

Club teams have visited the Wairarapa at the invitation of the Masterton Club. It is pleasing to see that a Winter Tournament team is already being organised from among those players who are eligible.
