The Spike or Victoria College Review, June 1906
V.C. v. Wellington. Lost, 2—0. Wellington had the best of the first spell, but we livened up considerably towards the end. All the backs played well, but the forwards were disappointing.
V.C. v. United. Lost, 2—0. United played splendidly, though our failure to seize our opportunities also assisted them. Ryburn, in goal, played a great game. Watson and Skelley also were in good form.
V.C. v. Karori. Lost, 2—1. The forwards at last seemed to wake up, and a close game resulted. Mackenzie shot a goal.
V.C. v. United. Lost, 5—2. United scored four goals in the first spell. The forwards played better in the second spell. Smith (1) and Sargent (1) scored for us.
V.C. v. Karori. Lost, 6—3. Ground very muddy; did not suit us at all. Game was pretty even, however. Karori scored two goals in last few minutes. Beere (2) and Smith (1) scored.
Misfortune upon misfortune! We have just heard that C. Skelley, captain of our 1st Eleven is going to leave us—promoted and moved to Napier. This is a serious loss. Skelley has proved himself a very capable player and a good captain, and we are very loth to part with him. The club entertained him on the 5th at a luncheon party, and many complimentary things were said. Good luck to him!
