The Spike: or, Victoria College Review, June 1913


Last season was, in many ways, one of the most successful experienced by the Club. It is true that the Senior XI. Just managed to avoid the wooden spoon; and yet, strange to tell, we had a team really stronger than that of 1911. The Juniors, however, under the able leadership of Fred. Martin, worthily upheld the traditions of the Club by winning most of their games and finishing up the season as runners-up for the Junior Championship. The Third Eleven, too, won a majority of the games it played, though its score-book has vanished utterly.

What gave greatest satisfaction to the Club's Executive was the keenness displayed by practically all members—a good augury for the future.

During the season we played Canterbury College at Christ-church, and Otago 'Varsity at Wellington. Each of these games ended in a "draw"; but the good-fellowship which exists between us and the men of the Southern Colleges was enhanced by each of these matches. We were exceedingly sorry that Auckland 'Varsity could not make the trip to Wellington at Christmas, and we hope, at no distant date, to meet them here.
