Cricket Club

"How is this reason (which is their reason) to gauge a scholar's worth. By casting a ball at three straight sticks, and defending the same with fourth."

This year the Club holds sanguine hopes of a very successful season. Great efforts are being made to regain Senior status, and formal application has been made to the Wellington Association. We have already enough members for two teams, but we appeal to the active men of the College to help to make the Club a progressive one and to enter at least three teams.

Practice wickets are being arranged at Kelburn Park, so that all the activities are localised about the College. Many former players of both Senior and Representative honours are again with the Club, and the team gives every promise of making a good fight for the top of the Championship lists. The most pressing need at present is financial members, and all cricketers should make a point of joining up and giving a great "boost" to our re-entry into Senior ranks. Another prospective feature of the year is the reinstatement of the pre-war inter-'Varsity matches. We hope to arrange a tour during the vacation, and with that end in view all players should start to practise now.
