The Spike: or, Victoria University College Review, June 1924



In accordance with the Tournament rules, the annual contest for the Haslam Shield was shot off in the respective centres before Easter. V.U.C. fired the match on April 5th, and put up rather a poor performance. "Tricky Trentham," in one of her characteristic moods, succeeded in dashing our expectations of annexing the Shield by staging a strong "fishtail" wind, which carried off many an otherwise well-aimed shot.

The V.U.C. team consisted of A. Ainslie, C. G. S. Ellis, A. W. Free, F. H. Jennings, H. V. Scott, K. E. Tolhurst, J. B. Yaldwyn, and R. R. T. Youna;, and put up a total score of 554.

Auckland, aided by perfect weather, put up a brilliant score of 654, and Canterbury came second with 642.
