The Spike or Victoria University College Review, June 1927



The present season has been a most successful one for the Club. Four teams were entered in the Competitions, and did well in each grade. The first VI. in the senior grade, was particularly successful in the first part of the season, and Hollings achieved the notable feat of scoring three successive centuries. At the commencement of the season practice games were organised on Kelburn Park in order to give the Selection Committee some idea of the form displayed, and these matches proved eminently satisfactory.

The Annual match against Auckland University College was played this year at Auckland during the Easter Tournament, and resulted in a win for V.U.C. by 60 runs, the outstanding feature of the game being the batting of Hollings and Mackenzie, and fine bowling by Hollings and A. C. Tripe.

"Blues" have been awarded to R. H. C. Mackenzie, W. J. Hall, A. M. Hollings, E. T. Leys, J. W. Mackay, A. M. McGavin, A. C. Tripe, and W. Veitmeijer. A full report of the Club's activities for the past season will appear in the next number of the "Spike."
