The Spike or Victoria College Review October 1929
The Senior Team will probably not differ much from that of last year. Mackenzie, who was in such good form with the bat and gloves last year, will be again out, while McLeod, Bagge, Leys, Osborn, Bailey, Nelson, Peter Caldwell and Wilson are amongst those of last year's eleven who will be playing with us again. Hollings, who has been associated with the Club for years, and ever since it has been raised to senior status, will not be with us this year, and he will be greatly missed both on the field and off. He has done much for the Club, and he takes with him the Club's best wishes for the future. Greig, too, has left us, being transferred to Palmerston North, and Vietmeyer will probably not be playing in Wellington this season, as it is on the cards that he, will be transferred to parts unknown. Chances are, too, that A. C. Tripe will be playing with us only till Christmas, when he will probably be leaving the country.
New players who are joining up with V.U.C. are: R. E. Tripe, who is now back from Auckland; MacAllan, of Parnell, Auckland, who is a good dashing bat; Kirkcaldie, of the Wanganui Collegiate School First Eleven, and who is said to be a very promising bowler; Cowan, of the High School Old Boys' Senior Team, Napier; Rae, of Eastman's Colts' Team in Dunedin; and Walker, who played senior for the Eltham Club in Taranaki. These players should make up for those we are losing, although the Club sadly needs a good fast bowler.page 50
Junior players likely to be promoted are: Dormer, who batted really well for the Junior A Team last year; Robinson, who was in the Junior Representative Team last year; Paetz, a good bat and a good field; and Chadwick, who played some fine innings last season.
