Batting Gloves Again!

Batting Gloves Again!

The Annual Meeting of the Cricket Club was held at the beginning of the term when the following officers were elected. Club Captain, H. R. C. Wild, Hon. Secretary, A. G. Wicks, Hon Treasurer, A. F. Wilton, Committee, D. K. Carey, D. S. Dean, G. S. Sains bury, and J. R. Stevens. Mr. R .W. Osborn was unanimously elected a life member in recognition of his great services to the Club.

The coming season promises to be a very successful one. All the seniors, with the exception of Ken Struthers, who is leaving to take up a position in Palmerston North, will be turning out again . The team is one of the youngest which the Club has fielded for many years, and after the run of successes at the end of last season, everyone is very keen. If the batsmen give Tricklebank and Dean a little more support than last season, very good results may be expected. We are informed that the Student's Association will present a brand new pair of batting gloves to the first member of the 1st. XI to score a century. The lower grades should be stronger than last year (we hope the Junior C's will be stronger anyway) and Ted Blacker's team is already in training. The following teams have been entered in the Competitions. Senior, Second Grade. Junior B1, Junior C, and 3rd Grade. Matches start on the 20th October, and net practices about the 17th. Indoor practices will be held on Saturday afternoons before matches commence, and members should watch the notice board for particulars of these. All members should keep the Christmas Tour in view. Games are played against Wanganui, Rangitikei south and North Taranaki. Besides being a delightful, and inexpensve holiday, it is a splendid opportunity to develop talent and gain confidence in matches. (For an account of last Tour buy a copy of " Smad," Vol. I. 1934).

We hear that the N.Z. University Cricket Council almost an accomplished fact, and "Smad" congratulates John Carrad (the originator of the scheme and last year's Committee on their succesful efforts The selection of a N.Z. University XI should give an added interest to University cricket, and be an incentive to keen play.
