The Spike or Victoria University College Review 1935
Old Boys' Day
Old Boys' Day.
This annual fixture was held in the presence of the Club Patron, Mr. S. Eichelbaum, Professor Kirk, Mr. G. F. Dixon and a number of present-day students. Weather conditions were ideal. The fact that the Patron had announced his intention of presenting a Challenge Cup for this event gave added interest to the match and there was keen rivalry to see which team would have its name inscribed first. At the close of a most enjoyable afternoon's sport the Patron formally handed over the cup to the Club Secretary, who, after thanking the donor on behalf of the Club, returned it to him as the Captain of the winning Past Students' team.
