The Spike or Victoria College Review 1937

First Eleven:

First Eleven:

The Senior XI under the able-captaincy of W. H. McMillan, had its best season for some time. It rose from bottom in the 1935-36 season to fourth in the 1936-37 season. Of the ten matches played, only three were lost and they by only narrow margins on the first innings. Bad weather affected the team adversely, potential wins being turned into draws as a result of the weather. The batting was really strong right down to the last man, the three-hundred mark being passed on several occasions. As can be seen from the averages below, members had batting averages of twenty or more, which was very pleasing in view of the weak batting of the previous few seasons. The bowling, though steady, lacked its usual sting and the need of a slow spin bowler was greatly felt. The batting honours went to Stevens, Blandford, Lunn and Wiren, while Tricklebank, Rolfe, and McMillan headed the bowling averages.
