The Spike or Victoria College Review 1937

Junior B.1:

Junior B.1:

This team did not have a successful season from the standpoint of results, but all games were keenly contested and, although sometimes outclassed, the spirit of the team was excellent and the players who stuck to the team had many Saturdays of enjoyable cricket as a reward for their enthusiasm.

Comparisons are perhaps unfair in a team which did not contain any outstanding players, but the batting of Caird (who was with the team for part of the season only) and the bowling of Howell merit special mention. McRae and Evans returned consistent performances with bat and ball. Berendson and Haplin deserve notice as young and keen players whose batting improved noticeably during the year and who should go further in the game if they keep it up. A word must be said about the difficulty this team had in page 63 fielding its full quota of players each Saturday; this factor more than any other was responsible for the poor results obtained.
