The Spike or Victoria College Review 1937
The social team playing in the Junior C grade, had a happy and successful season and for the greater part of the season were at the head of their grade championship. After the Christmas vacation, owing to the lack of Connell's and Wilson's assistance in batting and bowling, wins became more difficult to obtain, the side finishing the season in third place. Though the team needed a steady batsman who could be depended on to get runs each week, Roberts, Connell, Campbell, and Porteous picked up a few on occasions, while in the bowling department, Desborough by guile, Roberts by talk, and Connell and Porteous by good bowling, collected most of the wickets in spite of the protests of seven other self-recognised bowlers. Richards and Wilson kept wickets admirably throughout the season.
