FOOTBALL Boys v. Staff
ALTHOUGH THE School football team did not have very much success against
older and bigger teams during last season, they did have one big success against one
football team who were much older, bigger, and who also had a lot more years of
experience in football.
These two teams had met previously, a year ago to be exact, when the score ended in
a 1-1 draw. But this match was to prove to be quite another story. The team the
School were opposed to were the one and only Goldings Staff XI.
Although the match tended to be a bit one-sided after the first twenty minutes it was
still a very exciting and enjoyable match for all twenty-two players concerned.
Those spectators who saw the match were able to see one of the best goals scored up
top field for a long time, but this honour did not go to the School—it went to the
Staff XL Mr. Steele ('Pop') scored their one and only goal.
As expected the boys went on to win by 6 goals to I, but only after a hard struggle,
especially in the first half when the staff's defence was still fresh, and I think the
score would have been doubled but for the staff's goalkeeper (Mr. Stevenson).
All the boys would like to thank all the staff for an enjoyable football match.
Maybe it will be a different story in the cricket match!
