Football Critique J L Schaumburg: A useful all-round player; can play an excellent forward game. As a half, apt to defer his pass too late, but has played some valuable defensive games.

School Sport: Hockey, KES v Mr W G Dickin's XI in King Edward VI School, Stratford-upon Avon, England.15

The report states: Played at Stratford on Saturday March 23rd, the game being a fast and pleasant one. Stratford scored first, through Mr Smith, abvout ten minutes from the start; in about five minutes the scratch team equalised. The School, however, scored twice through Schaumburg before half-time, and ends were changed with the score standing at 3-1. The School continued to pressm and Mr Smith and Schaumburg added a goal each, KES winning by 5-1. For us, Mr Smith, Schaumburg, A C R Soden and G C F Soden were most prominent, the team as a whole showing very good form considering the scanty opportunities for practice this year.
