Football. [Newspaper Article] — Creswick Advertiser — 10 April 1914

Football. It is pleasing to note that steps are being taken early this season to get the good old "king-winter" game—football —started. Already several clubs have been formed in the district, and on Wednesday evening a Creswick club was formed. Of recent years the association matches have been started io this district about June, but it is anticipated that the beginning of May will see things going in full swing. The present outlook is very promising, and many of the players seems to be itching to get in the midst of the good old game as early as possible. Last season, the public was treated to some close, exciting anr'l well fought games, the premiership match being won by Newlyn. This season the expectations arc gOtvL, as not only have we the players o'f last year, but a number of "colts" anxious to fill the vacancies caused by the re tirement of those who have seeD their best days at football. It is pleas ing to note that Smcatat'. have formed a club this season, ami at least hal...

Monday morning last broke some what damp, there being light showers, and it was leared that the success ol the Easter Monday sports' would he uiarrcd by wet weather, but such did not eventuate, for as the day advanced the climatic conditions improved lo a great extent. However, there is no doubt that many in (Ik: neighboring towns, such as Daylesford and Halla rat, did not make the trip to Creswick in view of the unpromising nature of the elements.
