VICTORIA V. SOUTH AUSTRALIA. Adelaide, Saturday. [Newspaper Article] — Albany Advertiser — 2 March 1897
VICTORIA V. SOUTH AUSTRALIA. Adelaide, Saturday. Owing to New South Wales having won the Sheffield Shield, only a limited interest was taken in the match yesterday. There were perfect weather conditions, while an ex eel lent wicket was prepared. Trott won the toss, and decided to bat, and the Victorians retained possession of the wickets for the whole of the afternoon. For (be most part play was decidedly slow, no liberties being taken with the bowling. Trott was an excep tion, as he hit freely, cutting magnificently, but his inniugs was marred by a chance which he gave off the bowling of Evans. Otherwise he gave a sound exhibition of cricket. M'Leod played a very slow and patient game, exhibiting a powerful defence. His was a very useful innings. Giffen bowled well, and contrary to custom, changed the trundlers frequently. The wicket was too good for Jones, who was played with comparative ease. Six wickets went down for 188, and seven for 221. Then M'Michael and Giller, who are bot...

NORTH v. WEST. [Newspaper Article] — Albany Advertiser — 2 March 1897
NORTH v. WEST. The Association match between the above clubs was played on the Recreation Ground last Saturday. The Norths put their best team in the field and included a new player, Miller. Wests were poorly represented, several being absent, notably the two Mar chants. Before commencing, Monaghan was elected captain of the Norths for the day, owing to a vacancy caused by the resigna tion of Shaw. Tideman and Miller opened to the bowling of Chester and West. This pair batted steadily and looked like making a big stand but with 14 up Miller was bowled by West for 12, including a hit for 6. He will, with practice, prove a welcome addition to the North team. Keyser was thrown out by Pontifex in attempting a smart run, and Monaghan partnered Tideman. The latter was playing good steady cricket and when he had scored il be was beaten by a ball from Milne and bowled. Phillips was in for some time, but before he bad scored he played across at a ball from Milne and was also bowled. Cox dese...
