Will Footscray Enter the League? The Essendon Football Club has decided to vote in favor of the ad.. mission of a tenth club to the League. Some time ago the League de cided not to admit a tenth club, and Essendon was one of the clubs which voted against the proposal. MR. C. NEWBOULD Footfcray's New Secretary During the past few weeks much work by the Council and repre sentatives of the club has been put into a fresh effort to press Foot scrays' claim for inclusion, and the decision of Essendon is particularly gratifying., It was not decided by Essendon which club should be supported to fill the vacancy, but there is an almost unanimous opinion that if a tenth club were admitted it will be Footscray.

Alex. Eason on Football Duties. of A Football Committee [By arrangement with the Footscray "Mail," an article by Mr. Alex. Eason who is admitted to be the finest rover playing in Victoria) will appear weekly] Football fans are now. looking forward to the incoming season, and the committees of the respec tive clubs af'e actively engaged in securing players- to uphold ' the prestige of their clubs. The two most important prob lems which the committee of a club is called upon to consider at this time of the year are the selection of coach and the match committee. I do not think that sufficient consideration is given to the selec tion of men to fill these two im portant positions.. I will deal firstly with the selection of the match committee. There are three essential quali fications which the men elected to this important position must have. They require a thorough know ledge of the game, the faculty of knowing how to persevere with young players, and be men who will stand to their co...
