However, at the half time interval a match winning change was made in the WhittlpeaQ.:team ~when Don Fun ston, who had been playing in the centre, was transferred to the for ward line. The result was nine goals straight from that player alone, and his.kicking seemed to inspire his team, for they kept him supplied. The final scores were: WHITTLESEA 14 goals 1 behind PLENTY ROVERS 7 goals 3 be hinds.
