CRICKET South v North [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 22 November 1924
CRICKET South v North These two teams met again on Saturday, South securing another victory to the extent of 109 runs on the first innings. Both sides commenced the match with only seven men, a few of the Souths fielding as substitutes. Souths again won the toss and Roy Gordon ad J. Menzies opened the play. Both batsmen were, however, dismissed for 5 and 9 respectively. Jim Menzies batted stubbornly for some time and appeared as if he in tended giving the bowlers trouble. A. Dezius dislodged his bails when Jim least expected, it with a beauty. Eddie Croke played very nicely for 15, and I think was' unlucky in gett ing out to a fairly easy ball. Any way, that's the luck of the game. Ted Perry played a rattling good game for 41, as did also Jack Byrne for GG not out, by careful and inter esting play. This young player an ex-St. Patrick's College student, knows the ABG of football and will undou?)t edly be an acquisition in the club this year. Both he and George Good hew had North's bo...

Commercial.
