PENRITH PROGRESS ASSOCIATION ATHLETIC SPORTS. [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 6 January 1887

PEXEETH PROGRESS ASSOCIATION ATHLETIC SPORTS. On Saturday, tho athletic sports, hold 0:1 tho Progress Association Ground, cauie off with great success. Tho proprietors of this ground, although only having it for six mouths, havo succeeded in providing sports on nearly every holiday, and havo in each instance been eminently suecossful. For a very lon«r while this rising town was loft unprovided with sports, and tho residents havo perforce been compelled to seek other places for recreation. So far the association has gone to consider able expense : but judging by tho attendance on New Year's Day and tho very larpo num ber of entries, tho affair eventually will be a paying concern. Tho attendance 011 Saturday numbered somo 15(H) people, a numbor of whom came from the metropolis.

AMONG THE BOXERS. [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 6 January 1887

AMONG ME BOXERS. [By Boxer Ma job. J Tho programme announced to take place at Foley's gymnasium on Saturday even ing was quito up to its usual standard, and ' taking into consideration the numerous counter attractions, drew together a good house. The contests set down for decision were very numerous, and as will be seen below, excited a deal of interest. Tho weather was excessively warm, and the necessary exertions called for from the combatants wero trying and laborious. Nevertheless, tliey all acquitted themselves creditably, and kept the audience quite up to concert pitch. There can be no gainsaying the fact that these entertainments aro rapidly gaining ground with the public, and the respectability and good behaviour of those who delight in the ' Jlobl9 art of self defence' are marked. Tho audience on Saturday night comprised many gentlemen of good position, and New Year's Day falling on Saturday, thereby suspending operations in our leading business houses, afforded many of tho...

THE ANNIVERSARY HANDICAP. [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 13 January 1887

THE ANNIVERSARY HANDICAP. Thirty-nine horses have accepted for 1 the Anniversary handicap to be run on the 26th of the present mouth. There is no reason to expect, that the whole of the horses left in will start, but there is every reason to expect tho field to bo an es&cptionally large one for a race of this description. Any lino that might have uecn takon with respect to owner s ideas of success have up to tho present not been shown, and scarcely a horse has been backed for anything worth speaking of. That being so not a few of tho liictallieians have openly stated that they would not open on tho event until reach- ] ing the paddock, which, after all, is perhaps tlie wisest plan. I11 oar next issue I will endeavour to weed out the plums, but at present I fancy the winner will come out of tho following half doven: — The Orphan, Sloth, Phaon, Tho Wreck, Resolve, and Invader. _ ? 1 ? ?. a The annual meetinc; of tlie Biu-rangong f Turf Club was held last night.

A Runners' Association. [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 13 January 1887

A Runners' Association. I (By 'Suoespike.') Some twelve months or more ago the Sunday Times advocated the formation of an Athletes' Association. The advice was not then acted on, and overy day since sprinters havt felt more and more tho in conveniences of their isolation. It has now with irrefutable force struck a number of young men engaged in Sheffield handi caps that the benefits to be derived from co-operation are substantial and incalcula ble, and it is their intention, after the completion of Mr. W. Sidney's Newcastle Handicaps to call a meeting of footrunners and form a powerful union without losing more time. Sheffield promoters are rising on every side as plentiful as mushrooms after a u-enial spring shower, and tho urgency of th(TrSintlf!r tKSliJiselves unitedly, doing all in their power to a^si^ioimVelp' them is apparont. If something is not done to improve the surroundings and help the promoters in securing public confidence the sport of footracing will suffer, and it wi...
