Peninsula Teams Kick Off Both Grades in Full Swing Frankston's Comfortable Win [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 12 May 1939
Peninsula Teams Kick Off 000 Both Grades in Full Swing Frankston's Comfortable Win Peninsula football began in earnest" on Saturday, when A Grade matches commenced In ideal weather. As was expected, the games were marked with a fair amount of uncer tainty by players in handling and dis posing of the ball. The number of behinds kicked was out of all propor tion to the tally of goals. Seaford at Mornington and Sorrento at the Naval Depot threw away all chances of success by inaccurate kicking.

Sir,-Visiting .a, certain Peninsula ground last Saturday;afternoon to wit ness a football -match I was surprised to see at the main entrance a large notice charging' children sixpence ad mission. It was always a gentleman's agreement amongst club delegates that no charge -for admission would be made foi children under 14 years of age ,the idea 'being to foster inter? est in our grand old natibnal game.
