FOOTBALL. [Newspaper Article] — Independent — 12 May 1883

FOOTBALL.   The Footscray Football Club opened their fourth season on Saturday last, with sides chosen by the captain (C. Lovett) and vice- captain (F. English.) Play was started shortly after 3 o'clock, in the presence of about 100 spectators ; and although this is the first meeting of the men this season it is evident that after a few Saturday's playing together a very strog team should result, as the marking and running with the ball, was very good con- sidering the practice that has taken place. After a very good game, the result was Captain's side, 3 goals, 3 behinds; Vice- Captain, 1 goal, 4 behinds. The following played in fine form for their respective sides: - Harrison, Brown, Hutton, Johnson, Lovett, Bennett, Emerson (2), Williams, English, and Ager.
