Parramatta's Poor Form Against Eastern Suburbs [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus — 19 April 1950

SParrarnatl's r. Form Against Eastern. Suburbs Parramatta.had its worst "off-day" when it was badly defeated by Eastern Suburbs:% at the Sports Ground on Saturday. The scores of 17-4 are a clear indication' of Easts super iority. The tricolours took full ad vantage of Parramatta's numer ous mistakes. Parramatta never at any stage really played as a team. Elementary mistakes on many occasions cost the team points. The- blue and golds had an opportunity for an early lead when Schomberg broke through, but his pass was mulled with the line open.

Footpaths Instead Of Warning Signs, Dept. Suggests Instead of erecting school warning signs in Burnett Street, Parramatta West, the Transport Department has urged Holroyd Council to construct footpaths there. Council recently asked the de partment to erect signs on the corner of Railway and Burnett Streets, used frequently by chil dren attending Parramatta West Public School. The Department told council, last week, that its officers and Police Traffic Branch officials had .examined council's proposal. Observations disclosed t h a t school children and pedestrians were forced to use the roadway in Burnett Street, because' the unmade footpath area, and road shoulders, were covered with heavy paspalum growth.
