FOOTBALLERS' BAZAAR. Great Financial Success. Over £100 Raised. [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 7 March 1914
FOOTBALLERS' BAZAAR. Great Financial Success. Over £100 Raised. At the outset very few dared the estimate of £100 being realised as the outcome of the bazaar organised for the purpose of liquidating the debts incurred last season by the Senior Football Club. yet this amount and over has been cleared. The amount actually required to pay off the liabilities of the past season, and give the incoming com mittee a clean sheet, was £61, and it was generally agreed that if the effort succeeded to that extent all would be satisfied. For a considerable period events moved slowly, and rather meagre support was forth coming, in fact, so small was the promise then that the more pessimis tic declared it would result in failure. Just at this time, however, something flavoring of dissension occurred in the committee controlling arrange ments, the split which followed result ing in the breaking away of a number on the committee. This, perhaps, was just a fortunate, incident, and accounts largely fo...

McColl in adding 33 for the seventh wicket. McColl got 21 (one 4) at a 'critical stage. After Anderson had been bowl ed for nothing Don McColl hellied his captain to add 24 runs.
