FOOTBALL. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 30 April 1881
FOOTBALL. Tbe forthcoming football season is now fast approaching, aud most of the leading clab.3 have commenced preliminaries. A good deal of speculation is rife in football circles as to which club will hold the premiership at the end of the year, more than one being confident of obtain ing the pride of place. Nothing of any importance has yet been done in the shape of matches, &nbsp; although a few games have been played, none of which, however, are of very much importance. With respect to the matches on the tapis for the football season 1881 we shall have more to say when the proper time arrives, but meanwhile a few words on the game in the abstract may not be inappropriate. It is gratifying to find that the rules practised in South Australia are daily becoming more popular in England. In the latest accounts gathered from the home papers we find that the association rules are fest supplanting the Rugby union in metropolitan football circles, while new and important clubs...
