FAIRFIELD JUNIORS v. HEIDELBERG. Heidelberg Plays 19 Men. [Newspaper Article] — Heidelberg News and Greensborough and Diamond Creek Chronicle — 1 August 1914
PAIRPIELD JUNIORS v. HEIDELBERG. -Heidelberg Plays 19 Men. - The above match, played on the ground of the former, was in several respects the most inter- esting fixture of last Saturday. In the first place, the Juniors, who have latterly made su.Hc. a gallant. bid for a place in the finals, were playing with the grim determina tion that they could not possibly let the chance of another win go by; and in the second place, the match was made specially note worthy because, in the final quar ter, when the brilliant work of the Juniors had the game about won; it was belatedly discovered that -Heidelberg was playing 19 men. On- the request of the cap tain of the former' team, Umpire Geddes lined the men up, and, as his count disclosed 19 men, he awarded the match to Fairfield. When the verdict was definitely announced the Heidelberg men left the field. It was a great pity that the Heidelberg team had not been lined up prior to the game, as this unfortunate mistake made an un pleasant and ...
ALPHINGTON V. GREENSBOROUGH. [Newspaper Article] — Heidelberg News and Greensborough and Diamond Creek Chronicle — 1 August 1914
ALPHINGTON V. GREENS BOROUGH. This season's return match was played at Alphington, and, as was anticipated, resulted in an easy win for the home team. Greens borough journeyed to Alphington with exactly half a team, no less than nine of their players being absent, principally through sick ness. It is. a curious tiing that just as "Love laughs at Lock smiths" so La Grippe laughs at Eucalyptus.. Here -we have young fellows practically satura ted with eucalyptus oil, and yet influenza seems to grip them with malignant ease. On the ground the team was made uip of vete rans, juniors and supporters. -The fact of Greensborough " facing a team that practically regard themselves as premiers," under such circumstances, speaks well for Greensborough sportsm.n ship. Speaking of sportsmanship it must be freely admitted that as far as the opp15osing, team were concerned, Alphington played the game fairly and with good-feel ing, but the behaviour of a sec tion of the barrackers was sim ply nerve-r...
