l- Football Reminiscences The Peninsula's Past Champions Recalled• In "The Standard" last issue we discussed in a very unorthodox way the various incidents of general ia terest which eventuated between 1905 and the early' part of 1909, when the -interest in the game was so universal 'that one might truthfully say that 75 'per cent of the people on the Penin sula admitted being its devotees. I am rather, pleased to see that these stray notes have awakened memories of, some of the glorious days of the past. In those days, whilst not all champions, *the Peninsula boasted a great many players whose abilities were second to none, and it pleases one to realise that the standard they set is being, to some extent, upheld by the players of the present day. But ?semust mover aislo We have much to say- yet ; and we must com plete the 1909 narrative first TED McCOMB'S DAY In 1909 the Morningtonians were playing under the leadershbip of Ted McComb, who nowadays waves the flags for Frankston, and...

You state that in 1910 "Tyabb were rather weak that year, and when they met Frank. ston they were defeated by 23.15 to 6.5." This in part is correct, but I weald like to state that on that occa sion Tyabb had only 12.men on the field. Don't you think, in scoring 41 points against the Penlnsala's crack team of the time, Tyabb's 12 men put op a fine petformance?-I am, etc, " YOUR SC$IBE Tyabb, August 2nd In the eircoumrances, we would say it was.
