NORTH OF ENGLAND V. REST OF LEAGUE
BY J. W. HARRISON
DEPLETED TEAMS. The call to arms is truly playing havoc with clubs in Soccer circles. I have a communication before me from the Sandringham club, informing me that that organisation has had to be disbanded mainly owing to enlistments. Of the team's players, W. Wilmot and H. C. Mauger are already in Gallipoli, and H. Cann, G. Clayton, S. Overett, W. Andrews, F. Smith and J. Stevens are in camp. Although the Sandringham club's record in the League this, season is only three points, the goal record — 4 for 18 against in 12 matches — is fairly good, and exemplifies the excellent goal keeping of H. Bingham. It is an open secret that the, members of the Sandringham club in general are disappointed at the non-inclusion of Bingham in the international contest at Fitzroy, the opinion being that he is equal to either Robison or Russell, and this in all fairness, I am told, to the Selection Committee. However, the latter can be said to have done its work well, and, as there were only places for two goal-keepers, could not please everybody.
26 Sandringham players and 2 committee men enlisted

CITY IN FORM
From a Special Correspondent
Amateur Soccer Club, well placed in the premiership ladder, gained promotion to the First Division in its first season in Victorian soccer, winning the Second Division championship with the loss of only one point in 1949.
Two local men, Messrs. V. J. M. Dixon, who is now on the Soccer Council, and Don Bingham, ex-secretary of Brighton, founded the club, aided by a keen band of soccer enthusiasts with con-siderable experience in club management.
Most notable foundation members were Mr. J. Mclennan, ex-president, and J. Finney, vice-president, but much of the club's success is due to the expert coaching of Ralph White.
RALPH WHITE, captain, is rated one of the best centre-halves in Australia. He represented Victoria against Yugoslavs last year, and has captained Royal Navy teams in Hong Kong, the Middle East, and America.
Ralph is brilliant in the ah-, and has no superior in tactical play. Sandringham City are fortunate to have him to lead the side.
Joe Wilson, ex-Newcastle United, is the "glamour" player of the team. There is not an outside-right in Victoria to touch him. Joe has speed, body swerve, and ball control, and is a first class team-man.
Wilson is partnered by Joe Bambro, who is a brilliant midfleld schemer. Bambro makes many of the "bullets" Wilson "fires." They combine well, and have been selected for State trials.
A bright future is pre-dicted for the club's wing halves, Ron Walker and Ken Farrow. Ken was a junior player last season and is coming along fine.
Goal-keeper Jim Mackie is a newcomer to the team. He has shown impressive form in recent matches and will be hard to shift. That's Jim Mackie in the picture, punching clear in a goal-mouth scrimmage in which Don Bingham and Ron Walker are prominent.
Utility man Don Bingham is a tower of strength to the i side. He is equally at home at half or full back and is a sound constructive defence man. Don represented Victoria against South Africa and Palestine.
LES BINGHAM, one of the junior team coaches, was one of Sandringham's best defence-men before his injury, and the team could do with him in the line-up.
Jack Davis has impressed critics and is selected for State trials this season. He has proved a "find" for Sandringham.
Roger Parvin, normally a wing half or inside forward, has recently been playing at centre-forward. It was an emergency move but, so well has he performed in that position, club men predict he will remain as the club pivot. Roger is in line for State honours.
Bob Lomax, Joe Walton, and Alf Finney have proved a first-class scoring com bination in matches so far tills teason. and between them they may head the lists as a trio.
Junior soccer is well man-aged at Sandringham. The club runs three teams, Norm Shingles, Les Bingham, and John Phillips acting as coaches, and the current "batch" of youngsters in-cludes many future stars judging, by the games I have seen in recent weeks.
