They put up a great game against St. Helen's, 1 to nil being the result of a hard fought game. Mr. D. A. Gledson, M.L.A., presented the winners at the close of the match with the shield The association secretary (Mr. T. T. Mereer) states that the Ipswich executive recently had a visit from a delegate from the Brisbane Q.B.F.A., in the person of Mr. Hurst, a former noted player of Soccer. Mr. Hurst made mention of rival games which he had played in 30 years ago, on the old Ipswich reserve, and against the Bush Rats at Dinmore.
