100 Years Ago Today, 7 May 1920

Age (Melbourne, Vic. : 1854 - 1954), Monday 3 May 1920, page 10

The opening games under Soccer rule at Middle Park were well attended, the most interesting game being between Albert Park and St. Kilda, The teams, with W. Cumming as referee, lined up as follows:— Albert Park: H. Barnett, Rae, Mackie, Hart,
R. Barnett, Reid, Byley, J. Anderson, Clayton, T. Anderson and Hood. . St. Kilda: H. Lowe, Lamb, Cann, Spencer, Cameron, Keabury, Golding, Church, T. Lowe, Bulman and Slade. The saints won the toss, and the Park kicked off against the wind. Lowe ahd Church made play down the centre. Mackie relieved the pressure, and Lowe shot outside shortly after. A corner to St. Kilda looked dangerous, when Slade gained pssession in the mouth of goal, but the shot was blocked by Rae. St. Kilda still pressed, and good efforts by Lowe and Church were spoilt by the high wind. The Park next had a turn at attacking. T, Anderson broke through, only to be well tackled by Limb, and Claytons shot went past the post. The Park though playing against the wind, continued to have a fair share of the game until Church got going for St. Kilda. He centred to Lowe, who shot hard in. but the ball hit the post, and bounced out of danger. At half time the score sheet was blank. The restart saw the Saints open with a strong attack, only good defence by Rae and Mackie keeping them out until T. Lowe got his head to a fine centre, completely beating Harnett. He put St Kilda one up. From the centre kick the Park attacked, Cann clearing trom T. Anderson, and another rush by the Saints forwards brought the second goal,T. Lowe again break-ing through. In the closing stages the Park had the most of the game, Anderson making several good attempts to score, but the Saints defence was sound. A good game ended in a win for St. Kilda by 2 goals to nil. H.M.A.S. Submarines paid a visit to Spotswood, and after leading at half time by 1 goal to nil, ran out easy winners by 6 goals to nil. Melbourne Thistle received Welsh United as their first opponents and scoring, through Acquit-toff (2) and J. Anderson, gained a victory by 3 goals to nil. Burns were to have played Windsor, but owing to some misunderetanding, failed to turn out, so Windsor will be awarded the points. Windsor defeated Thistle by a goal to nil in a friendly match.

Thirteen teams, representing eight schools, are participattng in the competitions, comprisng A and B grades, the former taking in boys under fourteen years, the latter limiting the age at twelve years.

Results:--A grade: Wallsend v. Merewether, the former team won, 2-1; Meehan scored for the losers, J.Blake for the victors. Marist v. Hamilton P, 1-0; victory for Marist, King scored. Adamstown v.

West Wallsend against Wallsend played T. Coates in his old position of outside right, and evidently he was a success. In Weston's ranks Lambert played centre half, and put Gilmore in as full-back. In view of the point which Weston dropped in their home match, it is likely that Lambert will decide upon a return to full-back and play Gilmore in the forwards, and make Jack Seddon, the ex-Magpie player, centre half for the game against West Wallsend on Saturday. The question of allowing substitutes to take the place of injured players has long been a matter for argument, and up to the present Newcastle has always followed the rules laid down by the New South Wales F.A. Provided the captains and referee agree, first-half substi-tutes are allowed in Sydney this year, and it is pointed out that until the new rule has been passed by a meeting of Newcastle delegates, the allowing of such substitutes is not in order. Senior fixtures for Saturday are : Hamilton v Adamstown, at Hamilton (referee, W. Stott); Weston v Wallsend, on the latter's ground (J. Dunne: West Wallscnd a bye.
