The extent of the Soccer football boom in Brisbane last season may be judged from the fact that the balance-sheet of the Queensland British Football Association, which will be presented at the annual meeting of that body, in the Concordia Hall, Charlotte street, tonight, shows a turnover for the 1920 season of £1,044.

. THREE NEW SENIOR CLUBS. Three new senior clubs will join up this season — Wynnum, Alderley, and Kangaroo Point. Last year there were nine senior, six first grade junior, nine second grade junior, and 12 third grade junior clubs, and not one disbanded during the season. The total number of players registered was 796. "Although this number was not record," states the annual report, "it was highly satis factory, seeing that it was the first serious season after a lapse of four years," Soccer is to become a pastime for 50 or more members of the Brisbane Gymnasium. Instructor J. J. Betts, who played for the senior premiers, Corinthians, last season, will coach the team, which intends lo make a strong bid for the first grade Junior premiership.
