Saturday, 9th July, 1949

Now that the seasonbas passedthe half-way mark it is time to pause and take stock of what has been accomplished. It seemsa far cry now back. to 1944,.when the.gam~ ha~ reached an all-time low with 5 clubs In Vlctona-Prahran, i Brighton, South Melbourne United, South! Yarra and the combined Moreland- Hakoah. with only the bqlstering of two Air Force teams' making a competition possible. This year we seea competition ?f ?O senior clubs, 20 reserveteams and 30-odd Jumor teams (to produce the stars of tomorrow). This has n~t been achieved without a lot of spade work-much of it behind the scenesby T' ~ seldom-thanked, but often abused gentle~t1, the club-secretary. Heavy work has fallen on the shoulders of Association officials, so that at last it has been fourid necessaryto put club men on the Victorian Soccer Council. All have more than justified their inclusion, not one having missed a Council meeting smce their election, besides sitting on various sub-committees (and in some caseshelping tol produce this much criticised ~ews sheet). Credit must be given to those devoted souls, the independent Cod'ncill.ors, who have nothing or two clubs dropping out and new ones being brought in in an effort to keep the 2nd and 3rd division programmes full), but the effort has been there. ~Ij' Looking forward, we hear rumors of new clubs for 1950 (at least three to date), so that next year further arrangements will have to be mode ~o accommodate newcomers.

It is hoped that in 1950 all third division clubs will see their way clear to run reserve teams, both for their own convenience and to accommodate those ,enth~siastswho are looking for a game,and can t quite make the first team. The time has come, in many cases,for well established teams to start putting something back into the game as well as taking something out. Junior teams are the answer to this, and those Clubs who are ~oo~ingto the futu~e w~ll find the running of JuI1,lor teams (starting In !he under 15 grade where possible) the sounde~t Investment of any _fq~ the years to come.. It. IS hoped that 1950 wlll see many moJ:e Junior teams, as there ,are alr~ady a lot of boys unable to get gameswith their present clubs. Junior coaches must be found, and it is up to Clubs to. encourage anyone anxious to take an

as Moreland is on its home ground, and is a

better combination than early in the seasbn. The bottom teams, Yallourn, Sunshine Utd. and Western Suburbs will have difficult games, and unless a surprise occurs, prospects of their escapefrom dangerous relegation zone look re~ mote.' Th . . . . . e most mterestmg game. of the second dIVIsIon should be at OlympIc Park where Hakoah will meet Ringwood. &th teams are within striking distance in the fight for promotion, and are level on points in third position. ..l\.good, close, game should result. The leading team, Sandringham City, should retain its position at the expenseof Preston, but it must be remembered that Preston is a team full of surprises, and it is possible that the unexpected coula happen. Preston, sixth on the ladder, have only two victories to their credit, but they have shared the points in five other games.
