The T. B. + Q. S. football match was played this half in March /67. We played hard for nearly an hour + at last got 1 game. Which again showed the good of having backs for the QS. only had two + we had 4. We had by far the weaker eleven but it was the having backs that prevented us from being beaten. Just reform the finish D. Davus Q. S. picked a game having carried the ball 3 long paces. It was a very good game indeed + the T. Boys played extremely well together.
