Mr. Morgan left us at the end of last term, and was the recipient of
a handsome marble clock from the boys~~
His place has been taken by Mr. Southwell, of St. Cath's. College Cambridge,
to whom we extend a hearty welcome. As a chess" blue," and
one who has in addition represented his college at every game of the
outdoor variety, he has naturally proved a great acquisition to the
School football and we can safely anticipate equal prowess from him
on the hockey field next term.
Ripon, 1 goal, 1 try; Harrogate Old Boys;, nil. Mr. Southwell restarted
for the School, and kicked the ball dead. The School three-quarters
then made a spirited attack, and the ball passed through the hands of
Mr. Dunwell, Trevor, and Flesher, the last-named being brought down
within a few feet of the line. Mr. Southwell then picked up in the loose
and scored. The major points were also added. Harrogate then had a spell
of attacking,. and Jameson tackled well. The School three-quarters made
several bursts individually, but the combination was not good. The forwards
again carried the ball off, and Mr. Southwell scored a brilliant try,
swerving and handing off finely. The goal kick just missed the mark.
The School pressed again, and forced Harrogate to touch down. Gill was
next prominent with a good run, and the ball went to Pickard, Trevor,
and Mr. Dunwell in turn"but the movement ended in nothing. Mr.
Southwell got off again, and passed to Trevor, who ran hard and just
scored, being finely tackled
at the moment. The goal kick was unsuccessful. No further scoring took
place, and the School won a well-merited victory by 2 goals 3 tries

note with regret the departure of Mr. F. E. G. Southwell and Mr. G.
W. Fisher from the staff. Mr. Fisher had been with us little more than
a Term, and he had the sympathy of all in the serious illness which
has for,the present incapacitated him for work. May he soon be well
again. Mr. Southwell has been a great supporter of the games and will
be much missed in all departments of school life. Our heartiest wishes
for his future success at Hymer's College go with him. We must add a
personal note as regards our periodical, whose dull pages he has helped
so much to brighten with his pithy poems, and his many contributions
to the " Slips " column.
