—— ■+ The Association match set down for decision on Saturday was styled “ Under 12 stone v. Over 12 stone,” but two hours after tho time appointed for the commencement of the game only one gentleman of sufficient magnitude to represent the heavier side was on the ground. However, Messrs. E. Fooks and Fowler chose sides from the few players present, and a very fair wicket having been prepared, an enjoyable game ensued. S. Saunders, playing much freer than usual, put together 23 very rapidly, a nice clean hit to long-off, for which six were run, being one of the beat of the season. No other player succeeded in making double figures, but the. bowling of Guy is deserving of mention. The following are the scores : MB. E. FOOKS’ SIDE. FIB ST INNINGS.
