There was a good muster, and after a severe struggle the Captain’s side were declared the victors with two goals, knocked by Hodder and Groves to their score to their opponent’s nil. There was a decided improvement in the style of play. A meeting of the members of the Ashburton Football Club was held on Wednesday evening, Mr A. Fooks occupying the chair, About ten members were in attendance. The colors of the Club and uniform were altered as follows—viz., to naval blue jersey and stockings, white knickerbockers, and blue and white cap.
