The first football match of tbe season was played on tbe Recreation Ground, Akaroa, on Saturday, when a from the Little River clubs played a team from the Bays division. Both teams played Bborfc of men, the Bvtya team consisting of Akaroa players only, with tbe exception of 0. Hartley, of tbe Okain's Club. Tbe prospect of carrying on football in any way at all in the Bays division seems very remote, as most of the entbu. siasta have gone to the front, and although there are many players left, they seem disinclined to go on to the field. In Little River, however, there are two fairly strong clubs, Wairewa and Star, and these two oluba will play their looal competitions as U9ual. Many of the Akaroa players who played, on Saturday will go into camp on June 10th, as they leave with the seventh reinforcements.

The game on Saturday was a ragged one, the Little River players making a fair showing, especially in the backa. H. Hemingway and Pen rose were noticeable for good play, the latter- putting in some good run=. Among the Little River forwards F. Fabey, T. Brankin and V. .loblin were the most prominent. C Hartley, A. Sergigon and F Hemingway did most of the work for the Bays back?, H. Dierck, V. Armstrong, E. Staples and J. Lelievre being the best of the for wards. Little River won the match by 12 points to nil, F. Fahey, Penrose T. Brankin and Hemingway Scoring tries. No goals were kicked. Mr 0. Goodwin acted as referee.

After tbe match the visiting team were entertained at afternoon tea at the pavilion.
