Shepherd is another who l'.a> hat! <t.cq in big cricket, an I who is looked "upon as a" coming ma;-.. A left-hander with plenty of vigor, ho s-houM make good under tite able coaching :;ovr .available. Shepherd's score a gainst Southland last season will he remembered ; and he alto performed > or.ch.-tently in club matches, averagiic -l-'-l f ,! r 14 innings.
