(From "N.Z. Truth's" Wellington Rep.) Owing to Wellington playing Auckland and Y.M. and Marist having a number of players Away, only two games were played on Saturday for the Charity Cup. THISTLE met Seatoun and after a very 'interesting-' gairhe came but on top by three goals, to .two. , .. Thistle .had six juniors m their ranks, their regular'players suffering from injuries or the 'flu. . ' ; It augurs well for the future of the blues that they have such ' fine talent to call upon. Haddow is a. goalie of merit andthe way he shaped on Saturday pleased' the spectators. | Jack and Finnigan made a fine der fence. The former is only a wee chap, but what there is of him is good. His partner, too, kicked and tackled like a veteran. McLellan, at right-half, is improving with experience and is a hard, bustling half. He scored, a beautiful goal. Arbuthnott,-. at centre-half, played a great gariie, his feeding being excellent; . Meiklejohiv at outside^right, was not at all hrilliant. He tried to ..do too much on his own. Hoheyman, at outside-left, was the best forward on the field., Brown, and Murie had. a- hard task to hold the nippy. Thistle forwards, but did very well. ■ Kinder, Kershaw^.and Telford worked hard 'to secure victory and it was only -the brilliance of the Thistle defence which kept them at bay. Hutt defeated t Johnsonville. 4-3 for the Victory Cup.' Although Hospital led by 2 to 1, ten minutes before time, Diamonds eriierged victors by 5 to 2, scoring four goals m ten minutes. "^
Marist and Y.M. meet m the final of the Chatham Cup (Wellington section) next Saturday.
