From oub own Correspondent. The cricket clubs of the Raglan district have formed an association, and hare arranged for matches each Saturday afternoon during the season. A trophy, to be subscribed for between themselves, is to be given to the Club winng the largest number of matches. The first was played at Te Uku on Saturday afternoon last, between the Te Uku and Te Mata Clubs, and resulted in a very easy victory for the former. In their two innings Te Mata scored but 23 runs (16 and 7), whilst Te Uku put together 61 in a single innings. The next match is between Raglan and Te Uku, at Raglan, and the event is being looked forward to with great interest, previous games between the elevens having shown that they are very evenly matched.
