A NEW GROUND – AGAIN

The Fallibroome Ground was taken. It was a step in the right direction as it offered some degree of permanency, that was be an important factor in retaining fixtures, and for the future of the club. No time was lost in erecting a hut for changing, and this was followed by an extension providing baths and heating apparatus.

Sir C. D. Macara, Bt., was appointed captain. There were changes of officials. K. Maclean call took over the Honorary Secretary position from H. O. Kemp, who had given valuable service for the previous four years. Harold Siggins replaced G. Howe, the Honorary Treasurer, who had carried out those duties from the club’s inception. G. P. Higgins and J. H. Wood jointly took over the position of Team Secretary from W. E. Whiston, who had carried out that arduous duty as well as that of Hon. Fixture Secretary from the beginning.

Sadly the financial position of the Club was not good, due to the expense incurred in the purchase and erection of the new Clubhouse. Funds were raised though the popular annual dance and other efforts, but it was to take a considerable time to attain the figure required to meet the cost. A story not too unfamiliar today! Towards the end of the season the Club had one of their best victories, when they defeated a strong Waterloo “A ” team by 15 points to nil, a game in which Jack Hill played one of the best games of his career at full-back, and one in which Vic Bull excelled in goal- kicking. Vic Bull, after seven years’ service, was the only member of the original team left playing and for several years many a breathless forward must have blessed him for his long-kicks to touch.
