Eight Goals for Twopence

Five thousand spectators turned up at the public practice game to see how the players, ld and new, principally new, would shape after their summer hiliday. The familiar figure of James Jackson was, of course, missing, but the display given by both sides was considered very satisfactory by the officials of the club. Lindsay makes a capital partner for Grassam on the right wing, and Watson and Blackburn on the left wing, the former especially, have started the season with a capital understanding between them; and when we get our famous centre forward playing himself into form, it would appear to me that the forward line of the Hammers will be very strong indeed. Harry Stapley, being in Cornwall on his holidays, was unable to participate in the opening practice game, but I am assured that he will return on Friday, August 24, and the public will have a chance of seeing him play on Saturday next.
