Our opening match in the Football Combination took place at The Valley. It ended in a 4-1 victory for Charlton Athletic Reserves, and we are prepared to agree that the better team won, though we do consider that the margin was a little harsh in respect of our team's display.

 The four Charlton goals were as a result of goal-mouth tussles, all being from the region of the six-yard line, which gave George Taylor little opportunity of parrying them. From our own viewpoint, it was the display of our forwards that brought the most satisfaction. The right-wing of Eric Parsons and Tommy Southren combined very well, Tommy in particular bringing off some brilliant moves. In the centre Stan Johns made his debut in our Reserve XI, an celebrated by scoring a very good goal from some distance out.

Our first home Combination game of the season was not satisfactory, for we lost by two clear goals to Southampton Reserves in a game that could easily have been won.

 The Saints took their chances and took the points, and there were quite a numer of lessons to be learned from the game. When these are put into effect we shall undoubtedly do better, but it is obvious that we cannot afford to waste chances when they are there and still expect to gain the spoils.
