Football

The combined St. James team has already won its spurs as the best Parish Team in the island. It is a pity that it will have no opportunity of meeting the Trinidad visitors.

The conditions on which that team might have come to this end of the island were that two hundred pounds should have been guaranteed for the match. It was a demand so exorbitant that one wonders why the Trinidadians have been asked to send a team to the island.

Is it to encourage football in every part of Jamaica, or to show a proud balance sheet?
