PORT OF SPAIN, October 28:

THE TRINIDAD football contingent who went on an experimental tour of England and came out winning five matches, losing six and drawing three, returned yesterday aboard the "Cavina."

Trinidad's greatest triumph was the two-all draw against an England amateur eleven at Wimbledon. It was officially disclosed that the English amateur team may return the visit here next April.

Two Trinidadian players, Matthew Nunes, guileful inner left, and Shay Seymour, centre forward, who scored most of the goals on the tour, received offers to play in the Lancashire League, Division 3, professional teams. It is not known yet whether these youngsters will accept the fairly attractive offers.
