SAN FERNANDO. Aug. 21 — The cup offered by the Hon'ble Roy Joseph for annual contest between representative football teams of the North and South, and ordered from manufacturers in England, is likely to arrive in Trinidad about the middle of next month, Mr. Joseph told the "Sunday Guardian" here today.

The cup will be played for on lines similar to that of the annual North-South Red Cross soccer
classic, and the first match for the trophy is due to come off later this year. No date has yet been fixed for the engagement, but in all probability it would take place shortly after the Red Cross match in Port-of-Spain on October 9.

Mr. Joseph offered the cup last year when a North-South match was played in aid of the Princess Elizabeth Wedding Gift Fund.
