A SECTION OF THE 6,000 crowd which watched play in the soccer match between the touring Trinidad team and Jamaica at Sabina Park on Monday night last. These spectators are looking on from the grandstand on the western side of the ground. Although the match was not a particularly good one there was a lot to make the fans cheer, especially in the first half which was very fast. Jamaica are ahead in the three-game series. The second "Test" will be played on Saturday night, and the last on Monday night. There should be some good football tonight as the Trinidadians and the Duke of Cornwall's Light Infantry meet.
