Invaders Will Meet All-Island Champions At Jarrett Park.
The Arrangements.
Match Eagerly Looked Forward To. Various Social Events.

The general public of Montego Bay are enraptured at the certainty that the visiting Trinidadian team will be playing in Montego Bay on Monday next January 13th at 4.15 p.m. at Jarrett Park.

As would naturally be expected, football enthusiasts and others at that end noting the reports of defeats inflicted by the visitors on All Jamaica teams, which selections they feel should rather be called All Kingston, are strong in their claims that had one or more Montego Bay players been included in the Jamaica team the result would have been different.

There is apparently, also, a strong feeling that Montego Bay, as the champions in Jamaica football for 1934-35 and yet to be defeated this season, has been ignored by the Jamaica Football Association. Now that an opportunity has been afforded of meeting our visitors, it is to be expected that the team selected by the County of Cornwall
Football Board is the strongest available and will bend, its every effort towards inflicting a defeat on our visitors, both with a view to saving Jamaica's honour and demonstrating their own football ability.

The following team has been selected to represent Montego Bay:

W. T. Hall (goal-keep), C. A. Scott (Capt.), A. Sinclair (fullbacks), W. D. Taylor, H. C. Armstrong, F. Jim) (half-backs), A. B. Campbell, V. Collymore, F. Clayton, C. Alcock, A. Webster (forwards). Reserves: L. Burnett,
L. Allen, S. Nairn.

The match will be played at Jarrett Park starting at 4.15 p.m. and will be refereed by Mr. Mike Hanna.
