The first match under the auspices of the Anglo-Queensland Football Association took     place on the Pineapple ground, Kangaroo Point on Saturday, the contending clubs being the Queen's Park and St Andrew's. The clubs played eleven aside, being the usual number in     matches under this association. The colours   were-for St Andrews dark blue and for Queen's Park blue and white. Mr Shiers was

umpire for the Queen's Park, and Mr Curry     filled the same position for the other side, Mr Hudson being referee. The attendance   numbered about sixty, and most of them took   a lively interest in the game. The leather was sent rolling by the St Andrew's, who kicked up   the ground, which was slightly on a slope. The Queen's Park team, ably captained by

Princeps, defended the determined attack of   their enemies for some considerable time until at last Macreadie sent the ball through the posts, and goal one was scored for St.   Andrew's amid loud cheers. Almost imme-     diately it was seen that the blue and white were in trouble again, for Macreadie watched the opportunity and kicked the leather past the goal keeper and between the sticks and the result was goal two for the dark blue. Princeps then called on his men, but it was appa- rently useless, for, despite their efforts to keep back the enemy, goal three was kicked for St. Andrew's when half time was called. On re- suming play matters fared no better for the blue and white, who seemed completely over- matched, and not able to work well together as their opponents evidently did, no less than four goals having been credited to St Andrew's during the latter half of the play, making in all seven goals, when time was called, to Queen's Park nil the victory was a most decisive one, and the winners worked like Trojans throughout, and at a time well to- gether, and with a little more practice should take a lot to beat them. Wylie captained them, and deserves praise for the way in which he led   his men. It would be almost unfair to single out any individual player of their team for dexterity, although perhaps Macreadie worked harder than any, and with most success. The play of the dark blues pleased the spectators   most, although apparently their sympathy was with the blue and white. Princeps laboured under the disadvantage of not having, to all intents and purposes, a good team, and the   goal keepers should have been more on the alert. Some of his team did not seem quite at home, but being their first match it was ex- cusable. Amongst those who distinguished themselves for the Queen's Park were Princeps, who was frequently applauded for good play, Holland, Wearne, and Allison. All the others did their level best, no doubt, and with practice will improve. Some good 'head-     ing the ball was done by the Q. P. team,   evoking considerable laughter. A number of "fouls" occurred, which players on both sides should try for the future to avoid as much as   possible. Cheers for the losers and winners and all concerned brought the first Anglo- Queensland football contest to a pleasant con- clusion. It is understood the St Andrew's play the Rangers next Saturday, when there should be an exciting match.
