WILLLAMSTOWN LACROSSE CLUB. It is now a considerable time- at the close of last cricket season-since we advocated the formation of a lacrosse club, and altough so much time has elapsed since then the suggestion has gradually gained ground and popularity -until it has now culminated in the formation of a club. It has been with pleasure that we have been able to record that practices would be held. from week to week, and that one match had been played, with the result that now a fairly good combination exists. But meantime they, were disconnected gatherings -with no ap- pointed head-although Mr H. Radford has been mutually regarded as such to direct affairs. It was therefore decided to call a meeting to arrange all details in connection with the formation of a club, and which was accordingly held Tuesday evening, in the schoolroom of the Baptist Church. It now being the end of the season, the proceedings were of a purely formal character-the object being to have everything in thorough working order for next season. Mr Radford was elected to the chair, and Mr C. F. Scott secretary, pro tem. The principal motion of the evening, "that those present unite under the name of the Williamstown Lacrosse Club" was moved by Mr J. Waycott, and unanimously adopted. The colors decided upon by the club are blue, yellow and white, distributed as follows-blue guernsey, yellow band across right shoulder and under the left arm, white knickers and blue stockings. In connection with the practices it was decided to elect a captain and vice-captain, pro tem., to superintend the play; Mr Radford and Mr A. Whitney respectively were elected. Active proceedings are being taken to arrange a match to be played in the town before the end of the season to give those who have not seen the game played before an opportunity of witnessing this interesting pastime. We sincerely wish the club success and hope to see it in full swing in connection with the Victorian Lacrosse Association next season.
