It is September 1953 and the end of the season for soccer in Southland. The final game was between Brigadiers and United.
The score did not indicate the game and even though Brigadiers won three goals to two, they actually had trouble fielding their usual team. Due to the good weather lately and the fact that the ground was in perfect condition, it made for fast soccer, M. Cooper (centre forward), and R.Morrison and G. Gordon outside him. M. Cooper usually played in goal but due to limited players he moved to centre forward. Hutchinson playing right forward sent a well timed ball across field to Cooper who was in the perfect position to score. The goalie for United, Pope could not get to the ball in time to stop it. Just before halftime, United's Jasperes scored when he was part of an excellent forward movement and used his feet well to shimmy the ball around Brigadier's goalie, Ladbrook.
Pope had his work cut out for him in the second half when Brigadiers increased the pressure with constant forward attacking. The ever versatile Morrison, that can play at any position, deserved the second goal for Brigadiers.
United did not lie down and showed determination by attacking the Brigadiers defence and they were rewarded when Brookhuis scored. Morrison showed his skill again and scored just before full time.
Brigadiers: Ladbrook, Niekgerkien, Bycroft, Davies, Lamb, Hutchison, Holmes, Ottley, Morrison, Cooper, Gordon.
United: Pope, Duffin, McIntosh, van Weers, Kellock, Harris, Newman, Brookhuis, Jasperes, Thomas, Schins.
