Every team in tho three big Txague*
gaged on Saturday, and with The severity of the Saints' defmat at Millwall rwal have 00me am a shock to their supporters after tho interval soore. After holding llillwull all tho first half, and fur nearly twenty-five minutes of the seoomd half, the Gontbamptea de. fence broke down, and had to admit defeat by 4 goals to nil when the end oamc.
Tho match warn played at the Den, end a crowd of 19,000 apoctiaitora awe lied the Millwall exchequer by £470. The homo aide included the now goal keeper, Spendiff, and two new forwards in Moody and Brown, the old Luton players, and Southampton ako Added a good side, a good deal being expected of the amateur, L. S. Dawc.
At firs* sight the loas of four goal* would suggest some glaring weakness, but the heavy defeat does not moan that Southampton have m poor side, or that Millwall have a really great one. Pour good goal-scoring opportunities foil to one side, and all were taken advantage of.
It must be admitted, however, that the MiUwall attack waa much superior to that of the visitors. Brown and Lipabam were two vary fine wing men. The latter, by the way, 'slipped tho cartilage of ths nghft knee just hefore the end and was surgically treated. It will be some time before bo plays agafh.
Notwithstanding the moors, the Southampton books and balf-baoka compared favourably with those of Mill wall. Coatee and Ireland worked splendidly together, and the half back: were splendid tacklore, Lee and M'Alpine repeatedly distinguishing themselves in (his phase of the
Tho real weak ore* lay m tho forward lino. Occasionally the right wsng pair were seen to ad-vantage, but the hft wing waa rarely in evidence, but the inside trio were very weak.
Southampton Reserves opened the season in disappointing style, and wore beaten by Bournemouth by two goals to oil, and on the day's play the visitors wwre a smarter and better balanced aide, and deserved their win.
Of the home forwards, the extreme wingers, Blackmoro and Hybart, wore the b(«t, but tho inside men did not work in unison at all. Sal way played a good game at half, while Murphy, in tho centre of the middle line, proved himself to be very useful.
Wools ton made a creditable show in opposition to Portsmouth Reserves at the Veracity Grounds, • and the crowd were well satisfied with the form of the newly-named team. Porlamouth had a ' strong eleven out, which included Sid Mounoher, a brother of the old Saints' player.
Very few it is safe to aseume. But there k now the chance for thorn to do so at Southsoa, which has th:s soy on been visited by a number of these voracious fish.
Anglers off tho Horse Sand Fort in the quest of bass hava hooked some very large tope, but. of oourae, the Rah eaaPy broke away by means of ite tail and big fin.
In one onse an angler was fishing for big baas with a piece of bloater when his reel "gave a wild screech," and on striking he was astonished to see a 401b. tope leap out of tho water.
Needless to may he did not see his tackle or the fish again.
But a few daye-Wer the angler brought some wire traces, and specially strong hook:. Armed with (his tackle, he soon hooked a big tope, and after a most exciting time a fish of 38fb. waa •brought to gaff and token aboard the boat.
Fish of that size are certainly worth catching, and doubtless there are many anglers in this neighbourhood who will endeavour to obtain similar sport.
Thoy will do well to remember that the tope has a very powerful tail with which it will break anything but the strongest wire traces.
Also a very strong hook is required, or it will not stand the strain.
A letter recently appealed 'o a contemporary commenting on the fact that pike have been caught by means of a worm.
There is nothing extraordinary in this, as the writer has often landed pike on night lines #at for »Other anglers have met with similar experience* while fishing..for perch in quiet pools.
No doubt a heron does like a fish at times, but it does not do nearly so much harm as some people would have us believe.
