First season losses but ‘clean and scientific Soccer’

The directors were still upbeat though and noted that the season’s four biggest games had been hit by bad weather and that the new club was operating in a rugby stronghold. They reported that the team had ‘provided the spectators with such clean and scientific Soccer that success was practically assured from the first match’.
