Our local team are at last successful, beating’ Greasbro’ by the narrow martin of eight runs. Such an occasion most not be passed lightly over.

Let us Invoke the muse thusly:—

As Autumn’s sun illumined o’er
The Pigott’s grassy plain.
Strong men were seen with faces set.
With stern. determined mein
‘Two points we want, two points we’ll have.” With one accord they cry
“And Greasbro’s team we’ll beat to-day.
If every man will try”:
Hushed was the breathless multitude.
As keenly there they fought:
As Moody, Milnes and Tomlinson.
Their deeds of valour wrought.
Tis done! The victors’ hands we clasp,
Loud plaudits rend the air.
For Conisboro’ team has won a match.
In spite of our despair
