Boer War – Tim Roper

February 1900

Mexborough & Swinton Times – February 23

News has been received during the past week from Timothy Roper who has arrived at Durban.

He speaks highly of the treatment received during the voyage to the Cape. He also wishes to expresse the wish that his clubmates will win the Hatchard Cup.

“Tim” has been missed very much by his club. Of late, there has not been the same sting in the attack that there used to be formally.
