New College Football Team, 1894

Football matches were played against Hawthorn Grammar, Camberwell Grammar, Albert Park Grammar, All Saints and Wesley but the school’s small numbers meant that many of the very young students had to play on the forward line. But problems were not only confined in front of goal. The boys would have to play on grounds that, often, were nothing more than cleared paddocks containing lakes and rivers.
