  Healesville Guardian May 9th. 1900

The degeneration of Cricket and Football in Healesville.

Sir, I think the time is now oppotune for the publication of a few comments on the above subject. First of all i would like to ask how can it be explained! It must be almost uncomprehensible to an outsider. It cannot be from dearth of suitable material, for are there not plenty of young men and youths in Healesville,or it's vicinity, who have in them the makings of first rate cricketers and footballers! Now is it not natural for the average youth to enter into these sports with zest. If this is so and i donot think anyone will deny it, how can you account for the total lack of enthusiasum displayed by the youths of this township. You have not very far to go to find an explanation as to the death of the HCC. For it is dead; though it did play a match lately, it was but a spasmodic effort before final dissolution. I have now come to the main point of my letter, the Football Club. Can anyone explain why there is not more life in it, I cannott. It seems incrediable. It seems inexplicable; at any rate I will leave it to someone else to explain. Are we going to have a football club this winter! Surely football is not dead too. Where are the office bearers of last season. Are they going to allow the winter to go by without making an effort to resussatate the club! Surely the blight of a premature old age has not fallen upon the young men and youths of this district. Are they going to let the season go by without an effort to to set the ball rolling! It is to be hoped not. It only requires a small effort on the part of the young men allowed to make things hum again. I think there will still be a few gentleman in Healesville who, if not on active service are still in the reserves, who would be willing to help the club along with ther advice and assistance. I have heard someone say "What is the good of having a team, we haven't got a possible chance against so and so. Can anyone say this and call themselves Sports fans, it makes me sick. It is just like two children playing at some game or other. One happens to win and the other crys and says "I won't play; you won't let me win". If you were certain of beating a team, what sport would there be in playing it. It is the uncertainty of the game that provides the sport. Even if we have no chance against some of the district teams this year, will the fact of our not playing this year give us a better chance next year. Winning or loing should only be a secondary consideration. "Play the game for the games sake" Hoping the some abler pen than mine will take this matter up and carry it through to a successful issue.

Yours eta


It appears not a lot has changed over a 100 odd years as clubs always struggle to be successful. The success of the club comes from players, supporters, the Committee and Town's people. I think we are travelling pretty well considering todays challenges. I.M 2014
