Congratulations and best wishes to Captain Withington! There is every indication that the football team which he leads will be distinctly above the average. The foundation has been laid in the past two seasons for a permanent coaching system on the right lines, and the indications are that only a few positions will have to be filled by new men.
Forecasts in regard to the football season of 1910 may be unsettled by radical changes in the rules of the game. But it is reasonable to expect that the game will not be so altered that a team which is strong under the present rules will not also play well under new rules. The coming season promises to bring interesting developments, and is quite sure to be a critical one for the game.
