A curious incident occurred yesterday (Thursday) in the football match between Cecil Athletic and Trinity Institute. Trinity had scored twice and the Athletic, once when it was discovered that the Institute were playing fourteen men on their side. Three extra men had arrived on the field unknown to their players in the dense Fog, As only eleven men constitute a team the goals scored by Trinity were deducted and Cecil Athletic declared the winners by 1- 0
