Now for another test, I can find little about this on the net and even my Caxton set fails to give me the match details. So here goes.

2 cracking photos from the 63rd annual Oxford v Cambridge Varsity Match, played on Saturday 7th December 1946, at Champion Hill, home of Dulwich Hamlet.

2 skippers - one is mentioned - Cambridge's ALR Perry (left). Why didn't Reuters name the Oxford skipper? Or the poor old ref?



The second superb photo shows the Oxford keeper, CJ Weir, running to save and luckily his bony knee is nowhere near the Cambridge player's chin! But the narrative fails to mention who the other 2 players are, or the score, which is frustrating as it does say that both teams thus far had 26 wins with 10 draws. It also fails to highlight the large gate at the non-league ground, bearing in mind it's a Saturday just before Christmas. It's also worth comparing it to Lytham FC's ground in a similar vintage.



If anyone can provide the missing information, I would really appreciate it. Thank you again.

Just a little help, Cambridge won 3-2 with Foxall scoring the 2nd Cambridge goal. I can also confirm C.J Weir as the goalkeeper. Info for this game is definitely elusive.
