ARDROSSAN ENSIGN SWIFTS 6 - ARDROSSAN ENSIGN 0
This was the issue of the game played on Seafield Park last Saturday (29 December 1888). Why then did the committee of the Ensign club not send the Swifts to Annbank to play their cup-tie? Had they done so, the Ensign might have been in the hunt for the Ayrshire pot longer than they were. Ensign's captain, A C Allan, like the rest of mankind, has now joined the matrimonial club which, I hope, he will faithfully perform all the usual duties incumbent on him as evincing the esteem in which he is held by the members of the club which he captains, together with a number of friends. I am glad to say they presented him with a very handsome timepiece bearing a suitable inscription. I have no doubt when he looks at it, he will ever reminded of the many forty-fives he has fought for the Ensign. I wish him and his better half the compliments of the season, hoping at the same time, they may both enjoy long life, health and prosperity.
