THE WEST INDIES may soon receive their first visit from an English representative of a soccer team.

The tour would be run on similar lines to the MCC cricket visits, with matches being played in each Colony.

Mr. Vincent Brown, Manager of the Trinidad side, which arrived at Southampton today to being a seven-week tour of England, has already approached the English Football Association with a view to sending a side to the West Indies.

He has not yet received a reply, but the invitation has a good chance of being accepted.
