A SOUVENIR Brochure to commemorate the current visit of the English Football Association team to Trinidad, has been issued by the Shell-Leaseholds Distributing Co. Ltd. of Port-of-Spain.

The brochure contains 17 pages of illustrations with accompanying short histories of the members of the touring team and of Sir Stanley Rous, secretary of the English Football Association since 1934.

The illustrated pages are the work of Trinidadian cartoonist Hu Sealy.

In the foreword, Commander Charles Hayward, president of the Trinidad Football Association, says in part:

"Every year, more and more of the world's top sporting talent is made available to Trinidad to engage our local sportsmen in the various branches of sport.

"This year we witness yet another great step forward in having in our midst, some of England's best football talent.

"While enjoying the spectacle of this, one of Trinidad's greatest sporting events, we will also be witnessing the result of great effort and personal sacrifice in bringing about such an event."
