The three youthful Trinidad members of the West Indies team are also leading footballers in their country. They are Gerry Gomez and the Stollmeyer brothers, all three of whom play for Casuals, last year's Trinidad League champions.

Botha Tench, the Trinidad centre-half who visited Jamaica, and J. F. Merry, who was also a member of the Trinidad team here, also play for the Casuals.

The three West Indian cricketers made their debut for the present season in a F.A. Cup tie match on October 7 for the Casuals against the Police and helped their team to a 8-3 victory.

Gomez, who plays at inside-left scored two of his side's goals. The Stollmeyers play on the wings—Jeffrey at outside-right and Victor beside Gomez. Andre Stollmeyer, another brother is also a representative centre forward.
