Cricket match report, poem

Thanks to Ray for the items.

A report from a Sunday cricket match between W. G. Goetz staff and the Goetz Die Shop, undated other than a reference to November. The report includes that “Ernie Pond after being hit for six first ball, realised he had 2/- on the game & so took three quick wickets.” Two Shillings shows that the game was during a pre-decimal currency year (i.e. prior to 14 Feb 1966). Other than that, the year and date of the game remains a mystery!
