1901 Royal Marines Football Team HMS Highflyer East Indies

The Royal Marines Football Club of HMS Highflyer, flagship of the East Indies station, is a considerable factor in keeping the detachment in good health. Although the thermometer at Trincomali is seldom below 80 degrees, there is a comparatively cool hour before sunset, and football matches have been at the rate of about four a week on the Maidan during the past three months, against the officers, ships company, R.A., R.E., & C., success usually being with the club. The detachment, in force, always turns out as a cheering party.

Match Report by Wm. F. Martin Sgt (Po)., R.M.L.I

The Majority of our esteemed Corps will no doubt be pleased to hear of the success of their representitives in the Far East against our American Cousins. The Match in question, which was very attractive (as the Coreans are learning the rudiments of the game), was largely attended. Although the Britishers had the wind against them in the first half of the game, their superior play secured for them two goals to nil.

 The Game - The Americans won the toss, and, from the kick off, the play was very exciting for the first ten minutes, as both teams played hard for an opening. But, thanks to the superior play of Allen (Capt), the first goal was scored, which was followed by another before the whistle blew for half time. Nothing of note happened in the second half, as the Britishers had it all their own way, and managed to add another two goals to their credit. The game finished Royal Marines 4 US Marines 0.
