|Rushden Argus, 1st May 1914, transcribed by Kay Collins
NEW GAMETwo well-known local sportsmen are introducing a new game into the Midlands. Messrs. A. W. Thompson and W. H. Moody are arranging for a push-ball match to take place in Rushden about Feast week. The popular American game has never been seen in the Midlands, and much interest will be evoked in the forthcoming match, which will be played by local gentlemen for charity. Mr. Moody and Mr. Thompson hope to get some skilled exponents of the game on each side, and there will be a number of practice games arranged. We wish the project every success.
