Name Change

Representatives of the Victorian Junior Football League waited upon the Victorian Football League at its meeting last night, and asked its sanction to change the names of teams in the junior competition to those of the Victorian League second eighteens. The Carlton junior team, for instance, would be known as the Carlton second eighteen. (Herald April 05 p10)
