"It is hoped the people of Waterford will patronize these League games as the club has gone to considerable expense in fitting up the Agricultural grounds for the games, purchasing their suits, &c. The people can rely 
on seeing very sharp playing done by the contesting League clubs, as they have engaged the best players 
in the county."
