Java Tour of Manila 1927

The Manila team to tour Java in spring 1927 contained 5 "bondsspelers" (i.e. players likely to have been included in a full representative side of the city), viz. Bascal (the 'keeper), Cui (defender), Medina (midfielder, or half back as it was called then) and Pacheco und Ugarte (both forwards), all five from Manila Sporting Goods, league runners-up behind Bohemian.
The tour was organised by Batavia club side B.V.C.

NB: the original fixture list included two more matches in Semarang on June 11 and 12;
      these apparently were not played;
    as Soerabaja was playing in the stedenwedstrijden between June 3 and 6, the XI to
      play Manila on June 5 was very much second rate.
