Batavia Trip of Singapore Cricket Club 1921
The Singapore Cricket Club (also referred to as plain Singapore in
contemporary Batavia newspapers) was the dominant football club of
the city, and its reigning and record champions at the time (they
had won 5 out of 10 championships of the Singapore Amateur Football
Association); it should however be noted no official championship had
been played since 1914.
The W.J.V.B. (West Java Voetbal Bond) invited them for a visit to
Batavia during which they played 4 matches within six days, including
the first ever match by an official N.I.V.B. selection against foreign
opposition. In addition they played against representations of the
federations of Soerabaja (S.V.B.) and Batavia (W.J.V.B.), who had played
each other on 26 March, the S.V.B. XI beating their hosts 2-0. It is
not clear whether this match was part of a triangular tournament with
those of 27 March and 1 April.
