From Sandhurst (Bendigo)
1883 Carlton fined £5 ($10) by the V.F.A. for having named Nosworthy in the side to play South Melbourne; and for having played him against Hotham, a fine of £10 ($20).
Nosworthy had come from Sandhurst to Melbourne to live, but although he had a permit from Sandhurst he had not bothered to hand it into the V.F.A.

During the half-time Interval a reunion of former Carlton players was held in the pavilion. About 50 attended Tom Nosworthy and Billy Fitzgerald, team mates of 1883 were present and Jasper Jones, an 1887 veteran, celebrated his 50th anniversary in congenial company Such former champions as Athol Sharpe, Harry Houghton Steve Lehane, ' Snowy ' Everett, Hedley Blackmore, and Ray Brew seemed firmly convinced that the game to-day is not what it was in their day.
