    Not sure about this one, but I have a copy of the Missfire which says that the Canadian Army played a match against the 'Go Aheads' (the team from Deventer) and lost. They were all complaining how our goals were offside and the ref was obviously biased. Pretty fun to read.

    According to an entry in the Irish Regiment of Canada war diary entry date September 21 1945....

    About 80 all ranks, including the entire Pipe Band, drove to Utrecht today to witness
    the final ball game between the Perth’s and the QOR’s, only to have the game postponed
    on account of rain.

    So if you can get hold of the Diaries from one of these two Units, you will likely find your answer. Sorry I can not be of any further help.
