A sub-committee was appointed to consider the revision of the rules, and upon their report being made the adjourned general meeting will be held.

The following new clubs have applied membership with the Association, and their applications are under the consideration of the committee: – Preston Hornets, Rochdale Clifford, Read, Royton, Farnworth Parish Church, Southport Central, Garstang, Springs Branch Rovers, Skelmersdale United, Southport L. and Y., Skerton, Clitheroe, Ramsbottom, Lancaster, and Colne and District.
