The Football League supports Everton F.C.


February 26, 1892
An important meeting of the Football League was held at the Royal Hotel, Manchester, Friday evening. Permission was granted to Everton to alter the date of their match with Accrington from April 30 to March 19, this being caused by the action of their landlord, who has given them notice to quit, the term expiring on April 30, and, as the majority are in the favour of removing the stands and other property, this will have to be done prior to April 30, consequently the ground will not be in a fit condition for a league match. Mr Molyneux having explained the position of the Everton Club with respect to the new registered company (The Everton Football and Athletic Company, Limited), the following resolution was passed:

– “That the League only recognises the action of a majority of the members of any club at a duly constituted meeting.”
(Liverpool Mercury: February 27, 1892)
