Meeting of the Lancashire F.A. (February 6, 1893)


February 6, 1893
A meeting of the Lancashire Association Council was held at the Shelley Arms, Preston, last night, when there was a large attendance of representatives. The first business taken was the draw for the second round of the Senior Cup, which resulted as follows: –

Preston North End v Everton; Bury v Bolton Wanderers or Accrington; Bootle v Liverpool; Ardwick v Blackpool.
To be played on the ground of the first-named on March 11.

South Shore protested against the result of their tie with Bootle in the first round on the ground that Smart Arridge, one of the Bootle backs, played in an unauthorized medal competition at Bangor. Evidence in support of this was called, but the committee dismissed the protest on the ground that no breach of the Cup rules has been committed.

Darwen, who had protested against Liverpool in the first round on the ground that they played the Bros. McQueen, late of Leith Athletic, who had played in Scotland in the close season, withdrew their objection.

The first round tie between the Bolton Wanderers and Accrington, which was postponed on account of the Bolton Wanderers having to replay their English Cup-tie with Wolverhampton Wanderers, was ordered to be played on or before February 22.

Fishwick Ramblers (Preston North End reserves) had reported Fleetwood Rangers for registering one of their players named Walsh, when he had already been registered by them. The clubs came to an amicable arrangement, and the matter was withdrawn.

Skerton reported Barrow-in-Furness for being late at a match on Boxing Day, but the matter was dismissed, as Barrow went to the station in time, but could not obtain tickets early enough to catch their train.

North Meols were ordered to pay £2 to Longridge St. Wilfred’s for the non-fulfillment of a return match.

Haydock were ordered to pay a player named Clarke, whom they would neither pay, play nor transfer. Chorley signified their willingness to sign the player, and his transfer was granted.
