Liverpool F.C.: The annual meeting of 1895


June 14, 1895
At the annual meeting of the Liverpool Football Club on Friday it was reported that the total receipts during the past season had been £909 17s 8½d, including over £800 in gate money.

The treasurer complained strongly about the smallness of the subscription list, which only amounted to £59. The membership fee is lower than that of any other leading club, and yet it was stated that great difficulty was experienced in collecting the money.

The season commenced with an adverse balance of £314, but the money now in hand will enable the club to clear off all liabilities, with the exception of £140, owing in respect to of the new grand stand.

The players` tour cost the club £40, and there was a loss of about £12 on the complimentary banquet. One payment in connection with the tour was an item of £2 17s for damage to a railway carriage.
