November 6, 1905
A meeting of the Management Committee of the Football League was held yesterday, Mr. John James Bentley presiding.

Bob Currie, on the Middlesbrough list at £100 applied for a free transfer. It was fixed at £10.

No action was taken to a similar application by Harry Parker, who was on the Lincoln City list at £50.

The action of Bristol City in reducing the transfer fee of James Hosie from £75 to £20 was confirmed, and that of Fred Beardsworth was, with the consent of Manchester United, reduced from £50 to £10.

Burslem Port Vale were fined a guinea for playing Vic Horrocks before registration. Clapton Orient were fined 10s for a late result.
