A new club at Rochdale


May 21, 1907
The adjourned public meeting of Rochdale football enthusiasts, who last week decided to form an Association football club, was held last night in Baillie-street, Council School, Rochdale.

Mr. Wild presided, and stated that a good beginning had been made. The committee of eight members had already taken up one hundred and seventy shares, and there was every prospect of the club being well supported.

There would, he said, be no difficulty of being admitted to the Manchester League, and first class players in that League had already offered their services.

Mr. Charles Sutcliffe was appointed the solicitor.
