At a meeting of the Lancashire Football Combination held in Preston on Tuesday evening the following matches were re-arranged: Colne v Newton, April 21; Clitheroe v Wigan, April 1; Burnley v Wigan, March 31; Colne v Stalybridge, April 7.
The representatives of the two remaining directors of Stalybridge Rovers agreed to play at Wigan as per programme, and after the match consulted their players to arrange for the continuance of the club to the end of the season.
Wigan Town were fined 5s. for playing Yuill before he was registered, and Atherton were fined 5s. each for playing Gore and Beckett.
Carlisle applied for a decision as to their position next season. The committee ruled that neither Carlisle nor Workington had any necessity to apply for re-election next season under Rule 1.
Turton asked that their match with Clitheroe should be replayed owing to an unofficial referee acting. The committee decided that the match should stand.
