Crystal Palace F.C.: The annual meeting of 1915


June 30, 1915
The annual meeting of the Crystal Palace Football Club was held last night. The balance-sheet showed that the past season was a disastrous one, the loss amounting to £1,942 16s. 8d.

The chairman, Mr. Sydney Bourne) in the course of an interesting review of the season said they could dismiss from their minds any thoughts of League football during the coming months. Some sort of football might be played, but certainly not league competitive football.

It was stated that ten of the club’s players had joined the Navy and Army, and four were working on munitions.
