Concerns in 1932

By Malc King

At the Club AGM in 1932, ”a member suggested that more money might be spent on jerseys and knickers. The amount spent was £83, but he would like to see over £100 for that item. On some Saturday afternoons the team had not been turned out on the field in the way they should have been. He knew they were not going to a garden party, but on some occasions their jerseys were in a terrible state. The secretary need not fear condemnation from the meeting if another £20 was spent".

"Mr Hudson said the remarks would receive serious consideration. It was a nice criticism of the balance sheet, and would be duly observed.”

However, there is no record in the committee minutes that the matter received any further attention.
