Free Beer to cease?
Extract taken from GRFC Committee Meeting Minutes of 20 May, 1969.
It was agreed by the Committee that the Chairman should inform players at their next Players’ Meeting that due to the financial position of the Club, in future they would:
(a) Have to pay a match fee of 2/6d. per player.
(b) Forfeit having free beer after matches.
One of the above would have to come into effect next season; choice to be left to Players to decide.”
Three guesses whether it was (a) or (b).
