THE FOOTBALL COMBINATION. ANNUAL MEETING AT CHESTER. Th3 adjourned annual meeting of the Football Combination was held at Chester on Saturday. when the composition of the elevens and other matters were decitlsd uP°n- ⢠m Brougliton, Birkenhead and Wigan Town were the last thres clubcs in the table of the season just completed. Broughton made no application for re- admission, and Glossop and Port Sunlight r-etire-fl. Birkenhead were unanimously re-admitted. In the case of Wigan Town, who took up Middlewich's fixtures last season they gave an undertaking at the time that they would at least remain members of the Combination for another season. They were recently ad- ) mitted members of the Lancashire League, and now desired to be relieved of their ob- ligations to the Combination. After a lengthy discussion, it was decided that Wigan Town should adhere to their agree- ment with the Combination. Wrexham, Wrexham Victoria, and Well- ington Town sought admission to tho Com- bination. Representatives from the differ- ent clubs were heard, and as the result of the voting, which was by ballot, the three applications were granted. In the ca&e of Wrexham, it was explained by their repre- Soenta.ti) that the club would have sufficient professionals to run two strong elevens this next season. Wellington Town, who were recently members of the Birmingham and District League were at one time in the Combination, and always gave a creditable account of themselves. Wrexham Victoria have been in existence for some ven years, ana tneir reoora is » llU wioau wro. Next season's Combination will b3 com- posed of the following elevens: Whitchurch, Chester. Druids. Tranmere Rovers. Crewe Alexandra, Nantwich, Oswestry. Bangor, Rhyl, Chirk. Birkenhead, Wi^n Town. Wellington Town. Wrexham and Wrexham Victoria. MOTION BY OSWESTRY WITHDRAWN. A matter of no small moment to Bangor was a notice of motion from the last general meeting by Oswestry with respect to Ban- gor's payments to Birkenhead and Tran- meoi. When Bangor were first admitted to the Combination they undertook to compen- sate certain clubs in the matter of railway fares from Rhyl to Bangor. Since that ar- rangement was entered into Tranmere and Birkenhead are the only teams now in the Combination, and the object of the notice of motion was that the arrangement should be abolished altogether or that it should be extended to other clubs. Oswestry asked leave to withdraw too notice of motion, which waa unanimously agreed to. Bangor's obligation to Tranmere and Birkenhoad still remains. PROPOSED ALTERATION OF RULES. Crewe Alaxandra had given notice to pro- pose certain alterations and modifications to rules, which were accepted. The most important had reference to Rule 2. which now will read: "The Annual General Meet- ing shall be held on the 1st Saturday in June in each year.
