BARRY AND CADOXTON DIS- TRICT UNITED FOOTBALL CLUB. A joint meeting of leading members of local football clubs was held on Friday evening last at Jones' Temperance Hotel, High-street, East Barry, for the purpose of taking into further con- sideration the advisability of forming a united football club for the district. There was a good representative attendance, and the chair was occu- pied by Mr W. M. Douglas, Cadoxton, amongst the gentlemen present being the following :— Messrs W. H. Morgan (Lloyd's Bank, Barry Docks), R. G. Morris T. H. Morgan (ex-captain of the Cadoxton Club), F. C. Boys, G. Waters, J. H. Nelmes (secretary pro tem.), and J. R. Llewellyn (all of Cadoxton); W. Ekers, Holton J. Panniers, W. Murphy, W. Davies, and others belonging to Barry. The Chairman invited a free discussion of the proposal to establish a united football club for the Barry and Cadoxton district, and several gentlemen spoke in favour of the movement, par- ticularly Mr W. II. Morgan and the Chairman, but Mr W. Murphy and Mr J. Panniers stated that the members of the Barry Club were not dis- posed to amalgamate, and would not play on the ground at Cadoxton, Mr Panniers adding that if the Barry club joined the united club another club would at once be formed at Barry.—The Chair- man pointed out that the question of ground was I not then under consideration all he wanted the meeting to determine was as to the advisability of forming a district club. Personally he should be glad to see a club formed which would do credit to so rapidly growing and thriving dis- trict. Eventually, on the motion of Mr R. G. Morris, it was resolved by a large majority that a district united club be formed, and it was under- stood that steps would at once be taken to obtain a thoroughly good fixture list for the coming season.—Messrs W. M. Douglas, T. H. Morgan, J. Tobin, W. Murphy, J. Davies, W. Ekers, and J. H. Nelmes (temporary secretary) were ap- pointed a sub-committee to make enquiries as to a suitable ground.—We understand that fixtures have already been arranged with most of the best local clubs, including St. David's, Llandaff, Canton, Cathays, Tyndale (Gloucester), &c.; and the best football players in the district have pro- mised to join the new club. We hope, therefore, there is a good future in store for football in the Barry and Cadoxton district.
