THE PROPOSED DISTRICT UNITED FOOTBALL CLUB. In another column we publish a report of a meeting held at East Barry on Friday evening last in connection with the proposed establish- ment of an united football club for Barry and Cadoxton. We have already commended the movement to the favourable notice of the public, and we sincerely hope that nothing in the form of opposition will now be raised on the part of those from whom the promoters may particularly look for support and co- operation. There was, we are sorry to state, something of the nature of antipathy amongst a few of the members of the Barry Club present at the meeting referred to, but we trust, in the best interests of the good old national game, that this unfortunate feeling will at once be nipped in the bud, and that the general body of footballers in Barry and Cadoxton will joitn hands in a determined effort to form a club worthy of so progressive a district. If the united club is to be a suc- cess, it must of necessity be composed both of playing and subscribing friends from all parts of the district, and nothing but hearty and undivided co-operation can make the move- ment a success. We were glad to see such gentlemen as Messrs W. H. Morgan, W. M. Douglas, R. G. Morris, T. H. Morgan, W. Murphy, J. Tobin, and other prominent figures in local football present at Friday evening's meeting, and although unable to be present themselves on that occasion there are other gentlemen in the district who are equally concerned in the formation of the proposed club, for, shortly after the conclusion of the meeting, a letter from Mr R. T. Duncan, of The Buttrills, was handed to the chairman, and it is a pity, we think, it did not arrive in time to be read to those present. Mr Duncan's letter was a healthy and en- couraging one, and read as follows :â Barry Dock, July 31, 1891. DEAR MR. DOUGLAS,âI have your note of yes- terday, and very much regret that I shall be unable to attend your meeting to-night. The idea of amalgamating the two clubs is, I think, a very good one, and nas my hearty support. An effort should be made to turn out a first-class XV. for next season. If I can be of any use to you kindly let me know. Yours very truly, R. T. DUNCAN.

CALENDAR FOR NEXT WEEK.
