ANNUAL DINNER OF THE BARRY FOOTBALL CLUB. On Wednesday night last the Barry Football Club held their second annual dinner at the Barry Hotel, Barry. Mr. J. S. Robinson occupied the chair, and among the others present were- Vice-president, Mr- W. H. Morgan (Lloyd's Bank), Mr. J. Hosgood (vice-president), Messrs. A. Mederoft (captain), J. Davies (vice-captain), D. Farr, J. Davies, H. Jones (hon. sec.), A. Ree", F. John, James Porter, John Porter, C. Taylor, Griffiths, T. Morris, J. Jones, Dunny, W. Murphy, T. Sanders, S. Attwell, Thomas Rutter, G. Clements, S. Williams, etc. After an excellent spread had been disposed of Mr. W. H. Morgan proposed The Football Club," and said he did not know until that evening that he had been elected a vice-president of the club, so that they could not expect a first-rate speech, which he might have given them if he had known it a few months ago. (Laughter.) However, he was very pltased to be connected with them—(hear, hear)—and whatever he could do in the way of coaching—he had given over all kinds of running, except running into debt — (laughter) — as he was an old footballer, perhaps the advice he could give might be worth following. (Hear, hear.) He thought the secret of a good football club lay in having a good second fifteen to the back—(hear, hear)-and it was the dutv of every member of the club to do all in his power to push forward the interests of the club. He coupled with the toast the name of their excellent andpopilar captain, Mr. Medcroft. (Applause.) Mr. Mederoft, in responding, said Mr. Morgan had greatly honoured him, and he was pleased, indeed, with the nice things he had said about the Barry Club, which he hoped would prove itself worthy of those compliments by endorsing the advice of an experienced footballer like Mr. Morgan. (Applause.) He hoped the club would be better in the ensuing season than the last, and, as they had some first-class fixtures, they would have plenty of chance to show what they were made of. The Chairman then called upon Mr. J. H. Evans for the song, Every bullet has its billet," which was vociferously encored. Mr. J. Davies afterwards gave an excellent step-dance, which was greatly applauded. Mr. J. Mederoft rose to propose the toast of the President," who had always so readily rendered every asistance to both football and cricket clubs. There was no need of saying mnre as it was well known how high he stood in the opinion of all present. (Hear hear.) Mr. D. Farr gave an excellent rendering of I- The White Squall." The Chairman, in responding to the toast of The President," said his father desired him to express his regret at not being able to be present that evening, but he wished them every success. (Hear, hear.) He (the chairman'f was very pleased at being asked to take the chair in the absence of the President, and heartily wished them well. Mr. Jones gave Maggie Murphy's Home." and Mr. W. H. Morgan gave Enniscorthy," after which a vote of thanks with musical honours was awarded Air. J. Rees, the last year's captain. Then Mr. James Porter sang, Here on my beat."
