On Friday evening, ai the Maltsters' Arms Hotel, the annual general meeting of the Pontypridd Cricket Club was held, Mr Vazie Simons in the chair,, when there was a good attendance. The balance sheet, which was adopted, showed that the club had sustained a loss of £6 4s. 6d. upon the year's working, the total deficit being B32 15s. Od. The dona, lions from outside sources were £ 31 13s. Od., the members' subscriptions amounting to only £4 7s. 6d. The officers elected were:—secre- tary, Mr J.

Summers, G 0. Evans, Aneurin Jones, C. Ivens, and W. M» Walters. Strong complaints were made that "JJIG amount received for members' sub- scriptions last season was ridiculously small, and it was decided to raise the annual sub- scriptiou to five shillings despite protests from a few members. Mr W. E. Summers referred t,, the excellent services rendered the club by Messrs V. Simons and W. Gage, tobacconist. Had it not been for their assistance they could not have struggled through the strike. A new and excellent pitch had been laid on Ehe Ynysangharad Ground at a cost of j630. and of that sum Mr Simon had himself given and collected :£27, and Mr Gage had given 95. In consideration of their admirable ser- vices he proposed that the two gentlemen named be elected life members of the club. Mr Edmund Leyshon seconded, and the resolu- tion was carried with acclamation. Mr Simons briefly thanked the club, and expressed a hope It would increase and prosper. A number of members from the Porth Club were present and it was explained fhat that club had decided to throw in its lot with Pontypridd, s) that there is every probability that a. strong club will now be established in Pontypridd. A vote of thanks to the retiring officers con- eluded the meeting.
