Monmouthshire Cricket Club. I The annual meeting was held at the King' Head Hotel, Newport, on Friday in last week, M Edward Phillips presiding. The annual report was as follows:—The number of members (147) shows a slight increase over the two preceding years, still the present number is quite insufficient to make the club a success, and every effort should be made to increase the membership. The county occupies fifteenth place in the second class counties' competition as against seventh place in 1903. This is entirely due to the fact that on no occasion was the team at full strength. The club's best thanks are due to Dr A. L. Tatham for his services as captain. The club is deeply indebted to Messrs. Bowden and Taylor the secretaries of the East and West football match, the committee and players, for the invaluable financial assistance rendered to the county club. The accounts sent herewith show a gain on the year's working of £ 42 2s 2d, as compared with a deficit of £ 29 Os 3d in 1903. The total debt now stands at £17 10s lid. Every effort must be made to wipe this out. A con- siderable increase of membership is absolutely necessary before the club can be in a satisfactory position. The best thanks of the club are due to the Newport Athletic Club, Mr A. J. Gould, cricket hon. sec., and Mr G. LI. Lloyd, general hon. sec., for the courteous way in which they have assisted the club.—The report was adopted. Lord Tredegar was re-appointed president, and Colonel Courtenay Motgan and Colonel Ivor Herbert were added to the list of vice-presidents. Dr Rutherfoord Harris, M.P., resigned, as he said he was connected with a great many clubs in Dulwicb. Mr Fred Phillips, J.P., was re-elected treasurer. The Hon. Secretary (Mr Aubrey Butler) resigned his position, as he felt that he could not devote sufficient time to the club. He proposed as his successor Mr E. S. Phillips. Mr Foster Stedman seconded this, and it was agreed to. A special vote of thanks was passed to Mr Butler for his services. Upon the proposition of Mr Stedman, a vote of thanks was passed to Dr A. L. Tatham, who resigned the captaincy of the team and Mr P. C. Phillips was elected captain in his place. The Hon Secretary reported that he had written to the Monmouth, Chepstow, and Abergavency Clubs informing them that the club would give a subscription of five guineas towards engaging a professional for each until they were qualified, and then the subscription would be ten guineas, provided the professional signed on for three years. The Chepstow Club had already replied, stating that they would accept the terms. The match against Berkshire, at Reading, was altered in date from that first announced to Monday and Juesday, June 19th and 20th. I MONMOUTH CLUB. I The annual general meeting of the Club was held on Monday night, and was well attended. Lord Llangattock was re-elected president for the year, and Lieu ten ant-Colon el Courtenay Morgan. Mr E. E. Micholls, and Mr Lewis Haslam were added to the list of vice-presidents. Mr G. H. Morgan was elected captain, and Mr E. Whittington vice-captain and secretary. The Institute Cricket Club, which has hitherto been a separate club, has joined the town club this year, and will be known in future as the Second Eleven. Mr J. H. Dobbs was elected captain of the second eleven, and Mr H. Vaughan vice-captain. The accounts showed an adverse balance of JEI1 2s 7d. I NEWPORT CLUB. I The annual meeting was held on Tuesday evening, Mr L. Foster Stedman presiding. The chairman was re-elected captain of the first eleven for the season, and Mr W. G. Jones captain of the second team. Mr A. J. Gould was re-appointed hon secretary, with Mr W. G. Jones assistant hon. sec. -A letter was read from Mr J. H. Brain asking if the club would allow the three professionals— Silverlock, Steeples, and Diver- to assist the South Wales team aeainst Yorkshire at Cardiff on May Ist, 2nd, and 3rd. It was decided to comply with the request.
