The Wellington Football Association notified that the 13th June had been decided upon as the date most suitable for the English Trophy match with Auckland. A letter from Mr. R. Carlyle, the association's representative in Australia, suggested that an invitation might be sent to Australia to visit New Zealand next your. The invitation must come early, and it could not come too early. It would be very helpful if it were known that such an invitalion had been extended, and most probably it would be tho means o£ forcing the affiliation of the State League to the Australian .Association, and ns there was little possibility of the New South Wales Association gaining any strength, that was most desirable. The New South Wales Association, he stated, existed in name only, and was not conducting competitions this year. -The chairman remarked that they were very desirous of such a tour, but it could not be considered until the difference between the Australian Association and the State League had been settled.

The £20 prize for the club affiliated to a major association _ went to Sunnier; the £20 prize -for a minor association went to Wanganui; and the £15 prize for a club affiliated to a minor association went to Greymouth.
