CHATHAM CUP

NO GAMES THIS YEAR

ENTRIES DECREASE

Because of the paucity of entries and the difficulty of obtaining suitable dates for the semi-final and the final in the South Island, the Chatham Cup competition is to be suspended this year, according to a decision made by last night's meeting of the Council of the New Zealand Football Association, over which Mr. Frank Campbell preSlThe secretary (Mr. Alf. Williams) read the list of twelve entrants for the competition and remarked that it was hardly worth going on with. Mr. Frank Sanders moved, and it was seconded, that the competition be suspended this season. He gave as his reasons the fewness of the entrants and the difficulty of getting suitable dates for the semi-final and the final, which, according to the decision of the annual meeting of the N.Z.F.A., wouldhave to be played in the South Island this year. The tours of the English Soccer team and the South African Rugby team would cause difficulty in fitting in Chatham Cup games there. The decision to have the final in the South Island had adversely affected the entries, said Mr. Williams, and he thought the matter should be rectified at the next annual meeting. â– General agreement was expressed with Mr. Sanders's motion, which was carried without dissent. Entrance fees are to be returned.

The teams that entered were Marist, Seatoun, Petone, arid Scottish Wanderers, of . Wellington; Western, Nomads, and Thistle, of Canterbury; All Blacks, of Buller; Runanga, of Westland; Thistle, of Southland; Northern, of Otago; and Pukemiro, of South Auckland.
