F.A. TROPHY GAMES

PLAY THIS SEASON

NO CHATHAM CUP MATCHES

The interprovincial Association football competition for the F.A. Trophy is to be continued this season, according to a unanimous decision of the council of the New Zealand Football Association last night, but the Chatham Cup club competition is to be cancelled.

Members pointed out that the games for the F.A. Trophy never exceeded four or five in number in one season, and were limited to the representative teams of four major provinces. Many- more games were played in the Chatham Cup competition.

"The council is reluctant to see the Chatham Cup competition stopped, but in all the circumstances considers the postponement of the competition for this season in the best interests of the country and the game," declared the chairman, Mr. Frank Campbell.

It was decided to continue with the Brown Shield games for minor associations in the North Island and the Peter Dawson Gup matches for minor associations in the north of the South Island, though subsidies will not be granted.

Decision on whether the usual school competitions should be continued was left to the authorities in the districts concerned.

The following committees were appointed:—Finance, Messrs. H. H. A. Renai (convener), F. Campbell. E. Hollis, J. M. Oilier, and W. L. Wilson: competitions, Messrs. F. Sanders (convener), W. B. Hicks. W. J. Vaney, J. H. Dick, and W. G. Bryce; suspensions and protests, Messrs. Hicks (converer), Bryce. Dick, and B. T. Martin: schools, Messrs. Vaney (convener). J. Y. Walls, Sanders. Dick, and Hicks; emergency, the chairman of tho council and conveners of Ihc finance and competitions committees.
