SWANSEA FOOTBALL CLUB. t ANNUAL MEETING. ELECTION OF CAPTAINS. MR. BRYANT'S RESIGNATION. The meeting of the football players of the Swansea Cricket and Football Club was held last (Monday) evening at the Albert Minor Hail, Swansea, and was one of the best attended held for a long time past, and the amount of enthusiasm displayed augurs well for a successful season. Mr. J. Livingston pre- sided, and he was surrounded on the platform bv the secretary, Mr. Bryant, and a eoupie ol vice-presidents, Messrs, W- H. Gwynn and C. H. Perkins. THE FIXTUKE LIST, After the formal business of reading and adopting the minutes of the last meeting had been got over, 111', Bryant stood up to read the fixture list for the forthcoming season. This intimation is always the first received by the rank-and-file of the members of the good things in store during the winter months, and it is, naturally, cageriv looked forward to. But, Bomehow or other, everyone seemed subdued last evening. Perhaps it was the thought that Mr, Bryant was reading that list for the last time! He began by referring in graceful and tender terms to the sad occurrences, the melancholy suc- cession of events in the shape of accidents, tha.t last year tbrew a .>5100111 over football in Swansea. There were the accidents to Bancroft and Charlio Tanner, and last, aud saddest of all, that to poor Dick Burrows. So far as Ihe results of the matches went, said Mr. Bryant, the results of last jear were more satisfactory than in 1892-3, and the defeats sustained last year were all by very narrow margins. He hoped that this year these narrow margins of defeat would be converted into victories. Proceeding to read the list, the secretary pointed to the tact that there were two trips to Manchester and one to Devonshire, and that among the new clubs to be met at St. Helen's were Morecambe and Jedburgh, the latter one of the finest teams iu Scotland. The ether English teams to be were their old friends Swinton and Oldham, and Dcvonport Albion and Merchant Taylors. The fixture list was a heavy one. and no thought that if they went through them creditably it would show that each player had done his duty. (Cheers.) ELECTION OF CAPTAINS!. On the motion of Mr, E. THOROGOOD, seconded by Ah-. S. HJC", it was unanimously resolved that Mr. A. M. Jenkin be appointed captain for tho ensuing year. In response to load calls for a speech, Mr. JFNIUN said that ho trusted that thoroueh good feeling would exist between the mem- bers of the team—(hear, hear)—because ill- foeling between the members was always detrimental to the best interests of a team. If they wanted to be successful they must pull all together, and train hard and regularly, ler they had a very heavy fixture list, in concluding the newiy-eiected captain heartily thanked tho members for the honour they had done him. On the motion of Mr. SMITH, seconded by Mr. F. GoKroJf, it was resolved that Mr. J, Prescott be vice-captsin for the ensuing year. On tllo motiou of Mr. S. SOLOMON, seconded by Mr. JoN-N f MOBGAJS, Mr. Gil. Evans was elected captain of the second team, while Mr J. Williams was elected vice-eaptain. For the reserve team Mr B, Perkins was. on the motion oT Mr H. B, LETCHIK, ap- pointed captain. ELKOTION OF COMMITTEE. On the football committee Messrs S. Rice and W. J. Bancroft (playing members), aud Messrs George Bowen, W. Bowen, W. H. Gwynii, J. Livingston, and E. Thorogood (non-playing members) were elected, Mr Thorogood having taken the place of Mr E. Copus, THANKS T. LAST YEAR'S CAPTAINS, Mr. FAItR, in a brief but graceful speech moved a hearty vote of thanks t. last year's skipper (Mr. E. Thorogood), and in so deing bore high testimony to his sportmanl iUe con- duet, in standing down when he thought it for the good of the team that ho should do so. (Hoar, hear.) W. Shepherd seconded and the motion was carried with acclamation, and j Theregoou briefly returned thanks. Votes of thanks were also passed to the captain of the seconds Mr. It. Oldham and Mr. J3. Perkins. MR. BRYANT'S DEPARTURE. Then came the patnos. The chairman spoke earnestly and weightily when he roso to refer to the forthcoming departure of Mr. Bryant from Swans-ea. Ho moved "that this meeiing of the members of the Swansea Cricket and Football Club tenders its best thanks to Mr. Bryant for the faithful services he has rendered to this club and to football and cricket in South Wales, and at the same time desires to lender its best wishes for his future welfare." The Swansea Club, said the speaker, was shortly to .sustain a severe loss, aud Mr. Bryant s place would be hard to fill. Not nly tbe'club, but athletics all over South Wales would suffer by the departure of their riend and secretary, Mr. Bryant. He (the speaker) hoped that wouid not be the lust >ccasion on wfiich they would be able to ixpreos their thanks to him, and he hoped it svould be done in a more tangible form. Hear, hear.) Then followed Mr. C. li. PIREINS, who jaid ke stood up with vary mingled feelings— regret at losing Mr. Bryant, aud pleasure te think that he was going to occupy a very im- portant position. (Hear, hear.) He had always felt a deep regard fer their good friend and esteemed secretary. For years past he had been tne life and sou! of tbe club, and he felt that they could Dot in words adequately express their sense of gratitude and indebtedness to him. Mr. H. B. LETCHEH, &s captain of the cricket team, boro testimony to Mr. Bryant s demeanour on all occasions and to the splendid hard work he had done for the club. Mr. H. J- MORRIS followed iu the sallJc strain. I In putting th3 veto to the u-oeting the CHAIRMAN said: "Now, gentlemen, thi«; is no ordvnarv vote, please; let us give it with acclamation." After a long round of applause the members present rcse to their feet and I broke forth with the strains of li He's a jolly good fellow." which was sungloud and lustily. As the cheers died away the Chairman turned to Mr. Bryant and said: "I have much pleasure in conveying to you from the bottom of our hearts our gratitude for the services vou have during the time ot your secretary- ship rendered to the Swansea Cricket and Football Club," As thfe cheers that greeted the chairman's -.vords subsided, Mr BRYANT rose. gratified yet half overcome with the warmth and cor- diality of his reception. He was, he said il' lv, net Kuich of a speaker at the best of li;. -JS, but on the present occasion words .(Ui. > failed hi:r, He had simply tried to do his lty as secretary. The uutics had often been rduuus and Irving, but he had always endc; oured to behave in a courteous and I gentle, anIv manner to all the members, &1 tie had tund, as was, he believed, the caie in nineteen out of twenty eases, that the same feeling w s returned towards him. (Hear, hear.) It vas obvious that m a club like theirs a. secretary was not always able to please cv crybsdy, but lib lelt sure of Luis that they would each i;ve him crcu.i for iioin;j what ho believed was for the best. (Cheers.) He had. ho iaid, before coming to that meeting, took the trouble to look mlo some of his old papers connected with the club, and he found tU.vt when iie first took the aeevetarvship in 18b2, the tc-tai receipts for the season were but t5G, including members' subscriptions In ;hose do>. L Mr. U. L. Mc-rris was captain, snd an the coummteo wen Messrs. F. J. and E. W. Cariyie, F. J. Pardon, and H. H" Mill. It in chat yc: tic first home and home ixtures with Newport were made. (Hear, lear.) Referring te his approaching ieparturc, Mr. Lryant said that lie ihould always feci a deep and keen nterest in the Swans, t Orb. lie would take good care to have the l-wa.-i-caovening news- papers aud the Athletic Xctis regularly so he might be able to ;no\<-exactly how the ciub was going on. (Hour, hear}. After again thanking the u.ec 1: ig i«r all the kind remarks mat bad been nwJo a'i. out hUll and the good wishes of he was the recipient, tbe speaker movtd a veto of thanks to the Swansea, doctors, eripjeJ with the name oi Dr. Hopkins, for 4P the kind help that they had given gratuitously when aec-i- dents had occurred at the Svsusea Football Ground, This was seconded by Air.
