4. TREASURER’S REPORT           (Balance Sheet appended)

    The Treasurer reported another financially satisfactory season with a large surplus in the bank. He was concerned that the money to

    WP’s proposal with NW seconding was carried by 7 votes to 2 that no mileage allowance would be paid in the coming season. The

    Treasurer would honour this season’s claims.

    On MF’s proposal with JW seconding, the report was unanimously accepted and the Treasure very warmly thanked for his

    continued good work over many years.

 

5. AREA ASSOCIATIONS REPORTS         (appended)

    Harrogate & Craven,   Hambleton & Richmondshire. and Scarborough & District all reported continued activity..

11.  OTHER BUSINESS

  1. Players’ Tops. DW suggested that suitable tops should be made available for players to purchase. A firm which deals in such purchases without any involvement by NYSFA, ie. players would buy directly from it, would be sought.
