In the absence of the Chairman at this meeting, the secretary was acting chairman and MP took the minutes.

The minutes of the January meeting were read and the following matters did arise. The Kit purchased did not include net balls. It was felt 12 match balls would be enough for nets and the season. A trophy has been agreed between us and Friary Grange C.C.
