1955

This year’s report began on a sombre note, ‘The past year has been one of some disappointment, as we anticipate it has been for most clubs. Response has been poor, attendances bad and counter attractions innumerable.’

However, there was good news on the sporting front, trophies won this year included the Reynolds Cup, Walker Cup, Boleador Cup, Watson Hughes Cup, Wood Cup, Senior Cricket League, Basketball, Junior Football League, Junior Gymnastics, Cross Country Running to name but a few! The Florence Albion teams both finished the season as holders of their respective League Challenge Cups.

The Committee reported its financial situation as improving, for the short term at least. Among other contributors thanked was Mr. Arthur Askey and the British Broadcasting Corporation for making a Sunday Evening Appeal in ‘The Week’s Good Cause Programme’ (broadcast on the local Home Service) which raised a princely £240.
