The annual meeting of Denaby United F.C., held at the Denaby Welfare Hall, yesterday morning, was notable for the resignations of the Chairman, Mr. T. E. Hardy, and the financial secretary, Mr, W. Astbury, who thus followed into retirement the late general secretary, Mr. J. Hancock, who resigned about two months ago.
