New Midland League May Be More Even

Denaby United who were at Belle Vue, Doncaster last night, in a rearranged Midland league match, go to Peterborough on Saturday and the Supporters Club are making the occasion their annual outing. Two bus laws will be leaving Denaby at 8 AM in the team will leave from the ground an hour and ΒΌ later

Monday 6 PM there will be the Southall benefit match at Tickhill Square and then we play their last Midland league match of the season at Millmoor on May 1.

Denaby United President, Mr Sam Peck on Wednesday expressed his very great pleasure that the Midland League was to carry on. With Mr B.W.Lupton, financial secretary, he attended the special meeting in Sheffield on Tuesday.

Probably 14 clubs

The new league will probably consist of 14 clubs, as against 24 at present.

New applicants, Burton Albion, Skegness and Sutton Town, were told that they could rest assured of formal admittance at the annual meeting near the end of May, and Mr Peck said it was on the cards that if the League were a small one a supplementary cup competition will also be run, but that will would be discussed at the next meeting in Doncaster on May 12.

Possible constitution will be:

Burton, Denaby, Frickley, Gainsboro, Goole, Grantham, Kings Lynn, Peterborough, Scarborough, Scunthorpe, Skegness, Sutton, Wisbech and Worksop.

Peterborough hope for election to Division Four of the football League, and in that event they will enter their reserve side into the league.
