The Railway, Corinthians and Hayward-1904-05
The Victoria Hall was the venue for the 1904 AGM, and proceedings were described as "dull to the last degree". The early years and the excitement of the Casuals seemingly giving way to one of 'same old same old' as the Casuals approached their 10th anniversary. So much so that even the President and the vast majority of the committee didn't bother to attend as Mr Rowsell, the chair read out their non-attendances that seemed to be never ending.
Although, the non-attending Vice-presidents all wished to be elected again en-mass, which they duly were. Amongst them Charles Pitcher owner and landlord of The Mermaid Hotel.
