100 Years Ago Today, 26 March 1920

Journal (Adelaide, SA : 1912 - 1923), Friday 26 March 1920, page 3

FOOTBALL.
.......

British Association. For the first time in the history of "soccer" in this state, the Chairman of the South Ausralian British Football Association is Australian born. This honour was conferred on Mr. T. T. Thompson last week, and he is eminently fitted for the position. There was a large attendance at the annual meeting, and the number of "soldier-soccerites" was a noteworthy feature. Mr Thompson emphasized this fact, and observed that the good old English game would assuredly make rapid headway, and regain its pre-war popularity. It is considered more than probable that several new clubs will be formed during April. The former secretary (Mr. W. Ashworth) has consented to guide the association through the year. His report was adopted and the balance sheet proved satisfactory. Officers elected:—President, The Lord Mayor of Adelaide (Mr. F. R. Moulden); Chairman, Mr. T. T. Thompson; Vice-Chairman, Mr. W. F. Nightingale; Hon. Auditors, Messrs. W. Bills and W. F. Nightingale; Hon. Treasurer, Mr. B##### Secretary, Mr. W. Ashworth; and Assistant Secretary, Mr. J. D. Stewart.
