Very frustrating that I can't find the last few weeks of the 1914 season before it all goes pear shaped. The last game was a scratch match on 4 July. The article mentions a game planned for the following Saturday and notes there are "newcomers" to the game.
Messrs Dawes and Keil organising association 14 or 15 players
Meeting at Shire Hall 8pm
Report on Meeting: about 30 present
Practice match selected from Meredith, Devenport, Nutall, Cohen, Leach, Stevens, Harding, Hilton, Melros, Buchecker (2), Blackburn, Ginn, Dawes, Goodman, Blackburn, Lochhead (2), Keil, Malloch, Holme, Black, Wiltshire, and others.

Poor attendance considering it was a hospital benefit. Ended up £6 6s (suspect the players topped that up)
