"The following are the results of the badge and prize competition: - 1. Captain W. McIntosh 82, 2. Mr P. Marshall 88, 3. Mr J. Smith 89,
Mr Wilson Corbett, of London, has presented a beautiful silver cup for competition : the cup must be won by the same person three times before it becomes his property."
"The local club is, we believe, very much handicapped for want of suitable ground, and negotiations are being gone into with some of the neighbouring farmers for the purposes of seeing if anything can be done in the matter.
The following are the office bearers for the ensuing year:- Hon. President, Mr W. Wilson, Cobbett; President, Mr D. Fenton, P.C ; Captain, Mr W. McIntos ; Secretary, Mr J.I. Smith; Treasurer, Mr R. Duff; Working Committee, Messrs J. Haggart, J. Duncan, and J.H. Towns, with Captain and Secretary." (PA 3.5.1897)
