The All England had a meeting on the evening of the 26th when it was decided that the Eleven should carry on as formerly when they were 'piloted' by the late William Clarke. A management committee was formed, consisting of Julius Caesar, Edgar Wilsher, George Anderson, Alfred Clarke and Heathfield Harman Stephenson. George Parr was elected to the office of secretary.
