BENDIGO DISTRICT FOOTBALL ASSOCIATION
Mr. L. Hernian wrote offering a trophy, valued at £5 5s, to be given to the player kick ing the greatest number of goals in premiership matches. The secretary pointed out that such a competition would cause much jealously amongst players, and he moved that Mr. Herman be asked to donate the trophy to the club kicking the most goals. The motion was carried.
