Matters have been quiet on the Everton front for some time, but I have news that will interest you, for it concerns the prices for next season. But before I announce them, let me say that Everton directors at their meeting on Tuesday night decided to gain nominate Mr. Ernest green for a seat on the F.A. Council – Division 3. Regarding the prices of admission. The board decided to give back 3d to the public, so that the admission to the ground is now 1/3. There is also a 3d reduction for the paddock and ends of the stands, which are now 2/- and 2/6 respectively instead of 2/3. The centre of the stands are 3/6 with reserves seats at 5/. Season tickets will now cost you £3 10/- but in case anyone desires to reserve a seat an extra 10/- will be charged. Application should not be made until the club makes an official announcement.
