EXCELSIOR 'CLUB Th cannual meeting was held on Monday, evening in the lodge-room of the Royal Hall. Cr Coming occupied the chair. A lengthened discussion took place as to the advisability of amalgamating with the Footscray and making one good club. Several of the Footscray who were present, spoke in favor of an amal gamation, but the members of the Excelsioi were adverse .to so doing, and eventually decided to form a separate club as formerly., The Secretary then read the report and balance sheet, after which the chairman presented the prizes won last year-C.

Football. [Newspaper Article] — Independent — 5 April 1884

Football. Evidently the members of the Excelsior Football Club do not believe in the moWo " Unity is strength," as at their meeting on Monday, they decided not to fall in with the suggestion made in our columns, last week, to amalgamate with the Footscray, and make a club which would be a credit to the borough. It is hard to say, what were the reasons which induced the members.of the X to take this step, but we venture to predict that in time, they will find out their folly. One good club in a borough must succeed before two second rate ones. The question of amalgamation does not affect the senior club, the Footscray, half as much as it does the Excelsior. As not withstanding the loss of surf men as C. Lovett and F. English, the former are certainr to send out a stronger team than they had last year, and will be able to prosper without the help of the latter club. Undoubtedly the X. have some splendid, men in their ranks. In Harrison-they have a player equal to any one in the boroug...
