* 1975 An extract from the committee minutes of 1975 states:- Mr E. Richards refuses to accept half share of the Jerry Rossiter Cup as he contests that the other winner was under adult age. The committee felt nothing further could be done in this matter at this stage and the award still held firm despite Mr Richards feelings.
