After a lapse of four seasons (1915-19) on account of the First World War the local competition was resumed in 1919. A meeting to re-form Northern Division Club was called for September 16, 1919. Apparently the time lapse had caused some confusion for the notice advertising the meeting referred to the “12th Annual Meeting” when it was actually the 13th.
At the meeting the “carry-over” Secretary, Harold Johnston, expressed the hope that during the approaching season the Club would be able “to place the good old game in its former position” and appealed to Club members “to do their best to place Northern Division in the same high sphere that it occupied previous to going into recess”. Mr J.J. Mitchell was also congratulated on his safe return from active service.
The Club’s executive was re-formed with Bob Lindsay Senior selected as President and Cyril Collard as Secretary and Treasurer. Two teams (an A and a B grade) were entered in the Association’s competitions.
Under the captaincy of Bob Lindsay Senior, the A grade team’s first match was played against Kurri Kurri at Lorn on October 11 and 18. Included in the Northern Division batting line-up, though lower down the order than in the pre-war days, were the names of R. Lindsay, H. Johnston and W. Johnston – all foundation members of the Club.
