NORTH WALES AMATEUR CUP. CARNARVON V. CONWAY. The final for the North Wa lt a Amateur Cup was played at Bangor on Saturday- in fin e. weather. The game for the most part was very disappointing, the Canaries being much below their ordinary form. Fouli were frequent, and a penalty against Conway enabled Carnarvon to capture the cup for which they have fought so hard in the semi-final against Beaumaris. What. Beaumaris would have done on Saturday against Conway, it is difficult to surmise. But to the game. < The weather wa.s if anything too fine for football. The ground was in grand condi- tion, soft and yielding, but it was evident from the beginning that it did not suit the Carnarvon players. The play was of a see-saw character, both ends being visited alternately, without a eat display of talent. If anything the 'Conway men were more energetic, but their finishing work was lamentable. The Carnarvon halves and backs were without exception weaker than usual. They miskicked on several occasions, and were exceedingly lucky in escaping without a goal against them. The forwards did not shine at all, and their shooting all round left much to be desired. George Henry did his part well, and stopped several dangerous shots. » « The first half was slightly in favour of Conway, who pressed continually. At times, however, the Carnarvon forwards combined well, but they were strangely in- effective in front of goal. Walter Jones essayed a run on his own, but his progress was cut short by Tom Jones, the Conway right full. Tom Roberts a few minutes later got possession of the ball fut failed to score although he had every chance to do so. Walter essayed another run and was grossly fouled by Tom Jones well within the penalty area. R. H. Roberts took the [penalty kick, but Fred Parry caught the ball and' cleared in a most business like manier. During the next few minutes, the Canarie? were at sea and did not seem to realise the importance of the game. Johnny Griffiths and M. Herbert miskicked one after the other with the result that George Henry was called upon very unexpectedly to stop a stiff shot from Johnson the Conway inside right. < The second half opened in favour of Conway, and Tom Craven with a good shot nearly beat George Henry, who had to colaced-e a corner, which was well tplaced, but beaten back. Within the next two minutes, the ball was in the Conway half. and Johnny Jones put it into the goal mouth. Fred Parry cleared just in time, and a visit was paid to the other end where Sam Parry, with a rapid shot was within an ace of scoring. At this point J. Jones left the field injured, and the Canaries at last swemed to realise their position. A change came over their play, and the latter mrt of the game saw a veritable rout of toe Conway: men. For a few minutes they were entirely outclassed, and a penalty brought about their downfall after a stubborn at- tempt to escape defeat. From now tif the en-d of the game, Carnarvon press* repeatedly, but no more goals were scored Tom Roberts, just before the whistle went. had the Conway goalkeeper at his n.ercv, but hs dallied with the bail and lost it.
