'Daws a visit. How strange The Cormorants were the last to pay the 'Daws a visit at the end of last season, and on this occasion they will open the present one. The club wild have bad two practice Saturdays before the 18th. Mr James Wallwork, who-, I am glad to learn, is improving in health, is the President, and the Rev. J. W. Roberts "(Vicar), Councillors Edward Jones and J. Fred Jones, and. Messrs J. W. Post, T. O. Morgan, Henry Lloyd, and Warren Wiilliamis, A.R.C.A., are the Vice-Presidents. Mr "Corny" Williams is the Chairman of the committee, and a Battling good one, too; whilst Capt. John Jones is the valued, Vice-Chairman. The following form the committee, which is a very good one: Messrs Robert Roberts, J. T. Jones, Rowland1 Lewis, J. E. Jones,, Tom Edwards, G. H. Williams, W. Parry, J. G. Gra- ham, and J. W. Hughes. The Treasurers are Messrs J. Wallwortk and Tom Edwards. The new Secretary is Mr J. W. Hughes, who takes keen interest in sport, and it may be said that the club have in him a man, that will not allow the Jackdaws' interests to. suffer from Wiant of attention. 'He is no novice at the game, but one of the old school. And where can one better it? Mr H. J. Wilson will act as Assistant Secretary. Here is another follower of the leather, who is boundless in enfthus:iasm." The club will retain their Royal blue jerseys and white knickers. The League representative is the genial Tom Edwards, who. has done yeo- man service for the Jackdaws, and never seems to grow weary in well-dbinig for Conway. The air at Henryd and Trecastell is very invigorat- ing. The cfliub's headquarters are at Uncle Lloyd's," and this its as things should be. Uncle," by the way, has been appointed a referee for the 18th, at Llanrwst; but as good odd Uncle," like many more, has not learnt the secret of perpetual youth, he will not fulfil a League referee's engagement. The prospects of the club, so far, are splendid, their financial position this year being better than previous seasonsâthanks to the Coast Amateur Cup ties. Nearly all the old members who made such a brave show in the cup above-mentioned,have agait signed, ana, more are 3, good number of recruits also available, when necessity arises. The team visits Holyhead on Saturday to play an opening friendlly game with the Sealarks. The captain and vice-captain., elected on Mon- day night, are Walter Barry and Llew Piariry. I wish the Black Dins" a bright season. BLAENAU FESTINIOG. I am glad1 to think that the Flamingos have got over their. troubles and are once more in the League circle. The quiarrymen have always duijing their League career shown a good sentse of spotrt and this frequently under adverse cir- cumat.ances. My correspondent says "The Fes- tiniog Town Club Committee, after having been compelled' at a general meeting to withdraw from the Cbast League and again re-entering, have entered into the season with confidence of making headway up the football ladder. The Ciarrumittee for the most part is composed of young, enthusiastic, and energetic gentTenien. The following compose the Committee; -Mr. John Rowlands (ChwirmaJn), Mr. John Jones (Vice-Chairman), Mr. T. Goodman, Jones (Hon. Treasurer), Mr. J. Evan Hughes (Hon. Secretary), Messrs. J. Parry Thomas, Rion&rd Morris, Owen Jones Elliis, Ivor Wynne Jones, W. Williams, W. H. Roberts, j. Jones Roberts, and G. Eivans Roberts. The captain is that well-known player, Jack Bach (John Jones), and the vice-captaincy is held by Mr. William Row land1 Otwen. The vontue of the encounters will once more be at Newborough Park. All the old players, I understand, have signed on for this .season, including Arthur Williams, one of the best hailif-backs in the League; also Haydii Lloyd, Dei Evans, Dick Evans, and some first- class men from outside Bliaenau, but within the radius, have aliso siignedi on. Mr. Lleweil(yn G. Owen, whoi was the austoidtian for Oxford City liaat year, has been prevailed upon to give his services, and T. L. Edwards, late outside right for Chester and' Buckley Engineers. There will be three veny well-known faces missing at the beginning of the season through temporary ab- sence from home. They are Jim Lloyd, Will MeilDon Jones, and Tom Hughes Bach. The club isaJllslO entered for the North Wales Ama- teur Senior anid Junior Cups. The seaso-n, pro- per was opened on Siaturdlay, when a charity match was played, the well-known Bala Press being the visitors. The Press were not at fulJl strength, which perhaps accounted for the die- feat they suffered to' the tune of four goals to nil, in 45 minutes' play only. It was hardly an ideal day for football, as the rain came down in torrents. Lllanrwlst open. the League season on Saturdlay at Blaenau, and Pwllheli visit Fes- tiniog on the following Siaturdayâtwo matches that are bound! to draw some coppers into the till. "There is no doubt," says my friend, "but that Festiniog is going to make a bid for the I League championship this year." Hear, heax! » CARNARVON. The Canaries had a rattling good season in. 1908-9. 'Many wonder whether they can repeat their successes. I think it is too, much to ex- pect that, in the face of the levelling up that there appears to be all round since last season. The Canaries are aiwayis a liappy lot, and it was good1 'management' and an excellent har- mony amongst. the players that caused- such suc- cess as they achieved. Of course, the ability was there, and on in-any an occasion good. luck as we'll. My correspondent says he fears I have given him a difficult task to give a glimpse of the Yellow Ones' prospects, for he sayis: "It will be impossible to. give any definite idea of their prospects in the Coast League until the Freshers match has been played, which will probably be on October 6th. Most of last year's men are available, and they have all had ex- perience in League: football, and have acquitted themselves creditably. The Canary management is also relying on newcomers, chiefly to fill up the vacant places. These newcomers, will be mostliy drafted f.rom. CIounty Schools, and some of our present-day County School clubs play- really .scientific football. Says my correspond*- ent "il won't venture any opinion, at present, other than that we hope to occupy a respectable position at the enldi of the sea-son." Bravo ior youir modesty! BEAUMARIS. The champior,, Puffins have been, nicely photo- graphed with their Committee and! the Coast League Cup. The photo iis a work of art. The boys look well, and the managers are likewise.
