WELSH JUNIOR CUP. SECOND ROUND. WHITTINGTON v OSWESTRY RESERVE. The match between these teams at Oswestry having ended in a draw, the tie was replayed at Whittington on Saturday. Mr Postle, Ruabon, had charge of the teams, which were composed as follows :â WHITTINGTON. Goal, Grindley; backs, Peel and E lwards; half- backs, J Davies, Phillips, and J Richards forwards, J Youens, Wilkinson, H Youens, Pugh, and C Peel. OSWESTRY RESERVE. Goal, Powell; backs, Emery and Bowyer; half- backs, T Hampson, W Morris and R Morris; for- wards, J Pugh, Hammond, C Griffiths, D Davies, and J Mack. The home team were not at full strength, but the visitors were fully represented. The opening ex- changes favoured Oswestry though they were placed at a disadvantage in having to face the sun. F Peel, Edwards, and Phillips were prominent in the defensive work and H Youens was enabled to get away. R Morris however intercepted the pass to the right. Then Oswestry got away and Grind- ley bad to run out to a shot by D Davies, Mack in the next minute shooting against the side net. After this pressure by tfoe visitors, Whittington broke away. H Youens giving to C Peel who j missed the ball and lost a Igood chance. R Morris sent the ball forward and F Peel missing his kick let Griffiths through and he made no mistake in landing the ball into the net. A bit of sharp work by J Davies took play towards the visitors' goal. Wilkinson put in a nice shot and Powell conceded a corner which proved abortive. Whittington were next aided by a free-kick, but Emery relieved and Hampson shot in. Phillips, however, secured, and H Youens looked like scoring, but Bowyer charged him off, and Powell was enabled to save the position. The ball travelled to the other end, and Mack placed wide. The home vanguard again got going, and T Pugh placed over the bar. Even play followed, but H Youens got away and equalised amid applause. After this success Whit- tington forced the pace and found the visiting defence was sound. A free-kink fell to Oswestry, and this was well placed by R Morris. Mack headed the ball on and Grindley caught it, but let it drop into goal. Soon after the home goal had a narrow escape. Griffiths got through and struck the under part of the crossbar with a swift shot, the ball rebounding into play, but Mack forced a corner which was not improved upon. At half-time Oswes- try led by two goals to one. On resuming Whit. tington tried hard to get level, and the visitors had to fall back on their goal, but Phillips shot wide. Oswestry afterwards attacked, but could not beat Peel and Edwards. The visitors, however, resumed the aggressive, and following a nice run, Mack centred, and Hammond scored a third. In the next minute Mack placed a trifle wide from a diffi. cult position. A couple of runs were made by Whittington, but the visiting defence were equal to the calls, and Oswestry got away and forced a fruit- less corner. Play was of an even character and some- what tame for a while, but Whittington caused some excitement by getting dangerously near goal, Emery clearing. Richards, however, returned the ball well into goal and Emery was again called upon. J Pugh then changed the, enue, only to be beaten by Edwards. Aided by a freekick Oswestry pressed and J Davies made a timely clearance. Whittington then rushed through and Powell fell to a shot. He, however, retained possession of the ball and a scramble followed, the result being a prostrated collection of writhing humanity. The whistle went for a foul and the referee threw the ball up near the upright. Danger having been removed temporarily, Whittington attacked again, and aided by a few freekicks they forced the visitors to defend. Bowyer and Emery were equal to the task and the ball was again at the Whittington goal, Mack running the ball over the line. Result: Oswestry Reserve 3 goals, Whittington 1.
