FOOTBALL NOTES. [BY "ATHLETE."] On Saturday a match between the Unionists and Newpoit was much aided and hindered by the caprice of a high wind. ⦠# ⢠The points scored by Thursby and Sheldon were both, without flattery, the result of the nicest judgment, coupled with the greatest amount of animal force. Barry certainly deserved to win, and their score of two goals to one indicate a tough fight. Then opponents were not mean ones, and their play little inferior to that of the home team. < m Newport certainly deserved their goal, and throughout played in the most scientific and entlemanly manner. Rees was the star of the Usk team, and shot like a meteor. ⢠Jacky Thomas smartened up wonderfully before the close of the game, and was several times pitted against Rees, who happens to be a few feet taller, and a smart man to b iot. However, he came ou- of the encounter with credit to himself, and although only a reserve, like the reserves on their way to the front, he meat to win or die. 0 ⢠Talking of the Reserves, reminds me that three of the Newport team go out next week to the front. They are Rees, Stevenson, and Blick, who all belong to the 4th Mounted Mule Battery, now stationed at Newport. Good fortune go with them, and may they fight gloriously for England (and Waies), and may they yet take their share in many a well-fought field at home. ⦠Other local matches played on Saturday were the Barry Old Boys v. Cadoxton United, at the Palmerstown Field. In the first half Cad, ,xton were leading by one goal to nil, the goal being scored by M. ilowrie. During the latter half, however, W. Edmouds and J. Martin scored for the Old Boys. The wretched state of the ground interfered much with the game, and prevented Cadoxton from adding to their score. There was a great deal of ill-feeling between the players too, owing, I am told, to the intense jealously among the junior teams. The spirit of rivalry, especially in sport, is honourable, but jealously and ill-feeling make a man or boy contemptable in their own eyes. ⢠A slogging match was played between tho Cad- oxton United Seconds and the Barry Crescents, when the Turks were beaten by 13 goals to 3, not- withstanding the fact that the beaten team were much the heavier. The Rugby game was played at Dinas Powis on Saturday between the local team and Cowbridge. The homesters scored three goals three tries, against one try put in by Cowbridge. The two tries scored by D. Thomas and H. Beer were mag- nificent efforts, the former being scorcd from the 25 line, and the latter from the half-way. The Powis men w ho scored were Fred Davies, tw o tries W. Coombes, one try D. Thomas and H. Beer, two tries each. SOUTH WALES & MONMOUTHSHIRE LEAGUE (1ST & 2ND DIVISION.) DIVISION I.
