WELSH AMATEUR CUP. THE REPLAY AT LLANDUDNO THE "SEALARKS" VANQUISHED. (By "Linesman"). I Llandudno 2 Holyhead 0 hese teams met again at Llandudno to-day week to replay tho. tie. Although the Welsh Association only sent the teams notice on Wednesday evening the "'Harbouri.nen" were able to make the journey with a fairly strong team, and the Amateurs also had a full eleven, in the field. Notwithstanding the fact that the game was played on a week-day there was a good "gate" present when the teams lined up. Holyhead won the toss, and decided to kick towards the sea goal. The teams turned out as follows:â L'andudno: Bob Lunt; J. IT. Jones and Harold Pearson; Will Edwards, Georgia Davies and Will Owen; W. D. Williams, Jack Brown, Brookes-Evans, Frank Roberts, and Jimmy Wil-. Iiams. Holyhead: Collier; Owen Morgan and Row- land Williams; J. Rowlands, W. T. Jones and Dick Ellis; Salisbury Owen, R. C; Jones, 0. B. Edwards, J. Wallace Jones and Hughie Brown. Referee: Mr E. Lloyd Williams, Bangor. Brookes-Evans set the ball in motion, and the homesters at once made tracks for goal, but Owen Morgan relieved with a nice clearance. The "Sealarks" then assumed the offensive, but faulty combination amongst the forwards enabled Georgie Davies, the home centre-half, to step in and remove the leather to a less dangerous quar- ter. This led to a likely movement by the home forwards, and Brookes-Evans, who found himself on the right, centred neatly, but the whistle sounded for offside. Again the Amateurs got in motion, and this time little Jimmy Williams, on the left, raced round Oven Morgan, and put in a shot which everyone thought was in the net, but which passed outside. In the early stages of the game J. H. Jones, the homo right full, was continually kicking into touch. Once Jnck Brown got through, and put in a fine grounder, but Collier saved with his foot at the expense of a corner, which was afterwards cleared. Throughout the first half the play was even, and there was nothing to choose between the two teams. Salisbury Owen put in a capital shot from the extreme right, which Bob Lunt just caught by the. post, and a minute later R. C. Jones gave Lunt 9. warm handful. A f;,ee kick awarded the Amateurs for a foul looked dangerous, but J. H. Jones, taking the kick, placed it high over the bar. Again the home- sters camo, and little Davy Williams turned in a nice shot, but Collier saved in fine style. The game had not been cxactly rough u,) to the pre- sent. but there were omo nasty bite of work. First. Jack Brown was laid out, but was able to resume, and a little- later Hughie Brown to leave the field for a short period as a rerdt of an injury. The "Sealarks" took up the running, and Salisbury Owen raced down the wing and forced a corner off Pearson. This was, however, cleared by J. II. Jones. The bnlli was soon at the other goal again, and here Owen Morgan conceded a corner, as a result of which W. D. Williams tested Collier with a fine ground shot, but the custodian brought off a grand save. The Amateurs again attacked- and Jimmy \V Il/iama hit fho post with a well-judged shot from the left, after he had rounded Morgan. HOLYHEAD DESERVE A GOAL. Back again to the Llandadno goal, and this time the "home defenders were decidedly lucky to keep the leather out, for the visiting for- wards worked well, and doeerved a goal. Following this the homesters pressed, but could not get through. The visiting forwards got possession once more, and I must say that th-eir footwork was a treat to watch, and their combination di-iring this movement was worthy of their reputation. The work, however, was nullified by a free kick being awarded against R. C. Jones. The Amateurs forced a corner, but it proved fruitless. Shortfy after Collier caught a fine shot from W. D. Williams. The interval arrived wil-h neither team having scored. Half-time: Llandudno 0, Holyhead 0. The game in the first half had been fast, and the pace had begun to tell on the players. The Harbotixmen had enjoyed quite as much of the game as the home team, and the second moiety promised to prove an exciting tussle. Restarting, play was opened by Holyhead, but J. H. Jones relieved- The Amateurs at once glot to work, and. througnout the second half, they had the visitors well in hand. The visiting defence were continually in difficulties, and it was only the fine performance of Collier â I between the posts averted disaster. Howevei, it was evident that this state of affairs could not I go on much longer. Try as the Holyhead for- wards would, they could net get going, and although O. B. Edwards worked hard and fed his wings well, it was all in vain; there waa something palpably wrong with tihe forward .me, and to find that "something" is what the Holy- head executive have to do. 0. J3. Edwards at length got a chanoe, and receiving the ball from the right, raced between the two home backs in grand style- There is no doubt that if "0. B." had got through he would have found the net, but one of the defenders seeing the danger de- liberately tripped him from befnnd, and the cen- tre came to earth. W. T. Jones took the free kick, but Lunt saved finely. LLANDUDNO OPEN. The play swayed back to the Holyhead goal once more, and the home outside left, Jimmy Williams, raoed down the wing, and sent in a beautiful centre. Brookes Evans received, and directed it to the ocrner of the net, but Col- lier flung himself on the turf, and sent the lea- ther out again, but little Dei Williams rushing up crashed it into the net amid cheers. This put niore life into the game, and we saw holy- head in their true form. But it was only a "flash in the pan," and before long the Ama- teurs were again down at the Harbour goal. Jimmy Williams agairi got awav on the wing, and sent in a lovely shot; Collier fisted up into the air, and Dei Williams cooly waiting by, scored hie second goal by heading the leather into the net. After this the game was fairly settled. The Holyhead spectators were fondly hoping for a repetition of their performance against Green- field, but it was not forthcoming, and it was evident that the paJm of victory rested with the Amateurs. Just as the whistle sounded for fame Collier caught a grand low shot from .Brookes Evans just on the goal line. Llandudno were decidedly the better team, but Holyhead were not the Holyhead they have been, and there is something Jacking in the team, defence and forwards, which will have to be set- right if thoy mean to wan. Final result: Llandudno Amateurs 2, Holyhead 0.
