FORESTERS 1) LLANGOLLEN. This match was played on Saturday last, on the ground jof the former, in Gwersyllt Park. The visitors won the toss, and chose to kick down hill. The ball was put in motion by the captain of the Foresters at 2.45 p.m., and some very spirited play was shown on both sides. In 15 minutes the visitors had the first corner kick, which came to bothing, as did one for the Foresters a few minutes later on. Just before half-time the Llangollen goal was in imminent danger, a good kick by E. Williams and another by C. Roberts being stopped by the goal- keeper very cleverly. At half-time neither sides had scored. Changing ends, the home team played better together, and after a splendid run down the ball was kicked through the visitors' goal by McHutchon, time, 3.40; this seemed to put new life into the Llangollen men, and they struggled hard to equalise affairs. A kick for goal being stopped by one of the home backs with his hand gave the visitors a free kick close to goal, this was entrusted to E. Jones, who made a straight shot for goal, and the ball catching one of the home players passed between the posts, time, 4.0 p.m. There was but 15 minutes left to decide the game, and very fast play was shown by the Foresters, who soon obtained a corner kick, which was entrusted to S. Powell, and was again played over the line by the visitors, another corner resulted in goal No. 2 for the Foresters, neatly put through by E. Wil- liams. Time was called shortly after, the Foresters winning their second tie by two goals to one. On the whole the Llangollen team played well together, and for the Foresters Marston, Tudor, and E. Wil- liams) played a capital game. The following were the players :-Forestert,g. Lovatt (goal), White-, house and R. Williams (backs), T. H.
