FOOTBALL NOTES AND GOSSIP. [By OLD FOOTBALLER-1 Bangor 4 goali Cre-re Alexandra 2 goals. This match was contested on the ground of I tho Oity Oiub on Saturday afternoon, in t presence of a fair number of spectators. The I kick off was to have taken place at 2.30, but the visiting team did not put in an appearance until close upon 3 o'clock. The Crewettes won the toss, and played with the wind, which was very high during the first half of the game but before the second half it had calmed consider- ably. The visiting team had the best of the game for some time, but Jack "Bach" broke through and scored for Bangor. The play continued to be brisk, and the homites were kept busily at work. On several occasions the homesters' goal appeared rather dangerous, and had it not been for Alec's noble defence, BinLor would have certainly been several points to the bad. The Creweites were not long in Aiding out that Alec was the backbone of the homesters, and Morris from the right tried strenuously when a rush was made to tip him over but Alec was like a rock, and if anyone felt any the worse ater the scrimmages that took place between them, I bet it was Morris. Poor fellow he teemed quite done up after the last scrimmage which took place between him and the famour custodian. A penalty kick tell to the lot of the Creweites, and great excitement prevailed, but Alec saved grandly, and sent the leather well down the field. I should like to see the home forwards practisinm a little more combination. Again, I should also I ke to see the forwards keeping cool when shooting for goal. Some of the forwards shot most erratic- ally when there was an easy chance of scoring. Stewart played exceedingly well on the left, and I think that the position suits him grandly. The full backs seemed a bit funky, but fair play to them, they were only the Reserves' backs. Perhaps on the next occasion when they play with the first team, they will not be so slow, and be not afraid to rush on the men. Davy is still as tricky as ever. He actually had one or two of the visiting teams' forwards at his mercy. James Gray, at centre, was somewhat selfish, and the leather was taken on two or three occasions from him when some of the forwards had an easy chance of scoring. Willmann, Goronwy, Farmers, G. R. Thomas, and Buckland were conspicuous by their absence. Where, oh where, had they gone ? The Reserves played the Bethesda team on Wednesday afternoon. This was an extremely "rotten" match. It was merely shooting for goal. The result was Bangor Reserves, 8 goals Bethesda nil. [By CMTIC.] Bangor are indeed doing well; they have not, since the early part of December, met with a defeat. Last Saturday they again vanquished the Crawe men by four goals to two, which speaks volumes for the gay city. I hope to see them victorious over the chemical lads who are due here to-day (Saturday). Play up, Bangor, and show the football world what yon are worth, as the Flint team is now a strong club. Carnarvon, last Saturday, journeyed to Rhyl tO play the return fixture, and had to go down to the tune of five goals to one. There was a large crowd, it being a benefit match to R. Rosney, the popular forward of the Rhyl Club, who was injured on last^Bank Holiday when playing against Mold. The game was very interesting, and at the call of half time Rhyl were leading by 2 goals to nil. In the second portion of the game the home team had matters much their own way, who ran out winners by five goals to Carnarvon's one, Mr Whitley, I hear, acted as referee, and gave satis- faction to both teams. Colwyn Bay had St. Asaph as visitors. A very late start was made, Colwyn Bay winning by three goals to one. To-day (Saturday) the Bay- ites have Rilyl to play against, and mean to reverse their defeat at Rhyl some few weeks ago. A meeting 'of the committee appointed to govern the Welsh Junior Cap competition was held last Tuesday at Wrexham. A pro- teat was lodged by Conuah's Quay against the result of their tie with Flint Swifts, the ground of complaint being that the referee was not the one appointed by the Association, and they also objected to going to Flint on account ot the spectatore. It was decided that the match should be replayed at Flint on February 1st, Mr J, Taylor to be referee, the president and two other members of the committee to be present. The following are the ties in the third round.-Holywell Reserve v. Fiint Swifts,orCannah's Quay Adwy United v. Wrexham Gymnasiutp, Druids Reserve v. Rhos- tylleo Reserve, Wrockwardine Wood v. Shrews- bury Reserve. Llandudno Swifts last Saturday had an open date, but will to-day (.Saturday) journey to Connah's Quay to play the club of that town, next Saturday, 11th inst. The proud Salopians" will play the Swifts in the fourth round of the Welsh Cup on the recreation ground. They have a grand record, being champions of the Shropshire and District League, and if the Swifts mean to go into the semi-final they will have to go in for strict train- ing.
