The CestriaDs won the tOBII, and naturally elected to play with the wind at their backs. It was noticed that the Vies had adopted the wise plan of pi,tying four half-backs and four forwards in this I half. E, Jone? being ou the right wing by himself ?n i HiiliugtOD ftHiD? half back.

The home forwards were, hGwev6r, driTen back, bnt were soon thronging I roumi the Vica' goal again, and Mathias in making a â¢apiul save was psnalised for carrying the ball. The fret kick availed the home team nothing, as Mathias via- applauded for a magnificent sare. The visiting left made a great efort to get away, but the" ind greatly aisisied the homesters, and the ball was returned down the field, the visiting defence being again tesied for some time, but the railway men could not get through. Five minutes before half time W. Davies, for the Vies, passed the ball out to E. Jones, who tricked the back, and made a dash for the Chester goal, causing the goalkeeper (who had come down the field to help hits aide to score) to beat a hao! retreat.
