DENBIGHSHIRE AND FLINTSHIRE CHARITY CUP. LLANGOLLEN UNITED v. EIIOUGHTON UNITED.â This match was played at the Tower field, LItn. gollen, on Saturday, before a fair gate. The Brough- ton captain having won the toss, Llangollen kicked off with the slope in their favour. Straight awav the Broughton defence w&a called upon, and proved equal to the occasion. Llangollen were very per- sistent, and at last were rewarded, the ball going into the net off Jones, the visitors' left half. After this reverse the Reds" settled down, and were soon in the vicinity of the Llangollen goal, where the ball was put through, out the goal was disallowed for impeding the goalkeeper. Hereabouts the visitors were granted a penalty kick, which Sanderson sent wildly over the bar. However, notwithstanding these hard lines,' Broughton continued to have the beat of the game, and at length were rewarded by Tattum heading neatly into the net. Soon afterwards the whistle blew for half-time with the score one all. The second half opened fast, Broughton forcing the pace, and scoring from a scrimmage in about five minutes after the re-start. Even play was the order for a while, and then Astbnry shot a grand goal, only to find his effort nullified by off-side. Again, from a centre by the same player, Sanderson and Williams missed when right under the bar. The Broughton forwards showed a great tendency to go for the man instead of the ball, and the sooner they drop this practice the more goals they will get. The centre forward is an especial sinner in this way. However, after a fotile run or two to the Reds quarters, play settled down in the LIa.ngoUen half, Si Moss adding the third goal with a grand shot from about 25 yards range. Play continued in favour of Broughton to tbp. end of the game, the final score being-Broughton 3, Llangollen 1. All the winners I shaped well, and are a very likely looking team. Among the forwards the brothers Williams shone, hut all played well. The halves played a great game I in both defence and attack. Of the backs, Moss wis the more prominent on account of his good heading, his partner failing in this most important respect. Williams, in goal, was all that could be desired. Mr G. Owen, of Chirk, had charge of the following teams :âLlangollen: Goal, Swan; right back, A. Ellis; left back, Johns right half, Williams; centre half, G. Griffiths; left half, Ellis; outside right, W. Thomas; inside right, Edwards; centre forward, H. Thomas; inside left. T. Thomas; outside left, Owen. Broughton: Goal, J. A. Williams; right back, E. Roberts left hack, T. Moss right half, T. Davies; centre half, E. Moss; left half, W. Jonea outside right, T. Astbnry inside right, R. Williams centre forward, G. T%(tam; inside left, H. Sanderson; outside left, H. Williams.
