Prestatyn bad choice of ground, but for a consideration it was agreed to play at Portmadoc. There was a very good crowd of spectators when the teams lined up as follows, under the control of Mr. E. Lloyd Williams, Bangor Prestatyn — Goal, J. Linnell; backs, J. Jones, and T. W. Ellis; halves, J. Whitelock, H. Davies, and J. W. Ellis; forwards, R. Hughes, D. W. Jones, Tellis Hughes, G. Glass, and G. Thomas. Portmadoc—Goal, W. Pike backs, R. Jones and W. Evans; halves, G. Davies, J. R. Jones, and R. Jones forwards, R. D. Roberts, M. Jones, 0. Jones, H. Jones, and W. Va ii ghan. It will be noticed that the visitors were without Mostyn, whose placa was taken by G. Thomas. Tellis Hughes won th toss for Prestatyn, and chose to play with the sun to their backs, 0. Jones kicking off for Portmadoc with the wind in their favour. The game opened in favour of the homest is, who, after midfield play, bore down on the Prestatyn goal, and O. Jones tried a long shot which was travelling well outside when the leather was carght by the breeze and turned into the corner of the net, greatly to the suprise of Linnell, who made no attempt to save. After this stroke of luck the Port. men played with great vigour, and simply bombarded the visitors' goal, the Prestatyn players seeming very slow (stiff, no doubt after their long journey). After 10 minutes' play R. D. Roberts broke right through and with only Linnell to beat scored with a grand drive. The visitors now woke up considerably, and Pike was called upon to save his charge. Keeping up the pressure Prestatyn had a grand chance of wiping off the leeway, but G. Glass, with an open goal, missed a splendid opening, and the chance was lost. The homesters again returned to the attack, and 0. Jones got well through, when he over- kicked the ball, and in the race to reach it Linnell got there first, but he unfortunately kicked the ball hard against Jones' face, from where it bounded into the net. After this the visitors played much better football, and but for the feebleness of their inside forwards they should have scored a couple of goals be- n fore the interval. Half-time result, Port- madoc 3 goals, Prestatyn 0. The whole of the second half was a repeti- tion of the latter half of the first, Prestatyn simply penning Portmadoc in their own goal, but try as they would they could not score, Glass, Tellis, and D. W. Jones missing com- paratively easy chances. To show how the game went it might be mentioned that it was not until five minutes off time that Linnell got a kick. This was followed by a free kick for Portmadoc close in, which Linnell saved, this being the only shot which he was called upon to deal with during the last half. Final result, Portmadoc 3 goals, Prestatyn 0. Prestatyn were very unlucky to lose, but it was entirely their own fault, for the chances they had of scoring were too numerous to mention. Of course they had to put up with a great deal of hard luck, whilst the first and third goals scored by the homesters were brought about more by good luck than good management. To my mind a draw would hardly have been more than the homesters deserved. For Prestatyn the halves played well, as also did the outside men Thomas and Hughes, but Linnell in goal and Ellis and Jones at back were far below their proper form, whilst the attempts made by the three inside forwards were simply miserable when they got near goal. Next Saturday Prestatyn are without a match, but the following Saturday they will be called upon to meet Holywell at Holywell, and will not have another open date till the end of April. HEARD ON THE GROUND. That the Port supporters said that Pres- tate n had given them the hardest game this season. That Moseley Jones was not allowed to take any liberties with the Prestatyn defence. That G. Thomas gave a good display at out-side left for Prestatyn. Printed and Published by J. T. BURROWS, High-st.,Prestatyn, in the County of Flint. 0
