Colwyn Bay v. Prestatyn.


Colwyn Bay v. Prestatyn. Welsh Amateur Cup, 2nd Round. The above match should have taken place at Prestatyn, bat a monetary offer by the Colwyn Bay Club was accepted by the Pres- tatyn Club and the game played at Colwyn Bay. Prestatyn were several men short, Mostyn, Jack Jones, Jos Parry, and W. Bell Jones failing to put in an appearance, and it was a very disorganized team that turned out 15 minutes late. W. R. Jones, J. P. Linnell, J. Roberts, and E. Newton filled the vacancies, whilst the Bay, remembering their previous defeat at Colwyn at the hands of the blues turned out full strength. Mr Russell, Chester, had charge of the whistle, and the Prestatyn team lined up as follows goal W. Glass backs J. T. Williams and Pryce Jones; halves T. Brooks, G. Glass, and J. Roberts; forwards R. Hughes, E. Newton, W. R. Jones, J. P. Liuneil, E. Holbrook. R. Hughes won the toss for Prestatyn, and McCann kicked off for the Bay against both slope and wind, before a good gate. Pres- tatyn were the first to make a move, R Hughes getting well down, but his centre came to nothing. Still keeping up the attack G. Glass just missed scoring. The visitors were now having all the best of matters, but at last Colwyn broke away on the right and from a centre by Owen, McCann scored a simple goal. The visitors broke away on the left but were driven back, and McCann raced up the field and sent in a shot which Glass stopped, but he allowed the ball to slip out of his fingers and roll into the net. But the Pres- tatynites were in no way disheartened at their ill-luck and now attacked with vigour, R. Hughes having the hardest of lines in not scoring. Colwyn Bay again attacked and I y 11 1 Pryce Jones handled the ball, a penalty being granted, but this proved of no avail, and the blues again attacked. The interval arrived with the score Colwyn Bay 2, Prestatyn O. On resuming Colwyn Bay at once attacked but without success. W. R. Junes infringed the handling rules and penalty No 2 was awarded, which was safely put in the net. The visitors again had a look in and played with vigour, the home custodian saving some well aimed shots. End to end play was now the order, but from one of these rushes McCann scored with a grand cross shot. From now to the finish the game went in favour of the Bay, but the visitors defended well. Final score: Colwyn Bay 4 Prestatyn 0. Considering the poor team they had on the held and the strength of. their opponents Prestatyn did very well indeed, for the Bay were very lucky in getting the two goals in the first half, whilst one of the others was from a penalty. Still they thoroughly deserved to win, and I am sure the Blues do not begrudge them the right to play in round 8. They will now have to journey to Llandudno. Glass was not up to his usual form, but Pryce Jones and J. T. Williams gave a good display. -I- In the half back line Tom Brooks played a rattling game under difficulties, whilst W. R. Jones (who, by the way. is a brother to Lovey Jones of Stoko) also played a good game. Glass (who came forward in place of W. R. Jones) Holbrook, a.nd R. Hughes, were the pick of the forwards. With Jack Jones (who I should like to see in the centre), W. Bell Jones, and Mostyn back, the Blues will still be a team to be reckoned with, and they stand a chance second to none of winning the North Wales Junior Cup this year. SCRAPS. There is very little to chose amongst the teams in the Junior League. The name of the Prestatyn Football Club figured in the Stoke Football Pro- gramme last Saturday. What about this as an advert, for the town ? The name of J. P. Linnell has now been added to the list of official Referees, the local Secretary having been successful at the recent examinaLion. Two more ex-Prestatyn players turned out for Rhyl Combination team on Saturday in the persons of W. A. Stone and W. Jones (Will Tai). All teams should note that entrance to the Cup and Medal Competition closes at the end of the week. Printed and Published by J. T. BURROWS 0 High-st.,Prestatyn, in the County of Flint.
