Prestatyn. v. Llandudno.


Prestatyn. v. Llandudno. After an absence from their own ground for over three months, Prestatyn entertained Llandudno on the Marine Ground on Saturday in fine but dull weather. Owing to a misunderstanding no referee turned up, but the teams agreed to Mr Jno. Evans, of Prestatyn, acting in that capacity. It was quite 30 minutes after the advertised time of kick-off when Prestatyn facud their opponents in the following order: Goal, W. Glass backs. J. T. Williams and Jack Jones; halves, D. Junes, P. Jones, and S. Jones; forwards, J. Parry, W. Williams E. Holbrook, BcJIJ Jones, and I J. Watts. It will be noticed that the homesters were without It. Hughes, G. Glass, and T. Brooks, whilst two new men in D. Jones and W. William* were given a trial. Llandudno kicked off before a very poor gate, and the homesters at once attacked, but Llandudno defended in splendid style. Watts was in great form on the extreme left, getting through repeatedly. The Bines continued to have the best of matters, and after 25 minutes' .play Holbrook scored. Watts now got clean through, finishing with a grand shot which the Llandudno custodian saved in brilliant style, and a few minutes from the interval the same player again called upon the custodian to save. Hall-time Prestat) n 1 goal, Llandudno 0. The second half opened in sensational style, Watts getting away from the kick off and ended with a brilliant centre which W. Williams safely placed in the net. Prestatyn now fell off -a great deal and Llandudno attacked with vigour. Glass saving several well directed shots in grand style. The visitors continued to have the best of matters for some time, but at last, Prestatyn got away. and in saving at close quarters the Llandudno keeper was hurt, but was soon able to resume. The Blues were now playing a much better game, and Watts added a third gtlal. But the Llandudno players, not with the referee's decision, started to leave the held. The referee, however, re-considered his decision and gave a goal kick, the game being then resumed. Towards the close the Hods played up in surprising style, and with 10 minutes to play Glass was beaten. After this reverse the homesters fell a way again, 1 11 and only some good defensive work by Glass and iiis backs stopped Llandudno from drawing level. Final result Prestatyn 2, Llandudno 1. That Prestatyn deserved their success no one will deny, but LUuiludno played in pi icky style in the closing stages, and came very near taking a point away with them. Glass g I I played a nice game in goal, whilst J. T. Williams was the best of two hard working backs. The halves played wel except during the closing stages, D. Jones making a very creditable debut. Amongst the forwards Watts shone above all. It is wonderful how this player has improved, and on present form he is one of the best outside lefts on the coast. Is he looking out for a cap in the East v. West trial match? W. Williams (the other recruit) also gave a creditable display, as did J. Parry, but Hoibrook kept the bail far too much. If he is to keep his place in the team he will have to part with the ball quicker. Llan- dudno gave a good account of themselves, their goalkeeper being worthy of special notice for his really brilliant display. SCRAPS OVERHEARD. That in the team first selected the name of Pryce Jones was not to be found. Why not ? He is a fine player and has stuck to his team through thick and thin. New players are all very well, but a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush. That Mr John Evans, who kindly acted as Referee, is an old hand at football, he being on the committee of the Rhyl F.C. in their early days. He should be of great help on the Prestatyn Club Committee. That in the re-play for the Junior Cup (Greenfield v. Conway), the Prestatyn ground has been mentioned. Why not ? That John Love Jones, who last year assisted Prestatyn, has gained his first International Cap, being chosen to act as pivot to the Welsh team v. Scotland. Lovey is at present playing a splendid game as centre for Stoke. Printed and Published by J. T. BUKLiOWS, High-st.,Prestatyn, in the County of Flint..
