Prestatyn v. Abergele.


Prestatyn v. Abergele. The return game between these great rivals was played at Abergele on Saturday in boisterous weather, and before a large crowd. R. Jones failed to turn out, and at the last moment Prestatyn had to call upon the services of Jim Jones. Mr Miers, of Cplwvn Bay, was late in putting in an appearance, and it was some twenty minutes late when Prestatyn faced their opponents in the follow- ing order: Goal, W. Glass; backs, Jack Jones and J. T. Williams halves, D. G. Jones, Bell Jones, and T. Brooks forwards, R. Hughes, E. Holbrook, G. Glass, Jim Jones, and L. Watts. J. T. Williams won the toss, and took advantage of the strong wind. The game opened very fast and even, and it was soon evident that the visitors were in for a rough game. The visitors pressed, and after seven minutes' play R. Hughes completely beat the home custodian with a fast low shot. Aided by the strong wind, the visitors continued to have all the best of matters, but their for- wards were very weak in front of goal. Hereabouts D. G. Jones was badly fouled, and the game had to be stopped, W. Jones (Will Tai) being cautioned by the referee. The Prestatyn forwards continued to dally about in front of goal, and several opportu- nities were allowed to slip. Towards the interval, Abergele attacked and W. Jones fouled J. T. Williams badly, but the referee took no notice and Moss Jones got clean away, sending in a lovely centre, which Glass was making to fist away when he was simply rushed into the net, and the bail dropped into the corner of the goal. Half-time Abergele 1 goal, Prestatyn 1. An adequate description of the second half is out of the question, several of the Abergele players having to be cautioned. Prestatyn defended splendidly, and kept the Abergele- ities out, whilst the forwards worked several openings, but failed to take advantage of them. Final result: Abergele 1, Prestatyn 1. Had there been a more strict referee in command, it is probable that. not only would several Abergele players have been turned off, but their ground would have run the risk of being closed. E. Mostyn and E. Williams were the pick of the homesters, and the less said abnnt the others the better. For Prestatyn Glass kept a capital goal. Jack Jones and Joe Williams played well throughout the game, the halves also being in great form. Of the forwards R. Hughes and Holbrook were the pick, although Jim Joues played a plucky game and passed well. Watts was badly kicked early in the game, and was afterwards off colour. G. Glass worked some fine openings, but nulified them by keeping the ball too long. Had Abergele played the game, Prestatyn would, no doubt, have repeated their previous win.
