Prestatyn v. Rhyl Church Guild. The above teams met at Prestatyn on Saturday, in a league fixture. Both teams were without several of their usual players, the Guild being the worst sufferers in this respect. The Guild won the toss, and J. Roberts kicked off for Prestatyn before a fair gate. The game at once went in the homesters' -j favour, but the forwards failed to take advan- tage of several splendid openings. After twenty minutes play, Watts (who was playing halt back) made a grand run, and finished with a fine centre, from which the bali was rushed inte tho not. The Guild now played up, and Glass was called upon several times. The home forwards were placed in grand scoring positions several times, but quite failed to make use of them. Half-time Prestatyn 1 goal, Guild nil. The second half opened very tamely, but the home team assisted by the wind and with the sun to their backs, had matters all their own way—except when it came to netting the ball. The visitors' defence was given plenty of work, which they' got through with great credit. The home forwards continued to throw away good chances of scoring, and it was not until Tom Brooks had run almost the whole length of the field, and sent in a splendid shot (which the visitors' custodian just managed to save) that the second goal was rushed through' n From now to the fiuish, it was a case of "shot in," but the home forwards quite failed to shoot with any effect, and the final score stood Prestatyn 2, lihyl Guild 0. The weakened Guild team played a plucky game, and a special word of praise is due to Mark Hughes (goal) and Collins (back) for 1 their fine defence. Of the Prestatyn players W. Glass was simply a spectator. Jack Jones and J. T. Williams gave a good display. as also did Watts, T. Brooks, and D. G. Jones, but Bell Jones was the only forward to do anything. Prestatyn now ouly require another point to become second, but if the forwards are going to give us any more displays such E69 against Denbigh and the Guild, we shall have a job to get that one point.
