The Rhyl Cup Competition: Local "Thursdays" lift the Cup. Prestatyn was doubly represented in the Easter Monday Competition at Rhyl, the Saturdays doing duty in the the Junior whilst the Thursdays were our representatives in the Minor contest. The Saturdays were muck weakened, several of their leading players gettmg as far as the touch line and theC refusing to play. After gaining a grand victory over the Clifton (Manchester) teaJ11 they were beaten by lihyl Victoria. The hopes of Prestatynites now laid witb the Thursdays, and right valliantly did this team play. After defeating Gloddaeth Rovef" (Llandudno) by 3 corners to 1, they gained splendid victory over Orrell Reserves (Liver- pool) by 1 goal to 2 corners. In the final a chance was given the Thursdays not only to win the cup, but alsO to avenge the defeat of the senior team, fOr they were called upon to play Rhyl Victoria Reserves. On time being ealled in this matck each side had scored once. In the extra time the Thursdays rose to the occasion and simply walked away" with the cup, by 2 goals to 1. This was one of the most exciting matoheS I of the day. and the victors, who were acconr panied by a large number of supporters, were 0 carried off the ground shoulder high. Well done; Thursdays This is thl t first cup and medals. The writer trusts it i; will not be their last, and hopes that nett f.. year the "double event" will be brought off.
