FOOTBALL NOTES. Prestatyn v. Denbigh. The above Thursday teams met at the Marine Road Ground, Prestatyn, on Thursday last in fine weather. In the Denbigh eleven were included two members of the town team, while J. Roberts, Franks, L. Lloyd, and J. W. Jones were missing from the ranks of the home eleven. Captain Watts having won the toss put Denbigh to face the sun, but they had a slight wind at their backs. The game started in rather a lively way, as Buckley, robbing the Denbigh forwards, gave to Holbrook, who, dashing down his wing, put in a lovely centre which the home centre met and beat the visiting custodian with a splendid shot, opening the homesters' score within two minutes of the start. From the centre Denbigh got down on the left, but were driven back by Brooks, who cleared with a huge kick. P. Hughes now got possession, and the spectators were treated to some pretty passing between Davies, Hughes, and Roberts, which ended in Hughes again testing the Denbigh custodian who cleared cleverly. The Denbigh right now got away, but were repulsed by Jones, who passed forward to Davies, that player tricking three of his opponents and passing across the goalmouth, Roberts got possession and passed to Hughes, who put the homesters further ahead with a lucky goal. On half time being called the home team were two up. On restarting the ball was given to the home centre half, who gave out to Roberts on the right, he centring for Davies to put on num- ber three goal. Denbigh now seemed to waken up and brought pressure to bear on the home goal, but found a hard nut to crack in Roberts, Watts, and Brookes. Later the home forwards made another onslaught on the visitors' goal, but the Denbigh custodian saved splendidly from Holbrooke, after which Herbie had to save a stinging shot from one of the Denbighites. Just before time was called Roberts sent in a shot which skimmed the bar, the game concluding with the home- sters winners of their first match by three goals to nil. Referring to the home players, Herbie kept a good goal and showed improvement on last year's form. The backs were very safe, and the halfs worked hard, with Jones perhaps the best, but Thomas improved in the second half. The forwards played well to a man, and with a gcod partner for Roberts they will want some holding. The following represented Prestatyn H. Roberts, L. W. Watts, T. E. Brooks, A. Jones, E. Buckley, W. Thomas, Holbrook, W. R. Davies, P. Hughes, Barlow, and J. Roberts. GOAL POST.
