The teams selected for the match included several prominent well-known Welsh exponents of the game, and were as follows :— Whites Goal, J. Morris, Chirk backs, T. Knight (Llandudno) and Smart Arridge (Banger and New Brighton) halves, Sam Meredith (Chirk), Bllek- land (Bangor) and W. Harrison (Wrexham); forwards, W.

Stripes Goal, Fred Griffiths (Blackpool) backs, J. S. Mathias (Brymbo and Wolverhampton Wanderers) and Blew (Wrexham) halves, George Richards (Druids and Gravesend), J. Price (Druids) and M. Morris (Chirk) forwards. D. H. Pugh (Wrexham and Lincoln), W. M. Watkins (Oswestry) W. Jackson (Flint and Newton Heath), A. E. Watkins (Caersws and Aston Villa), centre, Jim Davies (Druids). Owing to a cup-tie Trevor Owen and Matthias of the Wolves" were absentees but their places were filled by D. Davies and Pcvah (Wrexham) respectively. In the first portion of the game both teams exerted themselves to the utmost, but the Whites gaining the upper hand compelled Griffiths, the opposing custodian to submit on two occasions. The second moiety of the game saw the Stripes at a disadvantage they having fallen "off colour" considerably. Watkins (Aston Villa), however, registered their only goal. The Whites seored thrioe from the interval, and a good game ended in a victory for the Whites by five goals to one. For the winners Parry, Oswestry, scored (2), W. Meredith (1), R. Davies (1) and Griffiths, Wrexham (1). W. Meredith, who is a native of Chirk, met with a hearty reception for his admirable play which has earned for him in England an almost premier position at outside right. THE SCOTLAND v. WALES MATCH.

Druids.—At Bangor, in dull weather. The opening exchanges favoured the home team, and after repeated attempts to score Walter Lewis registered the first point for Bangor, two minntes from the start. The Druids retaliated, the left wing reaching the Bangor defence, but the visiting forwards were very erratic in their final efforts. The home team then pressed, J. Arridge nearly scoring from long range. Continuing the pressure, the home forwards had hard lines. Price, the visiting custodian, playing a fine game. Towards half-time, play greatly fluctuated. The greater part of the half was most uninteresting, the players apparently kicking in an aimless manner, the home forwards being particularly faulty before goal. About twenty minutes after resuming, W. Lewis, from a corner kick placed by John Roberts, headed a second goal for Bangor, whilst towards the close the visiting outside left scored a splendid goal, the result of an individual effort on his part. The Druids made strenuous efforts to equalise but fiiled to do so. Result:—Bangor, two goals; Druids, one.
