FOOTBALL. LLANGOLLEN v. ST. MARTINS ST. MARTIN'S CUP. These teams met in a St. Martins' Cup tie, at Llangollen, on Saturday last. The Saints turned up with only ten men, and the early part of the game was marred by much futile play and numerous appeals to the referee, the visitors playing the one back game," and playing it badly. Then the Llangollen boys got the measure of their opponents and practically did what they liked with them up to half time when the score read 5-0 in favour of Llangollen. It should have been 10-0' had the homesters taken advantage of the openings that occurred. However they restrained them- selves and did not" rub it in toe thickly, taking pity as it were on their out-classed opponents. Upon, changing ends the superiority of the home team was even more strikingly manifested. "The Saints" had not the slightest chance, Llangollen continuing to All Black their opppnents, and when the whistle sounded they had secured an easy win by 12 goals to nil. Twenty-five to nil would, have better illustrated the character of the play". Goals were scored for Llangollen by Arthur Matthews (1), Arthur Hughes (5), Frank Jones (2), Herbert Clarke (1), Price Evans (1), Fred Griffiths (1) and D. Robertson (1). WELSH AMATEUR CUP.
