Departure of Driscoll. I A PROMISING RECRUIT TO RE PLACE HIM. The improvements to the cycle track at Pon- tardawe in accordance with the suggestions thrown out by the N.C.U., have now been com- pleted. The bottom corner, which previously was somewhat difficult to negotiate at top speed, can now be taken by the merest novice with absolute ease and freedom, and the straight course leading to the corner has been widened by four feet. The down West riders fear the coming of the Cardiff and Newport cracks to compete for the five-mile champion- ship, which is to take place at the sports on September 17. Beynon, the locaf clubman, M looked upon as a strong candidate for this event. A spacious and well-positioned grand stand has lately been f-rected at the entire expense of Mr. Gilbertson. The site answers well for the cricket, football, and finishing gtraight of the track. It is owing to this gen- tleman's munificence that Pontardawe sport and athletics are so well to the fore. ? Football at Bridgend commenced in real earnest on Saturday, when about 40 members of the local club turned out for the final trial practice. There was some capital play wit- nessed, and a good deal of fresh talent was discovered. More enthusiasm than has been witnessed for years was exhibited by the players, and th-? reason is likely to prove a successful one. Mr. Secretary Schofield has arranged a strong programme, among the clubs to be played being Llanelly, Swansea, Neath, Llwynypia, &c. It is gratifying to < note the progress made by the club. The liridgend Harlequins, a junior organisa- tion, is, on the other hand, doing none too well. On Saturday it was with the greatest difficulty that a team was raised to journey i to Tondu, three miles off. and now I under- stand that some of the principal players have resigned their membership. Perhaps, the col- lapse of the Harlequins is for the best, as if they joined the premier club a fairly strong second string might be put in the field, in addi- tt tion to strengthening the ranks of the first. 1 It seems hard to beiive, as appears in another column of the "Express," that Driscoll has really gone Xorth this morning. Yesterday he was playing in the nine-a-side football com- petition for Dobson's team, and, in answer to several of his friends who asked him the ques- tion, Driscoll said that he was not going North. If he has gone it will be a big blow to the Cardiff Club. hardly so big, however, as would have been the case if we had not seen young j Bush play on Wednesday. Always a bit smart, a Bush has improved since last season tremen- 1 dously, and, although he was not playing against any particular class, one or two smart movements that he executed were clever enough to give one the idea that he would be a dangerous man against any side. He is much like Driscoll in style, and as clever as a monkey. It is to be hoped that the Cardiff Club will see their way clear to rive him & trial. The nominations of officials for the Welsh I Rugby Union are to hand this morning, and f turn out exactly as I predicted on Wednesday, so that no further comment need be made upon the subject. The meeting, it may be noted, is called for Wednesday, September 21, at 6.30, at the Queen's Hotel. Cardiff. The business is, according to the agenda, to elect the various officials, consider application of clubs for membership. —c. The following are the nominations: -President, Sir J. T. D. Llewelyn, Bart., M.P.; vice-presidents, H. S. Lyne (New- port), W. D. Phillips (Cardiff), J. Livingston (Swanseai, G. Henry (Llanelly), and D. H. Bowen (Llanelly), nominated by S. F. Elt and D. J. Price; secretary, W. E. Rees (Xeath); hon. treasurer, W. Wilkins v-llanelly. East District (three seats): Match committee, A. J. Davies (Cardiff), W. M. Douglas (Cardiff), A. J. Gould (Newport), and H. E. Morgan (Penarth), nomi- nated by H. Hayes and Hubert Alexander. West District (three seats): W. Wilkins iLlan- elly), G. E. Bowen (Swansea), T. D. Schofield (Bridgend), and F. G. Jenkins (Aberavon), nomi- nated by D. R. David and Captain Morris; and E. V. Pegge (Neath), nominated by L. J. Kemp- thorns and S. F. Fat. Mid District tf-wo seats): T. Williams (Llwynypia) and A. Llewellin (Pontypridd). Monmouthshire District (one sieat): J. Games (Abercarn). The one or two races I saw in connection with the sports on the Gardens on Wednesday gave me the idea that we saw some of the best running that we have witnessed this year. Mr. Griggs must be proud of the close finishes both in the heats and the finals of the cycie „ events. In one final, indeed, a. table-cloth would have covered the first four men. The only runaway race was the quarter, in which Russell, the Cardiffian, ran in rare style. Cullum was unable to get up in the final, and could do no better than fourth. Probably one of the biggest bargains of the Drnidstone sale on Wednesday was the 15.3 chesnut gelding secured by Mr. Stewart, the well-known veterinary surgeon. That he is a goer the mere fact of Mr. Stewart buying him is sufficient guarantee, for whatever we have seen him drive has always been able to Uk slip along. The gelding in question, however, has magnificent action, uses his hocks, has 1 plenty of substance, and, whilst full of Quality, is exceptionally good-mannered. He would make a rare good brougham horse, and I sha.il be surprised if Mr. Stewart does not manage to capture a first with him in the Cardiff show next week. WELSH ATHLETE.
