FOOTBALL INTELLIGENCE. THE ENGLISH ASSOCIATION CHALLENGE CUP.— The Druids (holders of the Welsh cup) beat Northwich Victorias (holders of the Cheshire Cup) in the second round of ties by five goals to nil, at Ruabon, on Saturday. WELSH ASSOCIATION CHALLENGE Cup.-In the second round of ties for this cup, Aberystwyth played Dolgelley (ldris) at Aberystwyth, on Saturday, and beat them by two goals to nil, and the Wrexham Hare and Hounds played Coedpoeth the same day, at the latter place, the game resulting in favour of the Hare and Hounds by four goals to two.—The Berwyn Rangers will meet the Oswestry White Stars on Saturday, at Llangollen, to decide the same tie. CUTTING A FIGURE.-We are pleased to note the reputation which our old local favourice, Mr. William Roberts, is gaining in the renowned centre of athletes, Birmingham. Even when in the celebrated Aston Villa team and playing against Derby Midland, on the 2nd inst., he drew considerable attention and won unusual honours. The following we quote from an account of the match that appeared in the Midland Athletic Star: Some very clever play by Roberts caused great merriment, and an accurate shot by the Welshman was well kept out by F. Morgan. A good run by Archie was finished up by a magnificent shot, but the Derby custodian managed to got it away, and Roberts, who backed up splendidly, sent the leather just over the bar. Some very pretty dodging by Brown gave Roberts a chance, but slipping just as he was about to shoot, the goal-keeper had no difficulty in saving his charge, but from a determined scrimmage in front of the visitors' goal, Whately was successful in adding a second point. Some grand play by Roberts again brought the play to the Derby quarters, and from a pass by Whately, Archie shot high over the bar." Some time after change of ends, Harvey kicked from goal, and Roberts did some magnificent work on the Villa left, but Davies, to whom he passed, got too far into the corner, and centred right behind the posts. The game was now carried on almost in darkness, and a blinding fall of snow added considerably to the discomfort both of the players and onlookers. Roberts now put in some very clever play, and treading his way through his opponents, got the ball safely between the sticks, thus scoring the fourth point for his side."
