THE COMING SEASON. ALL LAST YEAR'S MEN AVAIL- ABLE. A NEW HALF BACK IN THE TOWN. [BY FRES LANC *] With the meeting of the Swansea Football Club last evening the football season of 1895-6 may be considered to have begun. Last night the captains were appointed and the list of fixtures announced. Now we know where we stand. "We have," to quota the words of the newly-eltctcd captain, "a heavy fixture list," the question, therefore, for discussion now is what men shall we have available to do battle for the "all whites." All previous surmises as to the probable compoait;on of the team must of necessity have been to a great extent speculative. For some days past in- formation has been iu my posses- sion relative more particularly to the composition of the rear division of the All White team. which I have previously thought it wiser to withhold. But now we can sniff the scent of coming battle frem afar, po lon!- and I can reiii-tin sileit ,er. It lia, been stated "gain and again that we shall be in a bad way JD Swansea this season so far as our rear division is concerned. Unless I am much mistaken, we shall be stronger than last season, and what a fine defensive game we eould play then many of our opponents dis- covered to their cobt. BACK. So far, of course, as back is concerned, we have nought to fear, Bancroft is with us still, and we have, if ilnel be. an able substi- tute in Jenkins, the old Danygraig JURa, who did good service last year after Bancrofts injarv at Newport. THEEEQUARIEU. The rerr quartette was expected t3 Its our weakness this season. It had be-.i. slated that the Crockera and Bob Messer were unwilling to play. Humbug: Bjb Messer told me a few days sinoe that he intends to play. Gordeu is eager and ready for the fray, and will occupy his old position on the right, while in the centre we have three or four good men available. I am able to-day to state definitely that both the Crockera Will be available, and that Chegwidden is also willing to ugain don the all white jarsev. Chegwiddcn has broadened out greatly since last year, and should this sea.son prove a tower of strength in the centre. In u.tse of emer- geticy we b.?ive Ted There- ,oo(i, old s,oortsr.ian that le is ias kiig-iified his ,tvillin.-uop,s to play if called upon. HALF-HACK, At half-back we shall miss lively Tim Blaekmore, who, for reasons stated bv me some days since, will not play this season. Jack Prescott, who has just bceu elected vice-captain, will be seen in his eld position behind the scrum, and be will very probably be partnered bv a new comer to the town within the past few weeks, I refer to James, who a coupio of seasons ago played a- wing three-quarter for Aberavon, and while there was the shining light of their rear quartette. But James's, real position is at half-bact;, and it is there that I shall expect to sco him. James has been in London during the past year or so, but is now I hear, in the employ of the Swansea Harbour Truat. THE PACK. ^i^- As regards forwards wa need fear no foe, our two Internationals, A, [ M. Jenkin, Jackson, R. S. Jenkin, Bob Thomas, Dick Oldham, J. Williams, Smith, Grey, and Sam Rice will r.li be available, and possibly also B. Livingston, though I hear tilat ttio -i linee is liarkily I'Liclv to allo%v iiil,l lo plav iii t,ae first few nii-telles. Tlien. too, we have one or two new forwards i recontly come into the town, one of whom is Walsh, the old Cardiff Harlequins' scrim- mager. — II I II I Wl.lll ,M,,|Wi_JLJ|
