SHROPSHIRE WANPERER3 V. DRUIDS (RUAHON).— A match was played between these two clubs at Shrewsbury, on Saturday. Several good players were absent from the Shropshire team, and un- doubtedly the Welshmen had the advantage throughout. They won the toss, and elected to kick with the wind, which was rather strong. The game was very hotly contested, and resulted in the victory of the Druids by five goals to three. Throughout, the form of the Druids was far superior to their opponents, a fact which must be partly duo to the absence of some of the best Salopian players Powell and Kettle played ex- ceeding!; well. Among Salopians, Wilson, Lc-ck, and Baddeley distinguished themselves. The teams weifl as follows Shropshire Wanderers: Goal, J. Brown: back, W. Wilson; half-backs, Lloyd, R. M. Waicrs, and Thatcher right wing, Landucci and Baddeley; left wing, Lock and How centries, Horku and Sale. The Druids: Goal, B. Roberts backs, J. Powell (captain), J. Stevens, and R.

A. Williams, but it was disallowed on the plea of off-side." After the ball was kicked off for the second time the Victorious began to play rather a rough game, trying to equalize matters. The ball having been kicked to the right wing, E. and D. Williams managed to pass the backs, and succeeded in scoring a second goal. The Victori- ous again made several attempts to score, and W. Roberts at last managed to sond the ball through the posts, scoring their only goal.
