FOOTBALL NOTES. A very disappointing game was seen at Bangor on Saturday, when the home team encountered Chirk, an erstwhile famous eleven, under the auspices of the Com- bination. The meeting between the teams at Chirk resulted in a surprising win for Bangor, and it was confidently anticipated that they would repeat that performance on Saturday. It is doubt- ful whether any Combination fixture played on the Bangor ground has produced such tame and gentle football. The win was lucky, as Chirk monopolised the greater part of the game, and they were very unfortunate to lose by an odd goal, for in everything except scoring they were the equals of the winners, and their de- fence was decidedly superior. Chances in plenty the home forwards had, but there was an utter lack of cohesion and method, and when in front of goal they seemed to lose their heads, displaying a lamentable incapacity for scoring. Their usual rush- ing and worrying style, which has proved C, so successful in the past, was entirely absent. The absence of Bob Roberts from the home team certainly weakened the de- fence, for his substitute, Sam Roberts, was sadly defiaient at times. One player stood out from the rest-Ted Owen, the home custodian, to whom Bangor owe much for his masterly display, and the several saves which he effected were highly creditable. Of the half backs J. Arridge was most prominent, whilst Jimmy Jones was the only forward who did his side any service. An achievement, worthy of the greatest praise, was accomplished on Saturday by the Bangor Reserves, who suceeded in drawing with Holywell on the ground of the latter, in a North Wales Coast League fixture. The game was full of exciting in- I cidents, both goalkeepers being repeatedly tested, and the Holywell goal experienced several narrow escapes.
