Cardiff Cor- inthians.—This match provided a great attraction at Penrhiweeiber on Satur- day last. After some ding-dong play the Corinthians opened the score. After this the play brightened up consider- ably, and after a few moments' play the Corinthians scored their second goal. The Guild now seemed to get to- gether in a better manner, and the for- ward line were playing well. After a splendid movement Eynon had vej-v hard luck in not scoring. The Corin- thians' centre-half was playing defensive game, and his passes were putting the forwards in splendid motion. After some pretty footwork- they scored their/ third goal. The teams changed ends with the Corinthians three goals ahead. After the interval the home team were playing splendidly, and Bar- low, Eynon, and Evans had hard luck in not scoring. The Corinthians' goalie was playing a magnificent game, and undoubtedly saved his side. The pick of the Guild were: 1. Evans, G. Bar- low, W. Roberts, and Gibbon. The veteran Barber Jones as usual played a good game. The game ended in'a win for the Corinthians by the score of four goals to nil. The referee was Mr J. M. S. James, Cwmbach. < < I learn that the Trecynon Windsors Association Football Club will be re- vived shortly, and that the club wil) compete in the Welsh League Com- petition next season.

Aberaman Athletic, after their fine performance against i Llandrindod, en- tertained Nelson at Aberaman Park on Saturday last in a Welsh League match. A great deal of interest was centred in the game, as both clubs were joint holders of the South Wales Junior Cup. Aberaman were withbut the services of Munday and Finn, Neads and Parry substituting. Mr Batty, of Merthvr1, re- fereed. For Aberaman were:— Goal, J. J. Neads; backs, W. Owen, T. G. Cumner (captain); half-backs, J. Rhys James, George Key, and D. H. Parry; forwards, J. J. Thomas, J. Evans, T. Howells, C. Silverthorne, and W. A. Vater. Vater put in a good centre, which Aberaman failed to turn into account. The interval arrived without a score. After the restart Silverthorne scored Aberaman's first goal. Right from the kick off Nelson broke away and Rouse equalised. Aberaman now warmed up to their work, and Vater placed his side further ahead with a good drive. Silver- thorne added number three with an unstoppable shot. The home backs had now an easy time, the play being in the Nelson half, and from a centre from J. Thomas Silverthorne headed No. 4. Time was called with Aberaman winners by four goals to one. • • • On Saturday next Aberaman will en- tertain Barry District Reserves at Aber- aman Park in a South Wales Junior Cup Tie to decide 1ïhe right of entry to the semi-final.
