Abernant Football Club. PRESENTATION OF CUP AND MEDALS. At the Abernant Council Schools on Thursday evening last a tea and social were held to commemorate the Aber- nant Football Club's success last sea- son in securing the championship of the Welsh Football League in Division IV., and also in becoming the runners-up in the Troedyrhiw Tournament. The tablei were most tastefully decorated, which reflected great credit on Miss Maggie James and her staff of assis- tants. Over 200 partook of the refresh- ing beverage. Councillor William Thomas, Aberdare, who is, by the way, the president of the club, was present. The following ladies presided at the tables:-Miss Blodwen Samuel and Miss H. Meyrick; Miss Gwen Jenkins and Miss Betty Davies, Aberdare; Mrs D. W. Watkins and Mrs D. J. Davies; Mrs J. B. Jones and Miss Annie May Williams, assisted by Miss May Sam- uel. The cutters were Mrs A. Wil- liams and Mrs T. Samuel. Superin- tendent, Miss M. James. Organiser, Mr David J. James. Grace was said by Mr Ben Samuel, Abernant. At the concert the chair was taken by Mr David James, in the absence of Councillor W. Thomas, who was obliged to leave. The Chair- man read letters from Councillor A. P. Jones; Alderman David Hughes; Mr T. D. Jones, Education Offices, and Mr William Hughes, M.E., apologising for their inability to be present. An over- ture was given by Mr Jesse Burford. Songs by Master J. R. Lewis, of Pen- heolgerrig. Mr John L. Williams sang Thora."—The Chairman afterwards called upon Mr R. Silverman, the Muddied Oaf" of the Aberdare Leader," bo make the presentation of the cup and medals.—Mr Silverman said that they were there to commemor- ate an unprecedented event in the ei history of Abernant, viz., the winning of the Welsh Football League Challenge Cup and Medals and the Troedyrhiw Tournament Medals. The Abernant Football Club has been in existence five years, and both the officials and players had to contend with a host of obstacles. The players had won in an honourable manner, and no one could raise a finger of reproach against any member or player of the club. The team's record was one to be proud of. having played 21 matches, won 18. drawn 2, and lost only 1. They secured 98 goals for and 13 against in the League competition. The medals se- cured in the Troedyrhiw Tournament were also well earned, and they were within an ace of winning the tourney outright. This reflected great credit upon Mr Charlie Williams, the captain; his able band of players, and especially upon Mr David John James, who acted in the dual capacity of secretary and player. Mr James was the very life and soul of the club. It was only a short time ago that he was presented yith a gold medal by the members of the club in recognition of his having acted as secretary and player for the last five
