FOOTBALL NOTES. (BY "THE LOITERER."). The Bangor team did not turn up on Satur- day, as had at first been anticipated, but a mutual irrangement had been come to, and the match was postponed. There mlS no eontest in the North Wales League on Saturday, and the table, therefore, remains the same. But next Saturday a very interesting game will be witnessed at Rhyi, j when Flint will meet the leaders to again draw conclusions. Who will win ? Matches. Goals. P. W. L. D. F. A.

The second semi-final for the North Wales Junior Cup came off at Rhyl, before a large attendance, the combatants being the Llan- dudno Swifts Reserves and Buckley Town. In the first half, Buckley, who defended the pavilion end', had decidedly the best of mat- ters, but half-time arrived without any scor- ing. In the second half Llandudno showed vastly superior form, the combination among the forwards soon producing a cleverly-got goal. Buc-kiey in turn forced the play, and drew level, but the Llandudno man were very effective in front of goal, and finally ran out winners by three to one. The defence of Brookes, Roberts, and Hughes, for Buckley, was conspicuous. Llandudno have now to meet Greenfield Villa in the final. Rhyl visited Llanrwst on Saturday, to play a friendly with the home team, before a good crowd of spectators. The ground was covered with three inches of snow. The visitors won the toss, and elected to play with the sun at their backs, but the home team immediatedy scored from a nice run up, another goal fol- lowing a few minutes later. Rhyl pulled to- gether, and after several times experiencing htard lines managed to register No. 1, and when. half-time arrived each had two goals to their credit. On restarting, Rhyl were the first, on the aggressive, and penned the home team in their own goal almost during the whole of the last half. A. Owen notched the third goal, wh..e the fourth, fifth, and sixth followed, in quick succession. the game thus ending in a victory for Rhyl by six goals to two. Newtown received a more severe* whipp- ing" off Everton Reserves in their return friendly at home on Saturday than they did during the holidays at Gooddson Park. Their defeat then was only three goals to one, but on Saturday Everton won by five goals to one. There was a large attendance. Everton, in the first half, the wind in their fav- our, scored five goals to Newtown one. In the second half the play was more evtei, and neither side were able to add to their score. Final score Everton, five goals Newtown, one. » In the third round of the Denbighshire and Flintshire Charity Cup, Rhostyllen Victoria had the Westminster Rovers as visitors. The weather was frosty, but the match attracted a good) attendance. At the interval Rhos- tyllen Victoria led by one goal to none. In the second half each side scored once, and the result was :—Rh&styIIei] Victoria, two goals Westminster Rovers, one. The following teams were selected on Mon- day night to play in the Welsh international trial match at Wrexham Racecourse on March 4 :—'Whites Upton (Druids), goal; Edwards (Oswestry) an-ci Mathlas (Brvmbo). backs; G.

Are there no players from Aberystwyth, Carnarvon, Llandudno, Rhyl, and Flint worth v of a trial ? There was a large attendance at the Wrex- ham Racecourse on Monday to witness an encounter between representatives of the araiy and navy. The 2nd Battalion Royal Welsh Fusiliers (Manche-ster), and H.M.S. Excellent" sent the competing elevens, and a silver cup (value £ 14), subscribed for by the members of the Wrexham Church Gym- naftium, was offered to the successful team, Half-time score Navy, four goals; Army, one. Final Navy, five goals Army, three. < By their victory over the Red Stars at Mold, the previous week, the Druids have improved their position in the Welsh League, and thereby pass Chirk, but the latter have two more games in hand. The clubs stand thus:— Matches. Goals. y I P. W. L. D. F. A. Points Wrexham 14.11." I. Druids .14. 7. 3. Chirk.12. 6. 2. WminsterR.il. 4. 3. Brymbo. 8. 3. 1. Rhostyllen.11. 3. 7. 1.28.48. 7 Mold R.

The tillw that had set in during the week had made the ground a bit slippery, There was a fairly good gate. The had a weak team, and had to play the first fifteen minutes with nine men. I expected an easy win for the home team. but when I reached the field and saw how matters stood. I had given up all hopes. The University men played a very nice combined game, and the backs and goalkeeper showed up well. Carnarvon were the first to score, but the poiiat was disallowed. Then the visitors had a look in and a goal to their credit was scored, which was a very tame one. Just on the call of half-time, Pritchard equalised. | After the interval Carnarvon played a little better, but far from form. Edwards sent in a beauty, which struck the crossbar. but Pritchard made it safe, and scored X o. 2. After this the home forwards made sever- al trials, but the visitors' goalkeeper (Jenkins) and Williams (left hack) played grandly. The University men managed to score twice again, and returned victors by three goals to two, the result of the previous match at Bangor being a win for the .K ops by 3-1. Well, 'Nops, you are letting the game pro- ceed too far before rousing yourselves up. The team that played the best game won, they were better combined, while some of the homesters had a tendency to lie selfish. For the Ironopolis, Pritchard, Edwards, and H. Williams played well at forward I Bob Llovd Jones capital at half, and Vy. Jones and D. O. Williams at back. but were very weakly assisted at goal, the custodian being that of the Bangor Druid Rovers. Gray (inside left) and Pritchard (outside right), for the visitors, also played well, and the trio halves put in some good work.
