FOOTBALL. INTER-COUNTY MATCH. On Wednesday afternoon, in fine weather, and before a good gate, a match, arranged by the North Wales Coast Football Association, between representatives of Car- narvonshire and Flintshire, was played on the Bangor ground. The teams were as advertised with the exception that Gordon Jones did not play. The Carnarvonshire team were the superior eleven in the first half, and a couple of minutes after the start Sam Roberts sent up to Walter Lewis, who Sot in a lonely centre, which Thomas (Bangor) eaded down in the goal mouth, and Glass fumbling the ball, Hedly Bevan (Llandudno) sprang in and safely netted the ball. About twenty minutes later, after dashing play on both sides, but during which the superiority always remained in the Carnarvonshire men, Buckland placed a corner right in the mouth of the goal, and it. would have gone harmlessly in if Roberts (Carnarvon) had not jumped up and headed it into the net. In the second half, play was more even, the Flintshire representatives scoring twice in brilliant fashion, but the Carnarvonshire men, putting on a spurt, also scored twice, once as the result of a magnificent effort by Webb, which Bevan forced in after Glass had cleared, and a second time as the result of a superb return by Ned Hughes, who, from the middle of the field, dropped the ball under the bar, and the ball and Glass were inatantly tumbled into the net. Both Glass and Alec did splendid work. The best ,back on the field was Lloyd, of Flint, while among the forwards the honours were about equally divided between Webb, Walter Lewis, Bevan, Morgan Owen, and the Flintshire left. Buckland and Ned Hughes were the best of the halves. THE NORTH WALES COAST CUP. LLANDUDNO SWIFTS v. BANGOR. The final tie was played at St. Asaph on Satarday.
