FOOTBALL. THE COMBINATION. BANGOR v. CHESTER. At Bangor, before 2000 spectators. An un- usual amount of interest Avas centred in the fix- ture, and a close finish anticipated. From first to last the game was well contested, and good form was shown on both sides. Result: Ban- gor, 4; Chester, 4. DRUIDS v. BUXTON. At Ruabon. In the first half, the home team scored 4 goals to 1, and in the second completely penned in their opponents. Final Druids, 6; Buxton, 1. WHITE STAR v. SOUTH LIVERPOOL. At Bootle. Half-time White Star, 3 South Liverpool, 1. Final: White Star, 6; South Liverpool, 1. EVERTON v. WREXHAM. At Goodison Park. At the interval, Ever- ton were leading by 4 to 0. Wrexham scored soon after restarting, and the game was more even. Final: Everton, 4; Wrexham, 1. LLANDUDNO SWIFTS v. CHIRK. Played at Llandudno on Wednesday. The Llandudno team kept the visitors waiting, and the start was a quarter of an hour late. Chirk was strongly represented, but Llandudno played Lunt in place of T. Knight at full back. Chirk won the toss and Jones started for Llandudno. James was soon in the front, and upsetting Fred Jones, had a good chance, but he tripped over his opponent and the opportunity was lost. Chirk, however, had the wind, which was blow- ing strongly, greatly in their favour, and in consequence did most of the pressing in the initial stages of the game. A smart rush down the left wing by Lockly and Williams nearly proved disastrous, especially as a misunderstanding took place between Fred Jones and Robinson, but Roberts rushed up in time and prevented James from putting on the finishing touch. Ned Hughes was then promin- ent, and kept the forwards continually on the go. Jones had hard lines from a capital kick, which just rolled outside the upright, and Allman nearly scored with a clinking "header." Morris cleared, however, and James getting the ball, rushed down, and when tackled by Jones passed across to S. Roberts, who scored with a clinking shot. Half time: Chirk, 1; Llandudno, 0. The advantage of the wind was soon shown after the teams h80 changed ends, and the aspect of the game was quickly altered. Llandudno attacked smartly and a corner fell to them. Ned Hughes took the kick, and the ball rose well in front of the Chirk goal. A smart scrimmage took place, and the ball even- tually found the net and the honours were equal. But Llandudno were now bent on winning, and attacked more strongly than ever. Lunt got the ball from Wynne and kicked down to Allman. The latter raced along and passed to Jones, when in front of Meredith, and the ball was sent into the net in smart style. With only a few minutes to play Chirk made some attempt to equalize matters, and Robinson was called on to make a couple of brilliant saves. Webb sent in a beauti- ful shot right from the corner; Morris made a desperate effort to stop it, and actually touched the ball, but failed to deviate it from its course, and a third goal resulted to the Swifts. Time was called soon after. Final: Llandudno Swifts, 3; Chirk, 1. Matches. Goals. P. W. L. D. F. A. Pts.

On Friday night, the council sat at Wrexham for several hours discussing complaints lodged respecting a Combination match at' Rhvl be- tween Rhyl and the Druids, at the conclusion of which, the Druids alleged, they were mobbed by the spectators. The Rhyl Club denied this, and complained of the language used by one of the Druids' players towards some of the spec- tators. The council decided to caution the Rhyl Club as to the future conduct of their specta- tors, and also warned the Druids' player.
