Saturday. Burslem Port Vale, 2; Oswestry, NORTH WALES COAST LEAGUE. CARNARVON v. HOLYHEAD. The home eleven gained a very easy win over their opponents at the Oval. Carnarvon, on. Sat. llrdav, for throughout it was apparent that they were by far the better team. There was a good gate. Bright sunshine and crisp frost prevailed. Carnarvon, won the tws. and went away with, a rush. Gregory scoring the first point ten minutes from the start. ° Ten min- utes later Roberts added a second, amidst ap- plause. Both sides afterwards attacked in turn, but neifher gained an advantage for a consider- able while. At length, the "visitors made » smart attack, and scored- This goal, however, Heard ought certainly to have prevented, as Pritchard.was some twenty yards awav when he took deliberate aim. an to the delight of the visitors supporters, the ball was seen to slip flirough the custodian's hands into the net. The homesters continued to have the best of the same, and kept Holyhead on the defensive, and on several occasions, the visitors' goal had very narrow escapes. Li made a run on the left.. and passing to Gregory, the latter swung the leather past the visitors' custodian, but the point was disallowed by the referee. From a huge kick from the middle of the grounds, Alf. Bennett struck the cross bar. and Elson rushing up. caught the return, and banged the ball into the net. Some spirited attacks were made on the visitors' left wing, but there oould have been nothing finer than the home defence, both Fred Jones and Trevor Williams repeatedly getting their side out of the diflicutiies. Half-time: Carnarvon, 3 goals: Holyhead. 1. The game in the latter portion deteriorated considerably, and the home players were frequentlv pulled "P by the referee for fouls. Play, however, went in favour of Carnarvon, who gave but few chances to their opponents. From a pass, Li sent a well-directed shot from the centre of the ground, which passed into the net. Then the visitors' citadel was. subject to a tremendous attack. Subsequently El son passed to Gregory, who. with only thp goalkeeper to heat. sent in a terrific shot, with which the Holyhead custod- ian had no chance to cope. After some mid- field play, T. Roberts, in a skirmish in the goal- mouth, recorded the sixth point for the home- sters. Ellis wa-s then conspicuous on the. left. and shooting from the left corner, the ball just tipped the toe of one of the visitors' backs, and glanced into the net. Then one minute before the whistle sounded, T. Roberts increased the Carnarvon score, the homesters running out victors by eight, coals to one. OTHER MATCHES. CARNARVON COUNTY SCHOOL v. RFAU- MARIS COUNTY SCHOOL. Played on the ground of the former, on Sat- urday. Result: Half-time: 4, Beaumaris C.S., 0. Final: Carnarvon C.S., 8 Beaumaris C. S., 0 PORTMADOC v. BANGOR U. C. N. W. The Bangor Collegians brought down their best team to play a. friendly game with Port- madoc. on Saturday. It was an ideal day for football, and there was a-^good number of spec- tators present. Bangor kicked off. facing the sun. in the first half. They at once pressed, and forced the home custodian to handle the ball. During the first half. the game was fairly even, the Collegians having the better of tb- exchanges on the whole. Half-time- arrived without anv score. The second half was a. re- petition of the first, both goals being visited. but the 'Varsity played the more vigorous and scientific game. Indeed, the combination of their front rank was a treat to watch, while Hopkins at back did splendid work for them. Within a quarter of an hour of the end, the 'Varsity scored a goal through Caldwell, the Poitmadoc goalkeeper having no chance to save. This was the only goal of the match, and tha 'Varsity thus gained a well-deserved victory by one goal to nil. The home forwards compared very unfavourably with the visitors' forwards, their passing being very often at fault. The feature of the game was the magnificent display of the hoime goalkeeper (R. Jones) who, time and ag'ain.. kept off the enemy. If it had not been for his plav, the defeat would probably have been much heavier. Mr R. LI. Evans officiated as referee. The teams were:—Ban- gOT U.C.N.W. Goal, E. P. Evans; backs, Hopkins and Lewis; halves, Fagan. Allen Jones, and Hewitt: forwards. Edmunds, E. Jones, Tudor Jones (ca-pt.). Caldwell, and Davies.
