NORTH WALES AMATEUR CUP. CARNARVON V. CONWAY. The final for the North Wa lt a Amateur Cup was played at Bangor on Saturday- in fin e. weather. The game for the most part was very disappointing, the Canaries being much below their ordinary form. Fouli were frequent, and a penalty against Conway enabled Carnarvon to capture the cup for which they have fought so hard in the semi-final against Beaumaris. What. Beaumaris would have done on Saturday against Conway, it is difficult to surmise. But to the game. < The weather wa.s if anything too fine for football. The ground was in grand condi- tion, soft and yielding, but it was evident from the beginning that it did not suit the Carnarvon players. The play was of a see-saw character, both ends being visited alternately, without a eat display of talent. If anything the 'Conway men were more energetic, but their finishing work was lamentable. The Carnarvon halves and backs were without exception weaker than usual. They miskicked on several occasions, and were exceedingly lucky in escaping without a goal against them. The forwards did not shine at all, and their shooting all round left much to be desired. George Henry did his part well, and stopped several dangerous shots. » « The first half was slightly in favour of Conway, who pressed continually. At times, however, the Carnarvon forwards combined well, but they were strangely in- effective in front of goal. Walter Jones essayed a run on his own, but his progress was cut short by Tom Jones, the Conway right full. Tom Roberts a few minutes later got possession of the ball fut failed to score although he had every chance to do so. Walter essayed another run and was grossly fouled by Tom Jones well within the penalty area. R. H. Roberts took the [penalty kick, but Fred Parry caught the ball and' cleared in a most business like manier. During the next few minutes, the Canarie? were at sea and did not seem to realise the importance of the game. Johnny Griffiths and M. Herbert miskicked one after the other with the result that George Henry was called upon very unexpectedly to stop a stiff shot from Johnson the Conway inside right. < The second half opened in favour of Conway, and Tom Craven with a good shot nearly beat George Henry, who had to colaced-e a corner, which was well tplaced, but beaten back. Within the next two minutes, the ball was in the Conway half. and Johnny Jones put it into the goal mouth. Fred Parry cleared just in time, and a visit was paid to the other end where Sam Parry, with a rapid shot was within an ace of scoring. At this point J. Jones left the field injured, and the Canaries at last swemed to realise their position. A change came over their play, and the latter mrt of the game saw a veritable rout of toe Conway: men. For a few minutes they were entirely outclassed, and a penalty brought about their downfall after a stubborn at- tempt to escape defeat. From now tif the en-d of the game, Carnarvon press* repeatedly, but no more goals were scored Tom Roberts, just before the whistle went. had the Conway goalkeeper at his n.ercv, but hs dallied with the bail and lost it.
CARNARVON V. COLWYN BAY. On Monday Carnarvon played Coiwyn Bay in a iJeague fixture. Johnny Jones and !H. Roberts were absentees and their places were taken by Robert Trevor Roberts and 'Jack Williams. The game was very pretty to watch, but not very exciting. The best forward on the field was R. H. Roberts. the Carnarvon captain. His centres d'urinz the first half were magnificent. Time after time he dropped the ball right in front of the Colwyn Bay goal, but none of his efforts were taken advantage of. The ColwYn Bay defence was very safe. A sounder pair of ibacks it is difficult to find, and their sterling play on Monday averted a heavy defeat for their side. The only goal of the game wa" scored by Tom Roberts in the second half
BEAUMARIS V. PWLLHELI On Monday a League match was plavc- i Beaumaris being the visitors. The gam« Na-9 well contested from start to fin -n, and was probably the best match ever .en on the Recreation Gr v nd. Be?.:maris D'lt to the field their strongest team possible, among the players bei-g Lawson, of rftock- iport County. The homesters won the game by three goals to two. Tile home half- backs were superior to the visitors' trio, and the forward line proved more danger- ous than that of their opponents. The defence of both teams was good. This match was also witnessed by a large crowd. The gate money was as follows: Good (Friday, C6 7s 6d; Saturday, £ 17; and Monday, £ 18.

NORTH WALFS JUNIOR CUP. The holders (Llarv st) met Bangor A in the final for the North Wales Junior Cuo on the Council Fiei Llandudno on Satur- day afternoon. Mr A. C. Slater (Llandud- no) was the referee. It was noticed that among the Bangor eleven were two or three of their Combina- tion players, one bein;" Dick Jones, the well- known centreforward. Bangor won the toss and played with their ibacks to the sun and in the direction of the seaward goal The leather had not been a I minute in motion before Dei Jones, to the I great consternation of the Llanrwst men I notched a point in favour of the City team, thj Roosters' custodian having not a ghost of a chance to save. Midtield play fol- lowed, and shortly afterwards, one of the Bangor men was penalised within the 12 yards line. Archie Carter took the kick and found the net. The play became fast and found the net. The play became fast and furious, Bangor having by far the best of the game. in consequence of the erratic kicking of some of the Llanrwst men. But the bad got to the foot of Hughie Pierce. who succeeded in finding the net. At hcCT time the score stood Llanrwst 2, Bangor 1. During the first half a few of the players were lamed, while one of the Llanrwst men entirely through his own fault was kicked over the eye whidh necessitated medical treatment at the hands of Dr Huw Williams (Llanrwst). and the game was delayed five or six minutes. After the resumption of the game it was evident that the City men meant business, and they equalised in a very short time. Llanrwst kept on the defence for a period until Hughie Pierce got the leather which was handled by the Bangor custodian. The latter fell, and there was a scramble in t.he mouth of goal. However, Pierce stuck to his guns and netted. The Roosters were beside themselves with joy. The Bangor men seemed to be getting tired, and two or three of the Llanrwst men were hobbling about practically disabled. Young Jones on the left wing, notwithstanding his lameness, was doing some magnificent work for Llan- rwst, and his runs were loudly applauded. Instead of kicking out of touch as the time was drawing nigh, the Roosters freshened to the attack as the only safe course to keep the enemy at bay, and they were amply re- warded, because Bertie Griffiths, two minutes before the call of time put in the best goal of the day amidst great enthusiasm and this made the position of his club per fectly safe. Bangor lost heart, and the game ended in favour of the cup holders by 4 goal a to 2. The Cup was presented to the captain cf the Llanrwst team by Mr J LI. Williams. secretary of the North Wales Football Association. He said that on the play the best team had won.
THE COMBINATION. BANGOR V. BIRKENH'EAD. Played at Bangor, After fifteen minutes play, fine passing by Dargie, Richie, and Thomas ended in the latter scoring. Chap- man later cleared in marvellous style. Bangor lost Jones, and Birkenhead pressed, Duggan scoring from the touchline. Jones equalised, and Joe Thomas put Bangor ahead. After Chapman had wonderfully cleared a scoring shot by Davies, Tnomas knocked him down with a tremendous shot. but Chapman cleared and fell on his back. and Thomas shot in again, Chapman putting it over his head into tne net. Half-time Bangor 3, Birkenhead 1. Birkenhead got a penalty kick in the first minute of the second half, but Duggan sent wide. Oliver scored a fourth for Bangor from Dargie's centre, and Davies scored a fifth. Birken- head scored from a penalty. Result: Bangor 5, Birkenhead 2. • • • BANGOR V. TRANMERE, Played at Bangor in bright weather. before a big gate. Mrs M'Gaul Williams, Mayoress of Birkenhead, was present on the grandstand. Bangor attacked in the first I minute, and Jones fumbled a grand shot, but cleared as 'Hughie Davies dashed at him. A moment later Jack Jones shot ba hind. Tranmere got down, and CoodwiD shot wide, e^ndl goon afterwards Jones tested the home keeper with a beauty minutes from the start Davies and Oliver beat the Tranmere defence, Oliver centring perfectly, and Arnolc Dar.gie headed a beautiful goal for Bangor. Alfy Thomas smashed up the Tranmere forwards with brilliant half back play, but Tranmere came again with swift passing, and Jones tested Owen with a beauty, wrnch he cleared on the ground. Tranmere still pressed. A breakaway by Oliver and Davies ended with Davies sending in a scorching daisycutter, which beat, Jones all the way, but struck the upright and" -went behind. Half-time Bangor 3, Tranmere nil. In the second half Bangor^ continued to hold the upper hand, and twice more got through the Tranmere defence and scored, the result being: Bangor 5 goals, Tranmere Rovers nil. ■» BANGOR V. WHITCHURCH. At Bangor on Wednesday. After five minutes play Bangor scored tnroug-hi Thomas Whitchurch attak d with great skill, and the Bangor defence was severely 'lied. ihe victor* tj! r-Tc-t-ed. but shot badly. Bangor at last broke away. Oliver forced a corner and placed grandly, but Richie 'kicked over the bar. Dargie drew Chesters out of goal and headed the ball over Chesters's head into the net. Half a minute later Dargie scored a third for Bangor. In the second half Chesters had to save from H. Davies. A moment later he fisted away a long shot from A. Thomas. After end-to-end play Davies tested Chesters at close quarters which cleared. Whitchurch attacked but were driven back, and Dargie, running in, be Chesters. Bangor again attacked, and Chesters put a fine shot from H. Davies round the post. Following this Bangor bombarded Chesters's charge, which escaped. At last Whitchurch got an opening, but Evans shot behind in an open goal. Bangor resumed the attack. Cheaters defended well. At last Chesters partially stopped a grounder from Richie, and Davies netted'. -0

CONGRATULATIONS.—At a meeting of the Town Council last weaek, the Mayor (Dr M. J. Morgan) on behalf of his colleagues, congratulated Alderman Dr R. A. PrichaTd upon the honour conferred upon him by being elected to the chairmanship of the Carnar- von County Council. OBITUARY.—Mr David Davies, farmer, residing at Llwyn Onn Farm, Roe Wen, was found dead in bed on Tuesday morning. The deceased, who had not been in very strong health for some time, was out working on Monday. He was over 80 years of age, and had been a deacon for over 50 years at the Welsh Calvinietic Church at Roe Wen. LABOUR CLAUSE IN CONTRACTS.— At a meeting of Conway Town Council, the Mayor (Councillor Dr M. J. Morgan) presiding, Mr Robert Jones, the Labour member, in referring to the recommendation of a committee that the tender of Messrs Hughes and Rowlands, of (Coiwyn Bay, be accepted for the laying of the water mains from Deganwy to Llanrhos, asked whether the committee had taken any steps to ensure the employment of local men by the contrac- tors. He referred to the number of unem- ployed in the borough at present, who, he urged, should be provided with work when the Council had a reasonable opportunity of helping them in the matter.—The Borough Surveyor said he would write Messrs Hughes and Rowlands urging them to employ local labour so far as possible.—Mr Netherwood agreed with Mr Robert Jones, and moved that the next lowest tender be accepted.— Mr Fred Jones, in seconding, said that the tenders had come before the committee by numbers rather than in the names of the tenderers, otherwise he thought the com- mittee would have adopted the course now suggested by Mr Netherwood.—Mr A. J. Oldman moved that a clause be inserted in the contract with Messrs Hughes and Row- lands that local labour be employed. He had been under the impression when the matter came before the committee that that had been stipulated.—Mr Porter suggested that, inasmuch as the members of the com- mittee did not know what had been before them, the matter be referred back so that they could enlighten themselves (laughter). —Mr Conway Jones said he objected to Mr Porter's remark. When the tenders came before the committee they had brought pres- sure to bear upon the surveyor to make every arrangement possible that the contrac- tor employed local labour, which Mr Dela- motte promised to do. The Council had ad- j opted a rule that tenders should be dealt I with by numbers, and he thought they should adhere to that rule. Every man should have work to do, but under the cir- cumstances he could not consistently do other than approve the committee's recom- mendation.—Dr Carter agreed.—It was eventually resolved that Messrs Hughes and Rowlands' tender be accepted on the understanding that local labour be employed on the work so far as possible.
