C O M BIN A TIO N. BIRKENHEAD v. OSWESTRY. At Rockville, in sunny, but cold weather, with the ground soft and slippery on the top. As Oswestry worn at home by 4-3 only, there was the prospect of a keen struggle, and expectations were reallsed, the sides being well matched. Oswestry had the sun and slope in their favour in the first half, but the Reds had their full share of the play. Both Chapman and F. Wil- liams, in goal, had an easy time, rarely being called upon, as the backs proved quite equal to repelling the somewhat disjointed efforts at at- tack of the respective front lines. Birkenhead were very dangerous .and near goal on two oc- casions, but too much passing lost them their chance. About five minutes from the interval Richards received well in, and be-at Chapman with a high shot. Birkenhead pressed hard to the interval. Half time Oswestry, i Birken- head, nil. Final: Birkenhead, 4; Oswestry, i. WHITCHURCH v. WREXHAM VICTORIA. At Whitchurch. The visitors started fifteen minutes late. Whitchurch pressed .and had a couple of fruitless corners. The ball was then taken to the other' end, but wias smartly lreturned and Davies had hard lines. After pretty play by the home left wing, Morgan shot outside. Green, the visitors' outside right, put in a long shot, which Pennington saved. Shaw headed into the net from a centre by Davies. Half time: Whitchurch, i Wrexham Vies. nil. Final: Whitchurch, 2; Wrexham Vies., 1. NANTWICH v. CHESTER. At Nantwich. In the first minute N antwich left worked into a splelndlid position. Rhoddan however, failed to take a pass, with only Keeley to beat, Chester continued to defend. The Nantwich forwards, finding a surer footing than the opposing line., Walker broke away from the Chester half, .and a sensational run endted in the centre scoring. Afterwards Nantwich press- ed repeatedly, but Chester defence held their own. A hard drive by M'Guinness; hit the Chester post, and Keeley afterwards threw away from Brookes. The Chester hal v,escould not hiold tihe Nantiwch forwards, who swarmed. round Keeley. After half an hour's play the equalising goal came from Rhoddan. Brookes subsequently shot over when only Keeley was in front. Betteley, however, gave Nantwich the lead. Chester pressed towards the interval. Half time: Nantwich, 2; Chester, 1. Final: Nantwich, 4; Chester, I. CHIRK v. DRUIDS. Intense interest was aroused in this Combina- Üon fixture at Chirk, on Saturday, before a good crowd. The opening play was fairly even. A burs-taway by Chirk caused Westley to run out to clear, but Roberts beat him and put the ball into the net, and James, with a brilliant shot, nearly augmented. Victor Jones badly missed equalising with ..an open: goal. Jar in an scored for Chirk. Half time Chirk, 2 goals Druidis, nil. Final: Chirk, 2; Druidis, 2. TRANMERE ROVERS v. CREWE ALEXANDRA RESERVES.. These .teams met at Penton Park in fine weather. The Rovers started) with ten; men against the sun and hill. Davies, the Liverpool Reserve goalkeeper, was in goal. The visitors were smarter on the ball than the home team, Davies having to save on several occasions. Dob-son and Kerr were prominent for the home team with useful runs and centres. Quarter Time: No score. The Rovers were outplayed, for Davies had to handle several times. As Rob,son made his appearance, the visitors scored through Whittingham, Davies having TO chance. Crewe continued to have the best of matters. Lee handled in the area, and from the kick Asitleis landed, the ball high over the bar. White got through for the Rovers, a corner ensuing without avail. Half time: Crewe, Alexandra, i Tranmere Rovers!, nil. Final: Tranmere Rovers, 2; Crewe, 1. ( BANGOR v. WREXHAM. At Bangor, in glorious weather. From a big return by Hwfa, Oliver forced a corner off Moss, and Fowler's charge was seriosly endangered. A miskick by Hwfa let Wrexham in, and; in the ensuing attack Wrexham gained a penalty kick, which Dawson converted. A kick out by Mosis during a subsequent attack by Bangor, landed -the ball in the branches of a tree, from which it took five men and a long brush five minutels to dislodge it. A terrific attack on the Wrex- ham goal followed, the home forwards playing a dashing but rather disjointed game. Again j breaking away, Wrexham put in a magnificent run ending with a lightning shot wide of the post. B,antgor were at the other end: in a trice, Wrexham resorting to kicking out tactics. An- other dash to Banger goal fetched the home cus- todian hurriedly out of goal. but Wrexham main- u -?7er tained a dangerous a,sa il,t. A mi(,I!dle by 01;i, and a shot by Burns forced Fowler to yield a corner, which was cleared. A shot by Bob Evans dropped, on the oorner of the Wrexham net, and Oliver forced a corner, which Evans banged in instantly, Fowler clearing wonder- fully. The next moipent Evans dropped the ball along the bar from a centre by Oliver. Toe Wil- liams ended a long attack by equalising. Quar- ter time: Bangor, 1 goal; Wrexham, 1 goal. Half time Bangor, 1: Wrexham, I. jt In the second half Evans forced a corner, and 'Hwfa headed into the net in the first minute. At the other end Williams tested Davy James with a scorching shot. Bangor resumed the attack, but Wrexham fiercely retaliated. Bril- liant work by Bob Evans carried play to the other end, but the shooting was wild. Fowler saved twice from Evans and Oliver. Three- quarter time: Bangor, 2; Wrexham, 1. Final Banigor, 2; Wrexham, 1.
WELSH AMATEUR CUP. (FOURT HROUND). LLANFYLLIN v. HOLYHEAD. THE DISTANT VISITORS MAKE A CREDITABLE DRAW. (BY "SIR EON.") When the result of the above draw was inti- mated to the Holyhead management, the remark was at once made: "Where is this Llarufyllin ?" And I do hear that many found their geograph- ical knowledge much at fault. However, after a lengthy perusal of maps and "Encydopaedlia Britanicas," the place was even- tually located in, the neighbourhood of Oswestry. To compJelte: the fixture meant an expenditure of £14, with the discouraging prospects of receiv- ing no returns from the poor gates at Llanfyllin. Yet, in a creditable manner, with sportsmanlike faith in the ability of their pets, the Holyhead supporters, with their monetary assistance, said "Go," and go. they did < Leaving Hollyhead at 8.5 p.m. on Friday night to the Tinging cheers of an. enthusiastic crowd, they reached: Llanfyllin at 11.55 a.m. on Satur- day. It was. at once noticed that keen interest was taken in this. important engagement, and the whole population of the small town seemed. to express their appreciation of the plucky efforts of the Holyheadiains in undertaking such a long journey under adverse circumstances1. After par- taking of a well-provided dinner and a much- earned' rest, the blue and whit,e, stripes were seen running through a snow-clad park towards the 'field of play. They were immediately followed Llanfyllin's giant '.entrc haIr. by the red and white stripes of the homesters, and prompt to time, amidst the shouts of "Down with the Blues; 'up with the Reds," Mr Charlie Parry. Oswestry, sounded the whistle, and the teams faced each other in the following order Llanfyllin: E. Holland, go.al; G. H. Ham- mond and D. T. Lloyd, backs; R. Lloyd, J. C. Lloyd and E. R. Jones, halves D. Butters, R. Griffiths, Sidney Williams, R. Thomas, D. T. Griffiths, forward's. Holyhead': W. Collier, goal; T. Conlan, and W. II. Parry, backs W. Taylor, W. T. Jones and R. Ellis, halves; H. Roberts, J. Rowland.s, O. B. Edwards.. W. Brown and H. Brown., for- wards. Llanfyllin, winning the toss, took advantage of the wind' and glaring sun, and before a sparse attendance Edwards set the ball in motion. The Reds at once dashed, forward, and' early on made a spirited attack on .the Blues' goal, Collier hav- ing to soil his igloves from a shot by Thomas. (4S 01-1 tre beaivy gr(aun!d th?,-? visiting fornvax could not get going, and by the rushing tactics adopted by the- Redsi, tiey meant to settle the issue in the first 45 minutes;, if possible'. Theret was no lack of instructions from their supporters, who were convincing them of the compulsory win. Right well did they obey the commands, for several well combined rushes were only frustrated by Conlan and Parry at the last moment. A corner to the Reds looked dan- gerousi, but being badly placed Ellis received and sent out to Roberts., who raced away and centred, only to find' Rowlands and Edwards robbed by Hammond. Getting down again, the Reds sent in a few hot ones to Collier, who was always safe. A capital long 'shot from the homesters' left struck tthe crossbar, and rebound- ed into' play. Sidney Williams rushed up to convert, when Parry ruslhed across and m,amaged to save what appeared a certain goal. Fouls Parry does great things for Holyhead. were very frequent, and the Reds were always the culprits. Nothing .seemed! tOo escape the no- tice of Referee Parry, who struck me as being complete master of the situation. A foul throw by the Reds gave. the Blues; a run up, and from a pass by Brown., Rowlands got through, and with only Holland to beat, he shot tamely in, giving the custodian no difficulty in clearing. Hard lines for the BI-aes. Shortly afterwards, H. Brown was badly fouled when within a few yards from the dreaded area, but the free kick did not profit the Blues, as R. Lloyd gave to Butters, who, running down, was met by Ellis, who placed into touch. Another foul throw by R. LÎoyd gave the visitor,s' left wing a capital opening, but H. Brown's centre went a-begging. The Reds were again swarming round Conlan ancl Parry, and were having matters ail their own way' but score they could not. Con- lan, from a miskick, conceded a corner, and just as D. T. Griffiths was about to take the kick the whistle sounded half time with no score. The homesters' chances of victory were now much decreased1, as upon resuming they had to face a strong breeze and sun, and so they at once adopted! defensive tactics. H. Brown., who had played a good game for his side, immedi- ately sent in a ground shot, but Holland was safe. Mid-field play was indulged in for a time, during which there were many fouls against the homesters. The visitors' half back line were doing good work, and Ellis kept the Reds well in hand1. Conlan and Parry, although near the half line, were giving a grand exhibition), which the home supporters- did not fail to quietly ap- preciate. A good run by Roberts and a capital shot gave the home defence an anxious time, but it always prevailed. The Blues were now attacking strongly, and a capital -shot from Ellis almost opened the account, Holland just manag- ing to clear. A corner to the Blues was well placed by Roberts, and Edwards shot a few yards wide. As time was drawing on the crowd were making frantic appeals to their favourites for an opening goal, but the attentions of Ellis, Conlan; and Parry made it impossible for them to comply, and after a further short period of hard struggling for supremacy, the whistle sounded, and the visitors smiled with the score remaining'—Llanfyllin, nil; Holyhead. nil. NOTES. The Holyhe,ad management are deserving .of every credit for the manner in which, they have conducted their business this season. Unlike other clubs, they cannot boast of having 78 registered players;, yet, with but one-fourth that number they have, 'never shirked a League match or scratched a cup tie. Their latest achievement is a praiseworthy one, inasmuch that it was previously known that they would receive no share of the gate at Llanfyllin. The replay would' probably be no. IOBIS to Lianfylltln, as their share of a possible record' gate at Holy- head would cover the expenses. In considera- -Cio-n of such, T,Ianfyllin i?n,t,end to t.(j journey IT.?oly,hie?ad?. They will, no doubt, meet with a warm receptlion; for their sportsmanlike efforts. Such true sporting conduct is always appreci- ated at Holyhead, whilst the unsportsmanlike tactics of certain clubs are rightly dleispised. As to the match at Llanfyllin, it was a true cup tie. One team with one object in view-to win, the other with. two views of the situation,—a win. or draw. The result was favourably viewed from the visitors'' standpoint. Llanfyllin may not be well known in. football circles; around here, but th^ possess a right down good team, rather weak in defence', but excellent in. attack, and had not the visitors' backs been in. the top of their form they would now be in the semi- final round. Holland in goal was brilliant and from his perfect judgement of a deceiving shot, by Ellis it was evident he was of first class or- cler. The backs, were both shaky at times, and had the visrting forwards been in possession of a grain of their usual dash I i.magine the cus- todian would have had' a lively time. Ham- mond's remarks to the visiting linesman were degrading and rightly received' the referee's con- demnation. The halves were a fair lot, nothing brilliant, ,and I would: advise R. Lloyd to peruse the law 5 Association rules. It may pro-fit his side. What a giant centre half, and how he did kick, some of the visitors feel them yet. The left half was the pick, and played a good game. The forwards; were very smart and quite ,),utela,ssed the visitors' front line,. '('he ',eft many a. g->o,(] '?l.t w a s w,i?ng was the best. and ?i sent in from that quarter. Syd Williams, I fancy, did not please his supporters as they seemed to, expect great things from "Syd." How- ever, he put in some pretty work and kept his wiia,g,,s n,icely, going. 13titt,ers, oTi? i.-iigb?, was 1 ? -i-te., his very sl*ppery--pardon the joke, A.,n,o, shots were well greased. I must admit that I was disappointed with the visitors. I have seen them perform better in friendly fixtures at the Oval. With two or three exceptions, I fancy the long journey did not j agree with them. H. Brown and Roberts were the only forwards that did themselves justice. H. Brown was often badly fouled when in a dangerous position. Roberts made .some fine runs, but his centres always went a-begging. Edwards, Rowlands and W. Brown were busy enough, but did not seem to .get thoroughly going. They may be .in better form at the re- play. The halves worked hard, and Ellis was the best. Taylor, on one oecasiion, fairly beat four of his opponents. Jones was always where needed. The backs were really deserving of every praise, and they rightly got it from friend and foe. I shall never forget how Conlan and Parry worked. They were, in short, "invin- cible." Collier saved many a good shot, and was always din his customary cool attitude. The game was ruled a.s near perfection as could be. Would fha:t we had a few Charlie Parry's around North Wales. The present referee grievance and' scarcity question would soon, be settled. When the replay does take place I can assure the. Holyheadians of a perfectly ruled game. Having travelled with the Holyhead team, let me, in conclusion, express my -appreciation of the obedient and gentlemanly manner in which they all conducted themselves throughout the whole journey.
COAST JUNIOR CUP. (SEMI-FINAL TIE). LLANDUDNO AMATEUR RESERVES v. RHYL VICTORIA. THE VICTORIAS ENTER THE FINAL. (BY "VIGILANT.") This semi-final tie had been long looked for- ward to- by the respective seaside teams, andl as is usual in such contest's!, each side was con- fident of victory. It was an advantage to the, homesters that the contest was held on the Council Field, and a corresponding disedvantage to the Rhylites. However this may be," many teams play better away on many occasions than they do at hornet, and consequently Rhyl fancied their chance's keenly when they were due to try their luck with Llandudno on the latter's ground. The Rhyl men arrived at full strength, and were accompanied by a saloon-full of supporters, including Mr. Tom. Robinson, their Secretary; Mr. Hanlon, and their busy and enthusiastic committee. The journey was, much enlivened1 by th.e witicilsms of John "Res Tai," whose loquaciofusnes's and admiration of the "Vies." were much enjoyed, and enhanced the pleasure of the journey to Llandudno. < The Amateurs Reserve wa's a peculiar com- bination on. this occasion, .being strong in cer- tain parts and decidedly weak in others buit it must be admitted that the Reserves have been much ransacked to fill up necessary gaps from time to time in the first eleven for other cup- ties, and this, of course, precluded several other- wise strong players from being available for Saturday's encounter. The day was charmingly fine for the time of the year, and though dje win,rl was: not as s,tron, as is frequenflv t,ie CaS?l- 9 still it wa)s) ttl'p-Te t?ol an a,,T)pr,e,cia,ble die??rre4-- Owing to the very important cup-ties at Liver- pool, a large number of .spectators were absient seeing the cream of cup-hunting talent in the Welsh Metropolis, and of course this materially affected the gate on the present occasion. r Mr. W. Ll. Jones, of Llanrwst, was feœ'Ð, and the following were the teams — Llandudno Goal, Hobson backs, S. Wil- liams and Cassidy; halves, Bob Abbot, WIll Taylor, andi S.
