COMBINATION. RHYL v. NANTWICH. At Rhyl, in dull weather. The homesters won the toss, and played with the aid of a strong breeze, and continually pressed. Rhyl put through, but offside prevailed. W. Williams made a good attempt, but the visitors saved well. A run an the Rhyl right caused the cus- todian to save. Rhyl pres.sed almost the wh-ole of the first half, but could not score. Final: Rhyl, 2; Nantwich, 1. Holyhead makes a Set of Draw(er)s. WREXHAM v. CREWE ALEXANDRA. Played' on Wrexham Racecourse. The home side, starting with ten men, became troublesome to their opponents, but were soon repulsed, and after a short attack by Crewe, R. Whittingham opened their account with a rising shot, which landed in the top of the net. Then Bull narrow- ly missed when well placed. Five minute's later Ellis Moss fouled an opponent in the penalty area, and the kick was converted by Astles. At this stage Robinson turned out for Wrexham. The home lot woke up, and J. Roberts caused Churchill to handle, and then Heisketh put in a good effort. Ll. Griffiths headed a pretty goal for Wrexham. Crewe got two corners, which were cleared. Both ;sddes pressed in turn, and once Lockett missed an open goal for the visi- tors, and Fowler brought off several good saves. Half-time Crewe Alexandra, 2 goal; Wrexham, 1. Final: Wrexham, 4; Crewe, 3. DRUIDS v. WREXHAM VICS. At Ruabon. Despite the disadvantageous wind, Wrexham made headway, Green making a valiant attempt, which Westley deftly negotiated directly afterwards. Da-vies deserved success, but the Druids' custodian continued vigilant. The homesters gradually asserted their superi- ority, ButleT and Wright endangering Peter's charge. Another home incursion culminated in Butler missing badly. The Druids maintained a vigorous attack on their opponents' quarters, but Smith frustrated repeated promising attempts. Play veered to Druids end, but the sterling de- fence prevailed. Owens scored. Half-time: Druid's, i goal; Wrexham Victoria, nil. Final: Druids, 4; Wrexham Vies., 1. OSWESTRY v. WHITCHURCH. At Oswestry. The finalists for the Welshand Shropshire Cups contested Whitchurch, semi- finalists for the latter cup, before a tremendous gate. The wind considerably interfered with the game. Twenty minutes from the start Groves, the home half, had to be carried off. He-nshall sco-re,d for Whitdhurch after thirty minutes' play. Half-time Whitchurch, i Os- westry, o. Final Oswestry, 2; Whitchurch, 2. ———— CHESTER v. CHIRK. This Combination fixture was played off at Chester on Saturday afternoon before a large crowd. Jack Jones, Chester's full-back, was ill, Evans filling the vacancy. The C-eistrians tried two new men in Orimasher (transferred from Tranmere) at left half, and H-ellam (of Diamotnd Match Works) at outside left. Chirk won the toss and had the advantage of a strong wind. Chester kicked off, and Granger 'and Jones checked rushes by the visitors. From a centre by Hellam the home team were dangerous, but the ball went behind. From a centre by Hellam Williams scored. The visitors combined nicely, and after Keeley had been tempted out of goal, they equalised. Half-time: Chester, i Chirk, 1. Final: Chester, 3; Chirk, 1. BIRKENHEAD v. TRANMERE ROVERS. A splendid crowd witnessed the second meet- ing of these' local rivals on successive Saturdays at Rockville on Saturday afternoon. Ev.ans won the toss, and the Reds played down the slope. The Rovers commenced;, and the Reds at once attacked, and within five minutes Hughes work- ed through, and scored with a sample shot, which Robertson made no effort to stop, evident- ly thinking it was going outside. This roused the Blues, who invaded, 'and, following- play near the home goal, they were awarded, a pen- alty five minutes later, but Lee shot straight at Chapman, who cleared. Birkenhead worked down, and Jones just missed the upright from a pass, and Appleton shaved the bar. Robertson saved neatly from a header by Morton. Jones ran down and shot, but Robertson cleared. From a free kick close in to Birkenhead Evans met a return, and scored easily after twenty minutes. Ten minutes later Hughes added a third goal from close in. Half-time Birken- head, 3 goals; Tranmere Rovers, nil. Final: Birkenhead, 3; Tranmere, 1.
WELSH AMATEUR CUP. (SEMI-FINAL TIE). HOLYHEAD v. ABERYSTWYTH. A LUCKY DRAW FOR THE HARBOURMEN. (By "VIGILANT.") An almost oeaselctss drizzling rain, with March winds at their very best, did not teilJd to brighten t'he hopes 01 the semi-finalists for the Welsh Junior, or rather as it is now called, the Welsh Amateur Cup, that app,eare,d upon the Bangor enclosure on Saturday. The climatile conditions were such as might damp the ardour of any team, and a glimpse at the ground made one almost sudder to think of the poor chaps that had to paddle througihthe mud and water for ninety -minutes. In fact, the wonder is that the contestants did so well upon such a pitch,, though I freely admit that ,any ground after the ceaseless ralilli would be in anything but a bright condition. There were miniature pools on the ground, and the impromptu baths received by many a player must have had1 a refreshing (?) effect upon them. The stand was filled with spectators standi ng, for slitting upon the wet seats would have been dangerous, and the press seats court- eously provided by the Bangor management were on this day unusable. The Aberystwyth men had many supporters with them, who had travel- led for five hours to- .see their pets' display, and they accentuated the fact by a free use of rattles and a display of cards with the words "Play up, Aber It did not appear to me that the following of the Harbourmem wais -so large as on the previous Saturday at Carnarvon, which no doubt was ac- counted for by the weather being so bad, and naturally the fact that there is to be another re- play at Carnarvon on Saturday of the cu- tie between the Harb-ourmen and the Bangorian.s. The Holyhead men were the same as appeared at Carnarvon, with a re-arrangement of the front rank, H. Roberts ianid Rowlands forming the right wing, whilst "Franoey" Bogue went to the position of pivot, and the brothers Hughie and William Browln, were playing together on the left. An early kick off was arranged so as to enable the Aberystwythians. to return about five o'clock. Mr Berkeley, the Secretary of the Welsh Football Association, was present and had the management of the fixture in hand. It was a pity that the weather was so unpropitions both as regards the game itself and also the at- tendance, the latter being small in comparison to, what it would have been had the weather been favourable. There was an eager dieiSIÎre to see the nimble Aber men, for they have, like Holyhead, done some good! things this season. They have in previous cup toes beaten Barmouth, and, after a draw with the Portmen, thrashed the latter on the Aber ground,, thus entitling their entry into the semi-final to meet the stalwarts, of Holyhead!. » Referee Miller, Chester, had charge of the game, and Mr J. H. Vincent Llandudno, and Mr Jack Roberts, Bangor, were the linesmen. The fol- lowing were the teams — Holyhead: Collier, goal; "Tiny" Conlan and W. H. Parry, baclqs,; Taylor, W. T. Jones and Ellis, halvesl; H. Roberts, J. Rowlands. F. Bogue, W. Brown aod H. Brown, forwards. Aberystwyth: R. Crowther, goal; F. Hem- ming and O. Green, backs; T. Reece, W. T. James; and J. W. Edwards, halves; R. Peake, D. E. Price, A. Jenkins, D. Hughes and L. Reece, forwards.. Aberystwyth, the dark green jerseyed men, won the toss, and played towards the town, goal with am advantage of a somewhat eros's: wind, and "Franoey" set the ball in motion shortly after 2.30 p.m., and amidst a hum of excite- ment from several quarters of the field. The opening exchanges at once proved how difficult it was to keep one's feet, and fouls;, some inten- tional and others accidental, were frequent. From a foul against the Harbourmen the ball was placed wide of Collier, and not long after- wards Ellis took a free kick, and Bogue.. with a fine try, shot behind. The work in smidfield was vary brusque, and some rattling exchanges were s,een, the Aber men settling down with more confidence in the fray than the Harbour- ites. The Aberiit es .gradually gained1 the upper hand and pressed- with some good n/.p-py foot- ball, and a .good shot, intended for the agiile Collier, was wide of its mark. A rush by the Holyhead men was smartly stemmed by Hem- ming, and again recovering, the Abe-rites placed the ball wide. A fine breakaway on the right by, Peake saw that player goirugat top ,speed uintal he over-ran it. The cools were great draw- backs to the players, but the Aber men managed to regain the ball on, sevexal ocoasi-ons, and Col- lier was, called upon- to negotiate a fine shot. From the clearance J. Rowlands got hold and made a grand run and forced a corner off the sturdy defenders of the Mid-Wales men. This was poorly taken-, and away galloned the Aber- ite-s, and Collier again had to clear another fine shot. At this stage the Aberites were far and away the most superio,r side, and1 they were also cleaner in their play than the Harbo urates. The latter gained a corner again, and from the ball's career W. T. Joines let fly a great drive which whizzed at terrific velocity over the, bar. When Parry had a chance, a little lajter, he also shot wide. < The busy men in green pepper,ed away with much skill and persistency with the result that Conllan and Parry were quite outwitted and out- mamouvTed. This was- proved when the forwards came down in splendid style, and the nimble Peake, from almost the corner place, centred beautifully and Jenkins met the ball and flash- ed it past Collier like lightning. Treme-ndbus cheers greeted this performance, and a fine ac- companiment of rattles made quite a din. Following this, the Aber men redoubled their energies, and the wily and clever W. T. Jones was doneby the nimble for- wards of Aber, and Collier was soon. handling again. From the clearance the HarbüuritlCls managed to work up towards Crowther; but when they got there they were weak in hOllit of him. Another onslaught by the Green men. saw Parry returning with a mighty punt. The Aber men were 'very quiick -on the ball, 'and tried to evade the man. Now and again pl-aye-ris- would fall into the pools with a splish, splosh, that was very aggravating. Ellis was not half so effective as I have seen, him, and it must be said e that be had a great wing to cope with. Peake cantered away to m-eet Parry, and after beiating- him, the Aber man fell, so that Parry easily put the ball out of play.

I Now occurred one of the brightest movements of the game in a splendid sequence of rapid passing movements in the forward line of the Aberites beating all before them, 'until Ellis tripped deliberately a forward- that had beaten him gamely. He was cautioned by the referee for such tactics. The free kick that erusued was a high shot that Collier got, and a nanrow squeak of his downfall was seen. Parry, when pressed, gave a corner, which proved of no advantage to the Aber men, and later Collier saved from all- other free kick. Then right from the stand, an- other spell of wonderfully clever passing, and smart football, was shewn, which again fOUlnd C,oin,lai-q and Parry beaten. Now Holyhead madfo some effort to get along, and a promising ad- vance towards Crowther was spoilt by the off- side rule infringement. The remaining portion of the half found Holyhead practically penmed in their own quarters. Half-time: Aberystwyth, 1 Holyhead, o. Players. linesmen, and referee were glad of the little respite from the wr-etched elements, so an adjournment of about five minutes' duration was made. On resuming, Aberystwyth at IIHlCe pressed,, and Conlan was defeated, and Collier busy working, until the Harbo-u rites got down a bit, and a free kick was awarded them, which Conlan took, but wais 'not successful, the kick ,,oi going out. From this point one of the smartest bit-s of play of the day was seen, and it was of the real cup tie order, -being full of excitement Collier holds a hot one from Austin Jenkins. '=:4:=- and trickiness. The left wing of the Aberites was forcing mattens, by some very classy play, and in this they were challenged by the Aag'le- sieaities, with the result that some fine dashing sport was seen. The Harbourites were beaten, and shots were, sent in to Collier that gave much anxiety to him. One rasper hit the post at the bottom with terrific force, and here luck fav- oured the Sir Foniites, for Collier was beaten to this world, and1 I think the class of play of the Aberites will be admitted by even my Sir Foil friends to be infinitely superior to that of the Islanders. The play at this juncture was so delightful to the spectator in .general that though the goal luckily escaped a downfall, the display of the Aber men came in for a round of cheers and a quick turn of the rattles. Not far some time, I should think, this season, have Parry and Conlan had such a busy time as that of Saturday. < < After this siege on Collier's- charge, Holyhead made a break away, but the defence of the Mid- Wales men was too go ''1d prevailed, and soon after this Parry was cautioned1. Another Sliege was: made on Collier, in which some mag- nificent work was shown on the left wing, dur- in'g which exoitement atgain ran high. Matters chainged when a burst was made towards Crow- ther, and the Angles-eaite.s -rained a corner through forcing that play. This was veirv badly placed on the ground behind the net. Ellis was conspicuous after this with worrying the out- side night man, Peake, and- his methods did not certainly look, to say the least, grand. A gro- tesque corner was gained off Parry, and in a few minutes Ellis gave one of his shots for which he is famous, at long ranige, and a splendid at- tempt was finely saved bv Crowther. Holyhead were now slightly improving, and it was pleas- ing to see some of the form expected, even on such a filthy ground. Crowther had to run out to save from- the Browns' efforts, and e-re the game was a few moments okk • 3 Holyhead men had come out of their shells, and Crowther was found some difficult work to do. One fitle attempt to lower his colours saw Crowither save at full length in the mud and at the expense of a corner. This was well taken, and produced another, from which, however, thte Sir Fonites could not score. The brothers' Hughie and \YilVi5- Bro-wn made game- on the left, until the ball was run out of play. There was no doubt- ing the fact of the improvement in the ranks of the Holyheadiians, who were now in the quarters of the Mid-Wales men. < < Up again came the Aberites with another fine sequence of passing ending with a past shot. Hands against Aberystwyth relieved matters; but the free kick was harmlessly wide of any ad- vantage:. Now was the turn of the Sir Fonites, and they caused an agreeable surprise by their play at this juncture, and a corner was gainted. This was cleared as far as "Tiny," who tried: a 'shot on his own. It was a grand attempt, and had. it -not been charged down, the possibiltieB are that it would have defeated' Crowther. An- other strong-shot of Holyhead went wide. WihÐn matters looked ominous for the Aberystwythians and in which they defended gamely, the Sir F6n- ite-s managed to draw level, and after this there was no denying the strain that Aber put on to gain the lead, during which -some splendid1 play was witnessed, but no further score was made, and the game resulted Holyhead, i Aberystwyth, 1. ABERYSTWYTH v. HOLYHEAD. [BY "SIR FON."] After many keen struggles by the above teams in the Welsh Amateur competition, both met for the first time at Bangor on Saturdays under wretched weather conditions.. Aberys- twyth had brought a large following, and with their toy instruments, went "rattling" their in apparent full confidence towardis the scene of battle. Owing to the wretched weather' Holyhead, in an unusual manner, were poorly represented, and to my mind were in a pessimis- tic mood. Maybe the unmannerly and threaten- ing taunts of their Bang-o-rian friends from the s'tation to the. ground slightly "terrorised" However, with the "expected" joint support of (Continued on Page 11.)
