conditions, as it not only meant a loss in the exchequer, but also, marred the good exhibition of football that one would certainly have seen bad the elements been more propitious. There is a good interest taken, in football in Port Heli, and it needs fostering. The following were the respective teams:- Port Heli: Goal, Bob Williams, backs, James Ellis and Bob Pugh; halves, Rees Davies, Bob Ellis (captain), and Jimmy Jones (late of Llan- dudno Swifts, Bangor Combination, and Totten- ham Hotspur) forwards, R. S. Thompsoni, W. Griffith, G. Jones, John Jones, and W. C. Mor- ris. Llandudno: Goal, Owen Evan Hughes; backs, John Henry Jones and Harold Pearson; halves, Johnson, Georgie Davies, and W. S. Owen ("Settle") forwards, Bobbie Roberts, Clheetham, Johnnie Wilhams (captain), Milligan, and W. Stone. Referee Mr. F. E. Young, Port Heli. THE GAME. The home team's, colours are white jerseys and navy blue knickers, whilst those of Llandudno were the usual black and white vertical-.striped jersey and white knickers.The Stripes won the toss and elected to play with the wind and rain behind them, putting the home team to the dis- advantage of weathering these drawbacks in their efforts Ito get towards Owen Hughes. G. • r.s set the ball a-rolling about three o'clock, and Thompson, receiving a timely pass, made away on the right and gave Owen Hughes a warm one to clear thus early in the game. The Cormorants, however, awoke, and with the elements aiding them they sailed down the field, and Stone drew first blood amidst silence. Hardly had the surprise of the score been got over, than Llandudno, per Milligan, had again netted the ball. To be two down in so short a time looked ominous for Pwllheli, and fears be- gan to dawn upon the crowd that a very one- sided game was going to be seen. The two Llandudno goals were somewhat fluky. and not such as would arouse enthusiasm. Taking in the situation, the Pwllites cantered up the field ,and John Jones, securing when in a good position, swung a 'shot across the goal- mouth, which G. Joses caught on his head, and he steered it into the corner of the net out of 'Hughes' reach. The applause that greeted the performance was well deserved, and it was also the best goal of the three scored, and what is more meritorious, it was got against the wind. From the midfield kick Pwllheli, came up on the left, and J. H. Jones had ito check an invasion. Still pegging away, Morris swung across, and Thompson, who was; playing prettily on the out- side right position, failed to catch the sphere ere it rolled out of play. Jimmy (Conway) Jones fed the left wing of the homesters, and this was the prelude to an exciting siege on Hughes' .charge. The latter saved grandly from W. Griffiths a teaser, and a bully was enacted in the goalmouth, Jim Jones relieving the pres- sure by (shooting over the bar. Owen Hughes had soon again to exercise his defensive rights;, which he did well. Johnnib Williams hereabouts made one of his characteristic runs, worming through the oppoisi- tion. lfighit into the goalmouth, when Bob Wil- liams took the ball from him. Llandudno- now pressed and obtained a corner, which was got away, and the Pwllites changed matters by a spell of pressing, -and Hughes cleared. Down went the Amateurs, and Williams; nearly let the visitors in by fumbling. Cheetham was promin- ent, but w.as checked. The Pwllites now made matters hum a bit, Jack Jones playing well and effectively. Cheetham got hold, and was sail- inig well for the Bob Williams when a corner was forced off James Ellis. A fine centre froIIl the visitors' right was cleared, and up came Thompson in grand style, and he gave ? such a teaser that he had to give a corner the post to clear. Thompson took the corner kick, but placed it badly behind. Rees, after good work, dallied and was robbed, and Johll Jones-, tried his luck, and the score at half-tinle was Llandudno, 2; Pwllheli, 1. » < No time was; lost in .changing ends, and a milSlüicck by Georgie Davies was atoned for by a timely clearance by J. H. Jones. The PwlliWS, however, pressed, and from a oapiftal pass W. Griffiths equalised. Two more quick shots to Hughes were the next items of interest. lIe cleared, and put the second over the bar. The ensuing corner saw some good headwork by.tho Llandudno- defenders. A foul was given again Pwllheli for tripping 'Settle" when on the ru./ The ensuing free kick saw danger for Pwlliae> as a "spanking" attempt went just wide. own went the Pwllheli men, and between W. and G. Jones- they managed to defeat Hug and take the lead. Johnnie Williams, from a foul, sent in a shot, which v/as saved at the expense of a c° ner, and from- this Stone famed another, and the Llandudno men were sending in several shOlts that were charged down, and Bob Williams wa;9 lucky his citadel was left intact. After the pres. sure for the nonce on the Pwll goal, the ven'lle was changed, and -Charlie 'Morris managed defeat Hughes with ,a clinker. Llandudno W. to -retrieve, but Thompson scored -a fifth, was declared offside. A Johnnie Williams tried a run on his own, sent in a comparatively low shot at l-on-g It travelled at great speed, and a curl was up<J it, when Bob Williams put his right hand semaphore fashion, and managed to put it of danger. It was a fine shot and a and both deserved the applause bestowed.. corner availed Llandudno little, for the pwlhte were down at the other end, and afiter a sever pressure, in which was plenty of vigour. Jones, from good work by Bob Ellis, to make the quartette of goals -into a quint i and so good -old Pwllheli managed to de their afternoon's guests by the solid margi11 3 goals. Final: Pwllheli, 5 Llandudno, 2.
