----__-----RHYL and HOLYWELL…



FOOTBALL NOTES. Saturday last was a "day off" for the football enthusiasts, and taking advantage of the absence of play at Rhyl the supporters of the game patronised the cheap excursion train to Llandudno, where the international match between Wales and Ireland was decided. The attendance at that fixture was large, and the game of an exciting character. It is gratifying to know that Wales was able to beat Ireland by 2 goals to nil. The ball was actually placed in the net three times, but one goal was disallowed through being declared "off-side." The excitement at the result was naturally very great, aud the news of the victory of the Welsh team was hailed with delight at Rhyl, a telegram reaching here at about 5-30. In consequence of Birkenhead having a cup tie on March 10th, it was decided to play the Combination match on Saturday last. Rhyl sent a good team awa,. and they gave a splendid account of themselves, the game ending iu a draw, neither side scoring. The match was capitally contested, and the Rhyl goalkeeper again did well. The Birkenhead team were rather surprised that Rhyl should (have given them a drawn game on their own ground. The team seems to have a great liking for drawn games this season, and their record stands better than last year. Taking advantage of the in ternational match at Llandudno on Saturday, the Executive Committee of the North Wales Coast Football Association held a meeting in that town, Mr C W Berrie presiding. Bangor and Llandudno were ordered to replay their undecided semi- final tie in the Senior Cup Competition on Saturday next, Carnarvon being again selected as the neutral ground kick-off at 3-30. The final tie for the Junior Cup between Flint and Carnarvon was ordered to be played at Llan- rwst on March 24th, Mr Hersee, of Llandudno, to be referee. It was also resolved that the semi-final between Flint and Buckley in the Senior Co mpetition should be played not later than March 17th, either at Shotton or Con- nah's Quay, Mr Cope, of Crewe, being ap- pointed referee. A meeting of the committee of the Coast League was also held at Llandudno on Satur- day afternoon, Mr C W Berrie in the chair. Denbigh having written expressing their desire to withdraw from the League, it was resolved to accept the resignation subject to their ful- filling their engagements with Colwyn Bay and Holywell. Carnarvon having played ineli- gible men in their match at Llanrwst, two points were deducted from their score in the League table. On Saturday next at Belle Vue Athletic grounds, Llanrwst will meet Ruabon Albion in the semi-final of the Welsh Junior Cup.
