Football. Firit Division League matches last Saturday produced quite an unusual harvest of goals. In the nine games played no fewer than 42 were scored, and of these 30 were credited to home and 12 to visiting teams. Five home clubs gained the maximum pointH, and two were beaten, while the remaining two had to be content with a division of honours. o The results were as follows :— Blackburn Royers 3 Manchester City 1 Bury 7 Sheffield United 1 Sheffield Wednesday. 5 Everton 5 Alton Villa 4 Notts County 2 Middleabrough .IPreston North End ..I Sunderland 3 Derby County. 0 Newcastle United 3 Wolverhampton Wan 1 Small Heath 2 Notts Forest 0 Woolwich Arsenal 2 Stoke 1 • • In the Second Division Liverpool beat Burslem Port Vale 2-1, this constituting their tenth victory, which places them at the head of the list with twenty-two points. » « In the Combination Rhyl's encounter at Middle- wich last Saturday resulted in a pointless draw. Bangor had Oswestry all visitors, and this game also ended in a draw, each side scoring once. Charles Parry, the ex-Evertonian, gave a superb exhibition between the Oswestry uprights; and Arridge, another old Evertonian, once again turned out for Bangor. By their victory over Broughton, Chester have made their position at the head of the table still more secure. THE COMBINATION Results up to Saturday, November 12.

At half-time Rhyl were 5 goals in arrears. Their defeat would not have been so heavy but for the looso play of which their custodian was guilty. In the firllt round for the Welsh Amateur Cup Prestatyn gained an astonishing victory over Pwllheli by 10 goals to 0, at Pwllheli last Satur- day. The homesters had anticipated a "soft thing," but their opponents practically ran them off their feet and showed them no quarter through- out the game. The scores were 1) W Jones (3), Love Jones (3), (j Glass (2), Tellis Hughes and Whitelock (1 each). In the fourth qualifying round for the English Cup Wrexham beat Earlestown 20 and Stafford and the Druids drew 2-2. The Rhyl Combination team gave a ood account of themselves at Middlewich last Saturday, though they had to be content with dividing the spoihi. The game was of a bustling character and the defence on both sides was all that could be desired. ¥ At Rhuddlan last Saturday, Rhyl Church Guild beat the homesters by 4 goals to 1, M Hugh scoring three times and D Birch once. Caradoe: obtained Rbuddlan's solitary point.
