G Sheffield Wednesday 2 Played cn the ground of the club marked In the Second Division Liverpool were vic- torious over Bristol City by 3 goals to 1. The Combination games included a keen tussle at] Rhyl, under rather depressing con- ditions, with Broughton United, the result being a draw (1-1). By 2 goals to nil, last year's champions (Birkenhead) prevailed over Middlewich, the result being a fair reflex of the general character of the play. The leaders (Wrexham) were at home to Nantwich, and a tame game ended in another win for the pros- pective champions by 3 goals to nil. The Druids paid a visit to Whitchurch and won by 1-0, while Oswestry defeated Tranmere 2--1, and Chirk and Port Sunlight drew 1-1. THE COMBINATION Results up to Saturday, December 17.

Prestatyn opened the scoring, and leading all t, along they eventually won by 6 goals to 3. C, « Meanwhile Colwyn Bay and Chirk were try- ing conclusions in a Flintshire and Denbigh- shire Charity Cup tie at Colwyn Bay. Honours were easy at half-time (no score), but the visitors ultimately won by 3 goals to 1. & The only Flintshire match last Saturday in connection with the Welsh Amateur Cup competition (second round) was that at Buckley between Buckley and Flint. Up to half-time there was no score. In the second half, how- ever, the homesters asserted their supremacy to the extent of 3 goals to nil. The meeting of Rhyl and Broughton on the Grange Road ground last Saturday was the occasion for an interesting encounter, notwith- standing the inclemency of the weather. Rhyl started with the wind in their favour, but their efforts to score were well met by smart defen- sive work on the Broughton side. T Williams distinguished himself with an excellent attempt, which missed the desired mark by inches only. A dash on the Rhyl goal followed, but Jack Jones was "all there," and largely owing to his help the home forwards were soon on the aggressive again, T Roberts giving the visitors a fright with a shot which their custodian only just managed to save. At the next venture T Roberts came into collision with the defending goalkeeper, and at a critical moment hostilities had to be suspended for a few minutes. On restarting the visitors made a great effort to score, but the Rhyl halves, backs and goalee were more than equal to the task, the result being that the visitors were again thrown on the defensive. Back again, however, came the ball, and close upon half-time the Broughton centre scored the first goal with a splendid shot. .¿. After a very brief interval operations were resumed, the first noteworthylbit of play being a fine shot by H P Roberts, which was skil- fully handled by the Broughton stick-minder. A little later Broughton expeiienced hard lines," and were no less unlucky on subsequent occasions. Fair play to the Rhyl defenca, however, they worked hard to prevent any further scoring by their opponents. Getting the upper hand once more, the homesters gave the visitors another good taste of their attacking powers. H P Roberts made good use of a pass from the half-back line, and as the ball went swinging aoross the goal mouth it was beauti- fully met by T Roberts, who with a header made the score equal. This success had quite a stimulating effect upon the homesters, but operations came to an end before any more damage was done at either end, a well-contested game resulting in a draw—Rhyl 1, Broughton 1.
