The Swifts earned a creditable victory orer Ban- gor on Saturday. The teams have met to many times this season that their doings are somewhat stale, but the crowd was of the usual dimensions, and indulged in some rare antics when their pets scored the four goals which won the match. Bangor somehow could not make any headway, and although the forwards came very near scoring once or twice, still at the close they had not got cne through, and thus suffered a rather heavy defeat. —o— Thislvictory of the Swifts should help the Rbyl Town Club to keep at the head ot the list, but the latter are by no means certain of carrying off the medals, and a lot depends upon the Amat-,urs-and Holywell. -0- The Amateurs failed to turn up at Carnarvon on Saturday, January 28th, but it seems there was a very good reason for this, the c!ubs having mutually agreed to postpone the fixture uutil the 12th inst., so as to kick-off at 3-15. WITTON ALBION AT RHYL. Judging by the attendance, the Town Club must have lost money on the visit of Witton Albion. The latter are a good te;.¡,m, and although they had not a full Rhyl team against them still they deserved to win by 2 goals to nil on thp duv's play. It was unfortunate to loose money and the game, but these big guarantee matches are not popular with the crowd, aud friendlies" seldom draw. -0- CJLWYN BAT DEFEAT THE AlIATEtjES II. The return match between the above teams took place at Belle Vue Athletic Grounds on Saturday before a small attendance. The local were verv mixed up, but a good game was witnessed, the result being a victory far the visitors by one goal to nil. -0- BANGOB RESERVES WIN. The replayed Welsh Junior Cup Tie between the Rhyl Town Reserves and Bangor Reserves, took place at Bangor. on Saturday, Jan, 28th, befcre a large crowd. The visitors played a plucky game all through, but the home lot bad all the luck and scored twice, winning by 2 goals to nil. Personally, I think the local lads should have woe the first time the teams met, aDd the present victory of Bangor is what might have been expected. -0- HOLYWELL V. BUCKLEY TOWN. Holywell having protested against the result of their cup tie with Buckley Town, cn account of ineligibilty of four of the latters players a special commission consisting of Messrs Berrie, Fairrinizton, and Marks, was appointed to sit at the West- minster Hotel, Chester, on Saturday, January 28th, and investigate the charges. Both clubs were represented, and after hearing the evidence, the comission declared the protest had been instanced, and awarded the tie to Holywell. Had the Rhyl Town officials been a little sharper when the team who were so badly defeated at Buckley, in their cup competition some time ago, the club would now very probably been figuring iD the semi-final tie. for I believe all the players protested against took part in the tie with Rhyl.
