RHYL v. ST. ASAPH. WELSH JUNIOR CUP FIRST ROUND. ANOTHER DEFEAT FOR ST. ASAPH. [BY PHILLIP II ] After being defeated some weeks back to the tune of 7 goals to one, in the North Wales Cup Com- petition, St. Asaph re-appeared at Victoria Park, last Saturday, to try conclusions with the locals in the Welsh and Border Counties Junior Cup Com- petition. The weather was dull, and the attendance very small. St. Asaph brought a strong team, whilst Rhyl played the same eleven that did service the previous Saturday against Holyhead Swifts, with the exception of Such, Griff Evans, and Davies, whose places were filled by W. J ones, Charlie Ellis, and David Jones. At 3.15, a quarter of an hour after the advertised time, Mc R. Her see lined the teams up in the following order RHYL: Goal, Ryles; backs, Nay smith and Davies; halves, Durcan, Ted Davies and Jim Jones; forwards, David Jones, Charlie Ellis, W. Jones, Mathews and Harries. ST AFIA H: Goal, T. Powell; backs, H. Pritohard and Llew Jones; halves, W. Lloyd, Phillip Evans and J. Lloyd; forwards, J. Jones, T. Jones, Durcao, <J. Jones and J. Pritchard. St. Asaph won the toss, and decided to kick up hill. Will Jones kicked off, and St. Asaph at once made for the Rhyl citadel, Davies clearing, Rhyl got away, and ere five minutes had elapsed David Jones had beaten Powell. This livened up the game somewhat, but so far as St. Asaph were concerned the improvement was only temporary, and ere long Charlie Ellis had scored the second point. Then for a few minutes the city men went strongly, Darcan pouncing on the ball shot out- side. From the kick-off the Rhyl forwards advanced on the left, but the movement cams to nothing. The visitors had a run down, but Smith returned, and the locals were again attacking. A free kick against Rhyl carried the play into midfield. Immediately afterwards Harries got possession and passed to Mathews, but he was ruled off -side. Following this, the visitors' right wing forced a corner from Davies, but the ball was prompt- ly put away by Ryles. The next moment Mathews made one of his runs, and dodging Pritchard, had no difficulty in scoring the third goal for Rhyl,, Powell having no chance whatever to save. The Rhyl lads kept up the attack,and completely bombar- ded the visitors goal. Hugh Pritchard at last gave 1 his side relief by sending outside. The homesters, however, returned to the attack, and Charlie Ellis, in the nick of time sent to David Jones, who banged the ball into the net for the fourth time. A brief visit by Duroan into the home ranks followed, only to be returned by Jim Jones sending in a capital shot which dropped in the goal mouth of the visitors. Hugh Pritchard was on the alert, and as the result of a foul against the same player within the twelve yards limit, Mr Hersee awarded a penalty, muoh to the amusement of A the spectators. Mathews was entrusted with the kick, but somehow or other he kicked the ground, with the result that Powell saved easily a tame shot which travelled along the ground. Shortly before the interval Charlie Ellis sent a warm handful to Powell, and in endeavouring to clear he was floored, Will Jones safely netting the ball. Leaving the result at HALF TMCB: Rbyl i goale St. Asaph 0 is The opening stages of the second half were not very interesting, the only thing of nota was a run by Duroan, and sending to 0. Jones the latter player was awarded a corner from Davies, which finished by the ball going outside. Shortly after- wards the cityites came again and kept plodding along determinedly, and their efforts were rewarded with an opening, Durcan making use of the op- portunity, netted the ball for the first time, unid loud cheering from the spectators. The game a fter this became a little more exciting, each end being visited in quick sucoession. David Jones got possession, racing away at top speed, sent across to Will Jones, who was brought up off-side. The free-kick gave relief, and the ball travelled to the other end. Here T. Jones sent the ball across the goal mouth, but Ryles ran out and cleared with a long kick. Later, Ted Davies failed to score from a penalty. Ibis incident, however, livened up Rbyl and they forced a corner, which proved fruitless. St. Asaph began to press, Durcan being conspicuous in front of goal, but he failed to beat the home custodian. Play was suddenly transferred to the other end, the home forwards swarming around Powell, and after a scrimmage in front of goal, Will Jones was given an opecing, and making no mistake he registered the sixth goal. The visitors had now a bit of the play, Ryles being called upon to save. Eventually, from a throw in Mathews got the ball and work- ing his way well in front, sent in a swift low shot which missed the post by inches. Durcan again got away, but was stopped short by Jim Jones, who sent to David Jone,, and he ran along with lighten- ing speed, sending in a splendid centre across the goal mouth which Harries failed to reach. From the kick-off play coutinued in the visitors goal, until Mathews met with an aacident, which resulted in the game being stopped for a short period. Give and take play followed up to the finish, the game ending with the FINAL RESULT:- Rhyl 6 goals St- AsaPh 1 „
