Llandudno lbad to go to Newtown, and they were ignominously beaten by eix goals to one. —o— It was a stroke of good look for Rhyl to be drawn against Aberdare at Rbyl in the third round. Association is in its infancy in South Wales. Rugby has so firm a hold among the Southerners that the Association game is hardly given a chance. But Aberdare have endeavoured with praiseworthy pereisteuoe to popularise the dribbling code in this uncongenial soil. And they are succeeding. They are the principal exponents of the goune in the South. They are at the top of the Southern League, and scarcely know what defeat means. Moreover they are an enterprising club. Among the matches they have arranged for this season is one with Sheffield United, the champions of the English League, and another withthe Kaffirs. It is quite on the tapit that they will also arrange lor Rhyl to visit Aberdare, and teat the abilities of their team against their conquerors in the Welsh Cup Compatition in s match on their own ground. After the interesting encounter at Rhyl on Satur- day, a match at Aberdare would certainly be an atti action. --0- If another proof be needed of their enterprise and their keen enthusiasm for the game, it is in their courage in undertaking the inconvenience and expense of the long journey from Aberdare to Rhyl, in order to contest Rhyl's right to enter the fourth round. They left Aberdare at 3 o'clock on Friday, accompaniel by Mr Cameron (Chairman), Mr Tom Peck (Treasurer), and Mr Oaldecott (Secretary), and several supporters. They were accommodated at the Dudley Hotel, where Mr Hopkins made them as oomfortab e as could be desired. Several of the Rhyl supporters and players met them and spent a convivial evening. Next morning they perambulated the town and visited the different places of interest being ap- parently much charmed with our pretty town. It is to be regretted that the atmospheric con- ditions were such as to militate against a good gate, and all the more so because the visitors were at such great expense to come here. But having regard to the conditions, and to circumstanoes, there was quite an average attendance. The ground after the sudden thaw, was in a heavy and slippery condition, and greatly interferred with good play. Moreover there was a stiff wind blowing towards the Grange Road goal, which made it extremely awkward. When the Aberdare players stepped on the field they lookad a fine lot of men, and were undoubtedly physically stronger than the Rhyl men, many of whom were oomparitively dwarfs at their side. The heavy ground therefore suited the visitors better than it did Rhyl. Rhyl won the ton a nd elected to play with the wind and sun at their backs, and the slope in theirlfavonr, an advantage that was enormous. They at once oommenced to take up the running, and were busy around Coo ke, the Ex-Evertonian goalkeeper. He Bared three times in the first minute, and was kept continuously busy. At length Mathews beat him and drew first
