of matters, but Britnall delfended stubbornly for the hom-ieters. The visitors resorted to the one back game, one of the visiting defence being hurt. Half-time—Wigan Town, 1 Chester, 1. The game in the second half left nothing to be desired, each .team showing excellent football. There was no further scoring. 00000 CRiEWE ALEXANDRA v. TRAXMERE. This Combination match was played at the Alexandra Park on Saturday, before about 500 spectators. Tranmere won the toss, and Boyd was soon in evidence. Uninteresting play for fully twenty minutes, when Cope, taking a pass from Eden, (beat Ro.berts'on with a low shot. Tranmere took up th-e attack, and the Crewe halves experienced an anxious time. The homesters found the net again, but te.fore the finish the Rlovers rallied and reduced the margin. The final result read—Crewe, 2; Tranmere, 1. 00000 W'RiEXHAM v. WHITCHURCH. These teams met in an English cup-tie on the Wrexham Racecours.e on Saturday, before 1,400 spectators. The- start was disastrous for Wrexham, their best forward being badly in- jured through collision. A few minutes later Smith -had 'Whitchurch's goaol at his mercy, but he lifted too high. Wrexham returned to the attack, an'd from a nice pass lStockton received and centred beautifully, Griffiths meeting the •leather and banging it into the net. Later Whitchurch pressed, and when a goal seemed imminent Hesketh averted disaster by giving s corner. Hughes, the Wrexham right back, cleverly frustrated further efforts bv the vi-sitors. An exultant cheer at this stage greeted the re- appearance of lEytheway. Llew Davies judic- iously conceded Whitc-hurch another corner, which was got away. A similar advantage1 was granted Wrexham, and shortly afterwards the. Whitchurch custodian had half a dozen shots to Jlegctiate. Aifter a brief repulse Wrexham pressed with determination, and, after a stern struggle in the goalmouth, Bytheway received from Smith, and scored a second goal with a quick shot. Then Whitchurch were hostile, and Coventry brought off a good save. Five minutes before the interval By the way registered another goal with a brilliant shot. The visitors attacked, and forced a fruitless corner. l-Vtlf- time—Wrexham, 3 Whitchurch, nil. In the last half Whitchurch scored two goals, making the final score—Wrexham, 3; Whitchurch, 2. 00000 THE DEFEAT OF lHYL VICTORIA. The re-played tie for the Welsh Amateur Cup between Rihyl Victoria and Alold Town took place at Mold on Saturday. As anticipated the Vies were defeated. Thev were weak in defence and unfortunate in front of goal. On the other hand Mold were awarded no less than three penalties from each of which they scored. The homesters showed marked improvement on their own ground, and were value for the four to one victory they achieved. On the losing eide D W Jones and R Hughes were' the pick. 00000 The Vies' second string entertained Denbigh at Sisson Park, a tough game ending in favour of the homesters by two goals to one. 00000 N'êxt Saturday the Vics play Holywell United away in the first round of the Flintshire Chall- enge Cup, when the following team has been selected to represent them:—'Goal, M Hughes; full backs, C Foley and T W Ellis half-backs, R Hughes, J W EKis (captain), and E Mostyn forwards, E E Hughes, D W Jon.e's, R Hughes, T Glass, and T Harrison; linesman, Mr G C. Ia s 9. The second team play Rhuddlan Con- servatives at Rhyl in .the 2nd round of the North Wales Coa&t Junior Cup.

Kick-off, 3 p.m. 00000 RHYL CHURCH GUILD v. IUHDDLAX CONSERVATIVES. The above teams met at Belle Vue Athletic Grounds on Saturday, the Phoenix team having a good following. The game opened in favour of the homesters, who soon scored. The Rbuddlanites retaliated, and Mayo put the fin- ishing touch to Evans' effort. Then the' home- sters pressed, and the Rthuddlan goal had many narrow escapes. A long dropping shlot by R Jones was saved by Griffiths, but the referee pointed to the centre. Hard luck for Rhlldd- lan. The team's crossed over with the Guild leading by three goal6, to one. The opening of the second half was decidedly in favour of the- visitors, and for the first ten minutes they swarmed the citadel, R Roberts and Meredith doing excellent work 'Meredith ad.ded number two from a melee in front of the goal, and short- ly aftewards lost a glorious chance of making the scores equal. The Guild, who were grand in defence, gradually wore down their opponents, and before the end scored two more goals and won comfortably. I was rather disappointed with the visitors. They require a lot of prac- tice, and they would do well to drop a couple Or so at their old war horses. R Roberts was undoubtedly the most useful player on their side. [Meredith was the best forward, and Al- bert Barnett was fairly successful. The backs were poor, and the goalkeeper was not safe. The Guild is a well-balanced team, and quite deserved their victory. 00000 THE XOR!Tfir fWALES COAST LEAGUE GILE A XL) FIX TURE BOOK.
