Chirk were the visitors at Sparinglfield Park on Saturday in a (Combination fixture with Wigan Town. Gorman kicked off for the visi- tors. {Hughes tried to get the ball out to his right, but Walford intercepted, and, dribbling nicely, made play, but Roberts intervened just in time. Clever work by the home backs gave Duckworth and IWalford a chance, but the Chirk defence was hotly besieged. A corner kick to Bannister dropped right on the head of Atherton, but the centre-half headed wide. The visitors assumed an attacking position, and Hughes tried to feed his partner, but Bannister ran along the touch line in splendid style, get- ting across a grand centre, but Duckworth shot wildly over the bar. A corner followed to Ban- nister, who centred finely, hut Atherton just headed past the post. Clever combination by Walford, Duckworth, and Warner ended in the latter shooting into the side net. Chiefly through Gorman, the visitors beat the home half, and A Hughes shot twice in succession, but Maines was on the alert and fielded smartly. Williams was beaten by Tudor. Bannister and Duckworth had shots in quick succession, Jones saving very smartly. Culshaw placed his for- wards in front of Jones, and one of the defen- ders handled, with the result that Britnell beat Jones from the penalty. Bannister, Tudor, and Duckworth gave the visitors trouble, and Jones did well to clear. Duckworth scored a second, and Jones registered for Chirk. In the second half play was very even, neither side scoring. 00000 DRUID'S v. NANTWICH. Beautiful weather weather favoured this in- teresting Combination fixture at Ruabon on Saturday. After Nantwich had forced two un- productive corners, James dashed away, missing by inches. The Druids continued pressing, and William Butler registered cleverly after ten minutes. Nantwich improved, Foster and Thompson deserving success, but Westley saved brilliantly. The Druids subsequently mono- polised the play, Butter twice nearly beating Cotton. Again the Druids attacked, Cotton saving luckily from Jones. At half-time the JJruids were one point to the good. 00000 WELSH CiUfP SiEMI-FUNAL—A DRAW. Upwards of 3,000 people witnessed the match between Chester and Oswestry on Wrexham Racecourse on Saturday, one-third of whom came from Chester. The Cestrians had to face the wind and sun, and play at once became fast and furious. Newbound put in a smart run without avail, headed t I'eeley, and the ball bouncing off the .Chester custodian, Williams darted up and drove the leather into the net. This success fell to Oswestry within four minutes, and for a little time afterwards the Chester defence seemed paralysed. Oswestry appeared to overwhelm their opponents, and try as they would, Chester could not shake them off. Keeley had several warm shots to negoti- ate, and Richards once sent one whizzing over the bar. At length W Jones gave Riding pos- session with a promising field in front, but the latter, after making a brisk run, shot wide. "Wallace Jones, getting possession from a melee, netted the ball amid great cheering. A goal was awarded, though many Ostrians had feared the scorer was offside. Oswestry retaliated. After a struggle within Chester's penalty area, Newbound received on the touch line, and driv- ing obliquely, completely beat Keeley, the ball striking the upper part of the net. Riding gave the Salopian goalkeeper a rasping shot, which was well disposed of. Frorrt this to the end the score remained stationary, the final being two goals each. 00000 RfHYL YDCIS.

A GOOlD GAMSE AND A CLOSE FINilSCH When Bangor visit Rhyl a good game is an- ticipated and on Saturday a keen interest was manifested when the old rivals met under the auspices of the Combination. The visitors who were somewhat unfortunate in the early part of the season, have of late showed marked signs of improvement and on this occasion they were able to put on the field the strongest re- presentation that has turn out for them this season. Rhyl were also strongly represented and prompt to time the men faced each other as follows: -Bangor, goal, D. Jones; backs, Wil- liams and R Roberts half-backs, J Arridge, W Jones, and iD T Davies; forwards, Evans, Burns, J Williams, J Evans and Oliver. Rhyl: Goal, Blackburn; backs, Williams and Lloyd; half-backs, W Williams, E B Davies, and Vern- on Jones; forwards, Davies, Mathews, Shipton, Riley and T. Roberts THE GAME. Bangor started in real earnest and at once swooped down on the Rhyl goal, Lloyd, Davies and Williams clearing in turn. Oliver early on made some ugly rushes and Blackburn was called upon to handle. The Rhyl forwards did not settle down for some time, and in the early stages they were easily dispossessed of the ball. After the first ten minutes, however, they got going and the manipulating of the ball by those five forwards was at time delightful They attacked in line and Mathews neatly evaded the backs but when almost under the bar he shot over the bar to the chagrin of the specta- tors; a moment only had elapsed when from a lovely centre from the left Billy atoned for his previous failure and crashed the leather into the corner of the net. Then came a duel between Williame and Oliver in which the local man came out on top. Blackburn was called upon to handle from the right, while Evans sent wide The local forwards again got going and with deft footwork worked their way into the visiting territory where Jones was tested to the the full but he proved himself a worthy exponent. Ril. ey and Roberts were troublesome, and R Rob- erts in tackling T Roberts sustained an injury which necessitated his rdtirementfior a few minutes. Rhyl continued to have the best of matters and Davies and Mathews each had shies, and Shipton, who was in grand form, gave D Jones a stinger. The goalkeeper how- ever prevailed and when half time arrived the score stood Rhyl 1, Bangor nil. The second half opened in favour of Rhyl, and a beautiful corner by Williams caused Jones to clear. lpretty play by Shipton and Mathews returned 'the leather to within easy shooting, but iHwfa cleared with a huge kick, and soon after a foul against the samte player gave Rhyl a penalty. The kick was taken twice, but ClIathews made no mistake with either. Rhyl slackened somewhat after this, and Bangor, making, some of their characteristic rushes, scored, after which. the game hung in the bal- ance until time. was called with Rhyl winners by two goals to one.
