Following their unexpected victory at Wrexham last week, their first away from home, Birkenhead secured a fair attendance at Rockville. last Saturday afternoon for their first encounter with Rhyl in the Combination. Birkenhead commenced play down hill, with the breeze in their favour, and they soon forged ahead. They attacked on the left, and Chilton was illegally pushed near goal by Jack Jones, and Mr Nunnerley, Wrexham, promptly awarded a penalty. Banton easily scored, after five minutes' play. They continued to press, and the Rhyl goal had several narrow escapes, a miskick by Jones on one occassion just curling outside the post. Rhyl occasionally made incursions into the home territory, but the backs repulsed their efforts, Chapman only once having to run out to save. After about half-an-hours's play Cooper ran down on the right, and put in a beautiful centre, which Thomas turned to account. Seven minutes later Banton scored for Birkenhead from a penalty for hands, but as Rhyl dashed in he was ordered to re- take it. Jones then saved finely. Three minutes' later Cooper scored No. 3 with a grand, shot. The last stages of the game Rhyl, kicking down the in- cline, improved considerably, and before the call of time had scored two goals. 00000 DRUIDS DRAW. On Saturday, the Druids were at home to Nant- wich, but were only able to make a draw of two goals each. The supporters of the Druids are hop- ing they will make a better show against Whit- church in their third meeting in the Welsh Cup.- Connah's Quay had Chirk at home, and led at the interval by two goals, scored by O'Neil and Roberts. In the second half Roberts added a third goal for the Quay, and from a penalty Williams defeated Lloyd. The home side fully deserved their victory of three goals to one.—Crewe Alexandra met Chester at Crewe, before a small crowd. Smart play on both sides was witnessed in the opening stages, each goalkeeper being called upon. Scrambl- ing play followed until Lipsham broke away and ended up by shooting a fine goal. From a break- away Kniverton put across to H orton, who scored just before the interval, when the score was one each. On resuming Love Jones tested Kelly with a fine shot. Crewe were handicapped through hIv- ing only ten men, but nevertheless Chester deserved their victory 3-1. 00000 NORTH WALES COAST FOOTBALL LEAGUE. f' DIVISION 1.
