Rbyl Bid Adieu to the Welsb Trophy. Chester were eminently successful at Belle Vue Ground on Saturday, scoring six goals to two-the biggest score they have ever piled up against the locals on their own midden. It was a curious game, due in a large measure to the climatic conditions. A strong wind was blowing which played all manner of prancs with the ball. The homesters had the advan' tage of this in the opening half, and although they had much more of the game than their antagonists they failed to seize their oppor- tunities with the result that when half-time arrived they were only one goal ahead when they might have been four at least. At any rate they restarted in good style, and for fully fifteen minutes they were the best team, giving t the Chester defence no end of trouble. A long shot^from Graham which entered the net through Smith's legs altered the aspect of the game; and Khyl never looked up. The Cestrians did almost all the attacking and shot with accuracy and power and in the end were victorious by six goals to two. Perhaps the most noticeable and certainly the most effec- tive and polished player was the old Rhylite- W Matthews. His work was the work of a master, and the ease with which held the left wing in check stamps him as a great player The Chester backs were also good, and the goalkeeper, who was making his debut with them, gave a capital exhibition. The forwards were all good, with Graham perhaps the pick Lipsham, however, despite the close attention paid him by W Williams, got in several good shots. On Rhyl's side Smith made one or two costly mistakes, aud this fact upset him for he was never safe after the second goal was scored. Nito Roberts was the best of the backs, and played well in the closing half. Carter was good with his head, but he is not my idea of a full back. A Roberts was good and bad by turn, and Gal Morris has certainly played better. Hampson was good when he bad the chance, but those were few. Bertie Jones and Norman were overshadowed by Matthews- Frost was not so successful as usual. D Hugbes was in fair form. T Hsrri- son was sorely missed, and Rhyl were defeated by a better team on the day's play. « » a Brymbo Defeated at Home. Owing to the Weleb Cup Competition only! wo Combination matches were played on Saturday. Horace Blew again turned out for Brymbo, the new Club, who, however, were beaten 2-0 at home by Middlewich. The homesters were weakly represented owing to the club having also a cup-tie on.—Saltney overcame Oswestry by 3-1. In the cup-tie a big crowd saw the Druids oust their old rivals, Chirk by 4-0. [°!
