Football. BY "SPECTATOE." ASSOCIATION. On Saturday last the town team held their first trial before a small crowd. Several new faces were to be seen, notably Nash, late of Mardy; Gould, Bristol City; Hawkins, Southall, Port Talbot, and Ingram, goalkeeper from Mardy. Several crack players who were expected down for trial did not make then appearance. Local lads were there- fore requisitioned. The two elevens were under the captaincy of Alf Goodwin (Stripes) and Bradbury (Whites). The best five attackers were pitted against the best defence. Southall for the Stripes opened the score, giving Bowen no chance to save. He repeated this performance shortly afterwards, and it was plain that the defence of the Stripes was too safe to be penetrated. Bowell gave Chapman and Dan Jones many anxious moments. Trott, of Mardy, was tricky and fast, but the half-back opposing him was clearly out of condition. Hawkins was not as clever as of old, but his partner did not give him many chances. The Stripes finally ran out winners by 5 goals to nil. 0 0 u On Monday afternoon, before a disap- pointing gate, the Darians met the pick of the Monmouthsire League in a friend- ly encounter. A new goalie in Woodall was given a trial for Aberdare. In the first half the home team gave a good dis- play, Bradbury scoring 2 goals. The visitors were a speedy lot, and time after time threatened danger, but the home defence was not to be beaten. In the second half Bradbury added his third goal, and the visitors failing to respond were defeated by 3 goals to nil. i
BY "MUDDIED OAF." ASSOCIATION. > Trecynon Windsors A.F.C. On Saturday this team entertained the Cwmbach Crescents First Eleven in a friendly meeting. For Cwmbach ^res- cents were: Goal, A. Sweet; backs, Mor- gan Llovd & Edmund Williams: halves, Lot Williams, Tom 'Stosh' Richards, and George Matthews: forwards, Geoige Davies (captain), Sharpe, Jack Evans, Will Cur,irk, and Tom Edwards. Tre- cynou Windsors: Goal, W. Phillips; backs. Eddv Morgan and Tom J. Austin; halves, David Edwards, Frank Rich, and J. B James; forwards, Tom Rosser, Ed- win Snow (captain), Pittard, Harry Davies, and Tom Williams. 000 Cwmbach registered an early score I through George Davies, their skipper Tom Rosser concluded a clever movement for Trecvnon in scoring a goal. Two more goals for Cwmbach, and one for the homesters were negotiated before the in- terval. After the change of ends, Cwm- bach had matters their own way. Goals were further added by George Davies, Sharpe, Jack Evans, and Cunick. Final score- Cwmbach Crescents, 6 goaits; Tre- cynon Windsors, 2 goals. Cwmbach pos- sess a team this season who ought to take everything before them. In the person of George Davies, the clever outside right, the team possess a captain of no mean ability, whilst the half-back, division is simplv impregnable. Stosh Eichards, the local Wedlock, is an important factor in attack as in defensive work, .whilst Sharpe and Will Cunick are dauntless forwards. Mr Ernest H. Rees, the club's secretary, has been very active in secur- ing the finest talent for his club. With the inclusion of such good men as Freddy Lewis, Dan Jones, Tom Howells, Garden- er, Jack Phillips, Jim Davies, etc., the Trecynon Windsors will take some beat- ing. I trust the Windsors will not take this early reverse to heart. They will know now where to strengthen their weak- est departments. 000 Aberdare Territorials A.F.C.

A very suc- cessful trial match was played on Satur- day last at the Mountain Ash Athletic Grounds. The two sides were led by Messrs. A. Lovelock, the captain, and_ by Police Constable Dick Thomas, the vice- captain. An exciting struggle culmin- I ated in a win for the team captained by P.C. R,. Thomas by the score of a goal and 2 tries (11 points) to a goal (5 points). The scorers for the winners were Ivor Bevan, A. Jenkins, and Donovan (former- ly of Aberavon), with P.C. R. Thomas converting. Ted Griffiths scored the only I try for Lovelock's team with Mellish con- verting. > o <" Prominent amongst the scrummagers 1\ on both sides were P.C. Dick Thomas, Tom Shepherd, Lewis, George Caple, I P.C. E. Scott, Llewelyn, Bethel, and A. Jenkins. The two best half-backs that day were Jimmy Donovan and Griffiths. Osborne proved the better man of the I two full-backs. Of the three-quarters worthy mention must be made of A. Love- lock, the skipper; Mog Ashford. Ivor Bevan, Mellish, and Tiley. P.C. Dick Thomas proved himself as fit as a fiddle after his recent serious illness. o o o It would be advisable if the Mount Re- ¡ serves E.F.C. team were reorganised this season, as it would serve to supply the premier team with players in cases of j emergency. And what about the old j Mount Thursdays Rugger fifteen? | ABERAMAN FOOTBALL.
