Shots for Goal.


Shots for Goal. The Treherbert Athletic team must be getting used to it. They were defeated again on Saturday at Abercynon in spite of their war-cry. They always manage to get beaten, but always by a small margin, as on Saturday, the score being only one try to nil. This score came at the last minute of the game, and that in a very "soft" manner. There was something evidently wrong with the team, and they were, as they express it, "simply up the pole." We consider that they have retained this elevated position for some time now. When are they coming down? We hope they'll come speedily, regardless of the bumps." Johnny Thomas (Abbey) was quite in his old form against Barry on Saturday. His breaking through and fine spurts nearly gave Treherbert victory on more than one occasion during the last few minutes of the game. We should like. to see him retain this fine form for the remainder of the season, at any rate. --+-- Doubtless all Soccer footballers of South Wales will be delighted to learn of the. convalescence of Jack Ingram, the Mardy goalie. It will1 be remembered that Ingram sus- tained very serious injuries some time ago while following his employment, and was thus rendered hors-de-coinbat for this season. --+-- Unquestionably Mardy was hit very hard by thus losing so capable a. goal- keeper, and would be pleased to obtain his services yet a while between the posts. Though this is very unlikely this season, Ingram, in all probability, will be ahle t) safeguard the Mardy goal during the next season. Portli Reserves met Trehafod on Satur- day in a League encounter and defeated them by 2 goals to 1. Young Tom Evana did not long embrace the Trehafod senior team. He has now obtained his transfer back to Iiis first love, the Forth Reserves. Evans plays as well as ever, and is always a veritable danger before the goal mouth. Woods, of the Reserves, is a sturdy young full-back, and should develop into a first-class player. The Reserves are going it very strong for the Rhondda League medals, and are sure of wresting them from their rivals this season. Trehafod Juniors played Williamstown on Saturday at home, and defeated them very decisively, securing 3 goals to nil. It is 'somewhat strangfei that Williams- town can always give the Juniors a good match at Trehafod, though they seldom make much of a show at home. -+-- Ginger, their left wing, is an exceed- ingly dangerous player when in the vicinity of the goal. The Juniors were apparently well aware of this, for they watched and very successfully upset his strategy. Whatever may be said of Williajmstown's football skill, rough play is conspicuous among them by its absence, a fact not always true of the Juniors. --+-- Ted Reynolds, the right half for Tre- hafod, is fairly skilful in his position and shows good promise. --+-- Treorchy Old Boys, the team who has long thirsted for the blood of Cilfynydd Ex-Schoolboys (League champions)," quenched their thirst on Saturday by put- ting in an easy win. -+-- R. J. Duckworth1, Dumfries Street, Treorchy, has made a name for himself in the football focus" within recent years. Bob has been secretary and played in every position for Pentre United Soccer and Rugby teams, and is now the hero in the Treorchy Old boys "bunch." --+-- Will Jones, known in football quarters as "Will Lyon/' has a promising future. He plays at full-back for the Old Boys, Treorchy, and we learn that not a match has passed during this season without his adding the extras. -+-- Treorchy premiers were defeated at the hands of Penygraig on Saturday. Some- thing was out of order undoubtedly. Dai Elbow was hors de combat" perhaps.
