Football. --+-- RUGBY. KEIGHLEY 20pts., TREHERBERT 3. The Treherbert (N.U.) Team left Tre- herbert late on Friday night, and after a short stay at Manchester, arri^d at Keighley only a few hours before the kick-off. Rain fell in torrents and the ground was sodden. Less than a thou- sand spectators witnessed the start. The Keighley forwards were vastly superior to the Welsh pack. They gained posses- sion three times out of every four, but on account of the slippery state of both ground and ball, the home backs did not make extraordinary headway. Round after round of passing by Keighley broke down on the Treherbert line, and rr. Edwards relieved the pressure through a mark. The same player was again pro- minent directly afterwards in preventing Craven from scoring, by squeezing him into touch in the corner. Treherbert were penalised, and Gunn (an exr-Tre- herbert Amateur player) opened the scoring by dropping a goal. Keighley still attacked, and the visitors defended well for a time. Jagger scored under the posts, and Craven converted. From good passing among the ..backs, the homesters scored again through Jagger, Craven con- verting. Alf. Francis made a brilliant run for Treherbert, which nlaced Keighley on the defensive. The visitors set up a hot attack at this stage. Gunn played a safe game, and eventually Treherbert were repulsed. Narey scored an uncon- verted try for the Northmen just before the interval. Treherbert improved wonderfully on resuming play. They took up the aggres- sive, but failed to cross. Eventually Keighley asserted their superiority, and Winterburn scored a try for them, which Craven improved upon. The Welshmen again returned to the attack, but they made the fatal mistake of kicking when good passing would have done better for them. They came off nicely at last in a brilliant round of typical Welsh passing, and Wat Evans scored in the corner. Dingley failed to convert. Francis was the best of the Treherbert quartet, though D. H. Edwards played a tricky game. Johnny Williams, at half, worked the scrums well. He was very nippy, but not robust and burly enough. CHARITY MATCH. At Treherbert on Monday, a charity match was played on the local Northern Union Grounds. The two opposing teams should have been the Committees of Hopkinstown and Treherbert Athletic Rugby football teams. The Hopkinstown Committee, however, did not arrive until more than an hour after the advertised start. In order not to disappoint the spectators, the Treherbert Ex-Schoolboys turned out to give the Athletic's Com- mittee a game. Mr. W. Gamlin, W.F.U. (founder of Old Boys' League), Ponty- pridd, held the whistle. The proceeds were in aid of certain Treherbert players who have lost work through injuries in matches this season. A large number of tickets were sold, and the large crowd that witnessed the game was provided with a good exhibition of football. After the match, the Treherbert Committee gave a reception to the now arrived Hopkinstown team at the headquarters (Dunraven Hotel), followed by a short musical programme.
ASSOCIATION. TON 3gls., CWMPARC & TREORCHY UNITED 1. This £ i friendly between the old Rhondda Soccer rivals should have been played on Saturday last, but a tremen- dous storm of wind and rain at the time of kick-off necessitated its postponement until Monday afternoon. A gate of R,50 assembled to see the Southern and Wes- tern Leaguers break the United's ground record. Play in the opening stages was very vigorous, but lacking in science, and a. doubtful nenalty against Mitchell gave Ton the lead early on. Cwmparc's usual ill-luck against Ton was soon in evidence, for Goode, their sterling full-back, was fouled by Davies and was carried off the field, not to reappear. The Park forwards attacked hotly, and Peake, rounding Hughie Williams prettily, equalised the scores. In the second half, playing at a dis- advantage, the Cwmparc men defended heroically, and Thomaii and Peake got away on several occasions. Fyfe, from a difficult angle, beat Harry Jones, and a minute later Jack Evans almost made matters level with a terrific shot. Just before time. Davies made the most of a centre which J.,Parton just failed to get at, and Ton proved finally victorious by 3-1. The homesters had bad luck to lose Goode practically throughout the game, as his strong defence would probably have turned the issue. BLAENRHONDDA 2gls., YNYSWEN ROVERS 2. A guarantee match- between these two teams was Dlayed on Saturday at Blaen- rhondda. Stormy weather prevailed and the ground was sodden. Both teams are entered in the Third Division of the South Wales League, but this match was only a friendly." There was no evidence of good combination on either side; Blaenrhondda, especially, have a great deal to learn in this respect. It will be much to their advantage when they learn to adoot other methods than the kick and rush." Ynyswen was the better side, but they were lucky to make a draw of the game. 'tneir first goal was scored by Rose (centre forward) from a penalty, whilst the second goal, which saved the game for th was scored by a Blaen- rhondda phr >fjVho put through his own goal. John Aiftiiiis (left half) played a good defensive game for Ynyswen. Play was rather rough at times. YNYSHIR CRESCENTS 2gls., MARDY ROVERS 1. At Ynyshir. Mardy started before a good crowd, and soon forced several corners, which were smartly cleared by Williams, the Crescents' goalie, and from a breakaway by the Crescents' forwards the visiting goalie conceded a corner, from which Roberts headed a fine goal. Splendid work by the Ynyshir backs again put their forwards in motion, shot after shot being sent in but the Mardy goalie saved splendidly. The Crescents were, however, not to be denied. Rich- ards, receiving a nice pass from Morgans, scored with a splendid shot. Half-time now arrived with the Crescents leading by two goals. On the restart, the Mardy boys kept up a persistent attack on the Ynyshir goal, but fine work by the Ynyshir backs kept them at bay, and again the vi |ting goalie saved finely from iiichards, who was the finest forward on the field. Mardy scored a simple goal, the ball going in off Marshfield. This ended the scoring, although the Crescents tried hard to in- crease their lead. For the Crescents Richards played a fine game, and coupled with the visiting goalie, were the bel t players on the field. LEWIS MERTHYR JUNIORS led., ABERDARE RESERVES 1. The ve League match was played at the Tre Football Field on Saturday, before a fair crowd of spectators. Both teams being well represented, a good game was anticipated. Anticipations were. however, not realised, for the un- favourable condition of the elements and of the field rendered good play an utter impossibility. After three-quarters of an hour of mediocre football, during which time both teams had scored one goal each, the referee intervened and stopped the match, owing to the continued inclemency of the weather.
Shots for Goal. Ton's game with Cwmparc on Saturday was again postponed owing to the state of the elements. On Monday, the match came off at Cwmparc, and Ton was vic- torious. The going under of Cwmparc to Ton meant ground record gone. 'Twas ever thus." Cwmparc were unfortunate in losing Goode about ten minutes after the start, but Ton were too good even when Goode was present. The game opened roughly, but, thanks to Referee Batty, the offenders were soon pulled up. Fyfe's goal was a beauty. Billy will certainly prove a most useful right wing. Hugh Williams kept Peake, the inter- national, well in check throughout the game. Ton's new centre forward, Hedley, of Newcastle-on-Tyne, made his debut on Monday against Cwmparc. He showed fairly good form, but the ground was against him. He cannot, therefore, very well be judged on his first appearance. He should prove an acquisition in the ranks of the Reds. Percival played up to his reputation in goal. Treherb&rt Ex-Schoolboys visited Blaen- clydach on Saturday to fulfil a League engagement with Cambrian Lads Reserves. The game proceeded without a score for about ten minutes then it was decided to postpone the match owing to the un- favourable weather conditions. In travelling to Keighley on Saturday, the baggage of the Treherbert Northern Team went astray. The secretary, Mr. H. R. Jones, fol- lowed on, and recognised it at Leeds. He r managed to board an express train, which carried him back to Keighley in good time for the match. It is killing work for the Treherbert players to travel such long distances up North and to play such hard games after the tiresome journey. The effects of the tedious overnight journey was plainly seen in the play of the Welshmen at Keighley on Saturday, and, in consequence, the Northmen had little difficulty in piling up their large score.
