ASSOCIATION. RHONDDA PUPIL TEACHERS lgl., CLYDACH VALE 1. These teams met for the, second time this season at Clydach Vale last Satur- day. Clydach were victorious in the first encounter by 4 goals to nil. On Satur- day the home team was at full strength, whilst the Teachers were compelled to play two reserves. In the first half, Clydach pressed for two-thirds of the time, but by good back play and the stealing defence of the P. T.' s goalie, the. homesters were pre- vented from scoring. The P.T.'s made several invasions into their opponents' territory, but they were unable to ore, Three of the Teachers were unable to endure the intense cold, and they had to leave the field. Yet, with only eight players in the second half, the. P.T."s held their own in a plucky fashion which el delighted the spectators. H. Williams scored for Clydach Vale after a good com- bined rush. The Teachers were not long in equalising. T. Llewellyn and W. Lewis rushed away and caught the Valians' defence napping, and a goal was scored. The home team strove its hardest to obtain the winning point after this, but were foiled, T. R., Owen, Rees Jones and A. Hanney were towers of strength for the visitors, whilst the right back and inside left were the best men on the opposing side. ST. CYNON RESERVES 3gls., PEN- RHIWFER ALBIONS 1. Played on the Hospital Field, Llwyny- pia. St. Cynon's won the toss, and the j visitors kicked off against the wind. From the start the Albions forwards rushed up the field, but were repulsed by J. Lim- brick, who cleared in fine style. Play hovered in mid-field for a while, then the home line got into motion, forcing a comer. Nothing resulted from the kick and the visitors rushed to the home goal. From a melee in front of the goal the ball was put through, thus putting Pen- rhiwfer one up. From the restart D. Collyer took the ball up the field, but shot wide. It was now that the home- sters seemed to wake up, and were given a free-kick close in. J. Limbrick took the kick and sent in a good shot, which the visiting goalie punched out. The ball coming to Collyer, he shot with great precision and force, putting matters level. Again the Reserves got into motion and quickly forced a corner, but V. Hampton kicked outside. The Albions' goalie fumbled the goal kick, and Collyer rush- ing up, put the ball through. The St. Cynon Reserves were now having the best of the game, and Dicky "Darran" was j in his element. In the last minute of the game, Collyer again scored with a grand shot. The pick of the Reserves were H. Prichard (who seemed to be having a day out), J. Limbrick and Alf. Colwell. Of the halves, special mention must be made of A. Kneath, who played a really great game. D. Collyer, Dicky Darran," and V. Hampton were the pick of the for- wards. PENTRE THURSDAY JUNIORS 2gls., ABERDARE JUNIORS 1. Played at Aberdare, before a fair crowd. The first half was evenly contested, both sides attacking in turn, but no score was registered. The second half was, how- ltver, in favour of the visitors. Their forwards played a combination game, and beat the defence, Herring scoring. Mat- ters were a little even after this, and Evans, the right wing, equalised for the homesters. The visitors then took up the aggressive, and Lewis scored with a fine shot. Play became very exciting in the last few minutes. The visitors were all over" the home team, but failed to score. The final whistle blew with the score, in favour of the visitors. This was Aberdare's first defeat at home for two years. CWMPARC & TREORCHY UNITED 2gls., TREHARRIS 2, The meeting of these two clubs at Cwm- parc on Thursday last in the third round of the South Wales Cup was the match of the season in the Rhondda, as the visitors came with an unbeaten certifi- cate. A large crowd lined the ropes, but although the weather was fine, the ground was heavy in parts after the recent rains. The visitors fielded their strongest eleven, but the homesters were without Dicky Jones, who has not yet recovered from his injury. v Cwmparc kicked off and play operated on the right wing, Smart finally clearing. Treharris got away, and a mistake, by Part-on allowed Barlow to send across the Park goal. A melee followed, in which Jack Hushes unintentionally handled. The visitors obtained a lead from the penalty which was taken by Bailiff. This was hard lines on the homesters, but they played up with zeal, and the Treharris defenders had plenty of work. After a spell of attack, Peake and Hayman got dangerous, and! the Ihtter beat Bailiff with a splendid effort. Treharris again overran the home defence, in spite of bril- liant work by Jack Hughes, and Abley scored with a soft shot. the score at the interval favouring the visitors by 2-1, although Cwmparc had been aggressive for the most part. After lemons," the United were again superior, and Peake equalised the scores after a brilliant dribble past Smart. The same player had previously had the ex- treme misfortune to be fouled when about to shoot an easy goal after a clever run, but the referee unaccountably did not: penalise. The Rhondda men fully deserved a win on DO in is." as they were much superior, especially in attack. The replay takes place at Treharris next Saturday, and if the Park men "lay with confidence, they are sure to at least hold their own. PORTH JUNIORS 2gls. LLWYNYPIA RESERVES 1. This match was played upon the Part- ridge Ground last Saturday, in ideal foot- ball weather, before a. good number of spectators. As will be seen from the score, the Reserves experienced a defeat, which is a very rare thing for them. The Crescents had no engagement for last Saturday, but they obtained a signal victory over the Cynons the previous week by scoring 5 goals to the Cvnons' nil. FERNDALE ALL BLACKS v. CWM- PARC CRESCENTS. The All Blacks are going very strong at present in their League encounters. They have, not suffered a defeat since the early part of November. The above match was supoosed to have been played at the Darran Grounds, but to the homesters' disappointment, a telegram was received stating that the Crescents were unable to raise an eleven, thus the All Blacks suf- fered the loss of a, bumping gate. TON lgl., BARRY 0. These teams met on the Ynys, in cold bracing weather, in the third round of the South Wales Cup competition, before a good number of spectators. The hard n'ozeix zro-und rendered good footbaii out of the question. Ton thoroughly deserveci their win and lost several opportunities. In the initial half the homesters were I chiefly on the aggressive, but the visiting backs, Bilson and Prince, kept up a fine defence. After a while, Curtis came very nearly doing the trick for Ton. The home I forwards played up well, their only fault being the extraordinary poor shooting right in front of the goal. The penalty awarded Ton was taken by Russell, whose shot Sound its mark. After the interval, play became very tame and lacked spirit. Play of a give- and-take nature was the order, and Barry made desperate efforts to equalise, but all proved futile. Jack Jones and Russell at-back were of great service to their side. Both are powerful kicks. Given a softer ground,, Ton doubtless would have piled up a larger score,
