WELSH AMATEUR CUP. LLANDUDNO AMATEURS v. HOLY- HEAD. This match was played on Thursday, and re- sulted in a victory for the Amateurs by 2 goals to nil. Holyhead have been given the quietus in the Welsh Amateur Cup, and Llandudno's ill-luck in all their cup-ties of this season has been singularly unfortunate. However, it is gratifying, from a Llandudno point of view, at any rate, to know that there is now at least a probability of Llandudno gaining a financial benefit in their coming engagement, in the fourth, round, with the good old Canaries of Carnarvon. The Seal arks met more than their match in the nippy, small team that did duty on this occasion for the 'Chers. There are a (plucky lot. All praise to them. It was a verit- able surprise to the stalwarts of Holyhead, and particularly to clever Collier. It was very praiseworthy of the Llandudno* management to let the same team that drew at Holyhead play the Scalarks at Llandudno; There are some ex- cellent young Cormorants therein. The Ama- teurs were entertained to tea at the Avondale Restaurant, by ML J. H. Vincent, Chairman of the Llandudno Club, after the' match. The draw for the fourth round of the Welsh Amateur Cup has resulted as follows:- Llandudno Amateurs v. Carnarvon. Oak Alyn Rovers v. Buckley Rangers. Rhos or Bala v. Summerhilf. Aberystwyth v. Llanidloes. Matches to be played on Februarv 27th; kick- off 3-30.

COAST SENIOR LEAGUE. LLANDUDNO AMATEURS v PWLLHELI. I A MUCH-NEEDED TWO- POINTS FOR THE CORMORANTS. (BY "VIGILANT.") Llandudno has lost all its away League matches this season, and wÜln all its home ones. The five away matches have been very stiff ones., including Holyhead, Carnarvon, Bangor, Beaumaris, and Denbigh, and they have yet to journey to Pwllheli, Conway, Llanrwst, Colwyn Bay, and Festiniog. It may be said that they have played their stiffest tussles, and the Cor- morants hope to occupy by the end of the sea- son a respectable position in the League table. Pwllheli has not being doing so well of late. Although the players have given a good display of Soccer, they have been: uil,fortunate in not winning. To lose to Conway at home on the previous Saturday was a bitter pill to the Pen- guins, as it was their first home defeat in the League tourney. They are a nice side, and play a good game. They have very fleet forwards, and their work at times is distinctly pretty. They came to Llandudno on Saturday with no small hopes of winning, and at times their dis- play was excellent, but the forwards, were weak in front of goal. Llandudno turned out the same team, with one exception, Claude Zaloudek Davies vice Jimmy Williams (who could not get off), as beat the Sealarks of Holyhe.id on the Thursday pre- vious. That team is a very good one, com- posed of many light weights, and that they were able to vanquish Pwllheli by two goals to nil speaks well for them. Pwllheli were minus several of their usual players. The following were the sides:- Llandudno: Bob Lunt, goal; John Henry Jones and Harold Pearson (captain), backs; W. Edwards, Georgie Davies, and W. S. Owen (" Settle "), halves; Davie Williams, Jack Brown, Brookes-Evans, F.ranik Roberts, and 'Claude Zaloudek Davies, forwards. Pwllheli Sam Roberts, goal; Arthur Hughes and Bob Pughe, backs; Will Thomas, Bob Ellis (captain), and Rees Davies, halves; R. D. Ro- berts, Moseley Jones, Owen Jones, J. Williams, amd Ben Evans, forwards. Several of these were members of the once-crack Portmadoc team. Mr. Cledwyn O. Jones, of Bangor, was the referee, and made a favourable impression upon the spectators. < < There was a very fair gate. A strong breeze blew from the north angle down the field of play, and it was an advantage to the winner of the toss to have a particular end to choose. Harold Pearson was successful in this, and played with the breeze behind his boys, towards the Llanrhos goal. Owen Jones commenced operations, and it was some time before the 'Chers could get a good hold of the ball. The Penguins opened out promisingly. At length, the Cormorants managed to gain some advan- tage, and Claule on the left and Davie on the right, were working well. From excellent work on the left wing, where Claude and Frank Ro- berts were shining, a sweeping centre came across the goalmouth, 2nd Jack Brown man- aged to defeat Sam Roberts, after he had once saved. The success of the homesters was greeted with cheers. The Penguins bucked up after this, and were working splendidly towards Lunt, who was soon seen busy at work. The play of the Penguins was such that omened danger to the homester;, the right wing, Roberts and Moseley Jones being very effective in their work. Two corners, however, were soon gained by Llandudno, who had changed the venue. The Cormorants were having the best of matters just now, and so hard pressed were the Pen- guins that a penalty was awarded the homesters. John Henry Jones took the kick, but shot right into Sam Roberts's hands. The ball was not cleared very far away, however, and coming nicely to the toe of Jack Brown, he scored the second goal amidst much cheering. This was a staggerer to Pwllheli, and they played a plucky game. The game saw several cases of very hard lines close in the goal, but the ball was either charged down or well cleared by smart tactics. j There were also some very bad examples of shooting on both sides. And some teasers were also sent in that were well repulsed. Half-time arrived with the scoic Llandudno, 2; Pwllheli, o. Pwllheli had battled well with the wind against them. Now they had the advantage of it. The Tight wing of the Penguins indulged in some very pretty work, and Owen Jones was ever o.n the alert for a good opening. Tihe Pen- guins pressed awhile, and had some narrow shaves. Then D. Williams essayed a solo run down the right for Llandudno, and completely outpacing his opponents, slammed across the goalmo'uth a magnificent grounder at great pace. The other forwards divined what would happen, and Brookes-Evans was observed to use his left foot to steer the ball in the net. But oh! he put it wide of the mark, to the intense disap- pointment of the home supporters and to the evident joy of Sam Roberts. Then some pretty play was indulged in by the visiting front rank, but they could not score. < There was once a glimpse of excellent com- bination among the Penguin forwards—it was something a la Portmadoc team in its palmy days. The Penguins are adepts at this, and lack the style of cup-tie play. One or two da she's up against the breeze saw Claude Davies lob the baU at full speed across into the centre, and danger was in the goal zone. However, nothing further was scored, and the final was: Llandudno^ 2; Pwllheli, o. < NOTES. The wind marred a good exhibition bedng given. The home team were perhaps somewhat stale after being engaged in two heavy matches with Holyhead previous to meeting the Pen- guins. However, on the whole, they did very well, and captured a very much-needed brace of points. Claude Zaloudek Davies justified his inclusion in the team, and has a good idea of forward play. He also parts with the ball at once, and thus the play is brighter and faster. Frank Roberts was good, but Brookes-Evans was not in form at all. He does not forge ahead as he should do as a pivot. Jack Brown was ex- cellent, and his colleague., little Davie, was the star of the front rank. W. Edwards was capital as right half, and so was Settle as left half, but Gloor.gie Davies seemed as though he was having a day off. Both J. H. Jones and H. Pearson were immense in the back department, and Lunt, though gingerly in the commence- ment, waxed brilliant later on. » < As to the Penguins, I cannot blame Sam Ro- berts for the two shots that passed him, and he made some clever saves. Arthur Hughes and Bob Pughe were a good 12air of defenders. Rees Davie was inclined to be shady 111 his tactics. Bob Ellis worked as usual, like a veritable Trojan. Will Thomas was excellent worker. R. D. Roberts and Moseley Jones were the pick of the forwards. Owen Jones was a good pivot, and Ben Evans and J„ Williams a fair left wing.
CONWAY v. LLANRWST. BLUES' FOURTH SUCCESSIVE WIN. (By RAAIBLER.i The Blues captured another couple of paints on Saturday, their latest victims being Llanrwst. < After their brilliant play at Pwllheli on the previous Saturday, the executive decided to make no change in the eleven. I was glad to lee the Conway left back, amongst those who witnessed the game after his recent ill- ness. By the way, the iPwllheli match was only the second missed by Ellis for the last four seasons. A cross wind spoilt Saturday's game, and chancels were missed by both teams. Promptly to time, Mir. Slater lined up the players before a fair gate. Llanrwst: Finchett, goal; W. Owen and W. Trevor Jones, backs; Walter Loivell, R. D. Richards, and Salisbury Roberts, halves; David Jones, A. Carter, Arthur Richards, W. A. Wil- liams, and Stephen Hughes, forwards. Corn way: Llew Parry, goal; Bob Owen and Tom Jones, backs T. Thompson, T. Johnson, aucl Arthur Owen, halves; Craven, Atherton, Sam Parry, George Breeze, and Stone, forwards. The visiting !skipper, after winning the toss, defeinded the river goal, and Sam Parry started the ball for the Blues, passing out to the left, where Stone drove in a terrific grounder. Fin- chett picked up and threw out of danger, only to see the sphere turned by George Breeze a trifle wide of the mark. From the goal kick, the Roosters went off on. the right, good work by Jones and Carter was witnessed, and the latter was making .straight for Llew, when Arthur Owen dashed up, putting out. Craven cantered away, dodging Trevor, and was making his lway for Finchett, when Tom was unex- pectedly held by R. D. Richards, who gave a corner. Bob Owen placed the flag kick right into 'goal, and desperate efforts by the Conway- ites to open the score were unsuccessful. Two more fruitless corners fell to the home- sters, then the venue was changed, and Llew Parry had a sudden shock when a terrific shot came crashing against the crossbar, and rebounded into midfield. Short passing move- ments by Sam Parry, Atherton, and Craven carried the ball Finchettwards, and a most de- serving attempt wa-. made by Tommy. Atherton to lower Jones' colours, but the big custodian picked the ball up and threw clear, as Atherton came flying mto thp net. Conway were now most persistent in their attacks, the forwards being fed to a nicety by the halves. Two ter- rific drives by Stone went flying over the bar, then another poor attempt by Sam Parry in front of Finchett brought about cries of Let's have some goals." Stone was racing towards the goal with Lovell at his heels, when the whistle soiunded for half-time. ,Conway, o Llanrwst, o. < When the homesters returned to the arena, some changes were seen in the positions. Bob Owen was in his old position, whilst the right back was Johnson. Llew Parry kicked clear from D. Jones, and the home front rank went away gaily, Sam .Parry opening the score. Naturally there were loud cheers, and after once having found the net there was no holding the Blues, and Craven, Sam Parry, Breeze, as well as Atherton, rained shots at Finchett, but he kept his charge intact. Stone now had a splen- did opening, but he allowed Lovell to take the ball, and Carter gained possession. When he was racing along at top speed, Arthur Owen came rushing up, and charged both Carter and the ball over the touchline. The free kick al- most cost Arthur a goal, for Trevor planted the ball into the goalmouth, Llew clearing with the utmost difficulty. The homesters again got going on the right, Craven .sending in an ac- curate centre, which Sam Parry promptly netted. The BiLues had now got into their stride and try as the visitors would they could not drive them out. After a weak clearance by Finchett, Atherton added a third, and it looked as if the Game-birds were in for a severe defeat. Another goal was thrown away by Stone, for from a free kick against R. D., Will got an open goal, but owing to cries of offside he kicked the ball behind. However, he made amends soon after by scoring a fourth point for his side. What a pity that Stcne cannot put more keen- mess into his play. Close on time the visitors made a final rally to reduce the score, Arthur Richards racing away after a centre of David Jones', but the ball went behind. From the goal kick a brief visit was paid to Finchett, Lovell obliging with a flag kick, but though this was well; placed by Stone, Finchett fisted away, only to see Bot. Owen return over the bar. No further goals were scored, and with the Blues pressing the whistle sounded with the result: Conway, 4; Llanrwst, o. < COMMENTS. The cross wind spoilt what would otherwise have been a grand game. On the whole the home team was not a success. Much was ex- pected of them after their brilliant win the pre- vious Saturday at Pwllheli. But they played a splendid game in, the second half. In the last four matches they have captured eight points, and scored 14 goals against three. The home custodian had practically nothing to do, whilst Tom Jones and Bob Owen were steady in front of him. In Arthur Owen, Johnson, and Thompson they have a .sound half back line. I was immensely pleased with Johnson's play. As Ito the forwards, they were not seen at their best last Saturday. Stone must put more keen- ness in his play, whilst Breeze was too excited. Sam Parry was not a. success as pivot. He hangs too much on the ball. The right wing is perfect, composed as it is of Craven and Ather- ton. The Roosters had a mixed lot on the field, and many familiar faces were missing. In Finchett they have a capable custodian, and to him is due thanks that the score was not heavier. Trevor and W. Owen played hard. Of the halves, R. D. was the pick. Salisbury Roberts was at sea with Craven, but Lovell was con- tinually checking the home left wing. The for- wards were very weak. They had an useful centre in Richards, but Williams and Hughes could never combine together. The right wing were often dangerous, Jones driving in many useful centres-, which were thrown a.way by the inside men. Llanrwst must buck up, as this toind of play will not win the Junior Cup. But when the time comes no doubt they will have a strong team at hand, and will play with dash, and not in a half-hearted manner, as was the case last Saturday.

BANGOR v. FESTINIOG. (BY" GWILYM.") Practically a new team altogether represented Bangor in the Coast League fixture with Fes- tiniog on Saturday, owing to the City men hav- ing to turn out three teams on that day. There was a good sprinkling of spectators when the teams took the field as follows: — Bangor O. R. Jones, goal Brock and D. J. Thomas, backs; Savage, T. A. Griffith, and Thorne, halves; T. E. Jones, E. E. Thomas, Hughie Owen, Edgar Lloyd Jones, and J. Ro- berts, forwards. Festiniog: Joe Hughes, goal; Tom Hughes and Jim Lloyd (captain), backs Moss Roberts, M. E. Morris, and Will Jones, halves; Jack Jones, Will Williams, Meirion Jones, W. R. Owen, and Ned Griffiths, forwards. Referee: Mr. Morgan, of Port Dinonvie. The visitor won the toss, and from the start neither side got any advantage for some minutes, until the City men broke away on the left, and when Hughie was about to take his shot, T. A. Griffith rushed up and spoilt his partner's opportunity. Bangor kept up a slight pressure, and a very miserable show was given by Edgar Jones in front of an open goal. In his excitement, he misjudged where the ball lay. and kicked at the air. There was a slight change in the play, and the Quarrymen made 0. R. rush out to save his charge. T. E. Jones was playing a strong game with Towser, but each of their swinging passes to the left was spoilt. Roberts, the new player on the left, was a total failure, missing numerous openings given him by Hughie Owen, Little Ned Griffiths raced along the wing with Thorne close upon his heels, and from a difficult position he put in a stinger, which Brock managed to stop with his head at the expense of a corner. This was most accu- rately placed by Ned Griffiths, and W. Meirion rushing in, easily beat O. R. with a beautiful shot. The Quarrymen gave Bangor an anxious time, and it was by good luck more than judg- ment, that O. R. was in the way of a shot of terrific force by Jack Jones. The foot work bv the Festiniog rren was very pleasing to watch, and gained rounds of applause from the specta- tors. The way they eluded T. A. Griffith, the Combination player, was excellent. D. J. Thomas was playing a fine defensive game, and times out of number he gave to Roberts, but this player stuck to the ball, until he was robbed. Hughie Owen appeared-to be quite out of place at centre-forward; but on one occasion Hughes brought off a marvellous save from Hughie's foot. The ball rolled to the outside left, who had only Hughes to beat, but it was not until his third attempt that he managed to rush the ball into the net, whilst Hughes was on the ground. D. J. Thomas tried several solo runs, and he managed very well, placing in nice centres, which the forwards were slow to avail themselves of. 'The game was now rather fast, and the referee, who, I understand, is new to the work, was somewhat slack in his decisions. The Bangorians, through T. E. Jones, scored an offside goal just before the whistle blew for half-time, when the score stood at: Bangor, i Festiniog, 1. < There was a considerable change in the Ban- gor forward line on the resumption of play, Hughie Owen going to his old place as outside right. After a few minutes of midfield play, the homesters came up together, and there was a very exciting five minutes in the visitors' goal, Joe Hughes bringing off some remarkably good saves. Fouls were frequent, but no notice ap- peared to be taken of them. The pressure was kept up, and Hughes again received rounds of applause for effecting a save from Hughie Owen, although Towser had heavily charged him. At this period the referee had but little control of the players, and a decision w'hich brought about considerable laughter amongst the crowd was a penalty kick against Jim Lloyd for heading the ball away from goal. It is true that Lloyd jumped at the ball, but there was no one near him at the time. The kick was entrusted to Hughie Owen, who missed his kick and struck the upright, the ball after- wards rolling behind. Festiniog got away, and Meirion managed to get a corner kick, which proved fruitless. The game had become some what exciting, for Bangor kept up a hot fusilade on the Quarxymems goal. Joe Hughes was equal to the occasion. Shortly before time was up, T. E. Jones scored a goal with his head, when he was admittedly offside, but the referee pointed to, the centre, and in the few minutes that were to play afterwards, the Bangor men were pressing, but cculd not get through. Time was called with the homesters leading by 2 goals to 1. COMMENTS. I have not a very good impression of the referee, who, I am told, made his debut in League football on Saturday. He did not take very much notice off the linesmen, for one of them, on one occasion, raised his flag and gave the ball out, but the head of affairs proceeded with the game, and when his attention was after wards called to it, he took no notice. Al- though Bangor did the most pressure, there was not much difference in the teams, and a drawn game would have been the most fitting result. The Festiniog front line were the exponents of some pretty football. Joe Hughes was safe in goal, and the backs also played a good game. At times the half-backs were somewhat weak. Each of the forwards played a good game. « < The Bangor custodian had very little to do, and the shot that beat him was completely out of his roach. D. J. Thomas was the best of the backs, but Brock promises to develop into a fine defender. As usual, T. A. Griffith delights in dribbling, and this always meets with dis- approval from the spectators, for he usually loses the. ball before getting away. Savage and Thome played a fairly good game. The forward line was a strong one, with the exception of the outside left, who was very weak.
BEAUMARIS v. HOLYHEAD. BEAUMARIS GAIN TWO POINTS. HARD GAME AT HOLYHEAD. BY "ROLAND." A battle royal took place at Holyhead on Satur- day, between the League leaders and the Sealarks, and a goodly crowd witnessed an exciting match. The Swifts had made up their minds to win if possible, and the boys from Beaumaris-and else- where-had resolved on bagging two points in order to more securely place themselves at the head of the League. The visitors played their best International team, and after the players had been introduced to each other, the most exciting game of the year began. Mr Evan Lloyd Wil- l liams was referee, and the teams lined up as thus Holyhead—Goal, Collier backs, Rowland Wil- liams and Oswald Green (Aberystwyth); halves, J. Rowlands, W. T. Jones, and R. Ellis forwards, Salisbury Owen, R. C. Jones, O. B. Edwards, J. Wallis Jones, and H. Brown. Beaumaris :—Goal, Richards (Liverpool); backs, W. G. Williams (Liverpool), Sam Davies (Wrex- ham) halves, Taylor (Holyhead), Levi Jones (Wrexham), W. J. Jones (Conway) forwards, R. Humphreys (Beaumaris), D. C. Davies (Newtown), W. Humphreys (Beaumaris), Smedley (Mold), and Dick Evans (Bullock's Smithy). The game was fast and furious from the start, and right heartily did the supporters of the teams vociferate for the Reds" and the Blues to oci merit their approval. Both ends were visited, and Rowland Williams brought off some remarkably fine clearances. The Cosmopolitans (Beaumaris's new appellation) got down, and the home specta- (Continued on page 10).
