Conway v. Festiniog-Continued. hole, and then cleared. The next item of note was a pretty header by Joe Hughes from a corner kick, which, went whizzing over the cross- bar. The spectators split themselves with laughter, when the Quarrymen continually handled the balil-,and that deliberately, when a dangerous move was on. The first goal of the match came as a result of a combined movement by the three inside men, the honour falling to. J. R. who tipped the ball in the net out of the reach of Smith. The Blues continued to press, but the smart keeping of Smith saved his side from drastic punishment. The second goal came as a result of Penny's absent-mindedness, he having allowed Sam Parry a clear run. Penny found his mistake, but could not keep up to. Sam, with the result that an accurate centre was placed, and Davies rushed the ball into the net. An individual run by Toe Hughes appeared a certainty, and with no one but the goalkeeper to beat, Davies, who was standing offside, took the ball of Hughes's toe and placed it in the net. But the point was disallowed. Coffee time arrived, with Conway leading by two goals to nil. SMART GOlALKEEPINiG. The second half of the game was more in the nature of a comical match than a cup-tie game, and the only grand display was that by amitn m goal, who showed that he was a hard nut to crack. Shot upon -shot he saved effectively, and he came out of difficult corners with flying col- ours. His scant stature, however, tells against him, and if he could but add but a few inches to his stature, there is no doubt but that he would be one of the finest goalees in North Wailes football. He is as agile as a cat, and with ground shots he is a masterpiece. The Blues did all the pressing during the second half, and three more goals were added to their half-time lead by Bob Owen, Joe Hughes, and Tom Craven. Poor Sam had to rest centent with having a clean bill, owing, as I have pre- viously stated, to the watchfulness of Penny. The whole of the second half was of a ding-dong character, and the spectators ,a,rrneared to. hear- tily enjoy it. The game ended with the home- sters leading by five goals to nil. COMMENTS. The shining light of the Quarrymen was UiIl- doubtedly Smith, who got out of some difficul- ties in a marvellous fashion, and his keeping was so much admired, that all the spectators had crowded around his goal. Shots were rained 011 him from every direction, and on one occasion he had run. out of his citadel and partially cleared. J. R." had the goal at his mercy, but the little man managed—how, I cannot tell—to divert the shot which was making for the net. The only other player of note in the team was R. Ellis, the left back, who is a sound kicker. If anything the right wing was a little superior to, the others, but their idea of goal was meagre. With practice, however, I have no. doubt that the team will make a mark for iself in a season or two. Of the home eleven, J. R." was undoubtedly the best of the forward line. Why this player is left out of the original team, I cannot imagine. He has plenty of dash, and is tricky. The Blues could not grapple with the rough and tumble game of their opponents, with the result that they were greatly handicapped. I learnt that many of them retired after the match with mementoes on their legs of the dashing Quarrymen. Tom Jones was sadly missed, he having been laid up for some days. ]818 01
COAST SENIOR LEAGUE. LLANBERIS v. UNIVERSITY COLLEGE THE MODERN ATHENIANS AGAIN VICTORIOUS. (BY" iSEGONTIUM.") The above match was played at Llanberis on Saturday, before a good gate. The referee (Mr Shaw, Chester) lined up the teams as follows:- Llanberis: O. J. Owen, goal; R. Lloyd Hughes and O. R. Owen, backs; Dan Jones, George Buck, and W. R. Thomas, half-backs; W. H. Williams, W. R. Williams, E. Lloyd Hughes, Richard Williams, and Dan Rowlands, forwards. University J. Daniel, goal; Owen and C. H. Jones, backs; Arthur Williams, Don Rowlands, and Brock, half-backs; T. E. Jones, Matthews, Wright, Smedley, and Claude Davies, forwards. Llanberis won. the toss, and the 'Varsity for- wards raced away. Don screwed in, and E. Lloyd Hughes handled. Smedlev then. sent over the goal line. A run followed, D. Jones placing E. Lloyd Hughes in possession, but W. H. Wil- liams, unfortunately, sent behind. The "'Varsity gained a. corner, but O. J. Owen cleared. From a pass by T. E. Jones, Don Rowlands scored amidst cheers. The homesters were off again, but offside spoilt their chances* However, E. Lloyd Hughes initiated a run, and W. H. Williams forced a corner, from which R. Williams scored for Llan- beris. The homesters were playing well at this stage. The ball next came to Matthews, who passed to Claude Davies, who returned the ball to Matthews, the latter scoring. O. J. Owen saved another attack by granting a corner, which was cleared. Offsidie spoilt a nice move by Smed- ley and C. Davies. R. Lloyd Hughes was play- ing well, and checked Brock when dangerous. E. Lloyd Hughes next got through, but C. H. Jones checked the invaders, and gave to his left wing. W. R. Williams scored, but the whistle had previously gone for offside. However, the next minute W. R. Williams received a pass from E. Lloyd Hughes, threaded his way through, and scored. The homesters were now playing grand, but met with a stubborn defence. Half-time soon arrived with the score two all. The 'Varsity pressed at first, but R. Lloyd Hughes cleared well. Claude Davies centred but the ball went the wrong side of the net. Give and take play followed, but the 'Varsity were slowly showing their superiority. In a rush, Wright scored for them. Llanberis missed a good chance of scoring. Bob Lloyd defended well, but the 'Varsity forwards were not to be denied, and Matthews scored a lovely goal at close quarters. Llanberis made some fine efforts to score, but Daniel was in fine fettle, and cleared well. Further goals for the 'Varsity were scored by Claude Davies and Don Row- lands. Final result: 'Varsity, 6; Llanberis, 2.
COAST JUNIOR LEAGUE. LLANGEFNI UNITED v. LLANDUDNO RESERVES. (BY MONA.") Great interest was taken in this match at Llan- gefni on Saturday. A splendid crowd appeared to weilc/ame the visitors on their first visit to the town, and they brought their strongest team ,possible, but Llangefni were minus their centre- forward, Norman Thomas. The referee, Mr C. O. Jones, Bangor, lined up the teams in the following order:- Llangefni: Newton Williams, goal; Harmer Jones and Nafon Jones. backs; D. K. Jones, R. T. Williams, and Walter Hughes, half-backs; T. K. Jones, Jack Williams, Eben Thomas, T. Reece, and Owen Jones, forwards. Llandudno: R. Lunt, goal; C. Roberts and J. Lunt, backs; H. Davies, G. Davies, ana IC,ecil Roberts, half-backs; D. Griffith, Noel Ro- berts, Mackenzie, W. Owen, and H. Roberts, forwards. The opening stages favoured the homesters, and they forced three corners in quick succes- sion, but of no avail. The visitors led the at- tack for a short time, but the Cefni defence was like a rock. After nice passing by the Cetfni forwards, and when on the point of shooting, Owen Jones was fouled in the penalty area, and a penalty was awarded. The kick was entrusted to T. K. Jones, and to the disap- pointment of the crowd, he banged the ball against the bar, so a fine opportunity was lost. From now to the interval the game was very evenly contested, half-time arriving with no score. In the second half the play was very exciting, and after a quarter of an hour the Cefnites' first -success came, O. Jones putting the finishing touch to a splendid movement, and Lunt was helpless, though he made a good attempt to reach the ball. After having once tasted blood, the Cefnites were anxious to augment their score, and at last a second goal came, Eben Thomas scoring with, a fast grounder, quite out of the reach of Lunt. After this, Llandudno seemed determined to retrieve their position,, and many times they made a gallant attempt, but Hammer or Nafon was always in the way, and the visitors had to retire beaten by two goals to nil. COMMENTS. I was more or less disappointed with the Llan- dudno team, the defence proved very strong; but the forwards could not get going at all, but no dioubt the worrying tactics of the Cefni halves were responsible for much of it. The Llangefni team, on Saturday's display, will be difficult to defeat. One could not find a weak spot m the. whole eleven, and it would be unfair on my part to individualise any of the players.
FLINTSHIRE CHALLENGE CUP (FIRST ROUND.) TRYDDYN v. RUTHIN. BAD LIGHT STOPS PLAY. (BY CASTELLYDD.") The above Cup-tie was played at Tryddyn on Saturday, the visitors arrived a little late and play was not started until 3-15 Teams:— Tryddyn: A. Jones, goal; R. Lloyd and J. Langford, backs G. Turner, R. J. Davies and R. Humphreys, half-backs T. Burrows, G. Kendrick, G. Williams, E. Williams, W. Williams, forwards. Ruthin H. W. Owen, goal; Jack Thomas and Ivor Jones, backs; W. R. Owen, W. A. Evans, and G. Rowlands, half-backs; W. Goodwin, W. Williams, J. E. Edwards, Dick Thomas, and Stephen Roberts forwards. Referee.—Mr. T. J. Davison, Buckley. EVEN AT THE INTERVAL. Tryddyn won the toss and decided to play up the field. Ruthin soon attached but they found a safe defence and the homesters took up the aggressive. The visiting backs were weak in clearing. Owing to the kick and rush tactics of the homesters Ruthin were not able to settle down and were continually in difficulties. The homesters were frequently in the Ruthin goalmouth, and a shot from the left wing was travelling into Owen's hands when Jack Thomas in attempting to clear turned the ball from Owen into the net. How the crowd did shout and cheer at this lucky point. The homesters again attached strongly, but erratic shooting saved the visitors' goal. From a goal kick J. E. Edwards received and passed to Dick Thomas who set Roberts going, but Referee Davison gave Roberts off-side. Keeping up the pressure the visiting forwards troubled the home half-backs by a delightful bout of passing but the parting shot was weak. However Edwards again got going and after tricking two or three opponents steadied himself and scored a grand goal. The visitors were still pressing when the whistle went for half-time. Score :— Tryddyn, i Ruthin, 1. A QUARTET OF GOALS. On restarting Ruthin paid a visit to the home quarters but Lloyd cleared and nice work on the right wing by Kendrick and Burrows ended in a fruitless corner. Obeying the shouts of their supporters the home forwards gave the visiting defence an anxious time, Owen saving finely. W. Williams was very weak for the homesters at outside-left, but Burrows was playing well on the right wing, and Kendrick taking advantage of a misunderstanding between the visiting backs scored a second goal. After this the visitors fell off in their play, and Tryddyn were again aggressive and E. Williams ran to within a few yards of Owen who came out and dived down to Williams's feet and succeeding in effecting a brilliant save. The homesters again advanced against the Ruthin goal and the ball was sent into the net. The few supporters who had come with Ruthin thus saw their team losing 3-1, and they began to liven up the players. It was well so, for Ruthin awakened up and completely over- ran their opponents, Dick Thomas scoring a beautiful goal and Owen the half-back sending in a rocket shot for goal which Langfoid helped into the net with his head. The visitors had the full measure of the home defence now and forced corner after coraer, but the luck was with Tryddyn, and with the visiting forwards in the penalty area the home backs appealed because of bad light and Referee Davison without even consulting the linesmen or the opposing captain stopped the game 7 minutes before time, with the score :— Tryddyn, 3 Ruthin, 3. COMMENTS. For the homesters Kendrick played the best game; although when playing back in the first half he was injured and had to retire for a while, he offered a stubborn defence and altered the forward line very much in the second half when he partnered Burrows, who also did well. The home- sters were very vigorous in their charging, and Davies who was very reckless hurt Burrows in attempting to charge Rowlands. THE VISITORS. Owen in goal played a fine game, but Jack Thomas was not up to his usual form and Ivor Jones a boy from the County School was successful at left back against a difficult' wing. The three inside forwards played well in open field but never severely tested the home custodian, and once Williams sent into Jones hands when a few yards from goal. 'II' 118M(
SCHOOL AND JUNIOR FOOTBALL. RHOS ST. TRILLO v. RHUDDLAN. A CREDITABLE WIN FOR RHOS. (BY VEDETTE.") This match was played at Rhuddlan on Satur- dav in ideal weather. Teams:- Rhos: J. Berts, goal; S. Arundale and R. Hughes, backs T. Evans, C. Mclntyre ,and A. Jones, half-backs; R. Ellis, E. Tucker, E. Phil- lips, W. Kay, and A. Warburton, forwards. Rhuddlan: J. E. Roberts, goal; A. N. Other arid W. C. Roberts, backs; J. Parry, T. Wil- liams, and D. Jones, half-backs; A. Williams, R. Wynne, W. Wynne, G. Wynne, and J. Evans, forwards. R. Hughes, the visiting skipper, won the toss, and elected to play with the slope in his favour. W. Wynne kicked off before a fair attendance. The visitors pressed, and in a short time E. Phillips placed them ahead with a nice shot. After this the homesters went away, and in a few minutes the scores were equal, G. Wynne do,ing the needful. Rhos were not to be denied, and kept up the pressure, E. Tucker missing by inches only. From a goal kick the visiting for- wards received the ball, and after good combina- tion, E. Phillips netted. There was no holding the visitors now, and several times they came near scoring. The homesters at length attacked

LLANDUDNO COUNTY SCHOOL v. COLWYN HAY HIGHER GRADE SCHOOL. SUCCESS OF THE VISITORS. Played at Llandudno on November 13th. The Bay succeeded ini avenging their reverse on Ootober 6th, being represented, as follows Bland, goal; A. Nevitt and R. T. Davies, backs J. Roberts, W. Thomas, and J. Hulme, half backs; N. Tucker (captain), R. Booth, W. S. Griffiths, R. Chaplin, and B. Roberts, for- wards. During the first half the visitors pressed, but the shooting of the forwards was ineffective, while during raids by the County Kerridge and Griffiths rushed up and netted for the Bay. On the resumption the visitors carried an before them, but the County defence was equal to the occasion. The .Higher Gradle, however, were not to be denied ,and before time further goals were scored by R. Chaplin, R. Booth, and N. Tucker. Result: Higher Grade, 4; County School, 2. COMMENTS. The visitors thouroughly deserved their win, and their tsoore should have been increased, but many chances were spoilt through the forwards over-ruinning the ball. The goalkeeper and backs., after a bad start, were invulnerable;, whilst the halves ably assisted the forwards. For the County School, Kerridge and W. Brown were prominent, and the defence did well. The visitors are entitled to much credit, and evi- dently have got together a very serviceable team.
CONWAY CELTS v. HIGHER GRADE. A KEENLY CONTESTED GAME. On Saturday the Higher Grade travelled to Conway, where they encountered a promising team in the Celts. Higher Grade Bland, goal A. Nevitt and R. T. Davies, backs; W. Thomas, G. P. Hughes and J. Hulme, half backs R. Owen, N. Tucker (captain), R. Booth, W. S. Griffiths, and B. Ro. berts. forwards. The visitors won the toss, and decided to play against the wind. From the kick off Conway made tracks for goal. The Celts were by far the heavier team, and it appeared at first as if the school were in for a heavy defeat. Conway soon scored, but then the visiting forwards got going in fine style, and subjected the Celts' de. fence to heavy pressure. During a melee in front of goal R. Owen drew the backs towards him and then placed the ball well ahead, where it was pounced upon by R. Booth, whose shot left the goalkeeper helpless. Both sides now strove to secure the lead, and the schoolboys as- tonished their opponents by their spirited tactics and knowledge of the game. When the Celts drew ahead it was in an unexpected way. The ball was casually kicked into the visitors' goal- mouth, and to the surprise of all beholders Bland allowed the leather to roll over the line. Elated by their success, Conway attacked in ,earnest, and scored through H. Jones. The Bay retaliated and N. Tucker netted a second point for them. Half-time Celts, 3 Higher Grade, 2. Upon resumption the school pressed and seriously troubled the home defenders. From one of the many corner kicks R. Booth netted, but the referee disallowed the goal for offside! This decision was warmly challenged by the visiting players, and soon afterwards, from a breakaway, the Celts augmented their score to four. Result: Conway Celts, 4 Higher Grade, 2. COMMENTS. The visitors complain of the refereeinip- tineir contention being that the knight of the whistle was unduly influenced, by the claims of the home players. W. Owen played a safe game for the Celt, and frequently checked the movements of the opposing forwards. C. Jones, at left back, also did good service. For the Higher Grade, Nevitt played a sterling game at right back, be- ing the best defender on the field. The half- backs and forwards have a fine understanding. their combination being delightful to watch. R. Hoothscored his usual goal, and has been sim. ilarly successful in -every match this season.
RYDAL MOUNT v. FRIARS' SCHOOL, BANGOR. A DRAWN GAME HEAVY SCORING. This match was played on Saturday on Rydal's ground. Rydal won the toss and elected to play towards Bryn Euryn. Friars' inside right started off with a rush, but failed to score. Leale got the ball, and took it down the field, but was prevented from' scoring through being fouled by Friars' right back. Baker took the free kick and scored with a splendid shot quite out of the goalkeeper s reach. Rydal pressed, and Westbrook took a close shot, but did not score, the ball hitting the goalpost. Friars' left back, with a fine kick, sent the ball to -his left wing, whereupon their inside man made a rush, but was well stoppea by Wilson. Waddinghtam then took the ball down the field, but instead of shooting, passed to Slack, whose shot was saved. Sykes got possession of the ball, and took a long shot, but/just missed. The visitors' outside left dribbled up the field and scored with a low shot. Friars started pressing, and Robson. made a splendid .save and sent the ball to Rydal's left win?. The visitors' outside right kicked the ball out, but Dean gave a foul throw. Friars' right back took the free kick, and sent the ball up the field to his inside right, who scored. Immediately after the ball was centred Friars' scored their third goal with a rush, ex- hibitmg some smart combination. Rydal pressed1, and Deani missed an easy shot. The -visitors then rushed, and a shot from their centre-forward was well saved by Robson. Rydal attacked on the left wing, and in spite of Sykes' nice centre no further score resulted. Leale made another good run, but failed to score. Friars' rushed and forced a corner. Wilson cleared nicely, but Friars' continued to press, and Robson made another clever save The visi- tors took a corner: but Wilson sent the ball down the field. Westbrook and Slack took pos- session of it and ran down, Slack centreing to Sykes, who, however, failed to score. RYDAL'S CLEVER FORWARDS. Friars' took the ball to the other end, and pressed for some time, their centre-forward tak- ing a shot, but Wilson cleared well. Friars' again brought up the ball, but their out&vie left was offside. Leale received, and after beating several opponents shot a good goal. Immedi- ately after the kick off Sykes forced a corner, and L-oal-e made a run, but passed to West- brook, who was offside. The visitors made the most of a free kick, and attacked, but a good shot from the right inside was saved by Robson, who cleared well. Sykes had a good run. but was prevented from scoring by Friars' right back. Rydal were again aggressive, and Leale took a shot, but the ball hit the crossbar and was cleared. Half-time Rydal, 3 Friars', 3. After a few minutes, Friars' made a rush. Robson saved their shot and cleared well. Their centre-half. took a shot, which was saved by Robson, who was forced to concede a corner. The corner was of no avail, for Slack captured the ball and took it down the field. Soon after, Rydal were down again, and Dean scored from a free kick. Waddingham rushed through and took a shot, which was well saved. Wadding- ham again drove the ball in, and then Leale and Westbrook took the ball up the field, Leale scoring at close quarters. Baker took a long shot, but just missed. Leale scored again after Rydal had been pressing for some time. THE BALL BURSTS. Baker got the ball, and passed to Slack, who missed his shot but forced a corner. Friars' right-half took the ball past the Rydal backs and scored an easy goal. The visitors scored again in a rush. "Waddiingham and Sykes rushed, Svkes passing to Leale, who was given offside. Sykes again took up the ball and centred to Westbrook, who just failed to score. Friars' left back captured the ball from Slack, and the outside left made a lun, but no goal resulted. The ball was spiked on the railings, and five minutes were spent in waiting for another to be brought. When the ball arrived Leale took it well up, and only just failed to find the net. Rydal still pressed, and another goal appeared certain, when the whistle blew for time. It was a very close game throughout. Result: Rydal, 5 Friars', 5. Rydal team: Robson, -oal; Bestall and Wil- son, backs; Dean, Baker, and Wood, half- backs Sykes, Waddingham, Leale, Westbrook, and Slack, forwards. Referee, Mr. L. Winfield.
LLANRWST NATIONAL SCHOOL v. BETTWS JUNIORS. HEAVY SCORING BY THE SCHOOL. This return fixture was played on the Gwydyr Park ground on Saturday. The referee wias Mr. R. D. Richards, Llanrwst. The opening exchanges: were fairly even, the Nationals gradually gaining ground and the for- ward line making good use of every opportunity. Henry Jones scored and in a short time, with the aid of Ronald Kench, who, sent in a rasp- ing centre, Jones, added a second. For the re- mainder of the first half play centred mainly in midfield, the Bettws backs doing good work. In the second half play became exciting, both ,sides making strenuous efforts to gain superior- ity. The National forwards gradually wore down their opponents, and a third point was added. A fourth was scored by D. E. Jones, and a fifth was the outcome of a penalty. A sixth came from the foot of Hughie Bickers, as also did the ninth. Trevor Garner was responsible for the sixth, and Henry Jones for the seventh and tenth. Result: Llanrwst National, 10; Bettws, o. The Nationals were much too good for the Juniors, the passing of the forward line was excellent, and their goalkeeper was not called upon throughout the game.
-818 ft 8NIC MOLD THURSDAYS v. RUTHIN CASTLE. For thi,s match on Thursday Ruthin had a slightly weakened team, whilst the Mold team was considerably strengthened by several town reserves. In the first half the home centre for- ward scored, and at the interval Mold led by a goal to. -.1i1. They subsequently added three further points, whilst the visitors were success- ful on one occasion. Result: Mold Thursdays, 4; Ruthin Castle, 1.
FOOTBALL CHIPS. (BY VIGILANT."1 That it was a pill for the Canaries to have to go under so deeply to the Homers on Saturday. That it was on the Oval, too, mind you; and the Canaries were the holders of the Welsh Coast Senior Cup. That one may call it Carnarvon's day off, or what one likes, it was a fact that the Canaries were a spent force on Saturday. That I greatly admired the Bangorians' game. It was dashing, plucky, and very effective. That I should think, on Saturday's form, the Homers would have beaten almost any i^am. That the Bangor side is a rattling one. That however prejudiced one may be, one could not but admire the Bangor style," not that style associated with the Citizens when kicking out was necessary. That it is at least amusing to read in a stand- ard daily that the game was an extremely poor one from every point of view, neither team doing itself justice." That never was such an idea put in print that was not borne out by facts. That it was a galling game to the Canaries, and a glorious one to the Homers. That the gate was about r16 16s. od., I under- stand. That Lewis, M.A., was the linesman for Ban- gor, and factotum ini general to the Citizens. That his usually cheery face was wreathed in smiles when tea was served at the Commercial Hotel. That there was a tinge of melancholy regard- ing Carnarvon, when one reviewed the glorious fights of last season. That the Canaries, although handicapped, were beaten at all points. That there was a lacking of oneness" of purpose amongst them. That in my humble judgment the Canaries met their masters, who completely routed them. That G. H. Jones in goal was as good as ever. That Evani Hughes played the cleanest game I have seen for many a long day. IVelli done, the Slatefrian influence. That Evan Richard Jones was, a fine substi- tute for Albert Griffiths. That he worked like a terrier. That he did some very smart work, being fearless, resolute, and effective. That I cannot say much for the usual halves, Johnny Griffiths, Mick Herbert and J. Williams. That their work was heavy in dealing with the nimble Bangor forwards. That Johnny Jones was the best of the very indifferent front line. That W. J. was clean off colour. That Twm Bach yr Offis wlas out of his form. That the substitute for Hughie Roberts, R. Trevor Roberts, was an in-and-out player, and methinks suffered much from nervousness. That Mr. Alf Slater controlled the game in splendid (manner. Incipient roughness was nipped in the bud. Quite so, Mr. Alf. Good on, yer! That I am gliad Ted Owen has recovered. He was in great form on Saturday. That D. J. Thomas played the game of his life. That Ireland was also a capital back, not-with- standing the senseless hooting of the crowd. That Arthur Owen could not have done better. That H. T. Davies was a teaser as centre half. Aslk Walter Jones !That D. T. Davies was a magnificent half. Thart; the Tregarth youth (Rowlands) is a fine acquisition to the HOomCITSI' front rank. That 1 was delighted to see the genial Charlie Blllm back in his old nlace. That Hughie Owen was a fine leader. That Ivor Thomas and Edgar Lloyd Jones were as good as they make them." That the .next round of the cup will be in, teresting. That I presume two matches will be played and two teams will have byes. That coasters will be on the tip-toe of ex- pectation as to knowing which are the clubs to be. That there are some fine clubs left in the contest—Pwllheli, Bangor, Conway, Llandudno, Flint, and Denbigh or Rhyl Grange, the latter having to replay. That no. one is surprised at Llanrwst losing their tie with Festiniog, through playing in- eligible players. That it seemed silly of the Roosters' Executive to trot out those players who brought about the clim.ax to their Junior Cup aspirations. That the Roosters might have overcome the Flamingos with a less strong team and shared in future gates. That Llandudno Amateurs had no difficulty in overcoming the Gulls in the Coast Amateur Cup at Llandudno-. That the visitors were minus three selected players. That the Guile were no match for the home- sters, whose play afforded keen delight to Llan- dudno spectators. That the score at half-time was two nil in favour of the Cormorants, who eventually won by 4-1. That the scorers for Llandudno were Bob Davies (2), Johnson (1), and Brookes-Evans (i). That Waterhouse obtained the solitary point for the Bay. That a prominent committeeman from Colwyn Bay left the ground at half-time. Why? That he was not the only man to do so. That on the homeward journey the opinion was freely expressed that the Bay ought to obtain better players or give it up." That this is a very weak-hearted view to take. That the genial Tommy McCann was lines- man for the Bay, and must have felt sorry he wa.s not on the field of play. That one gentleman enquired how it was that places like Denbigh and Rhyl could run Com- bination teams, whilst Colwyn Bay and Llan- dudno had to potter along in the North Wales Coast League. That the North Wales Coast League is an ex- cellent and well-managed body, and ought not to. be disparaged. That it has done much for football, and_ every year the League fight increases in interest. That it was hard lines on Colwyn Bay to be without three selected players. That the Gulls have another nut to try and crack on Saturday next at Conway in the Welsh Amateur Cup. That the Roosters journey to Cormorant! and. That I wonder if the Roosters will manage to gain their first victory on Llandudno ground. That there should be another good attendance on Saturday at Llandudno, when the up-to-date champions of the League visit the Council Field. That it was on that ground that they won the Junior Cup last April. That there would be a cock-a-doodle if the game old birds won. What say the 'Chers about this? Strange things have happened. That the Roosters are always welcome visitors to Llandudno. 'That the ever-green devil-may-care Trevor will of course be there. Pa hwyl, Will? That the bird-names I have given to football teams are not copyright, so I do not complain of their being appropriated by other p-apers. That in fact I appreciate the unintended com- pliment. That Denbigh Thrushes found a hard nut to crack at Rhyl'on Saturday, when they met the Grange team in the Coast Senior Cup-tie. That if Newcastle United come to train for the English Cup-tie at 'Rhyl, which is more than probable, the Novocastrians may be induced to plav Bangor Combination team at Bangor. That if such comes about it will be through the kind influence of my friend Mackenzie— Penmon. way. Thiat although the Northmen are not doing so well as last season, there will be great interest centered in the event, and a good game will ensue. That it seems so. peculiar for a team leading at 4-1 at half-time to -be ultimately beaten by 6-5. Such was Bangor's fate at Chirk on Satur- day. That an emergency committee is wanted in connection with the Coast Football Association. That this was evidenced by the Secretary call- ing a special meeting of the Council on Satur- day afternoon, and that at 3.30 o'clock, when cup-ties were in full swing in. the district. That certain protests were heard and upheld. That it will be good news if the special depu- tation to Wrexham last night of the Coast As- sociation- are able to arrange a North v. South match, or, failing that, a match with some English League club. That the £ 10 donation given the League by the Association has done wonders in creating a gcod spirit of brotherline-ss amongst the ruling authorities. That the Llandudno Reserves complain very much of the want of justice towards them by the referee at the Llangefni match. That a blunt-spoken member of the seaside team revived the objectionable phrase United Kingdom team as applicable to Llangefni. That the most important thing in connection with the Reserves will be to. report a win. That; their supporters expect it, and, ought to have it-at whose expense it matters not-in Llandudno. That the return of Johnny Williams to the central position, of the Llandudno Amateurs' front line worked wonders. That I have always maintained, and ever shall, while J. E. is able to play that a better leader in the front rank we have not on the Coast. That his inclusion inspires confidence and a spirit of go-ahead with his colleagues. That Jack Brown makes a good half. Still, he should not ramble so much. That Vedette" takes a great interest in junior football. That he is a competent critic, and many have asked when he is going to appear in a local eleven. That all junior teams will find in him a good friend. That Uncle Lloyd, of Conway, is as footbally as ever. That the interest in the game at Pwllheli is reviving. That it will grow now that the Penguins are in the next round of the Coast Senior Cup.

It was thought the homesters would play bet- ter down the slope, and from the re-start they rushed down and W. Wynne reduced the lead. Exciting play ensued, and Rhos were unlucky in not scoring through W. Kay, who gave the goal- keeper some warm handfuls. Just before time there was a fierce tussle in front of Berts, but he saved with a crowd of opponents upon him. A good game resulted: Rhos St. Trillo, 3; Rhuddlan, 2. COMMENTS. Rhos fully deserved their win, for they played well. J. Berts made some fine saves. There was not much to choose between the backs, both playing well. Of the halves, C. McIntyre stood out a little more., than the others, but all three played well. The forwards were very good, and much too clever for the home defence. The three inside men were particularly smart, their passing being the feature of the match. Rhos St. Trillo meet Colwyn Bay Celts on Saturday on the Victoria-park ground, Colwyn Bay. There should be a keen contest between these promising junior teams.
