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.
