to some good goalkeeping, prevented the home- liters netting even once. Time and again good I positions would be secured by skilful; manoeuvr- inig, only for the ball to be driven high over the bar. As time passed, the home spectators be- gan to get anxious, especially as the Bay were playing much better than in the first half. On one occasion Southern crossed to the right wing, and after running down, sent the ball across, but there was no one to put it through. Parry was tested a few times, but saved well. The rain having ceased, the game was contested under fairer conditions, but no one was really sorry when it came to a close. CONWAY SUPERIOR. The elements interfered with the match to such an extent that play was generally of a kick and rush character. Conway were much su- perior forward, and their backs were stronger than thoso of the Bay, but otherwise there was not much, to dhoose. For Conway, Tom Jones and Bob Owen were perhaps most prominent, but apart from the execrable shooting, there was not much wrong with the team. Once against it has to be chronicled, that Coilwyn Bay per- formed but moderately. HaUwood did as well as ever in goal. Morris! was a success at back; and the halves were fair. But the forwards were poor, Southern and Hughes alone being worthy of notice.
00- PWLLHELI v. TOWYN ROVERS. THE PENGUINS OUSTED. (By BREVITY,") Played at the Recreation Ground, Pwllheli, on Saturday, in boisterous weather, before a meagre attendance. Pwllheli relied on their re- serve team, as the majority of the first team were unable to play. Towyn came down strong favourites, after defeating Newtown the previ- ous Saturday in the Welsh Senior Cup. The ground was on the soft side, through the rain, but this does not account for the poor display exhibited by such a team as Towyn. The re- feree was Mr E. Lloyd Williams, and the fol- lowing represented both clubs — Pwllheli: Bob Williams, goal; RcxwUley Hughes and R. L. Pughe (captain), full-backs-; W. Griffith, R. H. White, and Glyn Williams, half-backs; Ted. Meredith, R. H. Roberts, Saun- ders Williams, Llew White, and Johnny Jones, forwards. Towyn Lewis Jones, goal W. E. G. Evans and Evan Pryce Evans, full-backs; R. Pughe Evans, G. Rees Francis, and Harry Jones, half- backs; Evan Jones, J. D. Jones, Tom Wynne, W. R. Wynne, Harry Edwards, and Joseph Owen, forwards. Towyn won the toss. and defended the West end goal. The homesters, when the game started, had only nine men on the field. Classical football was out of the question. It was of a kick and rush order for about thirty minutes, when Towyn managed to net the ball from a melee in front of goal, and this was the only point in the game. Half-time: Towyn, i Pwllheli, o. During the second portion, both teams pressed in turn, and it was seldom that any of them had an idea where the goal was. Bob Williams saved cleverly some fine shots in the second por- tion. NOTES Towyn Rovers. were practically at full strength, but the homesters were represented, by a very weak side, only four of the first team making an appearance, and Bob Williams, Pughe, and Will Griffith were by far the best players on the field. Pwllheli will joumev to. Carnarvon next Satur- day to re-pliay the tie for the second round of the Junior Cup, and it will not be surprising -f they won't trounce the Canaries by a bigger margin than they did the last time.
COAST SENIOR LEAGUE. HOLYHEAD SWIFTS v. CARNARVON UNITED. CANARIES' TRIUMPH. (BY "SIR FON.") The weather was the cause of the attendance at this match being much less than had been ex- pected. Nevertheless there was a good crowd present when Mr. W. R. Welch (Crewe) lined up the players as follows — Holyhead: W. Collier goal; G. Carlisle and R. Williams, backs; J. Williams, W. T. Jones (captain), and R. Ellis, half backs; W. S. Owen, R. C. Jones, Hugh Williams, L. McNeil, and J. (Wallace) Jones, forwards. Carnarvon: G. H. Jones, goal; Evan Hughes and Albert Griffiths (captain), backs; John Griffith, M. Herbert, and T. Williams, hart backs; R. H. Roberts, T. Roberts, Walter Jones, H. Roberts, and Johnny Jones, forwards. Holyhead won the toss, and play was keenly contested. On. the whole the homesters had rather the better of the first half, in the latter portion of which they gained several corners, one being converted: by Williams. This put the spectators on good terms with themselves, and they already counted on the victory as secured. Their optimism, however, was short-lived, as j z!1 upon resumption the Canaries attacked vigorous- ly and were awerded a penalty kick, with which Griffiths made no mistake. Stung by this re- verse, the Se.alarks transferred play to. their op- ponents' quarters, but the visitors made another desecent on the homesters' goal, and Walter Jones, the Canaries' pivot, put his side ahead. From now until the close Carnarvon were con- tinually on the defensive, but they succeeded in keeping their opponents at bay. I Carnarvon were rather fortunate to capture both points, but they impressed one as a better balanced team than their opponents, and will no doubt figure prominently this season both in the League and Cup competitions.
)MIII!I I!IIIIC COAST JUNIOR LEAGUE- LLECHID SWIFTS v. MENAI BRIDGE. ANGLESEY CLUB'S BIG WIN. The presence of Menai Bridge in the Coast League is doing much to. sustain interest in foot- ball in South Anglesey. Now that Beaumaris has withdrawn, it is to be hoped the Bridge will meet with a largely increased measure of support. Fortunate in. the possession of an esteemed chairman-, Mr. J. G. Bacon, and an energetic secretary, Mr. Hugh Roberts, to. say nothin.g of enthusiastic committeemen and whoLe-hearted players, the game should indeed flourish at Menai. On Saturday the Bridge ful- filled their League engagement with Llechid Swifts away, -and secured a fine victory by six goals to one. Such form as this will soon lift them to a prominent position in. the table. On Saturday Carnarvon Reserves visit the Anglesey town, and more probably than not they will be compelled to bow the knee to the men of Menai. The Swifts go to Llandudno-, and will have to be on their best behaviour to secure a point.
)IIIIID GL LLANGEFNI UNITED v. GLASINFRYN SWIFTS. (BY MONA.") The above re-arranged fixture was played at Llangefni last Saturday in boisterous weather. Nocranan Thomas made a welcome re-appearance in the home ranks. The teams lined out in the following order: — Llangefni United J. Newton Williams, goal; Hanmer Jones and Nafon Jones, backs; D. K. Jones, Richie Williams, and Walter Hughes, half-backs; T. K. Jones, J. Williams, Norman Thomas, Eben Thomas, and Thompson Reeoe, forwards. Glasinfryn Swifts O. R. Jones, goal; Stanley and R. Thomas, bocks; H. Hughes, D. C. Pierce, and J. P. Jones, half-backs; Eardley, W. O. Thomas, D. P. Hughes, W. Brown, and E. J. Roberts, forwards. Referee: Mr Shaw, Chester After a good deal of even play, the Cefni right wing raced down, and parted to Norman in the nick of time, and that player made no mistake, scoring the first goal for the homesters. The visitors were not to be denied, and they pressed hard for a time, and their efforts were rewarded with a goal. The battle raged fiercer than ever, and after a determined attack on the part of the homesters, Eben scored with a scorcher, the goalk-eeper got to the ball, he utterly failed to keep it from entering the net. Half-time ar. rived with the score: Llangefni, 2; Glasinfryn, 1. Resuming immediately, the homesters, with the wind in their favour, took up the attack in earnest, and shot upon shot was rained on O. R., but he saved in marvellous fashion. Final re- sult Llangefni, 2; Glasinfryn, 1. COMMENTS. The visitors are a well-balanced lot, the goal. keeper being very clever in dealing with all kinds of shots, the weakest part of the team being the halves; the forwards are nippy and clever, the extreme left being the best of the bunch. The homesters throughout played .t very clever game. Newton did his work extremely well, and the backs were very safe the halves, as usual, played a clever game. Of the for- wards, I may say they played untiringly throughout the game; Norman is an ideal pivot; T. K. also played his best game so. far. Jack Williams, T. R-eece, and Eben Thomas all payed excellently.
School and Junior Football. LLANRWST ALBIONS v. DEGANWY. ALBIOiNS AGAIN SUCCESSFUL. This match was played on Saturday t Llan- rwst. The ground was in a saturated conoi- tion and accurate play was out of the question. There was considerable life in the play, the visitors, for the better part of the first half, being ke-pt on the defence, the backs doing their work most creditably, and the custodian also performed well. One could hardly blame him for the lightning shot with which GeTTard scored, the first half ending with the home s'de leading by a goal to. nil. The resumption of play saw both sides hard at work, the visitors' forwards opening out the play in a determined fashion. On several occa- sions, however, the home sidei rushed for goal, the custodian saving well, until, from a, sudden attack, James, with an oblique shot, completely baffled the custodian. The same player placed a third past the post before the close. Result: Llanrwist: Albions, 3; Deganwy, o.
BETTWS-Y-COED v. GWYNEDD ROVERS. A match between Bettlws-y-Cbed and Gwynedd Rovers, Festiniog, was played on Saturday at Bettws. Mr Pullan was the referee. The home side at once set to work ,and the Gwynedd de- fence was sorely tried. Bettws commenced scoring, and continued at regular intervals, the homesters proving Victorians by six goals to nil.
COLWYN BAY CELTS v. RHOS ST. TRILLO. The unfavourable weather considerably inter- f(I-ed with junior football, and many matches were postponed. Colwyn Bay Celts and, Rhos St. Trillo should have tried conclusions on the Victoria Park ground, but the match was can- celled. On the Saturday the former are at home to Conway Celts, whiM St.Trillo. oppose Rhudd- la,n at Rhos. Interesting' contests should be witnessed, and it is not unlikely that both visit- ing teams will prove successful.
"'QI- FOOTBALL CHIPS. (By" VIGILANT.") That the cup-ties at Llandudno and Conway on Saturday were played under the most miser- able conditions. That I am sorry for this, as the wretched weather spoilt two chibs which need money shariing in a decent gate. That I hope better weather will attend the re- play between Llandudno and Llanrwst, at me latter place to-day (Thursday). But then-, where is the Llanrwst gate? Is it true that the magni- ficent sum of 3s. was divided between Festiniog and the Roosters, after paying expenses, in the recent Junior Cup-tie? The nimble eighteen- pense would set the war-m hearts of the Quarry- men on fire, I am sure. That the Roosters deserve every praise for their plucky fight at Llandudno. That they always give the Cormorants a good game, and are doughty fo-emen. That I trust temper will be kept out of the re-play. That there was a sign of it at Llandudno. That mouthy players on a field are a pest. That I admired the excellent play of good old Will Treior and Archie Carter. Will is always popular with the crowd. That G-illett was in fine form. That R. D. Richards was a vigorous centre- half but should give over talking and threaten- ing on the field. A silent tongue makes a wise head." That we must have a clean game. That Humphrey Roberts is a neat player, and has done good work for the club in many posi- tions. That Francis Williams is another serviceable and untiring player. That Chisholm as outside right, did well. That Howell Roberts is developing into a use- i ful forward. That Cll&eve. the tall, as Central forward, had a go-ahead way about him, and was one to look after. Eh! Johnson? That Arthur Richards is a forward I always admired. He is courageous, well knit, and has some excellent tactics, and is a good shot. That smiling Denis Jones is the outside left, and a young player with a high ideal of the game. Plays in a proper sportsmanlike manner. Very popular with the crowd. That the Roosters have a good team together just now, and are up-to-date champions of the League. iStrange to say, Llandudno is the only team which has whacked the Poultry at home in a League match. That Stallard was Staillard. Nuff sed! That Willie Wynne is improving, and has a nice knack of cooly coming out of a difficulty. That J. H. Jones was in good form. "That Harold had his work cut out. That Tom Johnson should go more for the forwards. He should tackle and go for them, and not beat a retreat, whereby the opposing for- wards gain ground. Johnson wants to liven up a bit in smart tactics. He has it in him. Bring it out, Tom. That Jack Brown will make a good half, if he will remember that a haH-back's main duty is to feed. his forwards. That W. A. Williams improved on former displays. That Brooksey was not as smart and daring as usual. That Johnnie Williams pleased me. He was unlucky with having his shots charged down. Buck up, Johnnie. Did you hear the Fidel. isian shout of encouragement ? That Bob Davies is developing into a capital player, and is one of the best scorers of the team. That Jimmy, the little, played a hard game, and was very clever betimes, notwithstanding the heavy men in front of him. uii»«iM!!i;nni»ain«im ——————————T-

Vigilant's" Post Bag. As I receive so many letters with enquiries, &c., relating to the local football world, and a personal reply in each case is out of the ques- tion, I have (Jecided to open. a Post Bag column, in which replies that are given, will, I hope, be of interest to. my readers in general. Cormorant (Llandudno).—No, you are wrong. En Avant is not a Frenchman, as you imply from his nom-de-plume. He is an Englishman, with a very good smathering of Welsh, lives in Bangor, and is well known for his dry, and at times caustic, humour. J. R." (Denbigh).—To my mind, the best equipped football ground in the North Wales Coast League is at Pwllheli. The opinion of the Aston Villa Reserves when they played the locals of that town when on an Eastertide tour, confirms by impression. Roman. (Penrhynsid-e).—Fred W. Jones, of Llandudno, is an inch or two, I am not sure, over six feet in height. Gwilym (Trefriw).—Yes, Lei Blackwall has played goal for Llanrwst. He is over six feet in height, and very nimble. A good crick- eter as well. One of the very best goalies thai the Roosters ever had was Benn Hayes. Pel Droed (Conway).—I do not mind you taking exception to the opinion 1 have of Johnnie Williams, of Llandudno, when I say he is the best centre-forward, all things considered, on the Coast. Everyone, naturally, has a right to their opinion, and whilst allowing you to. dis- agree with me, I still stick to. mine. Rooster (Bettws-y-'Coed).—I think Dick Evans, who played so well for Llanrwst some seasons ago, is somewhere between Festiniog and Bala. Nugget (Abergele).—I agree with you that Colwyn Bay has not been, the same team since Tom McCa-nn, has not been playing with the Gulls. Possibly, you are not aware that it is simply on account, unfortunately, of indifferent health that the ever-faithful Tom is not seen xti the Bay ranks, and not through any disagree- ment with his club. Thompson (Colwyn Bay).-Tom Edwards, Conway's League representative is a miner by trade, and a native of Holywell. He has been a prominent player with the team of the last- named place. Williams (Holywell).—Both Tommy Owen (Clock) and Arnold Jones, the famous right wing of the erstwhile Llandudno, Swifts, are dead. "Tom Jones (Junction).-LI.andudno Swifts beat Bangor City at St. Asapih many years ago in the final for the- North Wales Coast Cup by fiv-e goals to one. It was a sensational victory, four of the five goals for Llandudno being netted in a very few minutes. Will Arridge was Bangor's goalkeeper on that day. Marsh (Colwyn) wants to know why 1 give the Coast teams bird names. Well, why do we eat geese at Christmas? I was of opinion since we had Canaries in Carnarvon since we can remember, and Jackdaws in Conway, it would be as well to give all the Leaguers a name from the feathered tribe. -See J. J." (Rhyl).—Sammy Brookes, the little Welsh international, is a native of Llandudno. "Angy" Knight, the famous centre-half of Llandudno, is now in South Africa, and a mem- ber of the Cape Mounted Rifles. Gwilym (Beaumaris).—Mr E. Ll. Wil- liams, the League Secretary, held the same post previous to this season.. He has always been an -enthusiast of the game. Griffiths (Glan Conway).-The only way to deal with persons that defy payment for coming to see a match is to prosecute, and that with the utmost rigour of the law." Such persons should recive no quarter. Taffy (Menai Bridge).—I agree with you that the loss of Beaumaris in the League circle means a loss Off good gates to many clubs that need replenished exchequers. "Tattler" (Deganwy).—If your young brother has made such wonderful s,trides as a centre-forward in so short a time, one trembles to think what he may turn out to be in a few yecal's. You do. not say whether he is lengthy of foot. 2. Cannot say. Try Searchlight," Abergele. He is a good judge on that point. Chwareuwr (Llarnidtidno,).-Yoi- should have the courage to sign your own name to your letter, although 1 adlmire the way you address me as Vigilant Esq." You have not read mv remarks anent the Llandudno Reserves in the right spirit. 'What I mean to imply is that Llandudno supporters of the Reserves will expect a win, and they ought to have it-at whose expense, it matters not-in Llandudno." Th-isl means that Llandudno must win, no mat- ter whait team is beaten, by fair means, of course. No one wishes it otherwise unless he has taken leave of his senses, so that your senti- mental assumption as to, what I meant is alto- gether wrong. Why not write- to the referee. and state what your impressions are of him. I am sure he will look at the size of his hat when vou allege that he's suffering from a swelled head through my "ibraggirngJ him so much. Why not try refereeing yourself?

That a gentleman on the ground was heard to say that if the Amateurs only really tried, there was no reason why the Coast Cup could not be brought to Llandudno. That another miserable game was seen, on the Mo-rfa as Conway, owing to the weather. That a goal to nil victory is not much to crow about; but it suffices. That here again the gate was practicably nil, and the event does not call for any particu- lar criticism. That Colwyn Bay are in Bad Luck Street. That I hope they will soon turn round the corner. That the victory of the Canaries in Holyhead in a League encounter was an eye-opener for the Sealarks. That the Yellow Ones must have revived since their display at the Oval. That Holyhead are not what they used to be. And so it is with all teams, that they must have their ups and downs. That Pwllheli went down on their own ground at th-ei feet of the Towyn Rovers in the Welsh Amateur Cup-tie. That Portmadoc beat Barmouth in, the same Cup contest. That the Junior League, or Division II., seems to go on capitally well. That Menai Bridge is proving a fine team. That the Bridgeites beat LLechid Swifts by six goals to one at Coetmor Bach, Bethesda. That Llangefni United beat Glasinfryn Swifts at the Anglesea town by 2-1. That Llangefni team is proving a hard nut to crack. Who would have thought it? That, owing to the quagmiry state of the ground, at Bangor, on Saturday, the Combina- tion fixture with the Druids proved a very poor affair. That the Homers only managed to. win by a solitary goal. Enough, however, for a couple of points. That the fair-haired Matthews, of 'Varsity fame, was a forward in the Druids' ranks. That he is a plucky and effective player. That the Llandudno Reserves were looking on at their Seniors on. Saturday. That Mr Alf. Slater is getting quite popular in Combination matches. That Mr R. D. Richards, it is hoped, will be the referee at Llanrwst to-day (Thursday) in the re-played tie with Llanrwst and Llandudno. That the Denbigh Thrushes went down, only 2-0, on the ground of the Combination champ- ions, Crewe Alexandra. Good on yer. Still, sweet Clwydian songsters, when shall we hear you piping a song of victory. That Rhyl Combination went down at Oswes- try by 5-3. Buck up, Rhyl, please.
