CONWAY v. LLANBERIS. ANOTHER TWO POINTS FOR THE JACKDAWS. (BY" RAMBLER,") One of the most miserable games, ever wit- nessed on the Morfa took place last Saturday, when Llanberis paid Conway their first visit. The Blues were short of three of their players— Tom Jones, playing with Bangor Combination at Denbigh; J. R. Jones, resting through an in- jury received the previous Saturday; and D. O. Davies, owing to a previous appointment which could not be cancelled. A trial was given to two new players, W. Owen and Jones, both of whom were failures. The third man to fill the vacancy was Wilson, the old war horse, who started as a custodian, but ultimately figured as inside left forward. Mr E. Ll. Williams was the referee. The teams were as follows: — Llanberis: Goal, R. 0. Roberts; backs, R. T. Hughes and W. P. Pritchard halves, Darnel Jones, Buck, and W. R. Williams; forwards, Rees Jones, W. H. Williams, E. Lloyd Hoigbes, R D. Evans, and D. Roberts. Conway: Goal, II, J. Wilson; backs, ob Owen and 0. Ellis; halves, W. Evans, W. Owen, and Sam Hughes forwards, Tom Crav- en, Joe Hughes, Llew Parry, A. Jones, and Sam Parry. Conway played towards the river. The visit- ing pivot got possession,, and getting round W. Owen, he looked all over a scorer, when W. Evans came to the rescue. The visitors were mo,st persistent, and from a throw in on the left E. Lloyd Hughes ran through the home defence and shot hard for goal, Wilson partly clearing; but he was defeated a second time by the visit- ing captain. This reverse was the means of put- ting more ciiasih into their play, and it was not long before Joe Hughes had equalised the .score. After Llew Parry had missed an easy chance of increasing the score, Tom Craven sent in one of his brilliant centres, which Joe Hughes breasted) into the net. The visitors were not downhea-rt-ed in the Least after this second reverse, and Wilson was kept busy in goal, bringing off a couple of clever saves. The home defence had a warm time of it for some time. It was getting near the in- terval when Llew Parry, the home custodian, scared with a splendid shot from long range. Coffee time arrived with the score Conway, 3; Llanberis, 1. Sam Hughes tried from long range on his own, and he was delighted to see; the shot bounce over Roberts into the net. Llew Parry, who now acted as custodian, was having an easy time of it. But the last ten miuntes saw a wonderful change in the play of the Quarry.men, and Llew Parry brought off some marvellous saves, and injured himself, but soon resumed. A fifth goal was added to the home score, as the result of one of the backs putting through his own goal, a poor game thus ending in a win for Conway, the final result being: Conway, 5; Llanberis, 1. COMMENTS. Llanberis have a fine set of forwards, but their defence is only moderate. Roberts, the custodian, gave a poo £ exhibition but I under- stand this was his first ,game. Conway team was completely disorganised, and all of them could be seen at times to be in each other's way, es- pecially so in the case of the forwards. They must be at their best next Saturday if they mean to turn the tables on Bangor.
