JUNIOR FOOTBALL. COLWYN BAY CELTS v. RHOS ST. TRILLO. HOME TEAM WIN COMFORTABLY. (BY VEDETTE.") In spite of the fact that the ground was in a deplorable conjdition), the above teams decided to contest their match. There is keen rivalry between the Celts and St. Trillo, who had not previously met this season. The Saints had rather the better record on matches played, but they fully realised that in opposing the Celts on their own ground they were up against a tough proposition." It was most unfortunate that the weather had so affected the field of play, else a fine game would undoubtedly have been wit- nessed. As it was, the Saints' forwards, who have on numerous occasions given fine displays, were quite at sea on the slippery ground, and this in spite of the fact that the front line was strengthened by the inclusion of Wilson Southern, who has frequently- played for the town team. Teams — Colwyn Bay Celts D. Ll. Jones, goal; J. K. Jones and E. R. Jones, backs; J. HUgihes, Llew- elyn Roberts (captain), and W. T. Hoskins, half- backs; E. Alford, T. Parry, E. Lunt, R. Jones, and W. Jones, forwards. Rhos St. Trillo: J. Berts, goal; S. ArundaiLe and Dick Hughes, backs A. Jones, A. Downes, (captain), and G. Hughes, half backs; William Phillips, E. F.

The Celts' defenders impressed one as strong tackliers and powerful kickers, the backs being sound, whilst the halves effectively smothered any attempt at combination by the visiting front rank. Ere long the homesters were leading by two goals, but Rhos set to work with rare determination, and following upon clever work by the forwards, Colin Philips ran up and made no mistake with a hard shot. Soon after- wards Southern equalised from a penalty, but before the interval the Celts drew ahead. Half time Celts, 3; St. Trillo, 2. The Saints started the second period of the game with such dash that a score seemed im- minent, but Edgar Phillips was unable to break through the backs. The homesters had the game well in hand when they increased their lead, and later they registered a fifth point. Rhos were again awarded a penalty kick, but Southern shot outside. The Ceilts brought up ■the half dcZ'&n, and finally retired victors by a margin of four goals. 1:1 the second hall the visitors' defence was severely taxed, and proved unequal to the strain. Rhos were without their regular goalkeeper, and Berts, who was requisi- tioned --A the last moment owing to the non- appearance of Hersee, although frequently mak-
