Hockey. Those interested in North Wales hockey will be interested to learn that owing to the efforts of Mr H. V. Doughty Davies, Chairman of the Welsh International Selection Committee; Mr Wynne Reece, Hon. Secretary North Wales Hockey Association and Mr H. E. Roberts, the attempt by the South Wales Association to gain an in- creased representation on the International Selection Committee has been temporarily frustrated. The South Walians proposed that each Association should be allowed one member on the Committee for every twelve clubs, and by this arrangement South Wales would have had four repesentatives to one from North Wales. The present arrange- ment is that three members from each Association have seats, a chairman being appointed yearly from each Association in turn. The North Wales representatives contended that the resolution was out of order, as it is clearly stated in the rules of the Welsh Hockey Association that an article of association may only be changed at a special meeting held in the month of April. This protest was over-ruled in Wales, but upon appeal to the English Hockey Association, the parent body, the protest was upheld. The trial match East v. West will take place at Llandudno on Saturday. OLD COLWYN v. PRESTATYN. A very keenly contested mixed hockey match took place between the above teams on the ground of the latter on Saturday afternoon. The Colwyn team very much regretted their having to play with two short of the full team, but under the circumstances it was unavoidable. To add to this misfortune, about ten minutes after the bully off, Mrs Sidney, the visiting right half, twisted her knee very severely which necessitated her leaving the field for the rest of the game. Up to this point the visitors had pressed, and on continuing with only eight playere they still had most of the game, and about five minutes later Dr Davies opened their score. This was soon followed by another goal from Pryce Jones, who, receiving the ball from the centre forward, put in a shot which gave the opposing goal-keeper no chance. The play then became more even, and the home team through their centre forward and right inside, put in two goals within a few minutes of each other. No further scoring took place before half-time. On resuming the game Colwyn assumed the upper hand, and soon obtained a lead of two goals, through Dr Davies, who secured the second after a brilliant run through their defence from the centre of the field. This was again increased by a hard shot from Pryce Jones, which was quickly followed by another from Miss Hicks. Prestatyn then seemed urged to further efforts, aud twice got through the Colwyn defence before time was called. The visitors were left victors by 6 goals to 4. This was decidedly a very creditable win for Colwyn. The team which represented Colwyn was as follows:—Backs, Miss Osborn and J. Evans halves, Mrs Sidney, L, Lewis and J, Lewis; forwards, Miss Hicks, Lloyd, Dr jjDavies, and W. Pryce-Jones. |
