COAST JUNIOR LEAGUE. LLANDUDNO JUNCTION RESERVES v. LLECHID SWIFTS. A DRAWN GAME. (B\ ROPIN HOOD 1 's This second League fixture took piaoe at Llandudno Junction on Saturday, when Lleciiid Swifts were the visiting team. A good game and a big crowd were expected. Mr. K. Hersee, Llandudno, was the referee, and lined up the players as follows prompt to the advertised time —Llandudno Junc- tion: LI. Parry; W. E. Jones and A. Dutton J. Rowen. H. Parry and J. H. Parry; T. Craven, David Parry, W. Brookes EhHJS, Johnny Morgan and Evan Jones. Llechid Swifts: R. A. Griffiths; W. Jones and E. Owen R. W. Thomas. T. Owen and Tom Jones; T. L. Roberts, T. Donaldson, W. C. Jone; George Williams and Joe Hughes. Llechid won the toss and chose to de- fend the bottom goal. They made their superiority felt early in the gaill-2, and easily held their own against the Junctionites. Llew Parry early had a few hot shots to part with, which he did in his best style. The junction forwards got to work steadily and a neaJt: pass by Brookes Evans set the left wing going. The Llechid Swifts returned, and when within the dreaded area, with the five forwards of Llechid pressing hard the home backs, Dutton, who was playing a good game, fell and the ball glanced from his foot to the net quite unexpected by Llew. This success for the visitors came about 15 minutes from the start. Down came the Junction, and after some nice dribbling by Brookes-Evans he sent the ball forward to Evan Jones who went flying down the wing, when he banged in a shot which Griffiths marvellously turned round the post, and this save brought a cheer from the crowd, which he deserved. The Junction had a go this time. T. Craven banged in a hot one from the rght. Griffiths saved, but Evan again got it in, but, the goalie turned it round the post. The Junction now was presodng hard on Griffiths, who was clearing time after time Good work again by Brookes led to another corner, but nothing came of this, and this proved the sound de- fence Llechid had. The Swifts again n.ade tracks towards Llew, and a nice pass from the centre was sent flying over the bar much to the d".li^ht of the crowd. Although Llechid had better combination and a much stronger defence th.:m the Junction, vet the Crows held their own, and although the visitors were leading at the interval one nothing. The Llechid were penned in, and W. Jones, Llechid back, emulated Dutton by heading through his own goal much to the disgust of the goalie who was quite unprepared for such a tiling. End tc end play followed, and the Junction boys were by far the better team now. Tomny Morgan and then Brookes Evans had the Llechid backs beaten when Griffiths saved every shot. Trv as they would Lhey could not beat Griffiths. Evan Jones and Craven, the two outside men had a try. A dropping shot compleitely beat Griffiths all over. There was a great cheer. Llechid now attacked more than ever, and Llew was at his best in saving shots from all directions, but Llechid were not to be beaten, and "1gain they attacked the Junction goal in earnest. It was surprising when the equaliser came. A shot from the half back line beat Llew to pieces. Llew was too short to reach the ball Matters were level once more, and both teams strove hard for the winning goal but the defence of both teams stood their ground well, and a well contested game ended with the result: Junction, 2 Llechid SwiPs, 2.
