-4. LLANRWST v. HOLYHEAD. THE ROOSTERS VICTORIOUS. (BY INIGO ".) Played at Gwydyr Park in wretched weather. The visitors were without some of their best men, and had to rely upon the services of several reserves. The home team were at full strength, the clubs facing each other in charge of Referee Yates in the following order: -LLaiirwst Goal, Dick Jones; backs, A. Carter and W. Trevor Jones halves, Humphrey Roberts, R. D. Richards and France Williams; forwards, Evan Jones, W. T. Jones, Howell Roberts, A. Richards and Dennis R. Jcnes. Holy- head Goal, R. Owen backs, R. Williams and R. Ellis halves, R. Jones, W. T. Jones and Louis Jones; forwards, W. Brown, R. C. Jones, O. Williams, W. Swayne and L. McNeil. Dennis Jones evading all opposition sent a beautiful shot into the net. This success came in six minutes from the start. At times it was more than the players could do to keep on their feet, and controlling the hall seemed quite out of the question. The game became an end to end tussle. McNeil and Swayne defeated the home halves, and got well up, Me Neil sending in a fine shot whilch completely beat the home custodian. The visitors did the major part of the pressing. Relief came to the home side from a foul against the visitors back, the free kick, however, gave no advantage, the ball being kept well in midfield until the Roosters from a rush by Howell Roberts, were awarded a corner, with no result. Holyhead roused themselves and forced the play to the home end, where a corner fell to their lot this was safely cleared, and the home centre got well up the field only, how- ever, to be robbed just when in a good posi- tion, and R. C. Jones took up the running and sent a shot high over the crossbar. From the kick out Dennis Jones ran the length of the pitch and transferred to the centre, Howell Roberts, who tested Owen with a clinking shot which the custodian safely negotiated, a couple of corners fell to the home side, whilst afterwards Dick Jones was called upon. Half time arrived with the score: Llanrwst, i Holyhead, 1. The second half opened with a rush by the visitors, which R. D. Richards eventualiv clearing, and, giving tohis brother, the home side at once got up the field and forced a corner. This was quickly followed by a second, the placing of which was erratic. An effort by Brown, R. C. Jones and O. Wil- liams should have met with better success, Dick Jones saving one of the best shots of the day. The Roosters showed excellent form, and had by far the best of the game, the visitors being penned in thei- own goal. Owen saved a very uglv rush almost between the posts, and a shout of goal followed by the whistle gave the impression that the homeside had scored. The referee however, pointed out to a goal kick. A few minutes later Arthur Richards, by one of his characteristic runs, beat Owen with a lovely shot, placing the Roosters ahead. Both ends were visited from now to the close, Carter distinguishing himself by grand de- defence, and W. T. Jones showing similar determination for the visitors. Final Llanrwst, 2; Holyhead, 1.
