COAST SENIOR CUP. COLWYN BAY v. LLANDUDNO AMATE-URS. A GOAL-LESS DRAW. (BY "VIGILANT.") Great interest was manifested in the meet- ing of these rivals on Saturday at Colwyn. The weather was beautifully fine and appro- priate for a good game—and a good game was witnessed. It is remarkable the follow- ing Llandudno Amateurs has this season, owing no doubt to the fact that they have not yet been beaten. And Colwyn Bay made a mighty effort to do this on Saturday but failed. Had the Gulls done this they would have undoubtedly deserved the Certificate of Merit. A BUSY SCENE. The Amateurs journeyed from Llandudno to the Marine Hotel per motor char-a-banc, and were prompt on the ground at the adver- tised time, 2.45. The scene at the Marine Hotel before the match was reminiscent of an English Cup-tie. Motors, landaus, cycles, and other modes of conveyance were present, and the picture was an animated one. Quite half, if not more, of the spectators followed Llandudno. The Colwyn Bay Club is to be congratulated upon having pay boxes, and their new stand. The latter needs clothing a bit, and of course the necessary cover, which, I presume, will be done in time. AN APPRECIATIVE CROWD. If any evidence were necessary to prove the improved tone of the game these last two years it was found in the highly respectable people who patronise the game. There were clergy, and well-known persons present, with a fair sprinkling of ladies, And while this welcome feature is the case so long will the high tone of the game be maintained. What is wanted more is the presence of some of our kill-joys who denounce the game, which they have never seen. The gate was a gratifying one—between £ 13 and ^i4 being taken. THE GAME. The teams were given a good cheer as they ran upon the field, and excitement was great when Llandudno won the toss and played towards Colwyn, down the slight slope. Mr Harrison, of Crewe, was the referee. The opening was dashing and full of spirit. The Gulls were forcing the pace, and were evidently imbued with the seriousness of their task. Culminating a series of sharp and determined movements Stanley Hughes let fly a terrific shot high over the bar. Cheers greeted the attempt. From the goal kick the movements on both sides were effervescent and full of dash. Colwyn Bay to my fancy I were smarter on the ball at times, and there was a go-ahead and business-like method about their movements. However, Bob Davies, after the 'Chers had got down, shot in but nothing tangible was the result. Some rattling give and take play was seen. Now one side, now the other gaining the upper hand. The game was full of rousing incidents, Colwyn Bay being the more spruce of the two sides. Some excellent passing took place on both sides. Strange to say in the first half Stallard never once touched the ball, whilst Hallwood had some work to do. I I A GOAL-LESS GAME. The second half saw Cleeve in a trice shoot a gi-oundei- just wide of the post. Then a visit was paid Stallard who had to be very alert to avert the downfall of his charge. For a while Llandudno were overwhelmed by the forceful play of the Gulls, and I was of opinion that they would score. The Gulls style of play was not so cool as that of Llandudno, and it was the superb defence of the Cormorants which prevailed. Several corners fell to the Gulls during the pressure they put on, but find the net the Gulls could not. Stallard made one miraculous save just under the bar. At the other end it was a miracle how Llandudno did not put the ball in the net, when there was a flurry. A free kick to the Cormorants saw John Henry drive at a fearful pace a low shot. Hallwood stooped to field, but the force of the ball crashed against his stomach, and he was hoys de combat for a while. And so one of the most enjoyable games ended in a draw.
