THE COMBINATION. DENBIGH TOWN v. CHESTER. FAST AND EXCITING GAME. (By "VANGUARD.") I fear that after the manner in which I criticised the Denbigh team last Saturday it will not seem correct for me to compli- ment them too much on their performance on Saturday. It might be only another spurt, and next week they may slide back into the groove. At all events, they drew on Saturday with one of the best teams in the Combination. But as the Scotchman said I 'hae ma doots," and only hope that at last the tone of Denbigh football is going to be raised. There was a decided change in the team. The brothers Lawless did not put in an appearance. Sam Griffiths was again in goal, for the first time since the Whitchurch incident. Tommy Davies, an old member of the team, again took up his position. Fred Lloyd was at outside right. The weather was particularly well adapted for football, but only a moderate gate witnessed the game. The referee was Mr. Dobson, Crewe, and the teams were: Denbigh: Goal, Sam Griffiths; backs, Dickins and J. Parry Evans half backs, H. Cartwright, Edward Hughes, and Tommy Davies; forwards, Fred Lloyd, E. E. Davies, Dick Thomas, J. Tuckfield and Berwyn Davies (captain). Chester: Goal, Charlie Morgan; backs, Darett and Williams half backs, Carter, Graiger, and Ormisher; forwards, Cooney, Schofield, Homes, McCarty, and Riley. THE GAME. The Cestrians won the toss, and Dick Thomas was soon championing the home- sters' course. He sent in a nice pass to Berwyn, who raced away, and sent in a terribly swift shot without centreing. Never- theless, it was true and went home com- pletely out of Morgan's reach. The shout that greeted the performance was mingled with exclamations of surprise, so sudden had the goal been registered, the ball hav. ing only been in play three minutes. Soon afterwards—the outcome of persistent at- tacking by the home van—Ned Evan scored. What a change this state of affairs was, to be sure, and what a change to see the smiling faces of the home supporters. That smile, however, soon came off, and was displaced by looks of anxiety. Shot after shot—driven with remarkable degrees of force, were rained uoon Griffiths. The ex- citement was great; each shot seemed as if it was going home. Sam for a time dealt with them all, but as the firing party got nearer their shots got more accurate, and the Denbigh goal was penetrated after splendid play by both clubs. The visitors seemed keen on having the equaliser before half time. Ormisher (the ex-Everton player) fed his wing splendidly, but the interval arrived with Denbigh the leaders for the first time this season. Half time: Denbigh, 2; Chester, 1. On resuming, the visitors proved the ag- gressors in the opening skirmishes. Fred Lloyd sent in a splendid pass to Ned Evan, who sprinted smartly ahead, and outwitted his opponent. Fred Tuckfield dashed in to meet the centre. The winger judged his shot with such accuracy that Morgan had no chance, the ball going in well under the bar, thus registering Denbigh's third goal. Cooney, who had been persevering all the afternoon, suddenly forced an open- ing, and drove in an extraordinarily power- ful shot, which completely beat Sam. With only eight minutes to go, the Thrushes were hanging on to the lead with a narrow mar- gin. The visitors put renewed energy into their play. Sam was again showered with shots. Riley put the issue beyond doubt, and netted the equaliser. Final: Denbigh, 3 Chester, 3. I
