COAST SENIOR LEAGUE. FESTINIOG v. LLANRWST. THE QUARRYMEN UNBEATEN AT HOME. STRAIGHT SPEAKING TO THE HOME COMMITTEE. (By INIGO.") In a cold, drizzling rain this match was played at the Newborough enclosure on Saturday. The home team were strongly represented, whilst in the ranks of the visi- tors were four reserves, Carter being absent from the back line, as well as France and Humphrey Roberts from the half line; as was also W. A. Williams from the line of attack. The teams were in charge of Re- feree Griffiths, of Penmaenmawr. Festiniog: Goal, Smith; backs, Tom Hughes and M. J. Morris; halves, Jim Lloyd, Will Jones, and W. H. Williams; forward, Bob Roberts, J. Hughes, W. J. Hughes, W. R. Owen, and Evan Lloyd. Llanrwst: Goal, Dick Jones; backs, J. P Williams and W. Trevor Jones halves, Henry Jones, R. D. Richards, and J. D Jones; forwards, Howell Roberts, D. Pryce Williams, W. T. Jones, D. R. Jones, and Arthur Richards. The Quarrymen instantly visited Jones, and a corner was gained. From an excel- lent centre Dennis Jones and Pryce Williams worked the ball to the centre of the field, where a severe struggle for possession was witnessed between Will Jones and the two left wingers, the attackers gaining posses- sion got down near Smith's charge, where Dennis Jones shot some yards wide of the post. From the goal kick the homesters, main- ly by the aid of Evan Lloyd and W. R. Owen, got in front of goal, a badly aimed shot rolling between the custodian's legs behind. The homesters kept up a spell of pressing, and for some minutes wild kick- ing in near proximity to the visitors' goal was the order of things. Several corners fell to the Quarrymen's lot, but the Roosters were on the alert and kept well on the de- fence, clearing dangerous shots time after time. A break away by A. Richards, Pryce Williams and Dennis Jones gave Richards a chance of an opening, Smith clearing a real stinger. No sooner had the leather been kicked than W. J. Hughes let fly at Dick Jones' charge, his effort going a trifle wide. The Quanrymen were still having test Dick Jones, shots pouring in from all directions, which the custodian coolly dealt with. R. D. Richards eventually relieved, and the game opened out at the other end, where 'Howell Roberts and W. T. Jones were seen racing at top speed, the latter sending in a final effort, which Smith just managed to scoop out. Pryce Williams attempted to repeat the dose, but his shot went wide'. The Roosters were at this period having a spell of the attack to their credit, with occasional rushes to Dick Jones' charge by the Quarrymen. One of these rushes saw the whole lime of the Roosters' defence defeated, Dick Jones clearing one of the best shots of the day at close range, and a moment later saw Dick Jones saving with several of the Quar- rymen upon him. He, however, stuck to the ball until the whistle had gone for ob- struction. Half time arrived with no score. The second half opened with the home -,ide pressing, Evan Lloyd being conspicu- ous with several good shots. Each time the ball struck the side of the net, J. P. Williams and R. D. Richards working might and main to keep off the attacks. Eventually a penalty was awarded the home side. T. Hughes took the kick and sent in a lightning shot, which Dick Jones had no chance of saving. From this to the end of the game the homesters continued to press, but failed to increase the score. Festiniog, 1 Llanrwst, o. COMMENTS. What work Smith had he did it well. The best of the backs was Morris, Jim Lloyd being the shining light of the half line, and Evan Lloyd and W. J. Hughes were de- cidedly the best in the forward line. Dick Jones, for the Roosters, had plenty of work and fulfilled it in fine style. J. P. Williams
