---.-.. Festiniog versus Llanrwst.I


Festiniog versus Llanrwst. STRAIGHT SPEAKING TO THE HOME COMMITTEE. To the Editor ot The Weekly A 'ens. Sir,iii the report of the above football League match given in your issue of the 9th inst., Inigo makes a grievance about the language and abuse of a certain individual towards the" reporters." According to Inigo," it appears that the Festiniog Com- mittee knowingly acquiesce in disreputable language and behaviour amongst the specta- tors. To this I give the most emphatic contradiction. Inigo himself must surelv be aware that the Committee do everything possible to put a ban upon this unsportsman- like behaviour. Towards half-time, in the above match, Mr. Chambers, of the Pioneer, complained to me about some person who subjected him and others to some abuse and foul and that" Inigo," of the Werh.lv Xws, would point him out to me. I went as far as Inigo," and asked him if he would point out this person to me, and I also related to him Air. Chambers' complaint. Inigo replied that he had made no com- plaint, that he had no complaint to make, and if Mr. Chambers had complained, he had better come and point out this person himself. "Inigo," hy his curt refusal and denial, thereby knowingly, encouraged what what he expects others to disallow, even be they ignorant of the misconduct. In your isslie ot September 17th, 1909, inigo," in his report of the game plaved between the same two teams, comments I cannot close the account without complimenting the Fes- tiniog spectators for their sportsmanlike be- haviour during the game, Arc." lean assure Inigo and all others, that I do all in mv power to check all misconduct, and that I am wholeheartedly backed by the rest of my Committee, and I believe that a great deai of credit is due to the Committee in their perseverance in this respect. I appeal to lnigo," and to all, to assist us in this.—Sincerely yours, RICHARD MORRIS (Chairman Festiniog Towvn-road, Blaenau Festiniog, 12th December, 1910.
