Football. WELSH SENIOR CUP. LLANDUDNO AMATEURS v. CARNARVON UNITED. SECOND REPLAY. HANDSOME WIN FOR THE AMATEURS. (By" Vigilant. The second replay of the Welsh Senior Cup- tie between the Cormorants and Canaries at Llandudno, on Tuesday, was looked for- ward to with more than ordinary interest. What was wanted to make the event a de. lightful one from a spectator's point of view- was good weather. This prevailed, with the exception of a strong breeze which blew down the field from the sea end goal. There was a splendid attendance, amongst which were some hundreds from Carnarvon, and the Canary supporters alone snorted the green colours of their favourites. THE THIRD TIME OF ASKING. It will be fresh within the memory of our readers that the first match in this cup-tie resulted in a draw of two goals each, whilst the replay at Carnarvon, on a Thursday, in a veritable quagmire, ended in another draw after an extra half-hour's plav, of a goal each. Tuesday was the day to settle the matter, and the Amateurs managed it in a manner that quite charmed their supporters, for the struggle was one of great merit on the part of Llandudno, and the 'Chers were value for many more goals than those which found their billet. The gate amounted to close upon {'2n1 and right from the kick off excitement grew intense, particularly on the part of the Canary supporters, who had come to the fny with full conlidence of victory. Stentorian shouts rent the air when it was found that the Canaries had won the toss, end played with the breeze behind tlie.it. JOHNNIE JOXES OPENS THE SCORING. It was not long ere the Canaries had 'ot in front of Stallard, and after some scrambling play in front of Stallard. he was defeated by what may be termed a gift shot from Johnnie Jones. This caused the 'Chers to put on pressure. and for fully ten minutes they kept the Canaries in their own quarter, despite the strong brceze prevailing, and Carnarvon were distinctly Iuclcy in being able to stave off the various shots which were sent in to G. H. Jones. By a burst down the ilel(l, the Canaries got in front of Stallard, and Tom Johnson, missing his kick, let in Hugh Ro- berts. who scored with the ball cannoning otl another plaver. Creat shouts of delight greeted tins disrinctlv IIlC, goal, but .suli it counted. ♦ DAN, THE ARTFUL. OPENS THE 'CHERS' SCORE. Nothing daunted, and having had as much of the game as their rivals, though plaving under adverse circumstances, the home side put on some refreshing bursts. Litt!e Tim, or rather Dan Leno, was all agog for a score, and he managed it after some excellent work by his colleagues, in a manner that raised the enthusiasm of the home supporters to a fine pitch. A capital game, in the first halt, I ended in the Canaries leading bv two goals to one. v- DAN REPEATS HIS PERFORMANCE AND F;OUAL!SFS. Playing with the bree/e behind them, it was not long before the 'Chers made things hum, although Walter Jones, on one occa- sion, sent in a teaser of a grounder which Stallard saved finely. A spell of pressure by the 'Chers saw some narrow and exciting squeaks in front of G. H. Jones. The 'Chers could do everything but place the ball in the net. However, Dan Davies, who was play- ing a marvellous game, forced an opportunity, and beat Jones, making things equal. There was tremendous cheering at the performance. CLEEVE GIVES THE I.EAD. Continuing their excellent display, the Amateurs put the Canaries defence to a very severe test, and several corners fell to Llan- dudno, from one of which Cleeve gave Llan- dudno the lead with a well-judged header. j Bob Davies added the fourth and fifth amidst a scene of the wildest jubilation.
