FOOTBALL. SWIFTS v. LIVERPOOL RESERVE. COMBINATION. This match was played at Liverpool in climatic conditions most suitable to this ideal pastime. The outcome of this visit was a foregone conclusion; it was merely a question of how many goals. The ult-seven goals to none-is not a creditable performance, although it might have feeen worse. The fact that Skipper Hughes was unable to don the jersey must, of course, be made allowance for. His namesake at half played a champion game, whilst the old veteran Malcolm Hersee in goal was a treat; indeed* with one notable exception, the team played ft good game, and one is not surprised to learii that a certain player was offered a positioa in the Liverpool team. The Swifts have to,meet Bangor on Saturday, on the home ground it is to be hoped that the Skipper and Malcolm Hersee will be available. Bangor have come on a lot since the first meeting this season, and are bound to give a good account of themselves. SWIFTS RESERVES v. FLINT RESERVES. WELSH JUNIOR CUP. "W' This, the first round of the Welsh Cup-tie, was played off on the homf ground, before an attendance that would have been consider- ably lessened had those who did attend known what an exhibition they were to be treated with. The visitors have my heartiest sympathy in their defeat on the day's play they thoroughly deserved win their com- bination in the last twenty minutes of the game was worthy of m&ny a first team. During the whole of tjie first forty-five minutes, the Swifts, by aheer weight alone, kept their opponents defence, and, aided by the wind, literacy bombarded the goal, and yet, thanks to the backs and cus- todian, half-time arrived lyith a clean sheet, and this in spite of a perifelty given against them. The second half was more evenly con- tested, the Swifts gainwg an undeserved victory by 2 goals to 1. ;f The officials on the field: were anything but edified by the exhibition, ind no doubt some drastic changes will be thl result. I abstain from specially naming a-<single player for oph play, but I shoulqJ. say one, at least, will have been paid off 9re this. Lunt, H. Williams, Welch, Roberts,jHughes, and a new player unknown to me, the pick of a poor lot. The little chapfe from Flint need not be discouraged, and had the homesters allowed the game to end in a draw, the visit to Flint would have been thorough defeat for the Swifts, judging frqø last Saturday's form. ? -),
