FOOTBALL, AND THE CHURCHES. NEW MOVEMENT AT HOLYHEAD. A gathering of footballers and others interested in athletic games was held at the Holyhead Town Hall on Sunday night, the large room being packed with an orderly crowd. The Chairman (Captain M'Kinstrv), who is the president of the Holyhead Swifts F.C., said that he could not understand why the impression had got abroad that footballers were outside the pale of the church, and he hoped the councillors who had objected to allowing the Town Hall to be used for this meet- ing would be converted by the orderly proceedings to a belief in the respect- ability of the followers of football. The meeting was adressed by the Rev. R. Jenkyn Owen, who bore testimony to the splendid behaviour of the players and spectators on the previous day in the match between Holyhead and Oswestry. The Rev. D. Lloyd and the Rev. D. J. Lewis also took part, appeals being made to keep football and other games free from gambling, bad language, and drinking. zn
