FOOTBALL NOTES. By Veteran, The visit of the Reserve team of the Llandudno Amateurs to Holyhead on Saturday afternoon does not appear to have been by any means a pleasant out- ing. The spectators had made up their minds that Llandudno was the team which should not be given any encouragement, and commenced booing the players from the moment they came out of the station. Then it was stated that they had not only to play Llanberis and the hostile specta- tors, but the referee in addition, which is a- very strong statement to make. The result of the match was the defeat of the Amateurs by three goals to two, but as a protest has been entered as to the legality of one of the goals they are not yet out of the competition. The goal disputed was one scored from a penalty, the facts as related by the Llandudno players and supporters who accompanied the team to Holyhead being that one of the linesmen signalled that the ball was out of play. Lunt picked up the ball to place it for a goal kick, and in so doing infringed the hand long rules and the ioftence having been committed within the i penalty area ihe referee imposed the maximum penaJty. The Llandudno players of course ob- jected, and the referee consulted the linesman, who denied having signalled the ball out of play. The penalty kick was taken and the scores made equal. The referee (Mr Lloyd Williams) has, it is stated, admitted that a mistake was made, but as the general rule appears to be that once a. goal has been allowed the decision is final. It is hard lines on the Reserves for they would probably have won but for that regrettable mistake. Llandudno appears to be left out in the cold this year by the Coast Association Committee, the members of which appear 4 jig to have a decided leaning towards Bangor for the finals of the different compeiti- ti'ons. It is notorious that the Bangor ground is about the most unsatisfactory on the Coast on account of his size, so why the Committee should persist in hav- ing such important matches declared there is difficult to understand, unless the members are more concerned about the amount of gate money than they are about anything else. The clubs left in the Senior Cup Com- petition are Flint and Pwllheli, and in the Junior Bagillt and Llanberis. Both these matches are to be played at Ban- gor, but how the Association can justify their choice of ground is one of those that passes understanding, if being a member of an Association means that one club has an equal claim on the things the Asso- ciation has to bestow as another. One does not wish to unduly labour the point, but it would be interesting to know why a member of the committee who re- sides in Llandudno should give his cast- ing vote against his own town when the venue of the re-played Flint-Bangor semi-final was decided. The ground selected was Colwyn Bay, about which ground I doubt if a fifth of the members knew anything, for it had only been occupied by the Club for a couple of weeks. SATURDAY'S RESULTS.
