FOOTBALL ON THE COAST. WELSH AMATEiUiR CUP COMPETI- TION. (Preliminary Round). The preliminary round of the Welsh Amateur Cup Competition was played on Saturday. Somewhat of a surprise, was created at Holyhead, where the homesters ie were defeated by Carnarvon by one goal to nil. The Llanrwst team visited Col- wyn Bay and put up so good a fight that honours were even at the close. Other re- sults in the same competition were — Acrefair, 3; Royal Welsh Warehouse 2 Summerhill, 1; Gresford, 0. Esclusham, 2; Gyfelia, 1. Rhos Rangers, 9; Druids Reserves, 0. 7Ç 7Ç 7õ NORTH WALES JUNIOR CUP. AMATEURS RESERVES BEAT COLWYN BAY CELTS. The Amateur Reserves were in a gjoal- getting humour on Saturday afternoon when pitted against the Colwyn Bay Celts in the first round of the North Wales Junior Cup Competition on the Council Fiald. The teams were constituted as fol- lows Llandudno Amateurs' Reserve R. Lunt (goal), R. T. Williams and J. H. Davies (backs), H. Davies, G. Davies (capt.), and W. Owen (half-hacks), W. F'. Shipley, J. M. Davies, R. Roberts, F1. Roberts, and J. Meredith (forwards). < Colwyn Bay Celts: D. Ll. Jones (goal); Ted Parry and Evan R. Jones ZD (backs); John Hughes, Llew. Roberts (capt.) and Wl T. Hoskins (half-backs); W. E. Jones, EI. Ri Jones, Ted Lunt, R. Jones:, and W. Jones (forwards). From the start it was evident that the visitors, although heavier, were no match for the nimble reserves, who tested the Celts' custodian with high shots and low shots at short intervals. The way the Re- serves made for the goal was very pleas- I ing, and results came as a matter of course. Morris Davies was the first to do the trick, Frank Roberts popped on number two and Bob of that ilk is be- lieved to have put the finishing touch to the third goal. Morris Davies wound up the first half by scoring the fourth goal. Previously R,. Lunt had saved magnifi- cently from a penalty kick and been call- ed upon now and then. Generally speak- ing, however, the ball was never far from the visitors' goal. The second half was rather more even- ly contested, especially the first quarter of an hour, but the homesters always ap- peared to hold the whip hand. Frank Roberts scored the fifth and sixth goals, 'n aind W. Owen (Settle) was responsible for the seventh from a corner kick. The visi- tors failed to respond, the game ending with the score Llandudno Reserves w. 7 Colwyn Bay Celts 0 v A FEW NOTES. The strength of the home team lay in the half-back, line, The skipper, George Davies, was much too good for the Celts, and W. Owen was scarcely ever beaten. In the first half he placed the ball very cleverly, and two of the, goals were dis- tinctly traceable to his placing. He fed off in the second half by trying to be too tricky. H. Daivies was not so prominent but very dogged. Lunt was safe, and weEI deserved the applause he got on sav- in from a penalty kick. R. TI. Williams was the safer of the two backs, but J. H. Davies is undoubtedly a youth of great promise. Of the forwards Frank Roberts and Meredith were the, pick,, the former having any amount of dash and his goals were beauties. Bob Roberts, another player with plenty of go" would be of in- finitely greater service to his side if he could keep a cooler head on his shoulders. Shipley and M. Davies were generally in evidence, and made up a quintette which should soon place the team higher un on the league table. .I. DISGRACEFUL SCENES AT PWLL- HELI. Barmouth and Pwllheli met at the lat- ter town, and some disgraceful scenes were witnessed: After a penalty had been awarded the visitors and saved the specta- tors broke on the field of play and there was a free fight. When that was quelled by the police, Bob Ellis, one of the home team, was ordered off the field. The visitors eventually won by two goals to nil, and the disorderly scenes were renew- ed at the close of the game, when an at- tempt was made to mob the referee. OTHER, RESULTS.
