Football on the Coast. THE COAST LEcAGUEi TOURNAMENT. Owing to Colwyn Bay and Llanrwst having to re-play their game in the pre- liminary round of the Welsh Amateur Cup Competition and University College re- signed from the League only two matches were played in the Frst Division on Satur- day, i.e., Bangor Reserve v. Holyhead and Carnarvon v. Festiniog. The action the Varsity Club felt compelled to take is much regretted all along the Coast, and expression was given to that regret at a meeting of the League on Friday. From statements made by the Secretary it ap- pears that the sole reason for withdrawing was the financial one, and Mr D. F. Dargie, the president, made the club a generous offer of £ 5 to help wipe off the deficiency of last sea,son. The 'Varsity Club was given 14 days to re-consider their decision. Let us hope to again see the club battling for league points. CARNARVON IN FORM. The Canaries have been rather a long time getting into form this year, but have now been on the winning side two weeks in succession. Blaenau Festiniog away from home seldom put up a, good show, and they cut a sorry figure before, the Canaries at the harbour town on Saturday afternoon, especially in the second half, and were defeated by five goals to nil. PLEASANT GAME AT HOLYHEAD. The other game was between Holyhead and Bangor Reserves, both sides being strongly represented. Mr Yates, of Chester, was in charge of the game, which was a very pleasantly contested one. After the teams crossed over with the Bangor was a very pleasantly contested one. After the teams crossed over with the Bangor ians leading by one goal to nil a stubborn contest was witnessed, during, which the Bangorian's defence was subjected to a severe trial. Holyhead drew level after about fifteen minutes' play, but shortly before time Bangor forged head and were returned winners by two goals to one. » » THE SECOND DIVISION. Five matches were set down in the second division programme. The Llan- dudno Amateurs Reserves visited Colwyn Bay to pay the Celts, whom they had de- feated the previous Saturday by no fewer than seven goals to nii. The boot this time was on the other foot, for the home- sters playing better all round won by one goal to nil. At the same time the Llan- dudno Club was unfortunate in losing the services of Frank Roberts, whose knee gave way before half-time, and he took no further part in the game. The Reserves have yet to win their first League match. THE: OTHER GAMES. Bangor Juniors have considerably im- proved since they were defeated early in the season by Giasinfryu by seventeen goals to nil, and on Saturday put up a fair fight against Holyhead Reserves. They were, however, defeated on their own ground by three goals to one. Lleehid Swifts playing at home beat Glasinfryn by four goals to two, and Penmaenmawr defeated Menai Bridge by the same score. At Llanfairfechan the home team made a draw with Llandudno Junction, the scores being, three goals each. WELSH AMATEUR CUP. The "Roosters and Colwyn Bay played off their tie in the preliminary round of the Welsh Amateur Cup-Competitioii at Gwydyr Park, Llanrwst, on Saturday. The teams had met the previous Saturday at Oolwyn Bay Without a definite decision being arrived at. The 'Roosters took the lead after tweilve minutes' play, and not- withstanding some determined attacks by the Bayites held it to the end, and thus qualified to meet Llandudno Amateurs in the next round, for which they have choice of ground. The game is to be played on November 26th. WELSH SENIOR, CUP. Three matches in the preliminary round of the Welsh Senior Cup Competition were decided with the following results — Mold, 11; Denbigh 1. Brymbo, 3; Summerhill, 1. Flint, 2; Bagillt 2. NORTH WALES JUNIOR CUP. Bettwsycoed and Llandudno Junction Reserves met at Bettws to decide their outstanding game in the North Wales Junior Cup Competition. The Railway- men played the better football, especially in the second half, and won by five goals to two. FRIENDLY MATCHES. LLANDUDNO AMATEURS v. OSWESTRY ATHLETIC. Owing to Llanrwst and Colwyn Bay arranging to replay their tie in the pre- liminary round of the Welsh Amateur Cup Competitions the meeting of the Amateurs and Colwyn Bay in the League tournament had to be put off. F'ortunate- ly the Llandudno secretary was able to arange a match with Oswestry Athletic, which was played on the Council Field before a fair gate for a friendly. Llandudno Amateurs Stallard, (goal) J. H. Jones and Ben Morris (full backs); J. Brown, T. Johnson, and W Edwards (half-backs); J. E. Willams, D. Davies, W. T. Cleave, Harold Pearson, and Jim Williams (forwards). Oswestry Athletic H. Roberts (goal); W. Jarman and G. Jones (full backs); T. Parry, R. Groves, and W. Jones (half- backs) A. Arnold, Kynaston, W. H. Jones, A. Williams and J. Martin (for- j wards). The game calls for but little comment, for the home team held the upper hand throughout and eventually won by five goals to nil. The scoring was opened by Dan Davies from a pass by Jack Brown, Harold Pearson (who was operating at in- side left, vice R.. Davies indisposed) scored the second in a rather peculiar manner. The visitors' custod-ian rushed out to clear when Pearson was making straight for goal. The Llandudno player fell with the balll about a foot away so he rolled at it and gave it sufficient impetus to travel safely into the net. The third was scored by Cleave, who took a centre by J. E. Williams, cleverly round- ed the backs and gave the goalie no chance to save. Had the homesters played the game nn the second half a dozen goals might have been scored. As it was the game degen- erated into something of a, farce, members of the home team being more concerned to add to their own goal record than any- thing else. Jimmy Williams during, the later stages got in a few hot ones from the neighbourhood of the corner flag. J. E.. Williams was particularly anxious to score, and did get the ball through once, but the point was disallowed for impeding the goalkeeper, who by the way saved many times smartly. Stallard spent a great part of the second half lying at full length on the grass, either in the goal or near the half-way line. Two goals only were scored during the second half, one by Cleeve and the other by Cleeve and the visitors' full back jointly. BRIEF* RESULTS.

A meeting of the Council of the North Wales Coast Football Association was held on Saturday night, Mr H. Lloyd (Con- way) presiding. Referee Hersee reported Hughes (Glas- infryn) and -Davies (University) for strik- ing each other on Saturday la,st; he had to turn both players off the field. Davies, who appeared before the Committee, alleged that he was attacked by Hughes. The latter, who did not appear, was sus- pended for a month, Dav-ies being sus- pended for a week. Rhyl having played an unregistered man in the Junior Cup ma,tch on October 15th, was, on the pro- test of the Holywell, punished by the game being awarded to Holywell. Play- ers in the Junior Cup competition must not have taken part in any first division match of any 'league. On behalf of Pwll- heli, Mr Young stated that the Barmouth team had participated in matches under the Montgomeryshire League, and that they were duly warned before their Junior Cup match on October 1,5th.

Williams), with in- structions to uphold the Pwllheli protest if, in fact,, the Barmouth players had played under the Montgomeryshire League.
