SATURDAY'S FOOTBALL.

SATURDAY'S FOOTBALL. Football on Saturday shewed a considerable improvement, although for the purposes of the game the weather was a trifle too warm. Chester visited Chirk, and a fast game resulted. The visitors opened strongly, and but for some fine saves by the Chirk custodian would have gone clean away. Then Chirk attacked, and after some stubborn play put on the first goal, the visitors' custodian being beaten by a long shot from James, the Chirk centre. Very shortly afterwards the Welshmen got the ball through twice, and at half-time led by three goals to none. The Cestrians exhibited plenty of staying power in the second half, and played up much better. They met with a fine defence, however, on only one occasion eould they get through. Thus they came away defeated by three goals to one, the game having been an interesting one. Altogether both teams shewed capital form, and the future of the Cestrians, in spite of Satur- day's defeat, which can be taken as one of the fortunes-or misfortunes-of war, seems rosy.— Northwich had a bad time of it with the Stoke team, on the ground of the former, being beaten to the tune of seven goals to two. The results of other Combination matches were :— Rock Ferry 4, Dresden 0; Wrexham 5, Druids 2; White Star Wanderers 4, Tranmere Rover's 2; Garston Copper Works 0, Crewe Alexandra 0. As was the case on the previous Saturday, the whole of the League clubs were engaged. Aston Villa journeyed to Nottingham, and there met the re-instated County club. On form, of course, a victory for the champions was practically assured, but it was not forgotten that when the clubs met in the second round of the Association Cup last season the Villa only won by two goals' to one, after Notts had been playing for some time with ten men. Notts on Saturday shewed that the confidence of their supporters was by no means misplaced. They led at half-time by two goals to one, and up to within a few minutes of the close appeared to have the game well in hand. Devey equalised matters, however, a minute from time, and in less than another half minute Cowan added the winning goal. The narrow escape of the Villa, following their narrow victory over West Bromwich Albion at Aston, suggests that their strength has been somewhat over-estimated, and that they will have to shew considerable improvement if they are going to equal their record of last year. Everton seem to be similarly situated. They commenced well by scoring a victory over Bolton Wanderers, but they were trounced by Derby County on Saturday to the extent of five goals to one. Everything, of course, pointed to the victory of the Liverpool club, despite the fact that whereas they had lost some of their prominent players, Derby, playing on their own ground, were able to practically put last season's team in the field, the only notable absentee being Robinson. Wolverhampton Wanderers failed to maintain the fine form they had displayed in their two previous matches, and lost to Sunderland by the margin of a goal. It was a creditable per- formance, however, considering that the Northerners had previously beaten Sheffield Wednesday at Olive Grove, and that they had the advantage of playing on their own ground. It quite justifies the hope of the Midlanders, in fact, that they will this season occupy a promi- nent position in the table. Blackburn Rovers and Notts Forest shew no improvement, but Bury have restored confidence by a victory over Sheffield Wednesday of three goals to nothing. Sheffield United beat Stoke, as they were expected to do, but at Anfield Liverpool were only able to make a draw of it against Preston North End.
