DOLGELLEY VOLUNTEERS v BARMOUTH TOWN. This fixture was played on Saturday at Dolgelley in extremely unfavourable weather, the rain coming down in torrents. It was mutually agreed, under the circumstances, to play only half-au-hour each way. At 2 30 a start was made under the leader- ship of Staff-Sergt Rusher, Wrexham. Teams :— VOLUNTEERS. Goal, L-Cpl Arnfield backs, Cpl Owen and Pte R L Pugh forwards, Cpl James, Pte Edwards, L- Cpl Roberts, T J Edwards, and W L Edwards. BABMOUTH. Goal, L Edwards backs, D Williams and Robert Davies; half-backs, J Griffiths, G Pryce, and E Griffiths; forwards, H Daries, Griffiths, W R Jones, W Griffiths, and D Richards. The game opened out in brisk style, the Volun- teers making dashing attempts to get away. Bar. mouth seemed all at sea. They were unable to stand the pressure, and in less than 10 minutes the Volunteers were two goals ahead. They kept it up and after some good work on the right Cpl James added a third with a clinking shot. There was not much accurate play to be seen, the drenching rain making things very uncomfortable for the players. The soldiers, however, pegged away in ding-dong style and got another goal after some exceptionally good work. Barmout h made strong efforts to reduce the heavy adverse balance, but the Volun- teer defence was very souud and easily kept them out, Arnfield having a very soft time indeed. After the change of ends they appeared to have a better share of the game but when they got within measurable distance they invariably kicked wide or over, the shooting being very poor. A fifth goal was added by Pte Ellis, and the game was all over bar shouting. The visitors' quintette deserve a word of praise for their repeatedly plucky attempts to alter matters, but the less said ahout the defence the better. The goalkeeper too was unsafe, though the greasy ball made things very difficult for him, but the chief weakness lay in the half-back division and to them must be attributed the result, which WAS iiuuuj r Barmouth, nil.
