THE WELSH CJP. FOURTH ROUND. ABERDA.RE v. KNIGHTON.—At Aberdare. The home team gained five corners in etn minutes, but they did not prove advantageous until Reed scored from a centre by M'Kiernan. A second goal was gained by Parker. Knighton were easily beaten, and, despite a few brave efforts by Cooper and Evans, they seldom placed Aber- dare in difficulties. Wedlock added the third. On change of ends Wedlock, Parker, Grant, and Ingham scored. Result: Aberdare, 8; Knigh- ton, 0. RHYL v. BANGOR.-At Rhyl. Play started fast, Bangor almost scoring, but Jones saved grandly, and at the interval there was no score. On the change of ends Rhyl attacked furiously. Jenkins had hard lines, and T. Williams grazed the bar. From a pass by Roberts, Jenkins net- ted the ball, but the point was disallowed. Im- mediately afterwards T. Williams scored. Re- EUlt ;-Rhvl, 1; Bangor, 0. WREXHAM v. WELLINGTON. — At Wrexham. Gordon scored for Wrexham in the first half, and early in the second Davies added a second goal, while a third point followed from a penal- ty kick. Wellington failed to make any re- sponse. Result: W rexham, 3; Wellington, 0. DRUIDS v. OSWESTRY UNITED. This Cup tie took place at Wynnstay Park, Ruabon, on Saturday, before a good gate. The teams had met before on this ground in a Com- bination match, when.the United defeated the Druids by a goal to nil. The result of the tie was therefore awaited with keen interest. A large number of supporters accompanied the United by the excursion train from Oswestry. A crowd of spectators viewed the match from the grand stand," from which they had a good view of the game free gratis. Mr Web- ster, of Chester, was the referee, and the teams were as follows — DRUIDS. Goal, Weslev; backs, Lloyd and Phillips; half-backs, T. Davies, W. Jones and W. Davies forwards, A. Jones, Hughes, J. Davies, E. Wil- liams, and Butler. OSWESTRY. Goal, C. Parry; backs, W. Jarman and H. Jones; half-backs, Hampson, Davies, and R. Morris; forwards, D. Jones, Morgan, Walker, T. Parry, and A. Jarman. The game started a few minutes late, Oswes- try having to face a strong sun, and the Druids kicking up the slope. The game opened at a rare pace. An incursion by the United was checked, and Butler, showing a rare turn of speed, was soon at the Oswestry end, but over- run the ball. Following a free-kick, Jarman saved his charge by heading away, Hughes re- turning the ball wide of the mark. Oswestry got down the bank, when Phillips relieved pres- sure with a strong kick, and at the other end Butler topped the crossbar with a warm shot. The United then went strongly and showed splendid passing. A. Jarman got in a nice swinging shot and Wesley diverted the ball by giving a corner, and from this Tom Parry head- ed a goal for Oswestry 12 minutes from the start amid great cheering. From the centre- the centre-kick the Druids swooped down on the United goal, but C. Parry was on the alert and fisted away, Oswestry getting away but were pulled up for off-side. The Druids essayed an- other attack by Herb. Jones, Davies, and Jar- man, especially the latter, who played a grand game. Parry and Walker got through, and a corner was conceded Oswestry from which Wes- ley was called upon twice in succession. The Druids' centre led an attack on the visitors' goal, but H. Jones dispossessed Jones nicely, and the scene of operations was removed to the Druids' end, when D. Davies with a return shoi placed the ball over the bar from long range. The Druids came up the slope smartly, when Dick Morris cleared and Oswestry forced an- other corner. Tom Parry headed the ball in, but Wesley was clearing when he was fouled, and a free kick was given against Oswestry, but no advantage to the Druids accrucl. The Druids were peisistent in their efforts, and the forwards wore well supported by the halves, while the backs kicked strongly and cleared well, especially Phillips. Jones tested Parry with a hot shot but Parry fisted into touch. Back and fore the ball travelled, but Oswestry had the best of matters, the defence being very good. Tom Parry drove the ball well into goal but Jones was offside when he received the ball. The Druids were next prominent in the attack, and a fruitless corner resulted. The Druids' right got close in, but W. Jarman headed the ball away twice in succession and then Tom Davies shot the ball wide. Oswestry having paid a visit to the Druids' goal, C. Parry was next called upon to handle. The interval ar- rived with Oswestry leading by a goal to nil. Playing down the slope, the Ancient Britons at- tacked hotly, and the United defence had plen- ty of work to cope with. W. Jarman showed up to advantage in tackling and clearing. Butler on. the Druids' left was very troublesome and should have received closer attention. From a scrimmage C. Parry saved by giving a corner which came to nothing, H. Jones clearing. Mor- gan got away but was brought down, and a free kick was awarded against the Druids, but when the kick was taken the United were put off-side. The Druids continued to make things hum, and seemed determined to score. A couple of corn- ers fell to them, but neither was improved upon. Following an attack by the Druids the ball was banged across the goal mouth and several play- ers missed the ball, the Druids missing a grand chance of scoring. Another fruitless corner tell to the Druids, David Davies clearing. The United then broke away, Morgan and Jones taking the ball along. Phillips, however, clear- ed, and Butler and E. Williams transferred play. Williams put in a good shot, and C. Parry sav- ed well. He fisted the ball away, and Herb. Jones put it over the touch line. Just now Os- westry could not get far beyond the halfway line, being placed offside. The Druids renewed the pressure, but C. Parry, Jarman, and their colleagues presented a sound defence. At length the United defence had a respite, Jar- man and Tom Parry and Walker taking the ball to the other end, when Lloyd kicked the bail out. From the throw in, the Druids cleared their lines and gith away, C. Parry again sav- in «. The United now showed up and attacked. Davies put the ball into goal; there was a scrimmage, but Wesley cleared. The bail was returned, and the Druids gave a penalty, and Tom Parry made no mistake in planting the ball in tne net, about 10 minutes from the final. Play now was of an even nature, and towards the end Oswestry attacked and the ball was again netted, but no goal was allowed, the goal- keeper being impeded before the ball was net- ted. The final then came with the result—Os- westry, two goals; Druids, none.
WELSH AMATEUR CUP. THIRD ROUND. LLANDINAM v. NEWTOWN NORTH END. These teams met at Llandinam on Saturday to decide who should enter the fourth round of the above competition. There was a fair num- ber of spectators present and a good game was anticipated. Woolley won the toss for Llandin- am and decided to place his men to face the sun. G. Humphreys set the ball in motion, and North End soon made tracks for the home goal, but fouls were given against Smout for interfering with Griffiths. The free kick did not sail far away, for E. Morgan secured and sent out to J. Miller, from whom Griffiths brought off a good save. North End kept up the pressure, but Woolley and More together with Griffiths defended well, and saved all at- tempts at the expense of a fruitless corner. A Evans next got away for Llandinam, but was fouled by Forster when he was going well. The frea kick however, was not awarded, and Hamei securing shot a trifle high. Through a poor kick by More, Jones nearly got through for North End, Griffiths saving a swift shot. Off- side against North End relieved the homesters, and T. Hughes was about to shoot when Stokes took hold of him just outside the penalty area. J. Davies was next prominent for the homesters and was responsible for some neat and clever football. Smith however was too late to receive his pass and North End came away from a good drive by E. Morgan, and Miller shot miserably from close range. A united effort on the part of the homesters brought them to the other end where they forced a corner which was not im- proved upon, Pennington fisting away nicely. Llandinam were again getting dangerous, and from a free kick given against Stokes a scrim- mage ensued, but Pennington was between tne posts and cleared twice in quick succession, i. Hughes and A. Evans had hard lines soon after with two splendid shots. J. Jones and G. Hum- phreys got going for North End and seemed as though they would find the net, but the latter crave to Miller who was ruled off-side. A foul against Smith was unwelcome to the homesters, and Forster placed nicely. A. N. Other receiv- ed and tried hard to convert, turning the ball nicely over his head only inches wide of the mark. Hamer and Thomas got away for Llan- dinam, the latter giving to Hughes near in whose shot was sailing well for the net when C. Smith turned it into the corner of the net well out of Pennington's reach. Soon after this the North Enders had an excellent opening to equalise, but J. Jones shot wide. Smout soon after sent in a good shot from near the corner flag which struck the side net. Llandinam got away but E. Evans returned, and E. Manuel in trying to clear conceded a corner, which proved fruitless. North End kept up the pressure a little now, and' A. N. Other equalised with a low shot. Play now became fast and exciting, both ends being visited in turn until half-time, J. Davies and E. Manuel being especially conspicuous for Llandinam. No more goals were added and nt the interval both teams had scored once. ()n resuming Llandinam were first to come within any dangerous range, and T. Hughes sent in a splendid shot which struck the upright. The homesters forced a corner, but Pennington sav- ed. Llandinam kept up the pressure, and Hamer put in a good shot from a pass by Thomas, which Pennington saved in a masterly z, y fashion. North End broke away, but E. Manuel returned, Pennington saving again from T. Hughes. J. Jones got away for the North End, but was fouled by Woolley. The free kick, how- ever, brought no result save a fruitless corner. Smith and Hamer got going well, but z_l Stokes cleared at the critical moment when a ^cal seemed certain. Llandinam kept up the oressure and gave the visiting defence some warm work to do. Pennington brought off a marvellous save from Woolley for which he was loudly cheered and applauded. Hamer soon after had hard lines with an excellent attempt. ,if t Pennington, Stokes, and Forster were at this stage playing a very fine defensive game, arid were well tried, Pennington especially doing ex- ceedingly well and brought off some wondeiful saves. Hands against A. Evans put the home- sters on the defensive for a little while, and Griffiths brought off a good save from Smout, which W. Manuel received and drove well away. Pennington again came to the rescue and saved a good attempt by Hamer with a high shot, and later from A. Evans. North End broke away, but Smout's effort only brought off a fruitless corner, his shot gliding off Woolley behind who tried to bead away. Miller now changed his position, he failing to make any headway against J. Davies, who was too good for him, and came from outside rigirt to inside right. Soon after this change ho made a good run, and after beat- ing More had no one in front of him save Grif- fiths, whom he had no difficulty in beating. .From the centre kick the homesters failed to ,I come away for E. Morgan secured and drove up and G. Humphreys and Miller going nicely the latter player scored the third point. The two last goals were scored in the last three minutes. Result: Newtown North End, 3; Llandinam, 1. LLANDINAM. Griffif-lis backs, Woolley and More halves, W. Manuel, E. Manuel, and J. Davies forwards, Thomas, Hamer, Smith, Hughes, and Evans. NEWTOWN NORTH. END. Goal, Pennington backs, Forster and W. M. Stokes halves, Evans, Morgan, and Thomas forwards, Miller, Jones, Humphreys, Smout, and .1\. N. Other. Referee, Mr H. Smith, Welshpool.

->t> HOCKEY. WELSHPOOL v. CHIRBURY.—Played at Welsh- pool on Saturday. The home team won the toss and elected to play uphill. Chirbury forced the play right from the bully off, and scored twice in the first five minutes. Afterwards, chiefly through the exertions of Dr Mence, Welshpool gained a goal, but before the whistle blew for half-time two more were added for the visitors. On restarting, Chirbury again assert- ed their superiority, and good play by the for- wards resulted in Shaw adding a. fifth goal, and three more were recorded for Chirbury before the call of time. One of these was gained by Miller, who from a bully off on the "25" made a brilliant run right through and scored. The game resulted in a win for the visitors by eight goals to one, their victory being chiefly due to the dashing play of the forwards. The latter stage of the game was marred by an unfortunate accident to —e Welshpool left back. who fell and broke his collar bone. His injury was promptly attended to by Dr Mence who was playing for the Welshpool team. PORTMADOO v. U.C.W. The College men journeyed to Portmadoc with a weakened team. The match wns played on the Portmadoc Athletic Grounds. On their arrival the visitors Were asked fo play immediately, owing to the fact that one of the Portmadoc players was to ploy in a Welsh Amateur Cup tie match later in the afternoon. The home team won the toss and elected to play against snn and wind. After the bully-off pl&y waged pretty evenly, but, it was quite evident that the players were in for a very fast game. After a few exchanges some good work was done by the College right wing and the home backs were hatd pressed. This pressure was kept up for some time and eventually a great deal of (the play veered round to the left wing, and owing to sterling play by the visiting; hacks the boll waf kept for about ten minutes within the home twenty-five. The continued efforts of the Aberystwyth men to score were at hast successful, when Evans scored after the goalkeeper had partially e'eared a shot fiom 331 lis. From this to half-time Portmadoc made some fine rushes down the field but owing to the splendid defence of the College bicks they were unable to shoot. Hall-tune was called with no addifion to the score. On the resumption of the game the visitors were hard pressed, and were it not for the fine, clean hitting of Lewis and Jones the visiting citadel would Lave been in extreme danger. However, this at ack was repuhed, and the homesters were penned within their own half for several minutes. Relief was brought to them by Wilson, their centre- forward, who broke through and nearly scored. Shortly after some excellent work he succeeded in equalising. Both sides now made supreme efforts to win and the homesters t1lrde some ugly rushes toward* their opponents' goal, bnt Jewell saved splendidly and the eaptain also fli-i some excellent work in the way of eleadng. Dyson t >wtirds the close of the game bad extremely bnrd lines in not scoring. Nothing of any noto oceurtvd afterwards and the game ended in a draw of one goal each. Coming to a short criticism of the game, it must bo said thni, the College team phycd a s pie '.did game against aich a good team as Portmadoc were. Perhaps the strongest part of the visiting team was their defence, who geneially always did what was expected of them. The ret un match to be played at Aberystwyth is being looked forward to with great interest since the College hoys are intent upon winning that game.—U.C.W. teatn M. F. S. Jewell; Sid Jones and J. M.
