GOALS. 1 PORTH «. 2 | CARDIFF -.v. 0 j REMARKS. There is very little to be said for either side, individual play being out of the question. Mention, however, must be matie of Higgins and Jones for the winning lot, while McCreadie and Dr. Simmington were the pick of the Cardiff let. The game could not be classed as an exhibition of the Association game, being as it was far too one-sided. ST MARGARET'S v BROCKWEIR. Played on the St. Margaret's Ground in fine welther. There was a. fair number of spectators present. St. Margaret's kicked off, and play was rushed back into the Saints' quarters, and after a goal-kick and some pretty dribbling by the Rev. Crichton and Bain, the visitors were hard pressed, the Saints having very bad luck in not scoring with the fine kicks of RamsdtJe to back them up. A goal-kick for Brockweir brought relief, and they were playing ha.rd to get past half way when half time was called. The visibors restarted, the ball going to RmnaHalo who sent it to the Rev.
