Football. WBEXHAM GYMNASIUM V. liOLYWELL RKSKBVES.— The above tie in the semi-final of the Junior Cup, was played at Mancott football ground, on Saturday last, before about 600 spectators. Wrexham won the toss and played with the wind, and scored three goals in the first half. On changing ends the ball was continually kept in the Wrexham goal, but the Holywell team played so recklesly that they had, at the call of time, to retire vanquished by four goals to one.—The Holywell team lost their chance of the medals through playing too selfish a game. The referee was Mr. Smith of Wrexham. HOLYWELL v. FLINT. The above local rivals met on Easter Monday at Holywell in their friendly return game. The weather was all that could be desired and about 900 spectators lined the ropes. Flint won the toss and chose to play down hill and with a blazing sun at their backs. Five minutes after the advertued time R. Jones kicked off for Holywell, who soon made headway towards the Flint goal, and had hard lines in the first minute. The goal kick opened play, and the Flint forwards were robbed by the home halves, who transferred play to the Flint end. Holywell forwards kept the game in hand for a short time and should have notched a point or two. The Flint forwards were soon on the attack and after a scrimmage not far from the Holywell goalmouth, the Flint inside right found an opening with a sood low shot, m about 10 minutes from the start, which effort was received with applause by the large muster of Flint spectators. The centre kick resulted in some good play on both sides, the ball travelling from end to end without any advantage Flint pressing, gained a corner which was cleared, and the leather was soon transferred to the other end. Gordon Jones, although (as usual) closely watched, made some good runs. Holywell forwards had hard lines in not scoring having the ball nearly on the line and the Flint custodian having to leave hie post to clear. Flint came again and W. Davies just missed scoring by shooting a bit wide. The game, which had been very fast became slower and better foot- ball was seen. Flint at times showing very nice combination. Half-time arrived with the score FLINT, 1; HOLYWELL, 0. After the usual interval, Bartley started for Flint who were at once in the Holywell quarters and Foster Williams was called upon early in the game J. Jones relieved with a good kick, and the home forwards made for the Flint goal, but were repulsed by the brothers Lloyd. During this half both goals had narrow escapes, and two or three corners were fruitless, and at the call of "time" a most keenly sontested game ended in favor of Flint, the score being FLINT, 1; HOLYWELL, 0.
