BANGOB.—This match in the first round of the North Wales Coast Senior cup competition, was played at Carnarvon, on Saturday last, before a large gate.

FAlHIrIELD. -This match, in the third qualifying round of the English cup, was played at Flint, on Saturday, in favourable weather, and in the pre-ence of 800 spectators. The opening part of the game was fairly even, although a little rough, but towards the end of the firt-t half, and all through tLe second, the visitors asserted themselves, and won rather easily by four goals, to two. AMALGAMATION. A very satisfactory arrange- ment has been came t) between the Holywell and Scarlet Runner football clubs. A deputation from the latter club attended a meeting of the committee of the Holywell club, on Monday lat, to consider the most advisable course to pursue with regard to improving and betteriog both teams. After some consideration, it was decided to join hands, and the junior t am will now play at the Holywell Reserve. It wtis also deciied to play both teams in a trial match on Saturday next, so as to pick out the best eleven fur first honours. A COMPLIMENT TO A HOLYWELL HALF-BACK.— Although the Holywell football club, has had, so far, the poorest seaton on record, the football talent of the town is very credital ly reflected upon in the performances of Mr. J. R. Petrie, late of this clab, who has been earning golden opinions in the South of England. A correspondent of the Surrey 7imes, Nov. 2.; b, commenting upon the football match between Godalming and Weybridge, in the West Surrey league, remarks: Wbilz!t giving all due credit to the backs, I must not forget the valuable aid received from the halves, who to a man, played a fine game. Of the trio Petrie was perhaps the b?st. He is a pretty player with plenty of go' in him, and I cannot imagine why he is not played more often."—Now. Holywell, play up! Show that you have not forgoten how to play at home, and try to maii tain the rept ,ta,ion that Mr. Petrie has e.-taUi3hed fc,r m at Godahni-jg, and for which team be now plays centre-half. Gklknfiblo VILLA T. Buoklkt ENGINEERS. The above match was played at Greenfield on Saturday last, before a fair attendance. Owing to the Engineers' late arrival, only 35 minutes' play took place. Buckley kick-off ran the ball down, but the Greenfield baaks cl ar d in good style. The Green- field forwards gainng poi8essiou worked towards the tiis' goal and forced a corner, which w&a pla*- 7 J. W. Jones and turned to good account by 21 n •< i Jones. At tbis juncture Greenfield pressed hart..) the grand defence of the Buckley backs and keeper kept them from scoring. Eventually anc;i, i ruc-r accrued to Greenfield. This was well p!ac. jd GreeDfidd fcored goal number two. From i crntre kick Buckley worked down towards the Greenfield goal and scored, but the whistle had just gone for off-side. Half-time arriving with Greenfield, 2; Buckley, 0. On rc-starting Greenfield pressci, and J. W. Jones by a grand run soored a good goal. Final result: Greenfield, 3 Engineers, 0. MOLD RED STARS v, Holywsll,—These teams played a friendly mat;h at Mold on Saturday, when at interesting game was witnessed. Both elevens were fairly representative, aud from the kick-off the homa left were early in evidence and the Holywell custodian W38 called upon. In saving his change a corner was conceded and an exciting scrimmage ensued from which the Stars soored. Mold pressed considerably for a tillle. but without result. After which the St. W^ppfride representatives had a look il, b\\t Baker i. hauk and Morgan in goal were not to be trified with. Agaiu the homesters assumed the agrgessive with the risuit that before half time two more goals had heen placed to their credit. For some time af'er the r^rturt the Stars caused the Holywell deft acme anxiety and thrice experienced j-ontfh In-k in not scoring. They then fell off oon- aideiablv aud t'ia vi^t^r- who were shewing to bettei advantage succeeded in scoring a goal before the caill of tinl-, the final result thus being Mold, 3 goals; HJy well, 1 goal. Of the home crowd the centre forward and left wing were the best of the front rank, although the quintet have been seen to much great r advantage. The ticks played well, and Morgan in goal also acquitted himself creditably. Gordon Janes was of course the pick of the visiting ferwards, but he wai too closely shadowed by O'Niel to be really effe tive. Of the remainder of the team the right baf-k and goalkeeper played a hard and serviceable game,
