BRISTOL EAST v. SOUTH WALES LEAGUE. A DRAWN GAME. At the Cardiff Athletic Ground on Christmas morning, before 2,000 spectators in threatening weather. There were several alterations in the Lfague team, substitutes having to be found for Jones (Aberdnre), Littlehales (JRogerstone), Langley find Wright (ftbbw Vale), Jones (Rogerstone), and Williams (Porth). The vacancies were filled by Green (Barry), Parry (Porth), Richards (Cardiff Mackintosh), Thomp- son and Mitchell (Barry), and liiden (Cardiff Mackintosh). The Bristol team was as adver- tised. Mr Woodfield, Barry, refereed. Luther started for Bristol, the ball being sent to touch just beyond the quarter-line. Riden received from the throw in, and, out-pacing several opponents, sent in the first shot. From the kick-out the Welshmen attacked some smart forward play by Mitchell, King, and Riden, resulting in the latter trying with a long shot. Davies, however, cleared, and play was taken to the centre. From here the Welsh forwards got away, and Mitchell, given a high pass when close in, headed over the b»r. The Bristol forwards then for the first time visited Welsh quarters, but were quickly driven back by Picken, who kicke..1 down the field to Mitchell, who passed neatly to Riden. The latter shot for goxl, but Davies again saved. Up to now the League had done most of the attacking, button having little or nothing to do. Smart play by Cook, the visitors' centre half, then took play into the home quarters, and some capital patsing almost anded in a score. Fol- lowing this was some even play, and then King was again given a chance to show his shooting capabilities. This time he only had tho goal- keeper to evade, bat nevertheless shot wide. From the kick out the Welsh forwards broke away brilliantly, and after some fine passing MitcheU beat Davies with a splendid shot. fsoon after the re-start King made up for all his blunders by scoring a capital score from close in. Mitchell scored a third goal. Just before half-time the visitors were unfortunate in not scoring, the ball striking under the bur. They appealed for a goal, but without success. Half-time score: League, 3 goals; Bristol, nil. —King restarted for Barry, and play settled down in the centre, and for some time little of note occurred. The visiting forwards then played up considerably, and McKay, after tricking several men, beat button with a sting- ing low shot. Cook, who had up to now been playing a rattling good game, then dribbled to within close rang^ and scored goal number two. Resuming, the visitors rtgain went off, and some splendid passing was witnessed, Co \k and Luther being most conspicuous. About ten minutes before time Rudge received a pass on the right wing and scored with a beautiful shot. No further ecorirg took place, and the game ended in a draw of three goals each. # The match between the Barry Unionists and Pontardawe on Boxing Day attracted a large crowd to the Jubilee Field, Barry. In tbe previous matches this season between these teams, Barry have proved easy winners, but this time they completely outran their opponents, who were defeated by s:x goals to nil. » On Wednesday the Cadoxton United met the Barry Wednesdays at Cadoxton, and gave the \isitors a beating to the tuue of two goals to nil. Cannock and Burbidge scored.
