THE FOOTBALL FIELD. NOTES BY ATHLETB. ASSOCIATION. The first match of the year was played by the Unionists on the Buttrills <>n Saturday, their opponents being the new Cardiff Club. With the exception of two, the whole of the men in the home team played last season. # # • The new men are McLeish and Williams, both young and promising, and both school teachers, I believe. As centre forward, Williams acted the part of a hub, and he was closely watched by the crowd. • As this is the first game of the season, it, is fairer to criticise the team as a whole. None of the men shone, and it would have been better for them if they had had opponents who would have given them a good thrashing. Sutton deserves as much praise as anyone on the field. Occupying his old position at goal, he did his duty in a most effective way. Another promising junior, Percy Jones, showed to ad- vantage, and he was well supported by Parry and McL/eish at half. # ♦ Green, Mitchell, Williams, Stephens, and Sheldon made a very bold front, and only needed a powerful enemy to bring out their hidden qualities. The backs were Green and Cash, who made splendid defence. These two are not easily beaten. The score, four to nil, fells something, but might deceive. Both teams want good practice, and it is not until they enter a League match that their good parts will be seen. # Barry will have plenty of practice before entering their first serious match on October 12, for the Welsh Cup. The following Saturday is the first League match with Aberaman. ♦ The Unionist will play Porth in the first round for the Welsh Cup on or before October 12th, Porth having choice of ground. The Barry Dock Albions and Barry County School met on the ground of the latter. E. Williams started the ball for the County School, who, before they could get away, were nicely stopped by F. Davies. After some loose play Evan Jones scored for the School. Stung by this reverse the Albion s played up grandly, and close on half-time, after a fine rush by the forwards Dooley, amidst great cheering, scored for the Albions. The Albionr f rwards soon showed their superiority over the School, but the grand play and defence of the backs kept them back. The Albions were pressing most of the second half, and if it was not for plucky County Sehool goal-keeper's good play, they must have scored heavily. Towards the close the School livened up, but to no purpose, and the mateh enoed in i -raw of one goal each. This was the hardest and best match ever played on the School ground, adds my young correspondent. The Cadoxton Rovers and Roath Park Wes- leyans met in a League encounter at Cadoxton. The first half was unproductive, but in the second, with the slope in their favour, the home men scored twice—Gould and Johnson-which left them winners by two to nil. # # The Rovers feel confident of being at least runners-up on the League table. # Another League fixture was that between the local Juniors and Wood-street Congregational. The Juniors proved themselves a strong team in this match, scoring seven goals to two. The team played a good combination game. ♦ Other matches in the district were played on Barry Island, between the local team and the Barry Crescents. This ended in a draw, and at Cadoxton, between the local Moorlands and Gladstone Villa. The politicians were com- pletely run over, and the Moorlands scored eight goals to nil. RUGBY. Dinas PowiM gave a healthy display of the Rugby code on the Common on Saturday. Their opponents was Penarth Old Boys, and their age told dreadfully against them. Although the game opened irregularly and play proceeded haphazardly, the combatants soon settled down to definite work. # D. Thomas and Gay made some good spurts on the home side, Thomas excelling himself on more than one occasion. His first try was an excellent performance, and as be dropped over the line, the crowd responded with a cheer. ♦ ♦ Next Saturday the Penarth men play the Cardiff Seconds. To beat that team, which is considered much superior to Diuas Powis, a mighty improvement will be necessary in Penarth but if anything will bring about victory defeat will. Penarth's defeat on Satur- day is likely to spur them on to great things when facing Cardiff. ♦ c- A goal and a try were scored in the first half, and in the second 15 points were added. The frequency of the attack demoralised the visitors, and a good opening game ended in a victory for Dinas by 23 points to three. • The Barry Wednesday team are advertising for fixtures. I hope they will have a good season, for good fortune drags everyone after it, as misfortune finds no sympathy. It is a most unsatisfactory state of things which cannot pro- duce a good local Rugby team, seeing that a large porI iOll, if not the majority, of adults here are Rugby supporters, who speak in no measured terms about the Northern Soccer game.
