The cap fights are over, during which time soma of oar Flintshire league teams have been busy, no much eo that the Isafue fixtures have been neglected. The following are the honours won by the League teams Welsh Amateur Cup-Buckley Engineer". Flintshire Challenge Oup-Backley Engineers. Flintshire Charity Cap-Hawarden Bridge. Flintshire Leagae Championship-Oak Alyn. St. Martin's uup—Oak Alyn. North Wales Coast Junior Cup-Rbyl Vice. Nurch Wales Coast League-Rhyl Vios. With aH these honours, it will be noticed that siime of TBH teams have not been honourable enough to finish the programme theystarted in September I Adt. What is the reason of this, here it is, the secretaries of each olub constitute the exeoutive. Two teams ara to play on a Saturday; one secretary suddenly finds out that his best player cannot play that day he wires his vis-a-vis, and referee, and the deed is done; the league seoretary, who should have first notice, gats it at a later date. Matters ire eaade right at the executive, and other datem arrau god, bat these dates are filled up generally with cap ties and re-plays, with the result that the Flintshire Leagae fixiuves are shelved, and the table presents a miser- able eight as shown above. « The remedy! Here it is in a very few words: A heavier deposit to be imposed on teams in both leagues, say at least £ 3; five or seven iinfluential gentlemen representing the distriots in whioh the clubs are to form the executive; all olubs to have fulfilled a certain number of matches b fore the doxe of the first fouv months, a penalty to be inflioted for neglect. With these amendments added to the present management, the Fiintshire Leaguj would be a power to ooutend with in thot district. < < Just fancy, two teamis-Buckley and Brymbo— being allowed to compete in the final tie on Saturday last, for the Flintshire League Challenge Cup, they not having, on the last Saturday of the season, ful- filled the requirements of the League. How is it that this was allowed ? < < Here is another grievance Greenfield were due at Penymynydd, a few weeks ago, they had arranged to make the journey, but were informed that the Penymynydd team could not play them: still this team appears at Oak Alyn, and get beaten by thiee goals to none. Why conld not this team appear on other grounds ? This leads me to another such case in Division II. More than a month ago Oaergwrle and Hawarden sent ia their notice of withdrawal from the league. The withdrawal of these teams had something to do with the championship, so the Executive refused the withdrawals. Holywell Vias. have made appeals to Caergwrle to fulfil their return fixture, they also tried to arrange dates with Hawarden, bat raild. These two teams were in a sense' dead to the foobtaU world,' but on Saturday last, to the surprise of all (?) the Hawarden team awaken at Gwersyllt, and get a @logging of seven goals to none. I leave it hare, still more strongly advocating a change in the appointment ot exeoutive. < There is no one who deplores this state of things more than the genial leagae searetaty-ur Millar. The fact of the matter is, he is too lenient with those referees and aeorataries who fail to report the result of their matches. This is another point to be chalked up. How is the leagae Secretary to compile his league table at ttke close of the season; and what players are qualified for the varioas gamea.-I understand, not withstanding all these imperfections the League is this year in a better financial position han it has been for many years, it is suggested at headquarters to have a sooial function at the end of J Dly, to which all officials, the exeoutiva, and winners of the oops, along with others, would be invited. At this meeting the fixtures, &c., would be arranged for the coming geatou. The suggestion is a good one, and I sincerely hope it will oome off," thereby giving all connected a chance to rab shoulders. w < Aud now for a parting line. It is closed seasou,9 thsrefore this oolumn is closed' to me. The few imperfeot notes' I hope have done injury to no one, I hope to have the confidence of the various cor- respondents and club secretaries, early next seftson. Yours till next time, SJMOXAXOB."
