Aberdare and District Note*, fBy "Wanderer. There was little in the game between Alxrdarc and Welton Eovets Association teams, which was played at Aberdare, on Saturday. Both teams fielded reserves, and Aberdare, for some time, play ed with only nine men. fcrom tho outset the homesters were, however, masters of sujiation, and although thev only netted one goal in the lirst portion yet thev gave their opponents a warm time. In the second half the 'Damns did better, and before the call of time put iu an additional four goals. It was apparent from the outset that the 'I)arians were not oot to overdo matters, but evidently they were reserving themselves for the match on Monday. Forward, the most conspicuous were the two Joneses, wwfle Hawkins, on the wing, did what fell to his lot in a creditable manner, al- though this was unusually small. J he half-bacKS were good, and fed the forwards well, while in cle- fence Goodwin and Pritchaid were safe, and queutlj shielded Curtis feiisideinljl^ .UtMjjiug to J the play of the visitors the only feature was the defence and the play of Taylor in goal. The goal- getters for the 'Darians were Evan Jones (2), T. 1). Jones, Watts and Hawkins. A Western League match was played at Aber- dare, on Monday, when Bristol City lteserves were the visitors. There was a large crowd of specta- tors. The visitors were a man short throughout the game aid the 'Darians fielded practically their strongest eleven. The first half was interesting, and although Aberdare had bv far the better of the ar- gument neither side scored. Rain interfered with the play after the change of ends. but. still Aberdare were the more prominent as a team. Individual work by Downes ended in a corner being gained, by Bris- tol. and from a weil placed centreing kick Radford headed the ball beyond the reach of Carter in goal. Clever work by T. D Jones enabled (>roves to headed the ball beyond the reach of Carter in goal. Clever work by T. D Jones enabled (>roves to equalise. The homesters were in good form and on the day's play deserved to win •X■ -yr t Mountain Ash and Maestcg met< on t'lc latter s ground, and the match came to an abrupt stoppage. Coleman kicked off for the homesters, and play set- tled at halfway. III) t kick Jones the Mountain Ash forwards tackled. Bailey in possession on the home line, Kvans saving the situ- ation by finding touch Caple broke away splen- didly and passed to Bevan, who went over the line, hut was recalled for a forward pass. The home halves, after prettv inter-passing, nearly scored, Bayliss being tackled on the line. From a scrum- mage on the visitors' 25 Bailc.v beat Jones, and Ben- jamin scored in the corner lor Maesteg, Gnnn fail- ing to convert. Maestc« maintained a keen attack, Donovan bringing relief with a good kick. Picking up in the home 25 P C Bevan forced his way through a bunch of opponents and scored under the posts, Donovan's kick for goal striking the upright. A few minutes lat-er M'vndham Jones, after a clever dribble half the length'of the field, scored another try for the visitors amidst cries of "off-side" from the spectators. The referee, however, awarded the score. The- visitors restarted after the interval, Mo.esteg at once taking up the attack. The referee had oc- casion to warn one of the Mountain Ash players for too vigorous play. Maesteg were attacking on the visiting line, when the ball was kicked oyer, and Bayliss, dashing up fell on the ball and claim- ed a try. This the referee disallowed amidst loud booing by the spectators, and angry shouts of "Play the game, referee. Following a scrum, one of the Mountain Ash plavers it was said, carried the ball over his own line, but the referee granted them a minor. Angry shanw came from the spectators, the home players also protesting against the de- cision. The second half had only been in progress 15 minutes when the referee (Mr. W. Best., Penarth) stopped the game. The spectators rushec) into the field of play. and what threatened to become a serious demonstration was checked by the home players and the consta- bles on duty on the ground surrounding Mr. Best, and escorting him to the headouarters of the club. The crowd followed, and kept up a continuous hooi- ing and booing. There was, however, no attempt ing and booing. There was, however, no attempt to assault the referee •X- At Michael's Pield on Saturday afternoon, a match was played between the Jubilee Rovers and the Aberaman C. L. Brigade. The rain poured down at intervals and the field was a veritable quagmire. Jubilee pressed daring the greater part of the first half, and a goal was obtained through the instrumentality of Tom Watkins, on the left wing. The second moiety was to a great extent a, repetition of the first the Brigade getting away with a few fine bursts' but the upper-hand being held by the Rovers. There was no further scoring, and the Rovers won by a goal to nil.
