Rhymney Valley & District Association Notes. [By "the New BoY.") Truly Troedyrhiw have accomplished a great feat in winning the Junior Cup at tho first time of ask- ing. Only last season the present team tried their luck in the Third Division, and overcame all oppo- sition in that particular competition. Promotion this season to the Second Division saw them.'still, on the upward grade and despite the more power- ful clubs against which they have had to contend, | ibe^ bitterness of defeat was linknowu to them until i their fateful meeting with Nelson on Good Friday, when they went down by 1 goal to nil. Harking hack to the cup tie, Troedyrhiw were und<>ubtedly the superior side throughout- Griff -Lloyd opened the scoring with a grand surprise shot. Cwm re- the scoring with a grand surprise shot. Cwm re- taliated, Moore and Whitcombe missing .glorious opportunities of equalising. Troedyrhiw again at- tacked, and on several occasions were nearly through. Hearsey eventually snapped up a pass, and placed them two up. For a long time after re- suming Troedyrhiw were in the ascendant, and only good defence by Greenaway and Price kept them out. The heavy going now seemed to tell on Troed- yrhiw. and had Cwm been blessed with two fairly good wingers, their chances of victory at, this per- iod would have seemed more roseate. Time time were they placed in possession, only to be robbed when on the verge of shooting. Later, Gar- ret sent across to Moore who beat Hackleton with a long shot. Inspired by this success Cwrn put forth every effort to draw level, but although they ex- perienced decidedly hard lines, no further success came their way. Troedyrhiw won, and that deserv- edly, as, for fully 30 minutes, they were the super- ior side. Hackleton in goal, played splendidly. Maggs and Joe Williams were best in defence, For- ward, Tommy Lloyd was the shining light, although his confreres were very little behind him. For the losers Price, at back, and Greenaway, at half. were truly great. Forward Moore was best. At the time of writing the Rhymney Valley First Division Championship seems as great a puzzle as ever. Probably the meeting of Ton Pentre and Alierdare this week will settle that much-debated point. In the Second Division Cwm. as a result of their victory at Dowlais, now head the table. Their meet- ing with Nelson next Monday, and the visit of Troedyrhiw to New Tredegar this week end, will probably decide the destinatoin of the Second Di- vision trophy. Should both clubs win their re- maining matches, then a deciding game between these cup finalists will be necessary. Dowlais should have visited Gilfach last Saturday, but owing to several of their players being on the injured list, they failed to make the journe. I Bodlinog entertained New Tredegar, and a really good game was witnessed. The defence, however, of both teams proved superior to the attack, the game resulting in an even draw of 1 goal each. Bargoed were at home to Aberaman. and despitc, the heavy downpour, a bright game resulted. Dur- ing the first half, Bargoed, with the slope in their favour, scored through Mason and Duggan. After resuming the visitors displayed better form, but could only succeed in piercing the home defence on but one occasion. For Bargoed Jack Davies, Flet- cher and Mason were verv prominent. .;c. Pengain Old Boys and Gilfach, finalists in the New Tredegar Easter Tournament, met at New Tre- j degar to decide the destination of the cup and medals. Gilfach proved top sawyers throughout, eventually witaiiog by 3 goals tQ aiii By their splendid victory of two clear goals over Pontlottyn Juniors, who thus lose their undefeated record, Treharris Juniors have assured themselves of the Third Division championship. Both clubs have displayed most consistent form throughout the season, Treharris only losing one match at Pontlot- tyn, and the latter club now experiencing their first defeat at, Treharris. Unfortunately, owing to the match taking place after the Junior Cup final, the ground was in a fearful condition, and good play was out of the question. The home Juniors attacked from the outset, and despite the defence of Jlawkes, Bowen and Leg;re. Tommy Williams spied an opening and placed them one up. Despite this reVirse, the visitors pluckily attacked, and on several occasions came near equalising. The sec- ond half saw Treharris again in th ascendant. Treharne early added a second point. The lat-er stages were very evenly fought out. The home- sters won by 2 clear goals. Ystrad Mynacli were due to appear at Dowlais. but. orcsumably, broke their journey at Treharris, and so failed to appear at Dowlais to the disap- pointment of a largo crowd. In the South Wales League. Mardy strengthened their position as League champions by defeating Cwmnarc at home by 4 clear goals. In the West- ern Leapuc Aberdare over-ran V/elton Rovers to the extent of 5 goals to iiil.-T,arry went under to Bristol Rovers away by 3 goals to nil.
