the most rabid opponent cannot but admit that the .Soccer game has jumped into popularity by leaps and hounds. Financially the South Walcs and Mon- mouthshire Association has experienced a record season. Indeed, the Senior Cup gate of £173 1)(;- t'.veen Merthyr Town and Ton Pentro. at Tonypandy, wili require a lot of beating, although the high water-mark in that direction will not be obtained for many seasons yet. Undoubtedly tho clean and scientific methods, together with the good manage- ment of the game, appeals to every supporter of honest sport. In the Rhondda Valley, thanks to the enterprise of Ton Pentro and others, the game now holdn sway, and next season will witness the organisation of one, if not two, new professional clubs, while junior dubs have sprung up in every dirccti<>n. in the Merthyr Valley (he new Merthyr club slands pre-eminent, and the promoters are to be highly com- | plimented in having steered the club through a "hoal of difficulties to such a high pinnacle in South Wales Soccer. Probably, next season will witness oilil greater developments at Merthyr. Trocdyrhiw, lower down the Valley, have accom- plished wonders, as with practically the same team that won the Rhymnev Valley League, Third Di- vision, they have won the Junior Cup at the first time of asking, together with making a great fight for tlw League. Treharris unfortunately has experienced a very lean season. The chief reason for this is the in- ability of their new players to blend together, while some ot the old hands, who have rendered yeoman service in rhe past must be considered a spent force. Next season the committee anticipate, with the aid of several new players, regaining their old position among the chief exponents in the Principality. son, although they started late, have done exceed- ingly well, and as next season all of their old play- ers will be eligible for the Junior Cup. much is an ticipated of them, both in the League and other I competitIOns. In the Rhymney Valley, despite the falling away of Llanbradach through the unfortunate strike, iieveral new clubs have sprung into existence, wliil: the older organisations have all maintained their fonnei prestige, and the future appears still more hopeful. From a League standpoint everything worked splendidly up to April, Vhen a congestion of fixtures, together with the abnormal weather, uL. terly spoiled a splendid finish in both tho First and Second Divisions. Aberdare and Ton Pentre were due to meet to settle the destination of the First Di- vision trophy, on April 22nd. the only re- quiring a single point to establish their lead. but unfortunately Jupiter Pluvius upset these arrange- ments. uhat the League committee will decide re- mains to be seen. "TV In the Second Division Cwm and Troedyrhiw, after a neck and neck race, tied for points, and as their goal average was precisely similar a deciding game was considered necessary. Unfortunately, owing to a misunderstanding and the shortness of time to make the necessary arrangements, such meeting could not be arranged. Probably both clubs will meet early next season to decide the championship. In the Third Division, which has worked splen- didly this ason, Treharris Juniors and Pontlottyn Juniors easily outdistanced all others in the race for honours. Brithdir Abertysswg, and Troedrhiw- fuwch seemed likely at one period to give the leaders some trouble, but eventually Treharris Juniors set the seal on a great season's performance by over- coming Pontlottyn at home, which gave them the lead on their close rivals by a very narrow mar- gin. In all probability both clubs will figure in the Second Division next season, as tjhe Soccer cede is again rapidly coming to the front at Tontlottyn. Second Division next season, as tjhe Soccer cede is again rapidly coming to the front at Tontlottyn.
