'Abergavenny made their first visit to Ebbw Vale on Saturday, when glorious weather prevailed for tlw match. The asylum town team invariably play their games at home, so that it is looked upon as m honour when they play on a strange ground. Mr. Irish, the Vaiian secretary, however, would not be lienied, and after prolonged negotiations, was suc- tessful in getting this crack team to make the jour- fcey. There was a splendid attendance in the held, but there was the usual bunch of "mean sportsmen, who prefer viewing the game from the eminence close to the ground, where their pockets are not afl'tcLed. S. H. Irish and H. J. Wright opened the batting for Ebbw Vale to the bowling of Childs and lames. The scoring was slow, both batsmen playing im the defensive, and helping themselves to a few tuns off stray balis. When he had scored 6 Irish was Lowled by a splendid delivery of Childs. Ca. vana^h joined Wright, and the spectators were treat- ed to good cricket. Wright, after putting together i weii-carned 15, got in front of his wicket in at- tempting to play Wildblood to leg. The decision, nevertheless, was a doubtful one. It. Graham joined Li.vanagh. and soon played himself in. He kept The ball low, and would not be tempted to hit out. Lavanagh, in the meantime, practically monopolised P; scoring. At length he was clean bowled by w'th his share of the score at 20. The score at 55 for three wickets, a fairly good start, tnen L>. j.

Price followed, and staved e 'a, i few overs, before he was bowled by James. Dai Davies shared the same fate with the same bowler. tVilliiimson followed, and opened with a couple of rood hits. Robins-co ntinued to play brilliant cricket, mt was unfortunate in receiving a nasty injury. A »st ball rose from the pitch, and struck him on ihe head. He, fell slightly dazed, but soon re- turned. It was evident, however, that he had had mough. He spooned a ball, which was taken by Lewis. His brilliant innings of 50 included 2 Bxes, 6 fours, 2 threes, 1 two, and o singles. He ras heartily applauded upon his return to the pa- vilion. Churchill did not stay long, the whole side >eing out for the respectable total of 170. It was telt that this useful lead would save Ebbw Vale jrom defeat, and with anything like good luck there ra-s a possibility of winning. Lewis and Webb parted for Abergavenny, the bowlers being Maxted tii<i Churchill. It soon became clear that the bowf- ang was at its best. Runs came very slowly. Lewis wali finely caught by Graham without scoring, and R. Jacobs, one of the visitors' best men. followed,
