THE NORTHERN UNION GAME MERTHYR OVERWHELMED AT HULL. At one time it was feared that Merthyr would not be able to raise a team to make the journey to Hull. They managed to get a team together, however, and the match took place at the Yorkshire seaport. Although Hull had their full cup team out they seldom attempted to play football on seri- ous lines against the depleted side representing the Welshmen. A twelve hours' journey did not find the latter in the best of humours, and with half-a-dozen substitutes pressed into service, the wonder was that they operated so skilfully in de- fence. It was interesting to note in their ranks Palmer- Griffiths. the trainer and sparring companion of Tom Thomas, the Welsh middle-weight champion, who figured among the forw ards, and generally gave a good account of himself. Play seldom reached serious lines on the home side, where the backs at- tempted many evolutions for the evident edification of the crowd. Devereaux was the most elusive member of the attacking party, and the Colonial helped himself to four tries during the proceedings. These were gen- erally initiated by Wallace, Hull's diminutive half- back. who fairly revelled in the happy-go-lucky methods of the winners, whose points he added to to the extent of a quartette of goals, while further tries were added by it Tuylor (2) and CottrelL Hull were without the services of Greg Ropers in the second half, this clever left-centre seriously twisting 000 of his knees in a filibustering effort to force his way through half-a-dozen .Welsh- men. Merthyr Amateur Rugby Notes. Merthyr and Glyn Neath met at Glyn Neath be- fore a good gate last Thursday. The homesters had their strongest team out. including J. C. Lloyd, tho Welsh International and Nca.th forward. Merthyr were not so fortunate, having to procure a couple of substitutes. The game from the outset was fast and even. some good passing being shown on each side in turn, the teams appearing well matched. Just before the interval, Glyn Neath scored a good try. From the restart, Merthyr at- tacked hotly, but were driven back. The home backs were handling oftener. but the Merthyr men were tackling grandly. It was truly a ding-dong battle, up and down the ground at a fine pace. Eventually Ted James bnrst away from a break up in fine style, Hunter completing the movement with a well-deserved try. The goal kick being charged down found both sides on equal terms. Play was in midfieid when time arrived, and the game ended in a, draw. The Glyn Neath forwards being able to get the ball oat oftener than the visiting pack. their backs had more chances of attack, but they were met by some fearless tackling, and fine defensive move- ments erenerally, a draw being a very fair result. The game was one of the most pleasant of the sea- son, keen and vigorous, and perfectly clean. The return match at Merthyr next month will bo looked forward to. The Merthyr men are due at Newport next Thursday, when they will want to be in their best form to win. The Uskside mid-weekers. like the Premier team, have only been beaten once this season.
THE ASSOCIATION GAME. KINGSWOOD ROVERS AT PENYDARREN PARK. MERTHYR GAIN FULL LEAGUE POINTS. fBy "Half-Back.'H The Merthyr Town Club continue their victorious career in the Western League, and on Saturday easily accounted for the Kingswood Rovers by a three goals to one win at Penydarren Park. When these clubs met in January on the Rovers' enclo- sure Merthyr won by a goal to nil, and have thus captured tho full League points from them. Out of the last five League matches played Merthyr have gained nine points out of a possible ten, and scored eight goals to two. Four of the games were played away. The weather was gloriously fine. and over 3,000 people turned up to witness the struggle. With the exception of Kelly, whose place was taken by Pemberton, Merthyr were at full strength, but many new names appeared in the list of the Rovers' eleven. When the elevens took the field bright sunshine prevailed. The visitors being- fortunate with the toss put Merthyr to face the sun. The homesters at once got into the visitors' half. and from a pretty movement bv the left wing, a corner was gained. This was well placed by Whittaker, Morris heading just over the bar. The game was fast, both ends being visited, corners falling to both Bides, but they were not productive. Exchanges ruled even for some time, when a foul occurred in the home half, from which Wallacot scored an easy goal for Kingswood. The homesters replied jvith a fine rush, Morris iust missing with a good effort. D. W. l>a- vieg twice tested Fereday, the Rovers' keeper, Fisher shortly after missing by inches with a rip- ping shot. The defence on either side was sound, Bedford doing yeoman service for the home team. Merthyr kept np the pressure, but the visitors backs, Palmer and Uart. and Padfold, at half, were irresitible;. their smart tackling and clean kicking keeping the homesters at bay. Another desperate attack on the Rovers' goal found Hart in diffi- culties, and D. W. Davies, taking advantage of his nriskick, ran the ball into the net, making the scores one all. „ A free kick for a foul against Bedford was put high over the bar, and the Merthyr lads again be- came aggressive, Churchill getting in a hard drive which produced a corner, two others following, but nothing tangible resulted from them. The no.. vers were kept busy for some time, bnt they put up I resolute defence, which the locals failed to pene- trate. and half-time came with the scores equal- one goai each. When play was resumed. Old Sol was not so con- •oicuona, the conditions being more equal. Mer- SMvr at once made headway, Whittaker getting in ;1 centre, but the fine defence of the Rovers kept heir line intact. Padfield sent his forwards on a visit to the home goal. where Lewis had to give II corner, which was cleared, and the homesters again became dangerous. Fisher passed out to Whittaker. but Padfield was in close attendance, •iru) danger was averted. The Rovers put more en- nsrv into their play, Nash making a great effort, which Bedford nullified in the nick of time. Sav- age and Morris were now seen to bettor advantage and after skilful play, the latter forced a corner off Palmer, which produced some exciting play in tho visitors' goal mouth; the ball eventually going out from another flag kick. The game was chiefly confined to the visitors' quarters corner kicks be- ing verv frequent, and from one well placed by Fisher, 'Savage put on Merthyr'^ second point. The homesters were soon round the Rovers' goal airain where D. W. Davies was fouled as he was sailing home, and from the resultant penalty kick Fisher added another goal, making Merthyr three goals to their opponents' one. Tho pace was well maintained, play being mostly in Merthyr's favour. Whittaker treated the spectators to one of his old- time shots which Fereday cleverly accounted for. Morris netted the ball, but the whistle had gone for off-side Skilful work by Savage carried play nearer to the Rovers' citadel, Morris getting in a lovely centte which Davies headed just over. The Kings. wood men made a desperate effort to reduce the lead Nash being prominent with a fine run, Bed- ford' having to concede a corner, which came to nothing A well contested game ended in a well merited win for Merthyr by three goals to one. Plenty of really good football was seen through- out the' game. which was contested in good spirit by both elevens. The chief feature was the sterling defence of both sides. This was the first appear- ance at home of Bedford and Walton, the new backs and their smart tackling and judicious kick- ing were much admired by their supporters. Sav- •'Ke and Morris, on the right wing, also made their debut at the Park. They are a clever pair. but if was not until the second half that they shone, • lien they gave a good exhibition of the game. [."wis was safe in goal, eavinu some very good -lots The halves worked well. Pemberton being the ■mt of the trio. The forwards were not allowed to frtfct liberties with1 the Rovers' defence, but D. W. DrnMes and Whittaker caused them some anxious moments The Rovers proved themselves capable players their backs and halves being very smart, Padfield deserving special mention. The wing men, Nash and Wallacot, were always dangerous, when hev found an opening, and "Spring," their centre- forward, was a hard worker, but want of combina- tion was their weakness. WESTERN~LEAGUE. MERTHYR WIN AGAIN AT ABERDARE. The match at Aberdare, on Monday, attracted a big crowd the weather being fine. Whittaker did not turn out for Merthyr, W. Davies taking his place on the left wing, otherwise both teams were at full strength. Clever oassingby the Merthyr forwards brought play perilously near the home goal Goodwin clearing at the critical moment. Merihyr continued to press W Davies petting in some clever centres, which should have been turned to good account. Tyler was kept busy. a corner accuratelv placed by W. Davies uearly proving fatal to the 'Darians. The homesters next became aggressive McAlister having a fine chance near goal but Lewis was too quick for him. and cleared when a score seemed certain. The Merthyr halves were doing some useful work. Kelly being very effective D. W. Davies got through, and easily beat Tyler, giving Morthyr the lead, which they heW to the end. The second half was more evenly contested, the Aberdare forwards doing better than in the initial half, tho football on both sides being of a high order. The homesters were striving hard to get on even terms with their opponents, and during a warm attack on the Merthyr goal T. D. Jones was fouled within the penalty area. A penalty kick was award- ed Aberdare Fairinsrdon taking tho kick, bnt Lewis cleverly saved the shot. The game became rough, r-sveral players being injured. The spectators be- came excited and rushed on the field, bat nothing serious occurred. WELSH CUP SEMI-FINAL AT MERTHYR, MILFORD AND CHESTER MAKE A POINTLESS DRAW. These teams met in the semi-final tie of the Welsh Cup at Penydarren Park, on Monday, but failed to arrive at a conclusion. Milford are the last hope of South Wales, all the other southern teams hav- ing been dismissed from the competition The counter-attraction at Aberdare, wtnre Merthyr were beine entertained in a Western League game, some- what spoiled the ate, not more than 3,000 specta- tors puttins in an appearance. Chester winning the toss, took advantage of the Sun, and soon were. busy round the Miltord goal, Winnington getting in a rattling shot, which Ju- lian just managed to divert. The Chester halves were very eflfective, keeping play well in their oppo- nents' territory, but the finishing touches of the forwards were weak, Winnington missing a.n easy chance, Julian cleared cleverly from a hunch of players. Oswald Jones got in a lightning shot, which Julian put round the post, the ensuing corner being cleared. Milford retaliated, but like their opponents, their final efforts lacked stinc, and play was consequently carried from end to end by the huge kicking githfi bfttksi Xkg featurg was the fine defence of both sides, the goalkeepers bring- 1 ing off some smart saves. Chester had most of the play during the first half. but were never really dangerous. Milford occasionally broke away, but the attempt of the forwards were very half-hearted. At half-time neither side had scored. -X* With the change of ends Milford were seen to At half-time neither side had scored. With the change of ends Milford were seen to better advantage, their backs and halves being in good trim, gave their fohvards plenty of chances, good trim, gave their fohvards plenty of chances, but their shooting was very poor. Lipsham, who was the best of the Chester forwards, got well away, but shot yards wide of the mark. The Milford goal had a narrow escape from an exciting tussle close in. the ball eventually going high over. After Milford had paid a visit to their opponents' uoal. the Chester men attacked, the downfall of the Mil- ford goal seeming imminent. Lipshom got in a pretty centre, and Julian ran out to save, but miss- ed the ball. Romford shot outside with an open goal. Milford returned to the attack, and made desperate efforts to score, but were not effective when near goal. The defence prevailed to the end, a poor ame-qnite of the cup-tie order—ending without a score.
FIRST LEAGUE TEAMS TO VISIT MERTHYR. One of the chief attractions for the Easter holi- days in the local Soccer world is the visit of the famous Notts Forest team to Penydarren Park on Easter Monday. On Tuesday Middlesbrough will pay a visit to Merthyr to fulfil the terms arrang- ed for the transfer of Sammy Wightman from Merthyr to the Northern team. Both the teams have undertaken to play their full League strength, and it will be interesting to see what difference there is between these teams of talent and our first-class home eleven. Aberdare and District Notes. rBy "Wanderer. The Aberaman Thursdays added two more Leaeue points to their credit by winning the match against Treharris, at Michael's Field. on Thursday last. In the opening stages Treharris experienced hard lines with a shot which just grazed the bar. Willie Harris then made a rush for Aberaman on the left wing, and scored. Tight piay followed, in which the visitors did the most pressing, but their weakness at centre forward deprived them of many chances. C. Silverthorn then scored after a round of pass- ing by the home forwards. After the change of ends. neither side showed such keenness, and the game deteriorated from a spectacular point of view. It should be explained that Treharris brought only nine men with them, and the substi- tutes were doing none too well. Silverthorn, there- fore, had no difficulty in scoring the third goal after steadying himself in admirable style. Indeed the homesters continued to press until the end, Jaynes having nothing to do in goal. A fourth goal was scored for Aberaman by J. Isaac. After an absence of nearly two months. the Aber- aman Windsors re-entered the field on Saturday last. The occasion was a Glamorgan League match against Llanhradach, played at Michael's Field, Aberaman. Llanbradach soon asserted themselves, and tried hard to score. From a mis-kick by Evan Jones, their inside left got through a goal after twenty minutes' play. In the second moiety the Windsors found their footing in excellent style. The large crowd gave them encouraging cheers for smart play on several occasions. McCarthy opened the scoring for them after receiving a timely pass from Alf. Clarke. With both sides equal, the struggle became very intense. From a corner kick awarded to the Windsors, one of the Llanbradach backs deliberately handled. The resultant penalty kick was taken by Alf Clarke, who scored the win- ning goal. At the Ynys Ground, Cwmhach, on Saturday af- ternoon. a match was played in the knock-out com- petition for the Aberdare cup. The contestants were the Cwmbach Thistles and Robertstown. The visi- tors won the toss, and started against the wind. Cwmbach were the first to press in close quarters, and from one of several rushes D. Davies scored. Cwmbach continued to press, and experienced hard lines in failing to score further. At the interval. Cwmbach led by one g-oal to nil. After lemons, the visitors woke up, and attempted to force matters in front of goal. A corner was conceded to them, but. the homesters just managed to clear. From a later rush. Robertstown got through a goal, which was disallowed by the referee on account of off-side play. They suffered further hard lines a little later through missing a penalty. Cwmbach then pressed until the end. and won the game by one goal to nil. The Senior team of the Cwmbach Crescents jour- neyed to Troedrhiwfuwch, to play the latter under the auspices of the Glamorgan League (Division III.). In the previous engagement Cwmhach were successful. A great struggle was witnessed between the sides, which culminated after half-an-hour's play in E. Snow scoring for Cwmbach. The home- sters tried hard to retaliate, but their efforts lacked the necessary finish. After the interval, the spec- tators were again treated to a rare tussle between the sides. Troedrhiwfuwch were brilliant, in defence, but their attacking power was weak. Cwmbach. on the other hand, were more evenly balanced in every department, and this counted for success. From a corner kick J. Matthews scored just before the close of play, and Cwmbach won by two goals to nil. By defeating Treorky by the narrow margin of two points—5 points to 3. Mountain Ash checked the former's long series of League successes, and robbed them of their ground record into the bar- gain. The "Old Firm" had only suffered one re- verse while the ex-cupholders had up to Saturday an unbeaten League record. Both sides played for all they were worth from start to finish, the game be- ing reminiscent of the great struggles between these old rivals a decade ago. Both scores wcr. put on in the initial portion of the game, and the try by Flook for Mountain Ash was the prettiest seen on the Treorky enclosure for many a month. Daly James, for the homesters, put on a goal from a place-kick. Trcorky's weakness lay in their secpnd line, for with a better understanding they should have placed a victory to their credit in the closing stages of the encounter. The forwards were all oyer the Monntain Ash front line, and got posses- sion repeatedly. Daly James was the outstanding player for the Treorkyites, his lengthy touch-finding kicks evoking repeated applause. Flooks and Love- lace, for the visitors, were the better wings, whilst Wyndham Jones, as usual, proved a capable out- side half. The leading teams in the Third Division of the Glamorgan League at present all belong to the Aberdare side. The Aberaman Wanderers, of course, head the table, while the Cwmbach Crescents make close seconds. Following the latter also are the Aberaman Windsors, who bettered their position by winning against Llanbradach last Saturday. The latter, however, have withdrawn from the Aber- dare and District League, as also have the Jubilee Rovers. It is feared that the latter team has become defunct through the want of a suitable field in which to play. On Saturday a match was played at Abernant between Ilirwain and Abernant. In the first half Connick and Cameron scored for the visitors, and Morgan and Stanley put throogh for Abernant. There was no score in the second half. The following are the results of matches played on Saturday under the auspices of the Aberdare Schoolboys' LeagueNational, four; Cwmbach Council, one: scorers for National, Thomas (3) and Price; for Cwmbach, Palmer. Cwmbach National one; Ynyslwyd, nil; J. Rees. Aman. five; Blaen- gwawr, one; scorers for Aman. Hodges (2), Wil- liams (2), and Mills: for Blaengwawr, Jones. Aber- aman, one; Capcoch, nil; A. Williams. 4!' On Tuesday afternoon, a cup match, under the knock-out competition promoted by the Aberdare, League, was played at Michael's Field. Aberaman. The contesting teams were the Aberaman Wander- ers and the Aberman C. L. Brigade. The game end- ed in a win for the Wanderers by two goals to one. On Monday afternoon the Ynys meadow, Cwmbach, was the scene of a stiff en- counter between the Cwmbach Crescents and Pentrebach. under the auspices of the Third Division of the Glamorgan League The visitors took the field against the wind, but never- theless made thejr opponents go all the way. They were unfortunate in missing from a penalty, but made amends later by opening the score with a splendid shot. L. Davies equalised shortly after- wards for Cwmbach. Before half-time Pentrebach had again forged ahead. After the change of ends no fewer than five goals were scored, four by Cwm- bach and the remaining one by the visitors. Joe Evans started the round of scoring for his side. and was followed by L. Davies. During a lull the visitors added their third goal. Pentrebach missed a second penalty kick, and this probably cost them the game, for J. Evans and Morgan Lloyd were not long in adding goals for the homesters, who won by four goals to three. Glamorganshire Association League Notes [By "the New Boy."] Despite the fact that Dame Wales suffered de- feat by a very narrow margin at Kilmarnock, and seeing that they included Evan Jones and Tagg Williams, two wdl-koown South Walians, they must be said to have done excellently against a combination which but a week earlier overcame the pick of the English League by three goals to two. In local circles nearly aU attention was centred in the visit of Treharris to Bristol, as a victory for the Rovers would strengthen immensely the chances of the City Reserves at the head of the table. As matters turned out, Treharris, who could not field their full strength, lost their nnbeaten certificate by two clear goals. As witness the intense interest at Bristol, a record crowd for a Western League encounter foregathered. Although Perry, for the homesters, scored the only goal during the first half, the All Whites allowed several promising openings to go astray. The second half saw Treharris striv- ing hard for an equaliser, but the citizens soon changed the venue, and in the closing stages, Perry ensured victory for his side by putting on an- other point. In the Second Division of the Glamorgan League several engagements which will have an important bearing upon the final placing of the clubs, were dulv fought out. Troedyrbiw visited Treliafod, the homesters fielding several players who figure regularly in the Senior Division, which brought forth a protest from the visitors. A contest cbock full of exciting incidents was witnessed. The final score, however, favoured the Rhondda Brigade by two goals to one, Troedyrhiw thus meeting with their second League reverse this season. PontloUyn with a feeling of reciprocity, visited Treharris to meet the smart Reserve combination, among whom figured several first team artistes. The early play proved very even. but gradually the visitors seemed to feel their way, and following a run up by their front rank, Jim Carey scored a magnificent goal. Naturally, this reverse to the home team enlivened play considerably, and only with difficulty did the visitors koep their citadel intact. Ding-dong play marked the opening of the second half, and later' Owen Williams, in stopping a droppilllli, brought forth upon himself the wrath of the referee. Randall Owen, the visiting goalie, saved the penalty kick splendidly and the end saw Pontlottyn victorious by the only goal scored. For Ponty, Owen. if only for stopping the penalty, must be said to have done well. Gale and Owen Williams, at back, kicked with precision throughout, white forward, every man worked well to secure victory, New Tredegar, nothing daonted by their two to one reverse at Nelson, appeared in the presence of their own supporters, Merthyr Reserves, who only fielded nine good men and true, providing the op- position. Naturally, the home team enjoyed a very easy time, and despite a continuity of off-side, as the visitors had adopted the one-lack gamo, New Tredegar led at the interval by ree clear goals. The second half again witnessed a one- sided exhibition, although the visitors played pluckily. They, however, did not prcven# the home sharp-shooters from increasing their scoft to 6even goals, and the only incident worth recording dur- ing this period was a single handed r«n by Griff Lloyd who defeating man after man, gsve Russell no chance with the final shot. For the winners. Webster, who scored on four occasions, fignred prominently, and with a, little coaching should have a brilliant future. Britbdir visited Aberdare to meet the home Re- serves. During the first half Fred Lewis and Pollett put on goals for the 'Darians, the visitors 1 responding Oil but one occasion. After the resump- tion, "Sweet 'Berdar" were again generally the < better, side) MMM- wtstbst point to Wteit sredtt,) < I11 the Third Division some surprising results 1- were witnessed. GiIfach Reserves visited Pentre- bach. one short of their full complement, but Tom Edwards, the hard working hon. secretary, gallant- ly filled the breach, and might be said to have been one of the most prominent men playing. The vis:- tors pressed early on, and Ewart Phillips scored, while later Davy, one of the homesters, turned the ball into his own net. Prior to the interval, Pen- trcbach were awarded a penalty kick, and Cross scored. In the second half the visitors again proved much the superior side. Dai Davies scoring on two occasions. For the winners. D Harris, at back, and Edwards and Browning, halves, defended va- liantly, while forward Galo, Davies, and Phillips were very conspicuous. For Pentrebach, Watts; again played usual good game. while Moore and Walters. I: -i s, and Williams and Idwell Jones, forward, were Inst in their respective positions. ■5V TT Aberfan visited Nelson with a strong team. The game throughout was very evenly contested, and Parker scored the only goal for the Reserves with a splendid shot, thus enabling them to win by a narrow margin. Merthyr Vale added another good victory to their credit by defeating Heolgerrig by four clear goals. The contest for the chief places in the Fourth Division, owing to the race between Pontlottyn Lads' Brigade and Rhymney Crescents, is fast be- coming a very keen one, and as both clubs gained substantial victories last. Saturday, much may yet happen. Pontlottyn Brigade entertained the Ath- letics from Eargoed, and the best exhibition of the season was witnessed. T. J. Smith, J. C. Davies, and Fred Thomas scored goals for the winners, while J. Jones, the home back, gave the visitors their only goal. For Ponty, Fred Thomas played well at centre half, whilst Foster and their cus- todian were most in evidence for the visitors. Troedrhiwfuwch Old Boys visited Brithdir. and returned defeated by three goals to one.—Rhymney Crescents overcame Aberbargoed at home by four goals to one. TretJefrac District Motet. f Hy "Old Judge."1 After a lon spell of wet weather, Tredegar Wfre favoured with favourable climatic conditions for their match with Penygraig on Saturday. Al- though the visitors came short of several players they were provided with capable substitutes. The game was a very good one. play being open and attractive throughout. Several exceedingly pretty. and sometimes brilliant movements, were brought off, particularly by the home backs. •X" Of Arthur opened the scoring- for Tredegar by a neat dropped goal, after the visitors had beeo press- Arthur opened the scoring- for Tredegar by a neat dropped goal, after the visitors had beeo press- ed for some time. Vigorous efforts were made to increase the lead, but the defence of Peuygraig was very sturdy and sound, and the sides crossed over with Tredegar on top by four points. In the second half Penygraig did most of the pressing, and Griffiths scored a good try as a result of some mulling by the homesters. Still they pressed, and it looked any odds on their scoring again and winning the game, but the unexpected happened. •* Onions got possession, ran and threw out lo Dan Morgan, who took the pass beautifully. He sprinted for a short distance, and then punted a few yards for W. Wiliiams lo secure possession, lie gave up to Bryn Arthur, who tried to bore his way through the opposing side, but failing to do so he put in a short punt across to the right wing. Onions raced up. fielded cleverly, and had a clear run in. It was one of the orettiest- movements seen on the ground for a long time. and fully merited the hearty applause accorded it. 7:. Tredegar forwards heeled very well. better, in fact, than the visitors, and Bevan got the ball out smartly as a rule. Jones, of the Hibernian Reserves, who deputised Burrows at outside hah", supported Bevan very well generally, but he was not quite accustomed to Bevan's tactics, and the game suffered in consequence. Still. Jones played very creditably. Lodwick, the visiting outside half, was the main support of his side, and gave an excellent individual exhibition. The home hacks were in capital form, Onions, in particular, playing an exceptionally useful and stylish game. His defence was frequently of a high standard. Bryn Arthur also maintained his reputation, both in aggressive and defensive work. D. Morgan gave a cood disnlay and McVicars cre- ated a good impression. The whole line played sound and attractive football. Both quartettes handled excellently, while their kicking was characterised by sound judgment. Baker, the home custodian, and the visiting full- back, gave creditable displays. Brynmawr were defeated in a League match on Saturday by Ahertillery. There was no mistake about the victory either, Brynmawr going under to the tune of three goals (one dropped) and a try to nil. Many chances were lost by the homesters, wild passing being the cause in most cases. The scor- ing was opened by Blakemore. who received a pass from Chick Jame.s. and galloped over the line in a good position for Cook to add the extras. Jnst after- wards Joe Richardson passed to Coates, who made a fine dash and got the ball down wide. This was followed by a score by Cook who burst. over after receiving from Chick James. Cook converted his own try. 'Tillery should have scored a few times during the second moietv. but failed to cross the line. The 'Tillery outside half Marsh, however, dropped a goal, which concluded the scoring. -7T Both full backs did finely, but Norris was the better of the two. although Parry did excellently for the visitors. Chick James was the oiitstandinsr figure in the home three-quarter line. His defence was splendid, and that James is one of the finest defensive, players in Wales to-dav is without doubt. The other 'Tillery threes did well. Jack Roberts was the best of the visiting ouarteUe. Marsh and Richardson combined well at half for 'Tillery. and were slightly superior to the visiting pair, al- though the Brynmawr inside man did finely. Jim Webb. Harry Bird. Will Lewis. and .Toe Howel's were the pick of the home pack. whilst Foley, B. Evans, and Green were the most .prominent of the Brynmawr pack. Rhymney Valley Rugby League Notes. [By "the Old Wag."] Another Cardiff fifteen, the Vest End to wit, vis- ited Rhymney last Saturday. Throughout the first. half, Rhymney were nearly always in the ascend- ant, and secured a substantial lead. The resump- tion saw the home front rankers cintralliug mat- ters both in the loose and the scrum, and a. rather uninteresting game enabled the homesters to add another victory to their credit. For Rhymney. Lewis Davies and Parry were outstanding figures among the backs, the latter notching three good tries. At half, T. S. Williams did all that was re- quired of him, while forward it would be invidious to single out any one for special mention when all did so well. Blackwood and Newbridge, who are always keen opponents, again met the former place last Sat- urday. During- the opening stages, pretty com- bination between Coleman and Birch nearly en- abled the latter to cross. The visiting front rank came away with a grand rush, and only a good save by Bingo Davies prevented a score. Nothing, how. ever, was scored up to the interval. After re- suming, the home backs got away, and a fine open- ing by Coleman went astray. The remaining play was of a very interesting character, but as no score resulted, the match ended in a pointless draw. Cwm Stars visited LLanhilleth, and enabled the home fifteen to secure a splendid victory by 14 points to 3. Talywaun accomplished a good performance in easily over-running Crumlin at home by one drop goal and three tries to niL -1:- On Monday, 'Tredegar Hibernians, who are mak- ing strenuous efforts to capture the Second Di- vision, visited Rhymney to meet the United. Even play marked the opening stages, but gradually the United commenced to assert themselves, and fol- lowing some pretty play, Owen Beddoo dropped a goal. This mfused more spirit into the visitors' play, and on several occasions they were nearly over. The second half witnessed some very exciting exchanges. Parry on one occasion crossed with what appeared to be a lovely try, but it was not al- lowed to count. The visitors fought hard to the finish, but failed to pierce the strong home de- fence, of which Parry and Owen Beddoe were very prominent. Forward, Hawkes and W. F. Morgan were best. ■3C- New Tredegar journeyed to Beaufort to play the return League fixture. The visitors were shõrt of Richards, Newman, and Davies, in the back divi- sion, and W. James, Goward, and Worthington of the forwards. The state of the ground was against football, and very little passing was seen, and what was indulged in was very faulty. The game was a kick-and-rush style, and although the visitors were weak in the front rank they made matters very warm for the homesters. D. Bowen and J. Bowen were for ever in the thick, and were well backed up by Bishop and Kift Jones. J. Bowen made some clever bnrBts for the line, but was unable to pene- trate the defence. Johnny Davis, the visiting full- back, was very often called upon to save, and each time he did so with credit. The game ended in a pointless draw, but the visitors had the best of the play. J. Bowen was undoubtedly the best forward ■ on the field, and can be classed as one of the best in the League, while Bishop, Jones, Childs and Pritchard were for ever in the thick of the fray. Behind, W. Stephens was tip-top, and John Davies was Al. The tackling of Stonelake and Tom Wil. liams was often applauded by the onlookers. Monmouthshire Association Notes. [By "the New Boy."] Several important engagements were down for decision last Saturday, and possibly the. visit of Ynysddu to Newport to meet the High Cross Stars in the Woodcock Cup semi-final was looked upon as the chief game in the district. Unfortunatelv, Ynysddn fohnd it necessary to draw largely upon their Reserve team, while High Cross fielded a representative side. The first half saw the Stars continually in the ascendant, but the defence of Pentecost worried them considerably. Eventually, after some even play, Artiss gave the Stars the lead. with a splendid shot. while later Thomas add- ed another point. The second half proved far more even. Indeed, Ynysddu experienced a series of hard lines. No further scoring, however, was re- corded. By their victory of two clear goals, the Stars qualified to meet the "Ba-Bas" in the final, and no one can say that their victory was not thor- j oughly deserved. In the Leagne four Erst division encounters were brought to a definite conclusion. Abertillery, who of late, have been carrying everything before them, visited Blama with a weak side. With the ele- ments in their favour, Blaina attacked strongly from the outset. Collier and Stone being very promin- ent. Shortly afterwards, Williams gave Blaina the lead. The next incident was an unfortunate in- jury to Belbin, but later on he returned to the 1 field to play. Near the interval, 'Tillery wete pen- alised in the sacred area, and Blunsden converted the resultant penalty. Early in the second half 'Tillery showed to better advantage, but Cornick (the home custodian) barred the way. Later, 'Til- lery was awarded a penalty, and Jeffreys scored Blaina, however, followed with two more goals through Collier. The performance was quite the best accomplishment by Blaina for many moons. Stone, Grey and Griffiths were best in defence while Collier, Belbin, and Williams shone forward. # By their four to one victory over Tredegar, Ebbw Valo have succeeded in taking tho full quota of points, both home and away. The visitors attached i first, and Lloyd nearly let the Valians down. Ebbw' 1 vale were next awarded a penalty, and WTiitcombe found the net. The visitors, however, retaliated and equalised. Knapp again soon gave the Valians I the lead. After resuming. Ebbw Vale set up a hot 1 attack, but for some time the defence prevailed < Knapp again scored with a splendid shot, while 1 near time Whitcombe initiated a grand solo run and finished up with a great goal. < t Caerleon visited Llanilleth. and on account of 1 the narrow defeat experienced by the homesters at Caerleon. much interest was taken in the meet- ing. Directly after starting Alby Thomas and 1 Whistler Jones all but scored. The visitors rallied I splendidly, and at the interval the score sheet was blank. The opening of the second half saw J 'he visitors setting up a warm attack, but the de- r fence of Trace and Woodland kept them out. Whi"- s Jones next set the home forwards going which ;l.WJ..u.it4 ia Jwua defeating Besley. The t.

THE MUSIC OF YOUR BLOOD. Have you ever heard your blood ? Have you ever put one of those large sea-shells to yonr ear and heard what children say is the sound of the sea, the music of the waves "? Well, that is really the sound of your blood- as it circulated—echoed in the empty shell. Try it at any time and you will find that your blood is always flowing. That is Nature's way of constantly carrying the nourishment from well-digested food to every part of your body. But what happens when your food is not digested ? Instead of carrying nourish- ment, your blood carried the foul products of Indigestion to every part of your system. No wonder you then have pains all over, headaches, a sense of langour, depression of spirits and a tired-out feeling. You can only be* well again when your stomach is restored to working order, enabled to digest food perfectly. Mother Seigers Syrup, the great herbal tonic, tones and strengthens the stomach, and stimulates the action of the liver and bowels. Thus, it makes food nourish you, purifies your blood and keeps you in vigorous health. Mr. Frank Rogers, of Parsonage Cottages, Catherington, near Horndean, Hants., writes :— About three years ago I found myself unable to eat without suffering terrible pain across my chest. This went on for several weeks, growing worse all the time. To avoid the pain, I ate so little that I became almost too weak to work. I suffered also from sleepless- ¡ ness, the pain at my chest troubling me by light as well as day. I made up my mind iO try Mother Seigel's Syrup. I took three )ottles and was then quite free of pain and I ible to eat without fear. From that day iO this I have been as well as a man need je." If your system is being poisoned by the foul jroducts of Indigestion, ou will have trouble, is Mr. Rogers had, 1 -,e cause is removed. vlother Seigel's Syrt promptly and surely emoves the cause and thus restores health and trength.

At a meeting of the South Wales and Monmouth- shire Football Association at Cardiff, on Satur- day evening, Mr. George Williams presiding, the Llanbradach Club were suspended sine die. This drastic step was taken because Llanbradach refused to obey the instructions of the Association to provide full details of the receipts at the cup-tie match be. tween Llanbradach and Ebbw Vale. Isaacs (Aberaman) was suspended for three weeks for misconduct. Mr. Dan Griffiths re.ported two players of the Monntain Ash Recreation Club for misconduct and refusing to leave the-field of play. The meeting appointed Mr. T. D. Johns and Air if. Gower to attend the Aberdare ajid District League to go into the matter. The Monmouthshire League reported C. Wil- liams, Blaina, for playing as a professional without registration. Williams was instructed to attend the next meeting. In regard to the fifth meeting of Merthyr and Mardy last week to decido who should enter the semi-fina!, Mardy protested against Merthyr playing Knapp, who was not eligible nnder section B, Rule 41 of the senior cup regulations. The Association found that there were no grounds for the protest inasmuch as he had been duly registered, the form "D signed by the hon. secretary of the Association de- claring Knapp a playing member of the club.
