rOOTBALt. t With the idea. of strengthening the front line of the local eleven for to-morrow in the match at Penydarren Park against Crewe Works, Pemberton and W. Davies will play on the left wing in place of Fisher and Whittaker. The form shown by the left wingers in recent matches has left much to be desired; the dash so necessary for success, especially in cup- ties, has been sadly lacking. The team will turn out as follows: Lewis; Bedford and Wal- ton; Kelly, Llewellyn and Churchill; Savage, Morris, D W. Davies, Pemberton, and W. Da- vies. The kick-off is fixed for 4.30. The Merthyr Northern Union team are due at Runcorn to-morrow, and the team will be selected from the following:—Back, Read; three-quarters, Ponty Thomas, T. Thomas, Syd James, W. Davies, and Swathridge; half- backs, Harris and Rhys Rees; forwards, D. B. Davies, Dan Lewis, Bevan Hughes, Norris, Palmer, Griffiths. The team will leave Merthyr on Saturday morning at 8.15. The draw for the first round of the Work- shop Competition will be made at the, bridge Artns" 6ri GffilM5 vn re- quested to send in their entries at once. Amongst the teams entered are the following: Cyfarthfa Juniors, Abercanaid, Dowlais Works, Castle Pit Rovers, Merthyr Juniors, Hill's Plymouth, St. IUtvd's (Dowlais) i SOUTH WALES SENIOR CUP SEMI-FINAL > ABERDARE'S GOOD-BYE. Treharm and Aberdare met last Thursday ■ at Mountain Ash in the semi-final for the South I Wales Senior Cup, but as tho ground was unfit for playing a cup-tie it was declared off, a | friendly being- played instead. Tho game was ordered to be played at Penydarren Park yes- terday, and attracted a large number of specta- tors, fully 5,000 being present. The weather was ideal, and the ground being in perfect con- dition a last game was witnessed. The teams lined up as follows: Treharris: Goal, Bailiff; backs, Smart and Griffiths; half-backs, Martin, "Tagg" Williams, and Owen; forwards, Bar- low, Abley, Phillips, W. Jones, and Hawkins. Aberdare: GoaJ, Roderick; backs, Lewis and ■ Goodwin; half-backs, Parker, Farringdon and Cox; forwards, Tippett, Bradbury, Tosswill, Hoskins, and T. D. James. < Aberdare won the toss, but Treharris were the first to be aggressive, the ball going out in a promising attack. Play was quickly trans- ferrod to the opposite end, Griffiths stopping a dangerous rush. The Aberdare forwards com- j bined well, and kept play in the Treharris half, j but their efforts near goal were weak. Play was fast, each eni being visited in quick time, but the defence prevailed. Trebarris were hav- ing rather more of the play, "Tagg" Williams doing yeoman service for his side. By pretty combination the 'Darians worked their way into the Treharris half, but their efforts in front of goal lacked sting. Tippett was given a good chance, but after a neat run, shot wildly over the bar. Treharris showed up better. "Tagg" Williams giving Phillips a nice pass in mid-field, from which he broke through the Aberdare de- fence, and put up the first point for Treharris. From the centre kick the Treharris men made straight for goal, where Barlow got in a shot that beat Roderick, making them two up, the second goal being scored within a minute of the first. Treharris kept up the pressure for some time, the Aberdare goal having a near shave. The 'Darians were somewhat disorganised, and but for the grand defence of Goodwin and Lewis further disaster would have overtaken them. Tippett showed good form, and had he been better supported, the eooro would pro- bably have been different. Treharris were the smarter team in the opening half, but failed to add to their score, and at half-time they led by two goals to nil. Owing to Barlow having his shoulder dislo- cated, Treharris had to resume with only ten men, but they put up a, good fight, their de- fence being very sound. Aberdare were play- ing a better game, but shot badly when near goad. The pace was well maintained, and from a dangerous raid on the Treharris goal, Brad- bury put on a goal for Aberdare. The half- back play on both sides was the chief feature of the game, the forwards appearing to be unde- cided at the critical moment. Aberdare had A full share of the game, interesting play taking place in the Treharris half, Bailiff saving luckily a hard shot at the expense of a corner. Towards the end the paoe slackened, but neither side oould add to their score, Treharris running out winners by two goals to one after a well-con- tested game. The defence Qf poth sides was good, both sots of forwards being in good trim, and put in effective work. The forwards never got into their-*propor stride, Tippett and Bradbury, for Aberdare, and Hawkins and Phillips, for Tre- barris, being the pick. MERTHYR V. TON PENTRE. THE PROTEST NOT SUSTAINED. Ton Pentre laid a protest against Morris, of Merthyr Town, as not being eligible to play in the South Wales Senior Cup matter came before the Association on Thurs- day night, but the protest was not sustained, and the tie will be replayed at Mid-Rhondda groand on Monday next.
