Glamoraranahire Association League 1 Notes [By "the Now Boy."] After the galaxy of talen on view during the holidays last Saturdays engagements seemed of very little moment. However, one performance stands out by itself, namely the unexpected vic- tory of Trebarris at Ton Pentre, the significance of which will be realised, when Treharris are known to be running a neck and neck race for the Wes- tern League championship with Bristol City Re- serves. Indeed, present appearances point to the visit of the City Reserves to Treharris on April 30th being the deciding factor in the tourney. Al- though handicapped by the defection of both Bar- low and Timmins Treharris did not disguise their intention of making every effort to repeat Stokes' performance at Ton. The first half was very keenly fought out, although be it said both teams played a clean game. Fyfe eventually scored one of his characteristic goals for Ton, Phillips equalising prior to the interval for the visitors. Early after resuming Wallace Jones made the issue safe for T/charris although in the closing stages the defence of Smart, Steve Jones, and Tagg Williams was brilliant. The Second Division at present provides food for thought, as the four leading clubs are striving all they know in the race for honours. New Tredegar, the present leaders, strengthened their position im- mensely by their great victory over Treliarris Re- serves at the latter place. The visitors, who were accompanied by a strong contingent, opened at a brisk pace, and Lewis, the home goalie, was soon called upon. Directly afterwards, Scott, the visi- tors winger, secured, and beating Edgar Davies cheaply, passed back to Webster, who easily found the, target. Unfortunately, Lewis, the home cus- todian, in endeavouring to prevent Webster scor- ing, accidentally sustained a fracture to his leg, and had perfor to be carried to his home. Natu- rally, this sad event damped the ardour of the home brigade, and no one was surprised when the visitors quickly added another two points. After resuming, Treharris attacked time after time, but there seemed to be no sting. On the other hand the visitors always hodod danger, and the final score read five goals to nil in their favour. How far the absence of the home custodian affected the game it would be hard to say. As matters went New Tredegar won easily, and on this season's form they are undoubtedly the best side which have ever re- presented' New* Tredegar. i I Pontlottyn dropped a very valuable point in their home encounter with Nelson, the tramo ending with honours easy. Lou Jones scored Ponty's only goal during the first half, and Lewis, Nelson's right winger, equalised. Afterwards, Pont-y could shoot everywhere except into the net, thus the ineptitude of their qumtette on this particular occasion may -J -7 the championship.

The ordinary meeting was held at the Junction Hotel, Hengoed, on Thursday, Mr. M. Morgan, Nelson, presiding. Trebaris Ueyerves appealed lor a re-play in their match with Pontlottyn, owing to tho similarity of the ronrs, and the same was sustained.
