.-OSll FOOTBALL. Two important League matches are down for decision to-morrow (SoU'.rday) and Monday next, which will have coasitlerable bearing on the reuslt of the Western League table for this season. To-morrow Bath City will meet the Town Club at Penydarven Park, and on Monday the redoubtable Ton Pentre eleven, who won the South Wales cup last Monday, are due at Merthyr. If the Merthyr team win the remain- ing three matches in this competition they should finish in the first three, and they are sure to be trvers. The team selected to do duty on both days is a follows :—Goal, Lewis; backs, Walton and Bedford; half-backs, Kelly, Llew- ellyn and Churchill; forwards, Savage, Capel, D. W. Davies, Fisher and Taylor. V The Merthyr Northern Union Team will, to-morrow, entertain Roclidale Hornets, and the following team has been selected :—Ponty Thomas, back: Reed, Tom Thomas, James and Watkins, three-quarter backs Rees and Harris, half-backs; G. Tayolr, W. Taylor, D. B. Davies, D. Lewis, Bevan and Jenkins, forwards. Kick- off at 4.15. When the teams met in Lancashire the Hornets won by six points to nil. A victory tor the Merthyr men to-morrow is therefore anticipated. The Merthyr players who took part in the ntemational match at Ebbw Vale last Saturday acquitted themeslves creditably. So well did Rees play that after the matcii the Wigan officials who were present offered a very sub- stantial sum for his transfer--£200 has been freely mentioned—and the .Merthyr officials have decided to accept the offer. The draw for the semi-final in the medal IOmpetition is as follows:—Merthyr Juniors v. C^farthfa Juniors, on Wednesday next, kick- off at 6 o'clock and Graig Pit, Plymouth, v. Cyfarthfa Boys, next Saturday, kick-off at 6 o'clock. GLAMORGAN ASSOCIATION LEAGUE.
