LLANRWST. VARIOUS. We are pleased to understand that Mr. J. L. T. Parry, son of Mr. Parry, Midlothian Mount, has been articled to Messrs D. Jones and Roberts. We wish him every success.—Out of several candidates for the vacancy at the Alms Houses, our old townsman Ishmael Williams, of Tan-y-Graig, has been successful. FOOTBALL. LLANRWST V. LLANDUDNO SWIFT RESERVES. This match was played at Llanrwst last Saturday, before a good number of spectators. Llandudno won the toss, and Williams kicked oif against the wind. The visitors got posses- sion and raced down towards the home gaol, finishing with a capital shot, which just grazed the bar. Never daunted, they came again, but Trevor proved too much for them, and cleared finely. The home left, by a, nice bit of play, came near scoring. Tommy Griffiths heading over the bar, from the gaol kick, the Swifts centre half gave to his right outside who shot behind. The game now became fast and excit- ing. The home forwards raced away beauti- fully, their passing at this time was brilliant, but when the gaol seemed at their mercy, the whistle sounded, and the referee gave hands against the Swifts. The free kick was nicely placed by Trevor from which Tommy Griffiths scored. From the re-start, the Swifts played more determined but the home defence was impre- gnable. From a beautiful centre by 'Paddy,' Sammy Parry registered the second gaol for Llanrwst. Ssmc midfield play followed. Llan- dudno then took up the pressing and 'Zulu' was given some stiginf shots to negotiate, but he cleared finely each time. Half time Llan- rwst, 3 goals. Swifts, 2 goals, Final Result:— Llanrwst, 6 goals, Swifts, 2 goals. OBSERVATIONS. Mr. E. Jones, (Zulu) in gaol was at his best and played an excellent game. He has certainly the making of a Goalkeeper but I would advice him not to keep the ball too long when he handles it. The backs played well. The pick of the two was Trevor Jones, who was by far the best back on the field. Bob Lloyd, his partner, requires more practice, and would play much better if he paid more attention to the ball and less to the man. Little Jack King was the pick of the halves and his exhibition on Saturday was simply a treat. Sammy Parry at centre, proved a great suc- cess. He certainly:is tricky, but at times he kept the ball too long and so lost it. Williams played well but I have seen him play much better. Roberts did good service. The home left was the most conspicuous and Paddy' played remarkably well, and I think lie has a very promising future. Llanrwst football supporters will be sorry to hear that the club have lost the services of a most prominent and plucky player, namely Arthur Jones (right full back). I understand that he has signed for a Chester Club and that he plays extremely well. I wish him every success.
