Llanberis v. Conway. THE OUARRYMEN DROP A COUPLE OF "<- POINTS. Meeting on the Conway Morfa, these teams played the:r return League match on Saturday. A stiff wind blowing from the Anglesey direc- tion again prevailed, but there was a tolerable attendance of spectators. Conway were without their favourite back, Tom Jones, :while Tom Edwards played half. Substitutes were found for them in Matthews ary,di Ellis, both of whom gave a very creditable d splay. There were also several changes in the for- ward line. Ben Evans took his brother's place at centre, Ted going back to the sec and here he appeared more at home. J. R. Jones resumed his old position on the outside right, with Shem Jones on the inside. The visitors were a strong lot, and if we ght was the all-powerful consideration—well, Con- way would stand a poor chance of success. The teams lined out as follow:—Llanberis: Owen Owens, goal; R. Lloyd: Hughes and E. R. Owen, backs; Owen Morris, R. Roberts, and Robert Thomas, halves; W. Thomas, Willie Edwards, E. M. Roberts, and E. Lloyd Hughes, forwards. Conway: Hew. Parry, goal; Elli- and Matthews, backs; Tom Edwards1, Ted Evans, and Wilson, halves; J. R. Jones, Shem Jones, Ben Evans, E. O. Davies, and W. Stone, for- wards. Referee: Mr Robinson, Rhyl. Conway won the toss, and elected to open with the w.'n'di in their favour. Attacking at once, they gave Owens some anxiety, Hughes saving by kicking dead. A minute later Stone let go a fine shot at long range, but the leather went the wrong side of the upright. Llanberis defended strenuously during me following few minutes, but eventually Stone centred beauti- fully, and Wilson, landed the first through in unmistakable fashion. TheT,lanberis right got away, but a long kick from Ellis again changed the venue, and Conway once more attacked vigorously. Twice, however, they missed golden opportunities. Then, Shem secured, and, with capital judgment, he sent on to Ben Evans, the latter netting successfully from a good position. Two goals to the bad, Llanberis rallied courageously, and; Matthew and Ellis were calledi upon to defend their end in turn. E. Lloyd Hughes, on the visitors' left, put in a pretty run, and centred nicely, but the wind was a factor to be taken into account. Had the con- ditions been different, this effective bit of work would probably have been rewarded, but Ellis got possession instead of the attacking party, and again Conway were on the offensive. De- sultory play followed, Llanberis giving a mono- tonous display of what, in the South of England, they call "Chatham tactics." Three corners were then forced by Conway in quick succession, but on neither occasion could they get through. Tom Edwards tried pot-luck at long distance, but Owens handled cleverly, and kicked dead. The Llanberis right wing was then put in motion by Bob Thomas, and between them and the centre they beat Ellis, who was forced to concede a corner. The flag-kick proved abortive, Shem clearing well out of harm's way. Conway were having by far the best of the argument, and the ensuing attack foundi the visitors' again the de- fending party. Just on the call of time Llan- beris were penalised for handling within the pro- hibited area, and Ellis beat Owens neatly with the penalty shot. At half-time Conway led three goals to nil. On resuming operations Llanberis, with the wind, in their favour, played' with considerable dash, though in their efforts'to do much they did little. Repeatedly they lost splendid chances with rash shooting. Conway defended well. Ten minutes after the re-start saw J. R. Jones get away on the, right, closely attended by Wilson and Ben Evans. Owen a'nd Bob Thomas were defeated by the winger, and trans- ferring in the n'ck of time to Wilson, he gave the latter an opportunity, which was used to ad- vantage, Wilson banging in the fourth point past Owens at a'terrific pace. The spectators cheered the incident to the echo. Llanberis then as- sumed the aggressive, and Llew. cleared a fine effort from Willie Edwardsl at the cost of a corner. The flag-kick went behind. Shortly afterwards Conway were penalised for "hands" within the 18 yards limit, and E. R. Owen, who took the kick, scored easily. Seven minutes later R. D. Evans gave Llew. another warm handful, the little man fisting out very effective- ly. Just as the visitors emulated Chatham's dodg-e in the first half, the homesters now re- sorted to the same unsportsmanlike trick. Time after time they kicked out, and, effective though it might appear to be from the home side's point of view, it was not football. Just before full-time sounded R. D. Evans shot the second- point for the visitors. The result was thus in favour of Conway by 4 to 2. -0--
Portmadoc v. Portdinorwic. ("D.T.H.") At Portmadoc on Saturday, before a very good gate. A slight hreeze was blowing from the sea, and although the home skipper won the toss, he decided to play against the wind. Mr Huighes, the "Home Secretary," was referee, and performed, his duties to the entire satisfaction of all concerned. The homesters are naturally proud of their position as leaders of the North Wales League, and looked upon the Dinorwic men as easy victims. But they received tan eye-opener when the v'sitors dashed off from the kick-off alt a rare pace, and forced a corner, which, however, proved fruitless, the home centre-half boldly breasting1 the leather out of harm's way. The homesters woke up, the left wing, Jones and Dick Hughes, putting in some nice work. Hughes shot, but it went wide. The home skipper played; centre-for- ward instead of full-back, and fed his wings time after time most unselfishly and with rare 'judgment. The Dinorwic rght wing was very troublesome, but Arthur Hughes was in tip-top form, and 'there w-as, no passing him, his tack- ling being fearless and his kicking safe as a rock. Roberts, the home outside right, had many golden opportunities of scoring, .but he e'ther shot wide or dallied1 with the ball until he lost it. He was net in form at all, although he improved vastly in the second half, and sen't in some half-a-dozen rasping shots, which the visitinigi custodian cleared with much cleverness. The chief features of the play at this stage were the sterling play of Jones and Roberts, the home halves, and Hughes, back. The home skipper was here, there, and everywhere, and, showed rare form. The left wing were more aggress've than the right, because they got the ball oftener. Gradually the, right wing asserted iitself, and although "Moss" and Roberts were closely watched, the former would wriggle his way like an eel through four or five opponents, and all but score. The visitors were, playing a really hard game, giving the homesters no peace. The right w,,n,i was the more dangerous, although the inside left grazed. the pos't upright once Wlül a. beauti- ful shot. Portmadoc experienced hardl lines in not scor- ing at this stage, "Moseley Jones-or, as he is called, "Moss"—nearly doing the trick twice. The forwards sadly lacked sting and: Igo in front of goal, chance after chance going abeg- iging, some of 'the work done being very loose and ricketty. The first goal was from a pen- alty, caused by the visiting right back fouling the home skipper. Arthur Hughes took the kick, and sent in a low grounder, which whizzed into the net like greased lightning. Moseley Jones tscored the second, a beautifully-judged high shot. The wing men helped materially to bring the opening chance about. Jones and Hughes had pops at ,goal, and so did the skip- per and the right wingers, but the visiting cus- todian was in rare trim, punching out shot after shot in masterly style. Portmadoc were actu- ally peppering the Dinorwic goal during th second half, but score they could not. Another penalty was put through by Hughes with light- ning rapidity. Portmadoc won a hard, but a very ragged and unscientific game, by four goals to nil. Had they done justice to themselves, the score should have been double figures, and if Port- madoc hope to pull off that stiff affair next Sat- urday (to-day) agains't Bangor, they must shape very differently to what they did against Port- dinorwic. This match on the 21st at Portmadoc will be one of the stiffen tussles of the season, and well worth going miles to see. But the homesters will have to trot it pretty smartly all the way, or else Bangor will wipe the grass with them. With the speedy forwards in "shooting trim," the halves and backs in "sullen stubbornness," and Evan Davies in goal,' cool as ice and wily as a panther, I have every confidence that Port- madoc will win, thus making the championship doubly sure. I hope the referee will be firm, and that foul play and "hard knocks" will be consp:cuous by their absence. Play up, ye men of Madoc! -0-
Rydal Mount (Colwyn Bay) v. Dinglewood (Colwyn Bay). Played at Rydal Mount on Thursday last. The. home skipper won the spin of the coin, and the visitors started against a slight breeze, which was blowing from goal to goal. After the open- ing exchanges, Rydal advanced on the right, but Holroyd cleared with a fine kick. Clayton and Jones tried to get going on the visitors' left, but were checked by Horton when nearing the Rydal citadel. Following a brief spell of midfield play, Gibbs got possession, and, passing to his part- ner, the "winger" centred in fine style, but Ferrar cleared with an equally fine "punt." A brief excursion -in the Dingle vood territory was followed by further aggressive tact;cs on the part of the visitors, who advanced on the left, and Clayton finished up with a cross shot, which Underwood cleared. The homesters, led on by Firth, swarmed round the Dinglewood goal, but the visitors' defence was equal to the occasion, and Ferrar brought off a fine save. The homesters were still attacking when the whistle sounded for half-time, the score being: Rydal, nil; Dinglewood, nil. Rydal opened the second half in promising Z, style, only to be pulled up by Tonkin, who was playing a fine game at right half for the visitors. Rydal gained a free klick, given against Jones for handling,, and attacked, Giibbs shooting ridicu- lously wide of the mark when a goal seemed certain. The homesters kept up the attack, and after Firth had hit the bar, the ball was rushed through the Dinglewood goal by the Rydal for- wards "en bloc." From the kick-off Dingle- wood attacked, and Morgan shot behind when a goal seemed imminent., Jones, receiving, the ball from Morgan, ran through, an'd equalised one minute from "time." Straight from the kick- off, Clayton made off on the left, and put in a magnificent centre, which Underwood cleared at the expense of a corner, which happened just as the whistle sounded. Final scores Rydal Mount, 1 goal; Dinglewood, 1 goal. (o)
FOOTBALL NOTES. [By "VIGILANT.") Whilst Bangor, in a Combination fixture, were defeating Chirk on their own enclosure by one goal to nil, the other coast club, Rhyl, was being severely drubbed at Burslem. I am sure the canddd opinion of all coasters, and especially the majority of Rhylites, when I say I hope it will be Rhyl's last season in the Com- bination. I admire the aspirations of Rhyl foot- ballers in going, in for higher class football than there is to be found on the coast; though, at, the same time, from a financial point of view, I think the game is not a paying one. Rhyl are, peculiarly situated in this respect. If they were members of the First League Divis- ion, very few more sixpences would be taken, because what football enthusiasts, there are in. the seaside town,, are always out viewing a match. I am sure I shall not be in error when I prophesy that the Rhyl gates do not warrant the heavy expenditure, inseparable from incor- poration in the Combination. Lon.g distances to travel, time lost by players, etc., has the dis- agreeable effect of expenditure exceeding the in- come, and, as I have before stated in these columns, it would be far better if Rhyl got up a good team for league purposes in their own locality. It would oerta nly 'be, a grand fillip to football generally on the coast. The case of Ban.gor is on another footing alto- gether to that of Rhyl, because the Cathedral City can always command a good gate, and their supporters are more solid in the constant en- couragement of their pets. At the same time, Bangor has to pay very heavily for its member- ship of the Combination, by having to pay each visit:ng team for all the distance travelled over beyond a certain radius. Notwithstanding all the so-called glory of being in the combination, I would be glad to see both Rhyl and Bangor withdraw from it, and become members of a good and sound North Wales Coast League, where now and again we should see some good local fights, and the levelling up of coast foot- ball generally. It was the late lamented Llandudno Swifts that were first imbued with the idea of being members of the Combination, and their laudable desires cost them their actual existence. It will hardly be believed that when belonging to the Com- o bination the: (gates of Llandudno did not really increase to an extent worth speaking of, that is, compared with the time they were members of the North Wales Coast League, so I hope, for the sake of the coast generally, that both teams will secede from the Combination next season, and throw their weight and talent into the scales of coast football only. I am, very pleased to think that the North Wales Coast Football Association is on a better business this season than has been the case for some years. The methods adopted are very praiseworthy, and we are to have a proper amendment of the semi-obsolete rules, county caps, etc. and, also, we are to have an East v. West match. Further developments in due time will ensure confidence that was to a great sense lost during the past three years. »
Football Chips. What People Say. That the manner in which Rhyl Athletic beat the "Roosters" on Saturday in the N.W.C. League match was a surprise to those present. That the "Roosters" were 3-1 at half-time, and were regarded, even by Rhylites, as potential winners. That- the all-round display of the domestic birds was miserable in the extreme. That, of course, the queer ground had some. thing to do with it. That on Saturday Ben Hayes was not up to concert pitch. That it was not his "day out." That perhaps he is reserving his marvellous powers for the defence of the East team on the 2nd of March at Llandudno. That Rhyl's victory on Saturday alters Llan- rwsit's prospects in the run for the League cham- pionship. That they deserved to lose, if only for the weak back play and their want of resource. That it is time the "Roosters" learnt a little strategy. That the Rhyl Athletic can do well with the two points gained. That the team is, well managedi. That it is 'a pity that some of their players flit to other clubs just when they are worth any- thing to. their own team. That Tom McCann's inclusion in the ranks of the "Roosters" is a good move. That his goal on Saturday was one of his "patents." That Rhyl Combination will jiow think their Reserves good enough for Llanrwst in the Coast Senior Cup Tie. 0 That perhaps that will be a miscalculation. That the "Roosters" will be on a better ground than that at Rhyl. That the contest will be a good one. That much interest is being manifested along the coast in the East v. West matcH, to take place at Llandudno on Monday, March 2nd. That the N.W.C. Football Association have selected representative elevens and reserves. That one veteran member lost his man, like- wise his temper, at the meeting. That his sage advice, however, should have been respected. That certain amateurs, fortified, as they think, with their knowledge of football, put forward their ideas with little regard to efficiency. That everyone who loves the' game purely played will rejoice to think Referee Richard Hersee will command the East v. West match. That representatives- from Portdinorwic and Llanfai,r will be on view. That Sammy Brookes, the Welsh Interna- tional half-back, is by some means overlooked. That this seems to be a huge mistake. That Conway won another League match on Saturday. That Llanberis were the victims. That Penmaenmawr were down on their luck again on Saturday at Carnarvon. That Carnarvon visit the Amateurs of Llan- dudno on Saturday. That the 'game is bound to be a tough one. That the rumour that Herby Hotchkiss has signed a professional form for Bangor is untrue. That it would be a blow to Llandudno if he had. That Willie Allman has again taken up the game for Llandudno. That he was once a famous Swift player. That the power of selecting referees for the North Wales Coast League is now vesteS in the 0 league secretary, Mr Harry Jones, of Llanrwst. That he displays good sense in his selection. That Messrs Richard Hersee and John Roberts, of Llandudno, have Combination matches to engage in. That it is, an honour to the coast. That the decision to play the International match at Cardiff is a queer one. That North Wales has been quite ignored by the Association. That the wishes of 25 clubs have been thrust aside. That we ought to have a Ruigbyinternational in North Wales if the soccer code is to be taken South. That the Welsh team to do duty against England is the best selected for years. 4
International Matches. The jfollowing dates and places have been fixed upon for international Association football matches in which Wales takes part: —Wales v. England at Portsmouth on Monday, March 2; Wales v. Scotland at Cardiff on Monday, March 9- Welsh Trial Match. WHITE v. STRIPES. The annual trial match arranged by the Welsh 'Football Association was played on Monday on Wrexham Racecourse. The teamsi were strong ones, the players hailln.g from such powerful clubs as Liverpool, Stoke, Leicester Fosse, Bury, Oxford University, Derby County, and Notts Forest. 1k R. T. Gough, of Oswestry, acted as referee, and when the players lined up there was a good attendance, although the weather was damp and cold. The ball was set in motion by Jones (of the Dru.ds), the Stripe's centre. The forwards of the Whites, however, were the first to get going, 0 0 and they ought to have scored straight away. The ball came out, and Jones (of Aberaman), the White centre-half, sent a low, swift shot into goal, and it beat Evans, the ball just going in- side the upright. The Whites were a rather more well-balanced team than their opponents, and they were constantly troubling the defence of the Stripes. Morris, of Liverpool, had E» one to beat but the goalkeeper, but Evans saved well. On the second attempt, from a cross by Meredith, the ball passed, behind' the Whites' goal line. C. Morris, Derby County, was show- ing grand defensive work. The Stripes improved and the game became interesting. After Blew had brought off a good clearance, Ll. Griffiths let fiyat twenty yards range, and, equalised, the score. Straight from the kick off the Whites dashed down, and! Morgan Owen, after a neat piece of work, placed his side ahead once more.. Both teams tried hard to augment their respective scores, but failed. Half-time Whites 2, Stripes 1. On resuming, Owen (Wrexham) equalised, bi-t then Morgan C, Owen (Oxford University), and Morris (Liverpool), replied with goals for the Whites. Roberts (Notts Forest), next got one for the Stripes, and Morris' (Derby), equalised. Final: -Whites 4, Stripes 4. England v. Wales. WELSH TEAM. At a meeting of the Welsh Selection Com- mittee on Monday night the following team was selected to play for Wales against England:- Roose (Stoke), goal; Blew (Wrexham), and Morris (Derby County), backs; Parry, (Liver- pool), Morris (Shrewsbury), and Hughes (Tot- tenham. Hotspur), half-backs; Meredith (Man- chester City), Watkins (Stoke), Green (-Not- County), Atherton (Edinburgh Hibernians), and Morris (Notts Forest), forwards. Wales v. Scotland. A special general meeting of the Welsh Foot- ball Association was held at Wrexham on Mon- day to consider the requisition signed by 25 clubs appealing to the Council to reconsider their decision to play the international match, Wales v. Scotland, at Cardiff. The petitioners expressed great surprise at the action of the Council, and asked for the match to be played in North Wales. A Council meeting followed, and it was decided by a majority of nine votes to five to play the match at Cardiff, as arranged.
The North Wales Coast Football Association. East v.

Fashionable Wedding at Conway. Hargreaves- Naylor. A FASHIONABLE, withal quiet, wedding took place at the old Parish Church, Conway, on Saturday morning. The contracting parties were Mr Ernest James Rundle Hargreaves, second, son of the late Rev j. Henry Hargreaves, I of Glasgow, and Mrs Naylor, second daughter of the late Mr John Lees, J.P., and Mrs Lees, of Cartref Mel us, Conway. The floral decorations in the church were neat and chaste, the (flowers chiefly used being' splen- did specimens of arum lilies. Over the en- trance to the chancel through the magnificent old screen, a beautiful floral horse shoe, com- posed of lilies of the valley, violets, and narcissi, was, suspended. On the entratjoe of the bride, the organist, Mr B. J. Potter, F.R.C.O., performed Gounod's stirring "•March Militaire," the congregation standing meanwhile. The officiating, clergy were the Rev J. P. Lewis (vicar) and the, Rector of Gyffin (Rev David Jones). The bride was given away by her mother, while, the duties of best man were performed by Mr Arnold' Hargreaves, brother of the bride- groom. The party also included Mr and Mrs C. M. Lees, Mr and Mrs Arthur H. Crump, Miss Har- greaves (sister of the bridegroom), Mr and Mrs Henry Keeling, Miss Alklridge, Mr Owen Row- land, J.P., and Mr and Mrs J. Pollitt. The happy couple left the church to the strains of Mendelssohn's "Wedding March." Mr Potter also performed a selection from "William Tell" and Wolstenholme's "Die Ant- wort." A reception was subsequently held at Cartref Melus, and Mr and Mrs Hargreaves afterwards left for London and Paris for their honeymoon.
—— Mrs Rebecca Latimer, of Fivemiiletown, co. Tyrone, has died at the age of 103.
