Rhyl v. Chirk. English Cup.—Third Round. When Rhyl were at Chirk a fortnight ago in a Combination fixture they were defeated by the Colliers to the extent of five goals to two, with the result that the visit of Chirk to Rhyl, on Saturday, in the 3rd Round of tue English Cup, was eagerly lctoked forward to, and hopes ran high that the Seasiders would be able to wipe out their previous defeat, for, whatever may be lacking on their part in Com- bination matches, they have hitherto put forth strenuous efforts in all cup competitions, and last season they climbed up into the semi-final of the Welsh Senior .Cup. On Saturday, how- ever, the hopes entertained by their support- ers were squashed, for they appeared to be able to do everything but score, the Chirk lot proving equal to all the tests they were sub- jected to. But, at the same time, it must be admitted that Rhyl were superior in com- bination, while on the part of the visitors, they exhibited more vigour than skill. The weather was beautifully fine, but owing to the hard frost of the previous night and the sub- sequent thaw the ground was in a very slip- pery condition, with the result that accurate shooting was out of the question. Punctual to time the teams were lined up as follows:- Rhyl: Goal, R. J. Jones; backs, Ogilvie and Jack Jones; halves, Whitlock, W. Roberts, and Vernon Jones; forwards, Dick Owen, Tellis Hughes, Bob Edwards, Tom Williams, and Tom Roberts. Chirk: Goal, D. Jones; backs, T. Povey and H, Jones; halves, W. Negus, S. Roberts, and E. Williams; forwards. H. Smith, W. Wynne, Seth Williams, E. Jam'es, and T. Harris. The Game. The Chirk skipper having won the spin of the coin elected to defend the top goal and kick down the *!slope. Rliyl started, and Wynne transferred to Smith, who raced down the field, but was easily dispossessed by Jack Jones, the ball being returned to midfield, where Vernon Jones fell on the ball and neat- ly passed to T. Roberts, and he in turn trans-, ferred to Tom Williams, who centred beauti- fully, Povey going to the rescue in the nick of time to intercept a shot by Edwards, a~d after a scrimmage the ball travelled over the line. The game continued all in favour of the home lot, but at length James broke away and tried a shot, which went wide. From the goal kick Vernon Jones and Roberts, by some tricky plav, bewildered Negus and Roberts, and placed their forwards in possession, T. Wil- liams centreing with a "header to Edwards, who grazed the upright with a grand shot. A moment later an exciting run was witnessed along the right wing between Dick Owen and Hughes, the former eventually placing be- hind. The subsequent goal kick failed to re- lieve the pressure, T. Williams falling on the ball, and, passing T. Roberts, finished up by shooting behind. A foul against the home- sters helped an attack by Chirk, but Jack Jones and Ogilvie proved to be stumbling blocks. A sudden rush by Chirk, who were further favoured by a free kick close in, made things look dangerous for. Rhyl, and Seth vv ii- liams appeared to be about to effect the fall of their citadel when Johes rushed out and made a clever clearance, for which he was ap- plauded. Splendid work by the half-back trio once again enabled- the homesters to press. Roberts seized on the ball, and opened well to Edwards, who centred beautifully with a back- ward shot, and Dick Owen sent in a terrific shot, which the custodian caught with difficulty but managed to clear, the ball flying over the ),e( "I crossbar. From the goal kick Chirk got going, and a moment later Smith essayed a shot which sent the ball flying yards above the crossbar. Midfield play then ensued, the leather eventually finding its way into the grand stand, and from the subsequent, throw-in Negus passed to Harris, but he was robbed by Ogilvie. At this stage the tactics of the home forwards were very commendable, and for a time the opposing defence was kept very busy, but Jones, the custodian, had a rather easy time, Povey and H. Jones playing a sterling game, otherwise the forwards would have got through. A fierce battle continued to rage in the Rhyl quarters, Edwards being conspicuous for a neat pass to T. Roberts, and he made a capital run, and to avert disaster H. Jones put the ball out of play. Some rather desultory midfield play then ensued, after which Chirk had a spell at pressing and forced a corner, the ball being badly placed. Jack Jones next ran the ball up the field, beating all opposition, and finished up by placing S. Roberts in pos- session, but he was dispossessed by Povey, the ball travelling to midfield. W. Roberts re- turned the ball to the Chirk quarters, Wil- liams passing to Bob Edwards, who made a creditable attempt, the leather grazing the up- right and going behind—an attempt for which he was deservedly applauded. Still pressing, Rhyl forced a corner, which was just cleared when the whistle went for the interval, when there was no score. When the game resumed both sides attacked furiously, and for a while play ruled fairly even, both custodians being tested. En- couraged by the shouts of their supporters, the homesters made a determined onslaught on the visitors' citadel, a beautiful centre from T. Roberts resulting in T. Williams bringing Jones to his knees with a stinging ground shot, which, after an exciting tussle was placed behind. The visitors now engaged in all manner of tactics, with the result that one or two of their players were reproved by the referee. A somewhat weak clearance by Ogil- vie let the visitors in, but he soon covered his mistake, and swung the ball out to Jack Jones, who relieved by sending the ball into the Chirk quarters, where Williams and Roberts were seen to advantage, the former having ex- ceptionally hard lin&s. Rhyl continued to have the best of matters, the whole quintette line showing a great improvement on their pre- vious encounter against Crewe. Edwards was playing a splendid game, and time after time drew his opponents after him. Towards the close the game became more exciting, and Povey checked a dangerous rush on the part of Dick Owen. Hands against the visitors gave the home team a further advantage, but Hughes shot behind. Play continued to range in the Chirk quarters, and just after Dick Owen had been pulled up for offside the whistle sounded full time, no score having been registered, which will necessitate a re- play at Chirk. It was a good game through- out, the homesters being slightly the superior team.
Colwyn Bay Reserves v. Abergele R.W.F. On Saturday, a further visit of the Abergele team was made to the Colwyn Bay ground. This was the third meeting with the Fusiliers, and as the two preceding matches had ended in a win each for both elevens, great interest was evinced in the game. Abergele came down strongly represented whilst the homesters were minus Downes, Cooper, and Quinton, their three best players. T. 0. Evans, Bond, and Rowlands filled the breach. The teams lined up before Referee Jones in the following order:— Colwyn Bay: Goal, Dicken; backs, Wheater (capt.) and Rowlands; halves, J. Edwards, Bond, and G. Hughes; forwards, Wilson, Reck- less, J. Owen, T. 0. Evans, and R. Roberts. Abergele: Goal, C. Price; backs, E. H Wil- liams and O. H. Jones; halves, S. Evans, Shep- herd, and A. Davies; forwards, M. Jones, T. Jones, W. Jones (capt.), R. Hughes, and G. Stewart. The visitors won the toss, and elected to kick down the hill. J. Owen set the sphere in motion for the Bay, who were quickly stopped, and W. Jones ran through, only to be cleverly robbed by Roberts. Hands against the Bay spelt danger, but G. Hughes cleared. Not to be denied, the visitors continued to press, and their efforts were at last crowned with success, W. Jones giving Dicken no chance. From the centre, Wilson got away, and a goal was given against Abergele, from which J. Owen just missed. Play was quickly transferred to the lower goal, where Dicken cleared from Moss Jones, but the rebound came to the same player, and his second shot was successfvul in I adding to the score. There was no mistaking the seriousness of the visitors. They were playing to, win, and only having a weak team opposing them, their own idea was to add to their goal average. Before the interval W. Jones added No. 3 for them. Half-time, Aber- gele, 3; Colwyn Bay Res., 0. Re-starting up the slope, the Abergeleites soon found their feet, and Moss Jones getting in one of his characteristic runs, placed nicely to his brother, who experienced hard luck. A good run by J. Edwards forced C. Price to clear. Immediately after this, Edwards again got away and Price had to concede a corner to save his citadel. This, however, was kicked out. Reckless was next conspicuous wich a grand individual attempt, but to the chagrin of all he overran the leather. Taken to the other end, W. Jones scored a fourth for Aber- gele, and directly afterwards the same player added a fifth. From the centre, Price was again visited, and Wilson was unlucky in not scoring, the custodian being forced. to run out to clear. From this onwards, there was no holding the visitors. Stewart added a sixth, and Davies a seventh. Nothing further took place up to the call of time. Final score:— Abergele R.W.F., 7; Cohvyn Bay Res., 0.
Penmaenmawr v. Bangor Reserves. City Men Lose League Points. Ironical cries of "Play up, Conway" came from the Bangor Reserve eleven as they turned out to meet the side representing Penmaen- mawr, which fased them on the Groesffordd Field on Saturday. To some extent the gibe was justified, for there were at least' four of the defunct "Blues" supporting the Quarry- men. The doughty "Now" Ellis helped Ed- wards at back with great effect, while the brunt of the attack was borne by the right wing, J. R. Jones and L. H. Roberts, also Con- way boys. "J.R." had only just been reinstated as an amateur, and he celebrated his belated return to the arena by scoring Penmaenmawr's first goal in a really remarkable manner, and by playing a beautiful game throughout in partnership with his old colleague, "L.H." The latter was also in capital form. The second point was mainly due to his dash and resource. Bangor were minus Burns and Evans, but they were admirably assisted by three Col- legians, a fact which somewhat warranted the retort of "Play up, Collegians" from the quarry men. Operations opened briskly. Despite the frozen condition of the ground, neither team fought shy of hard knocking. Ends were changed at top speed, and the tackling by the two defences was of the keenest possible char- acter. "J.R.n and Roberts were excedingly busy on the home right, and steam hammer shots rained upon Evans and Metcalfe, each of whom defended stoutly. On the other side, Davies and Jack Williams were far from giv- ing Edwards and Ellis a peaceful experience. About fifteen minutes of fairly even play had elapsed when the Bangor outside right 'beat Coverley with a neat shot at close quarters. The homesters introduced retaliatory measures in a businesslike manner, but two or turee tolerable efforts were frustrated by the visit- ing defence. Eventually, however, Meredith's Conway understudy wormed his way into position, and one of the finest shots seen on a local ground for many a day beat Ted Owen all along the line. J. R.' beautiful effort roused the spectators to an unmistakable pitch of enthusiastic admiration. At half-time the score was thus even with a goal each. In the second moiety the quarrymen proved the superior lot in attack. The halves fed with discretion and the quintette worked with a will. Bangor defended bravely, however,per- sistent volleying at short range being negoti- ated effectively. Finally virtue was rewarded. A sharp skirmish took place right in the mouth of the Bangor goal, and a pretty move- ment between Bob Owen and L. H. Roberts culminated when the latter rushed his col- league, with the visiting keeper and the ball into the net. With a few minutes more to go, the city men made strenuous efforts to equal- ise, but these were futile. The final result stood in Penmaenmawr's favour by two goals to one. The teams were:—Bangor: Ted Owen; W. Evans and Metcalfe; W. Jones, H. J. Davies, and W. Jones; Rogers, Glaves, A. Owen, H. Davies, and J. Williams. Penmaenmawr Coverley; W. -Edwards and Owen Ellis; Edwards, Foulkes, and R. Owen; J. R. Jones, L. H. Roberts, Trevor Roberts, Bob Owen, and E. Roberts. Referee: Mr R. Hersee, Llandudno.
Football Notes. [BY "VIGILANT.* ] There is no gainsaying the fact that the Llan- dudno Amateurs are keeping up the good namo they have established for themselves in shewing excellent consistant form. To draw the week previous at Portmadoc with the Madooites was a performance few teams are able to accomplish, whilst to make another draw on Saturday with the Bangor Swifts at Bangor by 3-3 was another good performance. The return of Johnnie Williams to the Amateurs' front rank has greatly improved the attack, and we shall expect to hear more good things of the Llandudno eleven ere the season closes. » » That Llanrwst is a peculiar team was demon- strated on Saturday at Gwydyr Park. For over half-an-hour the Holyhead men had practically matters all their own way, shewing a class of football which is rarely seen in L!anrwst, whilst the Bird's could do really nothing right. Up to that time th6re was no comparing the teams, but either the pace told on Holyhead, or the Poultry had taken the measure of the Angleseaites, for matters after that changed immensely. The Angleseaites looked all over like winners for a long while, especially when at half-time they led by two goals to nil, but the second half told its tale, and many are of opinion, with all due re- spect to the referee, that Llaurwst had won the match. However, the result is that the match will have to be replayed at Holyhead, where, I understand, good gates are obtainable. < < Joey Finchett, in goal, was as good as is ex- pected of him, bnt the frost hampered his deal- ing with the two first goals. R. D. Richards was a tower of strength in defending, plenty of which he had to do in the first half. Trevor also was a good defender, being resourceful and fall of staying power. George, the left half, had a very busy wing to cope with, but did it well. Llew Thomas was in his proper place as centre, and had a lion's share of the work of tackling to do. Bob Jones was also effective considering he onJy came at the last minute into the ranks. In the second half Archie Carter was simply clever, his powerful centres and accurate placing together with good shooting singling him out as the best forward. Cheetham showed excellent judgment, and was very successful with the pot shot that scored the third goal for his side. Humphrey Roberts scored an ideal header from Grenville'a overhead kick, and the latter is never so busy as when he is doing that sort of thing. Although Ned Griffiths is on the small side, no one could have improved on his goal that equalised matters. Altogether the teams played well in the second half. » Collier, in goal for the visitors, was no great shining light, and had he been more frequenty tested I think he would not have made such a good stand as his vis-a-vis. Coulan was a fine specimen of what a back Holyhead can produce, his athletic figure showing to great advantage upon the field. Ellis, the familiar face in the Bangorian ranks, was also in good form, and al- together he had a sinecure in the first half, and was well pressed in the second. Of the three haloes, Taylor, W. Jones, and E. T. Evans, they were a very capable trio and in their right places. Of the forwards there is nothing but praise due to them, for they are a well-balanced set with speed, tact, and plenty of dash about them. The brothers Brown are a very tricky and nimble pair, whilst O. B. Edwards is a splendid pivot, and Ross and Rowlands make up a capital right wing.
Williams, of Wern, Memorial. ON Monday afternoon, in the presence of a large galheringj the memorial stones of a new Congre- gational chapel in meir-ory of the eminent Welsh preacher, Williams, of Wern, were laid at Rhos- tyllen, near Wrexham. The Rev O. J. Owens (Ponciau), presided, the Rev J. S Evans, Cemmes, Anglesey, read a portion of Scripture, and the Rev Richard Evans, Nant, offered prayer. Mr Samuel Moss, M.P., in his address, referred to the valuable services rendered to the cause of Christ and to Congregationalism in the Wrexham district by Williams, of Wern, and expressed a hope that the God who had so abundantly crowned the work of that great preacher would also bless the efforts of the Congregationalists in that new chapel.

Football. LLANDUDNO AMATEURS v. BANGOR SWIFTS. ( Continued from Page 4). striking the post with a swift low shot. A few minutes later a foul was given against H. Jones, and the home left wing pair got away, H. O. Roberts having hard lines in not scoring. The Llandudnoites continued to press, and D. Griffiths sent in a beautiful shot which the visiting custodian again cleared in his own inimitable way. "Settle" now had a try, but the Swifts' custodian, who was on his best, behaviour, averted the danger. After some midfield play the sphere was put out, and from the throw-in, G. Davies got possession, and passed to J. E. Williams, who opened the Amateurs' score with a shot which gave the custodian no chance. There was during this half no denying the superiority of the home- team. They were playing as if for their lives, and from a centre by W. Owen, Jacob Williams headed in goal No. 2. There was only a short time to go, and the "Damagers" were one goal in arrears. Still more fire was infused into' their play, and with only three minutes to the end, J. E. Williams, amidst tremendous cheering, made the scores level, after a grand individual run through the whole of the Ban- gor defence. The whistle blew directly after this, with the score: Llan. Amateurs, 3; Bangor Swifts, 3. Notes on the Game. All the goals. strange to say, were scored against the wind. At one time it looked bad for the homesters. During the first half there was no doubt the Bangorians were decidedly superior, the only two of the home eleven who showed their true form being J. Williams and the genial skipper, G. Davies. At this stage I should like to pay my compliments to the latter on his having entered the happy bonds of wedlock. May he be as successful in his marriage as he is in his football, and f this be so happiness will always fall to his lot. What had happened to the Amateur forwards cannot be fathomed; perhaps it was that the training which they indulged in had been car- ried to excess, but whatever the cause, in the first half they made a sorry show. On re- starting, a decided change came over them. Combining in their old style, they were soon in dangerous proximity to Williams, and if it had not been for the sterling defence of the latter, coupled with that of his backs, I should now have to chronicle a win for Llandudno. But nevertheless it must not be thought that the Bangorians were a weak team; far from it, they played with a dash that was refresh- ing to watch, and what a flyer they possess in H. Evans. How he has escaped the notice of the Bangor Combination directors is not known, but there is no doubt that he would be a decided acquisition to their or any other Combination team. In conclusion, I wish to say that I hope an equally good game will be put up in the re-play, and may the best team win.
