Colwyn Bay v. Flint. Welsh Amateur Cup (Replayed).-Third Round. Played at Colwyn Bay on Saturday. Heavy rains fell during the week, and the field was in a rather sodden condition. It will be re- membered that the Bayites were successful in playing a drawn game at Flint the Saturday previous. The referee (Mr G. H. Russell, of Chester), was late in putting in an appear- ance, and the game was, therefore, delayed some time. McCann won the toss, and elected to kick down hill, with the wind at his back. The teams lined up in the following order:- Colwyn Bay: Goal, W. E. Hughes; backs, H. Hughes, and A. N. Other; halves, Campbell, E. Griffiths, and O. E. Williams; forwards, T. Wellings, W. T. Jones, T. McCann (captain), W. Jones, and J. LI. Owen. Flint: Goal, H. Lloyd; backs, J. E. Lloyd and Bentham; halves, J. Rush, J. Price, and W. Jones; forwards, Hampson, O'Neill, Jack- son, E. Evans, and H. O. Williams. Jackson commenced operations, and before many minutes had elapsed W. T. Jones, after a pass from the left, opened the Bay's scoring, Bentham being to blame for missing his kick. This early success put the Bayites and their Supporters on the best of term's with them- selves. Flint now pressed, and with pretty combination they got in close proximity to Hughes. W. Jones next tried a pot, which went outside. A foul against Campbell nearly let in Flint, but the free kick was put behind The Bayites got away, offside against J. Ll. Owen nullifying the attempt. McCann tried a run on his own, but Lloyd cleared by granting a corner. Although the Bay continued to press and had the advantage of the wind, they failed to further their score. Half-time: Colwyn Bay, 1; Flint, 0. The outlook for the Bayites for the second half was very black, and a win for Flint seem- ed very probable. The spectators were looking downhearted, but when the Bayites pressed up the hill they quickly revived, and cheered their favourites as loudly as before. This half was hard fought, and both ends were vis- ited in turn. Several chances were missed by the Bayites, and the same can be said of the visitors, who were not equal to the task of beating the sharp defence of the homesters. McCann and Wellings were the only forwards of the Bayites to get away, and they were on some occasions extremely unlucky. No scoring was recorded during this half, and thus the Bayites retired winners by the narrow margin of a goal to nil. Final: Colwyn Bay, 1; Flint, 0. Notes on the Game. Colwyn Bay, although winners, were not in their usual happy form. The defence, with the exception of Campbell, was very sound, but the player mentioned was not in his usual form. McCann was the star of the team, and although he did not score he initiated some very fine movements, which, however, were not improved upon. Wellings and W. T. Jones were a splendid wing, but W. Jones and J. Ll. Owen on the left were sadly off colour. For Flint the defence was good, and played a sound game with the exception of the miskick on the part of Bentham, which led to the downfall of their goal. O'Neill was the shining hdlt of a smart forward line, and received great help from his confreres. Colwyn Bay will now meet Rhos Rangers at Colwyn Bay on February 17th.
Llanrwst v. Portmadoc. (North Wales Coast League.) The Portmen Victorious. [BY "VIGILANT."] The "Sons of Madoc" Pt-id their first visit this season on Saturday to Gwydyr Park. Their ranks were not the strongest they could muster, because Evan Davies in goal, Bill Evans at back, and the flier, Vaughan, were all absent, and to add to this the nimble Mose- ley failed to arrive from Holyhead to help his old colleagues, so that the Portmen only played ten men. The defence of the Roosters is all right, but what a peculiar set are the forwards! Alack- a-day that the once proud Rooster should be thus handicapped! The visit of the Portmen in days gone by used to infuse great enthusi- asm in the contest, and now things have fallen mightily flat. The "birds" had quite as much of the game on Saturday as their opponents, but they failed egregiously on several occa- sions to snap or utilise the chances that came their way. Trevor failed with a penalty, and, of course, he is not the first to do so; but what I blame most is the vacillating attack, the want of vim and dash and determination on the part of the Portmen. In a breakaway, for instance, the Portmen won the match by sheer speed. Referee Brown Jones, of Rhyl, was in com- mand of the players, who were as follows:— Llanrwst: Goal, Joey Finchett; backs, Will Trevor Jones and R. D. Richards; halves, Geo. Williams, D. Thomas, and -Bob Owen; for- wards, Archie Carter, C. Elias, Cheetham, Grenville Jones, and Ned Griffiths. Portmadoc: Goal, Pike; backs, A. Hughes and E. Jones; halves, W. Roberts, G. Davies, and R. Jones; forwards, W. Hart, Owen Jones, T. Jones, and R. D. Roberts. The Portmen won the toss, and played to- wards the river goal. The ground, after the recent heavy rains, was sodden, and around the goals was a quagmire, which made matters very awkward for those who were mostly in it. The opening exchanges were tame after Cheet- ham had commenced operations. Getting pos- session, however, by good judgment, Bob Owen gave Pike a lovely handful with a long drop- ping shot, and the latter cleared coolly and nicely. The left winger, Roberts, of the Port- men, secured possession, and running at great speed along the wing, slammed in a grand shot, which Finchett cleared very smartly. The Portmen afterwards kept up the advan- tage, with the result that Owen Jones defeated Finchett with what appeared rather a soft goal. From the midfield kick the homesters worked well towards Pike, and during a spell of pressure G. Davies broke a rule within the penalty area. Trevor Jones was entrusted with the kick, but he shot bang into Pike's hands, who cleared, but a narrow escape of returning the ball was avoided by A good and timely clearance. Roberts on the left again made good headway for the visitors, sending a lovely shot across, which was met by Hart, who shot strongly in, only to find Finchett clear well. From the clearance the homesters worked the ball down to the vicinity of Pike, but the weakness and want of dash on the part of the Llanrwst players lost them the ball. D. Thomas put an end to a severe spell of pressure by hitting the crossbar with a terrific shot, an attempt which deserved a better fate than being cleared. The Roosters had several chances, but Cheetham seemed easily dispos- sessed when in a favourable position. Give- and-take play followed until half-time arrived vrith the score: Portmadoc, 1; Llanrwst, 0. The second half was more evenly contested, but, as often proves the case after some pres- sure on the Port goal, where Pike was defend- ing gallantly, a magnificent run was made over half the length of the field by O. Jones, who evaded all opposition and outpaced his opponents, and taking good aim, sent in a long range grounder, which completely beat Finchett, and entered the corner of the net. To be two goals in arrear at so late a stage of the game was not cheering for the Roosters, but they stuck to their guns gamely, and at all times held the advantage; but the weakness of the forwards in shooting power was lament- ably apparent. At length the desideratum came from the foot of Elias, who scored the first and only goal for Llanrwst with a good shot. This success put a little more go into the play, but Llanrwst could not add to their score, and so the final result was: Portmadoc, 2; Llanrwst, 1.

North Wales Coast Football Association. Three Protests Dismissed. Junior Cup Semi-Final. THE Executive Committee of the above asso- ciation met at the Plas Mawr Restaurant, Con- way, on Wednesday afternoon, Mr R. John Hughes, Penmaenmawr, presiding. There were also present Messrs Henry Lloyd (Con- way), W. Llewelyn Jones (Llanrwst), H. Heap (Colwyn Bay), A. Slater (Llandudno), p. Ll. Hughes (Portmadoc), A. Myer (Colwyn*Bav), and the hon. secretary (Mr J. Llewelyn Wil- liams, Holywell). After the secretary had reported the result of the third round of the Junior Cup, the exe- cutive were busily engaged in dealing with three protests. In the first instance Prestatyn protested against Conway on the ground that one of their goals was three inches short. The committee decided in favour of Conway. Bangor protested against Holyhead for play- ing a number of players in the Junior Cup who had previously participated in the North Wales Amateur Cup. After the Holvhead representative had stated that he had not re- ceived a rule book until a few days ago, the committee decided not to entertain the pro- test, and returned the protest fee to the Ban- gor Club. Penmaenmawr also protested on a similar ground against Bangor Swifts. Mr R. Price represented the Swifts, and again the commit- tee ruled the protest out of order. Junior Cup Semi-Final. The draw for the semi-final resulted as fol- lows:- Bangor Swifts v. Holyhead Swifts, on Ban- gor Football ground, Feb. 10. Referee, Mr W. Llewelyn Jones, Llanrwst. Conway Y. Greenfield, at Llandudno, on Feb. 17. Referee, \Mr Slater, Llandudno. Referees' Reports. Mr J. Roberts, Bangor, reported Bontnew- ydd for molesting him during a South Carnar- vonshire League match with the Carnarvon R.W.F. at Bontnewydd. It was resolved that a sub-committee be ap- pointed to look into the matterMessrs R. J. Hughes, J. Llewelyn Williams, and D. Llew- elyn Hughes were appointed to meet at Car- narvon with power to act.
Penmaenmawr Town Improvement Association. A Year's Work. THE second annual meeting of the Penmaen- mawr Town Improvement Association was held at the Oxford Hall, on Tuesday evening. Mr Henry Kneeshaw, J.P., D.L., president of the Association, occupied the chair, and there was a very satisfactory attendance of the general public. Dr J. R. Williams, chairman of the execu- tive committee, proposed the adoption of the report and balance-sheet. The report was read as follows:— "The best thanks are hereby conveyed to the subscribers, generally and to all who have aided in any way to make the Association a success. "The receipts from all sources are an im- provement on the first year, thus enabling the committee to do more towards popularis- ing Penmaenmawr and making it more widely known than ever before to the travelling pub- lic, with the result that the number of visitors exceeded previous records. "One of the chief aims of the Association is to make our town better known by advertising its scenic beauty and its health-giving quali- ties, and to assist in making it the beau-ideal of a watering place. To accomplish this, the committee has been able to so spend the money entrusted to it as to get the very best possible value. We may instance the fact that we have been able to publish and issue 12.500 beautifully illustrated booklets, 2,000 lists of householders, etc., and this year have included in the official list a map of Penmaenmawr, for the conveni- ence of intending visitors. Advertisements have been inserted in a series of the most re- presentative daily papers, from which 1,500 replies have been received, which in itself is a significant proof of the value of the press as an advertising medium. "The committee have made strenuous efforts in conjunction with the Urban District Coun- cil as well as the T.I.A. and Urban District Council of Llanfairfechan to secure concessions from the Railway Company for improvement of the services, and they have already in a few instances acceded to our request. We are pleased to note that a late train has recently been put on, leaving Bangor at 9-10 p-in. in- stead of that at 8-40 p.m. on Saturdays, there- by providing a connection with Anglesea and South Carnarvonshire. We have every reason to believe that eventually » daily service will be granted owing to the representation made. "A matter of considerable interest to the public generally has been introduced by the Association in a scheme for the conversion of Brynmor-terrace Gardens into public gardens, which would entail but a small expenditure, and would undoubtedly prove a great attrac- tion and improvement to the main approach to the town from the station and shore. It is satisfactory to know that the project is favour- ably looked upon by the owner and the Coun. cil, and that a committee of both public bodies are negotiating with a view to leasing the same. "Special efforts have been made by the com- mittee to obtain from the Gas Company a re- duction in the price of this commodity, and we desire to make it known that they have con- sented to make an allowance of 6d per 1,000 cubic feet, provided payment of the account is made within one month. "We have the assurance of the Gilchrist trustees that our application for a course of popular lectures, to be delivered in Penmaen- mawr, is receiving their careful consideration. "The committee earnestly desires that as many of the public as possible will attend the annual meeting, when every opportunity will be given for the discussion of various matters appertaining to the welfare of Penmaenmawr as a health and holiday resort, and that dur- ing the ensuing year they will respond gener- ously to the financial demands of the com- igittee." From the balance-sheet it appeared that the total income for the year amounted to- JB97 46 3d, and the balance in the bank to be ex- pended in the spring was JB7 Is 8d. Dr Wil- liams complimented the Association and the district generally upon the excellent work per- formed during the year, and expressed opti- mistic hopes for the future of the organisa- tion. Mr W. Parry Jones seconded, and the vicar, Dr Jenkins, with Messrs S. H. Roberts, R. D. Jones, and others supported the mfttion, which was carried unanimously. A strong list of officers were appoixae&
