All the members of the team seemed to have sfcruok an energetic vein, and played in a manner never witnessed at the Oval before. If the present form is kept up there will be no doubt as to the result of the League fixtures aDd the cup-tie this season. Tho LJanllechid Swifts have aA last started in earnest, and avgain they will play on the Talysarn Farm field. Tho members for the last few days havo bad several practices. The team havo lost tlie services of their usual Left wing, and their forward rank in consequence will be weakened. Mr Lloyd Roberts has been chosen to captain the team, and the duties of hon eeeretxrf has fallen upon Mr W. J. Jones, 7, Llanllochid-roud, who will be pleased to re- ceive co'iimunications from junior teams of this locality desiring to axrajtg,3 friendly fixtures. On Sat trday they moot their old rivals—the Rangers, from the Llaidegai Mountain, on the Talysarn ground, when a good game, I hope, will bo the result. < A club under the name of Carnarvon United has been admitted to tho North Wales Coast League (Division I.). In tormetr* years the R. W. F. a.nd the Colts were keen rivals, but this season they have both amalgamated, and a strong team has.boon got together. Sergeant Bast.on has the teun iin charge. On Saturday they received a visit from the Bangor Celts, and a ra,re tissle was witnessed by the large crowd present .t the Oval. The teams were evenly matched, and as both dubs netted the ball twice, a drawn game resulted. • » »,» The TIanglor Celts are going strongfasi at present, em-d for the Junior Cup they will be hard to beat. On Saturday they will pa.y a visit to Penmiaonmawr. 0 0 Beaumaris, who havo this year joined the Coast Association, and em. fee red for tho Junior Cup, wero at honie on Saturday to the Bangor Rangers. The visitors, with the exception of Ted Owen, their goalkeeper, had their full cup tciam, whilst Willie Humphreys, tho utility man of the Bangor Combination, assisted the bom ester g. The Rangers proved too strong for their opponents, and easily won by four clear coals. Hwfa Williams was a tower of strength ii- the defence of the winners. What! Holyhead 6 goals, Conway 2? Well, I anticipated ia much better show by Conway, who, by the way, have an excellent toam. As tihe game was only a friendly one, it dtd not matter much, but when they will be assisted by Hwfa Williams at. full back, sorile good results may be looked forward to. » « Tho Red Stars, from Bangor, ha.vo not yeL commenced their seceon; threa of their mem bers donned the Searlet and Blue shirt for the Bangor second team, and each justified his selection by playing a fair game. # The Friars School F.C. have started, and capital pr icticos have been carried OIL The team will rot be quite as strong as last season, owing to the fact that some of the players have left tho school to" take college courses. » Contrary to expectations, Bangor Y.M.C.A. defeated tho Normal College by 3 to 2. They have every reason to be proud of their vic- tory. Harry Smith appears once again in the ranks of the forwards, and the two goals he ,%c?ored c,o hiir. -If' crel It. Alb-rb Go<>dwin, gre' in goal, appeared for the first time, and he saved same very g'oot shots. With a little more practice l e will be a very useful custodian. H. S. Evans and R. W. Roberts, at full baok, played a sound game, and frequently stopped some ugly rushes. » » The halves tljd not oomo up to the previous Saturday, btrs improved greatly in tho second moiety of the gome. Thiee useful members of the. team wore oonspicuous by their absence, namely, R. Hartley (oapt.), Fred Zoller, and W. Donaldson. Hie forwards, although not ac- customed one to another, played fairly well on the whole. H-arry Smith and Roger Lewis de- serve special mention. « At a meeting of the committee of tho Rhyl Victoria. Football Club, on Monday, Mr Tom. Robinson, chairman, presented Mr J. Hayes, on behalf of the committee, with some slight token of their respect and appreciation of his ser- vices as trainer to the club last season (who leaves for Canada this week). He said they very much regretted has departure, and wished him every success abroad. Mr Ilayes suitably re? pond ad. To-day (Saturday) Rhyl Victoria will meet Hawarden Bridge at Shotton, in the Flint- shire league
