WELSH AMATEUR CUP. (Fourth Round.) HOLYHEAD v. LLANFYLLIN. SWIFTS STILL UNBEATEN. [By "Cybi.") Glorious weather, a record gate, and a per- fect ground. Suoh were the conditions on Sat- urday at the Oval, when Holyhead met Lktn- fyllin after the draw the previous Saturday. Intense interest was evinced in the fixture with the result that a largo crowd invaded the field to witness the match. The. crowd was good tempered and appreciative, and applauded any good move on the part of friend or foe. Re- feree U. Parry, of Oswestry, lined the teams as follows: — Holyhead: W. Collier, goal; T. Conlan and W. H. Parry, full backs; W. Taylor, W. T. Jones, and R. Ellis half backs; H. R-oberls, W. Brown, J. Rowlands, F. Bogue, and H. Brown forwards. Llanlyllin: Holland, goal; Hammond and D. T. Lloyd, full backs; D. T;. Griffith;?, J. C. Lloyd, and E. R. Jones, half baoks; D. But- ters, R. Griffith, S. Wiiiiains, W. Eva.ns, and Ishmoel Jones, forwards. Ilho spin of the coin favoured the South Walians, who elected to play down hill, thus forcing the homosters to face the sun. Row- Lands having set the ball moving, the visitors' defence was immediately pierccd, but Bogue placed behind. From the goal kick, Fili.s, after some juggling, got possession, a,nod sent an accu- rate pass to W. Brown, who was in front of the goal mouth, but was palpably offside. A similar fate mot a pass from Bogue to II. Brown. rLbo Southerners at last woke up, and advanced into the home territory, but Sydney Williams sent the leather soaring over the cpc)ssb;tr. From the goalkick thaat enaued, Rowlands got pos- session, and dtashed up in fine style, but ahot too high. A few minutes later Holland was called upon to save from Ellis. A fine move- ment by the home left culminated in a telling shot by H. Brown. ROWj o FINDS THE NET. Holland fistod out in the direction of Jack Rowlands, who stood in front of tho goal- mouth, and Jaok returned the leather like lightning, and beat Holland all ends up, open- ing the sooro for Holyhead anncust groat enthu- siasm. A few minutes later the visitors com- mitted an infringement of the rules. Ellis took charge of the free kick ajid scored from about seven yards off the penalty line. The* visitors a.t this period attacked persistently, Collier being kept very busy, and during a melee in front of the goal, Collier, in clearing fell with W. Evans on top of him. Griffiths immediately took advantage of the opening, and netted the leather amidst general applause. From midfield, H. Brown gained possession and passed to Boguo, who severely tested Hol- land. From a. throw, Rowlands scored an off- side goal; immediately after Tavlor missed by inches only. A fine advance by the Southerners appeared like realising when Ellis darted across the goalmouth, and cleared the sphere out of danger. H. Roberta secured, and made a fine dash up the right wing, and sent in a fine crocs shot. but Holland cleared success- fully. Several attacks by the visitors were hurled back by Conlan and Parry, the former especially being in fine form. The home right instigated a fine move, H. Roberts giving W. Brown an opening, which the latter took ad- vantage of, and eoored the third goal for Holy- head. At half time Holyhead led by 3 goals to 1. On resuming, Holyhe-ad attacked, and forced a fruitless corner. An advance by the visitors resulted in Butters sending in a fine cross shot from the right, which defeated Collier. The homesters n'ow pressed severely, Bogue heading over the crossbar, W. Brown sending the ball against it, and Rowlands skimming the up- right. Ellis also sent in a stinger, but Holland kept his charge intact. THE VISITING GOAL BOMBARDED. A foul against the visitors outside the penalty area forced Holland to ooncede a. oorn-er, but Parry sent t,he sphere over the bar. Holland at this period of the game was absolutely bom- barded, and liad some difficulty in clearing from Roberts and H. Brown. A foul within tiho penalty area against LLanfyllin caused con- siderable exaitoment. The burly Conlan was entrusted with the kick, and he made no mis- take, piioing the sphere safely in the corner of the net. The visitors at this period of tho game committed several infringements of the rules, and were mulcted with free kicks. Ellis took charge of one, and from a.bout six var.d3 from tho penalty line, sent in a beautiful" shot over the heads of the defenders. The 0011 touched: Holland's hands and flow over his head safely into the net amidst great enthusiasm. This was the last goal netted, the game ending as follows: — Holyihead 5, Llaniyllin 2.
