BANGOR RESERVES v. COLWYN BAY. A SLUMP IN GOALS. rhe display of the Reserves this season has been so disappointing that, although there was no other attraction in the locality on Sat- urday, there was a very poor muster of specta- tors to witness the gamo. Both sides were well represented, and a. good game was anticipated. The homesters won the toss, and Colwyn Bay at once made tracks for their opponents' goal, Moss Jones putting behind. From a pass by Oliver Griffith, Bob Evans dashed down the right. the latter sent over to the left, but Hughie Owen was given offside. A few min- utes later, however, Bob oame again, and dropped the ball with splendid judgment over tho heads of several players, and Oliver Griffith headed through. For a time Bangor were much the better side, their forwards being much too good for the opposing defence. The right wing pair in particular were in fine form, and it was not long before R. T: Evans again brought about the downfall of the Colwyn goal by means of a. fine centre, which Wellings headed through his own goal. Soon afterwards Burns increased the lead with a shot which gave Hall- wood no eaxthly chance. Although the visitors were completely outclassed, they did not lose heart, and made several dargerous rushes from one of which Tom McCann scored. At the in- terval Bangor led by three goals to one. In the second half, the superiority of the homesters was even more pronounced, Colwyn Bay being rarely dangerous, although on one occasion Moss Jones looked like getting thrug-h when Alf. Thomas brought him down heavily. Unfortunately, lowajds the end, Ned Griffith, Colwyn Bay, who had not played a particularly olean game, got at loggerheads with Burns, and the referee had to intervene. Soon afterwards, the final whistle blew, having Bangor victors by 7 go--Is to one. Te teams were as folows:- Bangor: Ted Owen; J. Owen and A. Tho- mas T. A. Griffith, W. Parry, and W. Jones; R. T. Evans, C. Burns, W. O. Griffith, Joe Thomas, and H. Owen. Colwyn Bay C. Hallwood; R. Campbell and O. E. Williams; E. Griffiths, T. Wellings, and R. Rowlands Moss Jones, W. T. Jones, T. McCann, Bond, n d J. Ll. Owen.
CARNARVON BEAT CONWAY. AFTER A SPIRITED GAME. (By "Recorder.") Far and away the bigest gate of tho season was attracted to the Carna-rvon Oval on Satur- day to witness the match between the local team and Conway, under the auspices of the North Wales Coast League. A large, but not a.n over- onthiusiatshc, bodv of supporters came down with tho Conway team, who apparently changed in the train, so that the came, which was controlled by Mr Caleb Th; >mas. Bangor, started somewhere near the advrti^od time. Con way 1;1 their best team, H. J. Davies, Ban^o-, f.i-rwj out for them, and the Carnar- von wh -i were photographed before tho comire •• niont of the gamo. were also representa- »iVC' ^nc- 'veatker was beautifully fine, when teams lined up as folows:— Carnarvon. United: G. II. Jones, goal; J. Trevor Williams and W. R. Thomas, full backs; J. Williams, W. Hughes, and G. Palmer, half- backs; R. H. Roberts, Tom Roberts, W. Jones, H. Roberts, and J. Jones, forwards. Conway: Llcw. Parry, goal; Hwfa Williams and Owen fillis. full ba.cb; Shorn Jones, Bob Owen, and W. Saunders, half-backs; J. R. Jones, T. Athcrton, H. J. Davies, Joe Williams, and W. Stone, forwards. Kicking off down the slope the homesters soon got into their stride, the right wing making good headway, but Hwfa WiUiams administered a check, and set his own forwards going. H. J. Davies covered a good deal of ground, when W. Hughes dispossessed him. and W. R. Tho- mas a few minutes later sent the ball well down the field. For fouling Joe Williams, William Hughes was penalised clofo ia, and Hwla \Vil- liams tried a long punt, but he sent the ball a trifle high. Conway, at this early utage of the game, were ha-ving by far the best of matters, and Atherton registered what was palpably an offside goaL R. II. Roberts was next seen tearing down the field, and ho parted at the oorrect moment to Tom Robertt.. who headed just a few inches wide of the mark. THE PACE WAS RATHER HOT. the ball traveling quickly from end to end, Con- way having slightly the better of the argument. Hwfa proved more than a match for R. H. Ro- berts, who, however, played a desperately hard game. The venue was changed to the Conway "Castle" for a while, but the Carnarvon for- wards encountered a stubborn defence, though Tom Roberts almost piloted the ball into the net with his head. Quito unexpected Conway scored, and Tom Roberts put on the equaliser for the homesters. Towards the interval Car- narvon did a good deal of pressing, and the ball was continually sent a few inches wide, Tom Roberts being the chief offender in the matter of accuracy. At the interval the scores were level. The opening movements of the second half saw Car- narvon pressing, and everything pointed to the downfall of the Conway "Castle." when Tom Roberts got offside. Bob Owen then raised the ire of the crowd by committing what they imagined to be a foui. Again Tom Roberts practically threw away a goal by infringing the offside rule. Bob Owen saved a certain goal by neatly dispossessing J. Jones, who was in a dangerous position. Whilst the home forwards showed clever midfield tactics their judgment in the goalmouth was decidedly "off," lajiding the ball anywhere but into the net. On the other hand Conway were dangerous, whenever they got near the Carnarvon "Castle." On one occasion the home outside right cannoned the bail against the far post, and it ro-bounded to the foot of Tom Roberts, who was standing in front of the Conway custodian, but the alleged shot he sent in was easily negotiated SPECTATORS CHEER LUSTILY. One or two exciting incidents led to- an accession of interest in the game by the spectators, who lustily cheered the players. They became very demonstrative when Tom Roberts travelled right up to Llew. Parry but alas! ho finished up very tamely. Fortunately for Car- n1^rvon ^°'->er's dashed up, and meeting th-o custodian s foot cleaxanco (<& very unwise clearance, by the way), he slammed the ball into the net. The home forwards now gave trouble to the Conway defenders, playing for all they were worth, and R. II. Roberts scored an offside goal. J. Jones and Hwfa Williams had a tussle, the Bangor man having to concede a corner, from which Hughie Roberts headed through in brilliant style. The proceedings became even more animated, and the spectators were repeatedly yelling words of encouragement. Hereabouts W. R. Thomas proved himself an exceptionally smart player, as also did Palmer, against whom the Conway right wing could do notmng. Even tho Carnarvon spectators cheered when Parry, fastening to the ball, some distance from the Carnarvon citadel, drove it along tho ground at a terrific speed. To all appearances it was going behind, but it curved into the goal, and tho custodian showed great smartness in sav- ing at the expense of a corner. For a while, Carnarvon had tho best of tho exchanges, but at length Stone forced in a corner off Trevor Williams, and he placed so accurately that Parry had not the slightest difficulty in scoring. A weak clearance by the Conway custodian enabled Walter Jones to put on the fourth goal for the homester. In a couple of minutes afterwards, H. J. Davics scored most unexpectedly for Con- wa.y, after the ball had been cannoned against the cross-bar. Conway strove hard to equalise, but the homesters were by no means inactive and the Conway defenders were repeatedly called upon to save their charge from disaster. In the concluding stages, Hwfa Williams upset J. Jones and the crowd, greatly incensed swarmed on the ground, but the officials managed to restore order in a. few minutes. There was no further scoring, the final result being:— Carnarvon, 4; Conway, 3.
FESTINIOG v. LLANDUDNO. SEASIDERS' PLUCKY PLAY. THE QUARRYMEN VANQUISHED. A REGRETTABLE INCIDENT. (By '"Linesman.") The return fixture between the above teams in the Nor. Wales Coast League was played on the Recreation Ground, Blaenati Festiniog, on Saturday afternoon in fine weather. The playing pitch, however, was in a wretched con- dition. It is undoubtedly one of the worst grounds in North Wales. Pools of water, in some places about six or eight inches deep, dotted the ground, and on one wing the poor players had to wade through inches of mud. The _condition of the ground attectod play to a considerable extent. A quarter of an hour after the advertised time Referee W. Ll. Jones, Llanrw3t, called the teams together, and by this time there was a good crowd around the ropes. The teams were:- FeSiKimog: Goal, Ellis Hughes; backs, Meir- ion Jones and H. J. Rowlands; half backs, Bradley, Dick Roberta, and Jim Lloyd; for- wards Jack Jones, W. Williams, T. Roberts, Jno. Jones, and Tommy Roberts. Llandudno: Goal, J.'T. Williams; backs J. Loot and Charlie Roberts; half backs, Jacob Williams, Georgie Davies, and Isaac Marsh; Forwards, D. Gnffibhs, R. Parry, J. E. William*, Brookes-Evans, and H. Pearson. The seasiders won the spin of the ooin, and the homesters started the sphere, and imme- diately attacked, when Referee Jones noticed an infringement by a Llandudno man. The resulting free kick was placed to Jack Jones, who was clearly in an offside position. A run by the visitors was initiated by their famous centro forward, who placed an excellent oppon- tunjty to Pearson, but the latter was greatly handicapped by the mud, and his attempt went wide. Jno. Jones for the homesters, was now placed in possesion, and with his partner he made a sprint, but was soon checked by Lunt Jacob coming up and relieving. Rowlands and Meirion Jones kept up a fine defensive display and the Seasiders' front rank were unable to cope with their tactics. In a. few minutes afterwards the home men, to the evident de- light of their supporters, gave an exhibition of fine combination, and W. Williams put on the brushing touch with a lightning shot, which hit 'In the crossbar underneath, and dropped over tho line. The referoo immediately awarded the goal .1.. L_j I.. VUU i^mesiers, aitnough slight protests were made It is only fa.ir to state, however, that the ball dropped about six inches over the line. The Llandudno front rank next became aggres- sive, and Brookes-Evans was responsible for the neatest bit of work during the whole of the g,ame. When making a fine run he was fouled by W. Williams. The free kiok, however gave them no better position, and the ball was punted up the field by Mcirion Jones. The home outside left gave an exhibition of tricky foot- ball, and was a handful to keep in chock for J aIX1Ù and Charlie Roberts. Although only a youngster, he pLayed a. very plucky game and rMI well. QUARRYMEN MASTERS OF THE SITUATION. For some minutes now, the Quarry- men were the amsters of the situa- tion, aJ34 the black and white stripes ha.d &U their work cut out to pre- vent the homesters inoreasing their lead. The Seaside custodian a.ppea.red to be very uncorn- f or Labi in his position, and naturally so, con- sidering the faot that the ball at times stopped dead in the slush. He nearly gave his side away at this juncture, for after attempting to pick up the sphere, he let drive, and the ball wen againat T. Roberts, just skimming the aroesbar. Ifaia was a very near shave. Again the Qutorymon hemmed in their opponents, and a beautiful centre by the outside left was met by Jack Jones with his head, the ball curl- Lug outside the post. At this point, Llandudno tumbkd into the tactics of the Quarrymon, and they did like- wise. Johnny Williams, from the half field, sent in a. skier, and Brookes-Evans rushed up at lightning, speed, and cooly headed the ball into the net. This was the smartest goal of the day, although one which oame later on very nearly excelled it. The shooting of some of the Llandudno boys was becoming somewhat erra- tic, and they devoted themselves to combina- tion play, but the honi,, halves were quite couaj to the occasion, and kept them well at bay. A laughable incideait was now witnessed 'when Lunt and one of his opponents rushed for tho ball, which waa lying .in a deep pool of dirty water. Both men made for it with the result thai thqy were practically w»t to the akin. Br ok os-Eva us was playing one of his best games, particularly with his head. 7' The Quarrymen buckled Lo again, aaid W. Williams again tried his luck with a pot shot. It was driven with terrific force right for the goal, but Williams successfully diverted its course a.t the expense of a corner, and although well placed the be, 11 was feebly placed behind, Johnnie Wi!Harris was now the subject of ELt- rl I tention by the homesters' half way line. On one occasion he received a nasty back kick. Again the Seaside skipper was on the move, and a pacs to Griffiths neariy proved fatal to tho homes;e.;s for the to shot at the goal, and immediaely Johnnie Williams was oil the scene ajid completely kruocked the custodian off the ball, with no successful result, however. Both ends were visited in turns, and the play was of a very even character. Some beautiful hoad<work was witnessed as a result of the efforts of the Llandudno men, Brookes-Evans Ixjiing the initiator. Moiricai soon came to the rcwouc, and punted the ball with greai force up tho field, giving little Tommy Roberts posses- sion. The latter dribbled around Jacob, and aifio bea.t Charlie Iiuberts, but when he oame to Lunt ho was sent right about. "Ca<nOfn" Jones, as he is familiarly known by his quarry- men comrades, w-a3 playing a great forward game, and a/s he is considered a dead shot, frantic shouts were made to him to use his powers. This he did, and did well, the shot resulting in a corner kick being awarded his side. The kick a poor one, and i he IJan- dudno fine, who kept well up tho field, got go- ing with the result that Ellis Hughes was again testod, a.nd this time Brookes-EYans was re- sponsible for the latter making a most unique somersault. Tho goal appeared to be at the mercy of the Soasidcrs, but on account of their eagerneiss they failed to gain a lead, principally on account of Johnnie Williams and Brookes- Evans crashing togothor just when the former was a.bout to shoot. The home outside right was keeping well up the field-rlly too well up the fiey, for whenever the bail was given him, he was continually placed offside, and quite right too. He hindered his partners to a great degree in making progress by this oon- t; tinual infringement of the rules. DICK ROBERTS DEFENDS FINELY. Dick Roberts was a grand defender, as well as a feeder of his forwards, although on many occasions he kicked too hard to give his front line a.n opportunity. However, "Canon" got the ball and tried his luck again, but still the Seiaside custodian was on the qui vive, and al- though three men were upon him in a second, he ewne out of tho melee with flying colours. The "Quarry" goal was in jeopardy from this to halt time, and a shot by Griffiths deserved a better fate. He drove with great force against the upright, and on tho rebound, the Quarrymen were quickest on the ball, amid aloared aitor some difficulty. The crowd ap- peared delighted when little Ifoumniy Roberts, lOW or other, was responsible for making the burly Charlie Roberts do an aoroabtic feat. Soon a.fterwa.rds half time arrived with a soore of one goal each. On the restart, it could bo easily seen that the visitors meant business, and straightway they rushed the ball to tho other end, only to be sent to the right a.bout by Meirion Jones. Again they continued the onslaught, and Marsh met the ball, ajnd sent in a lightning drive, which was well put out of the way by Hughes. Llandudno continued to press, and the spectators now became rather excited, and continually urged their pets on, but they could iwt get av. ay. About a foot outside the penalty area one of tho Quarrymen handled the ball. Lunt took the free kick, and just scratched the crcGsba.r From the goal-kick the visitors again and again pressed, but they could not for the life of thom penetrate the sound defence of the home backs. Pearson, from the extreme left, puti in a splendid centre, but Goorgie Davies made but a. poor attempt at converting it. Tho I? estiniog right wing now bucked up, and when in the miadlo of a nea-t passing ga-mo, Lunt spoilt their efforts by handling the ball.' When m the act of kicking, Charlie Robert, was fouled, and the resulting free kiok gave Grif- fiths an opportunity of showing his powers. Ho sprrntod well around two men, but on meeting the third ho was fouled, the free lack giving hum nor his side any advantage. At this junc- ture, Jacob had- all his work cut out in chcok- ing tho left wing, but Tommy Roberts gained a pomt on him, and with a ground shot grazed too outside of the post. The goal-kick was well placed to Johnnio Williams, who attempted a run "on his own." He was making excellent headway, a.nd had just got past the back when his oa.reer was checked. A claim for a free kick was made but the referee, who happened to be in a;n awkward position, did not sustain the claim, ami the gtuno proceeded. The doings oi Davo Griffiths were watched by Jim Lloyd, but the Llandudno man w.as much more fleet on toot, and easily got past lJoyd. Griffiths, from an awkward spot, put in a beautiful shot, which was fumbled by liughce, and to save his charge m? "lsa*'jJ"er» ho had to place behind. inree oorncrs running were awardjed tho visi- tors, but none of them proved fruitful. The crowd now beca.me excited, and at times the decisions od the referee were hooted, but suffice it to say the- Referee Jones gave excellent de- cisions throughout, and the action of those lin- ing the ropes was most uncalled for. The game was now of an exciting character, and strenu- ous efforts were made by both teanis to gain the I,xW. Al a result of some neat work by the sea- siders, Brookes Evans passed the ball forward, and R. Parry cooly slipped between the backs' and made no mistake in netting the ball. The Quarrymen became exceedingly excited, and were subject to all kinds of infringement of the rules Dick Roberta was giving all his atten- tion to Johnnie Wiliiams, who was clavinc a strong game. 6 LLANDUDNO LINESMAN INSULTED. At this point the Llandudno linesman ap- poared to be considerably molested by a num- ber of yc-utns on the line, and the game had to be stopped whilst the referee delivered the usual caution. The Llandudno boys were shoot- mg for all they were worth to gain a decisive lead, but they were met with a stubborn de- fence m Meirion and Rowlands. The former of the two seeing that it was critical for his sice played in the forward line, and the home- sters resorted to the one back gamo, with the result that Brookes Evans was penalised every time for being offside. An easy chance to score was missed by Tommy Roberts, who had but the custodian to beat, but his shot went, virds of tho mark. The game, as it drew to a cl< £ ? became rathe- rough, but the men were well handilod by the referee. Fouls were frequent a molee in front of the Festiniog goal gave the visitors a further leaxl in the lust minute R. Parry being responsible for a very tricky goaJ from a pass again by Brookes Evans Final result: Llandudno, 3; Festiniog 1. A REGRETTABLE INCIDENT. At the close of the game a. regrettable in- cident took place. The referee was hooted by a orowd of young roughs, who followed him through the streets. Mr Jones inamediately in- structed the secretary of the Festiniog Club to atoip this, when, it is reported, he remarked that they had nothing to do with the referee after he left the fiold. The crowd--miad I was sorry to find among them a number of middle- aged men—continued to miolest the reforee nrac ticailly the whole of the way to the railway Htation, and the police were requisitioned to koop them baok. By the sensible spectators on the field, and of those. there was a large majority, the decisions of the referee were considered to be most fair, and I—a supporter of neither ioorn- considered that it was impossible to give bet- ter decisions than wore given on Saturday However, the Quarrymerc's committee will un- doubtedly hear more of this before long.

FRIENDLY MATCHES. LLANDUDNO AMATEURS RESERVES v. COLWYN BAY VICS. These teams met on the Council Fields, Llan^ dud no, on Saturday, both sides being woll re- presented. In the first half, the home team were the superior, and managed to notch three goals. The visitors wore given several splendid openings, of which thoy failed to take advan- tage, their shooting being wretched. Half- time arrived with the soores Llandudno 3, Colwyn Bay 0. Restarting, the homesters quickly asserted themselves and rail up their score to five, To this the Bayites could only reply once, this coming from a penalty. It was only the sound play of the Vies', defence that saved further disaster, and the final blow of the whistle found the game standing at Lklndudno Amateurs 5, Colwyn Bay Vice. 1.
LLANRWST v. NORMAL COLLEGE. THE STUDENTS DEFEATED. In preparation for the final tie of the North Wales Junior Cup, the committee of the Llan- rwet Football Club have wisely decided a num- ber of stiff friendly matchcs for the team. The first of those was a fixture with the Normal Col- lege, Bangor, on Gwydr Park, Llanrwst, on Saturday, when a keenly contested gamo was played in beautiful weather. ReTeree Albert Hughes had cliarge of the teams. The game opened in favour of the Roosters, who were shortly awarded a free kick, which was oxocllently placed by Dei 'iluinas, and Chis- holin rushed up and immediately scored the first gcal. Again were the homo lot awarded a tree kick, and W. Owen drove in with terrific force. The custodian effected a brilliant save at the expense of a corner, tho kick for which was en- trusted to A. Richards. This young player put the ball nicely to Gren. toe, who had exceedingly hard lines in not finding tho mark. The visitors now began to show up, and a neat piece of work was manipulated by the front rank, capably assisted by their half line. Tho left half concluded the movement with a ra.ttling shot, which literally bent the crcos-bar. The sphere was kept well on the move by both teams, and end to end play ensued for some-time. The Roosters were up to this the better team, a.nd Dei Thomas was still in his usual form, making several attempts at goal with long shots. Fin- chett was severely tested with a tremendous drive by the visiting inside left, but he came out with flying colours, and kept his goal intact, al- though at the expense of a cornor. Soon after- wards, half-time was called with the homesters leading by a goal to nil. Tho second moiety of the game was keenly contested, and the Roosters again were slightly the better set of men. Norman Jones sent in a. beautiful centre, which landed on the toe of Chieholm. who had very little difficulty in add- ing number two. As soon as the sphere was in motion again, the home quintette took posses- sion, and again rushed for their object, Hum- phrey Roberts being responsible for a shot which deserved a better fate, but which was very smart- ly dealt with by the custodian. When in a nice position, Norman Jones was given off-side, and the resulting free kick let in the city men, who kept up a few minutes' pressure, but the homo defence was unpenetratable, and the visiting front line appeared to be quite disheartened when they were continually pent to the right about. The Roosters again made headway, and Norman Jones nearly added another point, from a neat pass by A. Richards. From this to the end, Llan- rwst continually pressed, the most prominent for- wards being Humphrey Roberts and Norman Jones. Really, the five men played up well. The game concluded with the pcore standing at two goals to nil in favour of Llanrwst.
FRIARS SCHOOL v. RYDAL MCUNT (COLWYN BAY). HANDSOME VICTORY FOR FIUARS SCHOOL. (By a "Visitor."). Tho above inter-school game took place on Saturday, on Friars ground. This was the fourth meeting of these schools this season, the first three ending in wins for tho Colwyn Bay School, and Friars were bent on giving their rivals a stubborn fight, if not a defeat. Under the control of tiefeioe Lloyd-Williams, Bangor, the teams lined out in the following order. Friars School: O. Williams, goal; R. G. vVat- son and Ivor Williams (capt.), backs; H. Lloyd- Wil liams, F. Davies, and L. Owen, half-backs; H. Land, S. W. Jones, T. Thomas, T. J. Griffith, and H. Walker, forwards. Rydal Mount: O. Cook, goal; R. S. Darling- ton and A. Simpson, backs; W. H. Rayne, L. II. James (capt.), and N. Johnson, half-backs; C. Wils-on, H. Deakin, Prico Jones, L. K. Lan- caster, and J. Wood, forwards. Tho visitors won tho toss, and Thomas set the ball in motion for Friars. The first few minutes of the game were in favour of Friars, but they could not score, as the Rydal defence was excep- tionally strong. The visitors paid a visit to Friars end, but Williams and Walson were not to be beaten. A melee in the Rydal goal re- suited in Simmon handling tho ball inside the dreaded area, and from the resultant penalty Walkor mado ho mistake, this success coming 1 after seventeen minutes' play. From the centre, Friars again became aggressive, and forced a fruitless corner. At the other end Rydal looked like equalising, when Ivor Williams headed the ball out from almost under the bar. A fine movement by the Friars forwards left T. J. Griffiths to score the second goal, Cook having no chance to save. For the remainder of this half, give and take was tho order of-the play, but the homesters were by far the most danger- ous players when near goal. At half-time the score stoodFriars School, two goals; Rydal Mount, nil. Rydal re-started. Thomas captured the ball and passed to Griffiths. The little inside left made tracks for goal, and beautifully placing the ball to Walker, the latter, from almost the cor- ner flag, sent in an accurate centre, which S. Wr. Jones met, and goal number three was recorded by Friars within one minute after the re-start.' The Rydal tea.m now "bucked" up, but could not penetrate the fine defence opposed to them. Watson gave away a penalty through handling, but the Rydal centre half sent the ball wide of the post. From now to the end, the game was mostly in favour of Friars, but they did not add to their score. Griffiths had hard" lirea with a nice header, the ball grazing the cross-bar. The game ended in a well-deserved victory for Friars School by three goals to nil.
BEAUMAR3S v. BANGOR POST OFFICE. At Beaumaris, on Saturday. The visitors who were short of II. T. Evans, gave the honie^ sters a capital game. The play was evenly con- tested all through, "H-eaumaris eventually winning by three goals to two.
WALES'S SURPRISING FOOTBALL VICTORY. For the third year in succession Wales beat Scotland at Association football, the gamo at Wrexham yesterday ending in their favour by one gtial to none. 1n many ways the engagement proved disap- pointing, and the result was quite contrary to the run oi the play, which went largely in favour of Scotland. Almost irom uio very start they demonstrated a cicar superiority. In aii, oany attack by W aits, Jhorgan-vwen, from a centre by lUercdun, had a hue cnauoe, but Thompson got his toot. to the ball, and it was in aitempxmg this shot that the Corinthian lamed himself. Except Uiat Meredith and Lot Jones occasion- ally got down, the play settled almost entirely in tho Weish half, but try as they would tho Scottish lorwards could not beat a by no means sure defence, in which Blew worked hard, but kicked rather poorly, and Rooee did great feats in goaL Alter change of ends Morg"an Owen partici- pated in one combined movement on the right Wj<iig, from which a corner resulted, and a scram- ble m front of goal ensued. From another corner Meredith headed in to McBride. These Welsh attacks oould not be sustained, and Young several times tried desperately hard to break through. Following a free kick, well played, Meredith put in one of the few really good shots of the match, but the ball went straight to Mc- Bride, who was presently changed by Morgan- Owen, Moredzth subsequently heading- in without effect. Playing their best late in the game the Scots pressed almost continually. Liyingstone shot too high and Smith hoaided just over. The former made a miserable shot when well placed from a. pass by Young. Thanks to Meredith, Wales forced the play, and in taking a centre from the outside right McBride fell, but Lot Jones, with an open goal, shot, wide, the ball going softly towards the corner flag. Only two minutes remained for play when Meredith, closing1 in, paesed across to Gordon Jones, who, quite unmarked, made some ground before giving the ball to Morris, whose shot went through out of McBride's reach, a.nd so won the game for Wales. There were over 8000 srpectators, 7715 paying for admission, and the receipts amounted to E369 10s without tickets. WALES T. ENGLAND. After the ma;tch the Welsh Council selected the following eleven to oppose England, at Fulham, ocn March 18th:-L. R. Roose (Stoke); H. Blew (Wrexham), C. Morris (Derby County); G. Lathom (Liverpool), Mr Morgan-Owen (Cor- inthians), E. Hughes (Tottenham Hotspur); W. Meredith (Manchester United), Lot Jones (Man- chester City), A. W. Green (Notts Forest), R. Evans (Aston Villa), and A. G. Morris (Notts Forest).
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.

NOTES AND COMMENTS, (By "Criticus.") BANGOR AND DISTRICT. The fourth inter-school game between Friars School, Bangor and Rydal Mount, Colwyn Bay, was played at Friars, on Sa.turday, when a capi- tal. game was witnessed by a good number of spectators. The game was keenly fought by both teams, and sQvernl fine incidents wore witnessed. The first half saw Friars scoring two goals, whilst the Rydal boys failed to score. '>I( ;to The second half opened in a sensational man- ner, a fine piece of forward play by the Friars forwards resulting in another goal being scored within a minute of the re-start. Rydal failed to redueo the lead from a penalty. Taking the game all through, Friars deserved their win by three clear goals, as they were by far the superior side. » O. Wiliiams, in the Friars goal, was very safe. Tho bocks, Watson and Ivor Williams, are a. capital pair. The intermediate line came out of the ordeal with flying colours, the trio playing a hard and neat game. The forwards combine nicely and shoot well. Land, in the first half, several times sprinting down the right, and cen- tring well. S. W. Jones played a hard ga.me. Thomas, in the centre, is a much improved player, and kept his wings going in capital style. T. J. Griffiths, the inside left, is a very tricky forward, arid a good shot, and of a good line of forwards he must, be given the palm. Walker, on the outsido left, played a. very efficient game. For Rydal, Cook. in goal, stopped some good shots, and could in no way be blamed for the defeat. The backs were very strong, and saved the situation on several occasions. The middle line played a good game, but the home forwards proved more than once too tricky for them. The forwards are a fine sot, and their combination was a treat to witness. 4s ê At last the Reserves have won a League match, and in no uncertain f^i-hion. And score docs no more than fai represent the play. The visitors were outclassed in every department from goal to centro, and at times the home forwards appeared to be simply toy- ing with the opposing defence. » < For the visitors Hallwood in goal gave a very feebio show, and of the backs O. E. Williams was perhaps the better. At half Wellings a.nd Rowlands plaved a gwod game. Of tho front rank Moss Jones and McCann were the pick the former being very fast, while MoCann shoots as as ever. < For the homeetefrfl, Ted Owen in goal was as firm as a rook. Alf. Thomas was the best of a good pair of backs. W Jones (Hiraol)' made a welcome reappearance into tho half ba.ck lino, and notwithstanding his enforced a.hcenco he played a better game than either Parry or Griffith. Parry was very disappointing, and Boomed to forget t' at he was a half back and not a forward. Tlime a.fter time he kept on dribbling and looking for opportunities to.soore himself, while his forwards stood idle. T. A. Griffith, too, did not shine a.8 ho u5ualJy does. Of the forwards Oliver Griffith in centre struok me as having improved wonderfully, and he put more go and dash into his play than I have over seen him dot Burns and Evans on the right were very clover and tricky, while Joe Tnomafl and Hughie Owen, who seem to bo ablo to play in every forward position, made a very good show on the left. Next Saturday, the Reserves play Holyhed at Carnarvon in the semi-final of the North Wales Amateur Cup, a.nd although Holyhead have a splendid team this season they will have anything but a walk over. Fortunately, Bangor has no Combination matoh t"- t day so that, if necessary, the amateurs ui tho senior team can be railed upon. It is to be hoped that tihoro will be a gocd must-or of Bangoriana a.t Carnarvon to encourage their team. 11 CARNARVON. The paoe in the game between the rival casfc.es at Carnarvon on Saturday was a. cracker all tinough; in fact it was voted the best maidh seen on the Oval for many seasons past, was no slackness or dilatory tactics both sides b.Mn.g imbued with a desire to win with the result that some oxhilurating foot- work was witnessed. # Bohh teams were at full strength, Conway having three Bangor players in their ranks, and Carnarvon again played 'Tom Roberts. In fine style the homesters opened the proceedings, but they were quickly put an the defensive, and Atherton registered on obviously offside goal for Conway. In less than a minute afterwards the Carnarvon custodian had to fist out. Too ball travelled rapidly from end to end, C4anway getting in the majority of the goad shots. Gradually, however, tho homo lot gcit into their stride, and boro down upon the Conway goal in a promising manner. Hhc movement, however, came to naught. Conway wero the first to score, and then Horn Roberts equalised for Carnarvon. When the second haJf opened I imagined that tho lorwards wore simply going to swamp the OUIil- wa.y defenders, who managed to stand firm. Then Tom Roberts spoilt several movements by getting offside. Encouraged by the crowd, tho iiomesters set to work to obtaan the lead, and Hugh Roberts, taking full advantago of a weak clearance by the Conway custodian scored. Jlho same playor, in a few minutes, put on the third. After this, Conway showed exc-cod- lngiy smart tactics, a.nd Parry drove in what I regrdod as the best shot of the match a de- ceiving grounder, which curled into the goal, qf'von onstodiaii saving in tho nick of wn oa]y for*»d a cornor off Tre- ^ri. th<5 kick so admirably thro- rh r ry the ball At this stage it looked as though Conway were going to win, but another indifferent clearance by their custodian enabled Walter Jones to soore. At tho other end no one ap- peared more surprised than the Carnarvon cus- todia.n when II. J. Davies soared the third goal for Conway, who perceiving there was a vestige of nope, played for all they were worth and during the excitement what might have resulted in an ugly incident occurred • « Whilst J. Jones, tho home outside left fiycr was careering up tho wing, Hwfa Williams coJidod with him, and tiho young Carnarvon player was slightly injured. The crowd in- staritly enorccujiiod on tho field, and to all ap- pearanoes Hwfa was in for a rough time of it, but tho officials interfered, and the gamo was proceeded with. To any careful watcher of tho gamo it was obvious tha.t tho whole affair was an accident. a as- -own Of the two toams, Conway perhaps, played with most polish, but Carnarvon fully deserved thoir victory, and had not Tom Roberts made a hash of so many grand opportunities in fronit of goal, it would havo been much more pro- nounced. The Carnarvon custodian proved ua- usually vigilant, and both full backs were in grand form, playing with rare dash. The pick of tho halves was Palmer, who was always in th.o thick of the fray, and the Conway right wing were absolutely powerless against huv. His ooUeagucs likewise did well. T,Dm Roberts excepted, the forwards played their beat game this season. Hughie Roberta, who soored most of the goals, was always on the spot, and little J. Jones played a uspÆui game. A similar remark apnlies to Walter Jones and R. 11. Roberts, but Tom Roberts had apparently loft his shooting boots at homo. At any rate, his ide of the location of tho goai was a hazy cine. 3 « » It is no exaggeration to say that had Conway a capiablo custodian, Carnarvon would never ha.o scored two out of tho four goals credited to them. Llow. Parry a.ppoar0d afraid of touohi/ng- tho bail witil his hands on Saturday. On two distinct occasions Tom Roberts sent weakly in, but instead of seizing the ball with ,-S hancn and making a decent clearance ho shot tno ball with infantlike frailtv right to the toes of R. II. Rciberta, who, of ooursa, promptly slammed it into the net. Again Owen Eliis was by no means safe, his taolding leaving rnuoh to be desired. Hwfa played his usual bustling game, and worked hard, ospeoiaUy in the second half. In the half line, Bob Owen was the embodiment of energy, and he played tho ball as much with his hoad as with his feot. Shorn. Jones was a^lso vory active, and "Saunders," who, during tno second half went forward, got through a lot of quiet but useful work. fljhero wore no stars in the front line, but tnev ail played a steady game, and now and a.a, In wo had glimpses of combination. Stone, wno has a good idea of goal, would be well advised never to pass back except in oases of absolute necessity. His colleague, Joe WTil- harris, was not quite up to his usual form, but H. J. Davies i>vays threatened danger when near tho Carnarvon citadel. The right wing, as I have previously stated, wero utterly help- less agamat Palmer. COLWYN BAY. Ban.gor 7, Colwyn Bay 1. What can one make of suoh a result? Surely tho" Redo" have fallen upon bad times, to be beaten by suoh a score. Earlier in the season they were viC"0t; I "us by 5 goals to 1. But it is only what occurs year after year at this time of the sea- son. So far as Colwyn Bay was concerned the ga.me was pitiful to watch. Hallwood in goal cannot be blamed, for ho had not the usuiai sterling defence in front of him. Campbell was far from being safe, but 0. & Williams was in a fairly good mood. "Nfiddy" also had an oft day, a.nd Rowlands found to4 much in Burns and Evans, who are the Com- bination right wing. The only one of the He? to do himself justice was Wollings, the old war. horse. The forwards have never given a more mi^erahlo -'show." As a line they wer-j wretched, but McCann and W. T. Jones worked well. Of the others the least said the better. (Continued on 9tit page).
