DENBIGH TOWN v. LLANRWST. "ROOSTERS" BEATEN BY A GOAL. A WELL-FOUGHT GAME. (By "Qilcdfryn."). The above teamc. met in a League fixture, on Saturday, at the Graig-road field, in fine weather, a.nd before a fair "gate. The ptart was de- layed for about fifty .minutes owing to late arrival of the "Roc&lers." Loud Cheers greeted tho teams when they lined Tip for the fray. Tihere was one change in the Denbigh eleven—T. A. Davies taking the place of D. W. Jones, who had not sufficiently recovered from the injury he received at Holyhead, the preyioss Satur- day. Fuichett, tho clever custodian, was a notablo absentee from the visiting team. The Llanrwfct captain was lucky over the spin- ning of the coin, and placed his men with a alight breeze at their backs. From tho contre the home forwards made head- way for the Llanrwst goal, but after some ex- citing piay the ball was safely cdeared. A pretty move by the visiting left wing ended in the home custodian saving a warm shot from Chisholm. The "Roosters" continued to press, and a foul against Denbigh did not improve their position, Sam Griffiths again being cailed upon to clear which he did in fine style. A good run by the Denbigh forwards was marred when Tommy Davies was ruled offside, and play was again removed to the homesters' quarters. Haynes and R. T. Williams failed to check the nipp t f-orward? and things looke4 b-ad Llgiirwr onbigh, but Luth vans cleared in magni- ficent fashion. Denbigh, then, moved up the field in excellent stylo. The "Roosters' halves were unable to cope with the combined move- ments of the forwards, and shot after shot was directed towards the Llanrwst citadel, but the custodian brought off many splendid saves, especially a. fine shot by Dick Morris Evans, when he appeared to have been hopelessly beaten. Trevor, at this period, was playing a capital game at back, and the veteran was loud- Jy cheered by the onlookers for some smart clearances. A run on the Llanrwst left was neatly checked by the vigilant Gwilym Williams, who placed his wing men in possession, and the spectators were treated to a splendid run, and oentre by R. Morris Evans. T. A. Davies met the ball, and with no one to beat but the cus- todian, shot too high, thus missing an easy open- in.g. The "Roosters" now moved down the field in fine order, but good work by Edgar put a timely check to their movements. Effective play by Tonuny Davies and Randall ended in the latter grazing the croesbar with a rasping shot. The combination of the home forwards at this period was very good, but splendid oppor- tunities of scoring were loet by them through erratio shooting. Luth Evans essayed a goal with a beauty, but the Llanrwst warden WélIJ equal to the occasion, and again saved cleverly. For come time afterwards midfield play was the order; then the "Roosters" put on pressure, and some good work was done by Jones on the extreme right. One of his centres was well met by Arcthie Carter, who all but scored, the leather banging against the crossbar and rebounding into play. This was indeed hard lineB for the visitors, who repeatedly hovered around the home gKial in a dangerous manner. However, sound, defensLvo work by Haynes, R. T. Williams, and Sam Griffiths prevented ali their efforts to score. The attack was then taken up by Denbigh, who forced several corners, but the skilful defensive taotics of the Llanrwst backs were too good for the home forwards. Nevertheless, Denbigh cer- tainly would have scored on two or three occa- sions had the forwards been in anything like shooting form, especially the inside trio, who Beemed to try and run the ball through rather than kick it in. The Llanrwst forwards, on the otiher hand, whenever an opportunity presented itself, shot for all they wero worth. Play con- tinued very fast and exciting, both teams put- ting in all they knew in trying to soore. The centres of Dick Morris Evans were always well met, but the majority of them were sent over the crossbar by the home pivot. Half-time scores: Denbigh, nil; Llanrwst, nil. I The play in the first half had evidently pleiased the spectators, who greeted the teams with gusto when play was resumed. Denbigh were the first to attack, but the visiting backs sent the leather well the field. Socme smart ta4,-kling by the ,UEalves again carrie,-i play to the Uanrwrt hom quarters, where sonno exciting passages were wit- nessed. After some midfield play, Dick Morris Evans gained possession of tho ball, and leav- in.g the opposing half and full back hopelessly in the rear, centred strongly. The leather was met by Randall, who sent in a high dropping shot. The custodian partly cleared, but Tommy Davies, who was lying near, dashed up and scored, tho custodian having no earthly chance of saving. Loud cheering marked this success. Llanrwst rallied in spirited fashion, and for about ten minutes they were "all over" the home- sters. Eventually, however, the "Bow-wows" again settled down to their game, and gave the visiting defenders a very hot time. Edgar fouled Carter just outside the penalty area, and from the free kick, which ensued, tho "Roosters" near- ly scored, the ball missing the bar by about an inch. Both teams tried hard to put on a point, but the bcanectem held the upper hand. When Mr Jones, of Holywell, gave the signal for the cessation of hostilities tho score was:— Denbigh, one goal; Llanrwet, nil.
