LLANDUDNO AMATEURS v. CREWE BOILER WORKS. I- AMATEUliS' EASY WIN. I Llandudno Amateurs 4 goals Crewe Boiler Works 1 goal. I Llandudno Amateurs entertained Crewe Boiler Works football club on Saturday afternoon, when it was ap- parent that the 8--0 lesson taught them at Colwvn Bay had been taken to heart (and feet). There was a good gate. Llandudno won the toss, and put the visitors to face the sun. The locals at once proved aggressive, and the game was not very old before their efforts were re- warded, a nicely worked movement ending in J. Llew- welyn Jones beating the visiting custodian with a fine shot. Following up their advantage the Amateurs resumed the offensive, and again the forwards, who were in a happy mciod, got within range, and W. A. Williams dirt the needful. After this, the visitors made some headway, and the home defence were put to the test. In attempting to clear a shot, the home custodian, Sykes, was penalized, Crewe's outside left was en- trusted with the shot, but he only struck the upright., and the ball was cleared. Half-time, Llandudn7) Amateurs 2, Crewe Boiler Works 0. In the second half, the homesters were still the more agressive. Their forwards worked nicely together, and as the result of a combined movement, D. Davies added a third goal to the score. The viCors retalia- ted, and this time their efforts met with success for after a bully in front of the Dame goal, their inside left lifted the ball over Sykes' head, and scored. They failed, however, to improve upon their score, and D. Davies added one more before the whistle blew, lead- ing the home team victors by four goals to one. Final result, Llandudno 4, Crewe 1.

BANGOR v. CREWE ALEXANDRA RESERVE. CITIZENS MAKE AN INAUSPICIOUS START. (By "Recorder."). Crewe Alexandra Reserve 6 goals. Ban,or Nil. In weather more suggestive of cricket than football, the Bangor Combination team opened their season on Saturday, the visitors being Crewe Alexandra Reserve, who, on the previous Saturday, defeated Connah's Quay. A fairly large :c.J crowd turned out to witness the game. There were no new players in the home ranks with the exception of McLachlan, the cricket professional, who figured between the Sticks. The teams were:- Bangor:—McLachlan; J. Arridge and Hwfa Williams; W. Jones, Alf. Thomas, and T. A. Griffith; R. H. Roberts, Bradshaw, Walter Jones, H. Davies, and Oliver. Crewe Alexandra Reserve :—Churchill; Lyons and Dcdd Gatlev, Hawkins, and Da vies Har- vey, Dixon, Smith, Brindley, and Ralphes. Referee: Mr Browne Jones, Rhyl. The visitors winning the toss, put the home lot to face a rather brilliant sun, which, at times, had a bewildering effect on them. The opening exchanges were confined to midfield, and of the two teams Bangor showed up best.- Walter Jones secured possession, and transferred to R. H. Robe rts, his club colleague, who was cap- sized by Davies, and Lyons cleared. On the other side, Hughie Davies had a try after Oliver had been floored, but his effort went a trifle wide. The popular impression at this stage of the game was that the home lot were going to romp round the Crewe men, but gradually a change came over the proceedings. The visitors in- dulged in the long passing game, to which the homesters could not adapt themselves, and whilst the full backs were paying attention to the wing men one of them swung- the ball across to the unguarded centre forward, Smith, who slammed the ball into the corner of the net. This goal was as unexpected as it was brilliant. In a few minutes the long passing tactics of the visitors brought them close to the home goal, Jack Arridge chipping in just at the right mo- ment. At last, the Bangor left wing got going, and as usual Oliver worked himself to the cor- ner post before shooting, and one of the op- posing full backs charged his shot down. Hughie Davies did manage to test Churchill, but he was quite safe. In midfield the Bangor men did some good things, but before goal they were painfully slow, whilst their opponents were al- ways dangerous when before McLachlan. Brad- shaw made a dash on his own, and he parted to R. H. Roberts, who had a tussle with Davies, and the Crewe man came off top. WILD KICKING BY BANGOR. Hereabouts tha home team played wildly, snooting the ball anywhere but the right place m marked contrast to the accurate work of their opponents, who, through Dixon and Ralphes, scored two further goals before the interval, when the score stood:- Crewe, 3; Bangor, nil. Bangor started well on resumption, R. H. Ro- berts being just a second too late before goal. After this incident, the Crewe forwards had practically their own way, and Dixon put on the fourth. A minute afterwards the same player found himself in front of McLachlan, and -he crashed the Dall against the lower part of the crossbar, and fortunately for Bangor it rebound- ed into play. Arridge tried his luck from a free kick, and he all but scored. As the game pro- gressed, Bangor's play deteriorated, the forwards in particular playing wretchedly, and continual "Oh's" went up as they made mistakes. They tried the short passing game, but the Crewe half backs were continually nipping and spoiling all the movements. Considering the weather, the pace throughout was remarkably fast. Final result:—Crewe Alexandra Reserve, 6; Bangor, nil.

HOLYHEAD SWIFTS v. BANGOR RESERVE. THE CITY MEN CAPTURE TWO POINTS. (By "Critic"). B&ragor Reserves j Holyihoa<l Swifts 2 The visit of Bangor's team is always looked forward to with groat interest at Holyhead, and it was confidently hoped that the locals would make amends for their defeat on Saturday at 0 Carnarvon by scouring the maximum points on this occasion. Several chajigos were made with this object in view. The teams lined up as under.- Holyhead: Collier; W. Space and W. H. Parry; W. Taylor, W. T. Jones and R. Ellis; R. C. Jones, R. Owon, J. Rowlands, Louis Jones and J. Jones. Bangor: H. R. Williams; Ireland and D. J. Thomas; W. Parry, Aaron Jones and H. J. Da- vies; H. Owen, W. E. Jones, Telford, Edgar LI. Jonea and W. H. Jones. Mr Slater (Llandudno) had charge of the game. Thero was a good crowd lining the ropes when tlho rival captains tossed up, and' Taylor being unsuccessful the locals were put to faoc a bright sun. Johnny Rowlands set tho ball rolling, and following the preliminary exchanges the pivot, when in a good position, was given offside. Tho visiting forwards were making tracks fox Collier when Parry sent them to the right about. R. C. Jones secured t.he leather, and sent in a good shot, which was sà voq at the expense of a corner, tha resulting kick being well placed and equally- well cleared. Johnny Jones essayed a ru.n, but was smartly checked by H. J. Davies, who passed to \V. II. Jcnes, that plaver's centre be- ing intercepted by Dick Ellis' 'head, tho ball going to Johnny Rowlands. Johnny let fly, his shot going wide. R. C. Jcincs receiving the ball, put in a lovely centre, but Dick Ellis, in his anxiety to open the scoring, .missed his kick when in a good position. From a throw in, R. C. ran round Parry, but was declared offside, W. II. Jones being simi- larly penalised immediately after. Ireland re- turned a good attempt on the part of Johnny Rowlands. After some exchanges in midfield the ball came to Jclhnny Rowlands, who passed it on to Lcuis Jo.rbes, tho latter sending it to Johnny Jones, who centred beautifully. A bully took place in tho Bar- or goal, and Louis Jones getting the ball made no mistake with a fine shot, after about ton minutes' play. Tho visitors now made determined efforts to draw level, and Ireland tried his luck with a shot from over the naif-way line, tho bill going be- hind. Some pretty play was now witnessed on the visitors' left, II. Jrn,-s and Edgar com- bining well, but Space came to the rescue v.ith a g'ood clearance. Bangor were pressing hard. and W. E. Jones locked like getting through, but Party clearcd well. W. T. Jones was putting in a lot of hard work, and led his for- wards judiciously, but ti.cy could not got going. Johnny Jcnes, after a nice run, sent the bail to Louis Jones, but the latter just failed to reach it. Ju.imny Rowlands overran the ball, H. R. Williams leaving his charge in order to clear. Shortly afterwaids the garna was stopped owing T1ford k°ing h-ui t, but he was able to resume directi). Tho visitors again rnade a raid on the home gioul, H. Owen's final effort crashing against the crcssbar and rebounding into play, D. Ellis eventually clearing. H. Owen centred well, and Parry missing his kick matters looked black for the homesters, but Collier just man- eja -.d to tn-row away at the expense of a corner, which was cleared by Dick Ellis, who headed away. R. C. Jones and Louis were going well, when tho latter was robbed by H. J. Davies, Taylor cleverly intercepting the latter's pass to II. Owen. Immediately after Louis Jones sent in a gocd shot, which went a trifle wide. W. T. checked a promising run by the visitors, and Louis transferred tile si here to JoJmny Row- lands, but tile latter spoiled a gocd chance, Tel- ford being fouled. The locals again moved up 'I the field. Johnny Jones finishing' up a tricky bit of plav by parting with the ball to Louis Jones, the latter losing it through diily-dailVing, a good chance thus being lost. Yet another attack was made on the visitors' citadel, Johnny Rowlands, from, a pa s by R. C. Jonas, heading .over. ( Bangor went away with a characteristic rush, and Space, missing his kick, let in Telford, who see red THE EQUALISING GOAL with a good snot. Tuy gome natt been a fast one jiiu.arto, but it was apparent that the sun was bot.iiertng the locals not a little. Upon re- suming, ilug.jio Owen initiated another raid on Coiiier, ana Space nearly let his side down, but Collier saved trie situation by running out and kiciki.ng away a good attempt by W. H. Jones. H. Owen and \v. E. Jones were conspicuous for some pretty combined play, but Tayior cleared vv-jli, Lie ball going to Dick Ellis, wlio sent in a terrific shot, winch Williams did well to save, a corner resulting, whidii came to naught. Louis Jones was going strongly when Ireland robbed him, and sent We ball well up the field. Ths same player immediately after- wards allowed a good pas., by J. Rowlands to go astray. The venue now ouanged, and n. Owen, after a nice run, centred well, the ball goiii»> behind, there being no one at hand to profit by it, the same player shooting over the next imiiiute. W. H. Jones now got away Oin the left, his final effort being futile. From a pass by Johnny Rowlands, R. C. Jones shot over. R. Owen was making tracks for the visitors' goal, when he was badly fouled, a.nd from the resulting free kick Johnny Rowlands missed what should have been a. certain goal. Tho visitors were new' having the better of the game, and brought great pressure to bear upon the home defence. Responding to the cries cif tueir supporters the homesters strove hard to increase their score, but "Bang'or re- turned to the aitack, Taylor cleverly robbm0* W. E. Jones. From a throw in Louis Jone3 rand own the field, and passed to Johnny Jo.ncS, but the ball eventually- went behind. Keeping up the attack, Johnrn- Jones put in a good centre, the ball going >0 R. C. Jones, who shot hard into W illiams' hands, the latter clearing his charge with ease. During a further attack on the visitors' goal. R. C. Jones sent in a good shot, which resulted in a. bully in the goalmouth, the ball eventually beincr cleared. }I. R. Wil- Jiai/'is was hurt i.n the melee, but he was :) blc to resume in a minuto or two. The homesters now made for the visiting 2oal, Dick Ellis receiving from Louis Jones, only. to shoot behind. A nice bit cf passing between R. C. Jones, J. Rowlands and Johnny Jones looked promising but the ball went into touch. R. C. Jones was going- well when he was checked by Thoniaq, a throw in resulting, from which Taylor just missed wit:h a god siiot. W. IT. Jones went off on the left, and pawing to Edgar Jones, the latter centred, but Telford's effort went wide. Shortly after, the whistle sounded fc.r half-time, with Bangor pressing, and the score reading-•— HOLYHEAD 1, BANGOR 1. The teai.ns soon got to work ag'ain, and hopes were entertained tnat tiie Swifts would add to their score now that they were pbuying with the sun at tneir backs. Edgar Jones was making for Collier, when he was robbed by Dick Ellis, that player parting wit.h the ball to Robert Owe.ii, the latter shooting feebly behind. A nice combined movement by the three inside men of the Swifts spelt danger to Bangor, the final attempt by Louis Jones being punted away by Ireland, who was playing a cool game. The homesters were now. pressing continually, but their efforts to score were disappointing. Johnny Rowlands, when in a good position, was given offside. Ireland cleared his lines well from an attack on the home right, but the ball went to Robert Owen. who shot straight into Williams' hands, and he kicked safely away. Edgar Jones pounced on the ball, but tho -histle went for offside. Returning to the at- tack. Dick Ellis gave the ball to Johnny Jones, the latter transferring to Louis Jones, who shot hard and true, but the ball cannoned back off Ireland, who was lucky to have been in the way, Thomas kicking into touch. Williams saved a good shot from the foot of Louis Jones, and ho had to exert himself to clear a fine attempt by R. C. Jones the next minute. The Swifts were having mudli the better off the gamo at this stage, but they could not penetrate the visiting defence, this being due, to a great extent, to the lack of method and cohesion among the front rank. Helping up the pressure, Dick Ellis gave to J. Rowlands, the latter sending in a rasping shot, which MISSED BY INCHES. Dick Ellis now initiated a determined onslaught on the Bangor goal, and J. Rowlands was grassed when appearing to bo getting through. Not to be denied, they returned again, and Rowlands met a pass from R. C. Jones, and headed the sphere past Williams, thus Bearing <- .j J A SPLENDID GOAL. On resuming, the game livened up consider- ably, tho homesters imnxxiiately making tracks for Williams, but the: ball went behind. Bangor now iinada one of their rushes, Collier having to rush cut to clear from H. Owen, which he did safely. Johnny Jones was next seen to be careering down the field, finishing up with a rattling shet, which found Williams safe, loud cheers being given for both efforts. Not to be denied, Bangor returned to the attack, Space missing his kick let in Telford, who made a dash goal wards, but Taylor interfered. Hughie Owen took the kick, and sent in a. terrific shot from 25 yards' distance, the ball ENTERING THE NET at tha corner, Collier making no attempt to reach the sphere. The teams were thus again on oquai terms, both sides making desperate efforts to draw ahead. Responding to the loud cries of Play up, Holyhoad," the homo lot redoubled their efforts, Louis Jones se.uding in a capital ccntre. Ireland kicked clear, following whidh W. H..Jonos and Edgar indulged in a pretty combined movement, the ball eventually going mto touch. The wfhole ctf the visiting forwards next moved up in a line, but II. Owen spoilt a promising attack by kicking behind. The City men having1 more of the gamo new, but the homesters renewed their attack, Johnny Rowlands ending a g;).cd run by sending in a hot shot, whidh looked like doing the trick, but Williams (made a splendid clearance, loud cheers greeting the feat. Both ends were visit-ed in turn, but the home forwards had no method, and combination was at a discount, whereas Bangor's attack was always dangerous, tiho forwards indulging in somo nice bits of combined play, ably aided by the middle line. A corner to the locals was well placed by Tay- lor, but Thon;,as headed clear. Hughie Owen cleverly trioked W. T. Jones and Taylor, but his final effort was a feeble one. From a bully in the visiting goalmouth R. C. Jones headed in, but Williams cleared, the ball going to W. T. Jones, wno had a try, which went a trifle wide. AnothGr rash WM now made by Bangor, and the ball going to W. H. Jones, he made off for the home goal, and eluding one or two opponents, he s.hot hard for goaJ, but Collier got to the ball. He., however, fumbled with it, with t-he result that it Tolled SLOWLY INTO THE NET. tihus giving the vigors the lead for the first time. Re-starting, Johnny Jones made a gallant at- tempt to equalise, the ball hitting the post, and going* to R. C. Jones, who sent in a shot which jiut went outside. With about ten minutes to play the homesters tried hard to draw level, but their efforts met with no success, the visitors having quite as maich of the game at this stage. W. H. Jones got away on the left, crossing tho ball to H. Owen, who tried a not shot, which was well saved by Collier. Shortly afterwards, time was called, the homesters retiring beaten by THREE GOALS TO TWO.. It cannot be said that the game was one of the bost. The Swifts, especially the forwards, gave a very mediocre display, although they were unfortunate in not scoring on more than one ccoasicn near the close..Summing up, the home team had slightly the better of the g'J.mo as regards the attacks on the Bangor goal, but the visitors had imore method, were a better balanced team man for man, and well deserved their win. This revercs tho result of the cor- reciXMiding match last season, when Holyhead won by three goals to one.
DENBIGH v. LIAMRWST, HONOURS EASY. (By "Dolydd.") Denbigh „ Llaniwst 0 The Valley men and the Hill men met on Saturday on the ground of the latter. The Denbigh ground so closely resembles that of Gwydr that the "Roosters" immediately felt at home, and set about their work in a way that surprised even their supporters. As will be observed by the pereonael of the home team, it was the strongest combination Denbigh could put on the field, therefore, the "Roosters' are to be ctngratuluted in eharing the honours of the day with them. The wiatlier was ideal for the game, and this b"in" the home team's first fixture, a large number of spectators lined the ropes. I heartily congratulate the crowd on its fairness, as every good mon by either team was warmly applauded. The teams were as follows — Denbigh: Goal, S. Griffiths; full backs, Llew Kees and J. S. Williams halt-backs, D. G. Williams, T. A. Davies (captain), and T. Davies forwards, E. E. Davies, W. E. Hugh's, Ellis Edwards, H. iiandlev, and B. Davies. Hanrwst Goal, Dick Jones; full-backs, W. Owen, and Salisbury Roberts half-backs, M(-Naliglitoii, Gren- ville Jones (captain), and Chisolm; forwards, B. Grif- fiths, D. Jones, Howel Roberta, H. iliei-ce and A. Rich- ards. Referee: Mr E. Lloyd-Williams* Bangor. Denbigh having won the toss the had to face the sun. R^b.-rts set the leather moving and the visitors advanced, Chisholm passing to the left wing, Richards gained possession; but when in a favourab.e position he was pulled up for "otf-side." The home- sters retaliated, but Will Owen nipped in and sent the had in the direction of Richards, who, with a header, nearly realised. B. Davies then, made a line 1 lash along the left, but finished olf with a shot which went- hig-h Oyer the cross-bar. From the ensuing goal kick, Pierre and Richards, by accurate combination, ad. vanced in fine style, the latter giving Sam Griffiths a good handful. Edwards secured, and by the aid of his wings got into position, but sent the leather be- hind. The Denbigh forwards again advanced, Ed- wards this time sending in a clinking grounder, which Dick Jones neatly iicld-ed. A nice movement by Grif- fiths and Joiks was spoilt by J. S., who passed the sphere to Edwards. The pivot dashed forward and part- ed to Ben Davie*, but the latter had gone too far uad was called up for "off-side." The "Tykes" now pressed hard, the home backs and Dick Jones being severely tried. The ordeal, how- ever, was a short duration, play being removed to mid- held. After some tricky exchanges, Tom Albert severe- ly tested Dick, but the I-R,). custodian appeared invulnerable. The visitors now woke up, and Pierce, from the left, sent in a oblique shot. which nearly beat Griffiths. Pierce again gained nossession aad parted to Richards, who grazed the upright. Randalls at last relieved the strain, and inaugurated an attack on the visitors' citadel, and a rather anxious time ensued, until Will Owen with a lofty kick sent the leather up the field. Pierce and Richards, who now understood each other thoroeghly, by pretty combination, came into position, Richards testing Griffiths with a scorcher The home left) retaliated, Randalls skimming the cross- bar. A foul ageinst the visitors close to the penalty- line looked dangerous, but Edwards sent the leather high over the cross-bar. Denbigh again pressed, until Chisholm relieved, but the home right again advanced, Ned Ifan testing Dick with a header. A fine run bv Richards along th ■ left wing deserved success, but Sanimie was quite safe. The "Tykes" then retaliated with a vengeance, and absolutely bombarded the visi- tors' gnal, but the charge remained intact. H Pierce at last secured, and dashed down the field, finishing off with a long, low shot, which was neatly picked up by Sammie. At this juncture the whistle sounded half-time. Neither side having scored.
RESTARTING WITH A CLEAN SHEET. On resuming, the visitors' attacked, Pierce testing Sammie. The home right gained possession, Ked Ifan feeing a corner off Roberts, and Hughes receiving, the ensuing centre shot over the bar. The "Tykes" now became very aggressive, but Hughes again shot over, l'i'rce and Richards at last emerged from the ruck and dashed down the field, Pierce sending in a shot which skimmed the upright. The home right were next conspicuous, Ked Ifan sending in a low shot from close quarters, Dick.saving by falling his whole length and throwing clear from that attitude. The "Rooster's" custodian was just in time to stop a hard shot from Edwards", a fine display of goal keeping which elicited from the crowd a cheer of warm ap- proval. Hughes in a couple of seconds sent in a shot which gave the crowd the impression that it htd found the net and a wild cheer rent the air, but, alas, the leather had found the net from "behind." and the cheer was followed by a silence that could be felt. Dick was again called to defend, and cleared a fine straight shot from Edwards. Grenville, after a suc- cessful tussle with haif-a-dozen "Tvkes," parted to Pierce, who sent in a lightning fhot, which was marvellously chared by Sammie. The "Roosters" at this period had to sustain a serious and protracted at- tack, but the "Tykes," although shooting for all they were worth, utterly failed to find the net. The plav now assumed a character of attack and defence until nearly the end of the game. The homesters attacking fiercely kept up a sort of maxim gun bombardment, so rapid as to cause Dick Jones to fist out with both hands like a pugilist. He appeared to bear a charmed life, the ball was on the edge of the goal mouth for at least thirty seconds, and although kicked and bang- ed at close quarters, it would not pass the magic line. It was a moment of intense excitement, durinp which some yelled, whiie others held their breath, juet as the "Roisters" broke away and were flying towards the home goal burning with revenge for the late ordeal the whistle sounded, the game resulting in a draw- no points having been secured by either side.
COLWYN BAY v. PWLLHELI. MERITORIOUS WIN FOR THE VISITORS. Pwllheli 2 goals. Colwyn Bay 1 g-al. The weather proved favourable on Saturday to the match at Colwyn Bay, when Pwllheli, the new addition to the League, were the via- tors- Being practically an unknown quantity, yet coming- down with a reputation, it was not surprising to find a large crowd of spectators. The Bay should have appeal?*! in their new colours, but these not being to hand they had porforoe to make use of tho familiar "reds." Promptly at 3.30, Mr T. Jones, Holywell, lined up tho men in the following order: — Colwyn Bay: (J. Ilalhvcod, goal; 1-1. Tonkin, 0. E. Williams, backs; E. Griffiths, T. McCann (captain), It. Rowlands, halves; II. Hughes, S. Hitghe.q, Howell Williams, VY. Parry, and J. LI. Owen, forwards- Pwllheli: S. Roberts, goal; W. Thomas, G. Jo no: backs; W. Griffith, Bob Ellis, Bob Jones, halves; R. D. Roberts, Moseley Jonec, T. W. James, Bon Evans, and W. C. Morris, forwards. The homesters were minus the services of Moss Jones, their right wing, and his place was filled by Hugh Hughes. Several well- known faces were seen in the Pwllheli ranks, who a fow years ago were members of the Porlmadoc team. Pwllheli won the toss, and elocted to kick down hill, and Howell Williams set the ball in motion, in weather m re suifablo for cricket than football. The Bay were the first to show up, and agisted by a free kick, got to close quarters, but the leather was run out. Carried to the other end, Pwllheli had a similar opening, which, however, was nullified by cff- side. Play was of a give and take nature, the homesters having slightJv the batter of the ex- changee. During an attack Ilowell Williams only just failed with a shot that topped the bar by inches. They immcdiatelv afterwards gained a corner, but this was "headed over. Pwllheli broke away, and R. D. Roberts put in a. shot which went clean across the goal- mouth, escaping the far corner by inches. Pwllheli were now very aggressive, and gave Hallwood a very anxious t.i rnA. On several co- casions the homesters had bcautiful openings, but erratic shooting spoilt, them. Two good openings were nullified through J. LI. Owen being offside. Play o~ntinui?d to rule in favour of the Reds up to Viie interval, but every movement failed to materialise. Halt-time ar- rived with a clean sheet-
HOMESTERS OPEN THE SCORING. Resuming, Pwllheli immediately took up the running, but shaped hadiy in IronUof goal- A foul against McCann spelt danger, but the subsequent free kick was put ov<r bar. The home left tried to open the scoring, and J. LJ. Owen narrowly missed, but was given disiJe. Pwllheli played with determination, and were constantly dangerous, but ti,e home dexenoa managed to cope with e, ery call made upon them. Play now commenced to drag, the long grass and the heat telling upon the men. The homesters took up the running, and forced two corners in quick succession, but without result. Pwllheli were again conspicuous, but 00 Ben- Evans finished a good movement by shoot- ing' wide. A fine movement was initiated by McCann, which culminated in tho homesters opening the score. "Tommy" tackled Mcseley Jones, and was successful in robbing him oi thei leather. lie parted to Parry, who, in turn, sent it along the ground to J. LI. Owen. 'The latter got well down, and put in a perfect cen- tre, which Stanley Hughes completed by steer- ing into the cornier of the net. This success was greeted with kud cheering. Following up this the Bay forced a corner, but again nothing ref;lIl teJ. The Reds" were now enjoying the major portion of tfhe play, but although several op- portunities pros. nted themselves, they failed. Pwllheli broke away, and W. C: Morris went right through and scorcd. Further misfortune was to follow, R. D. Roberts hreaking through and beating Halhvood with a Wit-]I onlv a few minutes to play, Morris was hurt, and the game had to be delayed, He soon re- covered, and the play was resumed. There re- ni.dn-edl only four minutes to play, and although the Bay ware urged on by their spectators, they failed to equalise, and tilus lo..t their first home match by 2 goals to 1.
FRIENDLY MATCHES, CONWAY v. ALUMiNiUSVJ WORKS r.C. THE "BLUES" WIN THEIR OPENING GAME. (By "Linesman ). Cc,nway 9 goal S. Aluminium Works 0 goals. Conway signalised the opening of their season by defeating a team representing' the Dolg'ar-rog Aluminium Works, in a friendly fixture, to the tuno of 9 0. Notwithstanding the friendly nature of the game, there was a goodly crowd present. In the unavoidable absence of tho genial "Uncle" Lloyd, Mr Robert Jones, secre- tary of the Conway Club, acted as referee. Many familiar faces were absent from the Ccaiway ranks, induding W. J. Jones, who per- formed so well at centre half-back last season, Between the sticks, Edge, a newly-secured play- er \10 hails from Chester, made his first ap- pearance. The backs were the identical pair who did service last season. In the haJf-back line, Skipper Bob Owen undertook the centra I IV,Itl<),Tl, with J. Hughes, a Deganwy player, on his right, and Wilson, tho erstwhile veteran, on his left. An experimental front ilank did exceedingly well, as the score testifies. teams were as follows:- C. mway: Edge, goal; Tom Jones and O. Ellis, bcu-ks; J. Hughes, Bob Owen (oapt.) and Wilson, hall-backs; Evans, Jones, Sa,ni Parry, Llewelyn Roberts and Will Stone, forwards. Aluminium Works F.C. Fret). Birkett, goal; Wrill Roberts and W. Evans, backs; Owen Jones, Tal. Hughes and W. Tudor, ha K-backs; G. King. W. Wini.at.s, W. Lovell, Evan Jones and Jonathan Jones, forwards. Conway won the toss, and the visitors faced the suri. The visitors at cnce invaded the home territory- but Torn Jones sent the hall down field. Sam Parry received, and sending <;n to I Jew. Roberts, enabled that player to teat Birkett. hollowing this "Novv" Elhs was called upcn to clear, and succeeded. W ill Stone was next prominent, but he sent over the bar. Skipper Owen then served to Sam Parry, who put past Birkett, a.nd the "Blues" were two ahead in the first flv\) minutes of the game. After that there was no stopping them. They were all over t.ho Aluminiuui men. Once they did get going, but Hughes cleared nicelv, and 011 another occasion a "hands" spoiled their chance. It was not long' before Conway added a third goal, Sam Parry finding é¡e net as t.110 •result of a nice centre by Evans from the right. Before the interval arrived, the homo forwards had rushed tlie ball through once more, thus re- cording their fourth point. Half-time: Con- way 4, Aluminium Works, 0. Resuming play, Conway c,iicl, more assumed the aggressive, and the second half was not manv minutes old before Bob Owen registered the fifth goal. After a few midfield exchanges tho "Blues" again got g<oing, and a shot from the home left sent the leather across the goal- mouth, and Eva.ns rushing in from the right made no imistake. Jonathan Jones, the visit- ing outside left, hereabouts had an opportunity, but Hughes spoiled his prospects. Tom Jones was now amongst tno forwards. A corner for Conway seemed likely to materialise, but Sam Parrv headed over the bar. The homesters were won again vigorously attacking, and D. Jones drove t,he leather past Birkett. Tom Jones had several grocd tries, once hitting the crossbar, and at length he found the net with a fine shot. Will Stono added two more, both the result of clever individual efforts, and the whistle blew with Cc.nwav victors by nine clear goals. Final result: Conway 9, Aluminium Works 0.
LLANRWST ALBIONS v. PENRHIWARDWR ROVERS. The Albions commenced their season with a match at Talycaln, on Saturday, against the l'enrhiwardwr Rovers. Although the latter exceeded the Albions in size and weight, the quickness of the lads m.orc than made up the dclicirncy. After the opening exchanges the Rovers advanced, but failed to penetrate the back line. Tlie venue changed and the lads were soon clustering in front of the home goal, Stephen Hughes with a, mangiheent shot from near the corner flag opening the Albions' score. The Itovers dallied, but the Aibions had tasted the sweels of victory and practicully hemmed their opponents in front of their own goal until half-time, when the Albions lead by six goals to nil. Play having been resumed the Rovers pressed, but after a scrimmage the bucks cleared. The Albions retaliated, and rained shots at the home citadel with tho result that two more goals were added to the number. The homesters before the termination of the game secured two goals, the result being as follows, Albions 8, Rovers 2.
BANGOR CHIT-CHAT. The least said about Saturday's Combination match at Bangor, the better. 44- -k Whilst the Crewe men were sunerior in all ctepiirtmtante, and in all points of the game, they woro not 6 goals better, if the general run of play is taken into consideration- It was a miserable start of the season, but it is to be hoped that the committee will not be thrown into a state of panic, and make too drastic changes. What. is wanted is a trained footbalkr to instruct the local totum how to play. k .k To ure a ooiwmoil or garden term, there waa too much "messing about" on Saturday. When the Crewe forwards goti anywhere near the Bangor goal, the ball was in the net. When the Bangor forwards got anywherenear the Crewe goal, they hesitated, and the defenders promptly bundled them off the ball. » There was also far too much wild kicking-, "Anywhere as long as the ball is cleared" ap- peared to be the main idea of the half-backs. Bangor made a promising start, but as the game progressed the visitors mastered them. The game was scarcely a fair trm for Mc- Lachlan, the custodian, who was beaten by six splendid shots. The wire announcing the result of the Holy- head match caused sonia surprise. The new Liverpool men secured by the Bangor Executive were given a trial. Some of the Bangor players were not flat- tered) by the treatment they received. Ireland is reported to have plaved a clinking game.
COLWYN BAY CLiPPINGS. To be defeated in their home match was a sad blow to the "Recli." They had opportunities innumerable, but failed to take advantage of them. The weak point was the erratic shooting in the first half, numerous ehots finding their way over the bar. Pwllheli were undoubtedly much smarter on the ball, their combination being pretty to watch. Reverting to the players, Hallwood, in goal, spcilt a good performance by a mistake which cost his side a goal. No matter whether the player was offside or not, he should have effected a clearance, and then claimed. The backs were good and bad in turns. ^Tonkin worked hard, but was inclined to lift the ball to much 0. E. Williams found a rare handful in R. D. Roberts. » The halves were good, with McCann well in front. The genial skipper gavo of his very best, and never let the "Pwll forwards rest. • » » ■ The absence of Moss was greatly felt. The best wing was the left. P^rry .i.rrd Owen did some good wrJrk. and it was unfortunate that at the erucicai moment, the former should have been hurt. Pwllheli are to be congratulated upon opening their League fixtures with a victory. They are a well bal- anced team who will be well up the ladder when the season closes. Among the forwards, Mcseley Jones was the pick. Working on a quiet systematic way, he fed his partner in good effect. The pivot, and the left wing pair went to make a strong line. On Saturday the "Reù" meet Llandudno at Llan- dudno in the League, when they will endeavour to open their winning account.
CONWAY CHATTER. Oonwav have commenced their season well, and it is onlv to bo hoped that the form displayed in their irii- tiai match will be retained throughout the season. Mr Robert Jones, the newly appointed se-cretarv, has already handled the forms to good effect, ■ and 18 nn.il or th"reuboiito are now signed on The return of tint redoubtable pivot. Tommy Ather- ton, win be most welcome. There is a!so every reason to brieve that W. J. Jones will soon figure in their ranks once more. .)1- Bob Owen, as captain, is a popular one. To return to Saturday's irame, the "Blues" were in a happy mojd. They combined well, and shot well and often. To take the team in rotation, between ,thc sticks had no opportunity of displacing his prowess. Tom and "Now" were 4'themselves,and that is siify-ieient pr-iiso. The halves all were tip-top. Hujrhos, of Dee^anwy. played good football, and it would be well to give him his plaee in a Leegue makh. Bob Owen was gieat, and Wilson she-wed that ho has not forgotten his old prowess with the ball. The forwards were all clever and nippy, and it is hard to choose the best of the quintette. Stone played well, and Llewelyn Roberts, his partner,' is also a pro- mining man. Little Jones was smart, and some of Ms touches were exceedingly pretty, whilst Sam Parry was also in fine fettle. Evans is a promising outside man, but ho must be smarter in getting away with the ball. It is hardly necessary to criticise the visiting team. Their forwards were sharp enough in their way, but hlld no idra of combination. The half-back line was weak, their backs were unreliable, and their custodian did not show to advantage.
DENBIGH v. LLANRWST. "The best and most exciting game we ever witnessed'' was the verdict of the Denbigh spectators on Satur- day. after witnessing the struggle between the (Jwvdr men and the representatives of the town on the ilill The teams were so level that it was a case of at- tack and defence alternately, the spectators being kept in a state of excitement throughout. The men appeared able to do everything except find- ing the net. Both teams on several occasions appear- ed on the point of realising, but yet—some one got in the way every time. For the homesters, Sam Griffiths in goal, was safe, and stopped several hot shots. Both backs worked hard, Jack Sam probably being the safest of the two. Of the half-backs, Tom Albert the skipper of the team, was the best, but both the other men exhibited fine tackling powers. -x- Of the forward line, Ned Ifan and Randall were pro- bably the most conspicuous. Hughes w3S very active, but whrn in front of goal his shots were usually wide. Kdwards, as pivot, and the others, will with a little practice, undoubtedly improve, and give a good ac- count of themselves during the season. For the visitors, Dick Jones plaved a clinking game between the posts. On several occasions he was ab- solutely bombarded and had to Set out right and left. He is a grand warden, if he can only keep up the present form. W. Owen was as usual safe, and with the assistance of Salisbury Roberts, played a fine defensive game. The half-back line were a grand trio, and the cream of the eleven. Of the foward line, H. Pierce was far and awav the best man, Richards being a good second. B. Grif- fiths played a plodding game, while D. Jones was al- ways giving his opponents something to do. Howel Roberts, as a pivot, did well and will improve Considering that more than half of the "Roosters" team was made up of the late Gwydr Rovers now amalgamated with the town club, their achievement on Saturday in bringing off a draw was a matter for mutual congratulation amongst the players, and will instil more confidence into the ranks.
HOLYHEAD CHIPS. (By "Critic.") It was liard to realise that a good record disappeared on Saturday, with the defeat by Bangor Reserve. • Up to that day the Swifts had not lost a .single League match at home since their first season, when they were beaten by Portmadoc. What other coast team.can boast ot a like record? m • • •

LLANRWST FOOTBALL CLUB. A special meeting of the Llanrwst Football Club was held W-day, week. Dr. Huw Williams presiding. The Secretary (Mr Hughes) explained that the meet- ing had been eallell to consider what action the club should take in view of the suspension of C. Batten until December 21st next. Personally, he could not help .thinking a mistake had been made. Batten had never signed a League form until a fortnight ago, and had only played in a trial match since. It was obvious that Batten had done nothing to deserve suspension. Ho had dratted a letter to the secretary of the League on the matter. Tlie Chairman wished it to be understood that the ex- ecutive committee had notiiing to do with the matter. "Ir 1 t)oncs contended that they should be fur- nish d with farther information, so as to enable tho eluD no make enquiries, and if necessary to defend the player. After further discussion it was decided, on the mo- tion of Mr Keen, seconded by Mr J. Williams, to send the letter drafted by the secretary to the secretary of the League.

The locals did not play in Saturday's game as we know they can, and were vanquished by a better team on the day's play. ■» Instead of shooting when they lind the chance the forwards, too confidently attempted to "walk" the ball into the net. It was not like Collier to allow that free kick to find its billet without at least making an effort to save, and the citynien's third goal was a "gift." Every player has his "off" day, and I sincerely hope it was Collier's last. » Parry played a good, hard game, and covered Space well. Taylor played well at times. it 110 W. T. worked like a Trojan throughout, and had hard lines in not scoring. Dick Ellis played a good game, feeding his forwards judiciously. Coming to the forward line, Johnny Rowlands was the pick, and played a hard game, although not re- ceiving much support. T> Johnny Jones and his partner seemingly did not understand each other, with the result that much of Johnny's good work went abegging. /Iõ' It was a pity R. C. was moved to the right, as I am confident he would shine in the centre, given a little more practice. The Bangorians had a good all round team, Wil- liams, in goal, effecting some splendid clearances. -It The backs were very safe, Ireland being slightly the better. •* The halves were a hard-working trio, Aaron Jones playing a very cool and confident game and tacking well. » Telford, in the centre, infused any amount of dash into his play, and shot well on occasions. .)t .)1. The left wing proved to be in rare trim, some of their combined bits of play being exceedingly pretty. Hughie Owen played a splendid game and was re- sponsible for several fine individual efforts. W. E. Jones, too, played a good game, The Swifts need not be discouraged for they have had a splendid sequence of successes on their own ground. I hope this defeat will infuse more life and enengy into their play, and prove to them that if they mean to attain a high position in the League, tlicy will have to give their best at every match. it I noticed among the spectators the President (Capt. Mclnstrey), and Dr. Clay. Might I suggest to the 'Coinm iltee the need of having some canvass round the outskirts of the ground, and especially fit the town end, it being entirely due to good fortune that the windows of the houses over- lo;oking it are nut broken.
