NORTH WALES JUNIOR CUP. (SECOND ROUND). BANGOR RESERVES v. HOLYHEAD RESERVES. EXIT THE HARBOURMEN. (By Spectator.) Bangor Ret-erves 6 Holyhead Reserves 3 A large crowd witnessed the game played on the Town Ground, Bangor, on Saturday, in ideal football Weather. Mr Slater, Llandudno, acted as referee, and he lined up the teams in the following order :— Bangor Reserves: McLachlan; W. Parry and HvlÍa Williams Fred Dargie, H. John Davies and W. Jones Ivor Thomas, Harry Smith, R. Jones, W. E. Jones And W. H. Jonee. Holyhead Reserves Hugh Williams; Owen Morgan and Rowland Williams R. H. Owen, R. J. Jones and W. Brown; Hugh Brown, Owen Williams, H. O. Jones, Lewis Jones and John Jones. Bangor opened play and a rush was repulsed by the visiting defence. The homesters, however, kept tip the pressure and were dangerous, but the Har. bourmen kept them at bay. The visiting forwards 3oon obtained possession and ran along, but Hwfa and Will Parry were ready for them and the latter cleared well. W. E. Jones, in a ruch, was fouled, and Hwfa Williams taking the kick delivered well in front, and W. H. Jones appeared aggressive, but Owen Morgan robbed him and sent on to Lewis Jones and John Jonee, who were successfully tackled by Parry. Owen Williams and Hughie Brown gained possession and raced along passing to Lewis Jones, who returned to Owen Williams. The inside right worked his way to the goal, where he beat McLachlan with a simple shot. Bangor, from the centre, rushed along, but Dick Jones passed beyond W. H. Jones and the sphere went into touch. From the throw-in W. E. Jones caught the ball and dribbled through, but the HOLYHEAD TWO UP. leather again vent out of play. R. J. Jones received the tea from a goal-kick and he passed to Lewis -r Jones, who beat McLachlan and scored the second goal for Holyhead. Bangor up to now seemed very much out of form, for whenever the forwards were within reach of goal they seemed to have a knack of slipping or miskicking, and matters looked pretty ominous, but W. H. Jones raised the hopes of the home supporters by dribbling through four or five players and aimed for goal, and Rowland Williams sent the sphere to the corner flag. Ivor Thomas took the corner kick, and sent the ball just along the crossbar, when H. J. Davies headed it in and scored for Bangor. Brown fouled W. E. Jones and Hwfa giving the free-kick, a melee followed, and Bangor found the net, but it was offside. Hands against Bangor now gave the Harbourmen an opportunity and H. Owen Jones received, but Hwfa spoilt his aim and the ball went over the goal line. Hughie Brown passed to midfieid, and H. John Davies missing his kick allowed the Harbourmen to break through, but Hwfa cleared and the citizens' front rank, led by W. H. Jones, raided the visitors' strong- hold, but the sphere was sent ever. However, W. E. Jones again sprang into prominence with a fast drive, which went a couple of inches on the wrong side of the billet. The Harbourmen's left wing made tracks for goal, but Fred Dargie secured the ball, which travelled on to Ivor Thomas, who found the net, but he was declared offside. The citizens' outside left, W. H. Jones, again made his presence felt and kicked right into goal, but Hugh • • .lliams cleared. Half-time was called soon after with the score: Holyhead Reserves 2, Bangor Reserves 1. Bangor appeared bent on scoring, for immediately after Holyhead had set the ball rolling, Harry Smith was in close proximity to the goal and he banged for a, but a home player happened to be in his way and the ball was sent towards midfield. Smith again ran along and shot behind. The Citizens' swarmed on the visiting charge, but were pulled up for offside. W. H. Jones swiftly ran along the left and directed the ball goalwards, where the custodian made a partial save, and Ivor Thomas receiving, scored the second gaol for Bangor. Ivor Thomas delivered a perfect corner-kick from which the ball grazed the Crossbar and Hwfa found no difficulty in heading into the net. Holybead made a feeble attack and then Dick Jones kicked against Rowland Williams the ball going out, giving Bangor another corner kick. Harry Smith took the kick and the Citizens bundled the visiting defence into the net, but the ball got out of play by some infringement, and a penalty was awarded Bangor. Hwfa sent in a clink- ing shot with which Hugh Williams had no chance and scored the fourth for Bangor. The Bangor HOLYHEAD SINK. players now completely overwhelmed the Harbour- men and did what they liked with them. W. H. Jones worked the ball down very near to the goal and Hugh rushed out and cleared. Smith ran down and Dick Jones just before goal kicked skywards. Another free-kick given by Hwfa reached W. E. Jones, who, however, shot feebly, and Smith sent the leather over the line. The Holyhead forwards suddenly looked dangerous and John Jones ended a good run with a wide shot. Hwfa directed a free-kick beyond the visiting backs, when W. H. Jones ran up and passed to W. E. Jones, who scored a beauty. R. J. Jones sent the ball on to Johnny Jones, who raced along and looked as if he was going to score when Hwfa nipped in and cleared. The visiting front line kept up their on- slaughts, but all their attempts at combination was spoilt by the City defence. Dargie, for Bangor, at this period played with much dash, and an attack by Hughie Brown was repulsed by Hwfa, and Smith took up the running when he was fouled by Rowland Williams. Dargie taking the kick, sent to the corner flag off Rowlands. Ivor Thomas receiving, shot under the crossbar, and scored the sixth for Bangor. Hughie Brown made a run along the right, but Will Parry spoilt his plans and cleared. However, the visitors' attacking line again made tracks for goal and Lewis Jones scored. In the course of the rush Dargie was hurt and the game was stopped, he having to be carried off the field. W. E. Jones from this to the end of the game played in the half-back position, instead of Dargie, and although Bangor made very good rushes nothing of note occurred, and the game llnished Bangor 6, Holyhead 3.
TALYBONT v. CONWAY. THE "BLUES" BADLY BEATEN. A SURPRISE PACKET. (By "Linesman.") Talybont 3 Conway 1 Having- safely emerged from the 1st round o f the Junior Cup competition, Conway on Saturday journeyed to Talybont to try oonclu- sicms with the local te-am in the second round of the same competition, with the result that their aspirations have come to an abrupt termi- nation. The attendance was sparse when the teams were lined up by the referee, Mr R. D. Richards, of Bangtir. Several changes were evident in the ranks of tho Conway team. u Frank Jones, who was to have filled the out- side loft position, failed to turn up, and the visitors were in a dilenuna until Secretary Robert Jones stepped in to make up the deficiency, The players turned out as follows: — Conway: Daniels; W. J. Jones and Hugh Jones; W. T. Evans, L. Hugh Roberts, and Walter Good; Wm. Owen, J. R. Jones, LIew. Pritohard, D. T. Jones, and Robert Jones. Talybont: Finohett; J. Williams and O. Jones; Roberts, Tally Hughes, and Jarred; C. King, M. Davies, Lovel, Evan Jones, and Wm. Evajis. Conway having lost the toss, were put to play up hill. Early in the game the '"Blues'' saw that the home team meant business, for they made progress per their right wing, and Hugh Jones, the visiting left full, was found wanting. W-. J Jo no, howe. cr, ran across to the rescue, and cleared Conway responded, and a corner wns :l'orœd, but they failed to improve upon the chance. Play was quickly transferred to the other end, and W. J. Jojues was prominent in some fine clearances. However, he could not keep tiho Talyboit forwards out, and a corner led to some severe pressure on the Conway goal. but a free kick against the homesters re- lieved. The "nIlles" then went away in fine style, and R. Jones placed nicely to "J. R. who essayed a good shot for goal, but Finohett proved equal to the occasion, and fisted out in fine style The home forwards raced off down the field, and W. J. Jones was called upon to clear. Back again to the other end, and "J. R. getting through the home defence, banged in a shot from twenty yards' range, but his effort went wide of the mark. Hereabouts, a free kick was given against Good for handling, bu.t the homes-toors gained no advantage from it. Apram the Conway defence were in difficulties through Hugh Jones giving a corner. Daniels "W. J." IN FORM. just managed to get the ball away from one of the home forwards at the expense of another corner. This was cleared by "W. J. who was playing a magnificent game. And so the first half fritted away, and neither side claimed any material advantage. Play was continually sway- ing' from end to end. One minute, a couple of corners were forced in quick succession, and the next the homesters had obtained a corner at the other end. Only another five minutes to go and still no score. At length, however, the homesters got going in earnest. Evans got past W. J. Jones, and sent in a fine centre, and Evan Jones rushing in headed the leather into the net. The interval arrived with the home- sters one goal ahead. Half-time: Talybonti 1, Conway 0. When the interval arrived I, along with al- most all the spectators, felt confident that tihe "BIues" were going- to win, for although they were one goal behind, it was not unreasonable to expect them, to score at least three when placing down such a heavy slope. This, how- ever, was not the case, for in the opening stages the homesters were at once the aggressors, and continued so for the better part of the second half. The first few minutes found W. J. Jones called upon to clear. The "Blues," however, soon responded, and forced a corner on the left, but R. Jones puts behind. J. Williams, the home right full, was next prominent with a fine clearance, but Evans, the visiting right half- back, headed back ag-ain. After some more exchanges the "Blues" got down from a throw in, and J. R. Jones pouncing on tho- ball, crashed in a grand shot, which Finchett newer saw, the ball striking the under part of the crossbar and entering the net This put mat- ters level, and the faces of the Conway sup- porters brightened as they saw the improvement in the chances of their favourites. It was then that a surprise was sprung upon the Conwayites. After that equalising goal, even the most &rdent of Talybont supporters j I were ready to say gQod bye to the Junior Cup. But tihe unexpected often happens, and espec- ially does this apply to football, for the home I team were now all over the visitors, who seemed quite helpless to save themselves. Time and a<gain they got within shooting distance, time and again "W. J." would spoil their attempts, or Daniels would stop the shots. But such a state of affairs could not last for ever, and it was not long before the inevitable happened, and Will Evans, getting througfh, put the leather past Daniels, who made a good attempt to save. Another corner was wasted by the "Blues." The Talybont forwards returned to the attack, and onoe more their efforts wore crowned with success, Evan Jones scoring his second goal of of tihe match, and maJùng tihe score 3-1 in favour erf the home team. Conway only once looked like scoring after that, and on tlhat oc- casion, Finohett managed to get the ball out by a mere fluke. Play was mostly at, the Con- way goal, the homesters playing a wonderful up-hill game. Time arrived with the score un- altered- Final result: Talybont) 3, Conway 1. Conway supporters were disappointed with the result Talybont made more of their chances thaJi did "Blues," and Oonwary have only thcix cus-iodcan, Daniels, and W. J. Jones to thank that the score was not bigger. Talybont v\ere the better te-am, and thoroughly deserved w win, and the (scone just about represents the bal&noo of the play.
LLANRWST RESERVES v. LLANDUDNO AMATEURS. THE "COCKERELS" QUALIFY FOR THE THIRD ROUND. (By Dolydd.) | Llanrw&fc j j Llandudno q The Llanrwst Reserves, fresh from their recent victory over the "Quairymen," fulfilled their ensign, ment with the Llandudno Amateurs in the second round of the Junior Cftp on the Gwydr ground on Saturday. The weather was exceedingly finc and the ground in perfect order. The Amateurs were at full strength, while the Reserves were represented by the same men as in the bout against Festiniog. Mr Tom Jones, Holywell, acted as referee. The teams were as follow:— Llanrwst Reserves: Gillctt; J. R. Jones and Salis- bury Roberts; H. Roberts, Chisholm and W. J. Chain; Humphrey Roberts, Howel Roberts, W. T. Jones, S. Hughes and L. J. Davies. Llandudno Amateurs: T. Hobson; Sam Williams and Trevor Roberts; W. Edwards, E. O. Hughes and W. S. Owen W. D. Williams, J. M. Davies, J. E. Williams, W. Jones and James Williams. The visitors having won the toss opened the game with their faces against the town goal. "W.T." set the ball moving, and the "Stripes'' immediately at- tacked, but Salisbury removed the sphere from the zone of danger, when it was pounced upon by the home pivot, who crossed to Davies, but the latter was too late, the ball running out of touch. From the ensuing throw-in, W. D. Williams secured, and dashing along the right, centred to J. E. Williams, who shot over the crossbar. From the goal hick, "W.T." worked his way along the centre, but got too much speed on the ball which ran over the line. The homesters oontinued to press, but Davies failed to reach a pass from the centre, with the result that the "Stripes" advanced in style, the pivot ultimately sending in a swift grounder, which was neatly fielded by Gillett. An attack by the visitors culminated in a free-kiok perilously close to the home citadel, but Williajns placed behind. Chisholm, who was playing a fine game, now attempted a run "on his own," and finished with a hot shot which touched the upright. W. D. Williams initiated a pretty move on the right and was making good ground when he was fouled by Humphrey. The ensuing free-kick proved futile. Jimmy Williams, carefully fed by Will Jones, advanced along the left and forced J. R. Jones to kick out of touch. From the ensuing throw-in, W. T. Jones sent in a long shot, but Trevor Roberts intervened. From another throw-in, Humphrey shot over the bar. The homesters were then granted a free-kick. J. R. Jones placed accurately and a melee followed, from which the visiting pivot emerged and attempted a solo run along the centre, but J. R. Jones dispossessed him and punted up the field. J. E. Williams, however, se- cured again and sent in a beauty from close quarters. Gillett cleared by tipping over the crossbar. The visi- tors again pressed, but Chain, who was exhibiting brilliant form, relieved the strain. The homesters, who were as active as terriers, again advanced in line. Humphrey attempting a finishing touch to the move with a header, but Hobson cleared at the expense of a corner. From the ensuing centre, Humphrey placed behind. The "Coelierels continued to press, but fail- ed to penetrate the visitors' defence, until at last Jack Williams broke away and passed to Will Jones, who spoiled a goad move by handling. In a few minutes the Reds were again swarming in front of Hobs in. A melee followed, and everyone appeared to be kicking wildly at close quarters, until at last Sam Williams sent it behind, conceding a corner. Davies took charge of the corner kick, but sent the leather the wrong side of the net. Chain was next in evidence with a fine shot, which missed by inches only. Humphrey was ne:t responsible for pretty tactics, but fell a victim to Sam Williams. However, the home pivot secured and sent in a shot which was successfully negotiated by Hobson. Chishlm follow- ed with a header. Hobson fisted out but W.T. return- ed against the crossbar-a narrow escape for Hobson. LIanrwst again pressed, Davies testing Hobson with a ground r. The "Stripes" then attacked and Jack Williams shot for goal. Gillett ran out and mis- kicked, the ball rolling within a foot of the goal line. Will Jones rushed up, but though he had no one to face he kicked the leather across the goal- mouth and behind the net. J. R. Jones exultantly kicked the leather out of danger almost up to the opposite goal. Davies secured, but his centre went begging. However, the other forwards dashed up and a wild scrimmage ensued. Howel Roberts, who had been hovering on the outskirts of the crowd for an opportunity at last found an opening, and sent in a brilliant shot which gave Hobson no chance. The home supporters cheered wildly. The visitors made a strenuous effort to equalise and attacked strongly. Jack Williams again shot behind. Their right wing then made ground, Williams centring to the pivot, but Jack once more shot over. At half-time the Re. serves led by one goal to nil. On resuming play the "Stripes" attacked, but were easily repulsed, Chisholm trying his luck with a long pot. However, the visitors again pressed, the centre- forward essaying a daisy-cutter which Gillett saved by throwing himself full length on the ground. After a fruitless attack by the "Reds," the visitors retali. ated, but Jack again shot over. A miskick by Sam let in Howel, but Hobson ran out and picked up the ball from his toes. Davies, nicely fed by Chain, got into position and gave Hobson a warm handful. Howell met the throw-out and returned the leather into Hobson's arms. The homesters continued to press until Chisholm sent behind. The visitors then at- tacked fiercely, but were repulsed by the home backs. The home left then advanced, but Sammy kicked out of touch. Davies had another opportunity, but Hob- son cleared successfully. The visitors right got away and Gillett ran out. Will Jones, with an open goal in front of him shot high over the crossbar. However, in a few minutes, Will made amends with a swift grounder, which Gillett saved by throwing himself at full length along the goal line. The homesters then pressed but failed to increase their lead, the match resulting in a win for Llanrwst by one goal to none.
PWLLHELI V. CARNARVON. THE "CANARIES" SING LOW. (By "Ricardo"). Pwllhfli 2 Carnarvon 1 A 1a,rge number of spectators assembled at Fwllheli on Saturday to witness the contest between the Pwll- heli Juniors and Carnarvon Juniors in the second round for the North Wale's Coast Junior Cup. The referee, Mr Edwards, lined up the teams as follows; Pwllheli: Sam Roberts, W. Thomas and A. Hughes; Thompson, Bob Ellis and &)b Jones; U. D. Roberts, Moseley Jones, Will Griffith, John Williams and W. C. Morris. Carnarvon T. H. Jones G. Hughes and Griffith J. Griffith, M. Herbert, and J. Williams R. H. Roberts. E. LI. Hughes, W. Jones, H. Roberts and John Jones. The home team won the Was, and soon after the start a tussle took place close to danger point, but Sammy saved well. Pwllheli became aggressive and R. D. Roberts dashing along the line passed the ball. John Williams netted the leather and thus ;,¡ y drew first blood for the homesters. Carnarvon re- covering from the effects of their misfortune, advanced bodily for an attack on their opponents' goal. Mat- ters looked ominous, but danger was averted by the ball going over. Again the attack was renewed, Rhos and Arthur having all they could manage to prevent a fall of their citadel. The visiting forwards peppered the goal with shots, but Sammy was all there. The onrush by the visitors having been more than checked, I activities were observed at the Carnarvon end. G. Hughes and Griffith, the backs, had their stamina tried. R. D. Roberts, failing to se air passages be- tween the Carnarvon defenders, shot overhead at long range, and struck the crossbar. A throw-up on the left of Carnarvon goal sent the sphere to the right where W. C. Morris, the smart outside right, at an awkward angle, brought the points to 2. Carnarvon were fine in midfield, but u-eok in tl <'ir attack at tlii goalmouth. Their bombardment of the PwUheli goal was tantalising, but erratic shots on their part gave relief to the homesters, and once again R. D. Roberts gained possession and dashed down the field and sent the hall against the crossbar. The Carnarvon backs, an excellent couple, stuck well to their posts during trying ordeals; then the halves, in combination, passed to the forwards and there was a beautiful attack on the home stronghold. A corner, which fell to the lot of the visitors proved of no avail. Moseley and Will Griffith gained possession of the leather and got over the first ramparts. A corner followed, but a foul against Pwllheli brought the ball right to the home goal, and put Sammy on his met- tle. Bob Ellis relieved the pressure, and gave an op ning for the home forwards to get through. T. H. Jones did first-class work at the goal. Both teams finished the first half with Pwllheli 2, Carnarvon 0. VISITORS' NOTCH THEIR FIRST POINT. During the second half the visitors played better than during the first moiety. Their combination and pakses were a treat and every man knew, and kept his position: 'How they failed to score half a dozen times I do not know, only that luck seemed to be against them. The visitors' made a. fine combined at- tack and luad the homesters oouped up. Shots be- came furious, and there seemed no chance of getting the ball between the defenders. But, at last, the out- side right shot over Sammy into the net, and thus Carn-arvon won a deserving point. This stroke of luck for the visitors changed the aspect of affairs consider- ably. There was an evident improvement in the play on both sides, and more grim earnestness was noticed in the players. The homesters tried to open an at- tack on the Arvon citadel, but the halves checked them passing the sphere to the visiting forwards. In the rush, the man in possession, when nothing stood be- tween him and the goal, but the custodian, was foul- ed within the sacred area. The free-kick went over the bar. Another free-kick in close proximity to the home goal gave an opportunity to the visitors, but the shot just went the wrong side of the standard. Car- narvon pressed increasingly, and the home backs had to kick out for safety. At a later stage the homesters got down to their opponents' quarters, and Moseley, W. C. Morris, Will Griffith, J. Williams and R. D. ;Roberls hammered at the goal. Intense excitement prevailed, and the next moment shouts of "Oh," drew the attention to the fact that the ball had gone over. For the next few minutes Carnarvon were at- tacking and Sammy on the defensive. The homesters were pressed by their opponents' almost into the goalmouth. The ball was headed in and out, until at last a corner was given. The kick-out gave another splpondid opportunity for an onslaught on Sammy's fortress. Both attack and defence were superb. A cletaranco was effected and midfieid play ensued. Nothing of note took place from now until the finish, when the score stood Pwllheli 2, Carnarvon 1.
FIRST ROUND-RE-PLAYED. COLWYN BAY v. BAGILL T. A LIFELESS GAME. Colwyn Bay 2 Bagillt 0 Compared with their dashing display against Llan- rwat on the previous Saturday, the exhibition given by Colwyn Bay in the replayed tie against Bagillt at Colwyn Bay, last Saturday, was mediocre toO a degree. They held the Bagillt lads with comparative ease when they met a fortnight ago, and it is possible that on that account they regarded the second engage- ment less seriously than would have been otherwise the case. At any rate, that the visitors deserved bet. ter respect was obvious to the spectator from the out- set. It is true that they were beaten by two goals to none, but on the day's play another draw would have been a better reflex of the game. The teams lined up as follows:- Colwyn Bay C. Hallwood Tonkin and E. 0. Wil- liams; Ned Griffiths, Wellings a.nd Rowlanda; Moss Jones, Jack Owen, T. McCann, Walter J. Parry and J. Ll. Owen. Bagillt: H. Stanley; Stephen Jones and R. Bithell; E. Griffiths, James Price and R. Evans; A. Evans, Norman Jones, C. Roberts, J. S. R. Lloyd and T. Davies. In the first half Colwyn Bay faced their favourite goal at the Conway end of the ground, the visitors enjoying the advantage of the slope. After a few preliminary skirmishes in midfield the home left got away, J. Ll. Owen middling effectively. A short, sharp scrimmage followed in the mouth of goal and at length the ball came out in the direction of Mc- Cann, who smartly "booted" it past Stanley, who had previously struggled manfully to effect a clear- ance. Clean forward work by the visitors soon placed Colwyn Bay on the defensive, and there they were 1 kept for some time. E. 0. Williams and Tonkin were happily in their best mood, and here it might be said that but for the home defence-Hallwood sharing the honours-the home side must have been heavily defeated early in the day. li-ne after time the Bagillt forwards swept down tha rEi I, all (We forwards some times sharing in paii; 19 touts of a neat and effective character.

The Colwyn Bay attacking line, on the other hand, was lacking in both dash and cohesion. When they essayed a passing movement II the ball either went beyond a man's reach or to the foot of an opponent. As a rule, Colwyn Bay have been exceptionally smart in taking advantage of a throw-in, but on Saturday they lost the ball three times out of four. In short, the home forwards play- ed a ragged and altogether unsatisfactory game. At one point they lost a golden opportunity when a throw-in took place well in the Bagillt half. The ball was sent out 'well in the direction of two home for. wards, either of whom could easily have netted, but thanks to a lack of understanding between them, it was snapped up by Price, who cleared. At the other end, Norman Jones and Evans executed a pretty little movement, which ended in Roberts missing the net by inches only. On the other wing Lloyd and Davies were seen to advantage immediately afterwards, but the former was equally unfortunate with his shot, Hallwood handling dexterously. In the meantime there had been some exceedingly robust tackling by Tonkin and Ned Griffiths, both of whom were heartily cheered for their sound defensive work. Generally speaking, however, the play was as already indicated, quite unworthy of the teams. There was no further scoring till half-time, when Oolwyn Bay led by a goal to nil. The second half opened with a brisk attack by the visiting right wing, but the old Greenfield player was very wide of the mark with his final shot. At the other end cqlwyn Bay forced a corner per Parry, but the flag-kick came to nothing. Desultory operations in midfield occupied the ensuing fifteen minutes. The visitors continued to play the better football, and it was nothing but rank bad luck that prevented them from not only equalising, but gaining the lead. Evans and Norman Jones were exceedingly busy on their wing, and at least two goals should have come from them during the next ten minutes. Well fed by Grif- fiths and Price they were certainly the best wing on the field. Moss Jones and Jack Owen were far from satisfactory on the home right, whilst Parry and J. Ll. Owen were equally ill at ease on tho other wing. Neither was McCann in his customary form, for liis passing was erratic and his kicking weak. All five were carefully fed for the halves worked well through- out. Ned Griffiths played a particularly fine game, but he was as usual weak with his corner kicking. Twelve minutes from the close of time came the only incident which deserves special mention in this moiety. This was a capital goal from Walter Parry. It was a direct result of a clever bit of individual play by Ned

FLINTSHIRE CHARITY CUP. (FIRST ROUND). MOLD v. SANDYCROFT. Mold 7 Sandycroft 0 I Sandycroft paid a visit to Mold on Saturday in the first round of the Flintshire Charity Cup. Mold play- ed uphill in the first half, and immediately after the start, Algy Jones got away, but failed to score. Sandyeroft pressed hard, but their efforts were of no avail. The outside right was successful in scoring the first goal for Mold. Shortly afterwards, Algy Jones placed the leather into the not with a long shot. This roused the teams considerably, and Sandyeroft dashed away with the ball, but Lockley, at back, was soon on the ball, and returned it to the Moldites. Another goal was netted for Mold by T. Davies, who through- out played an excellent game. At half-time the score stood: Mold 3, Sandycroft 0. On resuming play the visitors proved useless, and Mold scored a further 4 goals, making their win 7-0 T. Davies was responsible for several goals. Peter Davies, the outside left, was in good form, and he passed the ball very nicely to his side.
FRIENDLY MATCHES. HOLYHEAD SWIFTS V. NORMAL COLLEGE. THE SWIFTS WIN AN UNINTERESTING GAME. (By "Critio") Holyhead Swifts 3 Normal College 0 I< al footbafll conditions prevailed on Saturday, notwithstanding the fact that it was the reverse of warm to the onlooker. What should have been an attractive fixture had been arranged for the Swifts, for had not the Normalites run their doughty oppon- ents on the previous Saturday to a goal, the 'Varsity having had to struggle desperately hard for victory? They brought a strong team down, but the home side included some new players-R. C. Jones, Taylor, H. Brown and his brother being absent. The teams lined up in the following order;- Holyhead Collier; Parry and Tom Jones (United); James Evans, W. T. Jones and Dick Ellis; Salusbury Owen, W. J. Jones, Johnny Rowlands (captain), J. Jones and Swaine. Normal College: Evan Davies; Rowlands and R. H. Williams (captain); J. E. Williams, A. J. Cross and R. H. Griffith; Madoc Jones, Palfreman, Tom Evans, Bert Davies and T. Hamer. Johnny. Rowlands having won the toss, decided to defend the town goal, thus giving the visitors' the benefit of the wind. There were but few spectators present when T. Evans set the ball going, the home- sters at once opening an attack on the visiting goal, a nice run by Johnny Rowlands and Swaine coming to an end when the latter shot behind. Hamer and Davies, on the visiting right, next indulged in some nice iay, and the ball eventually going to T. Evans, that player .shot behind wh n well placed. The visi- tors again attacked, but Dick Ellis relieved the pres- sure, the ball going to Johnny Jones, who endeavoured to break through, but Cross kicked into touch. A spell of midfieid play followed, W.T. and Jim Evans doing good work for the homesters, an attack by the [ home quintette being rewarded with a fruitless corner, Johnny Jones heading over the resulting kick. A little later, he and Swaine, by some tricky play, kept the ball hovering in close proximity to the visiting goal, Johnny Rowlands eventually shooting over. Some neat play on the visiting left gave Evans an opportunity, but his final effort went very wide of tho mark. The homesters made matters lively on the right, and Salisbury drove hard across the goal- mouth, but Johnny Jones shot a trifle too high, the ball skimming the crossbar. The Normalites would not be denied and they came again on the right, Hamer, whilst on the run, transferring to Davies, the latter in turn sending across to Ll. Jones, who was successfully tackled by the watchful Parry. Although the home team did not seem anxious to exert them- selves unduly, it was obvious that they were more than holding their own, howbeit the game was a singularly lifeless one, being utterly devoid of excit- ing incidents or even "coloured" by really good play. W.T. was not long ere he had his usual pop at goal, and when he did, Davies easily accounted for the shot, he having in the next minute to cileir 'j lie; shot from Johnny Rowlands. At the other end, Pal- freman. had a try, but Collier effected a capital clear- ance, performing a similar feat a little later as the result of a good shot by LI. Jones. Johnny Rowlands was all the time making desperate efforts to break through, but Cross proved to be a stumbling block and did not allow the home centre much liberty, though he was often beaten by that player's dashing play. Salisbury finished up a splendid run by sending in a magnificent centre, which seemed to be entering the corner of the net, but Davies sprang at the ball and managed to keep it out. Both efforts were de- servedly cheered. It was not long ere the visiting forwards appeared in front of Collier, and Evans receiving the ball, sent in a hot shot from short range, which the cus- todian dealt with in his ablest manner. One of the nicest bits of the match followed, the home forwards, ably fed by the halves, advancing in line, the ball being passed from one to the other rapidly, until at last it readied Johnny Rowlands, who let drive, mis- sing by inches. It was evident that success would not be long delayed, and this came as the result of some splendid play between Johnny Rowlands and his co-forwards, which enabled the former to get through and SCOHE A GOOD GOAL. Upon restarting, the visitors at once attacked, but Tom Jones cleared, and W.T. had another shot at goal, this also going astray; after which Johnny Row- lands secured and beat Cross. He did not hesitate a second, but kept on his course, and when tackled by Rowlands, he slipped the ball past that player only to see the former well backed up by his captain, who cleared with a huge punt. Hereabouts the visitors gave a glimpse of their true form, some really pretty play being seen on the part of their forwards, as a result of which Hamer tested Collier, who, however, refused to be beaten. He had been exerted to his utmost to save from Davies, relief being secured through the ball going into touch. The venue changed suddenly, and Salisbury had a tussle with Rowlands, tho visitor coming out on top, and sending well up the field, only to the the ball returned by Dick Eilis, Johnny Rowlands having hard luck with a lightning shot. Salisbury and W. J. Jones, by neat play, carried the war into the visitors' territory, and Johnny Rowlands got through, but when in the act of shooting he slipped, a corner resulting, which came to naught, J. Jones heading behind. Jim Evans easily checked a determined run on the visiting left, after which W. J. Jones shot over. Notwithstanding that they were aided by the wind, the Normals did not trouble the home defence greatly, Parry even having the audacity to join the forwards, and one occasion he seemed likely to score, but was knocked off the ball by Cross, who placed his for- wards in possession. I'arry, however, was able to get back in time to thwart their efforts. Salisbury and his partner were doing good work on the right., as was also Johnny in the centre, the latter having hard luck on several occasions. The visitors were at this stage fairly penned in their goalmouth, Davies having to be on the qui vive to save his charge, which he did several times, but following a melee in the penalty arc-a, Rowlands handled and the referee at once grant- ed a penalty. The kick was entrusted to Salisbury, who made no mistake, for though Davies touched the ball in its flight, it was all he could do. Some give and take play ensued, and when shortly afterwards the interval was reached, the Swifts were leading by two goals to nil The final result was Swifts 3, Normal College 0.

FRIARS SCHOOL v. RYDAL MOUNT. VICTORY FOR FRIARS. (By "Spectator"). Before a fairly big crowd of spectators, among whom was the Chairman of the Friars Governing Body, these old and keen rivals met on Saturday on the Friars ground, Bangor. Mr Allen lined up the teams as fonows:- Rydal: Robson; Howroyd and W. 0. Lancaster (captain); Wood, Barnsley and Baker; Westbrook, Elkinton, Lisle, Porter and Selby. Friars: O. Williams; A. D. Jones and T. Lloyd- Jones H. L. Williams (captain), Oooil and H. M. Owen; Coles, Llew. Jones, R. W. Lloyd-Jones, T. J. Griffiths and W. Thomas. Friars winning the toss elected to defend the lower goal. Play was very fast, but before the gamfe had been long in progress, Coles gaining possession, sent the ball across the goal, and Griffiths receiving sent in a tremendous shot which completely beat Rob- son. Shortly afterwards, Barnsley, the Rydal centre- half, from midfieid, sent in a shot which the Friars' custodian misjudged, thus placing the teams on level terms. Encouraged by this success the visitors pressed and forced two corners, which proved, however, fruit- less. Play was very even and both teams did much clever work. Barnsley, who was decidely the best man on the field, was a thorn in the side of the homesters. Lloyd-Jones now obtained possession and sent in a long shot which entered the far corner of the net. Nothing daunted by this reverse, Rydal came on, and as the result of a corner kick, Elkinton again brought the teams on level terms. From this point the visitors strove, their utmost to obtain the lead, but through the exertions of the Friars halves were unable to do so before the whistle called for half-tirhe, the score at the interval being: Friars School 2, Rydal Mount 2. Directly after resumption of play, T. J. Griffiths scored for Friars. Rydal returned to the attack, but unfortunately for them, their captain, Lancaster was obliged to retire, owing to injury. Although thus weakened, Rydal played very pluckily, and chiefly through Barnsley, were able to repel the Friars at- tack. Friirs continually pressed, and as the result of clever play on their left wing, T. J. Griffiths scored with a beautiful shot. Friars now forced some corners, one of which was converted by, Lloyd-Jones. The same player shortly afterwards added a sixth and last to the Friars score. Thus when time was called Friars were the victors by six goals to two.
RHYL COUNTY SCHOOL V. EPWORTH COLLEGE. The second match of the season between EpwOrth College and Rhyl County School was played on Satur- day on the latters' ground. The first game resulted in a win of 3—1 for the Rhyl boys and they hoped to repeat this performance, while tiie Collegiates were equally determined to reverse matters. The start was sensa- tional, for in the first few minutes Bertie Jones scored two good goals for Rhyl. At length Epworth attacked and managed to score a goal. However, the homesters practically monopolised the play and scored goal after goal in quick succession, while Epworth could only score one more. At half-time the score was S—2 in favour of Rhyl. Bert Jones had scored 4 goals, J. C. Davies, 2, and Howell Roberts and T. Ll. Jones one each for Rhyl. In the second half, the homesters had most of the and it was soon evident that they must meet much sterner opposition. Epworth exhibited form worthy of days gone by, and in consequence the spectators witnessed an interesting bout. Perhaps Rhyl always had a bit more of the play than their opponents, but each side scored once in this half. A very good game resulted in a win for Rhyl of nine goals to three.
LLECHID RESERVES V. BANGOR BOYS' BRIGADE. Lleehid Reserve 5 I Boys' Brigade 2 j The above match was played at Llanlleclud on Sat. urday. The homesters won the toss and soon pressed, George Williams scoring for them. Soon after Jack Williams increased their score with a splendid shot from a free-kick. The Brigade now forced matters and were awarded a penalty, but Roberts saved Johnson's shot at the expense of a corner, only to be beaten from the ensuing corner by Griff. Jonee. Half-time: Lleehid Reserve 2, Brigade 1. In the second half, th ehomesters had most of the play, Williams, in goal, for the visitors, saving well from Griff. Griffiths and W. J. Morris. After pressing continually, George Williams scored again for the homesters, and soon added another from a penalty, whilst from a corner, Bob Morris scored the fifth goal. Close on time the visitors were awarded a penalty. Walker was entrusted with the kick and made no mistake. Final score: Llechid Reserveo 5, Boys' Brigade 2.
NOTES AND COMMENTS. BANGOR JOTTINGS The game at Bangor on Saturday was on the whol. a poor one. In the first half Bangor could lit nothing right. » < < < The players, in almost every department miskiekeC a good deal, and thul were in danger of giving the game away. Holyhead showed very good form in the first haij, but in the second moiety Bangor were all over 'em. » Dick Jones, the city pivot, was slightly off colour,, and missed some good opportunities. » W. H. Jones and W. E. Jones made a fine left winft some of the former's runs being delightful to watch, and the latter's pots for goal were splendid. They both did useful work in spite of the attention of R. H. Owen and Owen Morgan. « w Harry Smith, on the right wing, showed much swiftness of foot, but his final efforts lacked direction. • » Ivor Thomas played well, the corner kicks be gave being perfect. < Of the halves, Hughie John was the strongest and he worked like a Trojan. < < Willie Jones and Dargie showed much tact and da&h in their play and fed the forwards well. » Coming to the backs, Hwfa's clearances were splendid. Parry also punted clear and they both tJ. lowed their opponents no rope. » ■» With such capable backs, McLachlan had practically a holiday. He ought to get rid of the ball sooner than he did on some occasions on Saturday. He might also have made a better effort at saving the Arst shot that beat him. » » H. Owen Jones, the Harbourmen's pivot, proved very dangerous. He is an useful player. • Lewis Jones and John Jones, on the left, played well, and at times showed some good combination, but by the end of the last half they could do nothing against Parry. • Hughie Brown and Owen Williams did not appear to understand each other so well as the left wing. • • • » Of the halves, R. J. Jones appearoi to be the mare useful, but R. H. Owen and Brown were responsible for much "breaking up" work. » » » Rowland Williams and Owen Morgan are strong play. ers. it » » Hugh Williams, the custodian, need feel no disgrace at being beaten six times. You played well, Hugh, and showed the form of a good custodian. » # # • Mr Slater's task was rather stiff, but he got through his work very well. •* » Again, Bangor Combination dropped two points, at Whitchurch this time. 2-0 was the score, which is not so bad in these days of 9-0, 6-0, etc. The game was exciting, fast, and brilliant game at Friars Ion Saturday, where the School team met Rydal Mount. Both teams have gained reputation* in football circles, Friars having won so far all their matches with a goal average of 37 against 3. The evenness of the play in the first half is obvious from the score, which at the interval was two all. » » In the second half, Rydal lost the services of their captain, who was injured. The Friars attack was met by a stubborn defend, in this half, but they managed to net four times, thus running out victors by six goals to two. For the losers, Robson in goal was in fine form, hi. jslearances being very good, and he oould not be blamed for the six shots which beat him. » The backs played excellently, and it was a grear pity Lancaster was obliged to retire. » The halves played an affective game, but of the three, Barnsley was the most conspicuous. On Ur day's play he was the best man on the field. The play of the forwards was clever and preolob, They were often very dangerous. Of the five, the oett tre forward was, I oonsider, the best, though O rest came close behind. » For the winners, 0. Williams was none too and might possibly have stopped the first shot thai beat him. e« » # The backs in the first half did not show their. form, but greatly improved as play went on. » With regard to the halves, their play was v.. clever and effective. All three played excellently n't it would be invidious to single out one as superior II the others. » # The five forwards played remarkably well, and Iw of late shown great improvement. Thomas and GIr.. fiths make a. clever, though diminutive wing. LiapAT Jones did well, though he might have infused m"" energy into his play, as also is the case with Jones. Coles played well, his centres being accurate. Well played, Friars! You deserved your win and your splendid record so far reads: 5 played, 5 wb3% and 43 go&ls against 5. I hope you will repeat IW performance at Rhyl against Epwortb College next urday. urday. (Continued on next; Pago.)

The skipper was hard pressed however, and his effort was parried by Stephen Jones, who cleared weakly, Parry sailing in and netting with a teriffic drive at close quarters. Still undaunted, Bagillt, heartily encouraged by a large crowd of supporters, who had accompanied them, played up pluckily, practically penning Colwyn Bay to their end thence till the close.

W. Jchxison, J. Jones, G. Lloyd; R. Jon-,4. 1) Vil- liams, Tom G. Edwards, Ted Jones, and Robert Salus- bu»/ (Capt). The County School captain won the toes, and elec- ted to kick up the slope. The game opened tniinly not a single incident of note occuring, until about ten minutes had elapsed. Still the Denbigh Juniora showed to better advantage than their opponents, R. Salusbury initiated a fine attack, but Hayward brought off two fine saves in succession, and just as the ball was going through Ivor Jones stepped into the breach, and cleared. Denbigh Juniors were now doing all the pressing. A good oentre was put in from the right, and Hayward rushed out to clear, but Salusbury rushed up and banged the goalkeeper and the ball to the net. This roused the scholars, and, assisted by a free kick, they brought considerable pressure to bear upon the Juniors' defence. During a raid on the school goal the Juniors were given a free-kick. This was taken by Lloyd,, who just grazed the bar with his shot. From a nice pass by Ted Jones, Salusbury scored the Juniors' seoond goal. At the other end Lewis put in a terrific shot, which Jones, the Juniors' goalkeeper, saved skilfully. During a visit to the school goal, R. Griffiths handled the ball in the penalty area. R. Godfrey Edwards was entrusted with the penalty, from which he scored. Half-time score: Denbigh Juniors 3, Denbigh County School 0. The opening exchanges of the second moiety were in favour of the School, and they gave Jonee an anxious time. In the meantime the Denbigh Juniors' backs were giving a fine exhibition, and so indeed were the half-backs. Nevertheless, the Juniors made another opening, and finding the School backs rather weak, Ted Jones scored with a grand shot. Then Lewis tried to get through on his own accord, but Oartwright fouled him. Subsequently, however, Lewis notched one for the School. R. Salusbury made a nice run on the left, but his centre went abegging. With only a few minutes to play Salusbury obtained pos- session and scored the fifth goal for the Denbigh Juniors. Final: Denbigh Juniors 5, Denbigh County School 1.
