FOOTBALL. (Continuation from 4th Page.) COLWYN BAY CLIPPINGS. One is tempted to say that the Colwyn Bay team merited a defeat on Saturday. They never appeared to enter into their work seriously; at any rate their operations were never characterised by that method which marked their display against Llanrwst on the previous Saturday. Bagillt drove them the whole way and they never isserted the superiority one would have inferred from their two goal lead. The forwards were obviously weak. If all five men had never seen one another on a football field be- fore they would have acted quite as much in con- cert. Their passing was execrable, and with very few exceptions thiir attacks were unusually lifeless. Paradoxically enough, they all worked hard, but their energy was ill-directed, so that the net result was much the same. Both wing men were weak-hearted the inside right was unreliable, and the inside left was moody. McCann was also anything but himself. » Otherwise the team were strong enough. Hallwood, Tonkin and Williams at the rear played exceptionally fine football, and the halves-partie-ularly Ned Grif- fiths, who on the day's play, was the best half-back on the ground-worked industriously and to good pur. pose. « The visitors' strength lay where the home side were w cakes t-fo rward. Evans and Norman Jones on the ight wing were exceedingly smart, and Dick Itow- laiids and "E.O. did well to frustrate their in- numerable rushes. Roberts was somewhat slow at centre, and he lost at least three goals on that ac. count. Lloyd and Davies, though less prominent on the left, nevertheless gave a meritorious display. It takes a courageous man to face Ned Griffiths in his Saturday's mood, but Davies gave as much as he got. The quintette lacked the power t-o finish off their werk property. Norman Jones missed two golden op- portunities. » The halves' were a useful trio, but the backs were good only at intervals. Stanley did much very well, but he controlled the ball better than his temper at times, as Jack Owen will agree. « « « « Stanley Hughes, the courageous little man, who scored four times against Llanrwst on Saturday week, left Colwyn Bay for the Midlands on Saturday. The sCRsiders I could have done with his help against Bagillt.
