FORESTERS v. NORTHWICH. The first tie between these clubs was played on November 3rd, at Northwich, but neither club scoring, according to the rules of the Welsh Foot- ball Association the next game was played on the Foresters' ground, Gwersyllt Park, on Saturday. The weather was very unfavourable for all out- door games, the rain coming down pretty freely half-an-hour before the time appointed for the game, but cleared up, and with the exception of one or two sharp showers, both spectators and players had not much to complain about. "The Northwich gentlemen are strangers to this district and are a very fast and promising team, but they do not make sufficient use of the passing" tactics. Of our local team, the Foresters, we have seen more, and were very much pleased to notice the great improvement they had made, and the captain Mr Clayton, may justly feel proud at their rapid progress; their defeats at Wrexham and Oswestry have not been without their results, and persever- ance nnd good old British stamina. have carried them on to victory. The following were the teams Northwich.—Glover (goal), J.Hitchen and W. Dobell (backs), F. Russell and J. Hughes (half-backs), Earlam. capt., G. Brooks, C. Hughes, L. Jones W. Lomas and Molyneux (forwards). Gwersyllt.—S. Lovatt (goal), R. Williams and G. Whitehouse (backs), T. H. Clayton and W. Tudor (half-backs), R. L. Jones and S. Powell (right wing), McIIutchon and S. Williams (left wing), C. Roberts and E. Williams (centres), The Foresters won the toss and chose the bottom ground with the wind slightly in their favour. The game was very even at the start, the slippery state of the ground telling against both teams, but after ten minutes' play the Foresters made an attack at their opponents' goal, a good fight taking place on the right side of it, when the ball was brought in front and sent through the goal, but was dis- puted on the ground that the ball had been behind the goal. The Northwich were the first to score, but before half-time was called the Foresters had placed two goals to their, credit, the game being, Foresters, two goals to one. After changing sides the ball was kept well in the visitors' quarters, Lovatt, the Foresters' goal-keeper, having very little to do, and although it was hard lines" for the home team very often, at the call of time the game stood, Foresters, four goals to one. The Foresters played well all round, but the play of S. Powell, S. Williams, and Roberta is deserving of special attention.
