FOOTBALL ASSOCIATION OF WALES. I WREXHAM V. XORTHWICH. The game, which wis played at Northwich on Octo- ber 25th, resulted in a draw, and the two clubs met in Wrexham on Saturday last, to play it off, commencing soon after three., and after some even play on both sides Price brought the ball down to the visitors' goal, and put it through the posts. The goal was not allowed, however, as "hands" had been previously called.. The Northwich team then played with great determination, and the home team's goal was in jeopardy more than once. Up to half time neither side had scored, but a short time afterwards Wrexham got a free kick for hands within a few yards of their opponents' goal. A struggle ensued, which the defenders got the best of. Just within five minutes of time being called T. Jones sent the ball well up to the Northwich goal; one of their backs just touched it, and Price put it through the posts and scored a goal. The visitors disputed the goal on the ground that the ball had been previously handled by one of the Wrexham men, but as the referee did not see it, and the whistle had not been blown, the goal was allowed. An effort was made by the visitors to retrieve their fortunes, but although they succeeded in getting the ball up to the mouth of the Wrexham goal, Davies stopped it from going further, and the game ended in favour of the home eleven by one goal to none. A more wretched afternoon for out-door sport of any kind could scarcely have been obtained, but this did not prevent a considerable number from watching the game. Both sides played extremely well, and struggled hard, and although the visitors' goal-keeper had a little more to do than his confrere, the game on the whole was very even. The names of the players were TTrexltaiii. -Goal, J. Davies; backs, H. Edwards and T. Jones; half-backs, E. A. Cross and F. Owen; riht side, T. Boden and T. Hughes; left side, J. Lloyd and J.

The tie between these clubs was played on the ground of the latter, on Saturday last, in miserable weather. Play commenced at three o'clock, and in fifteen minutes a goal was secured by A. Richards for the Service. No furthur score was obtained until some twenty minutes after half time, when a scrimmage took place in front of the Service goal, and the ball was forced through. This equalised the score, and notwithstanding the vigorous efforts of both sides, no more goals were got, and the game was thus left drawn. Foresters. -Goal, S. Davies; backs, R. Williams and S.

RHYL.—On Saturday last the Rhyl team and the Ruthin first eleven had an hour's contest, resulting in three goals for Ruthin to none.
