I Klvixr.T. X.2\t'J\V:\ f<,l1c-l<l lP) tLe:l' 0(Jd \vorl.: on 1Vl1it when thev had slightly the best of the draw with Dolgelley, as the scores -Newtown 124, Dolgelley 116 for 9 wickets— testify, with a most creditable victory over Welshpool. The Welshpool players threw the match right away. Fancy six men not able to make a run each, which would have saved them from defeat. Of course the bow !ers on the other side had something to say abuuc this, bnt the batting of the tail end WDS dreadfully weak. A few straight bats would have donf the trick easily. J. H. Addie was badly run one by Parry at the tension poiLt of the game. After this the Newtown men played up desperately, Binns towards the end bowling very well, and just snatched the match out of the lire. W. F. Richards and F. R. Hal! (21 each) batted in good form for the winners. Old Tallis bowled capitally, and took 4 wickets for 15. Two of the Welshpool were crippled early. Parry in stopping a hard return hurt his hand and could not bowl, ami J. H. Addie dislocated a finger joint. Welshpool faced the total of 74 with confidence, and old Tallis and D. R. Jones got well on the way before they were parted. Both played the right game 011 the wicket, though it appeared risky. W. Jcnes, FTart, and Parry afso Ptrry also did well, and the game was well in hand fo- the loss of 5 wickets. Then Addie was run out and the collide took place. All out. tor 71—just 3 behind. There was some good fielding on-Doth sides, and some of the other sort. Hiles brought off a grand catch, which well atoned for his bad Jilek in batting. Bums too brought off a j-ood one. The Rock Ferry telun visited Shrewsbury or Wednesday, and played the famous School a good game, the latter winning by 16 runs. Mr. H. West-by, son of Capt. Westby. Welshpool, plaved a kiihiant game, making the magnificent score of 60 for his side. The R.W.W. team were not so successful as their rival townsmen. They had a much hardev task on, and although they failed badly in batting their bowl- ing deserve credit for getting such a strong batting team as Oswestry all out for 78. It was R. T. Gough's day, and he was on the wicket so well that the Newtown men could do nothing with him, and all were out for 33. Oswestry started badly, bnt F. How and F. J. Gough, with i9 and 20 respec- tively batted well, and with several useful little additions the score gradually rose to 78. A. W. Pryce-Jones was far away the most successful bow;er for R.W.W., and took eight wickets for 37. Very good work. In the second innings of the R.vY.W. they only succeeded in patting 41 together -A. W. Pryce-Jones ten of these. Gough and Sabine did the truudling this time and both-were successful. Oswestry in obtaining the two runs necessary for a win lost two good wickets. H. T. Gouyh's bowling in the whole match was excellent. Here is the analysis, 13 wickets for 28 runs. A pleasant and capitally contested game between Llanvmynech and Oswestry A ended in a draw, in favour of which ever side wishes to claim it. As Sir Roger de Coverley said much may be said on both sides." The villagers took first innings and ran up 35. Pugh and Rees started well and scored 57 before Aston found Pugh's wicket. R. Morris (13) was the only other batsman to show much form. The ground was very fiery and dangerous, and Pugh was badly hurt on the elbow and head. H. Aston was the most successful bowler for Oswes- try. He did much better after he moderated his pace, and B. Gough would do well to follow suit. Oswestry made none too good a start, though B. Gough hit well for 15, and it seemed all over with them when G. Whitfield went in. He played well and confidently, and if he could have had proper assistance from his companions he would have won the match. In his score of 33 not not, were some capital drives—one right out of the field was a very fine one. Powell was absent, and when the last man went in the umpire called last over. G. E. Robinson had the ball and it seemed cdds on the wicket being taken, but lucidly for the batsmen all the balls just cleared the bails, and the game was saved with the score standing at 80. G. E. Robin- son though quite out of practice bowled very well, and the fielding of Coleman was excellent all through. Portmadoc on Saturday went to Aberystwyth to try their luck against the Collegians. The "latter kept up their good batting form, and when the last wicket fell the score was 103. E. C. Hobbs was top scorer with a beautifully played 38, made in an hour. He received useful help from A. Evans 17, E. N. Jones 14, F. W. Keeble 11, and M. White 10. Griffiths bowled very well for the visitors. The highest score for Portmadoc was the 13 of Fielden, but the whole of the players batted with commend- able steadiness and were evidently bent on playing out time. In this, however, they failed as all were disposed of 10 minutes before time. E. N. Jones took five wickets for 22. Overton in another close match beat the Elles- juere College masters by seven runs. C. D. Penn played well for the losers and got 24 runs. Oswestry Grammar School in an exciting match against Chirk just managed to win by one run. The bowling on both sides was good and accounts for the small scores-39 and 40. In First Class Cricket huge scores are still the order of the day. Yorkshire put on 450 against Nottingham, Brown again batting well for 107. He is now creeping up to the top of the tabie in the averages. The Australians have not yet lost a match and are playing in such a way as to point to C.ose finishes when the test matches come on. FIRST-CLASS AVERAGES. Calculated to Saturday May, 30th inclusive.
