Ti e ball was set in motion about a qnarter-of-an- iiour after t>>e advertised time, some of the home- sters being late in «rriving. The Rangers p'ayed with the wind and slope in their favour and Brom. field got away, but, Humphreys relieved, a nice bit ,,f combined play following by the visitors, which ended in Hammond sending over the bar. A movement initiated by Mack and Hammond en- abled Coop r to foreo a corner, which resulted in another corner, but Smith cleared into touch. Albert Roberts negotiated a header from Cooper close in and the Rangers broke away, J Roberts crossing over to the right when Burgin relieved, the wind carrying the ball into touch. From the t hrow in Hodnet centred accurately, giving Goodrich an opening, but he missed the ball and Humphreys cleared A dangerous scrimmage took place in front of the visitors' goal and one of their number handling the ball a penalty kick was given the Hangers, but Fouikes saved this at the expense of a fruitless corner. The visitors thenprest.ed,and after a nice run Mack scored for the visitois about i en minutes from the start. Play be- came ,,il"Ul and the referee had to speak to one of the Rangers for a remark he mare use of. Garside sent iu a ripping hot, but Humphreys cleared from a rush "f playerA, Oswestry broke away and from Coopers' centre Mack scored number 2. Hodnet and Cartwright sailed away and a corner followed, but this was badly placed. The United Reserve went to the other end, ably backed up by the halves, but through dilatoriness a was lost, and the Rangers cleared, the right wing goettillg away and a clinking goal was scored. The game up to now had been very tame, but the success of the Rangers had the effect of rousing them and play improved a bit. Afte!' interesting and even play in which the defence on both sides shewed up, the visiting forwards got -.way nicely and from a pass from Cooper, which Davies (centre) missed, Mack added the third Rangers forced a fruitless corner and the interval arrived with the score :—Oswestry Reserve 3 goals Ellesmere 1 goal. The Rangers cleared tl couple nf rushes and Dawson saved a lew smart. shots. Murray broke away and Hum- phreys relieved. Hodnet was conspicuous for a clever bit of work and centred, Arthur Roberts sending over t.he bar. The Rang-ers had the upper hand for a few minutes but the visiting defence was sound and Hammond raced away, Smith relieving, but R Jones returned the hall with a grand shot which struck the crossbar, r he home defence ch ari' g. Oswestry then pressed and following good v. o k by Copper and Dd Davies (right) Mack score 1 No 4, and a minute later Dawson saved from Hammond. Arthur Roberts put in some useful work but the home forwards could not get away. Tueir goal had a narrow escape from a corner and Dawson saved twice in succession. Following a corner, Oswestry were rewarded with a penalty kick. This was taken by the Oswestry goalkeeper who scored. The Rangers pegged awav, but, there was lack of combination aid the visiting halves were too good for them. They'tried hard to god through and their halves and backs worked well and Dawson made some capita! saves. Though several corners fell to the visitors they could not improve on the score and seemed to take matters easy. The game was very slow up to time when the final was-Oswestry Reserve, 5 goals; Ellesmere, 1 goal.
