MATCHES. LONDON \Yr.I.-H KKSKRVKS V. NORTHAMPTON INSTITUTE. — Play -d ->r • ;.e ground of the latter rt East Fitted.UM < S?I> 1. :ay. The Welsh at once attacked, ami Hugh" Roberts signalised his re- j appearance in the team by fearing the first goal, From the re->i rt Owen Owen raced away and put in a lovely centre, "shieh Jack Evans promptly headed into t'ne net. Northampton now attacked, but to no purpose, end shortly after Jack Evans; headed another of Owen Owen's centres just under the bar. The play continued in favour of the Welsh, but no fur; her scoring took place until after half-time. Then the visitors had matters all their own way and gave the Northampton defence a warm time of it. They penned their opponents in and fairly bombarded the home goal. Evans managed to place three more goals to his credit, while Lewis and Roberts obtained one each. The Northampton forwards made spasmodic efforts to break away, but were too well watched by the Welsh halves, and a rather one-sided game ended in favour of the Welsh by 8 goals to 0. Earlier in the season the W»dsh defeated the same eleven by 3 to 1. The following composed the Welsh team :— Goal, Ted Jenkins (Aberystwyth); backs, Harry' Jones (Brecon) and (Osweatry); half-backs, F Peurlios Owen ^Craven Arms), Di Jones (Llanid- loes), and J Williams (Aberdovey); forwards, Owen Owen (1) ngelley), J Lewis (Blaenau Festiniog), J Evans (Aberystwytli), Hugh Roberts (Holyhead), and II Hudson (Newtown). OSWESTRY UNITED v. CHIRK. A friend iy match between these teams took place at Oswestry on Saturday in cold weather, tee ground i.e'ii« in a greasy condition. Mr Setli Powell was t e referee, and the teams were as follows — OSWESTKT. Davies, goal A Lloyd and B Watkins, backs J Barratt, F Lenbow, and T Griffiths, half-backs; J Barratt, F Lenbow, and T Griffiths, half-backs; Weliings, M Watkins, D Davies, T Parry, and H Goodrich, forwards. CHIRK;. Goal, Tracer; backs, J Roberts and C Morris half-backs, S Meredith, R Morris, and M Morris; forwards, S Roberts, W Wynne, E James, W Eagavi, Ilnd G Williams. Davies started for Oswestry, but the ball v. ent along the visitors' left, Eagan being pulled ap by B Watkins. Mid-field play ensued from which Weliings got away and had a shct at Tracey who saved smartly, and play was transferred to the other end, a hot tupsle following in front of the home goal, and Lloyd relieved. Both ends were visited but neither side could score, the defence being good on both sides. In the second-half, Davies was called upon by James and saved well. The home- sters at last got away, and Parry centred, M Watkins putting the ball into the net out of Tracey's reach From the kick-off, G Williams looked like scoring but Davies ran out and cleared, this very likely averting the capture of the home goal. The visitors pressed but could not get through. Davies had several difficult shots to (leal with, but he managed them all, and was loudly cheered. The home forwards then put on pressure, the ball going along the left wing. Goodrich centred and Parry was given an opening, but he shot a trifle wide. In the next minute Parry got in and passed to Good- rich, who scored a beauty. The game was keenly contested to the end, and on a few occasions the home goal was hard pressed, but Davies was sound, and time arrived with the score Oswestry 2 goals, Chirk none. INTERNATIONAL TEST MATCH. A match, promoted by the Welsh Football Association, for the purpose of choosing players to represent Wales in the international match, took place at Chirk on Monday, when there was a fairly large gate. Teams :— WHITES. Goal, J Morris, Chirk; backs, T Knight, Llan- dudno, and Smart Arridge, Bangor and New Brighton balf-backs, S Meredith, Chirk, R Morris, Chirk, and W Harrison Wrexham right wing, W Meredith, Chirk and Manchester City, aud LI Griffiths, Wrexham; centre, R Jones, Bangor; left wing, T D Parry, Oswestry, and C Davies, Hereford. STRIPES.

Referee, Mr R T Gongh, Oswestry. Linesmen, Messrs R W Parry and A Thomas. The Whites had the best of the game, bnt credit is due to the StripvH for determinedly contesting a losing game. Without the aid of A E Watkins the Stripe* would have figured very badly indeed. The Whites, on the other hand, owe much of their • ucoeas to T D Parry, of Oswestry, who scored three of td.eir goais, and was instrumental in obtaining their fourth. Play hovered in midfield for some time after the start, and a foul was given against the Stripes, but A E Watkins broke away and took the ball down the wing, his centre not being taken advantage of. Gradually play came back, and it Jones shot a few inches beside the goal. This was followed by two more fusiladss at the Stripes' goal the first of which Griffiths dex- terously saved, and the second was given off-side. J Morris's energies were then called into action, and for a time play was confined to the Whites' goal. A determined rush was made on the Stripes' goal, and from a scrimmage a shot was sent in. Griffiths ran out to meet it, and before he could regain his place Parry shipped the ball into the net. A E Watkins put in some strong and well-directed shots, but there was no further scoring in the first half. The Whites had the game practically in their own hands in the second part, when they played with the wind. Giv.'iiths showed some smurt work. lie successfully withstood the bombardment until Parry put in a well-aimed shot, which W Meredith took on, and very nearly scored. 77hen play was nearly at mid-field Parry again sent the ball hurtling again through the air and with such good will that all Griffiths's efforts to stop it were futile. Disaster now fell thickly on the Stripes, and a in few minutes Parry had an easv opening, and with little difficulty scored again. After nalf-an-hour's inactivity Morris was given something to do, being called upon to stop & shot from A E Watkins, but the respite was of brief duration, for W Meredith put in the fifth goal for the Whites almost immediately afterwards. The Whites were, however, not destined to go goalless. Mark Watkins passed to his! brother, who crowned a brilliant run with an equally brilliant shot, which landed safety in the net. Result:- Whites, 5 goals Stripes, 1 goal.
