I The Oswestry United Reserve had their neigh- bours, Whittington, as opponents in the second round of this competition, ana the match was played nt Oswestry on Saturday in boisterous weather which considerably interfered with play. Mr A Thomas, Kaabon, had charge of the teams which were as follows: — OSWESTRY RESERVE. Goal, Powell; backs, Emery, and David Davies; half-backs, Marshall, Denny, and R Morris; for- ards, Cooper, Tyley, W Morris, Watkin, and Hammond. WHITTINGTON. Gfi,t], Gi-iTidl(-v; backs, W Owen and Edwards; halt-backs, J Youens, Wilkinson, and J Uicnards forwards, Pa.yne, H Youens, J Davies, R Kichards, and II Hales. Oswestry won tl e toss and played with the wind in their favour. From the centre kick, Denny placed the ball well down and the home forwards got away, W Morris giving to Cooper whose shot was carried by the wind. The home team again worked their way down nicely and W Morris passed across to Hammond who planted a long shot right uuder the bar, and Grindley very cleverly fisted the ball away, Edwards then putting the ball out. The visitors transferred piay, Payne being prom- inent for a swift run, but hie shot against the wind was weak and inaccurate. The hall was soon at the other end and the visiting defence had to defend. A corner was forced but Tyley placed this wide. The villagers were again at the other end and r.yr:e put in an obliqu" 5ohot. which Hales missed and a t!pi,ei.did OppUI: uai, was lost. In thejnext minute Hales tot aW¡¡V on his own, and not being tackied, he got close in when Emery dispossessed him ar.d play went the other way. Ed wnrds headed away ;L l ard shot from !'■ almond, but Walkin y-'cnred and turning the in ncm a difficult p.>siti in missed by inches only. Wnittlngton ind •iis:»d In passing and sooij gofcinto th", borne territory, but hlniery and 1) Davies were sound. v iik-iii ilie upper hand and Grindley was repeatedly c;.Med upon. Watkins put in a grand shot and Grindley cr-ught the ball but dropped it near Cooper who placed in the net. As the result of good wo'k by home halves, the visitors were drawn ba -k. W Morii- shot in and grandly saved, and in the next minute he snved a spiendid from R Mon is, by ¥:V¡Il a corner which proved fruitless. From another <■> r>vr to Oswestry, Tyley nearly scoied. R M was in good form a:.d stopped the visitor- in mid-field, folic wing which the Reset vo rushed towaida goal and one of the V, liituugton bucks in clearing struck thp cross bar of his own goal. The ball re- bounded and was rushed over the line. lu the next miouie R Watkin planted the hull on the crossbar. A free kick to Whittington re ioved the pressure, and the ball travelled along the right, but R Morris relieve: By a series of throwa-iu the villagers got near the homo goal, bur. could not b"at the defence. A couple of corners to Oi.ves'rv and a ireo kick on the 12 yards line brought no advantage, Edwards, Owen, and Grindley being pretty safe. At, the interval the score was I- -0 i,i favour of 08- westry. On resinning, Wbhri.-r: aided by the ••■tiofig wind gav-j! tiii- ii-tfie sono- work r,) were < .-i i. uvvay.
