FOOTHALL. CHARLIE PARRY MOBBED. Angry scenes were witnessed on the Welsh- pool football ground on Friday at the com- bination fixture between Welshpool and Chirk, when the referee, Mr. Charles Parry, formerly a back for Everton and Aberyst- wyth, was mobbed, and, but for the pro- tection of the police and players, would pro- bably have been seriously, injured. Offside decisions against Welshpool and his dis- allowing two goals led to the hostile demon- strations, while his ordering off of one of the Welshpool men, who had had quite a stand-up fight with a Chirk player provoked the climax. The crowd surged around the referee, and he received numerous blows. Though the players and committee rallied round him, the deep crowd kept the police back from protecting him. Eventually the police and players escorted him to the pavilion, and on the way he wa^ pelted with clods. The police tried to clear th? mob. but they refused to move from the canal embankment adjoining the entrance, threatening to duck the referee if he ven- tured forth. Reinforcements of police even- tually guarded him through the mob, he beii)- considerablv hurt. It may be added that tli2 player ordered off the held bv the rcfel-pe Was Towyn Jones. of Aberystwyth, who was assisting Welsh- pool on this occasion. EASTER FOOTBALL. Apparently, interest in football was on the wan-e this Eastertide in Aberystwyth, judging from the meagre number of specta- tors who watched the games. On the morning of Good Friday, a match was played between Swansea Villa and Aber- ystwyth Wednesdays. The Wednesdays were the better team, but were not blessed with a score, the result being a goalless draw. ABERYSTWYTH v. HANDSWORTH. In the afternoon of the same day, the Town team played Handsworth, Birming- ham. Though having the sun in their faces, Aberystwyth were the first to score through Billy Jones, the Handsworth team equalising shortly afterwards. Unluckily for Aber- ystwyth E. Peake sprained his leg in the first forty-five and had to retire, Aberyst- wyth then having for three parts of the game to play only ten men. Were they at full strength all through, they might be expected to win. The match was a pleasant one to watch, the visitors, if anything, ex- celling the Seasiders in their combination, the latter being disorganised through Peake's injury, but they managed to keep their heads above water, the game ending in two goals divided between them. LIVERPOOL LEEK v. ABERYSTWYTH. This match was played on Saturday, Dickinson, of the U.C.W., taking E. Peake's place. Leek opened the score. Tommy Rees equalising for Aberystwyth. Evan Humph- ries was prominent in the rush which ended in Aberystwyth having a lead. There was no further scoring, the result beiiil,, Aber- ystwyth 2 goals, Handsworth, 1. BUILTH WELLS v. ABERYSTWYTH. A fairly good game was witnessed between these two teams on Easter Tuesday. At the interval the Wells were leading by three goals to two. Aberystwyth made a splendid rally towards the close, and succeeded in putting in three more goals in, thus winning by 5 goals to 3. Young Parsons who put in by 5 goals to 3. Young Parsons who put in the tnird goal for Aberystwyth, gave a good display, and will, it is anticipated, be able to render further help in succeeding seasons. t!1 WELSH AMATEUR CUP (FINAL). .E.,clusham White Stars One goal. Brymbo Victoria None. Ths final tie attracted a large crowd to Wrexham on Saturday. Both teams have had a successful season. The supporters of both sides were present. Brymbo won the toss, and had a strong wind behind them. The play was rather poor. and no goals were registered. In the second portion Esclusham •did a lot of pressing, and Pike opened tho scoring for them. This proved to be the only goal of the match, and the Stars con- soquently secured possession of the cup. I WELSH CUP FINAL. CHESTER BEATS CONNAHS QUAY. I At Wrexham on Easter Monday. A most exciting game was witnessed.

The victors quite" deserved their victory, though the Quay men gave them a very good same. Final Score— Goals. Chester 3 Connah s Quay 1
