FOOTBALL MONTGOMERY AND DISTRICT LEAGUE. ABERYSTWYTH v. TOWYN. Towyn 3 goals. Aberystwyth 0 SUlldilanu Park! This euphonious name will conjure up a woeful bye-gone in the minds of the eleven persons who did duty for the University town on Saturday last. A little etymology would not be out of place here. Unless we are hopelessly mistaken, Sandiland Park has been so called because of the sandy nature of that piece of ground, where the muddied oafs' ot Towyn indulge in their little games. But if Kipling came to Towyn, or better still, if he were a native of that storm-swept place, and had never seen any footballers beyond its confines, he would have no occasion to label this tribe in such an execrable manner as he did, for the soil of Sandiland Park is possessed of such properties that it quickly recovero it- self, and is nearly ahvays in the best of conditions. If a heavy roller could be passed over it. it being uneven. almost in every part, it would become quite an ideal ground. There was a strong wind blowing the length of the field on Saturday, and having advantage of this in the first half, Towyn managed to put in three goals. That the first was put through his own net by Tommy Rees, the Aberystwytli captain, and the third scored from a penalty, does not in the least detract from the merits of the home team's victory, for in the second "forty- five" they were several times within an ace of scoring, the post, on one occasion, being the only impediment to Harry Jones finding the net with a terrific shot. J. D. Jonet, after previously having struck the post, was the scorer of Towyn's second goal, and Harry Jones the one who registered the penalty. Green, it was who had handled in the area of woe, having succumbed to a sore temptation. When Tommy Rees tapped the ball through hs own goal, he evidently meant to put it to bis custodian for the [ latter to fclear. This season, an unique I thing in his football career, for he has not been guilty of it before, a penalty has been awarded against him and he has put the ball through his own net. But he is an ex- cellent player, and an excellent sportsman, and it will be a long time in the annals of the Aberystwyth Club before a coin peer of his will be found. In the absence of Man- sell Jenkins, he played asr right back on Saturday, and acquitted himself well. There were further changes in the visiting team, Jack Jones and Billy Jones, who have both appeared in the forward line earLer in the season, filling the right half and left half positions respectively. The forward line from left to right ri!d thusWright, Bert Jones, Albert Lloyd, Johnnie Jones., J. Warrington. Changed every week, as the team is, not only in personnel, but posi- tions also exchanged, it has had no time to settle down, and until this consummation is attained, its star will not be in the as- cendant. These changed are detrimental, I but they are also necessary, for it is only by cons-derable experimenting, shall the ( C.ub obtain the survival of the fittest. The Towyn defenders were too experienced men to let the light forward brigade of the visitors do much harm. Gladstone Davies and Pryce Evans played finely, the latter scarcely making a mistake. Dr. Davies is addicted to kissing the earth, but lie can run surpassingly well, and can sometimes miss his kick in an equally delightful manner. The pick of the Town quintet were Harry Jones and Harry Edwards. It was a vig- orous game, and Towyn were good value for another three goals. The teams< were:— Aberystwyth: J D. Davies; O. Green, T. W. Rees (capt.); Billy Jones, Evan Jones, Jack Jones; Wright, Bert Jones, Albert Lloyd. Johnnie Jone £ and Warrington. Towyn: Lewis Jones; Tom Jones, Pryce Evans: Dr. Davies, Gladstone Davies, E. O. Roberta; Henry Edwards, J. D. Jones, Evan Jones, G. E/Morris, and Harry Jones, l YSTWYTH RANGERS v. STANLEY ROVERS. There was some tall scoring in football on Saturday, Sunderland and Ystwyth Rangers alone being responsible for 15 goals while only two gpals were scored against them. The former defeated Newcastle United, "th" cocks o' the North," by 9 goals to one, while the Rangers beat the Rovers by 6 goals to one. The latter encounter was a cup-tie in the Aberystwyth and District Junior Cup Competition. U.C.W v .NEWTOWN NORTH END. These teams met each other at Newtown on Saturday, when- the visitors were vic- torious- by 2 goals to 1. The Collegians have been doing well in recent matches. U.C.W. v LAMPETER. Lampeter Town journeyed to Aberystwyth on Wednesday to play the College fifteen. The game resulted in a win for the Col- legians by four tries to nil. The scorers t were: D. L. Williams, D. J. Parry, Bill Wil- liams, and W. A. Burns. The first named made a welcome re-appearance in the ranks of the College after his recent injury. Score: U.C.W. 4 tries; Lampeter, nil. 'WELSH AMATEUR CUP. The draw for the second round was miade at Wrexham on Wednesday night as fol- lows: Carnarvon v. Conway, Llandudno v. Denbigh, Burntwood or Buckley Engineers v Stars, Druids or Cefn v.
