Welsh Junior Cup Semi Final. LLAXIDLOES V. DRUIDS RESERVE. The semi-final tie of the Welsh Amateur Cup Com- petition between Llanidloes and the Druids Reserve was played at Welshpool, on Saturday, in boisterous weather. A large crowd lined the enclosure, and the teams were as follows :— Llanidloes.—Goal, A. Evans: backs, C. Smith and J. Morgan; halves. J. T. Jones, E. V. Davies, and D. Jones; forwards, W. H. Hughes, Tom Hughes, E. Jones, Hewitt, and J. Jones. Druids.-Goal, E. Wesley; backs, D. Owen and Fergusson; halves, Phillips, W. Edwards, and E. Powell; forwards, D. Edwards, W. Butler, D. Lloyd, E. T. Richards, and Wilfrid Butler. Referee, Mr R. T. Gough (Oswestry). The Druids secured considerable advantage by winning the toss for the wind blew a gale. A strong attack was mmediatley commenced on the Llanidloes goal, which Morgan repelled. A corner followed quickly, and D. Edwards kicked over the bar. Richards made a clever run along the left, and cen- tred beautifully, but the old Butler, not so active as in his younger days, failed to convert it. The Druids played hard, and assisted by the wind should have scored several times, but accurate combination was impossible. Llanidloes on the other hand defended stoutly, Morgan and Smith playing an excellent game, while the forwards occasionally became dangerous. Lloyd opened the scoring for the Druids after about 20 minutes play. Nothing further resulted, and at half-time the score was- Druids Reserve 1 Llanidloes 0 The Druids completely outclassed their opponents in the second half. Playing against the wind they were better able to study the ball, and their forwards at times played quite well. The Llanidloes front rank lack combination, and' their play was mast erratic. Richards was the most conspicuous member of hia side, and notched a second goal early on with a long ground shot, which the Llanidloes custodian should have kicked away. Richards again netted the ball from a scrimmage in front of goal. The Druids con- tinued to press hard, and their opponents rarely gave them cause for anxiety. A foul was given against Llanidloes, and the ball was dropped beautifully in front of goal, Richards, with an easy shot, which the custodian made no attempt to stop, registering the fourth goal. Many hard shots were put in which Evans saved well. Wilfred Butler from the outside left slung across excellent centres, and the Druids had hard lines on several occasions. No further scoring took place, and the end came with the result. Druids Reserve 4 j Llanidloes 0 i'
