(O) Colwyn Bay v. Llandudno Amateurs. A WELL-CONTESTED GAME. Played at Colwyn Bay on Saturday last, be- fore a good number of spectators. The weather Was all that could be desired, and up to a Quarter of an hour before time a splendid game Was witnessed. Colwyn Bay:—Williams, goal; Allen and J. Williams, backs; E. 0. Williams, Downes, and Griffiths, half-backs R. Jones, W. Jones, Parry, Reckless, and McCann, forwards. Llandud- nO:-Hughes, goal; J. Lunt and J. Williams, '^acks; Jacob Williams, G. Davies, and Parry, half-backs; Jones, H. Williams, Humphreys, Cartwright, and D. Griffiths, forwards. ¡ The visitors won the toss, and decided to play WIth the wind in their favour. Parry started the ball for Colwyn Bay, facing the college goal, and mid-field play followed, until the visitors' left gained possession. Jones scored the first goal with a grand shot, which gave the home Custodian no chance. The Bayites, from the re-start, immediately made tracks for the Llan- dudno goal, Bob Jones sending across from near ^e touchline, leaving Parry with a clear shot, about which he made no mistake, and equalised score. End-to-end play was the order for Some time, until the Bay were awarded1 a free- ^■c"k in midfield. An opportunity for putting y 11 the home side ahead was missed by Reckless, Whilst in a good position for scoring. A foul against Bob Jones gave the visitors an opening. Williams in goal made a poor attempt to ^ear a long, low shot, and Llandudno rushed heir second goal through. Even play followed. O. Williams sent in a regular "daisy-cutter," ich. came very near equalising1 for the Molesters. A good run by the visiting for- wards ended in off-side. The Bay men then went to the other end, and were awarded a corner, which proved abortive. E. O. Williams ^as again applauded for a splendid shot, that ,a grazed the outside of the crossbar. Faulty play *jn the part of J. Williams at back let the Llan- udno men in, and Griffiths scored their third ?0a^ Encouraged by this success, the visitors ^ePt up the pressure, and Cartwright, having eaten both of the home backs, seemed certain add another goal, but T. Williams rushed for- f'td, and splendidly saved his charge. A free- ick for the homesters on the half-way line was *aken by E. Allen. Parry neatly headed th bal1 in front of goal, and Reckless banged e leather into the net, thus making number for the Bay. Shortly after, McCann gairied possession, and during a scrimmage in th°n* ^itors' goal netted the ball, but e referee awarded a penalty for the Bay, which successfully placed by McCann. The Jostle sounded for half-time with the score eadiag: Llandudno, 3; Colwyn Bay, 3. With the wind behind them, Colwyn Bay went to the visitors' goal, and Parry put the ball s' over the crossbar. Two corner kicks fell to the Bay, but nothing resulted, and a good run down left the Llandudno forwards with a goal practically at their mercy, but the leather went flying over the top. Willie Jones was conspicu- ous for a clever sprint up the left wing, and passed to Bob Jones, the ball eventually going behind. From a corner taken by Ned Griffiths, McCann headed well, and Reckless gave his side the lead. Play was all in the Llandudno half just now, and McCann scored the fifth goal for Colwyn Bay with a grand, long shot, which went high up in the net. From the kick-off, Llandudno set about their work with more de- termination, and Jones, on the left wing, negoti- ated a run down, passing right across to Grif- fiths, who easily converted the effort into a goal. The pressure was kept up for some time by the visitors, but with no further addition to the score. The supporters of Colwyn Bay were apparently responsible for a change which very soon came over the game. The home forwards worked their way up the field, and from a good pass by W. Jones, McCann scored the sixth goal for the Bay. From a "throw-up," caused by E. Allen col- liding with Cartwright, Bob Jones effected a good run up the left wing, and passed to Parry, who gave to Reckless, but the goal was lost through dallying too long with the ball. A free- kick in midfield against G. Davies for fouling Downes gave the Bayites a further chance. McCann shot well in front of goal, and Parry had no difficulty in lifting number seven into the net. This proved the last of the scoring but Llandudno still made occasional rushes, and Griffiths on the right came very near netting, but, unfortunately, over-ran the ball, just on the point of shooting. The last quarter of an hour both teams played very indifferently. Final:- Colwyn Bay, 7; Llandudno, 4.
Conway v. Carnarvon. VISITORS DEFEATED, BUT NOT DIS- GRACED. IN a league encounter the Conway eleven were entertained at Carnarvon on Saturday. De- lightful weather prevailed, and about 400 people attended to witness the match. The visitors turned out their best side, but a little re-arrangement of positions would have been of good effect. In the forward line, for instance, Matthews ought to do better playing inside, while J. R. Jones would do well as his substitute at centre. 'On the Carnarvon side some of the old faces were observed, and welcomed. "Li" Jones, Tom Roberts, and W. Morris were of the number, and, in truth, it might be said there is much spirit "in the old dogs yet." "Li" was in particularly good form, and one of the fea- tures of the game was the admirable manner in which he and his brother veteran, Tom Roberts, kept things going on their wing. One could not help regretting that some of their colleagues and opponents did not see fit to emulate their smart tactics. It should be added that the homesters played but nine men during the best part of the first half of the game, Oldfield making his appear- ance within a few minutes of "lemon time." Carnarvon kicked off, Conway playing from the town end with a bright sun in their faces. At the outset the visitors got away with a burst, on the initiative of Wilson, but J. T. Williams defended splendidly, relief being brought about at a critical juncture. Then, "Li" and Tom Roberts secured, and between them they placed the visitors on the defence. "Li" centred beau- tifully twice in succession, and each time Tom Jones effected a clearance when a score seemed unavoidable. Again the visitors assumed the upper hand, that promising young winger, Wilson, once more leading the van. In con- junction with Ben Evans, he dribbled the leather well out of harm's way. "Cooper" received, and transfered to Matthews, but the latter over- reached himself, and a golden opportunity was lost. With a long kick from Williams, who was playing back alone, the venue was once more changed, midfield being for the next ten minutes the scene of some stiff work on both sides. Eventually, the Carnarvon left wing got into motion, and little Llew. Parry was called upon to handle the leather. "Li" was within reach, and he levelled a magnificent shot, which struck the net a few inches to the wrong side. From the kick out, Ellis worked his way clear, and gave up to Ellis Roberts, between whom and his vis a vis on the opposite wing there was some pretty footwork. Afterwards, the Conwayites transferred to Tom Edwards, who all but suc- ceeded in doing the needful. Thence, until half-time, ends were changed rapidly, Wilson, J. R. Jones, and Roberts being amongst the prominent Conway forwards. The former was a tower of strength for his side, and despite the weight of his opponent on the oppos- ing wing he repeatedly made some excellent openings, but there was a keen defence by the homesters, while the weakness in his own centre- man was palpable. Carnarvon, on the other hand, had a splendid shot-in with Morris. A Blank CJanJer. At half-time the score sheet was blank-a revelation to some pessimistic followers of the visiting eleven. Directly on the re-start, the "Canaries" as- sumed the aggressive, "Li" all the while lead- ing the van. From a scramble in front of the posts, Morris secured, and sent in a pretty shot, which gave Llew. Parry no earthly chance. Operations were afterwards continued for a lengthy period in the vicinity of the half-way line, the visitors, though evidently disheartened somewhat, stubbornly contesting what was ap- parently another big effort to repeat the tactics which had previously been so successful. Fif- teen minutes had passed by when Williamson netted the second point with the prettiest shot of the day. Carnarvon kept up a warm attack. Tom and George Jones defended bravely against heavy odds. The homesters lost two good opportuni- ties through Parry's selfishness. "Li" ought also to have centred when he tried a shot at an almost impossible angle. Ellis, in due course, relieved the pressure, but the visitors' incursion to the other end was short-lived. "Cooper" mulled badly, and Williams was able to end a sharp rally with a long kick. After some fur- ther midfield work, "Li" got his wing into ac- tion, the winger himself centreing with his usual good judgment. Parry received, and sent in a warm shot, which struck the upright. From the rebound, however, he succeeded in beating his namesake in the net with a low, swift shot from a position about fifteen yards outside the net. The visitors then had their turn, and the home goalkeeper was forced to concede a corner. The flag-kick went wide, and Hughes and Oldfield- who,. despite his recent illness, was working like a Trojan—.got away on the far side. It was obvious that the visitors were now suffering materially from their lack of weight. Another fine attempt by E. Parry was cleverly saved by Tom Jones. A long kick by the latter sent play down near the centre of the field. Then Ben Evans obtained the leather, and transferred to Wilson. In turn, the winger gave up to rJlis Roberts, and, amidst the hearty plaudits of his supporters, Roberts sent his side one up, with a long shot at a somewhat difficult angle. Imme- diately on resuming play, however, the visitors' end suffered a warm experience, Parry subse- quently putting in the fourth shot for the home- sters from a melee at the goal mouth. Shortly afterwards time was called. The final scores were: Carnarvon, 4 goals; Conway, i goal—a result of which the youths from the ancient borough have every reason to be proud. The Conway team was as follows :-Llew. Parry, goal; George Jones and Tom Jones, backs; Shem Jones, T. Edwards, and O. Ellis, halves; Ellis Roberts, J. R. Jones, J. Matthews, Ben Evans, and Wilson, forwards. Referee, Mr Roberts, Llandudno. Cup Presenting. After the match, players and spectators gath- ered round the grand stand, where Mr R. W. I Parry, acting as president of the North WTales Coast Association, in a short, appropriate speech, formally presented Mr Menzies (on be- half of the club) with Mr Russell's champion- ship silver cup, which the Carnarvon men won last year. Mr Menzies responded in a happy vein, and duly handed over the trophy to W. Hughes, the captain of the club. The proceedings were short, but of a very en- thusiastic character.
Portmadoc v. Lia-ilberis. TROUNCING OF THE QUARRYMEN. The Quarrym-en paid their return visit on Saturday to Portmado.c, after being: defeated on the previous Saturday at Llanberis by 3 goals to nil. Hopes had been entertained by the vdsuors that .the match of the previous Saturday would, to some extent, be avenged; but the task was admittedly a heavy one, as, indeed, all the other League teams will find to their cost. In great contrast to the weather of the previous Saturday at Lianberis1, the climatic conditions of last Saturday were delightfully fine, thus setting off to the best advantage the splendidly appointed ground on "The Traeth." -ere was a good crowd. of exceedingly well-behaved spectators, and Mr D. LI. Hughes, the genial secretary, is happy in having so good a number of willing workers around him, assisting in the comfort of those present. Accommodation was even found for the pressmen, and s'ucli a worthy example might well be followed by other clubs on the Coast. Mr W. Jones, of Llanrwsit, offi- ciated for the first time since his appointment as referee. The following were the teams: Portmadoc: Goal, Evan Davies; backs, A. Hughes, and- R. Jones (captain); halves, Roberts, J. R. Jones, and R. Jones; forwards, R. D. Roberts, Mossley, Owen Jones, W. M. Jones, and R. Ll. Jones. Llanberis: -Goal, Hugh P. Williams; backs, E. R. Owen; R. Lloyd Hughes; halves, Owen Morris, Dicky Roberts-, R. C. Thomas; forwards, E. Lloyd Bughes, W. R. Thomas, E. H. Jones, J. W. Roberts, and R. D. Evans. The Portmen played with the sun behind them, and at o-n-ce shewed vigour and determin- ation, a good rush for goal being effectively re- pelled by E. R. Owen, who returned well up the field. R. Jones, the home half-back, judicious- ly fed the right wing, and a good run was made, the ball being banged over to the right, where Mossley sent again to R. Ll. Jones, who in his final attempt shot wide. R. Jones, the half- back, was again cOllspiÓous by breaking up a rush and by punting' well into the forwards. A spell of pressure by the Portmen culminated in a corner being conceded by the Quarrymen, and R. D. Roberts placed beautifully, but the visi- tors cleared the goal from danger. The visitors essayed a spurt, but their methods lacked co- hesion, with the result that their efforts were now and again of a scrambling order. A good attempt by Mossley with a "header" just went over the bar. The Portmen, by capital work were gradually asserting their superiority, and a pass by Mossley to R. D. Roberts, ended in the latter shooting over the bar. Another shot by the same player was weakly cleared by Williams, and Owen Jones netted the ball; the point, however, being; disallowed, for being, in the referee's opinion, "offside." The Portmen were now as busy as bees, .and the natty little Mossley sending in a terrific shot to Williams, the latter was knocked over by the ball, and it rolled off him into the net. Rowland Jones was. then very conspicuous with good tackling. In- deed, the tactics of his side generally were deci- dedly clever. After being well served, R. Ll. Jones, again shot wide. This excellent player evidently had not yet got into his usual stride. The ball was banged across the- visitors' goal time after time, and it is marvellous how a downfall wasesoaped, a final effort by R. D. Roberts seeing the ball whiz through the air like "greased lightning." A well-conceived movement a moment later by Mossley and R. D. Roberts was cleverly checked by Owen Morris and E. R. Owen, with the result that the visitors got a footing in the. home. territory. Some sharp, exchanges occurred, and Lianberis. ought to have scored. A smart shot by E. Lloyd Hughes being sent flying over the- bar. Some very vigorous tackling on both sides fol- lowed, and a clinking shot across the goal by R. Lloyd Jones resulted in a corner, the out- come of this being a second goal notched by W. M. Jones for Portmadoc. Soon afterwards Owen Jones scored the third goal—a regular beauty. W. Lloyd Jones re-started the game, and ere long E. Lloyd Hughes, R. D. Evans, and E. H. Jones combined, and a shot to Davies was sent in for the first time, and cleared. Whilst trying to get away quickly, Mossley fell on the ball, but was up in a trice. R. Jones gave 'ét good pass from the left, but Mos-slev failed to convert. Two corners to the Portmen were not of much avail until Owen Jones drib- bled well, and scored the fourth goal with a capital shot. Half-time: Portmadoc, 4; Llanberis, o. Resuming, the Portmen pressed at once., and Bob Jones shot over. Mossley next tamely shot wide, and then J. R. Jones shot over the bar. Mossley, again gaining possession, had hard lines with a good shot. During this time the defence of Llanberis was thoroughly tested, and for a time right well did R. Lloyd Hughes and E. R. Owen withstand the ordeal. From a fine pass, however, by R. Lloyd Jones, Mossley, with a magnificent Shot, scored the fifth goal. After' this, Llanberis broke away, and forced a corner. A grand run by R. D. Roberts and Mossley was then made, and a rasping shot sent to Williams, who smartly cleared. Llan- berisshowed up better for a short time, but could make no real headway. Mossley was soon testing Williams again with a "rouser," which was cleverly saved. Still, the ball hov- ered around him, it dancing on the heads of a host of players, and creating intense excitement as it bobbled from one player's cranium to another. Here the pressure of the Portmen was very great, and a flying shot by R. D. Roberts was just saved on the post by Williams. A moment later, Mosley just missed a fine pass across goal. The bombardment of the visitors' citadel became still keener, and in the great pressure E. R. Owen handled, the penalty being taken by J. R. Jones, who scored the sixth goal. Shortly after this, Owen Jones scored the seventh, and from a pass by R. Lloyd Jones, W. M. Jones scored the eighth point. Piling on the agony, R. Lloyd Jones, with a beautiful swift grounder, scored once more. Shots from all positions were now peppering Williams,who repeatedly saved, eliciting the warm admiration of the onlookers. The visitors' humiliation wa.s shortly afterwards crowned by Owen Jones heading .the tenth goal from a corner, the game ending Portmadoc, 10; Lianberis, o.
-0- Llannvst v. Rhyl Athletic. (North Wales Coast League.) The Roosters enjoyed the privilege of playing their second ieague match at G\vydyr Park, lhe recently-trounced Rhyl Athletic team being the visitors. An indifferent game, and sadly lacking in merit, was seen, the home lol running out winners by 5 goals tu 2,
o- Oswe try United v. KhyL (The Combination). Played on the Oswestry ground on Saturday. b The weather was fine, but the attendance of spectators was disappointing. The home side kicked off just after three o'clock, to the pavilion goal. The game opened tamely, neither set of ■forwards showing to much advantage. For quite twenty minutes the Rhyl defenders kept the home forwards at bay, and then George Richards sent in a shot which Lawrence met and banged- into the net, the home side thus opening the scoring account. The forwards on both sides after this improved slightly, but there was no further scoring, and ends were changed with the score at one goal to none in favour of Oswestry. 'On resuming' the spectators were treated to a somewhat novel sort of football. The for- wards, especially on the home side, gave a wretched display. Rhyl now and again pressed severely, but they could not score, and as the home side were equally unfortunate, and failed to pierce, the Rhyl defence again, the home side were left winners of a most disappointing game, the score being: Oswe,stry United, i Rhyl, o. o-
DInglewood School (Colwyn Bay) v. Rydal Mount School (Cohvyii Bay). k This match was played at Dinglewood on Saturday. Rydal won the toss and played with the wind. The opening stages of the game were even, each goal being visited in turn. From a throw in, Jones raced up the wing and centred finely, but nobody was up to receive it, and a grand chance was lost. Rydal attacked, and by good luck, perhaps more than good manage- ment, Truman opened the score, the wind turn- ing the, ball into the goal. Enlivened with the success, Rydal still kept up the pressure, and Hooper scored twice before the interval. Score Rydal 3, Dinglewoo4 o. The second half open- ed in favour of Rydal, but Dinglewood soon retaliated, and Jones sent in a good shot which Underwood saved finely. Dinglewood again attacked and Jones put in a lightning shot which gave the custodian no chance whatever. After this, Dinglewood had two free kicks, one on account of the goal-keeper walking more than two steps with the ball, and another for bouncing the ball on his arm, but nothing came ■of these fouls. Just before time, Rydal ob- tained a penalty, and Firth scored. Final; Rydal Mount, 4; Dinglewood, 1; Dinglewood: H. Fairclough, goal; A. 1. Morgan and J. O. Holroyd, backs; F. Briggs, B. Dicken, and R. da Costa, half-backs; T. Roper, T. H. Holroyd, H. Tonkin, H. G. Jones, and R. T. Clayton, forwards. i Rydal Mount: Underwood, goal; Harley and Horton, backs; Mees, Proctor, and Hother- sall, half-backs; Truman, Hooper, Firth, Ib- botson, and Gibbs, forwards.
-0- Coiwyn Bay Reserves v. Deganwy, Played at Deganwy on Saturday in boister- ous weather. Colwyn Bay were represented as follows: -Goal, W. J. Evans; backs, H. Morris and T. Jones; halves, W. Brown, W. Jones, and R. Jones; forwards, S. R. Leathley, J. LI. Owen, C. Roberts, J. Owen, and F. Willipni,s Deganwy won the toss, and Colwyn Bay started downhill, with the wind in their favour. The first half, with the exception of an occasional breakaway by the home forwards, was of a one- sided nature. R.- Jones scored the first goal for the visitors with a splendid shot, after fifteen minutes' play. Two more, were quickly added by J. Ll. Owen and J. Owen. Half-time ■arrived with the scores reading Colwyn Bay Reserves, 3; Deganwy, o. From the re-start, Deganwy, witn the slope and wind to aid them, pressed hard, but the visitors were playing a splendid defensive game, T. Jones being the shining light. A breakaway by the Bayites followed, but J. Ll. Owen, when in a good position, was fouled by Pritchard, and nothing resulted. C. Roberts, W. Jones, and J. Ll. Owen worked the ball well up repeatedly, and had decidedly hard lines in not scoring. Final: Colwyn Bay Reserves, 3 Deganwy, o. For Deganwy, PucilI, Pritchard, and Jones played a good game, the latter being certainly the pick. Too much cannot be said of the Bay- ites, who are a smart set of juniors, and they played a splendid all-round game. Their de- fence in the second half was Ai.
-0- Arnold House (Llanddulas). v Dinglewood. Played at Llandnulaf on Saturday last. Dingle- wood won by ,s goals to 2. For Dinglewood, Jones (3), Morpan (3), and Clayton (2) scored, and Sutciifie twice for Arnold House. Dinsjlewood team :—H. Fairclough, goal F. Briggs, I 0 6 Holroyd, backs H. Tonkin, B. Dicken, and R. da Costa hall-backs T. Roper, T. Holroyd, A. H Morgan, Howell Jones (captain), and R. T. ClaN ton, forwards.
Prestatyn v. Mostyn. Played at Mostyn on Saturday last. Prestatyn, were not fully represented. With the slope in their f-ivour in the first half, Prestatyn soon broke through, F. \Vray converting a good centre into a goal. J. Parry next had hard lines, his shot unluckily a ti-iflc The visitors' halves generally accounted for the efforts of the Mostynites to score, W. Galiiars being particularly active. The centreing of R. Haworth and R. Roberts again met with success, the Mostyn goalkeeper having no chance to save. The ball was nicely worked down on the Prestatyn left, a goal by J. Parry being the result. Half time Prestatyn, 3 Mostyn, o. Mostyn, on resuming, had the advantage of the wind and slope, but the Prestatyn backs, J. Williams and J Jones, being in good trim, accounted for all their efforts to score. Meanwhile, the visitors' forwards were not idle, J. Parry scoring the best goal of the match for his side. With the light failing, Mostyn went in for shooting, but without result, J. Linnell bringing off some smart saves. Final result -Prestatyn, 4 Mostyn, o. 0
Colwyn Bay Wednesdays v. Llandudno Wednesdays. Played at Colwyn Bay, on Wednesday, in beautiful football weather. The teams were ruled up under referee G. Jones as follows — Colwyn Bay: Goal, A. N. Other; Backs, T. McCann and T. Hulley; halves, A. Griffiths, C. Boardman, and H. Hughes; forwards, T. Davies, Deakin, Wood, A. "Sproston," and R. Roberts (captain). Llandudno Goal, J. Roberts; backs, E. Williams and R. Hughes; halves, Roberts, W. Roberts, and Evans; for- wards, Parry,, Owen, Smith, Hammett, and Culling. The kick-off was delayed owing to the late arrival of some of the home players. With the hill in their favour Colwyn Bay pressed, and J. Roberts was tested, but nothing resulted. A continued attack ended in F. Davies gaining the first goal for the Bay. A couple of corners xell to the homesters, which the defence cleared. Even play followed, and each goal was visited in turn. From one of these raids R. Roberts .added a second for the Bay. The same player, a few minutes later, only missing by inches. Half-time score:- Colwyn Bay, 2; Llandudno, o. The re-start saw the Bayites hovering round J. Roberts, who had to repeatedly save. The feature of this half was the splendid back play of T. McCann, who repeatedly cleared when a score seemed imminent. A penalty for th homesters was entrusted to T. McCann, who had rather bad luck, the ball hitting the crossbar, and bounding out of play. With a long shot the same player scored the only goal during the second half. Final: — Colwyn Bay, 3; Llandudno, o..
Penmaenmawr v. Bangor Rangers. A friendly was played on Saturday, 21 d, thanks to some sterling work by Llew. Roberts and Edwards, they won by two goals to ens The game was in every way a very enjoyable one. It is intended to run a second team with a view to strengthening the senior side.
Football Chips. It is interesting to learn that Mr Arthur Men- zies, better known as A. W. Kay-Menzies, of Carnarvon, is likely, at an early date, to re- turn to the football field. He was the founder of the well-known Carnarvon Ironopolis F. C., and a player of much ability. That Carnarvon have a tough job in tackling Portmadoc at home on Saturday. That the. "Canaries" are sure to make a good "fite." That the two teams are old-time rivals, and play for all they are worth. That Carnarvon received their League Cham- pionship Cup at the Oval on Saturday. That they thoroughly deserved it. Conway's show at Carnarvon on Saturday was highly meritorious. That the Conwayites are decidedly on the up- grade. That they astonished some of the "Canary" supporters at the Oval. That they should be able to defeat Llanrwst to-morrow. That two points to them would be very accep- table. That Wilson maintained his reputation as a good left winger. That Llanrwst's display on Saturday was of a miserably poor description. That it is a mistake to place so capable a half-back as Jim Jones in the forward line. That it is quite a reversal of what should be to place George Whittaker in the half-back line. That there will have to be a vast improve- ment in the form of the "Roosters" ere they can hope to win foreign matches. That Conway are bound to give them a warm time to-morrow.

That should Llanrwst win their protest against Llandudno, the latter may say good-bye to the trophy. I That last year's finalists, Flint U.A.C., are again in the running.
