THE COMBINATION. BANCOR V. NANTWICH. WALTER JONES' TWO FINE GOALS. (By "Recorder"). Several of the Combination players being engaged in the Oup-tie, at Portroadoc, the Bangor Committee had to enlist the services of three Carnarvon players for this match on Saturday. A large caxma congregated and they were favoured with beautiful .weather, which savoured more of cricket than football. Teamg:- BANGOR: W. Jones; J. Arridge and J. Jones; Brock, A. Thomas, and Jimmy Jones; Joe Thomas, R. H. Roberts, Walter Jones, J. Jones (Carnarvon), and Oliver. NANTWICH: Stanton; HenBhll and Hinde; Pace, Wright, and Davies; llalphes, ebb-e., Condrev, White, and Weaver. Referee: Mr Webster, Chester The first minute of the game saw the Ban- gor forwards buzzing round the Namtwich goaJ, And Walter Jones slammed in a teaser. At the other end the ball crossed and recrossed the goalmouth several times, UJItil someone booted it yards above the bar. The Citizens had by far the best of the exchanges, alnd some "near things" occurred near Stanton's charge, Johnny J'onee once almost beating him with an over- head kick. Webb, stainding in rather a doubt- ful position, gave W. Jones, the home custod- ian, a warm handful, but he managed it. Oli- ver looked a floorer when he shot into Stanton's hands. Bangor really merited a goal, for they kept pegging away at the Nantwich goal, and J. Jones would have netted had not one of the full ACCIDENTALLY DIVERTED THE BALL ever the bar. After one run, in which he showed the opposition how cleaTJ his heels were, Oliver sent rather wealcly into the custodian's hands. A number of shots were sent Stanton's way, but they lacked sting, and the custodian was rather an active gentleman. An unusual incident occurred juat now. W. Jones, the home custodian, ran out to clear, missing the ball, which was aimed at the open goal; Jack Jones kicked out to the custodian, who took a flying kick, and al- most landed the ball through his own goal. "Bravo Carnarvon. yelled the crowd as Walter Jones capped a magnificent run, in which the custodian tried to beat him in a sprinting match, with a spanking goal. Hardly had the excitement subsided before Walter Jones, stand- ing at about quartet ground aimed at the Nant- wioh goal, and he completely ceocdved Stanton result, No. 2. Half-tame: Bangor, 2; Nantwich, niL Bangor -led off after the interval, and Oliver was soon dancing about the Nantwich goal, finishing up with a little toe tap which nearly- did the trick. White opened Nantwich's ole- count from a coonex kick. After this reverse the BANGOR MEN SEEMED DONE UP, an<1 more than once W. Jonee had reason to be anxious, and he did not appear to be in his best form. Weaver, with the bomQ custodian beaton to the world, caused a shower of lime to fall from the crossbar. Shot after shot was sent at the Bangor goal, and it was miraculous it did not fall. At last, however, Webbe managed to equalise. Jack Jones gave away a free kick just outside the penalty line, and it was only by some adroit dodging by the custodian that he saved his eharge. The spectators Sext saw Joe Thomas and his partner tearing down the field, and they drew out the Nant- "wich defence so thoroughly that Oliver had too difficulty in placing Bangor ahead. This moused the homesters to further efforts, and at last Joe Thomas stood almost on the goal line with the ball on his toes, and sent be- hind. Final Bangor, 3 Nantwich, 2.
NOTES ON THE GAME. An ideal day, a good crowd, but a mixed Bangor team. • • • • Thanks to Carnarvon, three g6od and faithful friends were found inRoberts, Wal- ter Jones, and Johnnie Jones. • • • • In the first minute Walter was in evi- dence but Stanton proved an obstacle, as dence but Stanton proved an obstacle, as he also did on several subsequent occasions The players on botlr sides were brisk a:ld showed some creditable footwork, but the game lacked incidents. < < < Possibly the most exciting event was the effort made by the home custodian to net for the visitors—by accident, of course. .8 Jones had been beaten to the world, and In his attempt left his charge.

CREWE VICTORIOUS AT DENBIGH. Crewe 5 Denbigh nil. -At Denbigh, on Saturday, the match be- tween the town team and the Crewe eleven attracted considerable interest. The visitors Were strongly represented, but Denbigh were ahort of two of their regular players, and at the last mommt had to put on Len Lewis in plaoe of Randies. The weather was wa-rm for football; nevertheless, the game waa played at a great, pace. Mr A. C. Slater, Llandudno, was the referee, and the teaana )feN: DENBIGH: S. Griffiths; T. Dickens aid T. Smith; H. Evans, T. A. Daviea, and R. I;. B. W. Evajae, E. E. Davke, Stank?
OUR SPORTS PAGE. 1 Hughes, Len Lewis, and D. B. Davies. CREWE: Birch enough; Poleon and Chap- pie; Walker, Bordell, and Brown; Walker, Davies, Daiie, Chel wood, «t&d Bordell. Deaibigh won the toss, and played down the slope in the opening half. The initial stages favoured Denbigh for whoan Berwyn Davies made some good runs, and narrowly missed scoring on one or two occasions. This was not kept up, however, and Crewe, onoe they found their feet, kept the homesters penned in for some time. Chetwood was continually dangerous. He scored a good goal, and in a very few minutes afterwards scored another, through a mistake on the part of Griffiths. Crewe maintained the upper hand, and Da- vies scored, but was ruled offside, but again netted, only to be onoe more ruled offside. Chetwood soon afterwards completed his hat trick, amd Dale added a fourth goal. A penalty kick was granted Crewe, Thomas hav- ing handled in the dreaded area. The kick was taken by DaJe, who, in trying to send the bala wide of the goalkeeper, sent against the goal-post, from which it bounded back with great force. Play on the part of Crewe slackened after this, and for a while Denbigh heM their own, but could not get within scoring Tange. Once, a terrific shot from the foot of R. W. Evans was luckily stopped by Bdrchenough, the ball striking him in the oiveot, and after the rebound had been missed the ball wae sent behind. In the second half, the game was more evenly contested. Both goals were visited, but Griffiths had much more work to do than his vis-a-vis, ae the Crewe forwards shot with precision whenever a chance presented itself, whilst the homesters indulged with their usual game of trying to work an opening while in reality they are losing ground, and allowing their opponents' defence to get to their goaL During pressure on the home goal, Dale netted, but handled the ball in the operation, and from the free kick, play was contested in midfield, but Crewe re- turned, and Chetwood brought his individual total to four goals, and the fifth goail for his side. Denbigh were triers stiùJ, but could not get near Birchenough, owing to the fine de- fence of the backs. The game ended in a somewhat easy win, for the best team that has visited the Denbigh ground this sea- eon.
RHYL DEFEAT BRYMBO. Rhyl 3 Brymbo 0 On Saturday Rhyl had Brymbo Victoria at Belle Vue, but the game was at times very tame, and both sides appeared to be more or less on holiday bent. It had been expected that there would have been a large attend- ance, but in this the committee were disap- pointed. The teams lined up as follows: — RHYL: Smith; R. Roberts, A. Roberts; W. WjSliams, F. W. Littleton, J. W. Ellis, B. Jones; D. Hughes, Gallagher, T. Harri- son, and G. Morris. BRYMBO Mason Roberts, D. Davies; P. Hughes, R. Davies, W. Venables; Patten, Williams, H. Dodd, Bates, and Edwards. The visitors won the toss, and put Rhyl to face a glaring sun. The home team went off with a rush, and good work waa put in by Littleton, Williams, and B. Jones. Ro- berts, the visiting back, came to the rescue, and cleared, but in a few minutes Harrison was on the ball. After some clever play by Morris, Harrison scored a beautv five minutes from the start. The visitors tried to get aw.-Ly aftel. this, but were quickly pulled up by A. Roberts. Towards the in- terval Harrison again found the net, the visitors being hemmed in for about ten minutes. Half-time arrived with the score reading: Rhyl, 2; Brymbo, 0. In the second half it was expected that Rhyl would have easily run away, but the visitors put in plenty of work, and had very hard lines, Patten" in particular having hard lines in front of goal. Both sides were re- I peatedly pulled up for offcide, a one-back game being played. After SfUvn minutea' I play Rhyl rallied considerably, and Harrison again found the net. No further goals were scored, and Rhyl left with the eoore reading: Rhyl, 3; Brymbo, 0. Of the RJlyl team Littleton, B. Jones, and Harrison were the pick, the former playing a really splendid game. As to the visitors, Patten, Edwards, Roberts, and D. Davies gave the bot-i, account of themselves. On Saturday Rhvl play the last home match I p of the season, havrng Oawentry as visitors.
BANGCR DEFEATS TRANMERE. L4C, GATE AND TWO POINTS. 1 (By "Recorder.") Bangor 2 j TrananeiiQ Q I A record; crowd was attracted by this ma ten at THangOr 'on Easter Monday.

Referee: Mr Bob Roberta. Crewe. Bangor played two reserves, Wright and Dick Jones, and the Rovers had a reserve goalkeeper. The first to attack were B-Angor, who, for a while, were hovejing round the Tranmene goal,, and Dick Jones fired A thunderbolt, which, land- ing on the back of one of the defenders, sounded; like the report of a cannon* Directly afterwards' Dargie almoet ran the ba.11 intfo the net, and Alfy- Thomas, from long range, skimmed the bar. It was Bangor's game, and they continually at- tacked, but in the shooting line the forv/ards left much to' be desil. At iaut, Humphreys and Dargie got. goingi, tlhe latter flashing in a hot 'un, Which Saunders fiebed out--unio;rtuiiately Mgiitt on to Dick Jones' head, and the pivot quickly nodded the ball into the net.

A SAVED PENALTY. Amid cheers. W. Jones saved the kick, aUld he afterwards made several capital saves-- After some preliminary work by Dick Humphreys, Dargie scored Bajiigor's second goal. Towards the interval, Ban.gm* pressed, and so did the visitors, Butler aJmcrt scoring, Dick Jotice electrified the crowd by aiming a terrific shot, from beyond the penalty line, the bai' appeared to be sailing into the net. when Saunders made a glorious save. Half-time: Bangta- 2, Tranmere nil. For the first five minutes of the second liall the visitors assailed tha Bangor goal, .Jack Jones making one wry timely save. An improvement was now apparent in the visitors' play, and the Bangor defcnoc had an anxious time of it., but Jack Jones was in the beet of form, which is saying a good ileal The visitors fully dese-rved a goal for they kept pegging away at the home goal, and unfortunately a slackness came over the home team. Wright however, kept the visiting left wing well in nand, and his clear- ances were fine. Oliver at la^t got going, and a race ensued between him and the visiting goal- keeper, the latter winning'.

Final result: Festiniog 4, Llanberis 1.
CONWAY v. LLAHRWST. The above teams met in a League fixture at Oonwav, to-day, in beautiful weather, but owing to another fixture in the locality there was only a handful of spectators present. Referee: Mr C. J. Thomas, od Bangor, lined the teams up as follows:- Conway: Kelly; Evans and Now Ellis; Shem Jones, LI. J. Williams, and Hughes; Craven, Johnny Davies, Joe Hughes, Jones, amd Morgan. Llanrwst: Gillet; W. D. Jones and Salis- bury Roberts; Francis Williams, R. D. Rich- ards, and Humphrey Roberts; George Chis- holm, Norman Jones, Ai'thux Richards, and W. D. Jones. Llanrwst oommepced operations against the sun. Both ends were visited in turns, and the grand play of the Blues carile aa somewhat of a surprise, considering the weak team they bad cut. Johnny Jozies initiated a movement and brought about the first- disaster to the home side, who ran down the left wing, and centred perfectly, and after a little scramble in the home penalty area, Arthur Richards put the leather itn the net. After this, the Roosters were continually held up for offside, A. Rich- ards being the worst of defender isi this respect. Conway, however, found the equaliser soon after, the Conway centre-half passing the ball to Tom Craves, who centred, and Now Jonea scored. Half-time: Llanrwst 2, Conway 1 On resuming, Llanrwst went awa.y with a rush, and Arthur Richards registered two goals. Conway responded, playing a bust- ling game, and the Llanrwst goal had several narrow escapes. Towards the finish, how- ever, C'hisholm got the ball on the hailfway line, and running round the Conway left full, put on a fifth. THE SECOND HALF. During the second half, the visitors exert- ed their utmost endeavours to draw leveil, but failed to do so. In fact, they were fstill thet inferior side. The absence of Pollitt, who had put his ankle cut of place in the first haif, obviously affected their chances, and at one time Coiwyn Bay were exceedingly unfor- tunate, for a run by Norman was stopped in the penalty area, which gave the Bay a penalty kick, and Ellis taJung the kick shot wide of the mark. At the other end Hail wood was not serious- ly troubled except on one occasion when he ncgotia-ted cleverly a warm handful from the visitors' outside right. Tom McCann also hul ill-luck with a shot which just skipped over the bar. Apart from this there were no other outstanding incidents. Final: Llanrwst 5, Conway 1.
POINTS FOR HOLYHEAD. i Holyhead 3 r Llanrwst 0 At Holvhead on Easter Mond-av. Team/?: — llOLYflEAD: H. H. Jones;. It. Williams and R. Lewis; R. Ellis, W. T. Jones, and W. Taylor, McNeil, W. S. Owen, R. T. Jones, H. O. Jones, and O. B. Edwards. JiliARWST Gillet; Carter and Trevor Jones; F. Williams, R. D. Richards, and Hwmphrey Roberts; Chisholm, H. Roberts, Cleave, n. Richards, and D. R. Jones. Holyhead were first to attack, and early on 0. B. Edwards hit the post light off the touch-line with a rasping shot. From the goal kick Llanrwst raced down the field, and were awarded a free-kick, which proved da.n- gerous as Roland missed his kick, and let in D. R. Jones, who made a very feeble attempt to score with only the goalkeeper to beat. Holyhead took up the attack again, and the pace was to temfic to last, each side strain- ing every muscle to draw first blood. Llan- rwst had a-turn again, only to be stopped •j-hort by Dick Lewis, who punted nearly thd length of the fieltl, aDd so placing "O.B." in a good position, only to see his shot go past the post. ChishoJm secured from the goal- kick, and racing right down the wmg trick- ing the half-back and full back, tested Jones with a beautiful shot, which was cleared, in a brilliant majiner, cheers being given for both shot and save. Oif went Holy,heoo again,' O.B. transferring right over to the left wing, W. S. Owen parsing to McNeil, who in turn centred to Bob, who again gave his brother Humphrey pot'session, and this youngsrter never hesitated, but let fly with a vengeance, and PRESTO THE BAIL WAS IN THE NET —Gillet making a givind attempt to save. The game livened up again after the goal, and a smart move by Llanrwst forwards led) by Cleave nearly brought an equaliser, off- side spoiling the movement-. Llanrwst were having the best of the game now, and so hard pressed was Roland that he conceded a corner, which was cleared. Half-time came with the wore 1—0 in favour of Holyhead. The teams were photo- graphed at haJf-time by a cinematograph operator. Holyhead having the sun at their backs made things warm ior the Llanrwst dei'tnoe, Trevor Jones (the veteran) coming off in grand colours. It was noticed that the home for- wards had been rearranged, and it was an improvement. H. O. Jones had another fly at the goal. and his shot deserved better fate. O.B. rushed through several opponents, only to see his shot charged down. Twenty minutes had gone of the second half when W. T. Jones secured in midjfield, and trick- ing several opponents, and seeing McNeil un- marked passed the ball nicely to him, and had his reward in see.ing his pass being con- verted to a goal by McNeil. Great difficulty was experienced in keeping the ball in the field of play. The home backs were very safe, but at times were keeping too far up the field, and on two occasions the coal ha.3 very narrow escapes. Dick EHis was a tower of strength, and kept feeding his forwards, and from one of t.he rushes H. O. Jones had a terrible drive which shook the crossbar. H. O. Jones was seen to have hurt himself in the effort, and retired for a while, only to come on again. H. H. Jones mtade one of the grandest saves right at the top corner of the net from a shot by Chisholm, the enduing oorner being cleared. Holyhead again took up the running, and with only five minutes to go. "O.B. with a lightning shot, scored No. 3 ios HolxIittwL

CARNARVON RESERVE V. HOLYHEAD RESERVE. Ideal weather favoured the visit of the Har- bourmen's Reserves to the Oval, Carnarvon, on Saturday. The turf was, perha.pe, so exoep- tionally dry that skilful manipulation of the ball was rendered almost impossible. Never- theless, a very interesting game was watched by the fair-sized crowd. The teams were composed of the follow- ing:— CARNARVON RESERVES: W. Hughm; J. T. Williams and E. R. Jonee; H. Jones. O. Morris, and Tom Loveil; R. D. W illfcwna, M Jones, R. J. Evans, Hugh Jomce, and W. Land. HOLYHEAD RESERVES: D. Evans; Bob Owen and R. Lewis; Jim Evans, T. Hyam, and Louis Jones; Hugh Brown, O. B. Edwards, H. O. Jones, and J. Jones (London-road). End to end play slightly in favour of Holy- head was witnessed at the commencement. O. B. Edwards was constantly promitnent with his rushes, which caused the home defence no end of anxietyi, J. J. Williams cleared wcIL, when the home goal was dangerously assailed, and immediately after H. O. Jones aoored an offside goal for the visitors. Holyhead were awarded a free kick close iff), and ths was sent behind. They were soon rewarded for their persistent attaoks, H. 0. Jones performing the ry operation after some clever prelimi- nary work by O. B. Carnarvon then imimediateiy made a dash for- watro towards Evans, only to be sent back. Not to be denied, however, Williams sen-t in a chance shot, which came dangerously near the visitors, goal. Land then made a laudable at- tempt, but the visitors' dielenoe was impene- trable. Evans then gave his namesake on the other side a warm handful, and he. in his at- tempt to clear, was fouled. IIyam attempted from long1 range, but J- T. Williams diverted, and conceded a corner, from which, however, nothing aoorued. H. O. Jones judiciously passed to "O.B. whose drive was admirably cleared by Hughes. Following this Owen relieved, when the home forwards were again attacking hotly. The superiority of Holyhead in the first haif was apparent, and they easily deserved their one goal lead at half time. Half-time: Holyhead Reserves, 1; Carnarvon Reserves nil. In the second haJf a different tale was told. Carnarvon, who now had the sun and slope in their favour, started earnestly, and be- fore long equalised through R. D. Williams, that player sending in an excellent shot, "which Evanis might perhaps have saved. In less than fifteen minutes, the homesters had increased their soare, Evans performing the trick during a anelee in the visitors' goal- mouth. They thon indulged in some fla-b play, and Holyhead nearly succeeded in lower- ing Hughes' colours, O. B. Edwards making a gallant attempt. Carnarvon then took up the running, and Evans spoilt excellent work by himself by sending over the bar, after reaching the goal-mouth. Land, then, brought the baJI n-ear Evans, and WAS awarded a corner. This, however, availed nothing. Holyhead indulged in bet- ter combination than the homesters, whose play was full of individual and tall kicking. Holyhead were awarded a free kick close in, which resulted in a corner, from which H. O. Jones headed out of Hughes, reaoh, thus equaJising the scores. Final: Carna-rvon Res. 2, Holyhead 2.

WELSH AMATEUR CUP. SEMI-FINAL. BANGOR RESERVE v. ABERYSTWYTH. These teams met at Portmadoc in beauti- ful wea.ther on Saturday, before a large crowd of s/ectators. Mr Postle, of Acrefair, was in charge, and the teams turned out as follows: BANGOR: Ivor Thomas; Hwfa Williams and D. J: Thomas; Arthur Owen, Hugh J. Davies, and D. J. Daviee; Humphreys, Wright, Dargie, Hughie Davies, and Edgar Llovd Jones. ABERYSTWYTH: R. Crowther; E. Hiigheo and Oswald Green; Tom Reeves, and H. H. Holt; W. D. Thomas, T. J. James, Jack Jones, Peter Edwards, T. O. Jones, and W. Wright. Aberystwyth pressed at once, and very nearly found the Bangor net 011 two occa- sions, but neat passing took the ball out of danger, and in less than five minutes Htrghie Davies scored for Bangor with a lovely shot. Then, the Bangor forwards dashed forward again, and nearly scored again, the Aber- ystwyth custodian saving a smart shot from Humphreys. A foul against Bangor almost resulted in a pen- alty kick. OBwaJd Green kicked out, but Hwfa took it on his hand and cleared. Later on H wf-a. effected another splendid clear- aaioe, and D. J. Thonia, also rendered useful service. At this juncture the Bangor forwards seemed to corifu-go the Aberystwyth defence, but unfortunately they fouled bldiy, and Jofynnie Jonea almost headed the ball into the Bangor net. A fine rush by the coast team was magnificently checked by D. J. Thomaa and *fic Hwfa. Bangor pressed in turn, and secured a coixer, but the oustodian rushed out and cleared. Peter Edwards and T. O. Jones sprinted speedily down on their own account, and penned up the Bangor forwards, Holt sending in an excellent shot. Hwfa's splendid tackling was eomethkig great, dearsng the courso time after time. Jack Jones tried to get in time after time, but Hwfa was absolute- ly a stone wall, nothing passed him. Amother foull against Bangor, and T. Reoeves gcfot in a terrific shot which went over the crossbar. Then Bangor muddled thiings close to their own goal- mouth, and had it not been for the strenuous defence made by the Bangor backs disaster would have followed. Half-time: Bangor 2, Aberystwyth 0. SECOND HALF. The Bangorians started very lively, and were soon in the neighbourhood of their opponents' goal. In an exciting struggle in front of the Abea- goal Dargie sent in a stinger to Crowther. E. Hughes kicked well up, and, the Aber forwards showed some splendid passing, which resulted in J. Jones sending in a beauty into the net. This goad seemed to waken up the Abe rates. Hwfa &ent in a beauty from midfield into Crowther s hands. Thero was a lively struggle in froait of Bangor goal, but the backs defended well. Then W. Wright got the ball again, and with a splendid shot from the wing nearly scored. A long kick by Hwfa sent the ball to the Aber goal, and a low shot by H. Da- vies was well saved by t-he Aber goalkeeper. Bangor pressed for some time now. After the ball had been up the field Edgar Jones made a run down, and passed the leather in front of the goal, but no one of his side had arrived to take it up. T. Rem, for -¡ Aber, who had taken O. Green's place, worked very hard. Dargie had very hard lines when he sent a fast shot just scraping the bar, and another shot immediately following was splendidly handled by Crowther. Indeed Crowther had his hands full for some time now, and did his work in a way that evoked the cheers of the crowd. The play was very brisk now. In a tussle in midfield Hwfa. got hurt, aaid had to be carried off the field. From this to the end the play was in favour of the Bangorians, who had several hard lines, the Aber custodian doing some grand work. Final: Bangor, 2; Aberystwyth, 1.
THE L. & N. W. RAILWAY TEMPERANCE SHIELD. (SEMI-FINAL PROPER.) LLANDUDNO JUNCTION v. NORTHAMPTON At Llandudno JnuiDtaon on Saturday, in giloriious weather, and before a largo crowd of spectatais the Junction team esrvcouirbered Northampton in the semi-final proper of the L. and N.V.

Northampton kicked off with a slight breeze in their favour, and by most scientific methods got up to I Jew. Parry's goaJ. who repulsed the attack in grand style. The Junction next pressed] and eventually secured & corner, which, howeveri proved of no avail. The visitors next broke away, but the homesters broke awaynup broke away, but the homesters sent them back. Dick Owen sent in a shot widie of the mark.

The Junetaonitea again attacked, and L. H. Roberts passed the ball to TuekfWid, who, with a nice movement, niaae a capital attempt, but failed to find the net. The Junction were now undoubtedly having the best of the game up to the end, but their final efforts were wild and erratic in their shots. A ehot from the Junction left bounced upon the bar, and rolled off the net. Half-time: Northampton, 1; Junction, nil. Final: Junction" 1; Northampton, 1.
GOOD FRIDAY MATCHES. BANGOR SUCCUMB TO HARROWBY. (Bv "Spectator.") Harrowby 3 Bangor 2 The Bangor Committee arranged a match with Harrowby Rangers to open the holiday fare in the city on Good Friday. The fol- lowing did duty for BANGOR: W. Jones; Hwfa Williams and Jack Jones; D. T. Davies, Alfy Thomas, and Jimmy Jones; Joe Thomas, Dick Humphreys, F. Wright, Norman Thomas (Beaumaris), and Oliver. HARROWBY: Probyn; Clare and White- ford; Farrell, Ball and McCabe; Smith, Bennett, Myers, Aust, and Davies. Rerferee: Mr E- Lloyd- W i 11 i arns. Leighton, Swayne (the Harrowby first team full backs), and Ackerley, Hawkins, and Williams (their three forwards) with Dargie, Hughie Davies were for holidaying, and the Bangor players were deputised by Frank Wright, of "Varsity fame; Norman Thomas, from the Beaumaris County School; whilst D. T. Davies turned up in the Last moment in- stead of Arridge. Harrowby started operations, and their in- side left forged ahead, but was checked by Alfy Thomas, and Joe Thomas sailed down the right and shot in when Wright dashed up and impeded Probyn. Harrowby went forward at a swift pace,and the left wing secured, and shot over. Bangor oame down on Probyn's charge, but D. T. Davies sent past the post. From a throw-in Wright dis- tinguished himself, and caused Probyn to handle in order to clear. A pretty movement by the Bangor front line raised the hopes of the home supporters, but WJiiteford cleared to touch. Joe Thomas was next prominent with a fine run, but was finally bottled. Da- vies (Harrowby) secured from the goalkick, and middled when Aust ran through at top speed, and when it appeared that he had over- reached the ball by the goal-line, he smartly back-heeled to Davies, who centred, and Harrowby were awarded a fruitless corner. Wright sent a skyer when well placed. Oliver came down, and forced a corner, which was cleared, and from a pass by, Ball, Myers NETTED WITH A GROUNDER. Bangor took up the running, and Oliver middled, when Wright passed to Joe Thomas, who returned the leather to Humphreys, who scored, but the point was disallowed for off- side. Bangor were awarded a corner, but after good pressure the "Pinks" got going, but no further than Alfy Thomas, who punted well forward, and Norman Thomas, with a screw shot, gave Probyn a handful. Willie Jones was next called upon to save nasty teasers, but he managed them well. After working the ball well down, Wright had the hardest of luck in sending over the bar. Har-rowby kept pegging at the Bangor goal, and after splendid work Aust scored the second for them from a difficult angle. Da- viea next forced a corner, and placed it well, but Hwfa punted clear. Joe Thomas secured and careered along the right, and McCabe stopped him in rather ignominious fashion. Before long the whietle went for half-time. Harrowby, 2; Btngoe, nil. Bangor opened the eeoond half with a rush, but the Harrowby leift wing soon troubled the home defence. The ball veered acroas to the other side, and both Jack Jones and Alfy Tho- mas miskicked, but Hv. fa saved the situation. Norman Thomas ran the ball through, and Probyn ran out of goal, and Thomas had the hardest of luck in sending a splendid shot across an empty goal. Jimmy Jones put in splendid work, threading his way through, and. then he paseed the ball on to Humphreys, wiho sent wide when- in a good position. Aust again had a drive for the city goal, but found Willie in the way and Jack Jones punbed clear, &n4 Wright carried play into the visitors' territory Dick Humphreys made another splendid attempt, but Probyn was not to be caught napping. Probyn was gn>n another hearty oheer for a series of eleven- eaves from Dick Humphreys and Oliver.
PLUCKY "SAYlna." (By "Linesman.") Coiwyn Bay 2 Rhyl Combinatifw 1 The Coiwyn Bay Executive had arranged an at tive fixture for yesterday (Good Friday) afternoon* with the Rhyl Combination eleven, and a large "gate". assembled to wiuiess the game. Fortunately, the weather was ideaL Mr Walter Parry, of Coiwyn Pay» lined the players in tiie following order:— COLWYN BAY: Haliwood; T. Wynne lCllis Mf O. E. Williams; H. C. Waterhoose, Boberts, and Met! Rowlands Hornby, Wilson Southern, Chas. Adamsoa» Stanley Hughes, and Norman Pritchard. RHYL: E. Hughes; R. Roberts and W. William* Janes, Dick Birch, and E. Rughcs; Bertie Jonen, S* Gallagher, David Hughes, Harrison, and Williams. The early stages of the game were in favour of 00 visitors, who displayed eoroe pretty passing inorO- mente, which were, however, cheeked by the hoW* defence. It waa some time before the Colwvn Da1 men found their feat, but when they did, the Rhyt defence had iin anxious time of iL It is true ibat they did not attack with the senile combination ruti ooheeion which the Nisitors displayed, but still their rushes, headed by Stanley Hughes and Wileon South" ern, were always dangerous. Stanley electrified tN. crowd with one express shot fTom lon, range, 1,u. Hughes wae not to be caught napping, and saVØlI splendidly. Down came the "Reds" again, Gllct Southern was esJled up for offside when in a fav(t.11" able position. The chief characteristic of tliis period of the game wae the magnificent work of the Rbyl half backs. They were continually robbing the "Bay forwards and feeding their own men in first claIØ fashion, rarely sending a ball astray. But, alas they, were feeding a poor quintette, who had evidently le- their shooting bodts at home, for their shota weDS anywhere bufl in the dferectaon of Haliwood. At length, however, Bertie Williams took advantage oi a beautiful paw from his inside partner, J larnson. and banged the ball into the net from an acute nogiek This reverao rewsed the home nwn, and the Rhyl end was visited, and a corDer forced. The ball was neatly and accurately placed by Hornby, and Stanley lIbO beadied an inch or two over the crossbar. Half-tame Rhyl 1, CQlwyn Bay 0. The honours of the first half decidedly rested witJI- Rhyl, and they signalised their re-appearance after the interval with a brisk deliberate attack upon the, home oitadel. From toe to too the boll waa pasaeo within the Coiwyn Bay penalty area with the great' est coolness and deliberation, and one could see that Mail wood was expecting an express any minute, but it never came tho final effort being a WEAK AND PCNY ONE, which did not deserve to reach the net. This a characteristic sample of the Rhyl meu's play. -4 movement looked prosuising in midfield, but as soo" as the goal was approached, it seemed as though these Cojnbinatioin men were trying to see how near they could get to the goal without scoring. This is no douj) an in bobby, but it is also an expensive (1' for it cost tbc Rhyl men the game. The Oolwyn Btf, forwards, on the ollier hand, devoted their whole at- tentaon to the goal-getting part of the, game. 00fjo they would have, and goal-, they got. To commence with, they had some hard luck, for Hughes saved 0 great ghoi from Hornby, and the latter player a little afterwards got across a pretty centre, which should undoubtedly have been converted. Stanley HUJ ruehed in and shod, but his namesake betweeii th« poets oooly fisted out again. Several times the cuetodian saved his side, and when at length he ,IIØ beaten, it W68 rtot bis own fault. The Bayites lv6rO pressing bard, when Wilson Southern was laid out within the dread area, and A PENALTY was awarded the home team. T. Wynne Ellis no mistake with tlie kick. It was left for to have the honour of scoring the goal which put tt' issue beyond doubt., Hornby initiated the movement getting down on the right wing, and fiasUn# acrOO a good centre.

Bangor now bucked up, but Harrowby secured and ran down, and Myers finished up with a finely scored goal. Bangor again nearly scored, but Probyn saved at the expense of an abortive oornor. Jusfc on the last minute of the game, Probyn saved finely. Final: Harrowby 3. Bangor 2.
