NOTES. 1 I. —1 (By "Nemo."} Wretched weaAher prevailed, rain falling in torrents when the game commenced. Notwithstanding the treacherous state of the ground, the game opened at a fast pace, with the visitors having slightly the better of the exchanges. The visiting forwards early on gave tho im- pression that they were a dangerous quintette. Having successfully warded off the Bangor advances, the Whitchurch defcnce was fairly taken by surprise, Dargie winding through and beating the alert Bingham with a low, oblique shot. A strange incident occurred. It was noticed that Bull, the visiting inside-left, was stagger- ing and he was seen to collapse, and Evans (Ban- gor) tried to grasp him. It transpired that the player had injured his head through heading the ball, which was heavy. Bangor's second goal was secured by Dargie again with a judicious header from a corner by Evans. The da.nge.rous rtuh^i? of the Whitchuroh for- waxda 1 kcd Y(-ry- omi iis, and it came ?as no '-no surprise when. Edgely beat Teel close in after a "throw up" by the referee near tho goalip-oet. An amusiniz incident was witnessed. The referoo signalled' for :\0 free-kick for Bangor. All the Bangor forwards advanced up the field. One of tho Whitchurch men, however, shot towards tho Bangor, goal, hit the pont, and after an ugly rush the ball was put behind, t.ho re- feree granting a goal kick. During the first few minutes of the Latter half, Bangor attacked in spirited fashion, and a series of corners were luckily cleared. The last corner, however, was the subject of a disput?, the Bangor claim being that the ball had crossed the lino when Bingham cleared. The referee was again criticised for some questionable de- cisions. Ba.ngor increased their lead 10 minutes after the restart through Walter Jones. TLe same player repeated it soon after, but was adjudged off-side. The Whitafourdh men certainly displayod superior football to that. of the homesters and no one bagrtidged them the goal which Bull scored close in.

At the other end Evans sent over when the goal -was empty. Shot after shot was rained at Bingham, and at last D. T. Davies let, fly and the ball travelled at great speed—behind.

Swayne, L. McNiei. Rain was falling- heavily and it was agreed to play 35 minutes each way. Play opened with a rally on the visitors' goal which was cleared by W. T. Jones. The Roosters returned to the att.ack and a fine kick close to the visitors' penalty ar,,a. reslilt(,d in t triel-ce i%h'cii was relicv,?d by I)ick Ell;'s.

Dennis next sent in a beauty from the left, Owen clearing well. Holyhead then forced a corner which proved fruitless and they kept up the pressure for several minutes. At last¡ tho Roosters woke up, Howell from rig-iit half sent in a beauty, Owen kicking over the crossbar, the ensuing corner 00- ing a blank. flaii-t Imo:L!anrwst 1, Holyhead 1. On resuming, a run up on the Roosters left wing was well returned by Humphrey Roberts. Howell eventually secured and a corner ensued, A. Richards taking' the kick. Another oorner fol- lowed but was also f uitless. A corner now fell to the lot -of Holyhead, McNiei striking the^ crossbar. Ihe ball returned to play and was se-«! cured by Howell Roberta who sont in an obliques shot right across the goal-mouth, Dennis and' Evan who were within a. few yards of the posts missing the leather. Play now became exciting. A. Richards wandered from the centre to the right wing and had a tussle with the- Holyhead leit half. Richards, however, retained possession and dribbled down towards the goal. He was' met by the visitors' left back, whom lie out- witted and with, a beautiful shot scored the Roosters' winning goal. Final: Lianrwst 2, Holyhead 1.
PWLLHELI GO UNDER. Llandudno Junction 2 Pwllheli i The South Carnarvonshire representatives < journeyed to Llandudno Junction on Saturday in search of League points. The fact that tho home team had not had at home a First. Lea^rucj fixture for some time no doubt accounted for the^ la.rg'e gate which assembled in spite of the mi- favourable ws-ather.

Pwi'iiheli played down the slope, and their first goal was recorded in five minutes from the start. The visiting forward pack moved down the field in fine style, and C-iilett, with poor judgment, left his sticks, the result being that Sandy Williams had no difficulty' in netting the ball. A smart- run up by the Junction"men j was spoiled by Sam Parry shooting behind in a seoond attack on the Pwllheli goalie, following upon a free-kick from near the penaltv line almost resulting in tho Junction men equalising. It was more by good luck than by good man- a.gement that some of Ernest Parry's shoti were stopped. The players had great difficulty in keeping their feet, the ground being muddy and in a treacherous condition. There was g.re. excitement when W. R. Roberts, the home centre-half, broke thro-ug-h the pack, and passed il,4c) Frile??t Parrv. who cros&ed to tile right, Jco flu.-lies foulod just, outs:.dc? the petialtv area. l'oi-n Jcn-e-i took the free-kick. an(] se n't i.n a bta,itiful ]oAr sliot, which was deflcet, i ou t. of its course by one of the Pwllheli bocks.

On resumption of play the Junction men play- ing down the slope assumed the upper hand, and it was only about ten minutes from the restart when they equalized. There was a melee in front of the Pwllheli goal, and Sam Parry, the home outside left, found the net with a clever shot. The home side continued to press, and it was was most amusing tc see Gillet, the home goalie, standing near the half-way line, but it was also ,i dan I ,?,,erous game to play, for Pwllliel' broke away and were nearly successful, Gillet being only just able to get back to his charge in time to save the final shot. There were only a few. moro minutes to go when a free kick was awarded to the Junction. "Xow" Ellis, the home left full back, sent in a grand shot. The Pwllheli custodian dived into tho corner of the net in attempting to stop it, but Ernest Parry, the home centre, cleverly diverted the ball into the net. It was a brillant goal—one of Parry's typical efforts and he well deserved tho hearty cheer with which his achievement was greeted. This proved the winning goal and although the Pwllheli men had played a hard and sometimes a clever game, no one could doubt but that the points went to the better of the two teams. Final: Llandudno 2, Pwllheli 1.
COLWYN BAY v. BANGOR RES. FORMAL OPENING OF NEW GRAND STAND BY COUNCILLOR MORGAN. When these tgams met in a League fixture at Colwyn Bay, on Saturday afternoon, there was a more numerous gathering of spectators than usual, notwithstanding the wet and cold weather. Many..had been attracted no doubt to witmjc-,s au inte-ti'l litt2o e-eremony, which took placo ,Iri-ng th-e -ervaj.

The stand is a plain, but withall a well-built and commodious struc- ture, capable of accommodating about 250 people. So far, it has not been covered over- head, but it w hoped to make this good with a little practical publio help.

Parry; Furbe.r, II, Evans, Brown, Richard Jones, and <1. Ll. Jones. Colwyn Bay opened the game in a business- like fashion, one brilliant- run on the right by Southern and Stanley Hughes raising' a stirring ichecr from the spectators. The Ban- gor left-back cleared at the expense of a corner, while Ivor Thomas was full length IOn t..h,e grott?-?d. A second Stan-ley Rugh-es t was jerked off the ball when he had the goal practically at his mercy. A lucky escape for the City men At the other end", W. Parry sent in a beautiful volley from thirty yards out', but Hallwood fielded, well. Pretty foot- ball by Brown in midfield was much admired, but it was oA'or-done, the player finally losing the loal, and gi-i-ng an <)I-enino, to his oppo- tient,s. ?4ome i-nteiw?stii3g plav l'ol- dow,ed, tli.3 att,acl,-ing lines on both sid?e.; dis- pass'n! 1 ?: bolit.s. Y"19 60 tiv but neither side E,ids were cli?Lnged, I held much of an advantage, though Bangor were obviously keener on tho ball when near the net. Thomas, for Bangor, rendered useful service at back, .and Ivor Thomas in the net was not found wanting. Hallwood also stopped well twice in succession. Noat work by Brown gave H. Evans it v. Tlii- latter was dead on the an opportun, mark with a powerful drive, but Charlie pulled the bull down from right under tho bar and cleared smartly. Phillips and Stanley Hughes were soon prominent at the other end. The lat- ter compelled Ivor to save at the cost of a cor- ner, which, however, proved abortive. One of the prettiest things of this half was the dribble of Norman Pritchard on tho home left. Man after man he evaded with Meredithian skill, but he was finally charged off by Thomas jusL in time. Half-time: Colwyn Bay 0. Bangor Reserve 0. When play was resumed Hughes, for Colwyn Bay, had a practically open goal in front of him, but he shot into Ivor's hands. Directly afterwards, this was followed by a penalty against Bangor for handling. From the free- kiok the ball wa.s centred, Stanley Ilugfoes meet- ing' it and scoring with a finel volley. Tho visitors at tliisi sta.ge appeared to have lost iro-ioli of their -,elf -co ri-fidc-,Pjce, and Colwyn Bay were enjoying the best of the argu- ment. The absence of Southern, who had been injured, accounted for a little lack of strength in the attacking force. But several capital efforts were made by Stanley Hughes, McCann, and Phillips. Within a-few minutes of time Nor- man broke, away with a smart dash on the left, but Thomas tripped him, and a penalty kick was instantly awarded. Nothing,however, came of this. Immediately afterwards Norman just missed. Bangor were obviously a beaten team, and but for their full backs, who defended stub- bornly, the home side must have had a better goal advantage. A few seconds before the whistle sounded Southern missed by a few inches. Fieal: Colwyn Bay 1, Bangor 0.
NEW STAND OPENED. During the interval Mr T. E. Purdy called upon Mr T. II. Morgan to declare open the new gra-nd stand. Mr Morgan said it afforded him great pleasure to attend that afternoon to per- form such an interesting- ceremony. He had not been on the ground before- and h.3 was highly pleased to see that considerable efforts had be,-it made to intake it comfortable for botQl, spectators and players (applause). He was much gratified to see that they had been provided with a) very nice stand, and though it was not yet covered he hoped the club would: receive guoh support from the public that that would be qujckiy made good so that spectators might bo sheltered in bad weather (hear, hear). He had very muoh pleasure in for- mally declaring the stand open (applause). In proposing' thanks to Mr Morgan, the Rev. Llewelyn A. Richards, M.A., Old Colwyn, said Mr Purdy and' the committee .'should be supjjorted by as iiiiLn, as possible of the local residents— (hear, hear)—because he firmly believed they were carrying on ti (,ir work on good lines. They -i advocated temperance and were doing their ut- most to m-event the use of bad Ia11.gua.g13 on the. field, and: as football. >>operly played, was a manly game they should all try to support the committee (applause).—Mr Bifchell seconded tne mot.an whicl* was oarr.ed with enthusiasm.

During- one attack Cnarlio Francis put om No. 3 for Carnarvon. Though two goals in arrear, Green Ttelped his side onward by punning towards LI. M.

I POOR GAME AT LLANDUDNO. I Llandudno Reserve — 2 Dolwyddelen O Tlicso teams met in the second round for the Junior Cup, at Llandudno, on Saturday, be- fore a meagre attendance of spectators. The referee, Mr Caleb Thomas, Bangor, lined up the teams as follows:- LLANDUDNO RESERVE: Lunt; n. T. Williams and G. H. Davies; H. D-avies, 0. W. Davies, .and Owens; John Williams, A. M. Davies, Frank Roberts, and J. Meredith. DOLWYDDELEN: J. D. Jones; J. Wil- liams and D. McNaiighten; J. Evans, Barrett, and R. J. Roberts; Llew. Owen, G. Griffith, J. McNaughten, D. Jones, and E. Griffith. It was with the greatest difficulty that the homesters were able to get up a team, and they had to take the field with only ten men. During the opening stages, the visi- tors attacked, and had the best of the play, but failed to find the net. Afterwards, play became more even. G. M. Davies having got possession made a nice run down, but was robbed at the goaiimooith. Tho visitors secured a corner, which they failed to convert, although the leather was nicely oentred. The Amateaire next obtained a cornea-, which proved of no avaJl. From a centre by J. Williams, J. M. Daviea sent in a terrific drive, which was well saved by the visitors' custodian. Midfield play ensued, and H. Davies was conspicuous for good work. lie despatched a good shot, which was well saved by the victors' custodian. Frank Roberts having gained ion of the leather made a clean run down the field, and only missed the net by inches. A comer for the Arnateum proved fruitless. At this stage Barrett (Dol- wyddelen) and Frwnok Roberta (Llandudno) had to leave the field owing to injury to their knees. Just before the wliistie sounded for half-time J M. Davies was afforded a fine opportunity for scoring, but he sent wide of the mark. Half-time: Llandudno Res. 0, Dolwyddelen, 0. After the interval both the injured pl-ayere joined their respective teams, and Llandudno was increased to its full strength by the addition of Sb-iple v in the centre. The visitors appeared to be having the best of the game for tho first ten min<utos until Frank Roberts broke away. and with a nice clean long shot scored first goal for the Amateurs. This encouraged the home- sters, who made a determined attack, when Shipley passed to Jack Williams, who had tho misfortune to shoot against the jxxit. George Davies next tried conclusions, and narrowly missed scoring upon two occasions. The home- «sters corstmueid the pressure when W. Shipley, after a meleo in front of goal, landed the ball -D ri v-fely i the net, thut3 m,%I,.ing the horn4cg?rs two up. Play now became very tame, and both teams appeared to ba tired out, and a poor game, which lacked combination on both sides, resulted in a victory for Llandudno by two clear goals. Final result: Llandudno Res. 2. Dolwyddelen 0.
AN ABANDONED GAidE. AWFUL WEATHER AT 'STINIOG. 131acnau Festiniog .2 -Liandudno -Reserve- 0 -1 These teams met at Newborough, Blaenau Fe3- tiriiog on Saturday in weather too bad to do- scribe in print. In fact tho paper would not stand the language the elements deserved. Part of the ground was under water and the other portions were slimy with mud. Teams:— LLANDUDNO JUNCTION: Llew Parry; G. Williams and A. Dutton; Cordorey, Owen Parry, and W. F. Jones; David Hughes, David Parry, Tommy Morgan, J. R. Owen, and Chester. FESTINIOG W. J. Penny Dan T. Jones and E. Williams Bob Parry, Lewis Jones, and Hugh Jones; Evan Owen, E Barlow, G. R. Davies, E Owen, and Owen Hughes. Referee. Mr W. R. Griffiths, Penmaenmawr. Immediately ..fter the opening exchanges the homesters would have opened the score, but for one of the forwards getting offside. David Hughes, David Parry, and J. R. Owen cleared in fine style and rushed towards the homo goal, but Penny defended smartly. He repeated the per formance soon afterwards amid loud cheers. A. free kick foi the homesters went over the cross- bar. J. R. Owen and Chester put Penny on his mettle, but he withstood tho strong attack splendidly. A corner to the visiters, Ito bJ-i going over the crossbar. Llew Parry had his de- fence severely tested by high shots from T. Bar- low and J. R. Davies. The homo backs fed their forwards well, and a smart interchange of kicks took place within a few yards of the goal mouth. E. R. Davies dribbled almost into the danger zone and Hughie Owen forced a corner. The ball was slimy and heavy, and accurate shooting could not pos.ibly bo accomplished. Now. Penny \onturad too f:-r afield, aiid his charge would have come to grief had mot. Tommy Morgan in- ^e-vened. Edward Owen, who had just tried a ,r-ew sliot for goal, travelled smartly up the field, but George Williams and Dutton tackled him successfully. Evan Owen pushed himself forward, and almost came on shaking terms with tho oal. Llew Parry, however, brought him up smartly. T. R. Davies, by means of a. smart back kick put the ball into the vjfcfitor.V net. Half-time: Festiniog 1, Junction 0. It. was dishoartening to enter upon the second half under such miserable c-limatic conditions. All the rlay-ors were wet throu.gh and bespat- tered wth mud. D. Hughe#, for the Junction, did not fail to avail himself of every opportunity to score but was foiled at each attempt. The home backs .were very strong and the visitors could make no impression. Owen soored num- ber two for the visitors. The spectators were now beginning- to leave the field owing to the incessant rain. The referee deeide.d to abandon the game at this stage when the score stood — Blaenau Festiniog 2, Llandudno Reserve 0.
LLECHID DRAW WITH HOLYHEAD RESERVES. (By "Verax.") Llechid 2 Holyhead Reserve 2 Played at Bethesda on Saturday, Referee Welch, of Crowe, lining the teams as follows:- LLECHID SWIFTS: R. A. Griffith, W. Jonoj anu Edward Owen; R. W. Tdoma.s. T. Owen and (' Jones,; T. L. Roberts, Geo. Wil- liams, T. Donaldson, W. G. Jor.es, and W. Donaldson. HOLYHEAD RES:. Newton Williams; J. Evans and R. Lewis; O. Williams, T. Higbain and J. Jcii-e 11. Brown, J. W. Jones, F. Reece, J. Jones and II. Williams. Though tho rain was falling heavily and the ground and the ball were in a sodden state, tho jday was better than might have been expected unJ-er .such circumstance. Immediatel,y after the start the visitors, playing down the fie'd, rushed down, and made for their op- ponents' goal, but tlie homesters retaliated, Newton Williams being called upon to s'ave scleral times. Holyhead pressed in turn, and forced two fruitless corners. The defence of tho Swifts was very sound, and their forwards sent the ball up the field onoo more. End to end play followed, the advaniiago being in favour of the Swifts, who, however, though they had th-e best of the game were unable to scoro through faulty shooting. Both the goalkeepers were tested in turn, and they were both. fairly saved. After T. L. Roberts had missed a.n open goal Will Jones rushed up and drew first blood. Half-time: Llechid Swifts, 1; Holyhead Rsse-rve, 0. Ou resuming play, the visitors began to press, and Hugh Williams, coming up, eeorcd easily. The fi-e.:d had now ibecome worked up. The visitors did most of the pressing, but when the goal was open to thm the forwards sent- wide. On one occasion, the Holyhead forwardis taking a corner, the REFEREE WAS INADVERTENTLY STRUCK IN THE EYE, which incapacitated, 'him for a short time. Good work among the forwards was now witnessed, but play was fairly even, and several corners to both sides were not taken (advantage of. After a little exciting play, Will Jones, on tli-e left-wing, ceutred, and T. Donaldson gave tho Swifts the lead. The homesters woke up, W. Donald- son putt?-,ig in a good c-c?ntic-, but it prov,c.ci inQff?ctiv-0. Tliz? g,,im-c? was pl?ay?Ld i-n a sporls- rn fi? 1, E, ltiinlt m I Y. nica comblmrod movement, by tho Holyhoad forwards, H.

PENMAENMAWR STILL UNBEATEN. Penmaenmawr 3 'Varsitv 11 Tho Bangor University and tlhe Penmaenmawr teams met at Peimiaeniuawr dn the 2nd round for t:fie Junior CtLpon .9abLtrda;y in unfavottrabia h?c,r. Tli, raa*ji during t;ho and a heavy fall before the match began, rendered the field into a "sliding- area." Mr J. B. Morgan, Portdinorwic, lined up the teams in the follow- ing order:— PENMAENMAWR: Bob Lloyd; W. E. IIugh«,s and H. Jan>es; Bob Brown J. Jones and Tom Jones J. W. Limt, A. G. Jones, R. Morris, C. Sloans, -and Caleb Williams. UNIVERSITY COLLEGE D. Thomas; H, Brock, C'. H. Jone-s; C. A. Cooil, H. LI. Wil- liams, A. W. Williams; F. LI. Davies, T. Wright, T. J. Griffith, 'W. G. Jones, Eben Thomas. Pemmaenmawr won the toss and ohose playing -against the wind. Tito visitors scorned to be a d etermined lot, and in a few minutes Wright 'had the satsfaetioffi of scoring1 the first, for thorn. Then play wa.s pretty level. Morris tried hard to score for the homesters but luck was against him Bob Lloyd was called on to save two or three, which he did- -in fine style. About ai miwute before the half-time whistle, Morris soored for tho homesters amid much shouting "Play up the 'Custard Boys. Score at half-time: Penmaanmawr 1, 'Varsity 1 In the second! half the "Custards" had the wind, more or less in their favour and had tho cleaner portion of the field for themselves. Dur- ing the first terv minutes, the ball only crossed the cent.re twice. After some smart passing Morris scored No. 2 for the homesters. The shouting had hardly stopped when Charlie Sloane sent in a rattler from the right. Nothing serious happened then till the end, though the Varsity boys pressed hard, the home backs paid them back in their own coin by kicking out. Finall soore: Penmaenmawr 3, 'Varsity 1, The "Custard Boys" were by far tho better team and all the team worked well. Cooil was the "'Varsity's" backbone. Without him they wou'ld have had a "dirty licking." # « Davies behav-ed fairly well on the whole. Ardhie decorated liis face with mud and he looked well what with begrimed clothes amd face. Bob IJoyd played a capital game for the "Custards," effecting some smart eaves. Morris' two goals were excellent. He is one of eleven good men.
PWLLHELI RESERVES' GREAT FALL. — Daigailey "I.6 Pwi fhal i -Reserve .1 I T'nir, gs pla3-c-d in ,,am,c, wa Pwllheli. Dolgelley scored! early in the game by a. miskick on tiIW part of a Pwllheli, back, and immediately afterwards th-o goalkeeper had the misfortune to kick the ball against the fuii-back, off whom it bounded ixsto the net. The rain made aU proper play impossible. A penalty wa3 awarded Doigeiley, from whioh they scored again. Close on the adjournment they increased their lead by four goals. On resuming piay two of the Pwllheli backs were unabie 'to appear on the field—one of thorn through cramp, and the other "crying" off on account of the weather. After about a quarter of an hour's play, in which Pwllheli scored a penality and Dol'gelley scored two more goals, Pwilheli abandoned the ga.me when tho score read: Dolgeliey 5, Pwllheli Rea. 1.

The game was of a ding-dong character right up to half-.me, and Rhyl lost many chances. They had the mapority of the first half forty-five min- utes. but the forwards seemed to lose their hoad; in front of goal. SECOND HALF. A < regaids the second1 half of the game, Llan- dudno had the wind in their favour, and they gave their opponents very little chance of aoprmgv Rhyl were kept on their side of the midfield line nearly the whole of the time, and the Amateurs appeared in a scoring mood. About the middle of .the second portion of the game seamed to booomo very tame, and it was during, that period that tho only goal of the day was cooned. It war, xna-na-c,d, In tn ea:?y man?n^,r by Bob Da-ie- wh?o tl,cd the bail from the right wing, and with a neat twist of h:s foot he landed it, in the corncr of the net. What a rousing cheer went up from the tJa-n- dudino enthusiaste "I told you so," was the exclamation on' all sides. The fo put fresh life: into the Amajte-urs, and not only did the forwards play for all they were wortn, but the backs bucked up and put power behind their clearing shois. Whenever tho ball came the way of B. Morris he did not trouble about passing": he olearcd with fine powerful shots. Cloevo was all over his opponents, while Da- vies and J. E. Williams vied with each other s to who should do the most work. Johnson also put in plenty of fine play, and matters | were made unpleasant for the home defence, al- though W. Williams was equal to the attacks. It was not until about ten minutes from tin:3 that the Rhyl team really put hcairt into heir game, and they kept up the pressure right, to a minute from the end, when there was a rush ior the home goal. No further scoring ook place, and the Amateurs ran out winners by 1—0.
LLANFAIRFECHAN v. NORMAL COLLEGE. This match was played at Lhinfairfechan on Saturday, before a. 6mall attendance as the weather was not conducive to a bigger! The homo team played two men who had signed on from Bangor. Winning the t-oss the homesters kicked up-hill. Com met started to press but it was fifteen minutes after the start- before real business re- sulted. Then it was the Collegians who scored from a penalty, awarded through Dan Jones handling, Hopwood taking* the kick and drawing "first blood. Llanfair pressed in turn and T. Williams managed to equalise for his side. How the spectators, specially the 'Fechans, cheered themselves hoarse. They were small in numbers but they gave as good as a college yell Play was pretty even from this date, W. T. Jones earning many encomiums for his fine head- work. We hope he has'nt got the headache. If lie has it was -in a good cause! From a comer kick the Normals got another through and at half-time the visitors lead by two goals to one. Half-time: Normals 2, Llanfair. 1. On resuming the Collegians at once started pressing and scored two more goals in rapid suc- cession, Manley having no chance to save. Llan- fair played for alll they were worth, Dick Jones having decidedly hard lines on two occasions. He certainly should have had one out of the two. From a throw in Griff Owen secured the ball and drove hard into the net, beating the goalkeeper all to pieces. Both teams strove hard to increase the score, but all in vain, and when time was called the Normals won by four goals to two. Final: Normals 4, Llanfair 2.
BANGOR RAILWAY INSTITUTE BOYS' CORPS v. FRIARS SCHOOL. Played on Saturday in wretched weather. Friars pressed, but the home defence was equal to the occasion. Turnbull broke through, but shot wide. The Corps kept up the pressure. Davies, with a terrific drive, struck the upright. Friars broke away, and H. Thomas tested the homo goalie, who had to concede a corner, the resulting kick coming to nought. Friars con- tinued to press, their right half giving them the le%d with a cross shot. Nothing daunted, tho Corp3 raided the visi- tors' territory time after timo the goal escaping capture in a marvellous way. Half-time: Friars 1, Boys' Corps 0 Resuming, the Corps scored through a penalty, and Friars scored a few minutes later. The visi- tors' defenco was brilliant, A. D. Jones and Bamford relieving the piossure. The homesters through Walker were put on level terms. They were still having the best of matters, and Ward scored with a ground shot. Play became excit- ing and J. C. Owen equalised for Friars. Both defences were tested in turn, but no further soor- ing- took place. Final: Boys' Corps 3, Friars School 3.
RHYL CELTS v. RUTHIN. Played at Ruthin on Saturday, in wet weather. The game commenced in great style, B. Jones scoring smartly the first goal for the Celts. Ruthin, however, were not long in equalising and at half-time tlhe scóre stood at one each. The second half saw even play. Ruthin were not long in drawing ahead, and they still further increased the lead from a penalty by Thomas. After some fine play by the Celts' forwards, B. Jones radme-od the lead. J. Thomas equalised. The Celts were now having the best of the game and eventually they ran out on even terms with their opponents and thus kept their unbeaten record. Result: Ruthin 3, Celts 3.

David E' ,on Sibi-iday ni, ht, -dward,3 s'l i that many boys and young' men in the town took all abnormal interest in football, and it would be well if they took as much: interest in the Bible, He did not object to the game of football when it was played in a manly and straightforward way, but it should not be their only interest.
LLANDUDNO JUNCTION SPARKS. At la>t we havo had another First Division League niatah on th,) Woodlands field. The weather left a great deal to be desired* for the muddy condition of the field mado matters extremely unp.easant, for both p.ayers and speetatom, not to speak of the rain wiiich fell during the match. # Never thole vs, the game was, under the cir- cumstances, an enjoyable one. ». Pwllheli had, I understand, a somewhat weakened team, and, amongst other absentees, was the -popular liert Evam., tho old Conwajr piayer, who has proved such an acquisition to tho South Carnaryonshir-a team. W K However, I hardly think that this made a material dilforence, ior ithe Pwllheli men put up as good a light as possible against a superior 1oOam. « « In the first half the visit.<-ievor. found tho net first, bLz4- fox adL' that th?,- Jurxfi<,n ILact lia-,i Lli, be-t of Lo game, aiid tii-a 1'n.ui.TL3 w,,r,(, de- 'dk o r, vL'3r lucky to hcdd a -el )cad at the irtervaj., Seldom have I seen a defence more lucity than tho visitintg backs and goalie were in tiie first half, and in fact throughout the game. Time and again shots from the Junction for- wards were only stopped by the fortunate inter reiition of a leg or body at the iaat moment. j The Junction men were in fine form, and played well together. ? < Gillett did well between tho pasta, and Tom Jones a;nd "Now" Ellis were remarkably safe a.t full-bad:. t It was parioularly pleasing to see tho veteran "Now" in such good form. It reminded onto of the old days when the Oonway team was a foroo to be reckoned with in the League. The half-backs wcro also "great." W. R. Roberts, at centre-half, could not have beea better, his tackling being fine. • » Will Evans was also smart on the right; whilst Evan Jones, although in a strange posi- tion, did wcU. <> < The forward line was also well up to iita work, < Lunt, at outside Tight, was too slow. How- over, he i3 not nearly so clever a wing man aa Tom Craven, who is in the Junction Rceervo eleven, It Joe Hug-hee played well a-t inside right, but the pick of the quintette was. undoubtedly Ernest Parry. » « « Parry is a skilled centre-forward. He has the knack of anticipating the movements of his fellow-forwards, with tho result that goals are soored, • « • • He is the right moan to have in the centre, and the Juiicion team are to be congratulated upon having secured hb services. 1: Brookes-Evans and Sam Parry made a useful left wing. « « The Pwllheli eleven are a good lot of fighters, but they were net so scientific a party as the Junctionitej on Saturday. The Junction Reserves were at Fe?t.iniog on Saturday in the second round for the Junior Cup, and were fortunate inasmuch as ftho game was abandoned before the finish, when the I3H-aen.au mn o leading by two ganJo ito nothing.
COLWYN BAY CLIPPINGS. Bangor Reserves were well beaten at Oolwyn Bay on Saturday. On the run of the game they deeerved a throe-none defeat, and they would have had it had the least b:t of luck favoured tin Seaside rs. The two goalkeepers accomplished many fino perforinaroes. Ivor Tliomas had, of course, mora to do than. Ilallwcocl, but both m-cn rendered their teams' excellent service. « • A IIall wood's return, to the net has apparently revived confidence amongst, the home backs. Long- may you retain your place, Charles. *#* David Roberts is steadily improving' at back. His powerful kicking was a considerable factor in Colwyn H'ay's suoccss on Saturday. More- OY€T ihia tackliing' Ls more retMuroeful and coura- ?eoua. Roberts hn-a th'a bui)'d of an id'M.1 back a/r))d ho is fast apquirmg' the oth'e'r quaJit.-ea needr tui. lul. With tho ground in a treacherous condition "O.E." also did very well despite his faulty leg. 11 McCann was not quite himself at centre- half, his kicking being somewhat weak at times. But Tommy is always so much in evidence that one "spota" an off-day perhaps too readily. Assisted by the veteran Ned and hustling, tire- less Dick Rowlands he helped, however, to com- pl.e.te a bot-ber socond line than that opposed to them. It All fiv-û home forwards worked splendidly. The introduction of G. P. Hughes vice Ilowel1 Pritchard at inside-left strengthened the attach materially. Not that Hughes is personally < very much better individual pfeyer than IIoweH, but he served his wing man much more effeo tively, and it is organisation that tells. Stanley Hughes was again the best of tbt quintette. No ma.n on the field laboured so hare nor on the whole so cleverly. His goal was < characteristic effort—the result of a terrific driv. Whipped in without any preliminary daJJying. "Stan." is making remarkable progress and, providing the operates on the same unselfish lines and with the same splendid industry, there U no telling where his football career may end, He is certainly one of the very best forwards Of the North Wales Coast just now. *• # D. J. Tliomas at back was the' most prominent figure on the- Bangor side. He was certainly well beaten on three or four occasions, but he was opposed by one of the nippiest little wings playing League football. He also erred badly on one occasion in tripping hÜ man. Neverthar less he played a fine game. « Stanley was less resourceful. Dargie and Parry were outplayed repeatedly, and Jones was by no mans sound at centre-half. Furber and H. Evans were the best forward wing. Brown displayed -skilful command over the ball with his ieet, but his work was largely unproductive for the old, old rca.on-indiydu.- •lism. # # Mr Hersee adjudicated well on the who!?. Finally, may I congratulate Mr Purdy ami his committe-e upon the new stand and other improvements carried out on the ground thi. season. As the Rev. Llewelyn R chardd re- marked, the committee are performing theij duties on the right, linco. and it Is to bo hopxg that Mr R appeal for adequate support to the club will be fruitful. Oncc the mv siand i, covere.l the Colwyn Bay venue will be unex- ceptionabiy attractive.
