STILL ON TOP. LLECHID'S PROUD RECORD. (By "Spectator.") Llcchid Swift3 4 Menai Bridge 3 A strong wind ölew over the Menai Bridge football ground on Saturday, when the Bridgc- ites entertained the Second League leaders— Llechid Swifts. Pefeiree J. Burkley call- ed the players to toe the line in the following order:- MENAI BRIDGE: J. Owen; J. C. Jones and W. Edwards; Bob G. Edwards, R. T. Williams, and Ivor Edwards; Hender, A. Hughes, J. R. Owen, Morgan Jones, and Gerra.rd. I LLECHTD SWIFTS: R. A. Griffith; W. Jones and Hughie Lewis; R. W. Thomas, T. Owen (capt.), and T. Jones; T. L. Roberts, Goorgo Williams, C. A. Cooil, E. Owen, T. Donaldson. Llechid opened play, and T. L. Roberts, re- ceiving from Thomas, forced a fruitless corner. Both ends were visited in turn, with remark- able rapidity, and Llcchid were again before Owen's charge, but offside- spoilt them. Cooil next aent over the bar. Menai Bridge, from a throw- in, got through, but Hughie Lewis cleared nioely. Hender run through, but just on the point of shooting for goal he fell. However, he retrieved his mi.-take, and Griffiths saved two or three times, the leather being eventually sent to the other end, whore Cooil headed towards goal, and Owen saved at the expense of a corner, which proved .abortive. Llcchid w re again aggressive. T. L. Roberts centred across tho goalmouth, and R. G. Edwards smartly robbed Dor.aMson of the ball. Following some sLaclnxcss on the part of the Llechid de- fidce, J. R. Owen drew first blood to the aceompa.niment of tremendous shouting of Well dome, the Tigers." REFEREE AND THE CRITICS. At this stage the referee had occasion to talk to a s-e-ction of the spectators, who were not very comipli,m<aitary in their remarks to a Llechid defender. After some pressure by Menai Bridge, during which Griffiths did yeoman service, Llechid foroed a corner which was cleared. Morgan Jones ran through the defence, and in his raid he was fouled, but he regained his equilibrium, and scored, but the whistle had previously gone for a foul. Half-time: Menai Bridge, 1; Llechid, 0. Menai Bridge set things .going in the second half, and Joe Homier missed a pass to tihe right. Afkr some end to end play Gerrard centred, and Arthur Hughes scored. Im- mediately after Gerrard again rana;ong the left, amd .netted the third goal. Before long Llechid roused from their apathy, and T. JonM scored the first point for the visitors. Tho ball was worked down by IJechid, and Edwards allowed it to go towards th-e goal- line, and Owen, the custodian, sent it to cor- ner, which was cleared. Llechid, aided by the wind, were continually in front of Owen, but the fine defence of Edwards and Jones kept danger at a.rm,3 length. Bob Thomas ere long decreased the homesters' lead. At length (ko. Williams drew the scores level, and added aji other one, giving Llcchid the lend. Final Llechid Swifts, 4: Menai Bridge, 3.
