CHATTY AND DESCRIPTIVE. ANOTHER VIEW OF THE GAME. (From a Corrcspandient.) "1ou' 11 see some fine play to-dav," said my friend Jenkins as the two teams took their placet) in th2, field, "you "see, our men, the Amateurs, were handicapped at the last match," lie added; "Colwyn Bay ground is muoh 6mall.crand they could not jucSge the distance, aren t they a fine lot." They certainly looked, as he saad, a "fine lot" -.dres;;e.d in a neat costume of striped bhie-white jersey, and whito knickcvrs, an athletic and well-proportioned team rather above the average size of footballers, tltey con- trasted with their opponents, whoee black and red jeraoya had the effeob of dwarfing their ap- pearance. But it seemed ae if this ground! also waa too small for thorn, for they soon took the ball down to the Coliwyn Bay goal, and kicked it over the line. The wind was with them, and they were too strong' on the ball.—"They'll steady down just .now," su idl Jenkins. "Juat not:oe that back staldin.g. there waiting for the ball—the eafeet man in North Wales. It is said that E verton were enquirkng- about. him last ae-a. son." But Jenkin's remarks were out short far the ball was carried 00 the goalmouth, and the goalkeeper glanced it off, giving a comer. The excitement now on our stand was getting ken,and when the kick was taken, which re- sulted! in the ball going over the bar, a gentlo sigh a.rocie from the crowd. Time after time was the ball earned to tihe goalmouth and then either kicked oyer or the ball was gathered) up by the goalkeeper. After half an hour's play, two of the Ulan- d'udno forwards raced down the field, t,rbd, passing the outside man, it was dribbled almost, level with the goal line, llhen a good centre, the opposing backs forming a phalanx of players trying to save. Then a terrific shot, and Jenkins said: thought we shouldlhave tbem aoon;" but to our d-ismay tihe goalkeeper steals through with tho ball, and! kicks up the field, "A magnificent' save, satd Jenkins. And now the opposing team were carrying the ball towards the Llandudno goal. "It's no good" says Jenkins, "tbey don't know what to do with it." "Ha I thought, so he's kicked it too fa.r, but it so happened, that as the Llandudno back ran to save, he made a. huge kick and misled the ball. A howl of derision arose around us on the stand, for- the g\)al was scon registered. "Is that the very safe player whom you said Everton were enquiring- after," I asked Jenkins. "No," answered, Jenkins, laconically. It seems that Colwyn Bay had now the fortune of war, far time and again the.ball was at the Llaaid'udno goal, until from a comer leek the ball w.as riushod to the jnouth of the goal, and a Llandudno player kindly ran and kicked it into the net. "St. David and Lloyd Gecirge," said Jenkins. "Did you ever see anything like that?" — Shortly afterwards the whistle blew for half- time. Score: Colwyn Bay two goals, Llandudno Amateurs none. On .resuming, it was evident that, the Llan- dudno Amateurs meant businieiss, for the forward line was reconstructed. "Quilie right," said Jenkins, "I always con- sidered that a weak 6i>ot," as one player waa substituted for another. Then the tussles re- commenced, and1 up and down the field the ball travelled; tirat or,.o goal threatened, then the other, until Jenkins se-emed to get tired, and as hd furtively looked Li his watch, he remarked "A liuei open football fielal tihis, and the turf, sir, all sand, very bt-e footing," and) ho as- sumed an air of iridiiToi ^.noe. The crowd began to trickle away, and as there was nosigni of a score for Llandudno Jenkins became silent. Both teams made 3trermous efforts divrirk- the last few minutes, but no further gteal was scored. After the referee had blown the whistle and we were teaming- the field, I asked Jenkins what he thought osf tho gamo- ■'Rotten, sir; 'nbouiutwljr rotltan," replied Jenkins.
