RHYL'S HARD LUCK WITH CONNAHIS QUAY. Connah's Quay 2 Rhyl 1 Of lat43 a change has oome over football matters in Rhyl, and the committee have re- organised the team, but they were doomed, to be disappointed on Saturday in the selection they made with Connah's Quay. They had ar- ranged for half a dozen new players, but only four put in an appearance. It was ateo evi- dent in the first half that there were a few of the team who were not in their right places, but tins was corrected after the interval. The teams limed up fairly well to time as follows:— RHYL: T. Jones; W. H. Jones and M. Parry B. E. Hughes, F. White and R. Birch; Hornby, Frost, Gallagher, Harrison and G. Morris. CONNAIFS QUAY: Pierce; C. Hewitt and Peters; G. Davies,' F. Bennett and T. Lumley; £ Morris, Dodscji; A. Lunberg, A. Hewitt and Morgan. The opening stages of the game were of an even character, and eaoh side found the net in the first few minartes. but the goal, were dis- allowed for offside. Rhyl commenced to press, but Hewitt cleared beautifully. Dc-dson and B. Morris working the ball on the light, to be pulled up by W. H. Jones in fine style. The P, Yiaitors next had a run of the pressure, and the right wing at times was dangerous, but Harri- son and Morris played a dusbirlg game, and quickly transferred the play to the visitors' goal. Gallagher was well fed, and succeeded in forcing a corner, although they failed to convert it. Several attacks followed by the team, and during one of these Frost TURNED A SOMERSAULT in the mouth of the viators' goal as Pierce rushed out to save. and twisted it into the net. It was the finest goal scored on the Rhyl ground this season. The home side kept up the pressure, and Hornby next had a shot for goal, and feeding A. Lumberg that player went down the field, attended by G. Da vies and Dcxison. There was a neat bit of passing*, the yiartOTs keeping- the ball low. As a result of this combination Dodson scored a very easy goal, the bail passing between T. Jones'. legs. Both teams put in good work after this., and ead to end play was witnessed. From a fine attaok by Gallagher and Frost a penalty was claimed by Rhyl, but it was not allowed. A -Lunb,g transferred the play, and succeeded in forcing a corner, and as a result of the play in front of the home goal DodMn a-gain found the met with another easy shot. Play was exciting to the interval, and G. Morris had hard I* the ball striking1 the upright. The visitors ,wem leading 2-1 at the interval. Play restarted with the Rhyl team in changed positions. Harrison went to the outside right, Hughes full back, Frost centre forward, Gal- lagher inside rig'ht, Birch, centre half, Morris outside left, and White right half. It was evi- dent that the change was for the better, and -P,byl had all the play. They kept the visitors penned in their goal, and although shot after shot was sent in RhyJ oould not soore. At jeafit twenty tries wene made by the Ehyl for- Srards during* this half, but Pierce was too art. During- one of the attacks four shots in succession were SAVED BY THE VISITORS' CUSTODIAN. affiKied by Peters, who went to goal to help to save their charge. Splendid work was done by the home team, and the defence of Con- xvaJi s Qua.y was equaz,y good. Several narrow sha.ves were witnessed, the ball on one occasion just missing the gioal by an inch. Rhyl claimed two or three penalties, but none were allowed. Towards the close of the game the visitors' Wt wing broke away, and for ten minutes they did all the pressing but no further goals were soored. Connah's Quay were looky m winning- by 2-1, a game in which thev were decidedly the weaier team. NOTES. As to the players, T. Jone3 was a very poor goalkeeper, and it will not do for Rhvl to rely on him in the future. Had he been called upon to do one-third the work that Pierce had at his end the home side would have been let down badly. W- -H- Jones, a new-comer, was a smart player, and came in for repeated applause from Hie spectators. b Morris, Gallagher, Harrison, Froet and Hom- by pmyed wll, and Birch improved oonakfer- »rv m the seccod half. Connah's Quay had a brilliant goalkeeper in Pierce. More-an, A. i^nbeTg, and Dodson were the pick of the Tfiators.

Richarda.' Bangor: LLANWDNO: StaJlard; J. H. Jooea «nd Srn<JIZFns' Johnson and Pearson: J. Da« r Davie*, W. F. Cleave, R. I^avies, and J. Williams. CARNARVON: George Jones• H. Jones and aivan Hughes; Herbert Jones and Jack Wil- bams; J. Jones, Wj Land, Walter Jones; Tom Roberts and It. H. Roberto. The visitora won the toss and Brown was conspicuous bi the Opening stages. Land got gray, passed*to Walter Jones tod the latter to yam Robeita, who kioked too hand for th« left < ii t 11 \I wing to gather the ball. The homes tors' be- came aggressive and a shot by one of the visitors was intercepted by J. E. Williams. Carnarvon had the advantage, amd Stallard effected a good save from Tom Roberts. The home right com- bined prettily, but Cleave failed when in a splendid position. The homesters were dallying with the ball and were often too slow for their opponents. "Hands" against J. E. Williams brought re-li-of to the visitors who were hard pressed. Jimmy Williams did some brilliant work and beat four men in succession before centring to Cleave Who should have aoored easily, but dhot wicledy over the bar, muoh to the disappointment of the spectators. Land missed narrowly from a oantre by R. II. Roberts. Jones was penalised for a breach of the rules, and the visitors bad a warm time of it for a few minutes. STALLARD'S SAVE. "Hands" against Johnson raised the siege. J. E. Williaim put in a brilliant, drive, which was cleared after a bully near the goal. The Carnarvon men then aseumed the aggressive, but Tom Roberts just plnoed wide of the mark. A foul against the visitors gave them 8.11 anxious time, but Cleave had left his shooting boots behind, and again failed when well placed. Walter Jooea then did good work, and despatched a Ted-hot drive to Staliard, who saved magnifioeotJy at the exl)en-o of a corner, which was cleared. The Llandudno goal nar- rowly escaped through a mis understanding. The game became very fast, and Jim Wil- liams struck the post with a tine shot, the bail glancing behindr-a. lucky ex-ape. Jones saved splendidly from J. E. Williams and Johnson. Llandudno were having moat of the game, but fitaled to find the net. J. H. Jones was en- trusted with a freo kick, but shot over tho bar. J. E. Williams was playing a hard game, but was fouled when going strongly for goal. Ben Mor- ris shot wide from the ensuing free kick. The visitors pressed, but were pulled up for "hands," and J. E. Williams getting pa.seession forced a corner, which was cleared. The visitors' right wing dashed down, but were brought up for offside—a decision they scarcely relished. When Carnarvon appeared dangerous Stallard emerged from goal and cleared to "Dan Bach," who passed to his partner; the latter parted to Jim Williams, who dribbled well, centred to Cleave, but Jones partially cleared his shot. R. Davies rushed up and netted amid tremendous cheering. Hardly had the cheering died away when Tom Roberts dashed off, and beat Stallard with a. rising shot, the baJl glancing of the underside of the bar into the net. Jimmy Wiliianru was next to the fore, and forced another corner, which Cleave nearly headed into the net. Jones took a free kick, but the leather was charged down. Half-time: Llandudno 1. Carnarvon 1. SECOND HALF. On resuming play Walter Jones was soon away, but Johnson intervened. R. H. Roberts nearly spelt danger and centred, but again John son relieved with a huge punt. Dan Davies dribbled down and passed to J. E. Williams, who centred to Cleave, the latter failing to nego- tiate the ball. J. E Williams was playing an excellent game and forced a corner. Dan Davies was fouled just outside the aroa. J, H. Jones tried again with a free kick, and this time was successful, the ball passing through into the oor- ner of the net to the delight of the home sup- porters. R. H. Roberts, of Carnarvon, put in telling work on the right and often troubled the home defence. Tom Roherts caused a laugh by drop- ping Johnson. A foul against Jack Brown x onedl ominous, but Morris cleared just in time. Dan Davies was often in the picture and passed to his partner very neatly. The latter foroed seve- ral corners, but the Carnarvon oustodian saved two splendid drives from Bob Davies in afl many minutes. The home left centred eventually but he saver again. Cleeve got clear away, but he fell at tho critical moment, and G. Jones rushing out of his goal, saved in the nick of time. Llan- dudno simply toyed with the visitors but failed several times to reach the net. J. H. Jones con- ceded a corner, and after the scramble J. Jaw's, an the Carnarvon left, was fouled, and the goal had a narrow escape. Eventually Waiter Jer.es ran through and scored an excellent thus equalising matters. PFrARSON'S PERTINACITY. R. H. Roberts was a source of trouble to the homesters, but Pearson stuck to him like a leech. Jack Brown was hurt, but eoon resumed. End to end play followed. The homesters pressed hard but the visitors kioked out to clear their lines. Ck-eve finished a good movement by head- ing just wido of the mark Carnarvon then burnt away, and Tom Roberts was whisked off side, when in a dangerous position. WL Iter Jones then dribbled down and sent a terrific drive, but Stallard was on the alert add ele-ued well down the fie.1d. Walter Jones (gain got through When he was fouled by Jack Brown, but the ensuing free-kick was headed away by John- son. George- Williams receiving a neat pass then beat three men in his oareer i,,1 finished a few inches wide. A foul again>t DaJt Davies looked danger-cms but the home cV fenee prevailed. Jim Williams rushed away onoe more, and forced a corner, which was neatly plecccl-, but Carnarvon had. no difficulty in getting the ball a.way. The Ama-teurs had several fine 'tic opjx>rtunifcie3 to score the winning goal, and J. E. Williams, who had only the custodian to beat, shot wide of the mark, to the dis- gust of the home supporters. Jim Williams dribbled weil on the Llandudno left wing, a.nd aft-er putting in good work succeeded in forc- ing a corner off Jack Williams, the Carnarvon half-back. The corner kick was well plaoed, and a seximimage took place in goal-mouth, the ball appearing to be entering th,e net every minute. The home spectators urged on their "pets" vociferously, but all further attempts were void, and the close of hostili- ties was called before long. Final: Llandudno, 2; Carnarvon, 2.

FESTINIOG Y. HOLYHEAD. THE QU ARRYMEN'S WELL DESERVED VICTORY. (By "Rioando.") Featiniog: — 3 I Holyheauf j I lue payers- ware lmed up at NMrborough Park, Blaenau, la^t Saturday, under the auspices of Mr Williams, Degunwy. The referee aliowwi no dehy before the oommA of the play. Some of the homesters were not prepared for thci promptitude, and they had to 00unroanoo hcetilrties abort of h&ods. T teams were composed as fcJiows:— FESTINIOG: Bob Smith; Tom Hugboe and M. J. Morris; W. H. Williams, Kiimear, and Jim XZoyd; Bob Roberts, John iHughee, R. C. Daviea, W. R. Owen, and W. J. Penny. HQLYHEAD: Bob Owan!; Djjak Efflia and Rowland Williams; Lewis Jones, W T. Jones, and P. JoawB; L. McsNafl, H. O. Jones, MoseJey Jones, R. C. Jones, and Raohard imm The viators had with thorn Moseley Jones, late of Portmadoc, and a very wedl-known in- side right player, and oated for ciever rushes and fine dribblings. He now played centre forward, but did not appear in his usual ele- ment. The ihomestere were ramus Bangor Jones ajxi W. J. Hughes, two of their leadlug players, and they had to rehf on their reaerree. The instant tOO ball was in play the Quarrymen, though short of pfcayers, became very aggroo- siw, mostly on 4be left, where the veteran Poanj waa the wiqjfer. In about a minute from the start Penny swept the defence aside and netted the baiil. This was acknowledged by the crowd with doafenirxg cheers. The very next momerrt, Penny was again on the &Uwk, and. aanosc put up aiKXiber point. The visiting forwards, WOlk.i.rEg' on ttatar pivot, pressed hard. In a scrimmage Moaetey ookidied with Smith in gaalmouah. Smith was wind-cd for a manure or so..Richard Jones, the vissifcinig outtidoo left, was dex.t.c!r<ltu in his movemerrts, and' frequently swerved round the home forwards, but could net goo rid of Kamear and M. J. Morris. W. R. Owen pushed his attention on the Cybi rear- guard, and was within an ace of tumbling" the iortrees down. The home outside right rounded' the ajd-vajice guard of the visitors, and tried weiii to got in. Bob Owen, however, cleared well. Jim Uoy-d. gotcinjg' jxxasesjion, rm-t Bob Owen again on tnai, and; Bob "bobbed" the loather nicely into saiety. The Oybir.ties swept smartly towards trie i^'estinicg- citadel, and tomg-h p.-ay ensued. R. C. J-oncs and Richard1 Jones dr^Jayed soni-D fine dodges and tactics, but Ktrtinear and T. 11-aghes mastered* them com- pletely. Then the home forward lime moved bodily towarld-i the visiting goal" and some shots were seat in which were successfully returned by Bob Owen. Penny, ever aleit on the wintg, stremrusly fought to ciraumvent Dick Ellas and Rowland, Williams, but could not do so; aixl Kinnear, backing the forwards, actually was witthin aji iacili cf gtettiing the ball into the net by means of skyers. Eventually a furious onslaught was made by the Quarrymen on the Holyhead goal. McNeil, however, collared the sphere and dashed- up the liooc.. for tho home goal He supported by H. O. Jones. AloseJey and R. C. Jones, and a stubborn fight took place at very close cpuanters. W. H. Williains, T. Hughes, and Kinneax stood the attack splcndladly and succeeded in froei-ngl their territory of danger. Then R. C. Davies rushed down the field, dodung ius opponeiutfli, and in spl.te of the odds against him scored the second points for the homesters. At the close of the first half the score stood: Festmiog 2, Holyhead 0. The .second half was opened by the visitors bei-iig foruiSxi very near Ute penaity area, free kick ended in a corner lor the vJsiters. Alixi:i«.d pAy ensued, rooulting in the visitors cornering their opponents very tiglitly. Moeoley, it, C. Jonfus, AlcjNeil and P. Jones iought mag- rulioonciy for an oj>ening. Masters now looli^d desperate for the homesters? but W. H. W lhtiaans, M. J. Moriis and Kranear retaliated, and the next instant found the Cybiite fortress in iminnnjenit cbanigier. John li'Uignes and K. C. Joses and W. R. Owen, gTirnly in carneotmteihed on the deienoe. Bunt in tiiio niak of time W. T. Jones and Dick Ellis made a correct, move, and the si-iwation Wa.3. saved. Then Kinnear, who was a little bit of a forward occasionally, sent a stinging shot to the goalie's hiatxts—bu-t not further. A comer ensaied.. In the rneilee that followed tibe corner kick, Bob Robetrts v»as hurt, and I.,klay stopped for a wlnle. Before long, however, Bob was in tiie figiiting hne agiain. Had the home defence be-en 100. strong the visitors would have brought down tne i'ewbm.og etroiig'iiold. Kinnear was simpiy spieiKliid. rot far from 50 yeaxs of a.ge it is .no disrespect to the other piayers to say that Kinnear was by far tlie beet player on the field.. The visitors were friuscj-aued in their splendid lepeatod attempts to oomfaej the home defence, and the next moment they had to ru-sh to protect their own fortress, which was almost falling into the hands of W. P. Owen, R. C. Davies and their comrades. A kiok out for safety stopped the attack From the throw out Mot>ei!ey got one of his favourite chances, and rushed witii all speed towvards the home goal. For a oeoond or two he was tackled, but, by fine dodges and counter moves, he overcame ail obstructions and netted the leather. The next moment the visitors on-ce more penned up their opponent, in spite of all attempts to wriggle out of the corner. The excitement was intense, and the hostilities were very warm indeed. But W. H. Williams, Jim Lloyd, Kinnear, and R. C. Davies prevented tlie ball t'ouvihi.iig the air between the sticks, and finally a fine clearance was effected by Kinnear skying the ball to nudfiekl. Penny was there to receive it, and almost had the way open for the point. In the nick of time MoseJey and R. C. J ones out Penny's pretty moves short, and so stopped' Penny from making' mischief. But tho veteran was not going to bo disposed of in that fashion, and .he was -ajg-ain in oiose proxi- mi:t.y to the visitor?- goal. A scrimmage which loLlowed eaided in a penalty ogtoist Holyhead. Kinnear took the free kick, and sent in yucli a stinger that Bob Owen had not the g'boat of a chance to stop it, Tlie visitors played well, and yet they could not make no headwav The ry were in very good form.

STILL UNBEATEN. Pcnmaenmawr 5 I Llandudno Junction Res O I Great interest was taken in the Second Divi- sion League match, played at IJarwiudno Junc- tioni, on Sinturdav, when P-onmaerunawr were the visitors. Pe:nmacilmawx have so far re- tained their unibtoken record. It was evident from the shouts of encouragemenrt; which greeted the a,ppearanoe of the visitors that there were, if anything, more supporters of the Pe-nmammawr tkam than of the home eLem. The teams turned out as follows — LLANDUDNO JUNCTION RES.: Llew. Parry; W. E. Janes and George Williams; Walter Parry, Cordeiroy, and Evan Jones; T. Craven, D. Parry, Ernest Parry, Tommy Morgan, and Cheaters. PENMAENMAWR: -R. Lloyd; W. E. Hughes and H. Jones; R. Brown, J. Jones, arwl T. Jones; J. W. Lumt, A. G. Jones, R. Morris, T. Sloans, and Caleb Williams. Referee: Mr C. J. Thomas, Bangor. The Junction attacked vigorously in the first minute of the game, but W. E. Hughes, the Pcnmaenmawr right full back, cleared well. Penmaenmawr responded and got down. R. Morris put in a good shot, IJew Parry, the home goaibe, fisting out in grand style. The viitors got going, their forward" swinging the ball about in pretty fashion. Nevertheless, the final shot whiah came from Morris was more or less a sur- prise amd it beat Llew Pariy all tho way. This early success, in about 15 minutes from the start, put the visiting players amd spectators on good terms with themselves. End to end play followed and both sidles secured corners which, however, proved fruitless. On one occasion the Pemraaenmawr men gtot thtoug% and Llew Parry brought off a magnifi- cent save at full length on the ground, just getting the ball away from the foot of R. Morris. At length thePeamnaetmiawT men broke through all opposition and there was a melee in front of the Junction goal. The home goalie, Llew Parry, stopped a ground shot from Morris, but only succeeded in putting tihe leather out to the left and Caleb Williams centred, Stoame putting tire ball into the net. It waa -an exooc-diingly clever goal, Sloazie being wdth his back to the Junction RVxtl when. be got the leather in the rigging. Play was at the Pannmbenni-awr end of the field when the interval arrived. Half-time: Pennmonmaawr 2, Llandudno Juno- tien Reserve 0. A COSTLY MISTAKE. R. Morris soorod the third goal for Penmaen- mawr soon after the resumption of hostilities with a fine shot, which Llow Pfarry had no chance to Eave. The Penmaenmawr men were having the better of the game, and Caleb Wil- liams let in a fine centre, which Parry saved at the expense of a fruitless comer. A few tniinntoa later Caleb Williams got in another centre which I E. Jones, the home right full-back, ought to have cleared easily, but he missed his kick, with tin- result that the ball came across to R. T. Jones, who had the simplest task in the world to regis- ter No. 4 for the visitors. Llew Parry had no earthly chance of saving, for Ritchie was only about a yard from the goal line. The Junction men having forced a fruit- less cornier at tihe other end, the visitors again ran up, and blefw. Parry saved 'brilliantly, throwing himself full length on the ground to a shot from Cid-ob Williams. Whilst he was on the ground, however, Sloane, the visiting inside-left, placed tho leather in the net. A penalty was awarded the Junction eleven: one of the Penmaenmawr men hamd- Idmg within the pecaail/ty area; but Ernest Parry, who was entrusted with the kick, iplaood the ball high over the baT. Final: Penmaenanawr, 5; Llandudno Junc- tion. 0. Peiumaemmawr, thus, preserved their re- cord of 'being unbeaten in ØiDY of their anatdhes this soaeoji.

The teams were: BANGOR: Ted Owen Hwfa Williams and D. J. Thomas; Arthur Owen, H. J. Davies, and Wm. Parry; Rowlands, R. Jones, Brown, Fui^b&r, and Harry Evans. UNIVERSITY COLLEGE: Dan Thomas; Brock and H. Ll. Williams; H. M. Owen, Wright, and Arthur William Wilfred Griffiths, E. Thomas, Hill, T. Griffiths, and W. G. Jones. Referee: Mr E. Lloyd Williams. The Bangor players, of course, were late arriving on the field, and they opened wdhh ten men. The first player to spring into pro- mineace was Hill, who ran along the field, but delayed shooting, with the inevitable re- sult—.he was robbed. At the other end, R. Jones looked like getting through, but H. Ll. Williams clevorly robbed him, and them Harry Rowlanxls seat bohÜId. R. Jones opened Bangor's scoring account from short range. A bombardment of the 'Varsity goal was maintained, but thero was very little sting in the shooting of the home forwards. Wilt. Griffiths sped along the right wing, closely pursued, by II. J. Davies, who cap- sized him in the danger zone. The 'VARSITY EQUALISED through the medium of Hill, at least this player landed the ball into the net, but the credit be- longs to Wilf Griffiths, who diddled D. J. Thomas and fired across, H. J. Davies in trying to clear shooting into his own goal. Ted par- tially saved, but Hill completed the move. In the next few minutes Wilf. Griffiths had another pot at the Bangor goal. Several minutes were wasted in trying to recover the ball from a roof adjoining the ground, and eventually it was re- covered by means of a broom. Directly the game was resumed Wright had a pop at the Bangor goal from long range, Ted saving in his usual smart, manner, but E. Thomas nearly beat him. Brown scored Bangor's second goal from close range, Rowlands being responsible for the pre- liminary work. The next item of note was Harry Evans trying to smash the 'Varsity cross- bar. Half-time: Bangor 2, 'Varsity 1. SECOND HALF. In the second halt Wright opened hostilities with a long ranger which caused Ted Owen to hop, but ho cleared. At the other end Harry Evans crashed the ball behind. Tommy Griffith and xiill had a hand in the 'Varsity's equaliser, the former engaging the full back whilst Hill hooked the ball into the net. The best shot of the match was sent in by Wilf. Griffith. Directed from quarter ground and close to the touch line, the ball swung across the goal mouth and almost deceived Ted. At the other end Brown fired in, and the 'Varsity custodian apparently turned round with the ball when on the goal line. The retfereo did not allow a goal, but it was a near thing. A nasty accident befel R. Jones, who, tackled by Brock, fell on the side of his neck, but he resumed and SOORED A BEAUTIFUL GOAL. Brown centred from the flag post, and, lower- ing his head, Jones timed his effort to a "T" amd the ball flew over Dan Thomas' head into the net. Directly afterwards Rowlands regis- tered No. 4 for Bangor, tho custodian clean misjudging the ball as it went elowlv into tho not. It wa3 Bangor's game, and it lookod odds on Furber scoring, but tho ball went behand. Wright wa? a host in himself at centre-half, sending in speculator after speculator with un- erring atim. Both sets of forwards pinned their faith on Jorrg drives, but they did not exert themselves very much. Final: Bangor 4, 'Varsity 2.
NOTES. To fill a gap in the fixture card, tlie Bangor Committee arranged! a fixture on Saturday between the 'Varsity and a mixed city toum. The crowd was a very small one, and the enthusiasm was below zero. The game is scarcely worth describing, bemig practically devoid of exciting incidents. Still, the goals were well obtained, and the prelminary work was ailso good, but the players did not over-exert themselves. Hill, the 'Varsity pivot, a new player, made a good show, and Owen, the half-back, caught' the eye. Arthur Williams was re-initroducod into the Varsity team, and: merited hb inclusion. The 'Varsity were minus the services of C. H. Jones, who was doing duty for another club.
NORMALS v. GLASINFRYN SWIFTS A BRISK GAME: DEFEAT OF THE VILLAGERS. (By "Verax.") Despite a sodden ground and occasional show- ers and a heavy wind blowing diagonally across the pitch, keen play was witnessed when the w-I Glasinfryn Swifts met the Normals last Satur- day at Ffriddoedd. Mr Oscar Lloyd, of Ban- gor, drew up the teams in the following order:- NORMALS: D. T. Evans; W. C. Lord and Walter Evans; A. Gibbon, Hannaby, and J. E. Hughes; Hopwood, Pepper, Mr M. H. Daviea, Rogers, and Worry. GLASINFRYN: H. Hughes; J. P. Jones and J. Thomas; G. Whitehead, C. Pierce (captain), and T. Jones; W. D. Thomas, H. Edwards, F. Pierce, R. Thomas, and E. Davies. W. D. Thomas opened up matters with an unsuocssf ul shot at the Normal goal. The homesters, after good play, retaliated, Rollers ruahinig up and sooring the first goal. The wind favouring1 the Normals, they took full ad- vantage of it. Mr M. H. Davies was conspicu- ous right from the start. The Swifts forced a oorner, but nothing resulted, though the Gks- infrynites were playing1 exoe4eding4 well. F. Pierce rushing up unopposed, Evans ran out and nicely cleared. Rain now began to fall in torrents. Mr Davies a.nd' Peppor combined prettily before the visitors' goal, the billet being i-d by inches. Rogers immediately after- wards scored his second goal, which Hughes, though he went well down to his work, was gurte unable to save. The Swifts attacked again, but were repulsed, Hughes bringing off a neat save from Hannjatby. Gibbon headed goal wards, but his "reach" was not quite great enough. The Normal halves and forwards were shapinrgo up first rate. The Lnfrynites went all the way, but seemed to have rutbor a weak team. After F. Pierce and E. Davies bad

LLANRWST COUNTY SCHOOL v. HIGHER GRADE SCHOOL, COLWYN BAY. Played at Gwydr Park, Uanrwst, on Satur- d.ay. The visit;iiygl team attacked' at once, one of the home 'backs in attempting- to clear placing the leather in his own net. The sub- sequent play until the end of the firat half was very even, although the visitors, through their weight, had an advantage. During the secoybd half, the homesters had th.c batter of the game, and John Dower Jones equalised from a free kick. Before the end of the garme, however, Leake gave Colwyn Bay the lead with a good goal, which was immediately followed by another point by G. Jones. Fin.a,' Higher Grade School (Colwyn.

NOTES AND COMMENTS. LLANDUDNO JUNCTION SPARKS. The Junction Reserves were fairly beaten on their merits on Saturday at the Junction to the tune of five goals to nil. The victors were Penmaenmawr, tho invin- cibles, for they have not been beaten yet thria season. Llew Parry played a remarkably olever game between, the posts, and but for his aj.'ity asd skill the score would have been heavier. With regard to the rest of the <lefenders, the score speaks eloquently. 0 0 Amongst the forwards, Ernest Parry was the only man who did anything worth mentioning with, perhaps, the exception of Tommy Morgan, who also played a hard, bustling game. » W. Parry madi3 his re-appearance on the foot- ball field after a long absence, and he was evi- dently out of practice. The Penmaenmawr team plimyed an excellent game, and it will take a clever eleven to lower their colours in their present form.
HOCKEY. UNIVERSITY COLLEGE v. PENRHOS COLLEGE. Played on Saturday, at Bangor. ReeuZH: University College (Ladies), 7; Ponrhos Col- lege, Cblwyn Bay (Ladies), 3.
COLWYN BAY v. STRADBROOK PRESTATYN (MIXED). The return matcih was played on the Codwym Bay ground on Saturday. The Colwyn Bay eleven started briskly, amd it was mot long before Femy hough soared from a lovely pass from Sutcliffe. After soma good hard play tho visitors sirooeaded in soaring, !but Fernyhaugh, from another spksndid j>ass from Sutcliffe, eoon retaliated. In the second half the home side seemed to lose grip on the g.ameamd apt to get in each otters way. After some txickyplay Femyhough scared the third goaJ for CoJ wyn Bay, but from a cornier awarded thd visitors they scored with a. splendid shot. For the ■rest of the gaone the Bay eleven pressed, but wer-o unsuccessful, whilst the visitora had a few dangiaroiis ruahee on goal. Wihesn time was caillied the score WM; 3—2 in favo-ar of CoLwyn Bay. Hie ground, which was the cause of some humorous'incidents, was very soft. The Colwyn Bay forwards with the exception of Femyhough ajid G. Jones were not sufficiently alert, and the backs wiere not very reliable. Fernyhough and SaitcLiffie were the pick of the home side, both working- Ircurd. Team:—Goal, Miss G. Maddock; backs, T. Oakley, J. Holmes; haif-backs, Miae Cross, F. Sutcjiffe, Miss M. PoUit; forwards, W. Harrop, Miss E. Poilit, F. Feamyhough, G. Joaes, M,iss Harrop. Referee Mr H. V. Doughty Davies.

cannoned against the goalkeeper, Hughxe Ed. wards netted, but the goal was diallowed. Both teams struggled gamely, but neither could im- prove before. HaM-timo: Normals 2, Glasinfryn 0. On rs-commcnoemcnt the Normals again as- sumed the aggressive, standing round the Glas- infryn goal they sent in shot after shot, Hughes saving magnificently on each occasion. Hughes was down several times, but always retained pos- session. A spasmodic piece of combination, en- abled the Swifts to clear their lines and they forced a corner which Evans fisted out. The Normals sweeping down the field, a fine piece of combination resulted, Charlie Pierce accidentally sending the ball into his own goal. The Swifts bucked' up, and Frank Pieroe soared a well- earned goal. The Swifts pressed smartly, but Evans cleared his lines. Davies was now seen to be oareering away towards the op- posite goal, but E. Davies raced across and intercepted nicely. Presently Rogers rushed up and scored his fourth point. W. C. lord was evi.deatly in form. The visiting backs and halves o,io showed up well in their defence. W. D. Thomas tried a shot but it new high. A shot from the kft wing was brilliantly deflected from its course by Evans but a oorner which proved fruiltess, had to be conceded. ilughie Edwards raced the whole length and scored with a rising shot. End to end play followed. It would bo in- vidious to single out individuals from the Swifts' team when they all played so gamely; but Hug-hie Edwards and C. Pierce must be men- tioned as the "men of the hour." For the Nor- mals the same might be said. The whole team played so unitedly that it is difficult not to generalise. The forwards went with a swing, the halves fed them well, and the backs and the goal- keeper were safe. Rogers and Mr Davies, Hantnaby and Lord might be said to be the oick of the lot though. There was no backing cn either side, the game was as brisk during the closing stages as in the first half, a very well- contested and spartirigly-playod match, ended with t'he score:— 1 Normals 4, Glasinfryn 2.
