FOOTBALL TOPICS. I AMMANFORD v. AMMAN UNITED. This match wa s' played on the grouad of the United on Saturday last, before a record gate, and resulted in a win for Ammanford by one goal two tries to a dropped goal. The game was on' of the best I have seen played between the teams, and was entirely free from any of t k oce ugly incidents which often occur when xeighbouring clubs are in opposition. The game was pleasant to watch, and shews that t h ese teams are capable of giving a splendid exhibition when they choose. The first half was especially good, both sides playing clean football. The United forwt -Is, true to their repu- tation, played a fine izame. They were always on the ball and took,-t good deal of stopping. and had they been opposed by a weaker full- back than Leyshon their efforts might have achieved success. Their backs, too, tackled finely, especially in the first moiety of the game. The pick of a good pack were Mog Wil- liams, Rees Owen, and S. Jeremiah, whilst of the backs W. Rees, Lucas, and Mayberry Wi-lhams were the most prominent. The Ammanford forwards played a splen- did game, and gave their back* plenty of opportunities, but they were not quite up to the United forwards in the opem until the latter stages ot the grne, when they did finely. GII Edwards, Barrett, E. J. Thomas, and Will Evans were prominent, but the pack as a whole played well. Ike Fowler and Ivor Jones, as usual, played splendidly, and gave the backs numerous opportunities to score. George Rees sent thrills through the spec- tators with his strong running, and his efforts deserved better success. He played a great game, although closely watched. Abbot Griffiths also played fine football on the wing, while Jack Williams kicked and tackled in his usual style. His burst in the first half was .a fine effort. Wheelhouse did not do badly, but shoufd show a little more determination when going for the line. A feature of the game was the fine display of Jack Leyshon at full-back. He gave a faultless exhibition, his fielding, lucking, and stopping of the United's rushes being greatly admired. His goal kick from the touch line was a remarkably fine accomplishment. SPECTATOR.
