lFOOTBALL TOPICS. AMMANFORD v. AMMAN UNITED. I -1 11 Ammanford were opposed on. baturday last by Amman United on the Cross Inn Field, ,and were defeated by six points. However, although the United were a superior lot, the homesters played a good game. The visitors were excellently served by their forwards, who were considerably heavier than the home eight, and as a result the United's half-backs were given greater opportunities of demon- strating their ability, which they did to good effect. The United's three-quarters were a fine combination, and some excellent football was displayed by them. Owing to the sodden condition of the ground, and also the heavier forwards of the United, the local boys were fagged before the end of the game. W. Rees scored a good try for the visitors in the first half, which was not converted. In the second half, the homesters displayed some classy football, and at times had the best of matters. However, the question of weight had told its tale, and it was evident that they were opposed by a superior team. The United's forwards hee'ed the .bail with unfailing regularity, and the home backs were n.t given an opportunity to shine. Owing to the greasy state of the ball, the home full- back failed to hold, and the United, who were always on the alert, took advantage of th -j slip and got possession of the bail in mid- field, and W. I'horn- romped over with a clever try, which remained unconverted The result-Amman United, two tries; Ammanford, nil-is a fair indication of the merits of the respective teams. Roger Jones, who played on the wing for Ammanford, deserves special mention. He played an ex- ceedingly good game.
