I bp;. t ng \1"j5ip -— -P- Sc::<r.ui Lt Co:.c: tcn. The First eleven had an open date for last Saturday, having failed to arrange a fixture for that date. Stradey was therefore left at the disposal ot the tennis enthusiasts, as the Seconds journeyed to Gowerton to fulfil the return engagement with that team. Tho Llanelly men took the field with the l'ixed intention of avenging the severe defeat sustained at Stradey some weeks back, when the visitors ran out easy winners a wicket and 55 J:¡!ls-U4 lor 9, against 89. The team was the same as that which beat Pontardulais at Stradey the previous Saturday, with the exception that a trial was given to Harry Griffiths. Jack Richards and W. P. Williams commenced operations for Llanelly, facing the bowling of L. Richards and Tern Morgan. "Jack," for once, did not rise to expectations, being smartly stumped by Davies off a delivery by Richards after he had only just broken his "duck." With the arrival of Griff Rowe to pertner W. P. Williams, things began to look rather black for the home men, as both batsmen soon settled down and set about punishing the bowling in no un- certain fashion. "Rowe was the first to bo dismissed, a delivery by Tom Morgan beating him, but not before he had knocked together a very useful 35. Harry Paton the next comer, was also beaten by the same bowler after making 5. Wil- linms continued to hit away merrily, and was not disposed of until he had com- piled a brilliant 59, which included three sixes and four 4's. At thi3 stage a very big score seemed not at all unlikely, but a few "ducks" were registered by the succeeding players. Fred Williams, how- ever, provided further opposition to the bowling, and bzi(i made an invaluable 21, comprising two sixes, two 4's and a single, before ho was caught. Of the re- maining players Tom Hopkins "chimed" in" with IS, and Harry Griffith justified his inclusion in the team by carryng out bis bat for 13. The innings closed for the respectable total of 159. Tom Morgan bagged the honours in bowling for the home team. capturing 4 for 46, whilst E. Thomas came a good second with 4 ior 53. The Gowerton innings opened in pro- mising style, with Ben Davies and W. T. Thomas as partners. The former hit about him with rare gusto, and seemed a certainty for the half-century when he was clean bowled by T. M. Phillips, his innings realizing 41. Thomas was dis- missed by Paton after scoring 13. E. Thomas and E. Davies provided a gfcod third wicket stand, the former making 15, and the latter 23. None of the re- maining batsmen gave much trouble to Paton and Phillips, and an interesting and closely contested game ended in a win for LlnncHy by 11 runs, the home  tenm making 14?. H. Paton proved to be the most suc- cessful bew'cr :v.e visiting side, taking 5 for 56, and T. M. Phillips also showed good form. averaging 4 for 47. By the way, Claude Warner has been reen down at the nets lately. Should he turn out, lie will doubtless prove a great acquisition to the First eleven, especially ill the bowling line. Roderick's XL To judge by their record to date the Roderick team are certainly going strong this season. So far, nine matches have been played, six of which have been won, two lost, and one drawn. The two re- verses were sustained at the hands of Llangennech and Kingsbridge. The Club is unfortunate m not being in passession of a ground of its own. In consequence of this, cf course, all the matches have to ho played "away." j On Saturday, Morriston provided the i opposition, and were defeated by the visiting team by 64 runs. the scores being Roderick's 9G; Morriston 32. T. J. Hopkins hit up a valuable 25 for his side, whilst in- the bowling line Arwyn Daves mot with great success, 1 capturing no less than five wickets for 13. John Res also did well, taking three for 17. I Many of the old members have returned j from service with the Colours, but there are yet a few to be demobilized. The Club is now waiting for the release of all j its members, the eliief idea at present being to keep the team going until they j are all returned, and then look out for a ground for next season. It will be of interest to know that T. L. Stewart, who, it will be remembered figured in the Llanelly team a few sea- sons ago, is now on leave from Ireland, nnd in all probability will be assisting Roderick's in their game against the County School to-day.
