Football "Capture." 10————
Football "Capture." 10 ———— LLANELLY'S NEW PLAYER- I MANAGER. tIRe is the greatest 'capture' that has fcver come to South Wales" said Mr. W T. Morris, chairman of the Soccer Club in summing up to a "Star" representa- tive, the qualities of Mr. Leavie, the new player-manager to the Club. At the early age of twenty, said Mr. Morris, our new player-manager won the English Gold Medal whilst playing for Barnsiey when they created a. sensation in the football world by winning the Eng- lish Cup. He then played for Bradford Park Avenue, and here again added to his reputation as a first-class player. He was on the short list of applicants for the position of manager of the famous Bury Club which he only lost by a small margin of votes. If the clubs of the country only knew that his services were available there would be hundreds after Lin-i. Ho is highly respected in football circles and his services should prove a decided acquisition to the Club. He will prrive in the town to commence his dut- ies next Wednesday. Other Signatures. The followers of the Soccer code will also be glad to learn that the signatures of James and Payne have been secured. James who assisted Llanelly in pre-war days was one of the first professional Soccer men throughout the whole of the country to join the Army. Soccerites in Llanelly will remember the wonderful games he played as full back in old clays. He could then be classified as second to none in Wales. With him and Blain at full-back the local team will compare with any one in South Wales as far as this position is concerned. Payne, who has figured in the team practically since its birth was the means of creating the first spark of interest in the game in Llanelly. His clever and tricky play and unquestioned ability as a goal getter gained for him the name of "Dapper-Payne. There is a galaxy of local talent avail- able, and the new manager will utilize this to the benefit of the town. It is a singular fact that the Soccer dub have been able to sign up all their old players. .This speaks well of the treatment meted out to players by the directors. It is a sign of mutual satisfaction and it augurs well for the future of the club in the town.

TREAT AT BRYNTIRION. I
TREAT AT BRYNTIRION. I All members of Bryntirion came in for a sumptuous spread recently, given by Dr. and Mrs. Evans upon the occasion: of the wedding of their daughter Gladys to Lieut Buckley. The members, young and old, perfectly enjoyed the good things provided. Later in the evening an exceptional humorous programme ar- ranged by ..Mr. David Owen, was thoroughly enjoyed by all. Mr. Davies, master, proved himself a capital chair- man, and Miss Lizzie Griffiths accom- panied in fine style. The usual votes of thanks and the singing of the famous ) duet by Messrs. Owen and' Griffiths- ) "The Parrot on the pear tree," termin- ated the proceedings. We understand that on the previous Saturday, Dr. and Mrs. Evans enter- tained their employees at Tyisha and the farms to a grand supper at the Thomas Arms.
Seconds vvrn at Pcntyberem. I I In striking contrast with the big score made by the Firsts at Stradey, was the rather small total of 61 registered by the Seconds at Pontyberem; which, never- theless, enabled them to gain a victory over the home team who responded with only 39. The Seconds batted first, and made a bad start, two wickets being down for 12. Griff Rowe and J. Howell made a good third wicket staiad, but after their dismissal a veritable rot set in, with the result that the side was disposed of for 61. Some excellent bowling was wit- nessed on the part of the home team, J. Davie& capturing 4 for 7, and Joe Thomas 2 for 5. With such a small score the visitors were rather dubious as to the final issue, but as it happened the Pcntyberem men never "found their feet." Not a single player managed to get into double figures, the highest total falling to "Mr. Extras," who augmented the 24 scored by 15. Rowe and Harry Griffiths, who shared the bowling for the Seconds, were seen at their very best, the former taking 4 for 15, and the latter r, for 9. RODERICK'S XI. I The Roderick eleven paid a visit to Morriston on Saturday to try conclu- sions with the Morriston 2nds, and easily defeated the home team by two wickets and 53 runs, the Roderick men hitting up 94 for 8 wickets, and Morris- ton responding with only 41. For this fine victory Roderick's have chiefly to thank Dan Davies and J. T. Nicholas in the batting line, both putting up a spirited display, the former com- piling 29 and the latter 18. Arwyn Davies (10), Wm. Williams (9), and T. J. Rees (9), also made useful additions to the score. The bcHing of the first- named was marked with great success, he capturing 4 wickets at the small cost of 11 runs, whilst W. Williams came second with two for 5. On Wednesday evening Roderick's added yet another victory to their list of successes, when they decisively beat Richard Thomas and Co.'s Office Staff to the tune of 66-23. The match was played on the County School ground. Arwyn Davies and John Rees shared the honours in batting for the Roderick XI, making 10 each, Dd. John Davies coming o good second with 9 whilst on the de- feated side Fred Griffiths was top scorer making 5. Some excellent bowlinrr was again wit- nessed, Arwyn DaviN taking 5 for 11, "ud John Rees 4 for 8. Were it not for the magnificent attack of H. G. Bowen, en the staff side, who took 5 wickets for 12, the Roderick score would undoubted- ly have been much heavier. County School Boy's Fine Display. I On Saturday last at the School field Swansea Grammar School suffered a severe reverse at the hands of the County School, being beaten by 4 wickets and 78 runs. G. Oram and D. J. Davies shared the bowling for the school and owing to their fine attack, the visitors were dismissed for 65. The School made a rather indifferent start, but afterwards picked up splendid- ly, and at 143 declared with 4 wickets in hand. The outstanding feature of the match was the magnificent display of Dd. John Davies at the wicket, who carried out his bat for 75. By this splendid innings "Dai John" ha,8 won the fine bat put up for competition by the Headmaster (Mr. G. J. Thomas) which was to become the property of the first player to attain the half-century. We take this opportunity of congratulating the winner on his fine achievement. The Committee of the Llanelly Cricket Club desire to thank the ladies of the tennis section for their kindness in pre- paring tea on the occasion of the visit of the Neath team lastSaturday.

Rugby Prospects. NEXT SEASON'S FIXTURE LIST. j The prospects of the Llanelly Rugby Club have never been brighter than they are to-day and not for many years have the committee been able to look forward tc a new season with a credit at the bank of £213. The debt which hung around the committee for a number of years has bl-en a bugbear to the progress of Rugby locally^ but thanks to the remarkable performances of last season's young team, for it can be positively described as "young," the committee were able to take over £3,000 in gate receipts. The remarkable successes of the Scar- le-ts against the Colonial and other teams von for them fresh fame in football circles. Record gates were witnessed and the enthusiasm displayed was typical of olden days. The majority of last sea- son's players will be available for the scarlet jersey next season again, with the exception of H. Graham Davies, the clever young centre, who has returned to his studies at Guy's Hospital, Lon- don, and the Rev. W. T. Havard, the popular international forward, who is shortly departing for Oxford. There are however, a number of clever young ex- ponents of the code in town,- and the new committee will have an excellent reser- voir of talent to draw upon. A few weeks' time will see the turnstiles at Stradey in use for the "Rugby crowd," and if last season's performances can be repeated Llanelly will become one of the strongholds of Rugby in Wales.

Sporting Gossip » Big Score at Stradey, I A strong Neath eleven, got together by Dr. Gwyn Thomas, visited Stradeyon Saturday to try conclusions with the Llanelly Firsts, and there took place one of the most spectacular games of the season. It was fully expected that the visitors would make Hubert John and his men go "all out" to register a vic- tory, but as it happened the home men were found to be in rare form. The Neath team took first knock on a perfect wicket, and started operations rather disastrously, four good men being out when the total was 25. A magnifi- cent fifth wicket stand was, however, made by J. D. Davies and Dr. T. F. Reason, who, by means of forceful play raised the score to 129 before they were separated. J. D. Davies hit up a lively half-century, included in which were two sixes and six fours, whilst Dr. Reason, in his 68, hit thirteen fours. Another useful score was soon forthcoming, Dr. Gwyn Thomas, as usual, contributing his share by means of hurricane hitting. In his 28 were three sixes and two fours. The remaining batsmen gave very little trouble, and the side was eventually dis- missed for the very creditable score of 185. I Lianally's innings. I It was felt that Llanelly would have I to go all the way to reach this total, but, as before mentioned, most of the bats- men had a day out. Captain John was seen at his very best at the wicket, and knocked up a fine 69, which included one six and nine fours. A none too promis- ing start had been made, two wickets being down for 22. H. E. Jones was un- fortunate in hitting the wickets in play- ing the first ball, and Percy Rees was beaten by J. W. Jones after he had made 17. Will Davies made a good stand, compiling 31, and then came the magni- ficent partnership of John and Warner, which yielded 82 ,runs, the score being taken from S3 to 165 before the 'skipper' was stumped by D. J. Reason. Dai Davies and Warner then took the score beyond that of the visitors, and at 203 the home men declared, with six wickets in hand. Warner distinguished himself with the bat, having exceeded the half- century by six runs before time was called. All the Llanelly men, with one excep- tion, managed to get into double figures. A special feature of the game was the high individual scores made on both sides. Two men succeeded in scoring over 60, whilst another two topped the half-centurv. Truly it was a batsman's day out. With two such big scores, the bowling average? of course, were not very good. Dai Davies, on the Llanelly side, and J. W. Jones for the visitors met with the greatest success, the former taking 5 for 50, and the latter 2 for 45.
