I Some Welsh 11 Stars-" W. MEREDITH, MANCHESTER UNITED, I was the "star" artiste in to-day's match. He ig getting a very old stager, having been born in 1874; but he is still the best outside- right winger playing to-day. He was early secured by Manchester City, and his history from then until the present day is such common property that any lengthy reference to his career is unnecessary. E. PEAKE, ABERYSTWYTH. I Ernest Peake, the centre half, is a native of Aberystwyth, and has played regularly with the town team since he was a boy of fifteen. During the whole of this period he has been one of the most whole-hearted and hard-working players that it has ever been the good luck of any club to possess. He first came into prominence in this season's trial match at Wrexham, where he was generally acknowledged the best half on the field. He was then selected to assist the Welsh Amateurs against the English Amateurs at Stockport, where he again distinguished him- self, and it was his masterly display on that occasion which secured him his cap against Ireland to-day. He understands the half-back position thoroughly, and is quick in a-ttaci; and defence. He is never tired, and what he lacks in- weight he makes up in pluck and speed. In Mid-Wales there is no oentre-hal' to compare with him. TOMMY DANIEL JONES, ABERDARE, I is an Aberaman lad, and was born there 22 years ago. He initiated his brilliant career by playing for the Aberaman Corinthians, which was a smart junior organisation. Pre- sently he joined the now dwiunct Aberaman team, and in the meantime became a mem- ber of the Abrdare Eleven, which was then, captained by the great Fatty" Wedlock, whom he vice-captained. 'Catching the eye of the Notts Forest. officials by his play in the White and Stripes inter-trial match, he was induced to sign amateur forms for the crack Midland First. Leaguers, having pre- viously refused yery tempting offers from other first league clubs, -ae figured in the first team on many occasions, and under- studied A. Grenville-'Morria for two and a half seasons. Owing, to an accident to his back at Gainsborough, he returned to Aber- aman. At the beginning of the present sea- son he accepted the captaincy of the Aber- dare Eleven on its birth. He has played in three Welsh Cup finals and three Welsh inter- trial matches, while he was reserve to inter- national honours when he was eighteen years of age. Mr. Jones is going in for the legal profession, and is articled to Mr. William Thomas, solicitor, Aberdare. HORACE BLEW, WIIEXIFAM. Horace Blew is the famous Wrexham amateur, whose position is left back. He is one of the most popular members of the team, and has in his time rendered yeoman service to Wales at Soccer. He played for the Welsh Amateurs against the Englishmen recently. He has played for the national team several times. JEFFREY JONES, LLANDRINDOD WELLS, is the new Welsh back. He is regarded as a very fine player, and did exceedingly well for the Welsh Amateurs against England at Stockport recently.
