CRICKET. I -0- I SWANSEA BEAT LLANELLY BY FOUR [ WICKETS. I The first important match of the season by Llanelly was played at St. Helen's, a start being made shortly aiter mid-day. Llanelly won the toss, and went first to the wickets, Percy Rees and H. Howell opening the inn-1 ings, Creber and Maxwell bowling. Rees was quickly hoveled by Creber. Then Howell and Clough made a stand. Three wickets, were down by lunch-time. After the fall of the third wicket Clough and Cliff Bowen played remarkably good cricket, raising the score from 31 to 87 before the former was caught in the slips by Dr Cameron off Max- well, having made 43. Bowen afterwards batted well, but J. Bevan was the only man he could find to make a stand with him. After the departure of Bowen, as the result of a fine catch in the deep field by Morris, the Llanelly innings rapidly came to a close, the only noteworthy feature being a clever throw in by Jack Bancroft, which ran out H. John with the score at 143, to which the last wicket only added four runs. Swansea went in to bat about four o'clock, Bancroft and Percy Morris opening the inn- ings merrily, hitting Gee and Clough about all round the wickets. W. J." was out, however, this time, just before reaching his 50. M. E. White was well applauded for his innings of 32, and Stanley Rees further caused the score to mount, the Llanelly total being passed whilst he and Nicholls were in, Swan- sea having five wickets to spare. Stumps were drawn shortly afterwards, to enable the Llanelly players to catch the train, Swansea thus winning by four wickets and 23 rims. Scmes Llanelly.
