FOOTBALL NOTES. ILLANELLY, 1 converted goal, 1 try; ABER- AVON, 1 converted goal. Saturday's fixture at Aberavon produced some very spirited football, and a more varied -and sparkling display has not been seen on the ground this season, as bright and pretty incidents of play kept excitement at fever heat right throughout. All three tries scored were splendidly secured. The opening one by W. -Jonas, the Aberavon centre, was very smartly -got, and was a piece of capital opportunism. The irony of fate came shortly afterwards, when from some open forward work Pandy Rees went through in great style and scored for the Scarlets. This Aberavon player had filled a vacancy in the Llanelly ranks, and a rattling good forward game lie played, al- though his usual position is full-back or centre three-quarter. Following this came the masterpiece of the .Illatch, when Dai Lloyd, the Scarlets' inside half, brilliantly went over on his own in per- Ifect fashion. Taking the ganieonthe whole, there was very little to choose between the respective • -organisations, but LIanelly just about deserved their victory. On. the Llanelly side Beynon did only fair at full-back. Of the. three-quar- ters Willie Arnold, Harold Thomas, and the new man, Evan Davies, did well. Dai Lloyd played a great game at half, and was well. partnered by Ivor Jones. Of a sturdy and use- ful pack TrJm Evans, Watts, Phillips, and Pandy Rees were always conspicuous. -0- LLANELLY II., 14 points; BRITON FERRY, I nil. It would be unfair to take the result of this match as the relative strength of the two teams, for Briton Ferry went to Stradey with .several players short, though they were fortu- nate in securing good substitutes at Llanelly. "On the day's fornI, and as the teams were composed, the Seconds held the upper hand throughout, but more especially in the second half. Up to the interval only one try had been scored, J. Evans putting on three points for Llanelly Seconds. In the second half W. -Jones kicked a. goal from a. penalty, and Marsh and D. J. Walters scored a try each for the home team. The Seconds would have bad a I -greater lead were it not for the stern defence of Wyman and Edwards. jBAYCLIFFE (SWANSEA), 3 tries; ORIENTAL I STARS, nil. The Oriental Stars gave a. very poor display I against Bayclifte (Swansea) at Stradey on 'Saturday. Throughout the encounter the visi- tors were in the ascendency, the display of the homesters being of a very low standard. Xjrlyn Davies, the homo custodian, dislocated his shoulder early in the game, and had to Tetire. -0- The Llanelly R.F.C. Committee have done well to allow a, game at Stradey on Saturday next, after the game between Llanelly and Pontypool. No doubt, there will be a large <Towd of junior enthusiasts present to witness the struggle between Bryncaerau (cup winners, second division)* and the Halfway Wallabies, who have challenged tllem. -0- A benefit match for the player who was in- jured in the trial match at the Dimpath is about to be arranged. -0- o The Llanelly League are awaiting the deci- sion of the Swansea League with regard-to the date for the League game. Llanelly have offered Ajril 30th. The Llanelly League team -is to be selected on Saturday night next. The suggestion that an hour's sports should be arranged before this League encounter is to be brought up at the next meeting.
