NORTH WALES ALLIANCE. DIVISION I. CAERGWRLE V. RHYL. Played at Caergwrle on Saturday. The homesters won ttio toss, but the advantage of the wind availed them nought. A. Jones headed in the first goal for the visitors within five minutes of the start. Rhyl liel) the homesters at bay and crossed over leading by the only goal. T. Ashcroft added a second and J.

The visitors won the toss and quickly ran down the field and it looked for a time, as though the home team would have to assert themselves in defending their goal. The ball was kept in the centre for 10 minutes and then a fine pass from 6. Evans to Lloyd would have borne, fruit had it not been for the splendid save by the CbirY goalkeeper. Here Some nice passing and head- ing by the Chirk team was witnessed with the N. suit that they passed their opponents in rapid sue. cession and from a corner kick Ingman headed the ball into tha net. Ac-refair ffelt the sting of the visitors' success and precsed hard for a considerable time and, from a nice pass by J. D. Evans, Butterton scored, thus equalising. Interest seemed to bestir IAtill teams from now on and good! play was in evidence, the centre-forwards1 of Chirk in particular showing good! work. Pearce suddenly sprinted down the field passing his opponents easily and passed the J ball over to Ingman who, shooting too high, lost to Chirk what was an open goal., The home team got hold of the leather and, with smartyess, passed it up the field. Joul against the visitors gave the home team a good chance to score, being in the mouth of the goal, but splendid) defence of the Chirk goalkeeper saved the situation. Chirk worked hard to surpass their score and although Pearce and Conde played a gOlJo,1 game by feeding their men well they did not achieve their object and at half-time the result was one goal each. Resuming play, the home team, realising their opponents' strength, put energy into the game and ware fot some time within an ace of scoring when, eventually, a corner kick for the home team cul- minuated in Sam Evans heading the ball into the net, thus making the homesters the winners by the extra goal. Not daunted, Chirk tripped away and, surprising the home team by the swift passes, they got well within reach of the home goal and Ingman would have equalised had it not been for too high a kick which sent the ball over the bar. Acrefair quickly got) the ball away, and a penalty kick against Chirk resulted in Sam Evans scoring the, i thirot for Acivfair. Chirk pressed hard for the next ten minutes, and after some fine pass-ing deceived the- horn", team in their sprinting with the result that Ingman had a clear field and scored for Chirk. Pearce receiving a nice pass from Joseph Jones passed it Biwiy over to Ingman and within three minutes h", added/the third for Chirk, thus equalis- ing. Acrefiur seemed determined to win and worked hawi to surpass the result, and on two occasions Butterton made beautiful shots but with no results, as also did J: D. Evaas. During the remainder of the game the home team were dangerous and had it not have been for the fplendid defence of Chirk goal- keeper they would undoubtedly have won. The final result being a drawn game of three goals each. Teams:— I Acrefair: 0 .Willfains John Edwards, Morris gughes., Precl Matthews, Sam Evans, T. Vaughan; Enoch Evans, D. Lloyd, W. Hayward, B.

r NORTH WALES ALLIANCE CUP. BRYMBO GREEN v. STANSTY, BRYMBO GREEN 4 GOAIS. 8TANBTY NIL. I (By E.P.J.) This mat-ch was played on the ground of Brymbo Gleelt on Saturday before a good gate. The ground was wet slippery and there Was a strong wmtt blowing across the field. Brymbo Green were the better team and they would have netted more goals but for thi excellent work of Whiteley, the visitors' custodian, whose work in goal was splendid. The homesters' defence was sound all through the' game. THE GAME. The- Wmesters won tho toss and elected to play up first.' T-her, was not much to choose between the teams in the first quarter of an hour, both putting up a strenuous game. After this the Green played the better game and began to press. D. Jones, the homesters' outside left, sent a1 lovely shot right across the visitors- goal and outside. After some tricky passing by the Green's forwards, Ben Jones, their inside left, sent a ground shot which beat the goalie and went info the net. j'or the laat ten minutes before half-time the visitors hadi: to play four forwards owing to H. Jones, wito was, injured, leaving the field 'for a short time. The whistle blew for half-time with the homesters leading by uiie 'goal. Onle8u..i80- j mediately, I>. Jones being fouled by R.

Ben Jones shortly afterwards had the ball again, ,and sent it at toe goal, the goalie biting to clear and the player running forward headed it into the net. After the centre Ben Jones had another clear shot in front, of goal but sent the ball flying over the bar. T. Jones, the homesters' centre-forward, obtaining possession, beat the baofcs and sent a ground shot at the extreme corner of the goal. After a little mid-field play, B. Jones, the homesterd centre-half sent a shot from about twenty yards from goal and scored. Joe Walker and D. Jones both made some good attempts to ireglster an- other goal, but the visitors' custodian was too good for them and the game en-dia-di with Brymbo Green the victors by four goals to nil.

FOOTBALL. I BIRMINGHAM AND DISTRICTI LEAGUE. WREXHAM FAIL AT BIRMINGHAM. I BIRMINGHAM 3 Goals. I WREXHAM "• Nil. (By X.Y.Z.). I Before the war the games between Wrexham and Birmingham were always keenly contest- f ed and the Welshmen did not always return j point-leas from St. Andrew's as they did on I Saturday, when the Small Heath brigade won by three clear goala. Earlier in the season Birmingham won the first match at Wrexham by a similar margin. The first defeat came at a time when the Wrexham rearguard was not equal to the requisite standard. The person- nel wae strengthened and the club began to ad- vance. Now the strain of a fairly strenuous programme of league and cup football appears to have told the inevitable tale. and in the game against Birmingham, on Saturday, the attack was lamentably weak from start to finish. The Welsh defenders stood up to their work in businesslike fashion, and, although the backs were occasionally uncertain under pressure, the half-back trio exercised a powerful influence on the proceedings, and gave the men in front ample support all through the game. But with the single exception of Jardine, who got off the mark without a second's delay, all the Welsh forward* were half a yard too slow. The •Birmingham defenders, who were a well-built set of players, intervened quickly, and not one of the Wrexham forwarcU^lemed to be cap- able of introducing that electric touch of dash and vitality so necessary to success in every jrame. The first half was pointless, and, .thanks to a few clever saves bv Boxley, the Midlanders had to cross over without a single goal to their credit. It was not long, however, before the Welsh goal fell. and as the visiting forwards failed to rise to the occasion, not- withstanding1 the sterling work of the half- backs, Birmingham gradually asserted their superiority and added two further goals. The Welshmen lost the match through the inability I of her forwards to Strike the bull's eye, and if matches are to be Won away from home during the second half of the season, there must be a marked improvement in the attack. If this cannot be effected by the present players, the only alternative is to introduce new blood. THE GAME. The game began early owing to the fear of I failing light. The ground was soft. and it waa fairly heavy going. The crown on. the play- ing pitch 1.still in evidence, but it is now much lower than in the old days. The Welshmen played with the wind in their favonu during the first half, but the advantage was more apparent than real, and the players did not seem to be troubled very much, goal kicks from each end reaching the centre line nearly every time. Birmingham made the first attack, and Thorn, who was well placed for scoring, shot over from short range. Wrexham then opened out the trame with an attack on the left wing. When the ball reached the centre good play fumbled it.. and only recovered possession in the nick of time. Matthias drove the ball back; to the goal, wht-re Owen declined a capital opening, shoot- ing just wide of the mark. Birmingham quickly returned to the attack. and Thompson displayed a nice turn of speed on the left, Boxley having to dash out to clear with a huge kick. The ball was quickly re- turned to the Wtlmh goal, George Davies cen- treing off the touchline. The centre passed over to the right. where Griffiths baulked Gib- son and conceded a corner. The flag kick was well placed, and Thompson headed in danger- ously, the ball being diverted bv a defender. The second corner was well placed, and the ball was cleverly turned into Voal by one of the left wingers. Boxley saving smartly. The Welsh custodian cut out a dangerous drive from Thom. who sought to take advantage of a centre from George Davies, who appeared to have taken the ball into touch before swinging it across the goal. Spirited work by E. D. Roberts in the Wrexham middle line led to a change in the course of the game, and Bert Goode worked a neat nosition and shot finely for the mair l Godfrey effecting a capital save. Noel Edward gave Owen another opening, but the Merseysi er was limping and did not ap- pear equal to the task. The Welshmen main- tained the pressure, and Frank Roberta dashed away on the left at a great pace. He eluded Wilson with great skill, but was not content. He hung on to the ball until an opponent came acroas and took it from him without much effort. A first time centre would have been particularly useful at this stage. A miskick by Trevor Jones let in Lawrence, who bore down upon the Welsih goal. Simpson closed with the forward and aucceasfully checked his pro- gress, Boxley being able to race out and clear with ease. Boxley brought off another fine save before the interval. and Sirilpson robbed Thompson in brilliant fashion after he had brushed aside the Wrexham right back. Off- side frequently prevented the Wrexham for- wards from mating headway, and the extreme wing men were pulled up on quite half-a-dozen occasions. Just on the! interval, Birmingham played well enough to deserve a goal, but Box- ley brought off a clever save, and after clever work by Gibson and Binks, George Davies had a scoring shot charged down in the mouth of • the goal. Crossing: over f on terms, both teams played with determination in the opening stage of the second half. The ball travelled from goal to goal, and it was clear that the first goal scored would probably decide the issue. Then Wrexham inside forwards were indecisive, and the only spirited work was performed by Jar- dine. who buffet through the Birmingham de- fence at top speed and drove the ball against the goal post at express speed. When Birming- ham attacked they were more successful. A series of long passes initiated by Geo. Davies, kept the Wrexham backs on the move, and after clever combination on the .right wing, Gibson closed in and scored with a fast low cross drive. A clever pass by Goode, enabled, Jardine to outdistance his pursuers and to finish with a perfect centre, but Godfrey was on the spot and the ball was fielded in magnificent fashion. The Welsh half backs played with great determination and skill, but they could not infuse a similar spirit into the forwards, with the result that Birmingham gradually gained the reward of constant pressure on an overworked defence. Thompson broke through when Trevor Jones miskicked, and scored an easy goal. and before the end Lawrence added a third. THE PLAYERS. Boxley gave a clever exhibition of goal-keep- ing in the first half. On several occasions ihe j extricated his side from exceedingly dangerous situations. He had very little chance of saving either the first or the third goals, but in my judgment, h-eshould have covered the shot which led to the second eoaJ. Trevor Jones was ? good torn and kwlwd b U" length I" miskicked twice-once in each half. The first was not followed by disaster, the second led to a goal. Simpson played a cool game and used his head very effectively. The Birming- ham right winger did not hug the ball, and when Simpson could not intercept the passes he generally turned round smartly and pre- vented the forward from achieving his purpose. The half-backs were the mainstay of the side. Griffiths prevented Gibson from shining with his customary brilliancy, and both E. D. Roberts and Matthias were untiring workers, and an example to several of their companions. Jar. dine was far and awav the best forward and the only adverse criticism of his play that could be offered relates to the breaches of the off- side rule in the first half. Goode ,and Noel Edwards could not find their form, and Owen seems to be slipping back into the style of play which led to his exclusion from the attack a few weeka ago. He did not open out the game and frequently sought succe)s-i by taking the ball towards his own goal, and then losing it! Frank Roberts was not given many chances, but when the ball came his way he was unable to dispose of it to advantage. As a. line, the Wrexham forwards were very disappointing, and, after making due allowance for the work of the opposing players, it is fair to say that their failure cost Wrexham the match. The defenders played well enough to win; the men in front were below par. Birmingham were well served in goal, and the backs kicked with strength and judgment. Binks was the outstanding half-back. 01 the forwards, Thompson at inside left often caught the eye, whilst Gibson and Davies on the ex- treme points of the wings played good foot- ball throughout. tfeama;— Birmingham.

WELSH SENIOR CUP. Re-played Tie. RHOS. v. BRYMBO INSTITUTE. A DECISIVE GAME. RHOS "GOALS.. BRYMBO INSTITUTE 1 GOAL (By C H.) The match of outstanding interest in the district during the wees-end was the replay cup-tie between the above teams, resulting through an undecisive game the previous Saturday. The interest displayed by local enthusiasts may be easily assumed from the fact that over 2,000 spectators passed through the •tuflnsbites, making an approximate total gate of 4,000 for the two matielies-a truly remarkable figure. Another feature of the attraction was the chartering of a special train by the Institute's supporters to Rhos, which carried over 6M, and which demonstrates a revival that may tclip-c, the historic times of pre- war days. The result was generally regarded as a foregone conclusion that Rhos would wm without exertion, but .for once they had been drawn against- a team that were just, as well versed in the art of I football as themselves if Saturday's exhibition must be taken for the comparison, and my opinion is that they were foirtunate isi winning, because Brymbo held their own in the second half, and were superior in the initial half. The fact must mot be lost sight of that the homesters gave an indifferent dis- play—totally contrary to the ,fln swinging game I hav^ previously observedi them play this season-but perhaps thi& may be attributed to the bustling and active play of the Institute, who seemed to bewilder their opponents the greater part of the first half, and it may be said with impunity that had Brymbo played the first game in the manner they played on Saturday a replay would not have been necessary. The homesters conveyed to me the impression of being unable to settle down, and it was not until the concluding stages a visible understanding be- tween the forwards was reached. A peculiar incidence was the scoring of the four goals in the first half, which found Rhos at a disadvantage through a strong wind blowing against them, ana wJUcn, wMtst mdictLtmg the value of their detence denoted the significance of the final score. With such a useful aiiy in their favour the visitors frequently had the opposing goal at their mercy, and should have been easy leaders at half-time, but the opportunities were ncrtj grasped and the home.sters saved their lines. On the other hand the homesters endeavoured to materialise every opportunity, being successful three time:?, whilst one goal in the second half was dis- allowed, the referee ruling that it was offside. One alteration was made in the Brymbo team, whilst D. Jackson took up the centre position and R. J. Jones the inside right, otherwise the teams were represented as in the first 'mateli. The alteration affected the, visitors on the better side, and they should acquit themselves admirably in the league tournament. For the homesters, T. Hughes and D. Jones were almost impregnable at back. The half- back line were good, but were not nearly so reliable as hitherto. Richard Jones, a left winger who possesses great speed, being ably assisted by W. Davies, who accomplished great things. F. Blekley was disappointing, being off form altogether, con sequently Glyn Jones had little difficulty in Ms ,¡>,¡f- appointed task' as Bickley's guardian angel.Reg Jones played with his accustomed skill, but his partner, not being in the usual mopdi, tried the herculean effort of going through himself, succeeding when the point was ruled offside. J. Williams did very well, the way in which he got his head to the ball and opening the score being magnificent. The Institute forwards played a brilliant game through- out, D. Jackson beicg .an effective pivot. J1.. T. Jo&aa more than retrieved himself for 'his previous half- heartedi play. Besides being the. heart and soul of the attack he was always in a position to assist in reducing the pressure, and kev up the pace to the. last. Samuels, a reserve player introduced into the forward line, played with great energy, but attempted too much on his own. The goal he scored was a ,beauty, fittingly heralding his appearance in the first eleven. Special credit is due to J. Newnes and J. Davies, who repelled attacks ceaselessly. Endowed with large. kicking powers and consummate skill they are as fine a pair of backs as an amateur team could wish to possess, and proved themselves an impassable barrier. The, half-backs were veiy resolute, Glyn Jones confining his efforts largely to Bickley, whilst Williams was feeding his forwards well. Matthias displayed great resourcefulness and could Ilot. be blamed for the. shots that beat him. Both games were under the jurisdiction of Mr. Nunnerley, Wrex. ham, who used great discretion and gave universal satisfaction notwithstanding the clamouring which occasionally took place on Saturday. SUMMARY OF THE PLAY. I. The visitors won the toss and played with the wind. They were not long before becoming prominent, two successive corners being gained, which proved fruitless. From a goal-kick the, visitors rallied round tbe goal, Morgan saving from Samuels through the homesters right back miss-kicking. Reg, Jones and Bickley carried the ball to the other end, but -c?stde' against the laitter checked the 01) ?sal?ug?ht. Immediately afterwards Reg Jones shot wide. The Institute took up the play with long swinging passes and were soon hovering round the. goalmouth, R. T. Jones being unable to keep his feet to have a packet when nicely placed. Receiving the. ball from Bickley, Rd. Jones raced along the left wing and sent in a long dropping shot which J. Williams converted with his head after 10 minutes' play. From the centre the Institute set a merry pace, D. Jackson striking the side: of the net with a lightning drive which deserved better fate. The Rhos citadel had a nar- row escape from falling, but the backs defended stoutly. Bickley made progress, sending in at the right moment for Matthias to save smartly. The leather was swung about at a brisk pace, offsjde spoiling both teams. Tie Institute heldi the upper hand, and after Morgan saved from Jackson, he was beaten by Samuels with a high shot. After a spell of mid-field play Rd. ibnes broke away for the home- steir&, any, by sheer speed eluded the defence and had no difficulty in putting his side aqead. The Institute retaliated, Tom Jones dwindling with the ball in the homester's goalmouth with only the custodian before him, the delay proving fatal anal the leather was cleared. W. Davies was prominent at the end, Mat- thias saving a stinger from his foot, Iut Jones put- ting the final touch to it by netting, thus the teams turned over with the homesters leading 8-1. Following the Change-over, W. Davies nullified an effort by handling in the visitor's area. From the kick the Institute swarmed roundl the opposing goal, Morgan being subjected to much hustling. J. Wil- liams, Reg Jones and Bickley transferred the play, the Institute's backs driving them back ceaselessly. From a melee, Bickley skimmed the bar with a lightn- ing drive, Matthias being hopelessly beaten. Play continued at a more or less even character, both defences being seviemly strained, the game ending in Rhos winning by 3 goals to one, earning the right 'to meet Wrexham in the third round of the cup at Rhos.
I WELSH AMATEUR CUP. ? Sewnd Bou;a, I RHOSYMEDRE V. ESCLUSHAM. Played at Rhosymedre on Saturday. From the start play settled down in the visitors' quarters and after four minutes H. Arthur opened the scoring I from a pass by P. Jones. A few minutes later 0. Edwards was brought down in the penalty area. Walter Jones was entrusted with the kick and made I no mistake. The Stars then made .their first incur- sion into home pastures, Tom Williams forcing a corner which was nicely placed. Peter Lloyd got his head to the ball and piloted it towards goal, Humphreys saving at the expense of another comer. At the opposite end, Percy Jones was nicely placed but the hezue centre could only graze the bar with a fast shot. After Nicholls had, saved the home goal from downfall when Humphreys was beaten, the Rhosymedre forwards put on heavy pressure and eventually Wallace Jones augmented. From now to j the interval the Stars were continually defending and H. Arthur brought the home total to four goals, with a pretty shot into the, corner of the net. Interval: Rhosymedre 4; Esclusham 0. The first half hour of the second half saw the Stars continually pressing. The left wing pair were con- stantly dangerous and Soden was given one glorious chance which he missed badly. However, their per. sistence was at length rewarded, Foster reducing the lead from the' penalty mark. eoon afterwards P. Lloyd scored a second for the Stars. M. Roberts, who had defended well during the onslaughts on the home goal placed his right Wing in possession and Richards racing at top speed was quickly in'the vicinity of the Stars' goal. He shot at a terrific pace whilst on the run, Hughes not having the slightest chance to save. Play from this to the close wa9 of I an even character, the anal score being. Rhos- ymedre 5; Esclusham 2. Teams:— Rhosymedre: M. Humphreys; R. Williams, T. Jones; M. Roberts, Walter Jones, T. Nicholls, W. Richards, H. Arthur, P. Jones, Wallace Jones and C. Edwards.
