They journeyed to Letterston in a brake. Letterston won the toss and selected to play with the wind and down the gradient. After a few minutes' play, Moses shot the first goal fox Fishguard. A penalty kick resulted in another goal by Moses. Four more goals were scored in the first half for Fishguard. Second half-Eleven goals were scored for Fishguard in the Sr cond half, one only for Letterston. It would not be fair to in- dividualise players, as all played such a good game. This score constitutes a record for Fishguard. If this team could be kept together, it would give some good display of I football. The final score was Fishguard, 17 goals Letterston, 1 goal. ♦j* On the 16th inst. the death occurred of Mrs Marthas Davies, of Gongol, High-street.
