A shot by Ketley, made directly after, was put over the bar by ¡ Hiiiiiotfc, and Jjoweii again put the ball harinlessiy behind. Smith got an opportunity of scoring, but made a bad shot, and after some passing by all the JJruids' foi wards, the hall w as put Delsinil Clie lines. W. Williams brought the ball up from the kick out., and put it in front of the Stars' goal, from whence J. Andrew rescued it, and took the ball down the light wing, the Stars, however, f illed to keep it in their opponents' territory, and it was brought back. Lloyd took it long shot, which .Tones headed back, and Hey wood put the ball behind the lines. The Druids got a free kick not far from the Stars' goal, I but. it proved ineffectua l, and the Stars again got the hall half-way down the light wing. It was soon returned, and put behind the Stars' goal but rather wide. The Stars' forwards then worked the ball down again, and a free kick was secured. Gittins took it, and put the ball close to the goal, from whence A, Powell made a good return, and Hevwood and Lloyd passed it up the right wing, and obtained a throw in. Lloyd got the ball from the throw, and sent it across the mouth of the goal, and Vaughan getting up. landed it between the posts and secured the first goal at 4.22 (twenty-seven minutes from the start). On resuming, the Dntids continued theattaok, and 1 ley wood was within an ace of repeating the dose. A free kick was given to the Druids a couple of yards from the Stars' goal, but they failed to get the ball through, Heywood eventually sending it behind the lines some distance from the goal. Smith took a header at the goal, but Hibhott secured the bail and hit it away, giving Lloyd a turn the latter, how- ever, sent it just over the bar. The Stars' forwards Again raised the siege, but only temporarily, as Vaughan got the ball up ana in and sent it behind the lines. Gittins followed with a run on the left side, but was Stopped by J. Powell, who played the ball in touch. It was thrown in front of the Druids' goal, but got awav with little difficulty, but was again sent in touch. The second throw placed the Druids' goal in considerable peril. Ketley kicked the ball away, and Morgan sent it back. The Druids' forwards again got it, and by some fine passing soon reached their adversaries' quarters, and Lloyd made a good shot. Owen stopped it. and gave his forwards another chance, of which W. Williams robbed them, and send- ing the ball to Ketley the last-named ran it up the centre, and after being passed from wing to wing Hey wood put it behind the lines. A run Oil the right side by the Druids ended In Jones giving a corner kick. Lloyd took it but reaped no ad vantage, as the Stars'forwards got the ball and got:1. good opportu- nity of scoring. Woosn-.m, however, put it behind the lines. Another attack was better directed, but the younger Powell got the ball away. The Stars then got a free kick for a foul..T. AUIlrew took the kick, and sent the ball to the goal. It was, however, of no avail, and the ball was back in its old quarters, where Jones, Owen, and J. Andrew had severally frustrated the efforts of their opponents to score, when half time was called. On changing ends the Stars got the benefit of a little wind, but they did not at once turn this to account as Heywood and Lloyd got possession of the leather and ran it down their wing. Jones tackled them and re- turned the ball, and Vaughan directly after took a long shot at the Stars' goal, Hibbott catching the ball and throwing it out. Heywood missed a shot, and Ketley sent the ball behind after a free kick by J. Powell. Andrew and Lewis got away on the right and carried the fray into their adversaries' quarters. Williams made an able defence of his goal, and Gittins afterwards sent the ball behind the lines very wide of the goal. After a throw in, Morgan sent the ball well up and Rees put it behind the lines very near the goal, and after another good run the Druids' goal narrowly escaped a downfall. J. Andrew put the ball up, but it was again sent behind the Druids' lines. Smith afterwards got away but was stopped by Jones, and after a run down the right wing Heywood sent the ball behind the lines. J. Andrew relieved his goal and the Druids forwards put in some nice work, the heading being particularly good, they, however, got the ball in touch and the Stars got it away from their goal. Another attack was made and Owen sent the ball away twice, and a free kick to the Druids was rendered useless by the fine play of the Newtown backs, and their forwards got away with the ball and sent it over the Druids' goal bar. Smith made an attempt to score for the Druids, but was frustrated, and Jones stopped a well-aimed shot by Vaughan and returned the ball. Another attack was stopped by the same plaver, and the Stars' for- wards got another innings, which ended in Gittins sending the ball widely behind the goal. Owen stopped a run by the Druids' forwards. After several passages of the ground Smith got a shot, Jones stopped it, and D. Williams got a chance of a clear run, but was collared when iietr goal. The Stars again took the ball up and J. Powell returned it from near his goal, and Lloyd made a run and a good centre W. Andrew brought it back and put it in front of goal, where a free kick was gi ven to the defenders. At this stage Vaughan and W. Andrew appeared likely to treat the spectators to a display of the manly art," but the preliminary spar brought about the intervention of their friends, and, coupled with a caution from the referee, had the effect of restoring peace. The Stars again assailed their ad ver- saries' goal, J Andrew and Woosnam respectively sending the ball behind the lines, and J. Powell stopped a shot by Gittins. The Druids' backs frustrated another attack, and Jones and Vaughan got away with the ball Owen, however, got it from them and sent it back into the Druids' quarters, and after a throw in the goal was relieved by A. Powell. A run on the right by Lloyd and Heywood got the ball behind the Stars' lines, and after the kick out Jones sent it nicely across the goal. Lloyd, however, missed his kick, and the Stars' forwards jetting the ball a run was made. Williams could not be passed, and making a clever return, Owen's services were rendered necessary to save the Star's goal. Heywood then made a long shot, and Hibbott had just thrown the ball away when Vaughan charged him. A corner kick followed, from which Heywood put the ball short of the goal, it was returned to him but he made a bad shot and sent the ball behind. A rush was made at goal by the Druids' forwards, and Smith headed the ball to the goalkeeper who hit it away. Vaughan sent it back but it struck the post, and, rebounding, was put behind by one of the Stars. The corner kick was well placed, the goal narrowly escaped, Owen however again rescued it. The ball was sent twice behind the lines once very wide of the mark, by Jones. Vaughan then got it on the left side, and dodging the backs, sent it at the goal, Hibbott caught the ball, but had not had time to throw it out when Smith and Heywood rushed at him, and he dropped it through the goal at 5.17. The Stars' forwards had little to do with the ball after the kick-off, their opponents getting in possession, and by some extremely good passing taking it into the vicinity of the Stars' goal, Vaughan sending it behind the lines. Owen's fine defence again gave the Stars' forwards a chance, but the only result was to get the ball behind the lines wide of the goal. J. Andrew sent the ball up the left wing and Gittins got a run, A. Powell stopped him, but could not get the ball away and it was put behind the lines, this, however, was the Stars' last effort, and the ball was taken down to their goal and sent over the bar by Heywood. A free kick failed to afford much relief. Ketley got a shot which Hibbott stopped, and the ball was still in front of the Stars' goal when time was called, and the game ended in favor of the Druids by two goals to none. The duties of umpires were ably discharged by Messrs E. Phennah (Civil Service) and S. Williams (Foresters), and Mr S. G. Crump (Stafford Road, Wolverhampton), filled the not very agreeable post of referee. The teams were composed as under :— DRUIDS. I I Goal, B Roberts backs, J. Powell (captain), A. Lowell; half-backs.
