CIVIL SERVICE v. FORESTERS (GWERSYLLT.) This tie was played off on Saturday, on the Recrea- tion Ground, Rhosddn, before a large number of spectators, and resulted, after a good game, in favor of the Service by three goals to one. The Foresters' captain won the toss, and the Service forwards kicked off wind a strong wind against them, defending the goal nearest the railway. The Gwersyllt backs re- turned the ball, and their forwards getting hold, by a combined rush passed the home team's backs and scored their first and only goal in about three minutes from the commencement of the game. This rather surprised the Service men, but nothing daunted they played on pluckily, and passing the ball in front of goal the centres put it through. The play now con- tinued very even, the ball never remaining long in any part of the field, but it soon became apparent that the Service was the best team, for their play against the wind was really good. Just before half-time J. Jones made a good run up the wing, and placing the ball in the centre, both ball and goalkeeper were quickly transferred to the other side of the posts. After the change of ends the Service men completely penned their opponents, and the Foresters' goalkeeper had all his work to do to keep the ball out. The visitors, however, still continued to play pluckily, and their forwards made some good runs, but never succeeded in passing the Service backs, who played remarkably well. About five minutes before call of time W. Jones put the "finishing touch to some good passing and scored the third goal for his team. It is of no use trying to single out any individual player, as every man on the field worked his best for his own team. The match resulting, as before stated, in a victory for the Service by three goals to one. The following were the teams:—Gwersyllt Goal, J. Foulkes backs, R. Davies. J. Buckley; half-backs. G.
