F 0 0 T B AL. L.. Mr C. W. Berrie, of Rhyl, has written a long letter complaining of our criticisim of the play of his nominee, Arthur Lloyd, of the Rhyl Club, in the International Match, at Belfast. We have no deaira —in fact we don't intend-to enter into any controvery in a matter in which everyone feels himself entitled, more or lese, to express an opinion. So far as our opinion of Lloyd's play, as expressed in our notes last week, is concerned, we reiterate what we then printed, having full confidence in the bona fides of our representative. Mr Berrie probably feels that lie haa been placed in a-wdl better say—false position by either himself or his nominee. On Friday evening, a meeting of the Combination Executive was held at Manchester. Chester reported Wrexham for playing an ineligible man on January 24th, and Wrexham were fined 10.. ordered to re-play the match, and had two points deducted. On Tuesday night, the Wrexham Committee decided to retire from the Combination, but they will fulfill their engagement with Leek, at Leek, to-day (Saturday.) This was the only action to be taken, and we certainly think the Wrexham Club come out of the matter very well indeed. Much better than the Combination Executive, whose decision seems to have been arrived at specially for the benefit of Chester. The Wrexham Club mifcht have played half a dozen first-class ineligible players, in order to beat Chester, and yet would not have been more heavily punished. For playing, by a clear oversight, a junior player, they hwe bad practically four points deducted from their score. We have carefully looked through the rules, but have been unable to find the one on which the execu- tive acted, when they ordered the match to be re- played and deducted two points. On Saturday, Wrexham played a combination match with Northwich, on the Racecourse. Both teams were well represented, and a very good game was witnessed. Playing with the wind in the first half, the home team had tt;e best of it, although each side scored once. Wrexham had very hard lines on &everal occasions. W. I urner at ona time had the goal at his mercy, but his shot struck the post and went out. On changing ends the game was still fast and even, both goals being visited. Northwich scored early on in this half, and Wrexham made desperate efforts to get level, and to the relief of their supporters they did so just before the whistle blew. The game was a hard one from beginning to end, and the teams were very well matched, though we thiuk Wrexham had slightly the best of the play. For the visitors Harper did some nice work, and Postles was in splendid form at back. Whitlow was the best of the halves, and he stuck to W. Turner all through the game. The forwards are a fast lot, and did some pretty work. Pickering still sticks to the ball toe long, and Kowbottom is not to our mind quite so good as he used to be. Leather played a very good game, as did also Hickson. Turner played his usual cool game in goal, and the backs showed up well. The half-backs were all good, Evan Williams being especially smart. Of the forwards, Lea appeared o work the hardest, but he plays amongst the half-backs too much. The first goal for Northwich was scored through Lea and Hayes going for the ball together, and of course both missing it. Kyffin did some nice work, but he did not appear to be given enough to do. A Roberts hardly played as well as he did at Chester. We should like to see a little more combination amongst the torwards. At a meeting of the Executive Committee of the Welsh League on Friday last, Bangor were fined 2s 6d and two points ordered to be deducted for playing an unregistered man, against Ruabon in a I .L.eague matcn. The Mold secretary wrote, stating that owing to the lack of interest taken by their players, they in- tended to withdraw from the League. It was de- cided to allow the matter to stand over till the next meeting to 8ge whether the general meeting that the Mold Club were calling of their supporters and players could not put more life into the club. The following is the third round of the Junior Cup:- Llay Hall Blue Stars Y. Broughton St. Paul's. Wrexham Heserre v. Wrexham Victoria. Mancott and Pentre United v. Flint. Rh,s St. John's v. Chirk Reserve. At a Council meeting of the Football Association, held in London on Wednesday night, the draw for the semi-final round of the National Cup was made, and resulted as follows Sunderland v. Notta County, at Sheffield. Referee, J. C Ciegg. Blackburn Rovers v. West Bromwich Albion, at Stoke. Rtferee, C. J. Hughes. To be played on February 28th. Kick-off at 3.30. At the Rame meeting, Sunderland was decided upon as the place at which the Welsh match, which is set down for March 7th, is to take place. The other English International matches are as follows :—Blackburn, England v. Scotland, April 4th Wolverhampton. England v. Ireland, March 7th. The remaining ties in the second round of the Junior Cup were brought off on Saturday. The game at Flint between the club of that place and the Holywell Reserve was stubbornly fought out, and the home eleven, who were much heavier than their opponents, only managed to win after an extra thirty minutes' play. They will have to improve consider- ably on this form, if they hope to win the cup. We fancy that the Junior Competition will be won by the Chirk Reserve and the Chirk first team look likely to win the Senior Competition once more, unless Wrexham prevent them. CHIRK v. BURSLEM PORT VALE.-Played at Burs- Ism, on Saturday, the home team winning by five goa!s to nil. GRESFORD RESERVE. V. WREXHAM GYMNASIUM RESERVE—Played at Gresford, on Saturday, a pleasant game resulting in a win for the home team by four goals to nil. GWENFRO nBD STARS V.

At half-time the Grosvenor led by three goals to one. In the second half, the School had the best of the game for some tine, but could not score. Towards the finish, the Grosvenor pressed and scoring twice, finally won by five goals to one. WREXHAM GYMNASIUM V. GRESFORD.-rhe above teams met on the Gyms' ground on Saturday. The home team were without Beeston and Joe Turner, and the visitors were without A. Roberts and Malley. The Gymnasium won the tosp, and elected to play with the wind. Challoner set the ball rolling. It was soon returned, and in about five minutes the Gyms rushed through their first goal. Continuing the pressure, the Gresford backs had a lively time of it for a few minutes. Shelby gained possession and passed to Parry, who scored the second goal for the Gyms. Gresford were now roused up, and the game became more even. The Gyms, however, ought to have scored again, but hesitating, Edisbury cleared. The Gyms' defence was then broken through, and Jones scored for Gresford. At half-time, the game stood, Gymnasium, two Gresford, one. On re- starting, Gresford played very determinedly, and pressed the Gymnasium in their own half for a con- siderably time, Jones and Tilston finally rushing the ball and the goalkeeper through the goal, and thus equalising. About ten minutes from "time," Sam Bithell put the visitors ahead with a fine shot. Nothing further was done, and Gresford thus won for the second time this season, the score being, Gresford, three Gymnasium, two. DENBIGH RESERVE V. ROTHIN SWIFTS.—Played at Denbigh on Saturday. Ruthin won the toss, and elected to play against the wind and sun. The game commenced with a rush for the home goal, but the attack was repulsed by a smart save. A corner" was allowed for Denbigh, and the first goal was scored for them three minutes from the start. A corner" for Ruthin was cleared by Hall. Directly after, Morris scored the second goal for Denbigh. From the centre kick the Ruthinites made an assault upon the home goal, but Elias Roberts shot much too hih. Give and take play followed, until hands" were allowed Denbigh about mid-field. Hall ob- tained possession and the ball was finally shot into the hands of the Ruthin goalkeeper who threw away. Symond obtained the leather and attempted to score for Ruthin, but the shot was wide and went behind From the goal kick Denbigh obtained possession, and after a scrimmage near their opponents' quarters, Porter scored the third goal for Denbigh. From the kick-off there was a dash made for the Den- bigh goal, but Farrel was on guard, and with a mag- nificent kick passed the globe out of danger. There was a pretty bit of play from the throw-in near goal by Ruthin, but they failed to score. After a rush to the visitors' goal, the ball was forced into the goal- keeper's hands, who only just managed to clear it. Morris received and returned, the ball being eventually shot through the Ruthin goal, but the point was dis- allowed for "off-side." Half-time was called with Denbigh leading by three goals to nil. During the latter half there was but little play worthy of men- tion. Denbigh played more on the defensive. The game ended in a win for Denbigh by three goals to nil. There were three of the first team playing for the Reserve (Denbigh).
WREXHAM VICTORIA v. TOXTETH ST. JOHN'S. This match was played at Sefton Park, Liverpool, on Saturday, in dull weather. Edwards started the ball for the visitors at half-past three, and following np smartly, the ball was kicked behind. Barry kicked out, but the visitor's returned, and a corner" fell to them. The home backs worked well, and got the ball away. Wrexham came back with a fast dribble, and Parry tried a shot, which failed. Barry kicked well into the field, and the forwards mada a grand rush, which brought them well in front of the Victoria postp. Lennon made a sharp shot, and Icored first goal for Toxteth. Williams put the ball in motion, and the visiting forwards immediately got possession. Dorman kicked clear, but the Wrexham men soon returned, and Kelly made a good shot,. which equalised. Some give and take play was shown for some time, but the Victoria was soon to the front, and after a smart scrimmage in front of goal. Williams scored a second point for Wrexham.. Play continued in favor of Wrexham, and two goals were scored in quick succession by Pugh and Kelly. The home team plucked up a bit towards the end of the half, and pressed for some time. Oates centred to ISoote, who scored the second goal for loxteth. Half-tnre score Wrexham Victoria, four goals; loxteth St. John's, two goals.- On restarting, the home team ran down towards the Victoria goal, but the back?, who were playing well, cleared in fine Rtyle. Play was then in mid-field for a time. The Vies broke away, and Barry gave a CI corner," which came to nothing. Play now became fast and exciting, both goals being visited in turn. A Rood run by the visitors' left wing ended in Parry heading through the fifth goal. The game ended. Wrexham Victoria five goals, Toxteth St. John's two. —The Victoria team was J. Harrison, goal A. Davies and J. Johnston, backs J. Wilding. T. Gill, and T. Burke, half-backs J. Pugh, A. Williams, R. Parry, G. Kelly, and G. Edwarcip, forwards.
RUTHIN SCHOOL v. DENBIGH CASUALS. I This match was played on the school ground, on Saturday, before a good number of spectators. The Casuals won the toss, and elected to take advantage of a strong breeze. ThA schodl attacked the visitors' citadel, but were easily repulsed. Stephenson and Davies ran down on the Casuals right, Evanson ar.d Davis showing good defence. A pretty combined movement on the part of the School in which Williams and Thomas were conspicuous, gave the visitors some anxiety. Evans returned well, and the visitors were conceded two corners in quick suc- cession. P. Evanson, however, headed clear. The School could make but little headway against the wind, play being located about the half-way line. Williama headed a rush towards the Denbigh goal, R. O. Jones. interposing in timely fashion. Stephenson again showed to advantage, and finally kicked over the bar. Peters and Evanson were aurain conspicuous for fine defence, checking rush after rush of the visit- ing forwardp,. who, at this point, were pressing severely. A long kick by Lloyd was effectually utilised bv Cecil Davie»,. who scored far the Casuals. Price Williams and Griffiths initiated a pretty pass- ing movement, and Evanson missed an opportunity of scoring. Tall kicking by Lloyd and Jones was the most important feature during the next few minutes. Roberts dribbled well up, and a capital centre of his was propelled high over the bar by Cecil Davies. The School then made gallant efforts. Thomas got past Roberts cleverly, but succumbed to Lloyd. From now to half-time the visitors pressed con- tinually, while the shooting of the visitors was extremely faulty, At half-time the score was-Denbigh Casauls, one; Ruthin School, none. On resuming, the school forwards carried tho ball well into the visitors' territory, Jenkins being called upon to handle. Lloyd eventually effected a clear- ance, and the School were called upon to defend incursions from Stephenson and Davies. The School retaliated by forcing a"corner," which was well cleared by R. O. Jones. The home team were having slightly the best of matters at this period, and Williams heat Jackson for the first time with a long dropping shot. Evanson shot low, and Roberts experienced 80me diffi- culty in evading a capital return by Williams Cecil Davies performed well for the Casuals at the other end. Jenkins had to throw away a capital overhead shot from Price. Denbigh now attacked in earnest, Carman clearing twice in quick succession. Griffiths, who played a vigorous game throughout, then made a gooi attempt on behalf of the School. Evans de- prived, and Cecil Davies shortly afterwards gave his side the lead. The game thus ended in a win for the Casuals by two goals to one. The teams were aa follows RUTHIN SCHOOL F. V. Carman, goal; P. Evanson and V. Peters, backs Hone, Davis and J. F. Leathes, half- backs D. P. Williams, and W. G. Thomas, right wing F. Evanson and T. Price, left wing; T. U. Griffiths, centre. DENBIGH CASUALS :-J. T. Jenkins, goal Arthur Lloyd and R. O.

WESTMINSTER ROVERS.— This match was played at Rhostyllen on Saturday, in very nice weather. J. E. Jones kicked off for Rhos- tyllen soon after 3 30, and, after a run down by the home team, Jones shot, but the ball went just over the bar. The visitors then had a look in, and a scrimmage ensued in the home goal, but the ball was kicked over. Play was even for some time, and the Rovers then got to the front, and were granted throe "corners" in succession, but the goal was eventually cleared. Ellis Owens and Jones played well fttb-lick and defended their goal in fine style. A few minutes before half-time the homesters made a good run down, and the ball was put through out of a scrimmage. A dispute was raised, but the referee allowed the point. The Rovers then pressed, and W. Cross equalised. The teams crossed over on equal terras, the score standing one goal each.—On re-starting, the home team were at once granted a corner," which was sent behind. The Victoria had all the best of the play, but the Rovers' defence was good. The Rovers at length relieved the pressure, and taking the ball to the opposite end, gained two "corners," but the ball was finally kicked over the bar. At the other end, soon afterwards, George Tomkins gave the homesters the lead by scoring their second goal. Play now became exciting, and the Rovers strove hard to equalise, and about ten minutes before the close of the game they ran down and put the ball through, but the point was disallowed on the plea of off-side. In about five minutes the visitors were granted a corner," which was followed by another, but they failed to turn them to advantage, and at call of time the score stood.

The weather was all that could be desired, and the gate was the largest seen on this ground for several seasons. The home eleven were dressed and waiting on the field shcrtly after three p.m., but their opponents did not put in an appearance until twenty minutes to four. Precisely at four o'clock Bassett set the ball rolling. T. Jones returned, and Green was stopped, when getting dangerous, by J. R. Jones. The home right relieved the pressure, but Gittens checked, and Bob Roberts took a long hot. A free kick for the Druids was the next feature, T. Jones robbing Davies, and Dodd effecting a run. A shot by Reeves was just saved by Williams. Both sides were awarded free kicks, but nothing accrued. A run by Jones and Green ended in the latter shooting outside. A "corner followed, but it was worked away, and the Druids' left made a fine run, the final shot by Davies touching the cross-bar. Reeves got nicely down and crossed, but Taylor cleared. A run by D. Evans and Roberts was finished by a shot at goal, Roberts saving at the expense of a II corner. This was got away by Gittens. Williams had two shots to repel, which he did in brilliant style. A mis-kick by Gittens gave the home right a clear way, but Pritchard cleverly t ickled just in time. A run by R. Jones was met by Taylor, and Gittens made one of the finest shots of the day, the ball striking the cross- bar. A hot scrimmage ensued, but Williams saved. A free kick taken by Postle resulted in a corner for the home eleven. The ball was welTplaced, and after a sharp struggle W. Evans shot outside. Green made a run, but spoilt it by a bad pass, and Taylor robbed Lloyd. Gittens made a long shot, and R. Jones being well up, was successful in beating Wil- liams with a fast shot. The game now became fast. After Green had made a run, R. Jones took a long shot, which went outside. D. Evans centred well, but Bassett kicked wide. The visitors' left put in a fast run and crossed to Jones, who shot. Williams gave a "corner." This was beautifully placed, but Taylor saved and Edwards relieved the I pressure. Straight shots from Postle and W. I Jones were safely got away by Furmstone. At half-time Rhos were leading by one goal to nil. On resuming play, the Druids with the wind some- I what in their favor, began immediately to Dress. W. Jones and D. Evans both had shots, and Bassett put I the ball outside. Edwards tried a long shot, but [ Furmstone was watchful. After a corner had I been cleared, D. Evans and Bassett were successful in a clever pass and run, and W. Roberts equalised the score. The Druids still forced the game, and the visitors' goalkeeper had several shots to negociate. Three" corners" in succession for the home team followed, but without result. After the Rhos right had made an attempt to pass the home backs, Postle put in one of his excellent shots.. Bassett headed to the left, and Davies, with a beauty added the second point for his side. Still the pressure was kept up at the visitors' end, and Furmstone was repeatedly cheered for his excellent saves. An effort on the visitors' right transferred the play, and a free kick resulted close to the home upright- After a hot contest, the bail was kicked over the bar. Both goals were alternately visited. R. Roberts, who was now playing forward, enlivened the proceedings with his dashing play. Edwards did some neat work, and W. Jones sent in a good shot, Bassett putting the finish- ing touch, and scoring the third goal for his side. The final result was tlius-Druide, three Rhos, one. The following were the teams DRUIOS.—J.

CHESTER v. BURTON SWIFTS.-Played at Burton in fine weather. The Swifta set the ball rolling, and the Chester left got away, but were sent back, and the visitors' goal was hotly attacked, Birket4 and Need- ham shooting over aftrr a grand run by Fleming and Jones, Sterling play by the Chester backs neutralised a series of hot attacks from the Swifts' left, Jones and Taylor being particularly conspicuous. The game continued to be of a very open nature, and the ball travelled quickly from end to end, each custodian being called on to clear in turn. Half-time arrived without either side having scored. In the second half the Swifts forced the play. May finally scored for them after some very fine play by the whole of the front division. Nothing further being scored the bwifts won by one izoal to nil. WREXHAM V NORTHWICH VICTORIA.-Tliis match was played on Wrexham Racecourse on Saturday, before a very good "gate."

Roberts just headed outside the posts. Directly afterwards A. Lea equalised the score. Some passing by Kyffin and Roberts, and a cross by the latter result* 1 in a "corner/ for Wrexham. This was badly placed and was got away. A rush by the home for- wards ended in Harper hitting away a shot from J. Roberts.

At half-time, the score was Wrexham 1 goal, North- wich one goal. In the second half, the visitors com- menced to press, but the home defence was good. A corner" for Wrexham was kicked behind. North- wich pressed, and a shot from Leather was saved by Turner. Wrexham made for the visitors' goal, and Turner was just prevented from scoring.

The victors over Preston were, however, bettten on Saturday by a goal to none. There was an immense throng < f spectators, and the game proved of a very exciting nature. It was not until well in the sscond half that Nott4 scored the solitary point of the match. Sheffield Wednesday and Webt Bromwich Albion played their tie at Sheffield. A very close contest was the result. West Bromwich gained a goal at the end of half an hour, and afterwards registered another, so that West Bromwich Albion threw out last year's runners up by two goals to none. As might have been expected. Sunderland gained a somewhat easy victory over N'.tts Forest, whose success against the sister club of this town had only been achieved at the third meet- ing. The game took place at Sunderland before 12 000 people. The home side scored once before half time, and thrica subsequently, and beat the Notts Forest by four goals to none.

KILLED AT ThE BRYMBO STEEL WORKS. On Tuesday morning the adjourned inquest was held at the County Buildings on the body of Albert Jones, aged fourteen, employed as a marker at the Brymbo Steel Works, who died on February 10th at the Wrexham Infirmary, from injuries received at the Steel Works on January 21st. It will be remembered that the boy was injured in the shoulder, and on February 5h amputation was performed. On the 10h he dip(1 from exhaustion caused bv the accident. Mr B. H. Thelwall presided, and Mr F. Wanty was the foreman of the jury. The first witness was Mr Peter Williams, manager of the Brymbo Steel Works, who produced a plan of the works. He said deceased was a marker, and his work was to paint sections on the bars, and the number of the cast. On January 21st ho was crossing over several lines to the smithy, which is about 100 yards away, to get a pair of tongs. He went outside the gate. and some shunt. ing was being done on an incline of 1 in 30 which was used for bringing coal and iron to the workp. The object of this was to change the position of the wagon from the chimney end of the engine to the tail end, the process being to SPllrl the wagon up the incline and then by allowing it to run down get it on another set cf rails and so reverse it. As he passed through the gates the brakesman warned him to stay where he was. When the train had passed, the boy returned from the smithy, and in his anxiety to get back to his work he went through a small door which opened directly upon tha line. The wagon was running down the incline, and before he could get out of the way he was knocked down. John Wynne, brakesman, said he knew the de- ceased. On January 21st the wagon was beint; pro- pelled at the back of the engine. It was laden with steel, and was being taken to the furnace yard. Witness saw deceased near the gates, and he told him not to croap. He thought the lad would not go, and he did not cross until witness went to the points. Three minutes later the boy was knocked down and had his shoulder injured. Witness picked him up and took him to a watchman's hut, and left him in charge of a foreman. Evan Evans, charge collector, said he was present on the day ot the accident. lIe saw the deceased come through a small doorway instead of using the main door. Just as he got inside the door, the wagon which was running down the incline at the rate of twelve miles per hour, came up to him, and witneas thought that the boy fell over the railp. and so was injured. The Coroner said it seemed that the boy had mis- calculated the distance of the wagon, and had ex- pected that he could have crossed before the wagon came upon him, but failed to do so. The jury, without having the room cleared, returned a verdict of Accidental death."
