I FOOTBALL. Oh irk iilayfd their t'lird successive drawn game in the Combination on New Y»ai\j Day. Their opponents were Chester, and the match was played at Chirk. The visitors led at half-time by two goals to one, and on crossing over spee lily added a third goal. Chirk then commenced to play, and equalised. They were rather unfortunate in not winning. Chester ave evidently mi improved team, but, they sustained a hehvy defeat on"Saturday, when North- wich Victoria beat them by eight goals to oue. I Eveiton were defeated for tIlt, first time ia the Combination on Saturday, Stoke Swift doing the trick at Stoker We have Reen both team play, aiid this result notwithstanding, wi: consider Everton a much better team than the Swifts. On Saturday Wrexham played Gorton Villa, at Gorton, and were beaten bv three goals to one. Wrexham have lost four successive games in the Combination after winning four. We trust the lurk will chanee to-day (Saturday) when they meet Buxton on the ltacecourse. The mnt'di, on Saturday, at Gorton, was well con- t»rt'd, Wrexham-havint; mote of the play than their opponents, but they were tillable to score. The Villa p!ay on n, very had ground, in fact, the Wrexham men "y tliey have never playeil upon a worse, and t'lis had a lot to do with theis" de- feat, for it has heen conclusively proved that they are unable t) play up to their form on a heavy ground. The Villa scored two lucky goals, and altogether were very fortunate to win. Push played a good game in goal, but the backs were unsteady. The halves did w"J1, n-id t'le forwards wo.-itailstic- cessfully in the field, but failed at goal. Mat.cott and Pentre United did a good performance on Saturday, when they played a drawn game with Denbigh, at Denbigh, in the Charity Cup Competi- tion. Wrexham Gymnasium beat Saltney Reserve in the Junior Cup, on Saturday. The Gyms had all the best of the game, and scored four goals, hut the referee, with whom they were greatly dissatisfied, disallowed two. The Charity Cap Committee met at Wrexham on Friday, to decide a protei-t lodged by Rbostyllen auainst the eligibility of a player named Daniel Roberts, who waR a member of the Rhos team which defeated them in the first round of the competition. The Committee decided that Roberts was not eligible to play, and ordered the tie to be re-played at lihostyllen on or before January 18.- On the same evening, the Sub-Committee of the Welsh Association entrusted with the management of the Junior Cup Competition met at the Lion Huuse, Wrexham. In reference to the ties between Buck!ey Victoria and Moss White Stars, who played a drawn same, and were ordered to re-play the tie on or before December 28th, but failed to do so, the committee decided to award the match to Buckley Victoria, that club being willing to play on December 28th, while Moss White Stars declined to play on that date. Referees were appointed for the ties in the second round of the competition and Wrexham Gymnasium and Wrexham Reserve were granted until the lfiih inst. to play off their tie. The Wrexham Ctuh held a successful Rmoking concert, on Wednesday evening, at the Lion House.
