WELSH JUNIOR CUP. SEMI-FINAL TIES. ADWY UNITED V. BANGOR RESERVE. Played at Flint on Saturday. The ground was in splendid condition and the weather fine. Play be^an in the most lively manner, and Bangor were not long in making the first score. The play then assumed a more desperate form, both sides fouling repeatedly Bangor, however, were constantly giving proof of their superior strength, and at half-time had two goals against their opponents' one. The second half of the game was equally interesting, both goals being threatened in turn. The Bangor backs and goal- keeper played a fine game, the keeper on one occasion breaking the cross-bar in attempting to save. The Bangor forwards succeeded in putting on a third goal. Shortly after the restart Adwy United carried the ball before them to the goal of the Reserve men, but Bangor succeeded in resisting the attack. The result was :—Bangor, four goals Adwy, one. CAERGWRLE WANDERERS V. SHREWSBURY RESERVE. —Played at Oswestry on Saturday, before a good number of spectators.

Williams and Garre f t were a ( f and Garrett were a dangerous pair, and were continually troubling Davies and Jones. Some good work by E. Jones aud Griffiths transferred the venue of operations to the other end, and after a little passing Williams beat Richards in the first six minutes. From the centre kick, Shrewsbury, led on by Gwilliam and Garrett, got dangerously near the Welshmen's citadel, giving Stainer an easy chance when only a few yards from goal, which he missed. The Welshmen, after this let-off, played a far better game, and their long passing and rushes caused the Salopians no end of anxiety. Although Shrewsbury obtained a couple of corners nothing tangible resulted. Immediately afterwards.
