FOOTBALL. Rowdyism by Midland Football Players.! The pleasure of the fixture between Western Counties and Midland Count>es at Exeter last week was marred (says the Athletic News) by the presence of that tvIl which has been often de- nounced in these cohunns- v;z., the idea pcs- sessed by some footballers that they have special licence to disturb the peace of distant towns which they happen to visit. Why they cannor, behave themselves as 0rdinary tourists is an msolvable problem. The Mid landers arrived at Exeter on Tuesday last about 10.30, and put up at one of the best hotels in the city. About mid- night uine or ten of tbe players left the hotel and got into the Arcade through a small postern gate left unlocked for the exclusive use of the residents. Here they commenced singing and yelling, mak- ing such a pandemonium that most of the resi- dents, who were in bed, rose and came to the windows and doors in terror, thinking a fire had broken out. When spoken to the men simply jeered and laughed, and one of them danced heavily on the grating in front of the Üop of the tradesman who had asked them to stop their noise and go away quietly. After making some nsulting remarks and more row, they left and t went further down the street. t » More Alleged Msbbing. f A Keighley correspondent telegraphs :-The I match between Ripon and Keighley Shamrocks | at Ripon on Saturday broke up in great disorder I The Shamrocks say they were brutally treated by f r-the Ripon players and spectators. When they5 were leading by a try to nil Iton was tackled, andi whilst he was prostrate his left leg wa.s trampled on and injured. Flaherty, standing by, was kicked, the offender being ordered off the field. The spectators demanded the removal of Patsy O'Hara. and ultimately they broke into the field, attacking the Keighley players with sticks and missiles. The referee, a Leods man, had to run from the field, and the Shamrocks quitted as quickly as possible under fire of nmd, etc. Jam?s Iton confirms this statement, and says that he still suffers fioin bis hii-,tg, though he was vester- day afternoon able to attend the funeral of Mr Stell, landlord of the Angel Inn, and vice- president of the Sha.mrocks Club, INTERNATIONAL TRIAL MATCH. WEST v. MID DISTRICT. The initial trial match for the f<enson, under the auspices of the Welsh Football Union, took p'ace on the ground of the Neath Footbal1 Club, when teams representing the Western and Mid Districts met to try conclusions. There were several alterations at the last moment from the originally selected fifteens. The weather was fine, and the ground appeared to be in capital condition. The attendance when the teams fielded at 3 45 numbered about 2,000. The fol- lowzzjgwerf, the teams :— West District-Bad;, Joe Davies (Neath); three-quarters, E. Lloyd (Llaaelly), O. Esvdger (Llanelly), C. Steer (Neath), and C. Bovven (Llanelly); halves, Ben Davies and D. Morgan (Llanelly) forwards, W. Morris and W. J. Thomas (Llanelly), J. Reynolds and H. Jones (Neath), J. Derx-on (Morriston). W. Jacksou and A. M. Jenkim fSw&nsea), and J. Jones (Llanelly). Mid District—Back. Llew, Every (Llanelly); three-quarter b.ks, T. Emery (Bridgend). G. Trick (Neath), F. Fryer (Merthyr), and J. Wil. liams (Neath); half-backs, S. Sullivan (Ferndale) and W. Phillips (Mounto.in Ash) forwards, J. Luke (Brideend), E. George (Pontypridd), F. Perrott (Mountain Ash), A. Tiiom<is (Treorky), R. Hopkins (Ferndale). T. Bryant (Pontypridd), and J. lhyman (Bridgend). Referee, Me W. Wilkuis. Llanelly. The Mici District started, Badger returning to I the centre, where the game immediately settle down. A rush by the Mid District men was cleverly saved by Joe Davies, who picked np neatly and found touch near the centre. Badger here got oft, and after passing several opponents gave the b,.1I to Cliff Bowen, who was brought down from behind. The West District pressed and notched a minor. The drop-out saw some excellent passing on the part of tbe Western backs. Ben Davies picked up the ball on the division line and threw tt to Badger, who in turn pave up to Clift Bowen, and the latter went off at tap speed, shaking off two or three opponents who endeavoured to tackle him, and when confronted by the Mid full back re-transferred to Badger,who got across. J. Davies failed to improve upon the point. The M'd District men managed to work the ball to the Westerners' 25 on the drop-out, but the passing of the Western backs soon drove them to the centre. Here the Westerners were awarded a free. Ben Davies punted to Ev;-ry, who was slow in gathering the ball, and in consequence was upset ere he could return. A hot attack was made on the Mid Dis- trict line, but they eventually succeeded in taking the ball to the division-line. Steer now got away well, but threw a trifle forward to Evan Lloyd, a certain try thus b-jirig Jost. The Wi st still attacked and another minor was conceded. Then Evan Lloyd was conspicuous on the drop-out for some exceedingly smart phi,y, handing off several men who attempted to bring him down, and passing to one of his club mates, who was tackled. The Mid District fifteen at last raised the siege and got far inside the Western 25. Their stay was only of a momen- tary character, and they were repulsed to the centre. Steer here became the recipient of the ball and passed to Evan Lloyd, who went away at a rattling pace and seemed u probable scorer when C. Williams brought him down finely. A scrum followed, and from this Ben Davies smartly got hold and dodged in. Joe Davies was successful with the place-kick. HALF-TIME SCOBS G. T. M. WEST 1 1 2 MID 0 0 1 On resuming the backs were reversed, the Western halves aud three-quarters playing behind the Mid pack and the opposing backs going over in their places. The Mid District now acted on the aggressive, and a loose rush on the part of their forwards saw Howell Jones fall across with a try, wbtch Badger failed to convert. Not long afterwards Ben Davies, snapping up a pass which Trick had failed to take, ran in with another try for the Mid, which Badger failed to majorise. A minor followed Il1 favour of the Mid District,, the Westerners following suit by obtaining one. The Western forwards were getting the beat of the argument and repeatedly sent out, but the Mid backs could do very little with it. Both sides were in turn visited, but the tine passing of the Llanelly backs ultimately culminated in the Midlarder,,3 being able to put their opponents strictly on the defensive. Another minor was obtained by them, and on the drop out I they were again seen pressing as the outcome of some capital passing on the part of Steer and Evan Lloyd. Time was tlwn calied. FINAL SCORE G. T. M. WEST 113 I MID 0 2 2 I LLWYNYPIA V. PENYGRAIG. These rival teams faced each other on Monday afternoon on the Bellevue ground, Penygraig, in the presence of about 2,000 spectators. The weather was fine and the ground in excellent condition. Mr Douglas, Cardiff, was the referee. In the first half the galne was hotly contested and most exciting. HALF-TIME SCORE G. T. M. LLWYNYPIA 0 1 0 PENYGRAIG 0 0 0 D. Thomas resumed operations, and Penygraig immediately invaded the visitors' territory. The homesters rushed up near the line and obtained a minor. In mid-field one of the Llwynypia halves transferred, but Rosser Evans missed his oppor- tunity. Then Elias, for Penygraig, got hold, but he was brought down near the touch-line at half-way. Matters became very warm about the division line, and after a hard struggle Penygraig rushed up to the visitors, 25. Relief having been brought to half-way, Hadridtye, the full hack, got hold, and punted to the Penygraig 25. Reynolds got hold and chucked to Howell Thomas, who made a sensational run, and in the visitors' 25 trans- ferred to Reynolds, who was collared imme- diately. FINAL SCORE o, T. M.
