BY MUDDIED OAF." Association. The fortnightly meeting of the Aberdare and District Junior Association League was held at the Castle Hotel, Aberaman, on Wednesday week, Mr. J. Finn in the chair. It was decided that the match between Cwmbach Exceilsiors and Aber- aman Stars be replayed, and also that the fixture between the Aberdare Crescents and Cefnpennar be played on March 28. Transfers were granted to T. Pendry from the Crescents to Gadlys, and to Dan Jones from the Cwmbach Excelsiors to Cwmbach Liljywhites. Respecting the medals competition, it was decided that teams may enrol 16 players for the 5s. entrance fee, and that the referee's fee be 2s. 6d. No further applications for trans- fers will be considered. Godreaman ap- pealed against the decision of the League with reference to a Cefnpennar player named Allen, who, it was alleged, played for a senior team at Treharris. The pro- test failed. The next meeting will be held at the Crown Hotel, Aberdare. SOUTH WALES AND MON. JUNIOR CUP COMPETITION. FIRST ROUND. Cwmaman v. Gilfach Goch.—Referee, Mr. Smith, Bridgend. Played at Cwm- aman on Saturday. The game was rather one-sided throughout, and at times rather scrappy. Still, considering the greasy state of the field and the climatic condi- tions, such play was only to be expected. The redeeming feature of the play was the keen tackling indulged in by the Gil- fach and Cwmaman forwards, the visit- ing outside left and his partner being conspicuous. However, the, C'wmaman forwards played a winning game, and after combining beautifully scored eleven goals against Gilfach's two. Barson, the erstwhile Barry player, headed the home- sters scoring with 4 goals, Jack Griffiths, Ted Higgins, and Scully, and Evan Joseph, the C'wmaman custodian (from a penalty) also scored. The Cwmaman team can boast of possessing in Evan Joseph the finest goal-keeper in the second division. The outstanding feature of Gilfach's play was the sterling defence of their right back. As for the rest they lost several opportunities of scouting at goal. Jack Griffiths, of the home for- wards, improves week by. week. Danny Thomas is as nippy a ever at centre- half. Ben Berrymaa., the right back, clears with precision, and does not forget to feed his men promptly. Dan Isaac is hardly in the form he used to be. If he does not improve he will .surely lose his place. Considering the important matches the team have yet to, play, a re- liable left full back is of vital import- ance. Next Saturday the team will pro- bably play the local premier eleven at the Ynys. Final Score Cwmaman 11 goals, Gilfach Goch 2 goals. THE ABERDARE! AND DISTRICT ;JUNIOR ASSQCIATION LEAGUE. Cwmbach Lilywhites v. Great Western Rovers.—Played at Ynyscynon Grounds on Saturday. The homesters fielded a strong team, whereas the "Loco" boya played five substitutes. The Rovers kicked off under wretched conditions, and immediately pressed, the ball going be- hind. Even play ensued for some time until T. Rees broke away for Cwmbach, and was prominent with a fine dribble on the right, but he was intercepted in time by Bert Whittle. The latici transferred to Jim Davies, who essayed a long shot, the ball fallling short of the aperture. Give and take play resulted in both goals having narrow escapes, and nothing wa,s scored up till the interval. On the resumption Cwmbach renewed the pressure, the state of the ground mili- tating against good work by the "Sheds", forwards, who were also the lighter team. After some desultory play, Rees secured from Mog Davies, the, home back, and opened the score for Cwmbach. The same player added another directly after- wards with a beautiful shot. Panniers scored the third goal. Finall Score: I Cwmbach Lilywhites 3 goals Great Western Rovers Nil. The game was a miserable exhibition. The Great Westerners' reserve men were completely off-colour; they seemed lost on the slippery and uneven turf, whilst Cwmbach adapted their play better to the prevailing circumstances. C'wmbach did not exert themselves- int the initial half; but with the change of ends, however, their play became remarkably vigorous, and Bert Whittle was, without doubt, the most prominent and useful back on the field. Arthur Jackson, his partner, was also a powerful factor for the Cwm- bach forwards to contend with. Jimmy Davies at half and Jack Jones at forward were also excellent for the "Loco" boys. For Cwmbach, the backs, M. J. Davies, Rees, and Panniers were in fine fettle. Gadlys Rovers v. Aberdare Crescents. —This League fixture, was turned into a friendy game, owing to the climatic con- ditions. Both sides played the one-back game, and were under the charge of Mr. Isaac Williams. The game was, from start to finish, a pure farce. Immediate- ly after the kick-off, W. Watkin Williams secured, and having nobody to beat, scored a goal for Gadlys. Afterwards they paid short incursions into the Cres- cents' territory, but were pulled up through, ibeingj off-side. Try as they would, Gadlys could not get the ball into their opponents' goal, as they slipped and the ball stuck in the mud on several occasions. The Crescents got away through Lewis and Walker, and ultimate- ly equalised matters through Tom Phil- lips. Pritchard added another. After the interval Tom Phillips, after falling on his face into a mud bath, scored the Crescents' third goal. Leonard Ford and! Jack Thomas were sound play- ers on the Gadlys side. Final Score: Aberdare Crescents S goals. Gadlys Rovers 1 goal. Aberaman Excelsiors v. Godreaman. —Played at Michael's Field on Saturday in rough weather. The game was strenu- ously contested, and nothing was scored at the interval. On the resumption, how- ever, the Excelsiors scored a goal through. Dick Samuels. The game ended abruptly a quarter of an hour before time owing to the ball having burst on some spikes. Consequently this League fixture will have to be replayed. Final Score: Aberaman Excelsiors 1 goal. Godreaman I. Nil. 4A. M. 1 n ABERDARE SCHOOLBOYS' LEAGUE. Owing to the wretched weather and the greasy condition of the fields, three of the ,schools' fixtures were postponed. The Higher Gradians were to have met the Industrial boys in their first meeting, which match was eagerly looked forward to. However, three of the fixtures were played off at the AthleticGrounds. Saint F'agan's defeated Ynyslwyd by a goal to nil, whilst Cwmdare and Cap- coch's match culminated in a pointless draw. The Nationalists had a runaway victory over Cwmbach, beating their op- ponents by no fewer than eight goals to nil. The Cwmaman and Blaengwawr match was also postponed. TRIAL MATCHES. Preparatory to selecting the team that are to meet the Barry Schoolboys at Barry next Saturday week, two trial matches took plaice at the Athletic Grounds on Monday afternoon. The ground was in a better condition than on Saturday. The opposing teams were- A and B, and C and D, selected from the Upper and Lower Districts. The game between A and B afforded I a spectacular treat. Rees J. Rees (Roberts- town) drew first blood for the B team with a fine shot. The game gradually worked itself into a hotly contested one. B team were the aggressors for some time, and ultimately scored through "Pinky' (Park Schools). This point was, however, ruled offside. A team were then conspicuous by their pretty combination, and eventually scored two beautiful goals through John- nyH ughes (Industrial), thus giving the "All Whites" the lead at the interval by 2 goals to 1.On the resumption give and take play ended in John Jones (Indus- trial) adding a third goal. Owens subse- quently found the aperture for B team. It would be invidious to particularise any players as they all did their work to per- fection. Clayton (Hie ir Grade) scored again for the "A" bpyllt. Final Score: A Team 4 goals. BTeam 2 goals. The second match that followed! be- tween the C and D teams was also eagerly contested. Good individual play by each side resulted in a drawn game. Final Score: C Team l goal. O Team l goal. Another trial will take place next week, when the. final selection will be made. Cardiff County School v. Aberdare County School. This deferred match came off at the Cardiff Intermediate School Grounds before a good attendance. In a previous meeting between these teams at the Park a drawn game was the issue. The "City" boys had arranged a match with Barry on the same day, so they played that first and afterwards met the Dare lads in a keen game. Crocker, Bos- well, and Adams scored for Cardiff, whilst Williams and Davies scored for Aberdare. Final Score: Cardiff County School 4 goals. Aberdare County School. 2 goals.
