Cox i ■a fine burst for the homesters, but „ threw the ball out recklessly, and Doiled a good chance. A dribble by the ertliyr forwards enabled them to attack. °r the next fiftten minutes Merthyr were eQntiiiually aggressive, their backs receiving innumerable chances, all of which were missed. Just before half- time, R. Rees fairly walked over the treherbert line with a try, and Tom lhomas easily converted. Felt on played a great game at full-back for Treherbert during this half, his fine kicking being a special feature. Then A. Francis finished pp a movement by scoring a well-earned try for Treherbert. Dingley converted. The visitors; were very fortunate in being awarded a penalty in an easy position, and Tom, Thomas landed a goal for Mer- thyr, the game being thus decided in favour of the visitors. Merthyr were slightly superior, but their play was not deserving of victory. It was a go-as-you-please match, and all incidents were of an individual character. TREHERBERT EX-SCHOOLBOYS 8pts., CAMBRIAN RESERVES 0. PLAYERS ATTACKED, Treherbed Ex-Schoolboys visited Cly- dach Vale on Saturday Iast to play this League match, in which the, ground record of Cambrian Reserves was at stake. The weather was favourable, and the ground was in good condition. Treher- bert lost no time in forcing a hot attack upon the Cambrian line. The homesters were kept well inside their own 25 line. The Treherbert forwards heeled from a scrum, and D. Green (inside half) whipped the ball away to his outside partner, W. Williams. Without hesitation, the latter ran clean through the onnosition and scored a most daring and clever try. Colwill failed with the kick. W. Williams scored another try after a fine individual effort, and W. H. Colwill added the goal with a nne kick. After the "breather," the home team made strenuous efforts to reduce the visitors' substantial lead. Satisfied with their 8 points start, Treherbert were con- tent to just hold Cambrian in check, and this they did with superb stamina until the whistle sounded "no side." -rj-W. Williams was the hero of the game, i j- displayed both opportunism and •n,dl7idualism in scoriftg the two tries. full-back, W. H. Colwill was as great as ever. D. Green also played well. Among the visiting forwards T. Davies, Smith and P. R. Raymond were the Pick. As the Treherbert. players were leaving the field, several of them were attacked bv the Cambrian supporters, and they had to run to their dressing room. Not being in safety here, they were compelled to leave as quickly as possIble-unwashed, and not completely dressed. FERNDALE ROVERS 6pts., DINAS 0. This League match was played on the Darran Grounds, Ferndale, before a fair crowd. The visitors wer late in arriving and were without some of their players. Fred Davies kicked off for Ferndale. A scrum was formed in midfield, and Buller Jones receiving, set his backs going, who took play inside the visitors' 25. The Dinas defence was severely tested, but the homesters were prevented from crossing. Dinas went away with a dribble and took play to the centre, where some very scrappy play was wit- nessed. The homesters once more had possession, and W. Davies scored a,beau- tiful try. W. John just failed to majorise from sf difficult angle. From the restart the Rovers were soon on the attack, and Penned their opponents in their own terri- tory. Pierce, picking up in the loose for the homesters, initiated a pretty bout of Passing, and Davies on the wing nearly scored, but was pulled down five yards out. In the second moiety, the homesters Were again pressing, and pretty bouts of Passing enabled them to take play near the line. A free kick was awarded the Hovers, but to no advantage. From a sorum Buller Jones received, and easily put W. Davies over with another try under the posts. The same player, owing to the heavv state of the ball, failed to add to the points.
ASSOCIATION. TON Ggls., SALISBURY CITY 1. This Southern League encounter was played at the Ynys on Saturday under splendid conditions. The visitors came with a representative side, and a good game was expected. On the previous Saturday week, Ton drew with the citizens on their own ground. No small attraction was the appearance of Norris, of West Ham, the new centre forward, for Ton. Soon after the start, Ton went away with some dash, and play settled for some time in the visitors' quarters. A fair fusilade of shots was kept up, and the visiting goalie had a very warm time. Norris, from the start, was very Illuch in evidence, and after some pretty play, sent home a, beautiful shot, perhaps ==-- the prettiest goal that has been scored this year. A most pleasing feature was the splendid combination of the home- sters, Norris and Bradshaw being most conspicuous. Norris was not long before sending in his second shot. Appleby, on the left wing, after a smart dribble, soon followed suit. Johnnv Williams who was most prominent on the right, again sent in a stinging shot which found itc. mark. Hugh Williams also headed the ball in very neatly from a corner kick. After the restart, the visitors seemed to play with more determination, and the homesters were very nearly caught napping upon several occasions. Play from now on became more of an even nature, and the City men were far from being disheartened, and playedvith more energy than in the initial half. The fine combination of the homesters witnessed in the early stages of the game was con- spicuous bv its absence in the latter half. The homesters, no doubt, became a little careless in their play, and played up to the measure of their opponents. Norris, the latest capture, fell off considerably. Bradshaw was the most prominent of the home forwards, and played his usually clean scientific game. Curtis and Appleby came next. Roberts was not quite up to his usual standard. Of the half-backs, Hugh Williams was the pick, although Johnny Williams was prominent at times. Russell, at back, performed well, as also did Jack Jones. Percival, in goal, had a rather easy time of it compared with his vis-a-vis, who, although six goals were scored against him, played a sterling game. It was only his fine defence that prevented a few more being registered. The only goal scored by the visitors was the result of a pretty piece of work. The ball travelled from the visitors' half right away to the home quarters, when Preth- rick had no difficulty in finding the net. With Norris now as the pivot, the Reds should prove a fine combination in the front line in their future games. ST. CYNON'S 2g1s., FERNDALE ALL BLACKS 1. These two teams met last Saturday on the Pontrhondda Grounds in a League encounter. St. Cynon's started against the wind and soon got on the attack. Ferndale drew first blood, but St. Cynon's soon equalised. After half-time, the St. Cynon's for- wards outclassed the visitors, but could not score until late in the game. Allen drove in a fine shot and scored just in time to have a lead of one over the All Blacks. St. Cynon's have some good for- wards, hut- they ought to practise more at shooting and not try to rush the ball to goal. TREHERBERT UNITED 2gls., MAINDY JUNIORS 1. This match was played at Trenerbert in fine weather on Saturday. The United were minus Bonnell (right wing), who was substituted by R. Pitman (of Treherbert Athletic R.F.C.); W. Griffiths (right half), substituted by L. G. Walters; and B. J. Williams (left half), substituted by F. Cull. Against the wind in the first half, Tre- herbert played good football, but a pro- minent weakness in the forward line was the left wing. G. Watkins (Treherbert's Centre forward) had hard lines in not scoring on more than one occasion. After receiving a nice pass, R. Pitman doubled back into the centre, and sent in a low shot which the Maindy goalie (W. Rees) failed to hold. After many unsuccessful attempts to equalise, the Maindy forwards eventually combined well, and Watkins (Maindy centre forward) gave the finish- ing touches to the movement by scoring a good goal. The visitors displayed superior com- bination on resuming. They, however, lacked the ability to score. The less polished tactics of their opponents were more effective, and shortly before the end of the game R. Evans scored the win- ning goal for Treherbert after a melee in the goal mouth. PONTYPRIDD COLLEGIATES 5gls., RHONDDA P.T.'S 2. 4 This match was played at Porth on Saturday la:, Pontypridd fielded their strongest side, but the Teachers were obliged to play two reserves. The field was very muddy. The pace waxed hot in the first half, Pontypridd scoring twice through Thomas and the P.T.'s once through T. Llewellyn. In the second half, Pontypridd used their superior weight to great advantage, and the home defenders had a very warm time. W. Howells succeeded in shooting a goal for the Rhonddaites, but for this one Pontypridd scored three, the scorers being Thomas, Evans and Jones. Bonnell and W. Howells were the stars of the Rhondda team. Of the visiting eleven, Jones and Thomas were the pick. ABERDARE INTERMEDIATE SCHOOL 6gls., PORTH INTERMEDIATE 0. Abedar.e visited Porth with a fine team on Saturday. Porth were very poorly represented. From start to finish the superiority of the visiting team was always evident, and the spectators were delighted with their splendid combined rushes into the home territory. For Aberdare. three goals were scored in the initial half of the game by T. Reynolds (2) and Oxenham. But for the great defence of S. Breeze (the Porth goalie), the score would have been considerably augmented. On resuming, the Porth forwards made several plucky but unsuccessful attempts to pierce the opposition. Although Breeze again kept goal in an admirable manner, he was beaten by three more shots which reached the net. The scorers again were Oxenham (2) and Trevor Reynolds. Gibbon, Oxenham and Revnolds were the stalwarts of the Aberdare side, whilst Breeze, L. Edwards, and the right wing were the best for Porth. I
Shots for Goal. Ton are to be congratulated upon the decisive victory over Salisbury City. The score 6—1 is a most creditable perform- ance. Ton's ground* record still remains intact. The Ton Committee are to be compli- mented upon the production of their team cards," which are on sale during the game. This is an entirely new fea- ture in conection with Soccer games in South Wales. Ton seems to have found the right man at last in the person of Norris, West Ham. He makes no mistake in sending in his shots if anywhere near the shoot- ing area. He has been -signed on, and will make his appearance again against Welton on Saturday. The Reds' performances in the Western League up to date are as follow: Played, 11; won, 5; lost, 3; drawn, 3. Their position is fifth on the table. In the Southern League Ton stands second on the table, being led by Stoke. Since the beginning of the year, Ton have scored 28 goals. Three have been registered against them. Bradshaw was the pick of the forwards on Saturday. He is coolness personified. His display is quite classy. It is to be hoped now, with the inclu- sion of Norris and A--leby in the front line, the Ton men will render an excel- lent account of themselves. Johnny Williams got through a great deal of hard work on Saturday. Johnny's display would be vastly improved if he parted with the ball sooner. Treherbert Athletics had to postpone their League match against Tylorstown, which should have been played at Tre- herbert on Saturday, because the local Northern Union team had engaged the field. The Athletics have lost the services of their capital secretary, Mr. Tom Hibbs. He has done. more for amateurism at Treherbert than anyone, and lie has now accepted a place on the committee of the Rhondda. Old Boys' League. His place has been taken by Mr. T. J. Peregrine. After their victory over Cambrian Res. on Saturday, the 'Treherbert Ex-School- boys are now far and away the winners of the medals given in the Second Divi- sion of the Old Boys' League. It has been rumoured that Mr. Sid Mainwaring (secretary of the now defunct Treherbert Amateur R.F.C.) is again working up another amateur Rugby team at Treherbert. Mr. Mainwaring is, auditor to the Welsh Football Union. He was secretary of the former Treherbert Amateur R.F.C. for no less than thirteen years. Treherbert N.U. have not won a single match this season. What a record! The Ferndale Rovers Committee have at last found two excellent half-backs in Buller Jones and W. Davies. D. Davies (ctedwr). the right wing of the Rovers, was great against Dinas. His fine runs and his dash for the line were a source of great delight to the crowd. Vigars, Evans, Richards, and Fred Davies were the pick of the home for- wards against Dinas. Treorchy premiers, though suffering from the absence of Daly James (full- back) and D. W. Jones (inside half), beat Llwynypia easily on the Athletic Grounds before a good crowd on Saturday by 8 points to nil. A rumour which sets local football en- thusiasts uneasy, is that Will Morgan, leader-forward to the Treorchy premiers, is going North. The Treorchy Old Boys retained their prestige on Saturday, by scoring 3 points against Rhydfelan's nothing. Will Morris is to be accredited with the victory, for after a* short race and a splendid pick-up, he scored a brilliant try.
Football Hooliganism. (By FAIRPLAY "). A most disgraceful scene occurred at Clydach Vale last Saturday after a foot- ball match between Treherbert Ex- Schoolboys and Cambrian Lads. The players were leaving the field after the match, when, shame to state for no other possible reason than. that they sup- ported the side which had lost, the Cam- brian crowd openly attacked the Treher- bert players. Some of the young lads were struck upon the face, others thrown to the ground and kicked in the back and ribs; whilst as they escaped down the hillside as best they could to the dossing room, they were pelted with stones. They eventually reached the headquarters, breathless and utterly exhausted. One Treherbert forward had been so badly abused that he collapsed upon the floor and burst into tears. Even at the hotel they were not secure from assault. A policeman was summoned to protect some of the players. Taking but little time to change their clothes, the Ex-Schoolboys players cleared out of the dressing room as quickly as possible. Many were un- washed, but were kindly permitted to perform their ablutions in certain private houses on the way to Tonypandy T.Y.R. Station. A team cannot always expect to win, but because Cambrian happened to be defeated on Saturday, the Clydach Vale snorts (???) evidently thought that they were justified in revenging upon the un- offending winning team. Our national winter sport is disgraced by such malicious behaviour, but, at any rate, other teams will now know what to expect if they win at Clydach Vale.

Tonypandy. The Primitive Methodists of the Rhondda Circuit were on Sunday and Monday last favoured with a visit by the Rev. H. Yooll, of Newcastle-on-Tyne (ex- president of Conference), the occasion being the anniversary services of the Local Preachers' Association. On Sunday, the rev. gentleman preached three times to excellent congregations. Mrs. R. Dalli- more rendered a solo, "Teach me," at the evening service. On Monday after- noon, a conference was held, when the Rev. H. Yooll gave the topic, entitled The Progressiveness of Revelation." Open discussion followed, several local preachers taking part.

Penygraig and District Perfect Thrift Building Society. The Annual Meeting. The eighteenth annual meeting of the above Society was held on Friday last at Heycock's Assembly Rooms, Tonypandy, when Mr. T. P. John, Trealaw Schools, presided over an excellent attendance. The Secretary (Mr. Tom Evans, miners' agent) read the annual statement of accounts, and stated that the Society continues in a very flourishing condition. Eight hundred pounds had been advanced during the year on house property, thus increasing the total amount advanced from the commencement of the Society to over £ 10,694. Arrears of contribu- tions, however, had interfered with the holding of a larger number of ballots during the year, but it was intimated that offenders would henceforth be severely dealt with. Mr. D. M. Williams (the official auditor), who was accorded a hearty wel- come upon his first appearance at the Society's meetings, warmly eulogised the secretary for the excellent manner in which he had kept the books, and testi- fied to the correctness of the accounts. Mr. Williams had thoroughly overhauled the fire insurances receipts and the mort- gage deeds lying at the Metropolitan Bank, and declared that all were very satisfactory. Mr. D. J; Lewis (the member's auditor), who had conducted an inde- pendent audit, confirmed Mr. Williams' remarks. Nine nominations were received for the four vacancies on the directorate, and Messrs. T. P. John, Trealaw; John G. Davies, Llwynypia; Richard Pugh, Torty- pandy; and Robert Davies, Tonypandy. The first three of these had held this position for many years. The other directors are Messrs. J. W. Jones, Tony- pandy; David Henshaw, Penygraig; Joseph Jones, M.B.G., Penygraig; and Geo. Evans, Tonypandy, who were not retiring. Messrs. D. M. Williams and D. J. Lewis were reappointed auditors for the ensuing year. x xl An omnibus resolution of hearty thanks for their services to the chairman, secre- tary, assistant secretary (Mr. Arthur Jones, Penygraig), directors, auditors, scrutineers and ballot boy terminated the meeting. The Ballot Meeting. A ballot for an appropriation, free of interest, was held immediately before the annual meeting, and was presided over by Mr. J. Nest Jones, Trealaw. The secretary expalined the mode of ballot- ing to a large number of members and the. public, and stated that, according to rule no director or other officer could take part in the proceedings, and the members thus were compelled to select their chairman, scrutineers, &c., for the evening. The winning number, 182, was h61d by Mr. W. Davies, The Chandlery, Trealaw, who wohld receive £ 200 free of interest. These meetings are usually very spirited, and much excitement prevails when a win- ning number is in arrear, as numbers thus cannot participate in an appropriation. The ballot* is then repeated, and as many as three or four ballots have been drawn the same evening for this reason. It must be tantalising to a member who in- advertently fails on clearing night to provide himself with sufficient cash to clear both his wife's and his own contri- butions, and gallantly pays up for his wife, to find that his own lot was drawn! Applications for the few vacant num- bers on the Society's books may be made to the secretary or either of the directors.
