COAST SENIOR LEAGUE. LLANDUDNO AMATEURS v. BANGOR UNIVERSITY. ANOTHER TWO POINTS FOR THE MODERN ATHENIANS. (BY "VIGILANT. I have always had, and always shall have, a great admiration for the young men at Modern Athens, while they play the kind of game we saw on Saturday. I expected much, and got it. The University boys are a fine lot. They play the game. They play to win, and achieve it more often than otherwise. I predicted" they would make a good show in the League, and they are giving us of their best. It is a class of football that fascinates, and whilst there were no cheers when the Athenians left the ground after a decisive victory, there was, how- ever, a subdued admiration for their talents in the breasts of the spectators. The University team is a well-balanced one. They are all in- telligent young men in the full blood of joyful youth, and with the mastering of the art of the game, and a good conception of real sport, they are able to, command success and deserve it, THE ATHENIANS DRAW BLOOD. The weather was fine and cold, and there was also a breeze blowing from the sea. A good gate assembled to see the game, and the 'Varsities were cordially received, as was expected. The Bangor men were without that clever half, W. J. Jones, of Llanfairfechan—the ex-Con way, ex- B,eaumarisian.tl-ian whom there is not a harder working or more gentlemanly half, along the North Wales Coast, and indeed a great deal fur- ther than that. The Cormorants were at full strength, such as it is, and Johnny Williams was a spectator on the stand. I was anything but pleased with the exhibition of the Cormorants, and unless there is some change made and .1. levelling-up of tactics, and in grit and tact, the 'Chers will have to take a back seat in their cup-ities. They have had the luck this year in the matter of draws. Let us then see some play worthy of the name of Llandudno. When I say this, I do not mean, in the slight- est degree, to detract from the meritorious win of the Athenians but simply to. point out that such an exhibition as we: saw from Llandudno last Saturday is really not worth a Thrushes Thranion," as the Irishman from Cork would say. However, I will comment elsewhere. To the game. The following were the sides, under the command of Mr Walter J. Parry, of Colwyn Day:- Llandudno: Stallard, goal; J. H. Jones and W. Wynne, backs; W. Edwards, S. Johnson, ana Harold Pearson (captain), halves; W. A. Wil- liams, Brookes-Evans, Jack Brown, Bob Davies, and Jimmy Williams, forwards. Bangor University Daniels, goal; Owen and C. H. Jones, backs; Arthur Williams, Don Csf.'sar de Rowlands, and Brock, halves T. E. Jones, Matthews, Wright, Smedley (captain), and Claude Davies, forwards. Llandudno- won the toss, and played with the breeze behind them, towards the Llanrhos goal. Wright started the sphere, and in a few moments Stallard was called on to save. Then Llandud- no put in a movement that, augured well; but the nippy defence- of the Athenians saved any damage to their reputation. Playing with a pur- pose, the. men of the Classic City forged ahead, and Claude, the dasher," got hold of the ball, and flew down the wing with one of his char- acteristic rushes, and centred most accurately, but none of his colleagues were smart enough to trap the sphere, and it sailed to the foot of an. opponent. Pressing on, a corner was secured by the visitors, and Stallard had to save at the expense of a corner, and the downfall of Llan- dudno seemed imminent. Then Llandudno tried their luck, and were able to gain a corner. Jimmy Williams took this, and placed, the ball as perfect as could be, and Brookes-Evans. nearly got one in by a fine attempt that just passed the post. Smiedley, at the other end, tried his luck with a rasper, that just went wide, and W. A. Williams, for Llan- dudno, disappointed the crowd with. a miserable attempt. Wright and Smedley gave a good show of understanding, and the ball was sent out to Claude, who was, however, offside. Later, Arthur Williams;, when pressed, gave a corner, and Bob Davies tried with a long shot to open the score. W. A. Williams, on the extreme right, was woefully weak. T. E. Jones got a good opening and centred and the ball was missed as it new across the goalmouth, and Don Caesar de Rowlands gave a judicious long pass to Claude, who ended the work by shooting wide. MATTHEWS DOES THE TRICK. Jack Brown was given a good chance to. score, but egregiously failed, and the 'VarsititelS played gamely up Stallardwards and the ball, by some of the 'Chers, was thought to. be out of play. It was, however, curled (in, and; to. the amazement of the crowd, Matthews placed the ball in. the net, with the 'Chers looking on. When will players learn to go on playing instead of making them- selves ridiculous by stopping playing as though they were all referees I have not the slightest sympathy with Llandudno for their conduct, for they should have played on. One referee is enough, and I say it served Llandudno- quite right. Not a cheer was raised, but a funereal silence prevailed. The 'Varsity boys were show- ing more finished methods, and a far better understanding than their rivals, and consequent- ly were more dangerous; when they got going, which was delightful to. behold from a pure foot- ball standpoint. Several narrow squeaks were seen in the Llandudno goalmouth, but Stallard was safe. One crashing shot came in, and from Stallard's save the ball was met and bounded to the crossbar at terrific force, and curled largely into play again. "What a piece of luck. What a piece of luck, indeed. The game: after this became more even, and Llandudno tried to avenge the reverse; but were met with a more stubborn resistance. Good ding-dong play was the order for a time, but the 'Varsities were smarter on the ball a great deal than Llandudno. However, the home lot got towards Daniels, and had the hardest of lines in not placing the ball past him.. Several heroic attempts were made, but the fates were against them, and half-time arrived with the score University, i Llandudno, o. WRIGHT INCREASES THE LEAD. Upon resuming Stallard had to save in. the first minute, and shortly afterwards little Willie Edwards got hurt and had to retire for the rest of the game.. Everyone regretted this, because Llandudno were hard pressed with eleven men, and it was a great weakening to have one less, and that player such a worrier as W. E. Ban- gor played a sparkling game. It was neat, methodical, and splendidly effective. The com- bination, at times, was delightful, and never was the "Varsity play dull. Don was all there, and playing strongly, and the neat-looking Brock wasl a glutton for work, and playing good foot- ball. They were giving exactly what I ex- pected, whilst Llandudno, only on very rare occasions, gave one an idea that they would win. Their methods were rarely of the winning order. The only forward that was working well on the home side was Broobes-Evans, and lie did really put in all he knew. Good old Brook- •sey! More of ypur stamp are needed in the front rank, for I really cannot imagine a cup being won by miles if your colleagues don't im- prove upon such an exhibition as Saturday. The play of the Bangor men was so persistent, that Wright managed to score with a long fast shot that gave Stallard small chance of saving. Mat- ters were now looking bad for Llandudno, and to make matters worse, J. H. Jones comes among the forwards. A most ridiculous thing for a back to do, and I understand, against the wishes of his captain. This is to be regretted, as it spoilt what! little understanding there may have been. One must have discipline even in foot- ball on the Coast, and I hope such a thing will not be repeated. SMEDLEY PUTS ON No. 3. Wright was again prominent with some good work, and Jimmy Williams, shortly after, forced a corner off the redoubtable Don. This

BANGOR RESERVES v. CONWAY. LLEW SAVES PENALTIES. (BY C-WILY-NI. ) These teams met in a League encounter at Bangor on Saturday in splendid football weather. The attendance during the first half of the match was only meagre, but during the second moiety, a fairly good crowd lined the ropes—but still a vast difference to the number that lined the enclosure on the occasion of the Chester match on the previous Saturday. Mr Welch, of Crewe, was in charge of the game, and he discharged his duties capably. The teams were:- Bangor: H. R. Williams, goal; Ireland and D. J. Thomas, backs; Arthur Owen, W. Parry, and D. J. Davies, halves; Harrv Rowlands, Hughie Owen, H. J. Davies, Ivor Thomas, and Harry Evans, forwards. Conway: Lliew Parry, goal; Tom Jones and Owen Ellis, backs W. Evans, Bob Owen, ana Sam Hughes, halves T. Craven, Jo-p Hughes, D. O. Davies., T. Morgan, and Sam Parry, for- wards. The visitors had the choice of ends, and at- tacked the town goal. The inclusion of Hughie Owen in the home team was hailed with de- light. Hughie is home on leave from the Em- press of Ireland," which recently narrowly es- caped fire. His football is still in him, for he is one of the sihiijing lights of the steamer's eleven, and recently his photograph, together with that of Charlie Burns and Will Evans, ap- peared in a Canadian newspaper as members of the steamer's eleven. The game started briskly. Morgan neatly robbing Owen, but his excellent position- was nullified by Craven getting offisidle. Each end' was visited in turn, and the visiting custodian nearly let his side down, by rushing out of his charge, but very luckily he managed to get the ball away. The homesters commenced to press as a result of a free kick, which was accurately placed, but Rowlands, unfortunately, handled while the ball was travelhng between the sticks. Conway forwards were very slow when. in the home half, but the game was spoilt up to now by the huge punting of the half- backs and the backs of both teams, so. that the forwards had very little opportunity of making headway. A smart attempt was made bv Joe Hughes with an overhead shot, which Ireland just managed to divert. The visitors:' citadel was subjected to. some narrow escapes now. A fine punt by Rowlands was diverted by the puny Llew, but Ivor Thomas rushed up, and crasn-ea the ball—over the crossbar, to the chagrin of the spectators. A spurt up the field by Tom Craven looked dangerous, but when in, close proximity to the goal he was precipitated to mother earth by Thomas, who. cleared the lines. Bangor for- wards showed superior form to. the visitors, but they were held in check by a. sterling pair of backs. Rowlands worked hard on the right, and in a minute or two Hughie drew first blood with. a lightning shot which struck the upright and glanced into the net. Hughie again became dan:- gerous, but Llew was on the alert. Conway now had the best of matter's, and a determined at- tack on the left was only checked by Ireland kicking out of play. Later, Joe Hughes, with the assistance of Davies., sailed away, and the former had broken through, and when appearing ,9 to walk the ball through. Thomas rushed up and saved in the nick of time. Joe, you must learn to shoot whenever you get the opportunity. It was a glorious chance you missed. Again the visitors attacked, and Sam Parry, from long range, gave H. R. a teaser to deal with and at the other end Evans scored an offside goal. The game was very slow, and very little excite- ment prevailed. A nice movement on the part of Rowlands culminated in Hughie Owen regis- tering Bangor's second point, the fault for which lay at the door of Sam Hughes, who made a miskiiick and let Rowlands have a clear field. Close upon half-time, the homesters continued the. pressure, and Rowlands made some gallant attempts to score. Llalf-time arrived with Bangor, 2 Conwav. o. The first incident of note in, the second half was a free kick given against Bob Owen, but no advantage was gained. For the next quarter of an hour, the game was miserable to watch from a spectator's point of view. It was devoid of any combination, and most of the time appeared toi be spent in throwing the ball in. Hughie Owen; was the only dangerous player on the field, and he got through the backs, but was closely followed by Tom Jones, who fouled him, but Hughie regained himself, and was making for a, certain goal, when the whistle bliew and a free kick was given against Conway. It would perhaps have been more satisfactory if the re- feree, seeing that Hughie had regained himself, had allowed him to go on and score, instead of pulling him up, for such a decision will, no doubt, act as an incentive to players to, do the same thing whenever occasion arises. The first corner kick of the match fell tOo Conway, but nothing resulted, and as a result of an attack on the home goal, Sam Parry tested Williams, with a beautiful grounder, which the latter saved at the expense of a corner, and this again was of no avail. The venue was; changed, and a corner kick was awarded the homesters. Harry Evans placed it in beautiful position, and after a scuffle, Ivor Thomas scored No. 3 with a touch into the net, out of the reach of the custodian. The visitors were not depressed, and fought strongly. Tom Craven placed an accurate corner iing to. clear, placed the ball in his own, goal. mouth, and in the melee, D. J. Thomas, in, try- ing to clear, placed the ball in his own goal. From the centre, Harry Evans broke awav but Torn Jones fouled him dangerously near the pen- alty area, but despite, the cries for a penalty, the referee pointed to a spot outside the area. A second later, Bangor again attacked, and Bob Owen foolishly handled as the ball was going in the direction of Llew. A penalty was awarded, and -entrusted to Hughie Owen, but Llew saved amidst, cheers. In a second or two- ,another penalty was given against the visitors, Tom Jones this time handling. D. J. Davies was entrusted with the kick, but his shot went wide, and he shook hands with Hughie. Con- siderable amusement was, caused a minute later when Sam Hughes again handled in the area, and the referee again pointed to the twelve yards' spot. This time Harry Evans was given an opportunity to, try his skill, but Llew gal- lantly saved his shot again;. The referee, how- ever, had whistled for some infringement, and ,a further kick was granted, and at the fourth time of asking, Harry Eivans found the net, amidst Loud cheering. After this, the City men showed their superiority in attack, but the visit- ing defence was sound. HUigthie Owen, how- ever, found them napping on one; occasion, and getting through at lightning speed, gave Llew no chance to. save. Llew was pestered with shots continually, and one beauty by Harry Evans was sailing under the crossbar, when Llew cleverly stopped its career at the expense of a corner, which was well placed by Evans. A run up the field by the Conway men looked dangerous, and a glorious chance of bringing down the lead was missed by Morgan, who, when only a few feet away from the goal, sent the ball over, the spectators remarking that he must have had for his object the church spire and not the goal. The closing stages of the game were in favour of Bangor, who ultimately ran out winners by five goals to one. COMMENTS. From an onlooker's point of view, the game was a miserable one to watch, and the only ex- citement throughout was when the three penal- ties were given again the visitors. The home lot were superior in attack, but the half-backs had very little judgment. The backs played a good defensive game, and H. R. in goal, was very seldom troubled. For Conway, the defence were by far the best part of the team. But for the sturdy play of Tom Jones, Owen Ellis, and Llew bach, the score would undoubtedly have run into; two figures. Bob Owen was the best of the half-back line. He played vigorously throughout, and several free kicks were given against him. The otlher men were not up to. their usual form. 1110 front line were very weak in attack. Davies, the pivot, could not get going—in fact, neither of the five men were up to. much. Sam Parry placed some very nice shots to H. R." Taken on the whole, the team have. considerably deter- iorated since I saw them last play, although I 21 have read an excellent account of their doings against the University on the. previous Saturday.
COAST JUNIOR CUP. SECOND ROUND. LLANRWST v. BLAENAU FESTINIOG. THE HOMESTERS PREVAIL, (By" VEDETTE.") At the start of this match there were but a handful of spectators on the ground, and al- though, in the second half, the attendance was a fair one, this was brought about without bene- fit to the gate." The expedient largely adopted was that off standing on the wall enclosing the field, thereby securing a clear view of the game, and at half-time descending, wriggling under the canvas or crossing the adjoining field, and calmly taking up a position on the line. I saw SOOTes'o,f individuals resort t0' this—a far greater number indeed than paid for admission, and I came away from Llanrwst almost as much im- pressed by the coolness and cheek of local en- thusiasts as I was amazed at the aotionor inaction—of the club officials in allowing such a thing. But why, after all, should a keen fol- lower of our winter pastime disburse the sum of fo,urpence to witness a cup-tie, when, by acting as related above, he can do so. free of charge? Why, indeed The match, is actually advertised for his benefit by a considerate committee, who append the legend All to pay to the bills rnerely out of light-heartednees and in sooth 'tis a merry joke. No doubt the Llanrwst finances warrant this proceeding, but is it quite fair to those clubs, perhaps not so favour,ably situated, with whom they share receipts? Everyone present was perfectly aware that if defeated, the visitors would register a protest. It would seem that half the Llanrwst team are ineligible to take part in this competition, and consequently the disqualification of the club will follow as a matter of course. Teams:- Llanrwst: T. Gillett (captain), goal; J. Wil- liams and Will Trevor, backs Humphrey ROI- berts, R. D. Richards, and Francis Williams, halves; G. Chisholm, A. Gerrard, A. Cleeive, A. Richards;, and Dennis Jones forwards. Blaenau Festinioig: J. Hughes., goal; J. Hughes and W. M. Jones, backs Arthur Wil- liams, W. (Bangor) Jones, and M. E. Morris, halves C. Hughes, J. Hughes, J. Jones (cap- tan), W. R. Owen,, and Evan Lloyd, forwards. Referee Mr C. O. Jones, Bangor. A SMART LEFT WI-NG. Llanrwst showed distinct superiority, and were full value for their victory. Hughes, the Fes- tiniog goalkeeper, gave, a display that was the outstanding feature of the match, and this, in spite- of the fact that he appeared to be at fault when the second goal was scared. There were but few noteworthy incidents, although play was brisk—at time, indeed, the game was most keen- ly contested. In the early part of the first half, Arthur Richards land Dennis Jones- made some pretty runs, and the first goal, which was scored by Chisholm, came about mainly as a result of their efforts. Hughes- was surrounded by play- ers, and had no chance of saving. Subsequent- ly be punched away a corner kick, and C. Hughes made a run. in the course; of which he rounded Trevor and centred with, accuracy. Gil- lett cleared, and R. D. Richards placed his tor- wards in possession, an onslaught to which the Festiniog goal, was subjected, giving Hughes ample opportunity to show his resource. All shots came alike to him, and as the ball, was being cleared, ChJislholm had the misfortune to be kicked in the face. He speedily resumed play, but shortly afterwards Roberts received an injury which necessitated his retirement. In dt- 'tempting to -head the ball, an opponent's boot struck: him over the eye, and inflicted a nasty cut. He was off the field until the middle of the second half, when he returned adorned with sticking plaster, and a pleasing incident, was afforded by his manly action, in cordially grasp- ing the hand of the player who- had unwittingly caused his retirement. GILLETT, THE ACCOMPLISHED. Plav was too one-sided in the first half to be very interesting, but, as a result of a breakaway by Festiniog, Gillett affected a clever s-ave. L. Hughes ran half the length of the field, and beating Trevor, centred. Two of the visitors found themselves a few yards from goal with only Gililett to overcome, but one stumbled, and the other sent in a shot that the custodian man- aged to turn' round the posit, by throwing himself at full length. It was well on in, the second half before Llanrwst increased their one goal lead 'Hughes punched at the ball as it came sailing into- the goalmouth from a corner kick, but he missed it, and I thought Cleeve headed into the net. The prevalent opinion, however, was that one of the Festiniog pilayers headed through his own goal. The third and final point was notched by Der^iis Jones, who gave a de- lightful exhibition in this match. The ball came to him in front of goal, and he promptly netted it was quite refreshing to. see a forward seize on a chance and make the most of it. There is no dilly-dallying about Jiones. Unon receiving the ball he tears down the wing and swings it across. Occasionally, he was dispossessed by Arthur Williams, but more often than not he showed the right half a clean p-air of heels. I liked Jones's play. CONCERNING THE PLAYERS. jQ'ther Llanrwst players impressed me favour- ably, too. Trevor ils still very slaiÍe in his kick- ing, and the tear-away back of yore. J. Wil- liams rendered the necessary assistance in. cap- able style. Without doubt, the halves are the real strength, of Llanrwst. Humphrey Roberts, the courageous R. D. Ridhards, the masterful, and Francis Williams, the persistent, compose- a trio of players of which any Coast League club might well be proud. Richards, like Trevor, does not hesitate to use his weight,, but always, as (Continued on page 5).

Catalogue upon application to the Local Dealer, Or to 36 Queen Victoria Street, London, E'C. was well placed, and Bob Davies only missed netting by inches. Then a little dash was shown by Llandudno, and it was indeed hard lines that the Cormorants could not score. Brookes-Evans crashed in a teaser that acted in a like manner to that mentioned in Bangor's case in the first half. But luck had left Llandudno, and that with their indifferent play, lost them goals. To make things sure, Smedley clapped on No. 3, which was a regula rbeauty. It savoured of the Beaumaris-Smedleyian flavour. Don' it we re- member those well! LLANDUDNO'S SOLATIUM A PENALTY. Whilst Llandudno were having, for a while, the better of the exchanges, they gained a pen- alty. B rookes-Evans took the kick, and scored in such a manner that no one could quibble ,about it. Daniels saw not the ball until it was netted, and the cheer that greeted its plant- ing was good, but it had a ring of hopeless,- ness about it. However, it was some satisfac- tion to have a cheer of some sort, and as time wtas drawing to a close, it looked as though the 'Varsities would increase their lead. The ex- pected on either side came not, and for the first tÍime in two- seasons the Cormorants were de- feated on their own ground in a League match, and that by a League Baby—a big Baby, too- the. men of Modern .Athens. Final: Bangor University, 3; Llandudno, 1. BRIEFLETS. The best team won. No two opinions. Ban- gor showed classy football. LlléùDidudno diidn t. Congratulations! ye men of Modern Athens! To Llandudno-, I say, a regular reformation and pruning is, needed,.
