On Saturday last Denbigh entertained Holy- bead, the runners-up for the League championship last season. Denbigh made two changes from the selected team, Luther Evans playing instead of R Hughes, who is laid up with influenza, and the old captain, R T Williams, playing instead of Tom Davies, who was unwell. Holyhead brought a strong team down, with the full intention of winning. The referee was Mr E LI Williams, Bangor, and the teams were: Denbigh: Sam Griffiths, goal; Lewis E Rees and J S Williams, backs L Evans, T A Davies (capt), and R T Williams, half-backs; E E Davies, W E Hughes, J Ellis Edwards, H Randles, and D Berwyn Davies, forwards. Holyhead: H Williams, goal; W H Parry and R Ellis, backs; W Taylor (capt), W T Jones, and W Brown, half-backs; W S Owen, R C Jones, J Rowlands, H Brown, and J Jones, forwards. Denbigh won the toss and played down the slope. The game opened in a sensational manner, for, directly from the kick-off, the homesters got down the field together, and a I corner was forced by Berwyn Davies, off Parry. It was well placed, but the centre- half relieved. Holyhead got away, but nothing substantial resulted, Denbigh at length getting away on the left, and Davies sending in a fine centre, but the home pivot sent over the bar from an easy position. From the goal kick the homesters got down on the right, but, when Davies was favourably placed, Hughes got off- side and spoilt a good opening. Griffiths was next called upon to save off Rowlands. The visitors were not long in returning, for Rees miskicked, and Griffiths again saved off Row- lands. A nice forward rush was clip..tced by Parry, and T A Davies had a good try aD scor- ing, the ball travelling a trifle wide. Following good work in front ot the visitors' goal, Evans returned and Edwards found the net with a shot which gave the custodian no chance of saving. The visitors were not long in retali- ating, R C Jones and Rowlands, by good play, taking the ball up, the latter shot in, and, Griffiths clearing weafeiy, he had no difficulty in equalising with a grand shot. Denbigh per- sistently attacked the visitors' goal, and Ed- wards sent in a lightning drive which the cus- todian was lucky to save by lifting over the bar. To the surprise of all, however, the referee awarded a goal kick. Berwyn Davies had a good run down, but finished badly. This did not deter the homesters, who kept the visitors penned in their own half, and the cus- todian made a very lucky save off Edwards, after fine work on the home right. Holyhead broke away on the left wing and crashed the ball against the not, outside the posts, after a fine run, and at the other end E E Davies repeated the performance. The visitors again rallied for an attack, and R T Williams headed away when a goal looked certain. J Jones, the outside left of the visitors, was the most dan- gerous man on the Holyhead side at this stage of the game, but he sometimes finished badly. During an attack on the Holyhead goal T A Davies was hurt in a collision with W T Jones, but soon resumed. A fine centre by Owen, who rounded R T Williams well, was nearly turned into accuunt by J Jones, but the ball travelled a trifla wide. Half-time arrived after Williams had saved finely off Edwards, and Holyhead were advancing when the whistle qed. Half-time score: Denbigh 1, Holyhead 1. Things looked black for Denbigh at the com- mencement of the secoud half, when, owing to a mistake between the home backs and half- backs, R C Jones had the goal at his mercy. Griffiths hesitated as to what he should do, and the forward had no difficulty in putting the visitors a goal to the good. After this reverse, the homesters strove hard for the equaliser, and E E Davies sprinted up and sent in a fine shot, which the custodian cleared. The venue was changed, and Rees conceded a corner from which H Brown missed an open goal. Fine defensive play by T A Davies was the means of sendiDg E E Davies away, and he had very hard-luck in not scoring. Holyhead attacked, 6at a free kick against R C Jones for impeding TLID goalkeeper put Berwyn Davies in posses- sion. He put in one of his characteristic runs, and, taking the shet on the run, came very near scoring, the ball hitting the upright with terrific force, and glancing in just as the goal- keeper got his hand to it. Llew Rees returned the ball from midfield as a result of a goal-kick, and placed Berwyn Davies again in possession. He centred accurately to Edwards, who equal- ised the scores amidst tremendous cheering. Davies again repeated the performance, but Taylor stopped him by handling the ball, the free kick proving of no material advantage. After good work on the visitors left wing, B C Jones once more put his side ahead, and im- mediately afterwards Hughes centred for Edwards to score his third goal. Holyhead fought hard for the lead after this, and a oorner was forced off J S Williams, which ended in Evans giving another. This was not taken in the orthodox manner, as J Jones passed the ball to Brown, but the manoevre did not prove successful, Brown being given off-side. Holy- head continued to hold the upper hand in the closing stages, and forced several corners, but the defence of the homesters held out, and in the last few minutes Denbigh broke away twice, but to no avail, and the game ended in a draw. Final score: „ Denbigh 3, Holyhead 3. QQLWYN BA.Y RESERVES v. DENBIGH CHURCH GUILD. This 'match was played on the Penrhos ground, in a gale of wind, last Saturday. The visitors had a strong team, but the Bay were compelled, at the last minute, to make several Changes, owing to those chosen failing to put in an appearance. Owing to the late arrival of the Denbigh pi tyers, a start was not made until a quarter to four. The teams lined up as follows :— Colwyn Bay Reserves: W C Roberts, goal H HAGHES and R J Lloyd, backs; "Ned" Gc.rti'ihs (capt), q. Hughes, and H Pritchard, half-backs W H 4ughes, F Bond, W Jone3, R Jones, and J P DASHES, forwards. Denbigh Church Guild: W S 3ayle, goal D Hughes and E Hughes, backs; G B Pilgrim, D Graham Evans, and W LI wis, half-backs; Fred Lloyd (capt). E Barnett Jones, W Rawson Hughes, T D Newell, and T G Eiwards, forwards. Referee Mr C J Thorn v*, Bingor. Denbigh won the toss, and elected to play against a strong wind, which was blowina, from the Chapel end. From the kick-off. Griffi hs and H ighes gave tieir forwtrii PJ33)33BA el and the ball was smartly run down the fild. Considerable pressure was exerted on the Denbigh goal, and in the first ten minutes the ball crossed the half-way line but twice. A breakaway by the visitors was checked BY G Hughes, with a clever overhead kick, after which the first attempt to score was made, Bond hooking the ball into the goalmouth, buc. Sayle managed to effect a save. In pite of the ) fact that the Bay were having the better of the play, they were lamentably weak near goal, and several palpable chance-; were The Denbigh backs were forced to CONCEDE corners, from one of which J P Hughes ju"t missed heading through. Following a mitkick by a Denbigh half, W Jones ran in and scored, after thirteen minutes' play. From 'hs kick- off the Bay pressed once again their backs were playing on the half-way line, so convincing was their superiority at this juncture, although they received much assistance from the wind. The combination of their forwards was scircely I ideal, however, so Bond and W H Hughes changed places. Later in the game the latter went centre-forward, W Jones taking the out-ide-right position. A free kick was nicely taken by Pritchard, but after bobbing about the goal for several seconds the ball landed on the top of the net. Denbigh now asserted themselves, and, Pilgrim cleverly checking T IE Bay left wing, a determine:1 attack WAS made on the home goal, Roberts tffec ing a good save, though brought to his knees. The players found it difficult to keep a foothold on the silippery turf, and the Guild spoilt a promising movement by over-running the ball. Hughes and Lloyd were playing too far up tlim field, consequently a breakaway by Denbigh was always dangerous. After Koberts had saved twice in succession, in fine style. a good run by the Bay was spoilt by off-side. From the free- kick the visitors attacked in earnest, and their halves initiated a fine movement; ifoe ball wa* sent across the field from the lefn wing, and the Bay left tack, missing his kick <">mpletely, let in Fred Lloyd, who gave Roberta no chance with a fast ground shot, thus equ-tlisiiiz seven minutes from half-time. Play now brightened up, and each end was visited in turn. Griffiths just failed with a Irmg shot, while on the stroke of the interval Pilgrim Rived a certain goal by charging J P Hughes over in the nick of time. Half-time Colwyn Bay 1, Denbigh 1. Play in the first half had been fairly interesting, but the wind exercised a strong influence on the game, in the Bay's favour. With the wind at their backs, however, it was thought that Denbigh would be equally agressive, and so it proved. On resuming, the first movement of note was a fine run by Fred Lloyd, who easily outpaced his oponents, only to send the ball over the bar. Denbigh were frequently pulled up for offside, their forwards on several occasions waiting in their opponents' half for passes from their backs. The Bay lost, one fine opportunity of scoring by omitting to rush Sayle, when he fumbled the ball in clear- ing. Denbigh then attacked in determined fashion, and after Lewis, Graham Evans, T G Edwards, Tom Newell, aud Rawson Hughes had given a short exhibition of short passing. Barnett Jones scored from close in, ten minutes after the re-start. This seemed to put the home side on their mettle, and, rushing down, they obtained a corner. This was well placed by Griffiths, but the ball was quickly returned to the other end, and Roberts had to run out to clear. G Hughes was then responsible for a fine effjrt, but the bali went wide. The backs on both sides were playing a good game, and the defence was vastly superior to the attack. There were few incidents of note for some time, the exchanges being even in character. Seven minutes from THE close Griffiths bad no difficulty in placing his side on level terms, easily converting a penalty, given for bands, against Walt Lewis. The Guild had the better of the play from now, until the whistle blew with the result: Colwyn Bay 2, Denbigh 2.
