    ARLECDON RED ROSE  v. MORESBY.
 
    Played at Arlecdon, on Saturday, before a
good number of spectators.  Mr. J. FINLINSON
officiated as referee.  The visitors kicked off,
and in about ten minutes play Arlecdon scored
through T. STABLES.  Moresby now played up
well, but the home eleven made head-way,
and the result was that two more goals were
put on by Arlecdon before half-time.  Mores-
by, by careful play, got the leather through
the uprights twice.  In the second half Arlec-
don had matters very much their own way
and LITTLE, STAINTON, and SABLES showed
up prominently; shots were repeatedly sent
in to the Moresby custodian, three of which
scored.  The visitors played a hard and fast
game, but FROST and BAKER at back were
bad to beat, and they only managed to score
once.  Result:--Arlecdon Red Rose, 6 goals;
Moresby, 3 goals.

    These teams met on the Keekle ground on Sat-
urday, before a poor gate, in wretched weather.

opened their score.  By good combined play the
visitors equalised with a good shot.  ROONEY
gave the villagers the lead.  In the second half
Keekle soon got the upper hand, and had matters
pretty well their own way.  T. KNOX,  J. STEVENS,
and J. CLARK further increased their score.
Result: Keekle, 5 goals;  Harrington, 1 goal.
Referee,  Mr. P. LACEY,  Frizington.

    WHITEHAVEN UNITED  v.  EGREMONT
                         RED STAR
 
    Played in the Cricket Field, Whitehaven,
on Saturday before a fair attendance.  The
turf was in a bad state.  The visitors won
the toss and played with the wind.  The
home team pressed from the commence-
ment and ultimately ran out easy winners
by 10 goals to nothing.
