Late Spring Foot Race


Treherbert.
On Saturday last, a 130 yards’ foot race for stakes of £10 a-side took place between W. Allen, Treherbert, and Tom Evans, Penyrenglyn, on the Treherbert Football Grounds. A crowd of several hundred witnessed the race.

From the start it seemed that Evans had secured a short lead, but Allen caught up in little over thirty yards. At half the distance Allen had gained a yard, and breasted the tape at least 3 1/2 yards before his rival.
