Saints Beat ‘Spa Men’

August 23rd, 2016

The Saints won 3-0 tonight against Llandrindod Wells FC with all three goals coming in the first half.

Midfielder Stu Davies opened the scoring in the 12th minute getting on the end of a Brendan Hackett corner.

Ryan Davies made it 2-0 in the 19th minute when he beat the offside trap and rounded ‘The Dod’ keeper. The third goal came in the 29th minute, Hackett took a short corner to Rob Snedden who whipped in a ball which bounced around in the area, the first to react was centre half Chris Preece who fired home from eight yards out.

We dominated the rest of the half but couldn’t break down a stubborn defence.

The second half was more even with Llandod having their fair share of possession and chances. Ryan Davies found the back of the net again but was adjudged to have been offside by the official.

Ft 3-0.

Thanks to R M Jones for sponsoring the game. They chose Stu Davies as their man of the match.

League Action.

August 22nd, 2016

hay-st-marys-2620.jpg

The Saints welcome Llandrindod Wells FC to Forest Road tonight (Tuesday) for a Spar League Division 1 encounter.

Bar opens 6.15pm.

Saints v Llandrindod Wells FC  k.o. 7.30pm.

Entrance £3.

The Gaffer had this to say “We played Llandrindod at the end of last season and narrowly won 1-0 through an own goal. I was very impressed with them that night. They have lost players to Rhayader this season but have actually had a good start to the new season”.

He went on to say “I’m expecting another tough game, Gareth Jones is back in charge and he will have them well organised. It’s pleasing to have Ryan and Macca added to the squad which will give more competition for places”.

Steve Goodwin misses out again with injury as does Steve Morgan, back in come Tom James, Ryan Davies, Rob McNamara and keeper Jordan Baker. Kevin Jones and Tom Jenkins are all unavailable.

Saints Lose 9 Goal Thriller.

August 20th, 2016

The Saints lost 4-5 to Carno FC at Forest Road.

The visitors netted the winner in the 90th minute to seal all 3 points.

Saints goal scorers were Kevin Jones(2), Josh Wisniewski and Brendan Hackett.

Veteran striker Kev Jones opened the scoring in the 1st minute after long range shot deceived Carno keeper Chris Brown who thought it was going wide.

Just 15 minutes later we were 1-3 down after Peter Rees netted a quick fire hat-trick.

Manager Gareth Jenkins changed things around around and we came back into the game, Jones netted his second just before half time to make it 2-3

Ht 2-3

We enjoyed a good spell after the break although Carno always looked dangerous when attacking.

Steve Morgan pulled up with a thigh muscle injury which resulted in Jenkins bringing on striker Josh Wisnieski, anyone who knows Josh will be aware of his prolific goal scoring record in the past but he has been out in Australia for a couple of years and not been playing.

We were awarded a free kick which Rob Snedden hit the wall into the wall, the ball however came back to the midfielder, he whipped in a first time ball from the right which Wisnieski rolled back the years with a looping header over Brown to make it 3-3.

Just two minutes later a Jack Biggs shot hit a Carno defender which luckily fell to the on running Brendan Hackett, Hackett sent Brown the wrong way to put us 4-3 up with around 15 minutes to go.

To Carno’s management credit they went for it and threw on more attackers, however, it was Richie Evans who had been quiet during the game for his quality who scored the equaliser with 10 minutes to go.

With 90 on the clock Rees lobbed Bevan in the Saints goal to win it for the visitors.

The referee played a lot of injury time but we couldn’t find a way past the Carno back 4 or Brown.

Ft 4-5

An excellent game of football played by both sides, we’ve played Carno a lot over the last 12 months and every time wthe two sides have a very close game.

All the best to Carno for the rest of the season, we shall see you soon.

Saints man of the match Matt James.

Massive thanks to Matt Croose for sponsoring the match.

Weekend Preview.

August 19th, 2016

hay-st-marys-3.jpg

The Gaffer had this to say “I’m expecting a tough game against a very well organised Carno side. Carno finished third last season and no doubt they will be challenging for title again this season.

He went on to say  “We started poorly against Radnor Valley midweek and deservedly went behind. We were a lot better after the first 25 mins, got the equaliser and really should have won the game with all the chances we had. Hopefully we can put in a big team effort for 90 mins and get some more points on the board”.

Unfortunately we will be without keeper Jordan Baker(Holiday), Tom James(Cricket), Chris Preece(Work),  Adi Lawford, Steve Goodwin, Ryan Davies and Phil Davies(All injured), Ryan Losito (International Clearance).

On the plus side players player of the season Rob Snedden looks to make his first appearance of the season.

The Saints drew 1-1 tonight under the lights at Forest Road.

We started slow and were punished when Joey Price ran on to a through ball and scored on 18 minutes. Radnor kept pressing us and saw a lot more of the ball in the opening 30 minutes.

We counter attacked and a ball over the top found Steve Morgan who chipped the Radnor keeper making it 1-1 against the run of play.

Ht 1-1

The second half we were more dominant and with the introduction of Brendan Hackett we pegged  Radnor back but they defended very well and we couldn’t break them down.

We did get the ball in the net through a Jack Biggs effort  but it was disallowed for shouting “Leave it”. Stu Davies saw long range effort just skim the post with seconds to go but it wasn’t to be.

Ft 1-1

Derby Day.

August 15th, 2016

 hay-st-marys-3.jpg

Tomorrow night (Tuesday) we host newly promoted Radnor Valley FC in Spar League Division 1 match.

Under the leadership of Steve Pigott, Radnor won the Mid Wales South and were promoted to Spar League Division 2. In their first year they were promoted on the final day of the season with a last minute winner at Borth securing them a place in division 1.

They have played one game of the new season  drawing 2-2 with a depleted squad at Tywyn Bryncrug FC. In Joey Price they have one best strikers around.

The Gaffer had this to say “Radnor Valley are a youthful side that have gained promotion in the last two season’s. They have also added some experienced players to the squad over the summer. I am expecting it to be another tough local derby game”

He went on to say “We had a lot of players missing against Llanidloes on Saturday but the players who stepped in put in everything and we got a decent point away from home. Hopefully we can build on the decent start to the season and get the points”.
