Weekend Fixtures

December 6th, 2018

The Saints will host second placed Waterloo Rovers FC this Saturday in a league fixture. Rovers have been going very well of late winning five of their last six games. When we won their 1-2 recently I felt we were very lucky to come away with all three points, they are a big side and are full of confidence due to their current form.

The reserves face Builth Wells FC reserves away, when the two sides met recently there were goals galore at Forest Road.

The Saints Ladies head to Hereford on Sunday where they will play Belmont Wanderers Ladies FC.

Saints v Waterloo Rover FC Kick off 2.30pm

Saints Exit League Cup

December 2nd, 2018

The Saints are out of the league cup after a 4-2 defeat at Llanidloes Town FC.

After a going 1-0 down in the 5th minute to a headed goal we equalised when Adi Lawford got on the end of a mix up between Adam Worton and Kris Williams(keeper), Lawford rolled the ball into an empty net 1-1.

Although we were on the back foot we were in the game and looked to counter attack at every opportunity.

The game turned in Llanidloes favour when they scored in the 40th and 42nd minute, Connor Bird netting the third goal.

Ht 3–1

The second half saw our Captain Adam Finn having to leave the field of play with a head injury which he sustained in the first half after a clash of heads with Dewi Allen.

Goal keeper Tom Bevan made two great saves to keeps the hosts out however, he had no chance from a Peter Rees’ lob after a mistake in midfield let the nippy striker in.

Full back Will Goodwin sent over an inch perfect cross to Jack Biggs who headed in past a stranded Williams to make it 4-2.

The last ten minutes saw us play our best football of the game but to their credit the hosts had done more than enough to go through to the next round.

Ft 4-2

Man of the match Tom James.

The Reserves drew 2-2 at Forest Road against Llandrindod Wells FC Reserves. Top scorer Chris Assirati and Rhod Jones with our goals.

The First Team Go Top

November 25th, 2018

The Saints First Team proudly sit on top of the league at the half way point of the year after today’s 4-3 win over Dyffryn Banw FC.

After going 0-1 down to a Banw goal against the run of play, we hit back with three goals before half time. Striker Matty Tong slotted home after good run down the left hand side by Brendan Hackett. Jack Evans then netted a quick fire double to see us lead 3-1 at the break.

Banw came out with all guns blazing at the start of the second half and ten minutes in they found themselves level at 3-3.

The winning goal came with around ten minutes to go. Right back Tom James who was finding plenty of space down the flanks whipped in a ball onto the head of top scorer Jack Biggs who made no mistake. 4-3

The last ten minutes were a bit nervy but Banw didn’t have any clear cut chances.

Ft 4-3

The Reserves went down 6-3 at Presteigne, goal scorers were Noah Cripps, Rhodri Jones and Julian Assirati.
