Saints Win Derby.

February 17th, 2018

The Saints beat local rivals Talgarth Town FC 0-5 this afternoon at the ‘King George Playing Field’

Goal scorers were Jack Biggs (2), Tom Landon, Matty Tong and Callum Maddy.

We had the perfect start, after taking kick off we knocked the ball around with confidence, the ball was eventually crossed into the box to midfielder Jack Biggs who headed past Talgarth keeper Martin Norwood after 30 seconds without a home player touching the ball. 0-1

On 20 minutes we doubled our lead, Darren Horrigan found striker Tom Landon who ran through and fired his shot past the diving Norwood. 0-2

Our central three midfielders were dominant during the first half, constantly putting us on the front foot, however, we went in at the break with just the two goal lead when in all honesty is should of been more.

Ht 0-2

On the hour mark we added our third when the impressive Jack Biggs put striker Matty Tong in on goal, the youngster finishing well past Norwood. 0-3

Biggs put Tong in again but as he was fouled on the line in what looked a stonewall penalty the ball fell to the hard working Callum Maddy who made no mistake from close range. 0-4

A though ball to Tong from Jamie Howard saw the striker tripped in the area by Norwood, this time the referee blew straight away and a penalty was awarded. Tong sent the keeper the wrong way but he missed the target in doing so.

Late in the game Jack Biggs who had been the best player on the pitch had the last say when he netted his second from close range and our fifth. 0-5

Ft 0-5

We had a great start which set up the tone for the rest of the game, we dominated for pretty much the whole match. I thought Gethin Davies battled really well for Talgarth throughout. We were a bit sloppy on times otherwise I don’t think the management have too much to complain about, it wasn’t easy to play on that pitch after the weather we have had recently. Jamie Howard did well considering he’s been out for so long, our back three were excellent and were never really troubled.

Results.

February 4th, 2018

The first team saw their winning run come to end yesterday after losing 2-4 at home to Abermule FC.

On another day we could of won comfortable, the visiting keeper made several impressive saves to keep us out and we were our own worst enemies on times being caught out on the counter.

Match report from Stu Townsend.

The Saints made a strong start to this afternoon’s proceedings as young striker Matty Tong forced the Abermule goalkeeper into a full-length save in the fifth minute before the visiting custodian made a save from Darren Horrigan effort after he had come in off the left touchline.

Will Goodwin, playing in a more advanced role today, saw a close range shot on goal blocked in the 16th minute, just when it seemed the net would be bulging from a goal, and Jack Biggs’ header did not quite have the right direction following a cross to the far post 10 minutes later.

Despite being fortunate not to be behind at this stage, Abermule went ahead in the 18th minute when a cross from the left touchline flew over Jordan Bailey in the Hay St Mary’s goal and found the far corner of the net.

The hosts were back on level terms four minutes later after Tong latched on to a through ball and went wide of the Abermule goalkeeper before turning the ball home from a tight angle.

An Abermule player saw a shot on the turn from 20 yards saved by Bailey in the 43rd minute before Horrigan drove goalwards in the Saints’ next attack but struck his effort from 25 years at the goalkeeper. Goodwin saw a close range shot turned behind by the Abermule custodian in the 62nd minute, following a low pull back from Tong, and Biggs header was saved from the subsequent corner.

The Montgomeryshire outfit took the lead five minutes later when Bailey made a reaction save from a close range shot but was unable to keep out the follow-up effort.

Just a minute later captain Chris Preece headed in the equaliser from a free kick. (2-2)

Preece headed narrowly wide from a free-kick played into the Abermule penalty area just a minute later before Biggs was not able to keep a header on target from a Hay St Mary’s corner nine minutes later. Abermule went down the other end of the pitch, in their next attack, and scored from a corner after Bailey had turned a low shot behind. Biggs headed narrowly wide from another corner in the 84th minute, as the Saints pressed for an equaliser, but the visitors doubled their lead in stoppage time when experienced substitute Nick Mumby ran through and fired a low shot past Bailey.

Sponsors man of the match was Darren Horrigan.

Our Reserves went down 5-0 away at St Harmon FC. With seven 16 year olds starting and the bare eleven it was always going to be a hard task.

A young Saints side made up mainly of 16 year olds played host to new boys Felindre FC.

After a few days of rain the only pitch playable was the old council one.

The visitors opened the scoring in the 11th minute after a mistake at the back.

Five minutes later Matty Tong  equalised with a well struck shot from 16 yards out after he outpaced the visitors defence.

Felindre were back ahead in the 22nd minute after stand in keeper Harry Ratcliffe spilled the ball, however, it did look like he was fouled in the process.

Tong made it 2-2 from the penalty spot after he was taken out whilst in on goal.

The rest of the half was an even affair but no more goals were scored.

Ht 2-2

The second saw our young side get on top with youngster Noah Cripps doing well in the middle of the park alongside veteran Jamie Howard who played his first 45 minutes after a 3 month lay off.

Tong was taken out again in the area which was a blatant penalty but the referee said he couldn’t see it through a crowd of players.

We had a good chance to win it in the last minute when the ball fell to Tong but he blasted his effort over the bar.

Ft 2-2.
