First Team Win.

November 18th, 2017

The First Team beat Newbridge 3-1 last night under the light at Forest Road.

Goal scorers were Jack Biggs(2) and Josh Wisniewski.

Saints goal keeper Jordan Bailey saved a Aaron Powell penalty in the last minute. Powell scored the visitors goal in the first half in the 21st minute to bring the scores level at 1-1 after Jack Biggs had headed the Saints in front in the 14th minute.

The game was end to end for the rest of half but on the stroke of half time Josh Wisniewski was the quickest to react after the Newbridge keeper spilled the ball again and he fired us into a 2-1 lead.

Ht 2-1

We upped the tempo in the second half and looked the stronger side, we had big shouts for a penalty when Tom Landon was brought down in the box but the ref waved played on. Adi Lawford and Landon had other chances to extend our lead but couldn’t find the back of the net.

Up the other end Bailey made a great save from the impressive Lyndon Jones.

With 5 minutes to go Matty Tong squared the ball to Biggs who netted from close range to extend our lead to 3-1.

It wasn’t over just yet as the referee awarded Newbridge a penalty after Captain Chris Preece was adjudged to have tripped a visiting player in the area. Goal keeper Jordan Bailey dived to his left to deny Powell his second of the match.

Ft 3-1

Thank you to match sponsor Harry Ratcliffe.

I’m not sure who the match sponsor chose as man of the match(I will find out), for me it was the impressive Jack Biggs who looked a threat on goal every time he went forward.

Saints Win Away.

November 12th, 2017

The First Team won 3-4 at Penybont United FC.

Goal scorers were Matty Tong, Jamie Howard, Tom Landon(pen) and Jack Biggs.

I spoke with ‘The Gaffer’ and he had this to say about the game –

We started slowly again and found ourselves a goal down, striker Matty Tong then equalised with a half volley after beating his marker on the edge of the area.

Top scorer Tom Landon then put us 1-2 up from the penalty spot after Darren Horrigan was bundled over in the area. We then bizarrely had 3 goals disallowed,all flagged offside by the home lineman Tong x 2 and Callum Maddy the other. To rub salt into our wounds they scored next. 2-2.

Veteran Jamie Howard put us back in front with a very well struck volley just before half time.

Ht 2-3

The second half was the Jack Biggs show, firstly he scored an own goal to bring the scores level at 3-3 and then went on to score what turned out to be the winner. Jamie Howard played a good through ball to Josh Wisniewski who saw his shot saved but Biggs was on hand to score from close range from the rebound.

Ft 3-4

A good win on a very difficult surface, we felt a couple of the goals which were flagged offside should of stood but luckily it didn’t matter in the end as we managed to claim all 3 points and are now unbeaten in the last 3 games after a poor run.

Man of the match Darren Horrigan

Team –

Jordan Bailey, Steve Jones(Richard Meredith), Chris Preece, Adam Finn, Darren Horrigan, Adi Lawford, Jack Biggs, Callum Maddy, Jamie Howard, Matty Tong and Tom Landon(Josh Wisniewski).

October 28th, 2017

The Saints led twice in a game they dominated but visitors Dolgellau dug deep and came away with a point after a 2-2 draw.

Goal scorers were Jack Biggs and Adi Lawford.

Many thanks to match sponsor David Cope.

All Square at ‘Monty’.

October 21st, 2017

The Saints drew 2-2 at Montgomery Town FC today in blustery conditions.

After going 2-0 down early in the game top scorer Tom Landon pulled a goal back with a good strike from 20 yards after Matty Tong’s initial shot was blocked on the line.

Ht 2-1

We dominated long periods of the second half although Monty were always dangerous on the counter with the long ball tactics.

The equaliser came in the 74th minute, good build up saw the ball with Darren Horrigan who passed to Tong on the edge of the area, the youngster hitting a good shot past Monty’s stand in keeper.

New signing and man of the match Jack Biggs nearly won it for ‘The Saints’ with a curling effort from 35 yards going inches past the post in the 88th minute.
