The Saints Reserves drew 3-3 tonight with their Presteigne counterparts.

After going 0-2 down after 6 minutes with  goals from Presteigne’s Spencer Morgan and Matt Strangwood it looked like it could be a landslide.

We slowly got a foot hold in the game and on the stroke of half time a free kick was awarded after a trip on Matty Tong. Darren Horrigan’s effort hit the post and rolled across the goal line where Tom Weaver reacted quickest and tapped it in.

Ht 1-2

The second half saw us get on top and in the 70th minute Kyle Harding’s free kick beat Mark Ammonds making it 2-2.

Two minutes later Horrigan scored the goal of the game with a 25 yard rocket giving Ammonds no chance.

Presteigne then piled on the pressure and we had to defend well to keep them out. On the counter attack Tong went around his marker and the keeper to score but somehow the linesman flagged for offside to everyone in the grounds surprise.

With just minutes left player manager Joe Emmett who had a good game tripped a visiting player and referee Paul Kirkham had no choice but to point to the spot. Mark Weiland made it 3-3 with a well taken spot kick.

Ft 3-3

Over the 90 minutes this was probably a fair result , at 0-2 I feared the worst, then at 3-2 up  I felt disappointed we conceded late, that’s football for you!

Team –

Tom Bevan, Jamed Eckley, Chris Preece(c), Richard Meredith(Stu Snedden), Andrew Gilbert, Joe Emmet, Jamie Howard, Tom Weaver, Darren Horrigan, Matty Tong, Kyle Harding.

Saints Win at Home.

September 17th, 2016

‘The Saints’ beat Llanrhaeadr FC 2-0 today with goals from Ryan Davies and Rob Snedden(Penalty) to claim all three points in a tough fought match.

We started brightly and went ahead in the 5th minute, Rob Snedden who was playing as a striker flicked the ball on to Ryan Davies. Davies ran through and shot but the visitors keeper saved, however, Davies pounced on the loose ball and scored from 10 yards out. 1-0.

We seemed a lot more compact in midfield this week closing ‘Llan’ down quicker stopping them getting quick ball to their strikers.

Snedden volleyed over the bar from a Brendan Hackett cross, Jack Biggs also went close with a header from the right.

Up the other end Jordan Baker watched a coupe of long range efforts go wide of his goal.

Ht 1-0.

Into the second half and we were awarded a corner on 62 minutes which ‘Llan’ broke quick from, we were caught flat footed and their number 9 was through one on one with Baker but the keeper made a great save to keep us 1-0 up.

Owen Lloyd nearly opened his account for ‘The Saints’ when he reacted quickest after the ball dropped in the area but again the keeper did well saving the defenders volley. Matt Croose also headed over from a Hackett corner as the clock ticked down.

‘Llan’ hit the bar in a mad 2 minute spell but the linesmans flag was up for offside anyway.

Ryan Losito and Adi Lawford had come on for us to add more pace,just five minutes after coming on ‘Los’ outpaced the left back and was pulled back in the area. The referee pointed to the spot, Snedden scored the penalty in the 90th minute to seal the points.

Ft 2-0

Team –

Jordan Baker, Tom James, Matt Croose, Jake Atkinson, Owen Lloyd, Stu Davies, Jack Biggs(Harry Ratcliffe), Brendan Hackett(c), Ryan Davies(Adi Lawford), Rob Snedden, Steve Morgan(Ryan Losito).
