CWFA CUP RESULT

November 10th, 2018

The Saints progressed in ‘The CWFA CUP’ after a 1-5 victory against Presteigne St Andrews FC. The match was played in awful conditions, the pitch which was good at the start deteriated by half time.

The game was much closer than the score line suggests.

Two goals for Greg Preece

After the hosts headed in a goal from a corner in the first minute we responded with goals from Jack Evans and Greg Preece to go in 1-2 up at the break.

Further goals late in the second half by Preece, Jack Biggs and an own goal saw the game finish 1-5.

Weekend Fixtures

November 8th, 2018

The first team are away tomorrow(Friday) night in ‘The Central Wales Cup’ where they face Presteigne St Andrews FC.

The management team will look to use their large first team squad for this rearranged game. Winger Jordan Ingram returns after injury, Jack Cook returns to the squad after a run out with the reserves, midfielder Jack Evans also returns after injury, however, we are very disappointed that a new signing who we had hoped to play won’t be in the team due to international clearance even though its well over 30 days. There seems to be a mix up with the players registration at the FAW.

On the Saturday our reserves head to Penybont United FC for a league fixture. This looks a tough game due to the home side being on a good run at present.

Friday

Presteigne St Andrew FC v Saints Kick off 7.30pm

Saints Out of League Cup

November 4th, 2018

The Saints are out of ‘The E.R. Jenkins League Cup after losing 4-2 in a penalty shoot out. The game finished 3-3 after extra time.

Abermule took a third minute lead through Jack Weaver which was cancelled out in the 16th minute when Callum Maddy headed in from a Brendan Hackett corner.

Youngster Weaver regained the lead for the visitors which saw them go in 1-2 up at the break.

Ht 1-2

The second period saw us get on top and on the hour Jack Biggs headed in another Brendan Hackett corner to bring us back level at 2-2.

Although both teams looked for a winner in the 90 minutes neither could add to their tally so the game went into extra time.

Ft 2-2

We went ahead for the first time in the match in the opening period of extra time, a great assist by Hackett resulted in Biggs heading in our third which put us 3-2 ahead.

Substitute Nick Mumby brought back parity to the game when he added ‘Mulers’ third making the score 3-3 which is how it ended after 120 minutes of play.

As we all know penalties are a lottery but to the visitors credit they tucked theirs away while we didn’t, Abermule winning 4-2 after pens.

Good luck to Abermule in the next round.

The reserves side which was depleted due to unavailability lost heavily against Llanidloes Reserves 12-1. Kyle Harding with our goal.

Veteran Paul ‘Squit’ Williams netted a brace of own goals just missing out on his hat-trick I’ve been informed!

Club News

October 29th, 2018

Well done to Tom Bevan on winning first team player of the month.

The club would like to wish Tom Landon all the best for the future at new club Civil Service FC. Tom was a Saint for a couple of seasons and what you got from Tom was 90 minutes of running from start to finish and travelling large distances for the cause. 

First Team Win Away.

October 28th, 2018

The Saints first team put in another good performance on the road and came away with a 1-6 win at Dolgellau FC.

First half goals from Jack Biggs, Matty Tong(2) and Brendan Hackett saw us race into 0-4 lead. Further goals in the second half from Tom James and Adi Lawford saw us extend our lead,  the home side scored in the last minute.

We were a bit sloppy in the opening five minutes but once we got going we went ahead very quickly. Greg Preece was released down the right hand side, he outpaced the full back before crossing into the box which resulted in Jack Biggs scoring from close range. (0-1).

Just two minutes later in the 10th minute the lead was doubled, Matty Tong saw his original effort at goal saved but he pounced on the rebound and scored from a tight angle. (0-2).

In the 22nd minute we went 0-3 up, Tong went around the left back before scoring from another tight angle. (0-3).

We felt we should of a head a couple of penalties but referee Gwilym Lewis waved them away.

In the 38th minute Tong was tripped quite central around 22 yards out. A free kick was awarded which midfielder Brendan Hackett curled around the wall into the bottom right corner to put us into a 0-4 lead.

On the stroke of half time youngster Liam Mcanally who was having another good game was brought down in the area this time Lewis pointed to the spot. Unfortunately Biggs’ effort came back off the cross bar to safety.

Ht 0-4

Dolgellau changed their formation at the start of the second half which starved us of the first half possession we had. We still looked the more likely side to score in the second half, however, Tom Bevan made a brilliant double save in the 70th minute. Youngster Jack Cook made his first team debut coming as a replacement and showed some good touches in the engine room.

Full back Tom James scored next finishing off a good team move and replacement Adi Lawford added the final goal with a good finish after being put through on goal.

We had to play the last 12 minutes with ten man after Jordan Ingram limped off after a bad challenge.

Dolgellau scored a consolation goal in the last minute.

Ft 1-6

A good performance from everyone made a difficult place to go look easy.

Team –

Tom Bevan, Tom James, Frazer Mcanally, Adam Finn(c), Will Goodwin, Liam Mcanally(Jack Cook), Jack Biggs, Brendan Hackett, Callum Maddy, Matty Tong(Jordan Ingram), Greg Preece(Adi Lawford)
