The Saints retained ‘The Hay Senior Cup’ after a 3-2 extra time win over Shobdon FC.

Shobdon took the lead through a well worked goal which Harry Bowen headed in at the back post 0-1.

The rest of the half was end to end with both sides having chances.

The second half saw The Saints get on top but Shobdon defended well. It was the visitors who went back in the lead after a shot from the winger saw keeper Tom Bevan get a hand to it but the ball found the back of the net. (1-2)

With just three minutes to go midfielder Jack Evans scored the equaliser from 10 yards out after a lot of pressure in the last few minutes.

Ft 2-2

The winner came in the first half of extra time, Harry Hooper pressed high up the pitch and won the ball off the full back, he burst into the box and shot which the keeper got a had to only for Matty Tong to slide in at the back post and score.

‘The Dons’ tried to get back in the game but if anything it was ‘The Saints’ who looked more likely to score another.

Ft 3-2

Match sponsor Andrew Harris chose Jack Evans as his man of the match. Jack was excellent the last 20 minutes and in extra time. A special mention to 18 year Liam McNally who filled in at centre back and had a top class game throughout.

Runners up Presteigne Reserves

Winners Welli Colts

Borth Beat The Saints

May 5th, 2019

The Saints went down 4-1 away at Borth FC in their final league game. To make matters worse Jack Biggs and Callum Maddy left the field injured and Matty Tong was involved in a nasty clash of heads with a Borth player( speedy recovery Bryn)

After Jack Biggs had given us an early 0–1 lead the hosts came back into the game to take a 3-1 lead, mainly due to errors from us.

The second half saw us dominate possession due to the wind but we couldn’t force a goal, Tong put the ball in the net in twice but was flagged for offside, the second was definitely on but hey who would be a club linesman. The hosts always looked dangerous on the break and wrapped things up in the last minute to make the final score 4–1
