Results

September 8th, 2019

The Saints first team fell to a heavy defeat at Carno FC 7-1.

Anyone watching would not have predicted that result after an hour in which we had dominated possession of the ball and chances. We should of been 0-2 up in the opening five minutes, two close range chances were put over the crossbar. Carno were awarded a free kick on a rare attack and while we were sorting our wall out they took a quick free kick which saw them roll the ball into an empty net.

That lead was doubled five minutes later when the same player Andy Evans put jumped our keeper and headed the hosts into a 0-2 lead.

On 41 minutes Greg Preece put strike partner Matty Tong in down the left, Tong ran into the area and fired a shot into the top right corner. 1-2.

Ht 1-2

We started bright in the second half and had a couple of decent chances but Chris Brown saved well.

The turning point of the game was on the hour mark, Richie Evans scored a 25 yard free kick giving keeper Tom Bevan no chance. 1-3

After that we were chasing the game and with the bare 11 and players playing out of position we tired and Carno took advantage scoring 4 more goals, Andy Evans their chief tormentor.

First Team Out Of Welsh Cup

August 31st, 2019

The first team are out of ‘The Welsh Cup’ after a 3–1 loss at Montgomery Town FC.

It was frustrating afternoon for ‘The Saints’ who had large amounts of possession throughout the game against a physical ‘Monty’ which saw a few unsavoury incidents off the ball.

The talented Tom Evans was once again the difference between the two sides, after hardly touching the ball in the opening 15 minutes by the 17th he scored two good goals one after a mistake at the back.

We settled after the setback and piled on the pressure, Greg Preece and Kieran Patel seeing efforts saved. Matty Tong got the ball in the net but was penalised for a foul on their centre back.

Ht 2-0

The second half followed a similar pattern, Callum Maddy impressing at CDM. The hosts kicked a couple off the line and their keeper made a last ditch save off Jack Biggs. Biggs finally found the net from the penalty spot after a outfield Monty player was penalised for saving a shot with his hand on the line.

As we continued to press the hosts caught us on the counter which resulted in a 25 yard screamer flying past the diving Tom Bevan.

Ft 3-1

The new manager changed the formation and it definitely improved us, we just needed a bit of luck today and we could of got a result. Two lads played with injuries today due to players still missing. One of them Adi Lawford playing out position was awarded our man of the match.

Team –

Tom Bevan, Adi Lawford, Adam Finn(c), Frazer McAnally, Liam McAnally, Callum Maddy, Jack Biggs, Jack Evans, Matty Tong, Kieran Patel (Jordan Ingram), Greg Preece

New First Team Manager

August 30th, 2019

The club are delighted to have appointed Colin Preece as the new First Team Manager. Colin is a UEFA B licence coach, having spoke with him at training tonight we both agreed the squad is short on numbers. He has spoke with a player today and it looks like we will be announcing a new signing soon, the player has played at a good standard and has worked with the manager in the past. We have players unavailable due to cricket, injury, holidays, it’s been a tough couple of weeks but we hoping to get players back in the next couple of weeks to steady the ship.

 

Reserves Kick Their Season Off

August 28th, 2019

The Saints Reserves kicked their off season last night with a hard earned point after a 1-1 draw at Builth Wells Reserves.

Darren Horrigan opened the scoring with a good goal and it looked like it was enough to win all three points but a last minute equaliser from the hosts saw the points shared.

‘JENKO’ STANDS DOWN

August 27th, 2019

The club have received a resignation letter from long term manager Gareth ‘Jenko’ Jenkins stating that with his new job doing shifts and his children growing up and he just doesn’t have the time anymore to combine everything.

At the helm he gained two promotions, which resulted in a 4th and 7th place finish in step 3. He won the Radnorshire Cup and numerous others and reached the league cup final just losing out to a very strong Penrhyncoch FC side.

Jenks has gained many friends throughout Welsh football clubs and that is shown in all the good luck messages on Twitter.

The club are looking to replace him as soon as possible, in the mean time Colin Preece who has been working alongside him the last 12 months will be in charge.
