Home of the Saints

Saints Win Away.

August 12th, 2017

The Saints won 0-3 away at Dyffryn Banw FC.

The big home side put us under a lot pressure in the opening 20 minutes, Steve Jones made a brilliant save in the 17th minute tipping the ball around the post at full stretch.

In the 21st minute Adam Finn played the ball into Matty Tong who flicked it to veteran Kevin Jones, Jones hit it first time from 40 yards out, the ball dipped over the keeper to give us a 0-1 lead.

 

Keeper Jones was called into action again in the 26th minute but the Banw striker fired straight at him from what looked like an offside position.

The rest of the half was fairly even with no real goal scoring chances for either side.

The manager changed a couple of positions around during the break and this worked well with the impressive Will Goodwin putting us 0-2 up after Jones had put him in on goal.

Banw’ kept pumping long balls into the box but Preece, Finn, Meredith and Bailey dealt with everything thrown at them with Jones behind belting orders out.

Striker Matty Tong rounded the keeper but his effort went into the side netting, Goodwin also went close again but his effort went inches wide.

Banw got the ball in the net from a corner but the referee rightly awarded us a free kick after a foul on keeper Jones who had caught the ball and was knocked flying.

We counter attacked throughout very well and from a Banw corner we attacked with pace down the right, Goodwin cut the ball back to Callum Maddy who still had a bit to do before shooting across the keeper to put us 0-3 up with 12 minutes to go.

Harry Ratcliffe put Tong through at the end but he crossed to Jones when perhaps he would of been better going for goal.

Ft 0-3

A great team performance from the lads from 1 to 11, Banw is a tough place to go and I can see several teams coming unstuck there, they are a big side. Every player put in a good shift but my man of the match goes to Captain Chris Preece who was outstanding throughout.

Team –

Steve Jones, Richard Meredith, Adam Finn, Chris Preece(c), Jordan Bailey, Jamie Howard, Callum Maddy, Harry Ratcliffe, Matty Tong , Kevin Jones No subs used.
