Home of the Saints

Home Win.

April 29th, 2018

New away kit for next season kindly sponsored by Creation (Alan McGee).

The Saints put in yet another poor first half performance which us trail 0-1 at the break. After a few stern words from ‘The Gaffer’ we came out and won the game in the second half.

The visitors started brighter and looked the more likely to score early but didn’t carve out any good goal scoring opportunities, they did however, have a couple of long range efforts go over the bar.

In the 33rd minute against the run of play we were awarded a penalty, young striker Matty Tong saw his poor spot kick wide after rushing it. From the resulting goal kick, the ball found the Penybont right winger who sent a cross into our box which defender Harry Gilbert unfortunately sliced into his own net. (0-1)

Ht 0-1

We started the second half with an extra forward and like the previous game it paid dividends as we equalised within a couple of minutes.Defender Richard Meredith picked out Callum Maddy at the box post, the midfielder sending a powerful header past the stranded visitors keeper. (1-1)

One minute later Tong was in on goal but before he could shoot he was taken out and another penalty was awarded. Midfielder Jack Biggs put the ball down and made no mistake with his effort. (2-1)

We were now well on top and in the 59th minute speedster Darren Horrigan cut in from the left and fired across the keeper to add number three. (3-1)

Penybont were awarded a free kick 35 yards which was hit through a crowd of players and it sneaked in at the back post with fifteen to go. (3-2)

The last fifteen didn’t see any more real clear cut chances until injury time when a Penybont player hit the post before the ball was cleared to safety.

Ft 3-2

Man of the match Jack Biggs.

 

 

 

Weekend Fixture.

April 27th, 2018

The Saints host Penybont United FC tomorrow in a Spar Mid Wales League 2 fixture.

“The Polecats” should be full of confidence after a 3-0 home win last weekend over Presteigne FC. When the two sides met earlier in the season we came away with a narrow 3-4 win. Tomorrows visitors have some talented youngsters in their squad.

Manager Gareth Jenkins will be without defender Adam Finn who will be missed after having a great season to date and would probably get my player of the year vote. Adie Lawford returns after 3 months of travelling.

Saints v Penybont Utd Kick off 2.30pm

Refreshments available before, during and after the game.

Saints Through to Final.

April 27th, 2018

The Saints are through to the final of ‘The Hay Senior Cup’ after a 7-1 victory over local rivals Talgarth Town FC.

The visitors were missing a few regulars and to their credit put in an excellent first half performance which saw them go in at the break 0-1 up after their best player on the night Rob Evans headed a bullet of an header into the back of the net from a corner in the 21st minute.

We piled on the pressure but never really troubled player manager Mark Walsh in the visitors goal except for one excellent save he made rushing off his line in the 17th minute.

Ht 0-1

Within two minutes of the restart after a change of formation we leveled through Will Goodwin who fired a shot past Walsh at the back post. 1-1

Captain Chris Preece bundled the ball over the line in the 50th minute to put us into the lead after a goalmouth scramble. There were big shouts for handball in the build up to the goal which several of our supporters agreed with. 2-1

After this the floodgates opened and we added five more goals through, Jack Biggs, Matty Tong, Callum Maddy, Adi Lawford and defender Adam Finn.

Saints Win Cup Tie.

April 20th, 2018

The Saints are through to the semi final of ‘The  Hay Senior Cup’ after a 4-1 win over Ewyas Harold FC.

‘Harold’ went ahead early in the game with a good strike from 16 yards out giving keeper Jordan Bailey no chance.

Within minutes we were level, winger Tom Landon cut in from the right, beat two men before shooting from 20 yards, his shot took a deflection wrong footing ‘Harold’s’ keeper. (1-1)

Striker Matty Tong made it 2-1 in the 28th minute, Harry Gilbert won a header which found the striker who calmly slotted the ball past the advancing keeper. 2-1

Ht 2-1

Winger Darren Horrigan who was a thorn in the visitors side all night won a header at the back post which captain Chris Preece then out jumped the keeper and his looping header dropped into the back of the net 3-1.

The visiting keeper made a brilliant save from a Callum Maddy pile driver but was hapless to stop Maddy’s volley late in the game which saw us through to the semi final.

Ft Saints 4 Ewyas Harold 1.

A good performance, I felt we looked the better team for most of the game except for a 15 minute spell when the visitors scored. Our defence was excellent all night, I don’t remember our keeper having to make too many saves considering they had three quick lads up top who we all know very well.

The reserves are in league action tonight at Presteigne FC in a league fixture which will also double up as a cup game(Alfred Sparey). Due to the awful winter we are having the two clubs agreed that this would suit both teams.

The first team head to Brecon where they will come up against an in form Northcote side who are level on points with us but have a better goal difference and a game in hand. The newcomers are having an excellent first season in the spar league and with such a young side they will only get better.
