Saints Player of the Month.

October 1st, 2017

Centre half Adam Finn has been voted Saints first team player of the month for September by his team mates. Finn who has been out for around two seasons after a horrific injury playing against Borth FC where he dislocated his knee cap.

Well done Ad, thoroughly deserved.

Saints 3 Talgarth Town FC 1.

October 1st, 2017

Jenks and Burkey.

The Saints took the lead after two minutes when veteran striker Kevin Jones saw his looping header beat Martin Norwood in the Talgarth goal.

More Saints pressure followed and it was soon 2-0, youngster Darren Horrigan picked the ball 22 yards out and hit a curling left foot effort in the top corner of the net giving Norwood no chance.

In the 20th minute Chris Preece was penalised for handball, the Saints skipper was not happy with the decision and was booked for his protests. Striker Kyle O’Shea scored from the spot to bring his team back into the game.

The Saints carried on putting the visitors on the back foot and in the 34th minute a quickly taken Will Goodwin throw in found striker Matty Tong who turned on the edge of the area and shot first time from 20 yards out, the ball nestled into the bottom left corner of the net. 3-1

Ht 3-1

The second half continued with The Saints seeing more of the ball but not really causing Talgarth a lot of problems in front of goal, up the other end Tom Bevan deputising for the injured Steve Jones had a quiet evening.

There was a scare late on after a couple of Saints changes, Talgarth’s best player Ben Sharmen whipped in a cross from the left which Bevan tipped onto the bar, the ball falling to O’Shea who had all the time in the world but he headed over with the goal at his mercy.

Down the other end, Jones and Tong saw shots saved by Norwood, the game fizzled out with the score still at 3-1.

Ft 3-1

 

A game we looked comfortable in throughout in front of a good crowd, our sponsor gave man of the match to Kevin Jones who did play well but I thought our two centre backs Chris Preece and Adam Finn were outstanding all night.

The penalty decision was a strange one, I didn’t see it, half the ground said it was and half said it wasn’t, who would want to be a referee!

Many thanks to match sponsor Gareth Ratcliffe.

Team –

Tom Bevan, Will Goodwin, Chris Preece, Adam Finn, Richard Meredith, Callum Maddy, Jamie Howard, Wilf Ratcliffe, Darren Horrigan, Matty Tong and Kevin Jones. Subs Tom Pavey, Harry Ratcliffe and Harry Gilbert.

Cup Defeat

September 19th, 2017

The Saints bowed out of the Radnorshire Cup in the first round after a depleted team lost 1-3 to an impressive Brecon Northcote FC.

A dominant opening 45 minutes saw the visitors go in at the break 0-2 up and in all honesty it could of been more. The first goal came after a mistake, Northcote broke and scored. Joel Evans headed the second direct from a corner.

The impressive Rhodri Boosey made it 0-3 after 50 minutes as the visitors continued where they left off in the first half.

We pulled a goal back on 68 minutes after a Tom Langdon shot was turned into his own net by a Northcote defender. We were the better side the last 20 but in all honesty the visitors had made several substitutions including replacing Boosey and Keddle who had played very well.

Jenks had this to say ”We are struggling with injuries and suspensions at the moment which is not ideal but this game will give other players the chance to come into the squad and fight for a first team place”. He went on to say ”We had a tough game against Northcote two weeks ago coming out with a 3-1 win and we expect it to be as tough tonight. Hopefully we can put in a big team performance and progress to the next round”.

Bad Day at The Office.

September 17th, 2017

The first team lost 3-0 at Llansantffraid Village FC yesterday in a league fixture. To make matters worse they ended the game with 9 men after two quick red cards in the second half.

I didn’t watch the game but the day started bad with players dropping out, I was also told by one of the management team it was by far our worst performance.

I will try and find out a few more details and post them on here.
