The two sides played each other in a league fixture on Saturday which Villa won 5-2 but Hundleton were keen to avenge that loss.

Villa won the cup in the 2012/13 season and looked on course to repeat the feat when they took the lead mid-way through the first half but Hundleton hit back before half time and a goal five minutes into the second half gave them the win.

Hundleton made a bright start and could have gone ahead after three minutes but when the ball fell to Dylan Daniel on the edge of the box he shot wide.

A long throw in then gave the Villa a chance but Joey George’s effort was easily saved.

The Villa were playing some neat football and it was that which led to the breakthrough with twenty-three minutes gone. Richard Hilling played a neat one-two before laying the ball off for Joe John but after his shot was saved, Daniel Wilks pounced on the loose ball to knock it into the bottom corner.

The lead only lasted six minutes as the ball fell to Scott Brunton who curled a beautiful shot into the bottom right corner of the net.

Joe John saw a shot go wide for the Villa late in the half but it was still 1-1 when the whistle went.

Hundleton started the second half well and were unlucky not to go ahead when William Abrahams headed wide from a free kick.

However, just three minutes later they were ahead when Ben Pannell headed home Scott Brunton’s free kick.

Prendergast pushed forward looking for an equaliser but had to be weary of the Hundleton counter attack and with twenty minutes to go it was almost 3-1 but Scott Brunton shot wide under pressure from the recovering Villa defenders.

Jason Donohoe then tested the Villa keeper with a well-struck shot but Peter Blain was able to make a good save, pushing it away from danger.

The Villa poured forward in the final minutes and almost got a leveller with three minutes to go.

A long kick from the keeper evaded everyone and it looked as if the Hundleton keeper would gather the ball but he spilled allowing Jake Davies to take the ball but after he rounded the keeper he could only watch as his shot was cleared off the line by a desperate lunge from Hundleton’s Jack Richards.

From the resulting corner Damien Ellis headed straight at the keeper and Hundleton held on to win the cup.

The final whistle sparked jubilant scenes among the Hundleton players who were delighted to be going home with the silverware.

Signed Wales shirts gifted to RNLI go up for auction

Published

on

FOLLOWING a winning start to the Six Nations Tournament, the Welsh Rugby Union (WRU) have scored a winning try for the RNLI, gifting six signed rugby shirts to help save lives at sea.

Each rugby shirt has been signed by the full WRU squad and are accompanied by a certificate of authentication – a winning prize for any Welsh rugby fan.

To avoid a ruck for the WRU shirts the charity has placed all six signed shirts on an online auction, ensuring a fair game for all who wish to win the golden prize. The auction will be live until Wednesday, March 31, which allows plenty of time for supporters to bid for the team in red.

Each signed shirt includes Wales Captain, Mumbles RNLI supporter and the most capped international player of all time Alun Wyn Jones; as well as Louis Rees-Zammit, the Man of the Match in the nail-biting Scotland v Wales game.

Nick Evans, RNLI Fundraising and Partnership Lead said: ‘On behalf of the charity I would like to say a big thank you to the Welsh Rugby Union for donating these fantastic prizes to the RNLI. RNLI volunteers are on call 24-7 and are often called away from important events such as family celebrations – or international rugby tournaments – to respond to the pager if someone is in trouble at sea.

‘Like all charities, 2020 was a challenging year for the RNLI when all traditional fundraising had to stop – all our shops were closed, there were no collections and all events had to be cancelled. This is why we at the RNLI are so grateful to all the team at WRU for their ongoing support. The auction is now live and we would like to encourage all Wales rugby supporters to throw the RNLI a lifeline and place their bid for the winning prize.’

Five subs to be allowed for JD Cymru Premier clubs

Published

on

THE FAW’s National Leagues Board has confirmed that JD Cymru Premier clubs will be permitted to make five substitutions in matches, in accordance with the Laws of the Game, until the end of the 2020-21 top-flight season.

FIFA extended the use of the rule, which was first introduced following the COVID-19 outbreak, citing “player welfare” as part of the reason for the temporary amendment to Law 3 of the Laws of the Game.

FIFA stated that “Some competitions which resumed in 2020 may have a shorter-than-usual recovery/preparation period before the start of their next season.”

“For many competitions, the 2020/21 season will involve matches being played in a condensed period due to a delayed start and the inability to end later than usual because of major international tournaments.”

With the JD Cymru Premier set to restart on March 2, the National Leagues Board has approved the use of the rule in the JD Cymru Premier until the end of the current campaign.
