Double: Aaron McQuillan’s two goals set Neyland on their way to victory

NEYLAND are through to the Semi Finals of the Senior Cup as they thrashed Haverfordwest Cricket Club by seven goals to one on Saturday afternoon.

The Nomads dominated their Division Two opponents for large periods of the game but had to come from behind as the Cricket Club took the lead against the run of play.

Jamie Cato put the visitors ahead on thirteen minutes, raising hopes of a shock result.

However, two goals in a minute turned the game on its head and Neyland didn’t look back.

They scored a further four goals in the second half and will now face Narberth in the Semi-final which takes place in Monkton next weekend (April 25).

Neyland started well as Aaron McQuillan shot wide before a shot from Nathan Warlow bounced awkwardly for the Hwest keeper and he had to tip the ball over the bar.

Haverfordwest Cricket Club then stunned their opponents as they took the lead. Liam Sheehan broke into the box and left the ball for Jamie Cato whose shot went in off the post.

They almost had a second five minutes later as a corner from Matthew Deans bounced back off the bar.

With half an hour gone Neyland equalised as Gary Power played the ball through for Henry Durrant who rolled the ball into the net.

From the restart Neyland pressed and forced Haverfordwest back and Wayne Parry went in for a challenge with the keeper which saw the ball bounce into the path of Aaron McQuillan who knocked the ball into the empty net.

Shortly before half time Wayne Parry played the ball through for Aaron McQuillan and he slotted the ball into the net to make it 3-1.

Six minutes into the second half Neyland scored a fourth when Sean Hannon bundled the ball home from a corner.

Haverfordwest threatened briefly soon after but Liam Sheehan’s lob went wide of the post.

With twenty two minutes of the game to go the Nomads added a fifth in spectacular fashion when Michael Chandler’s shot from 25 yards out flew into the top corner.

The Nomads continued to dominate and hit a sixth with four minutes to go when Wayne Parry lobbed the ball over the Haverfordwest keeper into the net.

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.
