Offside: Rob Morgans thought he had scored but his effort was ruled out

GOODWICK UNITED made it through to the final of the Senior Cup for a second year in a row after they beat Milford United 2-0 on Tuesday night.

They will take on the winners of the other Semi Final between Johnston and Hakin which was played on Thursday night.

A good crowd gathered to watch the game which was played at the Conygar Bridge Meadow Stadium in Haverfordwest.

Both teams showed plenty of spirit with the referee having to blow the whistle on a number of occasions throughout the match.

It was Goodwick who started the stronger and they came close to taking the lead after ten minutes when Johnny Horgan’s shot came back off the post and into the keepers’ arms.

Milford came close to opening the scoring when a ball into the box was not dealt with by the Goodwick defence but keeper James Gwilt gathered the ball at the second attempt before Milford’s players could get to it.

Chris Thompson was proving a threat down the right hand side for Milford and after a good run he was brought down, giving them a free kick in a dangerous position but it came to nothing.

Tom Llewellin then battled well to win the ball back but his fizzing cross was cleared.

Shortly before the half hour mark Goodwick made the breakthrough when Rob Morgans played the ball through for Johnny Horgan who slotted the ball under the on-rushing Milford keeper and into the net.

Rhys Dalling then came close to doubling Goodwick’s lead when he picked up the ball on the half way line before running to the edge of the box but his fierce effort was pushed wide by Milford keeper Andrew Fairburn.

With five minutes to go until half time Dalling did get his name on the score sheet when he went one on one with the keeper before placing the ball into the bottom left corner of the net. The start of the second half was a scrappy affair with Milford guilty of a number of fouls.

Ten minutes in to the half Goodwick nearly added a third when a cross was dropped by Fairburn and the ball fell to Dalling but his effort was blocked by two Milford defenders.

Substitute Taku Padiwa then had Milford’s best chance of the game but his effort from the edge of the box was tipped over by James Gwilt.

Padiwa and fellow sub Liam Parr combined well down the right but there was no one on the end of the cross.

In the closing stages Goodwick were agonisingly close to a third goal when Rhys Dalling’s stunning shot from the edge of the box cannoned back off the cross bar.

They thought they had scored their third goal in stoppage time when Dalling played the ball to Rob Morgans who slotted the ball into the net but the linesman had flagged Morgans offside and the goal did not stand.

It stayed 2-0 and Goodwick who will now look forward to the final which is scheduled for Saturday, April 9.

Signed Wales shirts gifted to RNLI go up for auction



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



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.
