Published

on

PRENDERGAST Villa will face St Clears in the final of this season’s Division 2 Cup after the pair won their respective semi-finals.

On Thursday, April 5, St Clears beat St Ishmaels 3-1 in the first semi-final which was played at the Bridge Meadow Stadium in Haverfordwest.

Kieran Rendall had put Tish ahead after twelve minutes before Jon Seeley came close for St Clears as he hit the post from a free kick.

Soon after though Sean Seymour-Davies brought his side level as he headed in at the far post to make it 1-1.

He scored again in the second half to put the Saints ahead and as Tish pushed for an equaliser, Seymour-Davies scored his third to complete his hat trick and book his side’s place in the final.

That will be against Prendergast Villa after they beat Hakin United’s second team on Tuesday (Apr 10) in the second semi-final, also played at the Bridge Meadow.

Villa took the lead with a spectacular effort from Curtis Elliot as he fired in a shot which flew in off the post.

In the second half, Ashton Plunkett gave the Villa one foot in the final as another excellent strike put them 2-0 up.

Hakin’s Gareth Fawcett pulled a goal back late on for the Vikings but they were unable to find an equaliser as Villa held on for an excellent win.

The final will also be played at the Bridge Meadow with a date and time yet to be announced.

Greene’s double sinks Swifts

Published

on

MERLINS Bridge booked their place in the last 16 of the West Wales Cup on Saturday (Dec 8) as they beat Monkton Swifts 3-0 at the Racecourse.

A good crowd gathered to watch the game that was played in blustery conditions which caused problems for both teams throughout the match.

Neither side was able to gain an upper hand in the first half but it was the Wizards who eventually took the lead shortly before half time.

A slip allowed Joe Leahy in and went one-on-one with the Swifts keeper before finding the back of the net.

The windy conditions continued in the second half and Will Haworth came close to doubling the home side’s lead but his shot was saved.

They then made it 2-0 as Haworth crossed from the left for Nathan Greene at the back post who headed low and into the net.

Peter Thomas then played a good one-two with Greene but Thomas sent his shot over the bar.

Greene could have had a second soon after but, after the Swifts keeper had come off his line, he could only send his effort over the bar.

He wasn’t to be denied his second however as a through ball set him up and he fired low into the bottom left corner of the goal to make it 3-0.

On Saturday (Dec 15), Merlins Bridge return to league action with a game against bottom side Milford United at Marble Hall.

Monkton Swifts will look to bounce back as they travel to Herbrandston.
