In off the post: Richard Perry’s (Right) effort gave Tenby a shock lead.

TENBY completed the league double over Champions Hakin United with a 2-1 win at the Observatory Field on Saturday (Feb 7).

The visitors were the first team to beat Hakin in over 18 months back in November when they won 3-2 at the Clicketts and goals from Daryl Mansbridge and Richard Perry on Saturday ensured they completed a memorable league double.

With the game poised at 1-1 it could have been anybody’s game but Tenby were dealt a blow with ten minutes to go as Joe Leahy was forced off with a hamstring injury with the visitors having used their only two available substitutes.

The 10 men did not give up and with seven minutes to go they were rewarded with the winning goal.

Hakin started brightly and could have been two goals up inside the first ten minutes.

Firstly Nicky Woodrow passed to the edge of the box for Ashley Bevan but his curling effort was well saved by Tenby keeper Dafydd Jones.

Woodrow and Justin Harding then exchanged a number of passes in the area but they took too long and Tenby were able to knock the ball away for a corner.

After twenty minutes, Ashley Andrews sent the ball forward for Tenby but Daryl Mansbridge’s effort was blocked away for a corner.

Hakin dominated for large periods in the first half and with ten minutes to go until the break Michael Cooper played in Matthew Broome but his shot was well saved by the Tenby keeper.

The score was still 0-0 at half time but Hakin continued to press when they came out for the second half.

They thought they should have had a penalty two minutes in when James Stanmore went down in the box but the referee waved away the protests.

With ten minutes of the second half gone Tenby stunned the champions as they took the lead against the run of play.

Joe Leahy crossed to Richard Perry who turned and shot down into the ground and the ball bounced into the net off the left hand post.

Hakin looked to gain an immediate reply but with an hour gone they were annoyed when the referee disallowed a goal from Gareth Fawcett saying he had seen a foul on the Tenby keeper.

The Vikings continued to push forward and with twenty minutes to go they were awarded a penalty when Sonny Phillips brought down Matthew Broome in the box.

Nicky Woodrow stepped up to score the penalty and set up a tense final twenty minutes.

Joe Leahy was sent through for the visitors soon after but his shot was well saved by Hakin keeper James Manson.

A hamstring injury then forced Leahy off, but, with his side having already used their only two subs, they would have to finish the remainder of the game with ten men.

With seven minutes to go Tenby had a free-kick 35 yards out. Jack Christopher struck the ball straight at James Manson but the Hakin keeper fumbled the ball and Daryl Mansbridge was quickest to react to tap the ball into the net.

Hakin streamed forward in the closing stages and tempers threatened to boil over but Tenby held on for an excellent win.

Defeat for Hakin is just their third of the season and they are now eight points clear of second placed Merlins Bridge.

Tenby will look to build on the win next Saturday as they take on Narberth in the third round of the Senior Cup.

Hakin will look for an immediate return to winning ways as they take on St Clears.

Hakin United: James Manson, Nathan Banner, Jonathan Bennett, Nicky Woodrow, Gareth Fawcett, Matthew Broome, Justin Harding, Michael Cooper, Ashley Bevan, Steven Mathias, James Stanmore. Subs: Nigel Armstrong, Paul Thompson, Dan Evans

Tenby: Dafydd Jones, Ashley Andrews, Sonny Phillips, Curtis Hurlow, Jack Christopher, Callum Proctor, Jerome Mansbridge, Richard Perry, Dave Rees, Joe Leahy, Daryl Mansbridge. Subs: Owen Coombs, Scott Ferney

CRESSELLY are through to the final of the Alec Colley Cup after beating Hook on Wednesday night (July 21) at Narberth Cricket Club.

Chris Phillips took a hat trick for Cresselly as they restricted Hook to 133-8 in their innings before going to pass their target for the loss of only one wicket.

Hook won the toss and batted first on another warm evening and openers Jamie Phelps and George James shared 37 runs for the first wicket.

Phelps scored 18 but he was then caught and bowled as Phillips picked up the first of his four wickets.

James hit five fours and six in his score of 33 but Phillips had him caught by Scott Arthur.

Phillips then removed Brennan Martin with the next ball before bowling Oscar Willington to claim his hat trick.

It left Hook reeling on 64-4 but scores of 32 from Liam Miller and 21 from Will Goronwy rescued Hook.

Matthew Lewis claimed the wicket of Miller and he later bowled Andrew Thomas to finish with figures of 2-29.

There was also two wickets for Corey Lewis but it was Phillips’ figures of 4-33 that stood out.

Scott Arthur and Neil Williams got Cresselly’s reply off to a great start as they shared 50 runs for the first wicket.

Williams was bowled by Oscar Willington on a score of 6 but that was the only wicket to fall.

Arthur and Chris Phillips shared 84 runs to take Cresselly into the Alec Colley Cup final.

Phillips added to his earlier wickets with a score of 25 not out that included four fours.

Arthur was the star of the innings however, as he hit 12 fours to finish not out on 73.

They will now play the winners of the tie between Neyland and Saundersfoot who play tonight at Carew Cricket Club.
