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

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.
