Goodwick United 6

Clarbeston Road 0

SENIOR CUP holders Goodwick United breezed into the third round of the competition as they won 6-0 against Clarbeston Road at Pheonix Park on Saturday.

Both sides started the game well in a traditional cup tie played in blustery conditions but the Division One leaders outclassed their Division Two opponents.

Clarbeston Road had the first chance of the game when after two minutes, Paul Jenkins played the ball forwards for Tom Reubens who sent the ball across the face of goal for Ben John but his effort was brilliantly saved by James Gwilt in the Goodwick goal.

With thirteen minutes gone Goodwick took the lead when Adam Raymond’s cross was not cleared properly and the ball fell to Rhys Dalling who had time to compose himself and curl the ball into the top right corner of the net.

The visitors could have drawn level soon after when Matthew Ellis’ free kick was flicked on by Tom Reubens but the ball fell straight into the arms of James Gwilt.

Goodwick thought they had doubled their lead with 25 minutes played when Rob Morgans knocked the ball into the net but the referee ruled it out saying that Rob Morgans’ was offside.

They did get their second goal soon after as the ball fell to Rob Morgans who blasted the ball into the top corner.

It was 3-0 just two minutes later as Chris O’Sullivan played the ball through for Rhys Dalling who shot with the outside of his left boot into the bottom left corner of the net.

The home side continued to dominate and had a penalty shout turned down but it wasn’t long before they had their fourth goal when a cross from the right from Johnny Horgan seemed to deceive everyone flying into the back of the net.

Clarbeston Road faced an uphill task in the second half but just five minutes in, Goodwick scored their fifth goal.

Johnny Horgan scored his second goal of the game as he drilled the ball low into the bottom right corner of the net.

Rob Morgans had two chances to increase Goodwick’s lead but he shot wide and saw an effort saved by the Clarbeston keeper.

With fifteen minutes to go Adam Raymond almost added another goal but his effort rebounded back off the post and into the arms of the keeper.

Raymond had another shot saved before the home side finally added their sixth goal.

Rhys Dalling played the ball to Rob Morgans who placed the ball into the bottom left corner of the net to seal a comfortable win.

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.
