Risca 0

Milford Haven 6

screen-shot-2016-11-16-at-10-36-39MILFORD HAVEN made the long journey to Risca on Saturday (Oct 22) and despite only having the bare 11 to play, Milford’s spirits were high.

Both sides looked dangerous on the attack, but it was the visitors that were first out of the blocks, creating several chances in the first 10 minutes.

Rachel Coe was denied by a good save but made no mistake second time round with a clever reverse stick finish.

The second goal came in quick succession, with a good run by Meg Evans to draw the defence and create space for Charlotte Davies to find Elyse Morgan in the D who finished well.

Risca then started to move the ball about and created some opportunities to try and get back into the game.

Milford defence battled well under the pressure just before the break to keep the home side out with some excellent saves by keeper Yasmin Riggs, playing only her second game in goal.

A counter attack from deep saw the visitors increase their lead with a skillful finish by Coe, who found herself one-on-one with the keeper just before half time.

The second half was much the same as the first, with Milford controlling possession and moving the ball well, looking for an early goal. It didn’t take long for the visitors to be on the board again with a strong attacking run down the flank by Evans and a neat pull back for Morgan (fifth goal in only two games) to find the backboard with a well-timed strike.

The contest was effectively over with the hosts being 4-0 down but the home side came back fighting in periods during the second half.

A solid defensive performance by Vicki John, Kate Farr, Jane Jordan and keeper Riggs ensured the visitors kept a clean sheet. Steph Layton and Jess Barrett linked well down the left flank with the former forcing a mistake by the Risca defence to win a short corner.

The ball was played to Emma Summons at the top of the D who slipped the ball to Coe to complete her hat trick.

The final goal was the goal of the game, a loose ball was picked up in the visitors half and some superb interplay saw the ball moved from left to right after a series of passes found Coe in the D to finish off an impressive attack.

It was a good confidence booster for the squad on the back of a defeat, managing to keep a clean sheet and finishing some well-worked goals is always a positive. It was pleasing to see a good team performance and the effort and commitment was excellent.

Squad: Emma Summons, Yasmin Riggs, Vicki John, Kate Farr, Jane Jordan, Meg Evans, Charlotte Davies, Rachel Coe, Elyse Morgan, Steph Layton, Jess Barrett.

The team would like to thank their match sponsors – John & Delyth Summons.

Milford’s next game takes place on Saturday (Oct 29) against Gwernyfed at home – 2pm pushback.

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.
