Pembroke ease past Penygroes in Welsh Cup



PEMBROKE are through to the next round of the Welsh Cup after they beat Penygroes by 10 wickets on Sunday (Jun 6).

Penygroes batted first but were all out for 66 as Charlie Perkins took four wickets for the home side.

Perkins made the breakthrough early on as he had Rhodri Morgans caught by Paul White.

Andy Megrath and Rudi Botes did share 28 runs for the second wicket but the wickets began to tumble.

Perkins bowled Botes and William Welsh before having McGrath caught by Jack Davies to leave the visitors on 29-4.

Lloyd Boddington added 10 before he was caught and bowled by Paul White who then also claimed the wicket of Sion Thomas who had also scored 10.

Jamie Kaijaks, Sam Davies and Will Randell all picked up wickets as they bowled Penygroes out inside 22 overs.

Pembroke took just nine overs to reach their target with openers Luke Butler and Will Davies untroubled by the Penygroes bowlers.

Butler hit five fours in his score of 32 from 20 balls while Davies hit four fours in a score of 27.


Shephard departs Bluebirds



HAVERFORDWEST COUNTY AFC has confirmed that Corey Shephard has left the club due to work commitments.

The midfielder joined the Bluebirds in the summer of 2020 from Cymru South side Cambrian and Clydach Vale, providing him with his first opportunity of top-flight football after impressing in the second tier.

The 23-year-old was an integral part of the midfield as Wayne Jones’ side went on to have an excellent first season back in the Cymru Premier.

Able to provide defensive cover to the back line, he was also given licence to get forward, a role he enjoyed as the Bluebirds played an entertaining brand of football throughout the 2020-21 campaign.

Undoubtedly the stand-out moment for Shephard was his strike in the famous 2-1 win over The New Saints at the Ogi Bridge Meadow in March.

The club has thanked Corey for his efforts during his time with the Bluebirds, and wish him all the best for the future.

County suffer big defeat at the hands of Bala



HAVERFORDWEST County suffered a 6-2 defeat at the hands of Bala Town in the Cymru Premier on Saturday (Sept 11), as former Wales international David Edwards netted a brace on a chastening afternoon at Maes Tegid.

The Bluebirds travelled to Gwynedd hoping for a repeat of last season’s dramatic win against the Lakesiders, when Jack Wilson netted a late winner in a 2-1 success, however they found themselves 2-0 down inside 15 minutes thanks to an Edwards’ header and full-back Callum Woods’ long range effort.

Striker Ben Fawcett headed in at the near post for his fifth goal of the season after 20 minutes to halve the deficit and give the Bluebirds hope.

However, this was short-lived, with Paul Rutherford and Edwards netting before half-time to give Colin Caton’s side a comfortable 4-1 lead at the interval.

Wayne Jones’ side knew that early second-half goals were needed if they were to get back into the match, however they conceded for a fifth time five minutes after the restart when defender Nathan Peate powered a header into the net from a corner.

County did manage to pull a goal back with five minutes remaining when Kieran Lewis showed good composure to direct his header into the bottom left corner after a cross from the left touchline by captain Dylan Rees.

However it was the hosts who had the final say, with substitute Bradley Bauress’ first-time shot from just inside the area found the bottom right corner to round off an impressive afternoon for his side.

The Bluebirds are next in action on Saturday, September 18, when they welcome Flint Town United to the Bridge Meadow in JD Cymru Premier MD6.
