Kilgetty go through in Senior Cup



KILGETTY booked their place in the quarter finals of the Senior Cup with a 3-0 win over St Ishmaels on Saturday (Nov 13).

Persistent rain had made the pitch very wet but referee Paul Rooney was happy that the game could go ahead.

It didn’t suit either team but Tish were the better team in the first half as they played some nice football considering the conditions.

However, they didn’t really trouble the back 4 of John Mansbridge, Sammy Lewis, Owain Coombs and Jake Proctor who were solid all game.

The first goal came after 20 minutes as a corner from Henry Lawrence to the back post eluded everybody bar Richard Tebbutt who nodded in to make it 1-0.

Tebbutt, and the handful Lloyd Hughes had a few half chances to double the lead but the Tish keeper, who was impressive all game, made some great saves.

The pitch by this point was awful for both teams and both teams were happy to go into the break.

In the second half Kilgetty upped their game with chances going begging but finally the impressive Lloyd Hughes grabbed the second in the 60th minute.

That killed the game off and the Kilgetty keeper had little to do for the remainder of the game but he was alert to tip one shot over the bar.

The home side made four subs with 16 year old Oscar Miles, Rhys Hewson, Ross Hurst and Tom Mansbridge all coming on and playing their part.

Kilgetty continued to create chances but in the 75th minute, Callum Proctor ran from his own box to latch on to a Lloyd Hughes pass to make it 3-0.

Shortly after though they were down to 10 men as Jake Proctor was forced off with a hamstring injury.

He had been one-on-one with the keeper and was about to take his shot and it meant they had to play the final fifteen minutes a man short.

The Tish keeper made some more good saves as he kept Kilgetty at bay.

Kilgetty manager Robbie Beynon said after the game: “Tish are a young team building for the future which is great to see. If they play like they did first half they will have a great chance of staying up. I wish them well for the rest of the season.

“As for us it wasn’t our best performance by a long way but we ground out the result in conditions that didn’t suit us at all. The club are in a good place at the moment with squad depth a massive plus and our aim is to try and get out of Division 2. These Cup competitions are a bonus but we have been excellent so far and may that continue.”


Goodwick bow out of West Wales Cup



GOODWICK United bowed out of the West Wales Cup as they were beaten 1-0 by South Gower on Saturday (Dec 4).

The West Wales Premier League side travelled to Pembrokeshire on the back of four straight wins, including their 21-0 demolition of Hendy in the second round of the competition.

This time though they came up against a Goodwick United who were yet to taste defeat this season.

The only goal of the game came sixteen minutes in as Ieuan Priede headed South Gower ahead.

Goodwick had a number of chances throughout the game but were unable to find an equaliser.

Nathan Greene and Johnny Horgan were both brought on to try and change the outcome but their opponents held on to book their place in the next round.

On Saturday, December 11, Goodwick return to Division 1 action with a trip to St Ishmaels.

Carew go through in extra time



CAREW needed extra time to beat Tumble to book their place in the next round of the West Wales Cup on Saturday (Dec 4).

Shaun Whitfield had put Carew ahead at the end of first half stoppage time but just four minutes into the second half, Trystan Leech pulled Tumble level.

Jordan Richards then scored Carew’s second to put them back ahead and Whitfield’s second goal looked to have sealed the visitors’ passage into the last sixteen.

However, Leech grabbed his second five minutes from time to give the home side hope of forcing the game into extra time.

And Leech completed his hat trick in the 92nd minute to make it 3-3 and to ensure the teams would be playing another 30 minutes.

In the first period of extra time it was Carew who got the goal to put them back in the lead with Harvey Langston scoring.

Tumble were unable to find a way back this time and Joe Williams’ goal two minutes from the end secured the win for the Rooks.

Narberth seconds earn bonus point win over Aber



NARBERTH seconds (also known as Narberth Athletic) travelled to Aberystwyth as they looked to leapfrog Newcastle Emlyn at the top of the West Wales Conference League.

There was a gale blowing straight down the pitch from the clubhouse, which made attractive rugby difficult in such cold weather conditions.

Narberth lost the toss and played with the wind. They put the home side under pressure for most of the first period using the elements to their advantage and scored two good tries through scrum half Jordan James and livewire flanker Dylan Walsh and, converted by Shane Rossiter but was a 12 point advantage enough going into the second half?

Narberth coach James Merriman sent on two heavyweight replacements at half time in Daf Walters and Jac Norcross to help carry the ball against the elements.

The tactics worked superbly with Walters rumbling over for two tries and centre Ryan Scourfield rounding off a tremendous second half performance for the young Otters going over under the posts to put the score beyond doubt and an excellent bonus point win.

After the game and changing out of their playing strip, the boys then put on their Santa outfits for the Christmas social and long drive home.
