Goodwick ease to win over Neyland

Published

on

GOODWICK United eased to a 6-0 win over Neyland on Saturday (Feb 25) as they maintained their place at the top of the Division 1 table.

The league leaders have not lost a league game since losing to Merlins Bridge in November and they dominated early on against their opponents.

Rhys Jones crossed into the box for Rhys Dalling but he saw his shot blocked.

Another ball into the box caused problems as it bounced awkwardly, into the path of Dan James but his effort was saved by Neyland keeper Patrick Hannon.

With 11 minutes on the clock, the visitors took the lead. Dalling saw a shot blocked but the ball fell to Will Haworth who shot low into the net from the edge of the box.

Ten minutes later it was two as James played the ball into Dalling who lofted a shot back across goal and into the net.

It was 3-0 soon after as James’ corner was flicked on before Scott Delaney poked the ball home.

The visitors continued to look for more goals with Will Haworth setting up James but he shot over.

Ten minutes before the break, Goodwick made it four as a loose back pass allowed James to win the ball and he curled an excellent shot into the bottom right corner of the net.

On the stroke of half time they added a fifth as a ball into the box wasn’t cleared and Dalling fired in his second goal of the game.

In injury time, Neyland won a free kick on half way which keeper Patrick Hannon came out to take. Goodwick cleared the ball up to Dalling as Hannon retreated. Dalling tried to go round but Hannon did well to dive down and prevent another goal.

In the second half, the home side had a couple of forays into the Goodwick half with a few balls over the top but the visitors were able to deal with the pressure.

Neyland then earned a free kick in the 67th minute but Goodwick keeper James Gwilt caught the ball. He then fired the ball upfield for Dan James who fired in to make it 6-0.

Sub Adam Hawkins saw a shot hit the post late on before there was a late chance for Neyland to get on the scoresheet.

A long throw from Mike Chandler fell to Fletcher Picton but his acrobatic effort went over the bar.

That was the last of the action as Goodwick secured their fourteenth win of the season. The win moves them six points clear of second placed Merlins Bridge.

Neyland remain in eighth place but sit seven points above the bottom two.

On Saturday, March 4, Goodwick host Kilgetty while Neyland travel to Clarbeston Road.

Haverfordwest County officials to visit Atlético Osasuna for strategic discussions

Published

on

NEXT week, Haverfordwest County A.F.C. chairman Robb Edwards and COO Beccy Nuttall will travel to Spain to visit Club Atlético Osasuna. During their visit, they will engage in high-level discussions with Osasuna’s upper management, focusing on community and fan engagement strategies.

In April, both Haverfordwest County A.F.C. and Club Atlético Osasuna were appointed to the Executive Board of the Union of European Clubs (UEC), an international organisation established in April 2023. The UEC was founded to provide a voice to the 92% of professional football clubs that often go unheard. The Union aims to democratise decision-making processes in European football, ensuring that each club has a vote and that the destiny of the sport is not determined solely by the wealthiest clubs on the continent.

“We look forward to this meeting with Osasuna and hope our collaboration with other clubs continues to grow,” said Edwards. The upcoming visit underscores the commitment of both clubs to fostering stronger ties and working collaboratively to shape the future of European football.

The discussions will likely cover a range of topics, from enhancing fan experiences to developing community outreach programmes, reflecting the shared values and objectives of both clubs within the UEC framework.
