hakinSTRIKER Nicky Woodrow scored a stunning hat-trick for Hakin United in the Jubilee Cup on Wednesday night.

Joining the club from Johnston in close season, Woodrow will be a major asset to the champion’s campaign, with a proven goal scoring record. The game was played in front of a disappointing crowd at the Conygaer Bridge Meadow in the traditional curtain-raiser to the football season when the league champions took on the senior cup winners, Tenby United.

But it was not all Hakin, as Tenby United played their part in an entertaining tussle which had six top class goals. Tenby had the better of the opening exchanges, giving the Vikings an early scare after only two minutes when Scott Ferney had a close range effort well saved by keeper James Manson. Leahy had another chance saved by Manson after 15 minutes and Daryl Mansbridge fired the rebound over the top from close range and was relieved to see the linesman flag for offside.

This spurred the Vikings into action and on the 20 minute mark Vikings skipper Ewan Findlay found Woodrow who scored his first with a low drive from just outside the box. Sam Christopher and Justin Harding then both went close for their sides from long range, but ten minutes later Tenby levelled the scores when forward Christopher finished a good midfield move and drilled the ball home into the corner of the net.

But just two minutes later Hakin were back in front as Stanmore’s low cross was met by Justin Harding, who shot crisply past Tenby keeper Carl Woodhouse. Five minutes before half time, Seasiders new close season signing Joe Leahy scored an impressive goal with his left foot from just inside the box to draw the scores level.  After a good ‘talking to’ from Gary Dawes at the interval, the Vikings came out showing a lot more determination and started to dominate play, with Gareth Fawcett in particular spraying the ball around to wide players.

Hakin took the lead again five minutes into the half when Harding cushioned a header into Woodrow?s path, and the scored with a sublime half volley. Harding squandered another chance moments later when he latched onto a pass from Woodrow but blasted over. Then on the 65th minute mark Woodrow completed his hat-trick with a well taken effort which sailed into the top corner of the net. The former Haverfordwest County striker should have had a fourth when Woodhouse blocked his close range effort. The Seasiders rallied with some late pressure, but Hakin closed out the final moments to secure the trophy for the first time since the beginning of the 2011/2012 campaign.
