Everybody loves Raymond Goodwick United Milford United

3 1


recorded their sixth straight win on Saturday (Jan 7), as they beat Milford United 3-1. A hat trick from Adam Raymond

gave the first team a very good win against a resolute and well organised Milford United team. Goodwick took the lead in the 38th

minute when, after some neat passing down the right wing, the ball reached Raymond who hammered the ball into the net.

Milford replied in the opening minute of the second half when a

cross from the left was met by Josh Smart, who placed the ball past Casey Walters. The home side regained the lead

when Matty Delaney won the ball and his accurate pass found Raymond, who turned and curled the ball into the far corner of the net. Raymond sealed the points when

his free kick from 25 yards found the net.

The win for Goodwick keeps them

sixth in the table and they also have a number of games in hand on the teams around them. On Saturday (Jan 14), Goodwick

are away to the side directly above them in fifth - Tenby - while Milford are at home to Narberth.

Caerau Ely

Bluebirds come from behind in thriller 5

Haverfordwest County5 HAVERFORDWEST

COUNTY and Caerau Ely played out a thrilling 5-5 draw last Saturday (Jan 7), with the Bluebirds coming from behind to level on four occasions. It was a game which saw almost

a season’s worth of drama packed into its 90 minutes and the Bluebirds managed to score five goals without ever being in the lead. During the first 20 minutes, the

Bluebirds seemed barely to have turned up at all, and by the 19th minute, the home side had taken a 2-0 lead.

A quick break down the left saw

them score in the fifth minute and their second goal 14 minutes later was likewise with the run of play. In the 22nd minute, Ely could

easily have gone three up, only to be thwarted by a superb clearance off the goal-line by Jamie Evans. Slowly, but surely, the Blues

began to battle their way back into the game. The pitch was in a poor condition and they began to realise that the best approach was the direct one.

The result was a quick two goal

burst just before half-time. In the 40th minute, Ashley Bevan hammered home a left-foot shot from 15 yards and a minute later, Steffan Williams volleyed in from just inside the box. Having gone into the second half

with that two-goal burst just behind them, the Blues felt they now had the impetus to stride ahead, only to be knocked by a third Caerau Ely goal in the 68th minute. A brilliant save by James Gwilt

prevented a 4-2 score line and then the Blues bounced back, forcing an equaliser three minutes later when

an Ely defender was crowded into an own-goal after pressure in the six- yard box. Twice more the Cardiff side

scored, only for the Blues to equalise within a minute or two. Caerau went 4-3 up in the 78th minute and Steffan Davies produced a superb individual effort to make it 4-4. Caerau went ahead again, from

a penalty, in the 83rd minute and this time it was Greg Walters who levelled, in the 85th. That goal was followed within

a minute by a red card for a Caerau player and the fraught concluding minutes saw Walters just unable to convert two further chances before the game ended with a goalmouth incident which saw a red card for Caerau’s ex-Bluebird keeper Scott James and a yellow for Steffan Davies.

Student chosen for Welsh squad Fraser commented: “I have the

best of both worlds at college as I have been able to play football with the college’s Sports Academy in between classes.” Fraser’s very first match

Morgan Thomas: Scored the winning goal for the West Dragons on Saturday

West Dragons Neyland

2 1

WEST DRAGONS started the

year with a hard fought win at home to Neyland last Saturday (Jan 7). Neyland took the lead after 15

minutes when Justin Harding fired a low shot past Dragons keeper Peter Blain, beating him at his near post. Neyland were not ahead for long, as Dragons striker Scott Crawford

levelled matters with a low shot into the corner. In the second half, 17-year-old

substitute Morgan Thomas changed the game in the Dragons favour. Almost immediately, the youngster

had a shot cleared off the line and minutes later he hammered a shot into the bottom corner to win the game for the Dragons. On Saturday (Jan 14), the West

Dragons visit Angle and Neyland visit Carew.

Seasiders stroll past Narberth Narberth Tenby

1 7

TENBY proved too strong for

neighbours Narberth on Saturday (Jan 7), as they came away with a 7-1 win. Sam Christopher was again in fine

form for the Seasiders as he scored another hat trick, taking his tally of goals for the season to 28.

Brother Jack was also on the score sheet, while the other goals came from

Jerome Mansbridge, Curtis Hurlow and Josh Grotta. Ben John scored for Narberth but

that was just a consolation for his team, who have now lost 10 of their 15 games so far this season. On Saturday (Jan 14), Narberth

will look to get back to winning ways as they are away to fellow strugglers Milford. Tenby stay fifth as a result and

on Saturday, they face champions Goodwick, who are level on points with the Seasiders, at the Clicketts.
