BARRY TOWN UTD ....... 4 PENY­BONT .................... 1

TWO goals in each half last Sun­day con­demned Peny­bont to back-to-back South­ern Sec­tion de­feats, writes Tony Poole.

Though Bont opened up with a 2-0 home win over Risca United, they then suf­fered a 7-0 thump­ing against league new­com­ers Swansea City at Llan­darcy Park.

They moved on to Jen­ner Park last Sun­day, and two first-half goals from re­turn­ing se­nior team star Bradley Cotterill sent the Dragons clear.

De­spite Jerry Silva pulling a goal back, two more Barry goals en­abled them to col­lect three com­fort­able points.

In the Celtic Tyres Brid­gend & Dis­trict League Di­vi­sion One, hon­ours fin­ished even on 1-1 be­tween Peny­bont Thirds and Llangeinor Sec­onds on the grass pitch at the Kymco Sta­dium.

It was Llan who opened the scor­ing dur­ing the first half through Corey Son­nekus while Ryan Wil­liams im­pacted from the Bont bench.

Within a few min­utes of ditch­ing a bench-warm­ing role, Wil­liams sent Cai Robert­son through and a spec­u­la­tive shot earned Bont a point.

In the Ivy Court Cot­tages Welsh Youth League, Peny­bont went down to a 3-2 de­feat against Caerau Ely at the Kymco Sta­dium.

Luke Bridge­man shot the vis­i­tors in front and though Bont lev­elled with a sub­lime ef­fort from danc­ing Danny Woolfenden, Caerau Ely led 2-1 at the break via a Tommy Roberts strike.

Woolfenden again waltzed through on goal to level only for a late goal from Roberts to give the Cardiff side the points.

Fi­nally, in the Welsh Women’s League, Peny­bont were held to a 1-1 home draw by Aberys­t­wyth Town.

Bethan Davies curled in a 26th-minute free kick to give the Bont girls the lead – and it re­mained that way un­til the 80th minute.

How­ever, Aber saw how the land lied, and Ste­fanie Land plot­ted their equaliser. in 2003 in Pe­narth when the score was 0-40.

Wales have had some nar­row de­feats, like when they lost on con­ver­sions in both 2011 and 2013, but this is the first time they’ve recorded a win against the Su­per League players of the fu­ture.

Satur­day’s re­sult is an even more out­stand­ing one when you con­sider the clubs that the players come from. Four­teen of the 17 Eng­land players were af­fil­i­ated with Su­per League clubs and the other three at RFL re­gional academy sides. In turn, Wales had 10 players from South Wales based com­mu­nity clubs – four from Aber Val­ley Wolves, four from West Wales Raiders and two from Rhondda Out­laws. lers last Satur­day night dur­ing Last Night of the Proms at the Al­bert Hall, and it led to them fail­ing to make sweet mu­sic against the on-fire Llan Siro boys.

De­spite rous­ing dis­plays from young players like Dean Taylor and Chris Davies, Garw crashed to a heavy de­feat.

But the vic­tory de­lighted Llan sec­ond-team coach Jamie Wot­ton, who saw his young guns fire some telling shots.

The Tyzack broth­ers ter­rorised the Blandy boys with 21-year-old Cory PENY­BONT have been given home ad­van­tage over Undy Ath­letic next month in the first-round proper of the JD Welsh Cup, writes Tony Poole.

The draw was made last Mon­day – Barry Town United chief Gavin Ch­ester­field pulled the balls out of the hat at FAW head­quar­ters in Cardiff – and Pen­coed Ath­letic face Pon­ty­clun at Ivor Park while Llantwit Ma­jor host Taffs Well with ties to be net­ting once while Ethan – four years his ju­nior – knocked in a siz­zling hat­trick.

The other Llan marks­men were Nathan Cater and Joshua How­ells on a day when some Garw players ruled the waves at the Proms un­like the re­main­ing con­tin­gent at Blandy.

This Satur­day, Garw Re­serves will look to get back up into the sad­dle at Maesteg Park while Llan Rangers host the third string of Brid­gend su­per club Peny­bont.
