PORT TAL­BOT TOWN B 1 FC PORTH­CAWL ........... 2

TWO goals from Dan Burt led to FC Porth­cawl Sec­onds bank­ing all three points against Porth­cawl Town B at Lock’s Lane in this vi­brant derby clash, writes Tony Poole.

Fol­low­ing a de­lay caused by a clash of colours in kits, the mean Green Ma­chine from Rest Bay soon made up for lost time with colour­ful Ryan Black hit­ting the wood­work.

An­drew Bow­den also tested the strength of the cross bar be­fore the vis­i­tors took the lead in the ap­proach to half time.

Bow­den played the ball into the path of Burt, who put on a spurt be­fore drilling a low shot into the cor­ner of the net.

In­juries led to the Green Ma­chine hav­ing to shuf­fle re­sources and two min­utes into the sec­ond pe­riod, the Seasiders were awarded a penalty.

From the spot, Cal­lum Endi­cott got the meas- ure of goal­keeper Con­nor Jones only for the new kids on the Porth­cawl block to re­take the lead.

They cre­ated a few chances be­fore Burt once more struck – and they went on to con­trol the re­main­der of a well-con­tested derby.

And close to time prime-pot­ter Steve Davies had a great chance to snooker the Seasiders, but his close range shot was off cue.

“Well done to FC Porth­cawl on the win in a tight derby con­test,” said Porth­cawl Town sec­re­tary Mar­tyn Mor­gan.

“Though we were dis­ap­pointed in fail­ing to pick up a point, credit must go to both clubs for play­ing a derby clash in the true spirit of the game.”
