Footy chance for the vets

Llanelli Star - - RUGBY -

A VET­ER­ANS foot­ball club is up and run­ning in Cardi­gan, and the newly-formed vet­er­ans side put up a cred­itable per­for­mance de­spite go­ing down 4-2 against a vast­ly­ex­pe­ri­enced Merthyr team at Peny­dar­ren Park.

The Cardi vets took the lead against the Val­leys side and ap­peared on course to earn a draw be­fore con­ced­ing two late goals. St Dog­maels man­ager Steve Jerry Wil­liams and new Cardi­gan Town head coach Steve Black­ford were on tar­get for the vis­i­tors.

Fur­ther friendlies at King Ge­orge V Play­ing Field in Cardi­gan against Swansea Univer­sity and a re­turn game against Merthyr are in the pipeline be­fore the start of the Wales Over-45s League.

For­mer play­ers in­ter­ested in res­ur­rect­ing their play­ing ca­reers or any­one pre­pared to pro­vide spon­sor­ship back­ing for the team are asked to con­tact sec­re­tary Richard Bowen (tel 07807 664991).
