Pembrokeshire football previews and predicitions for Saturday, Oct 13th:
Senior Cup Round 1 (2pm):
Johnston 2-3 Carew
When this tie was creatively scheduled, we envisaged a flattering gentle win for Carew.
But while we still consider they’ll prevail, it’s going to be tough for them during Glebelands.
Johnston now demeanour stronger than they have finished for some time. Ryan Doyle and Scott Crawford are scoring goals and a likes of Luke Hayward, Steve Allen, Sion Price and Joe John have all returned to supplement knowledge and quality.
And they will be adult for this. They have a 100% record in Divsion 2 so distant and won in a West Wales Cup final week, nonetheless a win over Carew would unequivocally get people holding note.
However, I design The Rooks to be going all out here too.
Alex Bayley’s final pant idea gave them a pull opposite Goodwick final week and they sojourn in a early Division 1 pretension design – nonetheless we still consider a crater competitions paint their best possibility of silverware.
They valid their certification on that front final deteriorate by reaching dual almost finals so a formidable divided tie is zero new for Rob Scourfield and his players.
And while it won’t be easy on what could be a complicated Glebelands representation given a forecast, my camber is The Rooks will come by a wily test.
Llangwm H’west CC 1-5 Herbrandston
Herbie took a possibility to get a critical win on a house opposite Swansea Bay in a West Wales Cup on Saturday, and they should build some-more movement with another one here.
Llangwm are struggling in Division 2 with only one indicate from 6 games, and while on a one palm this is a shot to zero for them, we brave contend a Senior Cup run is distant from their categorical priority this season.
Both Scott Reid and Marc Gelona reveled in a space on Saturday to measure twice each, and Sean Thomas’ group should have too many going brazen for a hosts.
Round 2 (2pm):
Lamphey 1-3 Hakin United
Three weeks ago, we would have likely a many bigger win for Hakin.
But when they met on Sep 29th, it took a late Justin Harding chastisement for The Vikings to flog Lamphey during The Obs, and The Stags were a lot softened that day than their stream joining position suggests.
Billy Goodrick will wish that arrangement has helped his group spin a corner, nonetheless Hakin will arrive on a behind of a 5-2 win during Llandeilo on Saturday, with immature midfielder Camron Thomas grabbing a shawl pretence to underline his potential.
The Vikings should go by here, nonetheless if Lamphey can furnish a same joining as when they final faced a champions, they won’t make it easy.
Monkton Swifts 3-2 Goodwick United
I’ve pondered prolonged and tough here, and am still not assured I’m correct.
But given being beaten by Carew on a opening night of a season, Monkton have been in prevalent form. James Russell has continued his form of final deteriorate and Dylan Davies has valid a good signing, nonetheless they are only dual of many players in form.
Saturday though, will be a many organized counterclaim they’ve played opposite and protected to contend they won’t be racking adult double figures.
To state a obvious, they will also have to organise a in-form Jordan Griffiths, nonetheless The Swifts were one of a few sides to flog Goodwick final deteriorate and Wayne O’Sullivan will know this represents a genuine exam for his squad.
Of course, The Phoenix Boys are a good crater side, nonetheless I’ll hang my neck out here and go for a home win. Just.
Pendine 2-3 Solva
Both teams had unsatisfactory divided days in a West Wales Cup on Saturday, and nonetheless both reached this theatre of a Senior Cup with an dissapoint win in Round 1.
New midfielder Leo Dinmore shone as Solva flog Neyland 4-2, and Connor Bowen and Callum Siddell both scored twice for Pendine in their thespian 5-4 win over Prendergast Villa.
And while a priority for both sides last Saturday was substantially a train outing home, they will see this as a large possibility to strech a Senior Cup entertain final.
For that reason alone, this should be committed and tough fought, nonetheless I’d design Solva to get by it opposite a side a multiplication next them.
Pennar Robins 4-1 Lawrenny
After a good start, Pennar have left off a boil with defeats in their final 3 joining games, and a warn home detriment to Milford United in a West Wales Cup on Saturday.
This however, is a possibility for Chris Lloyd’s group to get behind to winning ways, with Lawrenny carrying mislaid 5 of their 7 Division 2 games so far.
Throw in home advantage during Bush Camp, and I’d tip Pennar with room to spare.
Saundersfoot Sports 7-0 Hundleton
Sadly, we consider this will be really one sided.
we contend sadly given it wasn’t too prolonged ago Hundleton were a fast tip moody team, nonetheless they are now carrying a terrible time in Division 2 carrying mislaid all 7 games so far, with a idea disproportion of -35 to boot.
A 9-0 detriment to associate strugglers Broad Haven on Saturday underlined their bad form, while Saundersfoot distortion sixth in Division 1 and look during home there after graduation final season.
They’ll be a tough tie for anyone in a entertain finals, and we entirely design them to be in a shawl come 5pm Saturday.
St Clears 4-2 Camrose
St Clears are another side who will imagination a crater run. They won a Division 2 chronicle final deteriorate and valid during Carew final month they can compare (or beat) anyone on their day.
But Camrose, when during full strength, poise danger. They gave Hakin a genuine diversion in this foe final deteriorate and by a likes of Simon Gilderdale, Matthew Price, and Jordan Raymond, they have players with plenty Pembrokeshire football experience.
But The Saints are now a plain all turn outfit, and if they perform to what their able of, they should equivocate any upset.
Division 1 (2.30pm):
Merlins Bridge 5-2 Narberth
Matthew D’Ivry would have been gay with a win and a purify piece in Kilvey Fords final week, and this is now a possibility for his Bridge side to pierce within a indicate of leaders Goodwick.
They’ll be favourites to do only that carrying forsaken only dual points in their initial 5 games, and Narberth will have to find a approach of interlude Will Haworth, who as scored in each joining compare this deteriorate as good as removing a leader in Kilvey.
Narberth have positively softened given a lapse of Tony Evans, with 5 goals in dual games, and there was a scoring entrance for 16-year-old Leo Morris in their crater better during Clarbie on Saturday.
But a visitors will need a really good all turn arrangement to come divided with something from The Racecourse.
Neyland 1-3 Clarbeston Road
Clarbie are commencement to get it together after a churned start, and a signing of Sean Seymour-Davies is profitable dividends.
He strike a shawl pretence in that win opposite Narberth and a lapse of Dan Rees also strengthens a defensive options for Matthew Ellis.
Neyland meanwhile, were given a West Wales Cup walkover by Caerbryn, nonetheless in law they would have benfitted some-more from personification and winning.
Andrew Kemp’s side are struggling to get going with only one win over Milford to their name so far, and need a good outcome to flog start their season.
But Clarbie’s firepower and a form of Seymour-Davies creates them favourites for me.
