@Stebonheath Park
Attendance : 198
Programme : £2.

With gale force wind and rain hitting West Wales only this match survived mainly due to the excellent drainage of the Penallt Road pitch.
Llanelli started off by peppering James Kirkwood in the Cwmamman goal and with their thirteenth effort in the 43rd minute he made the goalkeeping error we all knew was coming.
After the break both side started tackling in a most vigorous way which saw nine yellow cards produced. However, the visitors could not peg back and now remain solidly in the relegation spot in Cymru League Championship South.

Cardiff Metropolitan University 1 Penybont 1

Cyncoed Campus: JD Cymru Premier

This evening was my second visit of the campaign to Cyncoed after having watched the Archers entertain Newtown at the beginning of the season in late August. I had also seen the students as a ‘home team’ even earlier in the season, when they met Progres Niederkorn in the UEFA Europa League at the Cardiff International Athletics Stadium, where Cardiff Met were somewhat unfortunate to bow out against their Luxembourg opponents on away goals despite winning the second leg. The students had made a strong start to the JD Premier campaign and had found themselves at the head of the table during September. However, the Archers had suffered a dip in form during October and had failed to record a victory in their previous four league outings. Cardiff Met found themselves just inside the top-half of the league table despite suffering a 1-0 reverse at Newtown that I witnessed last Friday evening. Visiting Penybont were enjoying their first season of top-flight football after finally achieving promotion from the Welsh League First Division last season. The Bridgend-based club found themselves one place off the bottom of the table, having recorded just a single league victory thus far, and came into tonight’s match on the back of a 3-2 home defeat at the hands of Cefn Druids last Sunday. I had watched Penybont in action previously, since the merger of Bridgend Town and Bryntirion Athletic, but had not seen them in action on home turf. My only visit to Bryntirion Park was a couple of years ago to watch Cardiff Met defeat Swansea City in an FAW Women’s Cup final. As is often the case, for Cardiff Met fixtures which are not played on Saturday afternoons, there were a number of local hoppers present at this evening’s match.

The home team came close to opening the scoring in the seventh minute of the match on what was a wet and windy evening in the Welsh capital tonight. An inviting low cross from near the right-hand touchline was deflected goalwards by a Penybont defender before eventually being cleared off the line for a corner by a team mate after it had initially beaten the visiting custodian. The Archers went close again to breaking the deadlock just four minutes later when a fierce drive from a tight angle narrowly whistled over the crossbar to the relief of the Peybont goalkeeper. The hosts saw a mishit shot fly wide of the target in the 22nd minute when a ball played forward towards the Penybont penalty area was laid-off to provide a shooting opportunity for Cardiff Met. The Archers' efforts were rewarded seven minutes later, following a neat passage of play, which saw a shot from the left side of the penalty area parried by the visiting custodian and Will Evans was on had to pounce and tuck away the rebound. The Bridgend-based club nearly equalised just a couple of minutes later when a 25 yard free-kick was parried to safety by the home custodian before being cleared to safety. Cardiff Met went close to doubling their advantage courtesy of a 25 yard free-kick, just a couple of minutes before the interval, but the ball flew wide if the target and the lead remained just a single goal. The hosts pulled a low effort wide of the penalty area 13 minutes following the resumption of play before the Archers slashed wide of the target after a cross came into the penalty area from out on the right. Despite having the elements behind them during the second-half, Penybont struggled to break down their opponents and create any clear-cut goal scoring opportunities, with the students appearing they would end their winless run of results. The visitors volleyed wide from the edge of the penalty area after a 90th minute free-kick was played into the Cardiiff penalty area before the late drama arrived at Cyncoed. Kostya Georgievsky headed home at the far post from a stoppage time corner before peeling away to celebrate the goal and ensuing point with a cartwheel.

Norwich City U23 - 1 Fulham U23 - 2
Premier League 2 Division Two
Lotus Training Centre (pitch three)
Attendance - 80ish
Free admission
Free colour team sheet

Switched to pitch three as first team were still training, but no sign of them, it did mean however no cover to keep out of the rain. It will need checking but I think I now have ticked off pitches 1 to 5 though not pitch 2 since it became 3G/4G.
An exchange of goals (F 6 minutes & NC 13 minutes) early on in an even first half meant it was 1-1 at half time, Fulham had the better of the second half and got their reward after 76 minutes to take the lead and if anything they looked like increasing it rather than NC getting an equaliser.

Watford FC supporter hence the name also follow Hull FC but rarely get to see either these days.

Have now visited over 800 grounds, progress in recent years has been rather slow and will continue to be as things stand.

Lincolnshire Junior Cup, 2nd round
Hykeham Town 4 Epworth Town Colts 1 (att 72 h/c)
£2 admission, no progs

Surprised to see only one familiar face at this game, but a large turnout of locals made up for the lack of groundhoppers. Talking to the referee before the game he told me the switch to the Friday night was an experiment to see if it generated a larger crowd, and seems to have worked.

Decent game, and one that was closer than the final score suggests. Two Hykeham goals in the last five minutes, one a penalty, gave them a flattering winning margin. They were the sharper side through, even if Epworth created more chances over 90 minutes.

Hykeham Town (I think they're unconnected to the previous club of the same name) play on the 3G pitch at the Priory City of Lincoln Academy. The 3G is their regular pitch, so this wasn't a one off to use the floodlights. There's a spectator area that runs most of one side, although dugouts and annoying sections of high fence behind the small-sided goals mean space is at a premium with a large crowd.

Red Shirts/ White Shorts Black Shirts & Shorts

Attendance 12278 (512 Away)

Admission £22 Programme £3

Pie, Peas & Gravy Bovril £6.40

A miserable wet evening in a South Yorkshire. City were coasting to three points after set piece headers from Williams (43’) and Wiemann (71’) but then contrived to let Barnsley back into the game. Halle headed in from a left wing corner in the 76th minute to give the home side hope and then on 90+4 mins Woodrow poked in from close range to salvage a point and deny the visitors three!
