Wicked 4 Garth Vader 3

Coychurch Recreation Ground: Bridgend and District Sunday League First Division

Last season saw the first taste of action, probably for most hoppers, in the Bridgend and District Sundy League after the scheduled Carmarthenshire League fixture had to be postponed to due one of the protagonist's involvement in a rescheduled West Wales Intermediate Cup tie and hastily replaced by a trip to Garth Vader. Wicked are based in Bridgend and Coychurch Recreation Ground is an open playing fields containing one unrailed pitch, bounded from the neighbours by trees, and a building the changing facilities, toilets and what about to be a clubhouse for Brackla FC judging by a sign on an interior wall. They found themselves mid-table in the First Division following a 1-1 home draw with Ewenny Rangers last Sunday. The force was certainly with Garth Vader this season as they had already secured promotion behind champions The Seagull and defeated Wicked 4-3 in Measteg in their previous outing a fortnight ago. The hosts went ahead courtesy of Jack Picton's 11th minute penalty before Vader equalised 14 minutes layer when the Wicked goalkeeper made a mess of a backpass and was beaten by a shot from the edge of his penalty area by Thomas Evans. The visitors took the lead through a long distance effort from Vincent two minutes after the break before Wicked were level in the 49th minute when the Garth Vader defence failed to handle a ball played into their penalty area and Kyle Griffiths pounced. The hosts' David Davies headed in from a 56th minute corner before the visitors equalised again nine minutes later courtesy of Rich Boydell. The Bridgend outfit claim the points in the 86th minute from a close range finish by Griffiths after the ball was played back into the Vader danger area.


AFC Butetown 1 Tonyrefail BGC 1

Canal Park: Highadmit Projects South Wales Alliance First Division

The weekend culminated with the one fixture that was on the original schedule for the Welsh Spring Groundhop, as AFC Butetown were not able to host a match during the August bank holiday weekend, due to the local carnival taking place at their ground in the summer. Canal Park is a 10 minute walk from Cardiff Central railway station and a small section of the Millennium Stadium, as well as several tower blocks, can be seen from here in the distance. The pitch is fully railed but had no spectator cover and reminds me slightly of Grange Albion's Coronation Park home, in that it is located where industrial land meets a residential area, with a variety of housing types on show in this multi-cultural area of the city. The Cardiff club came into the weekend hovering just above the relegation zone after suffering a 5-1 defeat at Cefn Cribbwr BC in their last match some two weeks ago. Tonyrefail BGC, who successfully hosted a match on last August's hop, were safely ensconced in mid-table but were beaten 4-0 at Garw SBGC on Wednesday evening. This match was a feisty affair at times, no doubt fueled by a vocal home bench and a group of away supporters, complete with a club flag. Tonyrefail BGC broke the deadlock four minutes after the interval courtesy of a shot from Joran Cicigoi just inside the host's penalty area. AFC Butetown were presented with a excellent opportunity to level the scores three minutes later but the subsequent spot-kick was blazed high and not very handsomely over the crossbar by IbrahimcFarrah. The home club were awarded another penalty with 10 minutes of the match remaining and this time Farrah atoned for his earlier profligacy by successfully converting the kick to earn a share of the spoils.

Another Double in the SWFL, this time division 1. Starting with :-

Blackburn United Ladies 1 v 6 Celtic Academy

@ Blackburn United JFC KO 12:30 (F&N) Crowd 64

3G pitch with a stand and fully railed off although you couldn't watch from the side the dugouts were on. Sunny lunchtime football for a change.

Very early season but the league table showed both sides unbeaten Blackburn were 2nd with 7 points from 3 games and Celtic 4th 6loints from 2 games.
Celtic scored witha great 25 yard effortafter only 3 minutesand continued to play good football throughout the first half adding goals on 22, 28, 33 and 45.

Second period they carried on from where they left off adding their 6th on 53 minutes. On a rare foray forward United forced a corner which was turned into her own net by an unfortunate defender. It looked likely that would be the only way Blackburn would score and so it was. The game then slowed and numerous substitutions broke up the play and both teams seemed to settle for going through the motions.

Young female referee had a good game with just a couple of yellow cards, the first when she stopped the game a couple of minutes into the second half and booked a Celtic player. I think the person had been a half time substitution and the bench had forgotten to inform the ref.

Match finished at 14:16 and it was a 35 minute drive to :-

Hibernian 23s 3 v 0 Cumbernauld Colts

@ Portobello High School 3G pitch 2 (F&N) Crowd 34. KO 15:00

This match paired up 5th with 6 points from 2 games against the league leaders with 9 from 4. The pitch had no specific standing area for spectators but some viewed from outside on top of a large grass bank.

Hard to believe this game was in the same division as the first one. poor distribution and woeful finishing lead to a goalless first half.

By 70 minutes I was convinced this was a certain 0-0 but Hibs eventually did manage a goal a few minutes later adding a second on 81 and a third in stoppage time.

Another match in sunshine but as I type this I can hear the rain beating against the window, back to normal tonight!

Primera Andaluza Malaga (Level 6)
Athletic Fuengirola 2-2 Atletico Estacion
Admission 5, no paper, Att: 150(ish)

The ground is very conveniently situated less than 10 minutes walk from rail and bus termini, and has previously been described by pinewoodste. Junior level games took place directly before and after, and the attendance fluctuated wildly as players and parents arrived and left.

The main game was advertised as an 11.30 kick off, we actually started 6 mins late due to an over running kids game, which I caught the last 20-25 minutes of. Not sure what the score was - I saw two goals, bith for the visitors, who were smaller than the home side but much quicker and more skilful.

The main game pitted 5th v 11th, but the two sides were evenly matched and a draw.was the fair result. Estacion built up a two goal lead, with goals on 34 and 58 minutes, Fuengirola replying on 72 and 90 mins with two almost identical ling range lobs of the keeper by number 6. It was harsh on the keeper, who had played well but just lacked a few inches, but a draw was fair on balance of play.

Final action of the game was a sending off - the home side's number 10 receiving a second yellow for high feet. There was just time for the free kick to drift harmlessly wide before the final whistle went.

After a few beers down by the marina the main event of the day was
Primera Liga
Malaga 1-2 Real Madrid


I'd picked up a ticket in the pub on Saturday night, a season ticket holder was going to a birthday party and couldn't attend the game. My second visit here this season, having been out for the Las Palmas game in September.

The preview of the game in the local paper described the fixture as 'decaffeinated'. Malaga, while not mathematically down, are doomed to relegation, while Madrid are focussing on the Champions league. Certainly it wasn't the visitors' strongest side by any means, but it was more than good enough to dispose of Malaga.

Goals from former boqueron, Isco on 29 and Casemiro on 63 put Madrid in charge, Malaga replied with the last kick of the game - Rolan showing determination to fire home at the second attempt on 90+3
