Goodwick beat Hakin in cup and wins for Monkton, Carew, Merlins Bridge and Neyland

Ben Steele netted four goals for The Swifts

There was an important cup tie plus four Manderwood Pembrokeshire Football League games which finally beat the weather on Saturday.

Starting at the Obs where Hakin United narrowly lost 1-2 against Goodwick United in the West Wales Intermediate Cup – this means that the Phoenix Boys have reached the quarter finals where they will host Giants Grave at Phoenix Park.

Matty Delaney gave Goodwick the lead, but The Vikings equalised through Ryan Wilson, but Matty’s elder brother Scott Delaney bagged the vital winner in a cup tie which could have gone either way.

In Division 1, Monkton Swifts returned to the top of the table after they thrashed Clarbeston Road 9-0 at Monkton Lane. Finding the back of the net were Ben Steele (4), Jordan Richards (2), Martyn Carroll, Ryan Griffiths and Dylan Davies.

Third in the table Carew comfortably won 5-0 at home against Fishguard Sports. Scott Ferney and Shaun Whitfield netted a brace apiece and old stager Haydn Shapcott was also on target.

Scott Ferney scored twice for Carew.

Pennar Robins lost 1-5 at home against fourth in the table Merlins Bridge. Sam Southcott scored The Robins’ only goal, whilst The Wizards secured the points with a brace each for Will Haworth and Adam Hawkins and veteran Chris Ormond also struck.

Neyland easily beat fellow strugglers St Clears 4-1. The Nomads’ scorers were Jay Kennedy (2), Jason Griffiths and Ollie Hughes. Will Evans struck a superb goal for The Saints.
