This annual friendly was played in memory of the late Dan Evans, who was a keen supporter of both clubs, so this game was a fitting testament.

This was the first time that supporters were allowed to attend a match since February 2020.

New Bluebirds

The Bluebirds paraded their new signings, Dylan Rees, named captain, alongside Henry Jones, Kyle Patten, and Mason Jones-Thomas.

Henry Jones made no mistake from the spot to give his side the lead, lively striker Ben Fawcett grabbed a brace, including one from the spot, plus Kieran Lewis added his side’s fourth.

Tighter second half

The second half was a far tighter affair, and the visitors would have been pleased they didn’t leak any further goals.

Haverfordwest County gaffer Wayne Jones must have felt pleased his side got the job done in the first half, also he must have felt happy with his new starters as the season is fast approaching.

Goodwick United manager Wayne O’Sullivan told Pembrokeshire Sport his side took a while to get going, but they did a lot better in the second half.
