Haverfordwest County 10 – 1 Pontypridd Town

On a day where Lee Trundle would make his home debut at the club, Haverfordwest ran riot over new boys Pontypridd and showed that they are the team to be feared. Pontypridd were coming off the back of their opening day defeat to Goytre and were looking for their first points of the season. Haverfordwest had played another newly promoted club in Llantwit and beaten them on that day.

Pontypridd would find out very quickly that Haverfordwest are of top tier quality and would learn the hard way that any sort of mistake, no matter how small against a team as good as this would be costly every time. On the day they would concede 10 goals, letting in 5 each half. Most of the damage was inflicted by Danny Williams who got a hatrick and the brilliant Lee Trundle who went one better and bagged himself 4. Trundle showed excellent individual skill as well as professionalism as he showed composure in each and every goal.

As bad as the result was,  this was a good lesson for Ponty showing them how sharp they will need to be to stay in division 1. For Haverfordwest, it’s very had to see how they can achieve anything less than 1st place this season. Who can stop them? Who can be as consistent? It’s a difficult challenge to compete with the former WPL side.

Aberdare Town 0 – 13 Swansea Uni

Swansea University had lost a 1 – 0 lead with a 1 man advantage in the last ten minutes of the game against West End on Wednesday after winning 3 – 1 away to Llywdcoed on the opening day. They needed to stamp down a marker to the other teams in division 2 with a win at struggling Aberdare. The home side were close to their worst even before this game as they’d conceded 7 in their opening 2 games.

Swansea Uni had done exactly what they needed to do – Win… convincingly. The standout man was Marley Bishop Wisdom who got a hatrick. Swansea Uni will certainly need him fit if they are to reach full potential. He scored one of his in the first half and 2 in the second. His two second half goals came as only a fraction of the 9 goals Swansea Uni had scored in the last 45 minutes.

It’s damage retention for Aberdare next Wednesday as they travel to Llwydcoed and there are hopes of revenge for Swansea Uni as they host West End. Both of these games are of course reverse fixtures of last Wednesday.
