WFL 1 October eyeopeners

Saturday 13th October – The Big One

Haverfordwest County, currently second in the division, gunning for the championship will travel to perhaps their greatest threat… Penybont. The Bont are 1st as of late and 4 points in the clear. They are one of two sides unbeaten in the Welsh League 1. The thing that makes this match most interesting is that the visitors have a game in hand on their opponents, making this match crucial so early on in the season. Penybont have won one more game then the Blues this season but none of them have been a challenge as big as this one.

Saturday 13th October – Early relegation rivals?

As well as their youth is doing, Taffs Well just can’t seem to come anywhere near that. Having got their first win of the season 2 weeks ago, you would have thought that their form would change, but this weekend, a 2 – 0 home loss to Ammanford did not show that. You could compare them to Cardiff City in the Premier League. They aren’t playing badly but they aren’t able to get the result. They come up against bottom of the table Pontypridd Town. The newly promoted side did not adjust well to this league to start with. It didn’t look good from the second game when they suffered the biggest defeat of the season so far in the division against Haverfordwest. That game ended 10 – 1. Quite recently however, they got their first win of the season and their only points after they defeated Goytre United away from home. Just like their opponents for this one, they can’t find consistency.

Saturday 13th October – A home game at last!

Ammanford struggled in early life in the FAW Division 1, getting 1 point from their opening 3 games. But recently their form has turned around. 2 weeks ago they delivered a rampant 4 – 0 victory to their fans away at Goytre and followed that with a 2 – 0 away victory at Taffs Well. This will be their first home game of the season, and their exceptional fans will be most certainly be loud. The ‘Black and White army’ will see their team face Llantwit Major. It will be a scrap between the new boys and what a way to kick off Ammanford’s home games this season. The division 2 Champions – Llantwit – are 1 point below their opponents and will potentially be looking for their 3rd win of the season but they’ll have an uphill battle to win this one both mentally and on the scorecard.

October is pretty much dominated by this day – mark your calendars for it…
