Saturday 2 December 2017


Welsh League Division 2


STM Sports 4 - 2 Caldicot Town


Caldicot lost their second game on the bounce as STM completed a league double over Town. Richard Sharratt returned to the midfield where once again Tony Wallis's team started off brightly on the 3G surface of the Cardiff Sports fields in Llanrumney. 


The hosts came close and could have taken an early lead had it not been for a couple of smart saves from Ben Davidson who replaced the injured Gareth Wesson in the Caldicot goal. Town found their rhythm and forced several set pieces, mainly throw-ins which are as good as crosses when delivered well by Ashley Palmer. One such occasion gave Jacob Guy the opportunity to give Caldicot the lead when he headed powerfully after losing his marker to give Town the lead.


STM came back at Caldicot who were on top at this stage but on 25 minutes the home side equalised after a powerful header from their centre half gave Davidson no chance to make it 1-1. From this point, the home side started to get a strangle hold of the game although the scores remained level at the break.


The second half started off with both teams going full on, but it would be Caldicot who would regain the lead through skipper Matt James. Another delivery into the area saw James win his personal battle to head against the crossbar and back out but James reacted the fastest as he smashed the half volley into the back of the STM net to put Town 2-1 up.


Now back in control, Town looked to kill off the game although it was at this stage that took a turn for the worse for Tony Wallis's boys as like the week before a goal was disallowed for off side which seemed nigh on impossible as when Richard Sharratt scored the disallowed goal, two STM defenders were on the line? Still if Sharratt was adjudged to have been offside then Ok. The free-kick however was taken completely from the wrong place and as Caldicot's players were still celebrating, STM were off and running and attacking the Caldicot goal with a numerical advantage which they capitalised on to equalise. 


The STM players, officials and fans would have been equally unpleased had this been the other way round however the noise levels increased dramatically as they could sense their visitors were somewhat rocked by that goal. More agony was to follow after as an STM drive forward saw an unopposed player smash a well struck shot passed Davidson who's view had been blocked. 


Now I explain it as unopposed as the referee unfortunately collided with Olly Smith in the centre of the field which sent both tumbling down. This is the area where the STM player surged through before scoring his well struck shot, but part of me thinks it may have been different had it not been for the unfortunate collision with the match official. The home bench and fans went wild and an unfortunate incident in which a home fan though it would be good to get in on the action by jumping the barrier to celebrate in front of the Caldicot dugout was maybe uncalled for but the game was exciting I suppose.


Now trailing 3-1, Town were struggling to find that inner belief that they could rescue a point as STM were in the ascendancy. Tucker-Dixon again showed promise and saw a good effort saved whilst Olly Smith was unluck for the second week in a row to have hit the woodwork with a free-kick. STM clinched the game with a fourth late on in what was an entertaining affair between two sides hoping to be top three contenders come the end of the campaign. 


Next week see's the visit of Garden Village to Jubilee Way. Village although beaten by us in the seasons opening game have been on a good run so once more, another tough game awaits the boys. 



East Gwent Division

 

Caldicot Town 3rds 3 - 2 Underwood 


Town's up and down season continued under new boss Christian McConnell on Saturday, as they recovered from last weekends heavy loss to Thornwell A, to beat Underwood at home in this tight affair. Two goals from Owen Joseph and a Luke Evans goal ensured Town took the points on offer. Caldicot now sit 7th out of the 15 strong league table.



Sunday 3 December 2017


Gwent County Youth Division  


Caldicot Town Youth 4 - 1 Caerleon Youth 


Last seasons winner of the Golden Boot, Tyler Wilson claimed a hatrick on Sunday to move him on to 12 goals for the season, just two behind joint leader Luke Evans, who added another goal to his weekend tally where he scored two on Friday night for the reserves, followed up by a goal on Saturday for the third team to make it a weekend total of 4 goals. Town sit 8th out of 16 in the league although they have a few games in hand that could see them elevated to third in the table should they win these games in hand.
