Welsh League Division 2

Pontypridd Town 2 - 1 Caldicot Town

Caldicot's recent good run came to an end yesterday away at Pontypridd, eventually going down 2-1. Playing out of the University grounds at Treforest, Ponty can boast of a top playing surface, and with the sun shining the scene was set for this battle of the top two teams in the second division.

Caldicot came close to opening the scoring after a frantic first 10 minutes, and after a free kick was awarded to Caldicot in a central location and around 25 yards out, Olly Smith curled a fantastic effort up and over the wall only to see the ball hit the underside of the bar before the keeper collected. 

Ponty struck back and in fairness they dominated the rest of the half and in the process exploited some poor defending to carve open a chance down the right which was neatly finished by Bellamy to put the home side 1-0 up. The home side seemed a little more at the races than their visitors and although there was a strong shout for a free kick on Olly Smith out on the touchline, Ponty swung over another pin point cross which the impressive Andrew Smith finished with a fine left footed volley to make it 2-0. 

Caldicot were rocking now and were being carved open far to easily. Gareth Wesson in the Caldicot goal had to make a one on one save before Ponty hit the up right as they looked to kill the game off  before the break which eventually arrived with no further damage done to the 2-0 deficit.

Town were much improved after the break and looked dangerous around the Ponty area none more so than when Tucker Dixon was on the ball. This was his first game for Caldicot first team, playing as a number 10, and as the pressure was starting to be applied by Caldicot, Tucker Dixon saw his one on one saved. Ponty sat back a little more which was understandable as they did not need to force the game although this did allow Caldicot the chance to gain some much needed momentum, but caution was still required as Ponty could now play on the counter attack.

Although Caldicot were more on top, finding the clear cut chances were still proving difficult. A couple of free kicks that did not really threaten were all that was on offer until Ben Smith came agonisingly close with a right footed effort that just went wide of the post. Next came controversy as Caldicot, who were awarded a free kick out on the right saw a great cross delivered to the back post which was headed in by captain Matt James, unfortunately the linesman decided that he had strayed off side? You can often tell from the reactions of players and not one Ponty player had appealed for off-side when the ball hit the net. 

Still Town poured forward but were also living dangerously at the back as every now and then, Ponty created or took advantage of a mistake presented to them, and more than ever the next goal was going to be really crucial. Manager Tony Wallis mad several substitutions as the game came to its climax and unfortunately it took until the 90th minute before Caldicot eventually unlocked the Ponty defence after a great cross saw Matt James nod in to give a slight glimmer of hope. 

With seconds remaining Ponty were defending for their lives and eventually the game finished with the home team taking the points, finding themselves just a single point behind Caldicot but with 3 games in hand. No arguments with the result though, a poor start cost Caldicot who showed what they were more capable of in the second half. I expect both sides to be in the top three promotion places based on what has happened so far this campaign and look forward to the return game at Jubilee Way next year.

Caldicot Town 3 - 0 AFC Porth

Caldicot celebrated winning two Welsh League awards for "October Team of the Month" as well as manager Tony Wallis being awarded "Manager of the Month" with a 3-0 win over struggling AFC Porth. 

After making a few signings, Porth are showing more resilience than they did earlier in the season, and a battling performance from them saw the score kept to minimum. Richard Sharratt who has moved into the number 10 berth of late, showed he still has the knack of scoring as he claimed all three goals. 

Town now face a couple of massive away games, firstly at Pontypridd before the following weeks tough trip to STM Sports.

Caldicot Town Youth 0 - 1 Carmarthen Town 19's

After Villa Dino were thrown out of the Welsh Cup after previously having beaten Caldicot, a second life was given to the youth who faced the under 19's of Carmarthen Town. A tough ask but a fine performance saw the scores level at 90 minutes and with the game looking likely to be heading to penalties, the visitors snatched a last gasp winner to break Caldicot hearts.

Tough one to take but the lads can hold their heads high after this performance!

Cyncoed Ladies 2 - 3 Caldicot Town Ladies

Welsh League Division 2

Llantwit Major 1 - 3 Caldicot Town

The hosts have a formidable record at home and after last weeks disappointing 1-1 draw at home to struggling Aberdare, Caldicot knew they would have to be at their best if they were to come away with the points. Town started with three centre halves in MJ, Guy and Matthews with Crook and Palmer working up and down the wingback berths. In midfield, James Gidney, Olly Smith and youngster Sam Swann held the middle leaving Sharratt and Ben Smith to forage for goals up front.

The first half was an even contest as both sides took it in turns to have possession, building passages of play from the back. Neither side looked ready to concede although the home side came the closest first after Palmer poor attempt at a back pass was picked up by a Llantwit player who's chipped effort went agonisingly close to breaking the deadlock. 

Town fought back with youngster Swann in the middle finding time and space to influence proceedings, and with less than 10 mins to go before the break, Town won a penalty after the official adjudged that a defender blocked a shot with his arm which on reflection you could say was harsh, although having seen the one Northern Ireland were penalised for then it was a definite penalty. Up stepped Swann with all the confidence in the world and the youngster sent the keeper the wrong way to put Town 1-0 up.

Town were now on top and should have extended their lead further after an Ash Palmer throw sailed into the area where captain, Matt James headed powerfully down into the ground only to see his effort hit the upright. Back came Llantwit, and to their credit they bombarded the Caldicot box with cross after cross which Town were just about managing to clear, albeit for corners. At the third attempt however, a perfect cross found the head of a Llantwit player who's header found the net giving no one a chance, making the score 1-1 at the break.

The second half underway and the pattern continued as both sides tried to play their football although finding the cutting edge pass was proving difficult for both teams. Town were starting to get the better of things based on the solid platform at the back and the hard working Gidney and Olly Smith who were putting in an excellent shift. Town forced a corner which Swann took short to Olly Smith who laid it back to Swann before he delivered a pin point cross to Ben Smith who's downward header beat the Llantwit keeper to make it 2-1 to Caldicot. 

The home side once again were at their most effective it seemed when they had just conceded, as they came forward with more purpose, especially down the right hand side where the number 11 was proving difficult to keep quite as he twisted and turned the Town defence, delivering crosses into the Caldicot area. One chance came and fortunately went after good work once more down the right flank saw Town exposed with a great low cross placed no more than 7 yards from the Caldicot goal only for the Llantwit player to amazingly blaze over. 

This let-off for Caldicot seemed to harden the sides resolve and for a while it seemed to deflate the home team who in reality never threatened the Caldicot goal like that for the rest of the game. Town manager Tony Wallis made changes to the formation going back to a flat back four, and also Jarman and Withers came on for Matthews and Sharratt. Town could now hit on the counter and as the home side searched for the equaliser.

Many a half chance came the way of Caldicot, one more than anything sticks in the mind as Ben Smith surged through one on one with the keeper only to see his effort saved. The game was still in the balance until Town killed the game off with a lovely goal worked well through playing some simple football which saw Garin Wither collect the ball before placing past the home keeper to seal the win.

Just a mention to the match officials who we are often all very quick to criticise, and in my own humble opinion, I thought they all did very well. I know we won the game and that may help me come to the conclusion of their performance? But I try and speak as unbiased as possible (Not always easy to do so!) and thought they managed the game well.

Caldicot are back at Jubilee Way next week where they face rock bottom Porth. A word of warning however, as Porth, who recently made a couple of new signings, found themselves 2-0 to the good against Pontardawe before it would seem they had a player sent off and would go on to lose the game 3-2. Hopefully the draw against Aberdare is still fresh in the players minds and they will be fully focused on getting the all important three points.

Welsh League Division 2

Caldicot Town 1 - 1 Aberdare Town

After Caldicot's recent good form, Saturdays home draw against second from bottom side Aberdare will be seen as a disappointment to most, especially with the tough games coming up in the next few weeks. 

Aberdare are a physical side and probably lack the quality required to see them gain promotion back to division one this season, but it wont be for the want of trying. Caldicot created enough chances throughout the game to say they should have won, but as the Welsh League proves time and time again is that there are few easy games whether your facing top or bottom sides. 

Aberdare took the lead after Caldicot captain Matt James conceded a penalty which the visitors scored. The second half saw Caldicot pile the pressure on but were finding it difficult to apply the necessary finish. Eventually the equaliser did come, Jacob Guy leaping like a salmon to nod in the long throw delivered by Ashley Palmer. 

Town continued to pressurise the away defence but could find no way through and in fact were thankful at the death that Gareth Wesson pulled off a great save down low to his left to deny what would have been an undeserved winner for Aberdare. Next up for Caldicot is a tough away fixture at newly promoted Llantwit Major.

Caldicot Town 2 - 0 Pontardawe Town

After last weekends tough 1-0 away win at Dinas Powys, Caldicot were back at Jubilee Way to face table topping Pontardawe Town. With Ben Ahmun missing and the news that David Biggs will be moving on after signing for local team STP Sports, Caldicot manager Tony Wallis had to shuffle his pack, but came up trumps against a well disciplined side. 

There was not much between the two side at first but eventually Town took the leader through captain Matt James who nodded in from an Ashley Palmer throw-in. A slender lead which Town preserved until the break. The second half saw Town press hard for a second but the Pontardawe defence held firm, none more so that their keeper who would pull off some great saves during the course of the game.

As the second half moved towards the end, Town did find the net once more, a cracking finish from Garin Withers, his second in two games running after a scramble which saw great work from Ben Smith denied and a further effort before Withers smashed the ball home.

A good win and more impressively it was a proper team performance with everyone contributing. A fourth league clean sheet in a row saw Town move top of the table, however there are teams who have games in hand due to being in cup action. It's a long way to go yet but the signs are promising from this group of players.

Caldicot Town 3 - 0 West End

A good solid win for Town off the back of last weeks Welsh Cup exit which saw Ben Ahmun claim a man of the match performance voted by the "Caldicot Town Fans" twitter feed for his all round play and a brace of goals. 

The Visitors started the better of the two teams and this was vastly different West End side from the side we have seen over the past few seasons, and I'm certain they will surprise a few teams throughout the season.

Town opened the scoring on 15 minutes with father to be David Biggs crossing a free-kick diagonally from the right for Ban Ahmun to out jump everyone to head into an unguarded net. Centre half Jacob Guy came close to scoring twice in the half, firstly from a towering header from a corner, followed by a rasping left foot volley that hit the bar.

The second half started as the first half had finished, both sides were niggling each other and it was going to take some strong officiating to ensure things did not get out of hand. On 55 minutes, Caldicot extended their lead after some great work from Ahmun which saw his curling effort hit the bar, then with the ensuing goalmouth scramble, Richard Sharratt went bravely in to see his effort hit the legs of a West End defender before being adjudged to have crossed the line by the referee's assistant to make it 2-0.

The wind was knocked out of the visitors sails now and Town could play the patience game, hitting on the counter attack. Town should have made it three on 65 minutes when after more good work from Ahmun saw him pull back a cross from the right where both Sharratt and Ben Smith were waiting, but it was Sharratt who was first in-line to side foot his effort which amazingly went wide of the post.

The game was put to bed however on 75 minutes when Ahmun grabbed his second of the game when from the right, the Centre Forward showed a deft touch as he chipped the keeper with the ball dropping into the far side netting. A lovely goal from a player who showed to day more than any other game the season what he is capable of, and long may it continue!

So three points gained and a clean sheet, manager, Tony Wallis will I'm sure be a happy man and will want to repeat this next weekend when the side visit Dinas Powys at the "Murch".

Welsh Cup Round One

Caldicot Town 2 - 3 Goytre

Town will feel that they let this game slip through their fingers after losing to a late wonder strike from Dan McDonald. Goytre looked dangerous early on which saw Jack Harris in the Caldicot goal being the busier of the two keepers but after a while, Town imposed themselves on the game and scored via a fine strike from Olly Smith. 

Town looked to be heading in at the break a goal to the good however a lost cause was kept in and the slightest of touches from defender Jacob Guy saw the Goytre player go to ground and a penalty awarded which was put away by McDonald.

The second period saw a tighter encounter and Town were dealt a blow when Ricardo McKenzie was forced off with the re-occurrence of a groin strain and was replaced by Ben Smith. 

Soon Town took the lead again through Ben Ahmun but almost immediately conceded through a mistake to make it 2-2. Then as the game looked to be heading for extra-time, that man McDonald latched on to a clearance with a sweet left foot strike that gave Harris no chance.

So Town's brief encounter in the Welsh Cup came to an end and we wish Goytre well in the next round.

Caldicot Town 1 - 0 Risca United

Town got back to winning ways on Saturday in a tight encounter against Risca at Jubilee Way. With the first half pretty even, Town were awarded a penalty after Ricardo McKenzie was adjudged to have been pulled to the ground by the linesman, and it was left to Ben Ahmun to convert the spot kick with ease, sending Town into the half-time break a goal to the good.

The second half was only minutes old when the games main controversy took place when a goal bound effort was handles by a Risca player before finding it's way into the net. The goal could have been awarded with the Risca player just receiving a yellow, however the match official claimed he blew for the offence before the ball found the net meaning the player was shown a red card and a penalty was awarded. And yes you guessed it........Ben Ahmun stepped up and saw his kick saved to keep Risca in the game. 

Now down to ten, Risca played with no pressure where as Town seemed to struggle to get back into their stride and in my opinion the visitors had the better of the remainder of the game. Still, Caldicot were obviously a bit nervous having suffered defeats in recent games and with Risca top, this was going to prove an important victory should Caldicot hang on. With time running out, Caldicot stopper Gareth Wesson pulled off a smart save to ensure Town sealed the win. Sitting eighth in the table is not great but the reality is that Town are only three points off the top! Still early with the lads still finding their way. Plenty to improve on which I am sure they will. Next up is a visit from 4th placed Ammanford.

Aberbargoed Buds 2 - 1 Caldicot Town

Town were looking to bounce back after last weeks defeat at home against Abergavenny but once again the lack of finishing cost the team as Buds were awarded a last gasp injury time penalty to ensure they claimed all 3 points. Town started well but couldn't capitalise so things were level at the break. Second half saw Town fail to take their chances and against the run of play the home team scored through an own goal by Matt James after flicking on a cross from the right leaving Wesson with no chance. 

Town pushed and eventually drew level with more than 10 minutes remaining through Richard Sharratts 3rd goal of the season. It only looked like there would be one winner now and as Caldicot players piled forward for a corner, Buds cleared and broke into the Caldicot area where Wesson was adjudged to have brought down the Buds player much to the dismay of the keeper himself. 

The spot kick was well dispatched leaving Buds as the somewhat fortunate victors. Town now face table topping Risca at home next week with old boy Liam Head returning to possibly apply more pain to Caldicot and their weary supporters.

Caldicot Town 4 - 0 AFC Llwydcoed 

Town bounced back from the disappointment of losing against STM Sports in the league to record a convincing win against Llywdcoed on the weekend. Manager, Tony Wallis introduced a few changes from that defeat and to the side that went out of the league cup against Bridgend Street and started newly signed Josh Brown up front along side Ben Ahmun. 

Youngster Samuel Swan also found himself starting in the engine room along side the experienced Richard Sharratt and James Gidney. A solid back three of Matt James, Jacob Guy and David Biggs enabled a sound platform for Oliver Smith and Garin Withers to get up and down the flanks.

The game was fairly equal for most of the opening half hour with neither keeper being called into action worth noting. With half time approaching however Caldicot were awarded a penalty which Ben Ahmun stroked home with ease to send Town into the break with a slender lead.

With less than a minute on the clock into the second half, Town extended their lead through Richard Sharratt who picked up his second goal of the season thanks to an assist from former Llywdcoed player Garin Withers.

Caldicot were in full flow now with the second goal really taking the sting out of the visiting team. Now in full confidence, the strike partnership of Brown and Ahmun came to the forth with Brown finishing off a lovely move that saw the pair interchange passes allowing Brown to score his first since rejoining the club. 

Matt James was in the wars picking up a cut to the eye but he was able to continue, determined to see the team claim a second league clean sheet. With time running out a flurry of substitutes were introduced and one of those entering the field of play was Ashley Palmer who made an immediate impact in claiming the final goal of the day to make it 4-0. 

A convincing win for Town and a clean sheet to boot, on to the next!

Caldicot Town 0 - 2 STM Sports 

After the disappointment of the midweek cup defeat at the hands of Bridgend Street, Caldicot were looking to this difficult match against STM to put things right and claim a second straight league win. Unfortunately I was unable to make this game but by all accounts STM who we knew were going to be one of the title favourites came away with all three points and were worthy winners.

The visitors by all accounts were strong in midfield and dominated that area of the park and also the first goal in itself was worthy of winning any game. Next up for Caldicot is another home game against AFC Llwydcoed who lost their opener at home to Pontardawe, bounced back in beating Dinas Powys on the weekend. Town I am sure will be desperately looking to bounce back and get that winning feeling going again this weekend.
