Weekend Round-up

Welsh League Division 2
Saturday January 12 2019

Abergavenny Town 0 - 2 Caldicot Town 

After another outstanding home win last weekend at home against Caerau Ely, Tony Wallis had an even harder task in taking his team to league leaders Abergavenny Town on Saturday.

This week, Richard Sharratt was missing so Gareth Wesson took the arm band as Matt James returned from suspension and was joined by Jason Thorn and Garin Withers who both missed the win against Caerau. Alex Watkins was on the bench having scored the winner in last weekends game and was hoping he could make an impact once more.

There was a strong breeze and the temperature had dropped at Penny-pound lane where a heavy looking pitch with a few bobbles caused the home defence some early problems as Giancarlo used his pace to get at the home defence on more than one occasion. Abergavenny were winning a lot of free-kicks and set piece early on putting Caldicot's defence under pressure although they were standing firm. 

Caldicot were creating some good chances and for a bit more luck, Giancarlo would have tucked away a chance that seemed harder to miss than score. Then on 12 minutes, Caldicot did take the lead after some good work down the right saw Harri Shelley pop up from the left to finish well. The game was end to end with both sides creating chances. Abergavenny indeed should have equalised after beating the off side trap but once again, players hitting form at the right time, including keeper Gareth Wesson who stood up well and saved at the strikers feet before the ball was struck against a Caldicot defender on the line before going to safety.

The home side were trying hard to get on equal terms, and after winning a free-kick down their right hand side, the ball was swung in, beating everyone bar the Abergavenny striker bundled the ball home only for it to be disallowed for off-side. A tight call, yes, but the official had a better view than me, and I certainly wasn't going to argue with his decision. Irate about the goal being disallowed, the home team took there eye off the ball and with injury time being played, Caldicot went down the other end and scored through Giancarlo from close range to make it 2-0 to Caldicot.

The second half was not a great affair. Caldicot could afford to soak up the Abergavenny attacks and play counter attack which was fine. A few more chances started falling to Caldicot late on as Abergavenny threw caution to the wind, Sam Swann and Harri Shelley coming close. All in all it was another efficient performance where mistakes are minimal and chances are being created and taken as well.

Next week Caldicot face Garden Village at home. Hopefully the focus will continue as apart from Swansea Uni, Town have faced most of teh so called challengers for promotion now. A lot have teams have games in hand currently so the 4th place that Town find themselves in will probably change, but you never know? We could still get Snow and a back log of cancelled fixtures having to be played could still give an outside chance to Caldicot as long as we keep focusing on the next game etc etc.

Welsh League Reserve Division East
Saturday January 12 2019

Caldicot Reserves 1 - 3 Bridgend Street Reserves

The Reserves went down for at home against Bridgend Street having lost 2-1 away at Abergavenny the week before.

East Gwent Division 1
Saturday January 19 2019

Thornwell Red & White v Caldicot Town 

The thirds play Thornwell having been spanked by them in the teams last game losing 16 - 0 at home. Hopefully the team will have more than 9 players available and show a bit more spirit next time around.

Welsh Womens League Div 1 
Sunday January 13 2019

 Caldicot Town Ladies 0 - 0 Barry Town Utd Ladies

The Ladies could only get a draw with promotion rivals Barry at Jubilee Way on Sunday where they had the better of the game. A 3-3 draw away at Splott Albion last week has meant that the Ladies no longer have their 100% winning run and the 4 points dropped has seen them slip to 2nd in the table, just 1 point behind new leaders Aberystwyth. Luke Harris and his team have the chance to get back to winning ways this Sunday where they face Willows Ladies at home on Sunday.
