Club improvements...........


Some great work from Richard White at R White Plumbing for completing the renovation works of the Ladies and Gents toilets in the Mike Johnson Lounge.


You may have noticed for those in attendance at last Friday nights match that we were sporting our new Goals at the top end of the pitch. The other set will be made up for the start of next season in what continues to be a facilities drive at the club. Having a goal that can be moved around the pitch after a game with a fixed net will provide a labour saving as it is always a struggle to get match day volunteers. Further improvements to the stand security are also in the planning stages.

Weekend Round-up

Welsh League Division 2
Saturday 17 November 2018

AFC Llywdcoed 1 - 4 Caldicot Town

A cold crisp day awaited Town as they made the journey to the Welfare ground to take on Llywdcoed. Manager Tony Wallis and his assistant, Simon Truman have got the team on a winning league run and were unlucky to bow out of the Welsh Cup against Cambrian & Clydach last weekend. 

Matt James returned to the defence, and it was the captain that would break the dead-lock after he scrambled home from within the home sides 6 yard area after Simon Crook had delivered a long throw into the box. Town were well in control and had quietened down the vocal home players who were well up for the game as they took a slender lead into the end of the half.

The second half saw Town concede a sloppy goal which gave the home side instant belief that they could win the game once more. The game was tight now and started to get a little heated where the referee was doing all he could to contain things. However, things did eventually blow up after captain, Matt James, upended the volatile Llywdcoed number 6 who sought immediate retribution when striking James leaving the referee very little option but to send off the Llwydcoed player. 

Reluctantly leaving the pitch, it was Matt James turn to be spoken to by the referee with the captain receiving a yellow card as play then eventually continued. Within just minutes of the home side being reduced to ten, Caldicot scored to take a 2 - 1 lead after good work from Sam Swann, who's shot was well saved by the Llywdcoed keeper, but unfortunately for him, Connah Hughes pounced to stab in from close range.

The goal knocked the wind out of the home team who's heads started to go. A corner was then headed goal ward by Richard Sharratt and although it was blocked, Sharratt was alert and again added a third for Town after poking home another close range effort. Manager Tony Wallis had already inserted David Lloyd into to fray, and his calming influence to the game had Caldicot purring and looking for more goals. The hard working Jason Thorn was then replaced by Ben Smith who with time running out and with one of his first touches, added a fourth for Town when finishing low at the keepers near post.

A good away win as Town's recent good form continued and although the team has played more games than most around them, Caldicot now sit 4th in the table and host struggling Risca United at home next Friday night under the lights at Jubilee Way.

The reserves next game is on the 1st December where they face Croesyceiliog at Jubilee Way.
