Vale of Glamorgan Football League Preview – 20/4/19

Vale of Glamorgan Football League Preview – 20/4/19 

The big story as we head into this Easter weekend is the Division Two title race. AFC Rhoose lead the way and can clinch the championship by avoiding defeat against Vale Madrid. Meanwhile St Athan B head to Barry Athletic B hoping to give themselves the best chance of finishing second, sitting three points off top. While Barry Vikings take on Penarth as they chase that second spot and still have a game to play next weekend. Vikings are six points off top and three off second. Of course St Athan B and Barry Vikings can still win the league but for St Athan B it would take a win, a Rhoose loss and monumental shift in goal difference. For Vikings it would need a Rhoose loss and winning their remaining two games.
In the Premier Division, it’s first vs second as Barry Athletic take on AFC Rhoose with absolutely no effect or bearing on the league apart from Barry Athletic building momentum for the Alliance league promotion play off. Rhoose also played out a 2-2 mid week draw against Penarth Town.
St Athan wrap up their disappointing season away to Island Marine, it’s been a long season for St Athan as many changes have been endured at the club over the season. Island Marine can be look to finish on a high after last weeks cup final loss, but can count the campaign as a successful one with their league form and cup run.
In Division One, Champions Holton Road finish up against Cwm Talwg also playing their last game of the season, while Cadoxton Barry face Cardiff Airport. Caddy Barry can still finish fifth if they win their last two games, while Airport can seal fifth with a win in this game.

In league action in Division Two, Leaders AFC Rhoose B squeezed past Island Marine B 2-1, while St Athan B edged to a 3-2 win over Penarth Town B, and Barry Vikings suffered a shock loss to Vale Madrid, a result that lifts the latter off the foot of the table. The results see Rhoose B on the precipice of clinching the title. A victory or draw next week would seal the championship.
In Division One, Cadoxton Imps will have a wait for official confirmation after slipping to their first league defeat in seven games 3-2 against Cogan Coronation. Imps will have to wait two weeks until Tynewydd play their final game although it would require a 12 goal swing for Tynny to unseat Imps in second.

This weekend sees the ASRS Cup Final at Jenner Park between AFC Rhoose and Island Marine. The cup, which now is exclusive to VOGAFL Premier Division sides, is the leagues oldest competition dating back to 1910/11 with Barry Island winning the inaugural trophy, can Island Marine bring it back to the Island 108 years later or will AFC Rhoose add to their known three ASRS Cup triumphs. Whatever the result it promises to be an entertaining encounter this Sunday.

Finally, Cadoxton Athletic host Barry Athletic B with the hosts looking to close the gap on the visitors to one point.
In Division One, Cadoxton Imps pretty much sealed their second place finish and promotion last week but will confirm it if they avoid defeat against Cogan Coronation. Cogan will still have eyes on a third place finish but Imps are in fine form as they play their final fixture of the season. Elsewhere, SP Billy will be looking for their first win on six against Cadoxton Barry who have lost the last two league games.
No Premier Division games this weekend but there was a mid week game where Cowbridge Town held AFC Rhoose 1-1. The result competes Cowbridge’s fixtures and seals third place for them and in the process second place for AFC Rhoose, although Rhoose still have two more games to play.
