Vale of Glamorgan Football League Preview – 6/4/19
Rhys Hocking’s 35 yard screamer put Penarth Town B on their way to 4-2 Dockers Cup triumph over Vale Madrid at Jenner Park. Hocking added his second while Lewis Slack and Owen Miller notched the other two to see Penarth lift the trophy, that dates back 98 years, for the first time.
In Division One the race for promotion is hotting up as it reaches it crescendo with Cadoxton Imps coming out 2-1 victors over Tynewydd. Jamie Livingston and a Kyle Henderson winner giving Imps all three points. The win puts Imps second on goal difference with a game in hand and two games to go. Tynny now have to hope Imps slip up before their final league game at the end of April. Division One Champions Holton Road rediscovered their title winning form and saw off in form Cardiff Airport 1-0. With the Supporters Cup final coming up next week and the SWFA Intermediate Cup Semi final in two weeks it’s a much needed boost for the impressive outfit. Cogan Coronation move above Airport into fourth with a 4-2 win over SP Billy, Cogan can still finish second but would require the two sides above them to lose their remaining games, Cogan coincidently play Imps in two weeks.
It’s a massive weekend in the Vale football league with several big games on Super Saturday, but we start on Sunday.
This Sunday at Jenner Park it’s the first silverware of the season up for grabs, as Division Two’s Dockers Cup will be contested. Penarth Town B go in as favourites against the cup underdogs Vale Madrid. Vale Madrid have thrown league form out of the window to arrive at Jenner, they saw off Barry Athletic B and Island Marine B, while Penarth B’s route to Jenner saw them defeat the top two sides in the division, Barry Vikings and AFC Rhoose B. It should be an excellent game and a fine afternoon.
What a weekend it will be, Super Saturday and a Cup Final on Sunday. Check back Sunday evening for a full round up.
