Vale of Glamorgan Football League Preview – 6/4/19

Vale of Glamorgan Football League Preview – 6/4/19 

This Sunday the Supporters Cup takes centre stage as Jenner Park hosts the final between Holton Road and Cadoxton Barry. Holton Road will be looking to complete the second part of their treble chase to add to their Division One title. Cadoxton Barry’s run to the final has been gallant, but they go in as huge underdogs, can they upset the odds.
In the Premier Division, with the title settled last week Champions Barry Athletic get a week off as the attention turns to the race for second place. AFC Rhoose are current favourites to maintain second as they host Sully Sports, but they know Island Marine and Cowbridge Town will be ready to pounce on any slip up. However, those two sides play each other this weekend with Rhoose hoping for a draw. Meanwhile Penarth Town will be looking to finish the season strong ahead of their Barry Cup final at the end of the month, they host St Athan.
In Division One, the chase for promotion turned in Cadoxton Imps favour last week as they came out on top against Tynewydd. Can Imps follow it up this week against Cardiff Airport. Airport still have aspirations of a fourth place finish and last weeks narrow loss to Holton Road was their first in five games. Imps know promotion is in their hands and with a superior goal difference a win on Saturday would almost all but guarantee it.
In Division Two, the title race continues. In mid week Barry Vikings defeated Barry Athletic B 2-1 to move within two points of leaders AFC Rhoose B and three points ahead of third place St Athan B, having played a game less than both. Saturday Barry Vikings travel to St Athan in a crunch title match, a loss could be very damaging to both sides title aspirations especially if AFC Rhoose B secure three points against Barry Athletic B. Cadoxton Athletic saw off Dockers Cup winners Penarth Town B in mid week 2-1 to dent their late charge a place in the top three, but there is quick chance for payback as Penarth B host Cadoxton Athletic this weekend. Finally, Vale Madrid host Island Marine B hoping to bounce back from cup final disappointment and close the gap on Marine B to two points.

Vale of Glamorgan Football League Round Up – 30/3/19

Vale of Glamorgan Football League Round Up – 30/3/19 
It was Super Saturday and Sunday in the Vale league this weekend and it didn’t disappoint.

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 league action Barry Athletic sealed the Premier Division Championship for the second successive year with a 3-1 victory over Island Marine in the Island Derby. Fantastic achievement by all at the club, and with a game to spare. The focus now turns to the promotion play offs to the SWFA Alliance league.
Elsewhere, Barry Cup finalists Cowbridge Town narrowly edged past St Athan 1-0, sending them level on points with third place Marine.

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.

Only one game in Division Two as Barry Vikings fought back from two goals down to draw 2-2 with league leaders AFC Rhoose B. Cory James and Harry Lambert with the Vikings goals. The result sees Vikings go second on goal difference and five points behind Rhoose with two games in hand. Vikings play Barry Athletic B in mid week and third place St Athan next weekend with it all to play for.
And finally in the ASRS Cup the second semi final saw AFC Rhoose defeat Penarth Town 3-1 to book their place in the final against Island Marine.
Another big weekend of action next weekend so check back here for a full round up.

Vale of Glamorgan Football League Preview – 30/3/19

Vale of Glamorgan Football League Preview – 30/3/19 

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.

In the ASRS Cup the second semi final will be played as AFC Rhoose take on Penarth Town in what should be an absolute cracker of a game, which is just too close to call. Island Marine await the winners.
In league action Barry Athletic can seal the Premier Division Championship for the second successive year with a victory over Island Marine in the Island Derby, although Marine will be looking to spoil their rivals party and a win will send them second. Meanwhile, Barry Cup finalists Cowbridge Town travel to St Athan knowing a win could send them level on points with third if Marine lose.
The big game in Division One is the race for promotion to the prem match between Cadoxton Imps and Tynewydd. An Imps win will put them second on goal difference with a game in hand and two games to go. But a Tynny victory would more or less hand them promotion, sending them six clear with one game left. It’ll be a tense affair. Holton Road take on in form Cardiff Airport, Holton have lost their last three league games since clinching the title in January but are clearly focusing their efforts on obtaining a treble, with the Supporters Cup final coming up next week and the SWFA Intermediate Cup Semi final in two weeks. Airport, however, have won three out of their last four and will be eying third if Imps slip up. Cogan Coronation are in a similar position to Airport and will be waiting to pounce on any slips from the teams above, they play SP Billy. It will be a very interesting run in for Division One.
Only one game in Division Two but it’s huge. Barry Vikings host AFC Rhoose in a game that could go along way to deciding the Division Two title. Rhoose B are starting to slightly stutter as they have only won two of their last five league games and sit five points ahead of Vikings but have played two games more. Third place Vikings have won seven league games on the bounce and know a victory puts the title race in their hands. St Athan B will watch on with an interested eye in second.

What a weekend it will be, Super Saturday and a Cup Final on Sunday. Check back Sunday evening for a full round up.
