The Reserve game at Trefelin is off as Ynys Park is waterlogged
The Youth cup tie against Caldicot Town was won in the first 18 minutes when Jay Thomas netted our fourth goal. Patrick Finneral had opened the scoring with goals in the 10th and 11th minutes with Morgan Freeman adding a third on 13. Caldicot had actually started quite well forcing us into a couple of defensive mistakes but once the goals started flowing there was no doubting the winner. Several chances went begging before on 45 minutes full back Myles Perkins crossed from the left touchline, the Caldicot keeper misjudged it and it sailed into the back of the net for his first goal at this level.
Toby Link-Jones bundled in a corner on 51 minutes to make it 6-0 and Morgan Freeman made it seven with a right footed shot from just inside the area. There were no more goals but we kept a clean sheet and introduced some more players to this level of football.
