Youth win local derby

Two first half goals by Patrick Fineral was enough to beat Port Talbot at Victoria Road on Sunday. He scored after 35 and 40 minutes, both sides missed chances but the young Reds side picked up a deserved 3 points.

Afan Lido Youth 1 Pontardawe Youth 1

The youth led 1-0 at the interval thanks to a terrific shot from Noah Daley on 16 minutes. However we failed to capitalise with a strong wind at our backs. Pontardawe equalised on 70 minutes and both sides had chances to win the game. However once again we lacked a clinical finish in front of goal. The Pontardawe keeper made a couple of good saves but several chances went begging.

Afan Lido 4 Risca United 3

We led 1-0 at half time through a first goal for Patrick Finerall. Jake Someone added a second on 57 minutes only for Risca to pull one back on 61. Daniel Merrick made it 3-1 with a header on 74 minutes only for Risca to immediately pull one back a minute later scoring directly from a corner. Seemingly Jamie Karsang made the game safe on 80 minutes only for Risca to add a third in the 90th minute. We survived 4 minutes of added time to secure all 3 points.

Youth draw

The youth drew 2-2 with Taffs Well in a top of the table clash. We went behind on 30 minutes when the referee awarded the visitors a penalty when Craig Lewis stood his ground and the forward ran in to him before diving to the floor. We responded well and 3 minutes later Noah Daley slipped the ball past the keeper to level the score. We went ahead on 54 minutes when Taylor Evans on his return from Briton Ferry turned the ball in from a couple of yards. Taffs equalised on 66 minutes with a shot from the edge of the area. Both sides had their chances to win it but Kieran Burridge in the Lido goal made a number of outstanding saves while Noah Daley was unlucky when his 30 yard shot hit the post.
