Saints march in again

FIVE points dropped in a week by Costcutter League Division One leaders Newcastle Emlyn opened the door for St Dogmaels who took full advantage with maximum points from two outings to move within six points of the pacesetters with a game in hand writes John Adey.
Some of the leading lights are sure to be glancing nervously towards the north Pembrokeshire village as Saints, strengthened by the arrival of talented young midfielders John Curran and Adam Williams from Cardigan Town and the return of injured personnel have strength in depth.
Champions New Quay also lost ground when held 4-4 at Parc Arthur by Emlyn while Lampeter Town still fresh from an emphatic win over the leaders crashed 3-0 at Aberporth and Maesglas went down 1-0 in a local derby clash with promoted Cardigan Town.
The Teifi Estuary villagers have bagged 25 goals in the past three games with prolific marksman Trevor Woodgate hitting ten.
The attacking livewire hit a hat-trick as his side sank Bargod Rangers 8-2 at Parc Puw and the other marksmen for the visitors, who led 5-0 after half an hour, were Ioan Owen (2), John Curran, Adam Williams and Aled Rees.
Saints will be expecting a sterner test this Saturday away against Lampeter Town who will be eager to get back to winning ways after the shock result at Parcllyn.
