After five weeks out of action it was understandable that Costcutter League Division One leaders St Dogmaels showed some rustiness in their away clash with Newcastle Emlyn.

But the unbeaten Teifi Estuary high-flyers came through the test without too many problems as they sprang a 2-1 win.

The visitors were rock solid at the back where skipper Jason Williams led by example and all his colleagues contributed to a win that was really never in doubt.

A misdirected back pass by Steve Hicks presented striker Peter Almond with a chance midway through the first half and the front-runner slotted home to put Saints in front.

That’s how it remained until the final quarter when visiting leading marksman Louis Harding found Jack Thomas out wide and the winger left two would-be tacklers in his wake before squaring to Almond who made no mistake from six yards.

Emlyn halved the deficit near the end when an attempted clearance by substitute Aarron Williams made contact with the match official and the ball fell kindly for Robbie Jenkins who blasted it into the top corner of the net.

There were gasps of disbelief when the score filtered through from the Urdd Centre in Llangrannog where Crannog won 17-0 against bottom of the pile Bargod Rangers.

Some years ago Rangers played at a higher level, but things have changed dramatically – the Parc Puw club could muster only seven players at the weekend and questions were being posed as to future prospects.

For the coastal villagers skipper Mark Davies, Rhys Davies and George Colven hit hat-tricks, Robbie Evans, Mike Glover and Steff Evans bagged a brace apiece, Huw Owen was on target and a visiting defender put through his own goal.

A good run of results for reigning champions Lampeter Town continued as the mid county side emerged 4-1 winners over Llanboidy at Cae Dandre.

After falling behind the visitors bounced back with two Gethin Hunter strikes before the interval.

Town dominated during the second period when substitute Scott Davies made it 3-0 and Marc Evans hit the fourth goal.

Cardigan Town put themselves in the right frame of mind for the visit of St Dogmaels this Saturday with a 3-0 win over visitors Aberaeron Reserves at King George V Playing Field.

Owen Williams netted twice and Josh Mellor was also on target.

In round two of the Central Wales Cup league clubs Llandysul and Ffostrasol made long treks into Powys where both were eliminated by opponents from the Mid Wales League.

Llandysul went down 5-0 against villager side Kerry near Newtown while Ffostrasol were beaten 3-0 by Hay St Mary’s at Hay-on-Wye.
