Costcutter League unbeaten leaders St Dogmaels are gearing up for a vital period when the Teifi Estuary villagers could virtually wrap up the Division One title and reach three cup finals.

Saints take on Lampeter Town in a J Emrys Morgan Cup semi-final tie at Newcastle Emlyn tonight (Tuesday), visit second in the table Crannog for a league six-pointer on Saturday and clash with Llandysul next Tuesday for a place in the final of the Easter Monday League Cup.

After that it does not get any easier for the high-flyer who are involved in a Cwpan Coffa Dai Dynamo Davies semi-final against Crannog at Newcastle Emlyn on April 9.

If Jason Williams and colleagues make progress in the cup competitions they will face two finals in three days over the Easter weekend.

And a return of three points in Llangrannog this weekend would in effect be game set and match as far as the league championship is concerned.

Warming up for the challenges ahead Saints sprang a 5-0 win over visitors Felinfach at School Field where manager Steve Jerry Williams emptied the bench for the second half to give players a rest before Tuesday’s cup tie.

To their credit Felinfach played some neat football and were in contention up until the interval when trailing by a solitary goal.

The homesters netted in the opening quarter when a Peter Almond stab at the target rebounded to Louis Harding who made no mistake from six yards.

That’s how it remained until the second period when central defender and skipper Jason Williams tapped home to double his side’s advantage.

Harding back-heeled a pass to Jack Thomas who found the bottom corner of the net for the third goal before central midfielder Adam Williams hit an unstoppable 22-yards free kick into the corner of the net and super sub Mike Diggle made it a nap hand.

Without a game for some weeks Lampeter Town showed rustiness against Aberaeron Reserves at Square Field but despite this and without a crop of unavailable regulars the visitors emerged 4-1 winners.

Player/manager Terry Witts included two 16-year-olds in Rhys Davies at right back and Bryn Jones up front and both acquitted themselves well.

It was young Jones who set up Jason Jones for the opening goal before a home defender had the misfortune to put through his own goal and central midfielder Marc Evans made it 3-0 before the break.

Jason Jones was again on target during the second half to wrap up the points but Aeron had the last say when Lamin Manjang netted a consolation goal.

Crannog kept up the pressure on St Dogmaels with a 4-1 win against Llanboidy at Cae Dandre; Llandysul brushed aside visitors Cardigan Town 4-0 while Ffostrasol and doomed Bargod Rangers shared the spoils in a 1-1 draw at Troedyrhiw Park.
