Vale of Glamorgan Senior Football League Round Up
The Vale football league was hit by major disruption this weekend with a number of the games at the Buttrills Fields abandoned due to the deluge of rain that came on at kick off. Barry Saints vs SP Billy, Cadoxton Imps vs Cardiff Airport, Tynewydd vs Sully Sports, BRT Dynamos vs Barry Albion and Cwm Talwg vs Cadoxton Athletic all abandoned due to waterlogged pitches.
However, there were a handful of games played elsewhere around the Vale, Llantwit Major maintained their 100% start in Division Two while ending Cadoxton Barry’s own perfect start with a big 4-0 away win over the leaders coming into the weekend. St Athan B picked up their first three points of the campaign to follow on from last week’s draw, as they dispatched Island Marine B 2-1, Vale Madrid continued their winning run and went top with a 3-0 victory over bottom club Glenbrook and AFC Rhoose B hammered BV 5-0 to go fifth.
