Vale Football League Round Up 31/8
The Vale football league continued this past Saturday with the action coming thick and fast. The leagues are taking shape and the mover and shakers in each division are starting to come clear.
AFC Rhoose continue to set the pace as they routed Tynewydd 6-0 at Ceri Road, Josh Bryan and Charlie Carr got a brace a piece, with Joel Preece and Liam Butcher adding one each. The result sees Rhoose make it three out of three and sit atop of the Premier Division.
Hot on their tails are Holton Road who eased to a 5-1 victory over St Athan at the BSC, with Dan Morgan notching a hat trick. Holton have now won two out of two and seem to be carrying their incredible form from last season into this.
Cadoxton Imps, fresh off their huge win over Barry Athletic, came crashing back down to earth as Cogan Coronation edged them 3-2, to inflict the Imps first defeat of the season and, at the same time, give Cogan their first win.
Barry Athletic bounced back from that loss to Imps to emphatically defeat Sully Sports 5-0, Lee Stradling notched two with Scott Williams, Kyle Booker and Teejay Caton adding the rest, to get Athletic back on track ahead of a huge match midweek against AFC Rhoose.
Cowbridge Town are still in search of their first points of the season as Cardiff Airport secured their first win with a 2-0 victory at the Bear Field.
In Division One, leaders Cadoxton Barry continued to set the pace with huge 8-2 win over Barry Athletic B. The result makes it three out of three for Caddy Barry and seem to be the team to beat early doors.
Island Marine B kept up their excellent start and perfect record with a 4-2 triumph over Vale Madrid, leaving Vale Madrid without a point from their first two.
Holton Road B secured their first win against Vale United in Corntown, Holton B coming out 4-2 winners, whie Barry Vikings produced a fine display to see off Rhoose Social at BSC winning 3-1, inflicting the first loss as a club on Social.
Cwm Talwg started with two narrow defeats, but got their first win of the campaign with a 4-2 win over St Athan B, while finally, AFC Rhoose B won a cracker against SP Billy 6-3 to go third, while SP look for their first points of the season.
