Firstly big shout out to Cogan (Under 14’s), Porthkerry Panthers (under 16’s) & Cowbridge Town (Under 16’s) who all safely progressed into the second round of the South Wales FA Junior Cup keep flying the flag for Vale football boys. Games to be played on the weekend of 7/8th March.
Secondly a speedy recovery to the young Dinas under 16 player in the game against Holton all the best from everyone in the league.
For the first time in a while it was nice to see a full programme of games played in the Jnr Section.
Under 12’s Premiership
Barry Town Blues kept their fine start to the season going with a comfortable win against Llantwit. Meanwhile Dinas managed to come out on top in a battle at Cowbridge with a narrow 2-1 victory.
Under 12’s Championship
Barry Athletic maintained their 100% start to the season in the derby match against Island Marine. Cowbridge Blacks looking to catch Athletic had a fine win against Sully as the title race hots up. Cowbridge Bulls at the other end of the table picked up a valuable point at middle of the table Llantwit.
Under 13’s Premiership
Sully Blacks on their travels to Cowbridge picked up another 3 points to give them a clear 11 out of 11 start to the season. Cardiff Airport are in hot pursuit with a big 6 pointer coming up on 15th Feb. With bottom but one playing the runners up in the Championship at the end of the season Barry Athletic Stags edged out a spirited Dinas Powys who were looking for their first points of the season.
Under 13’s Championship
Sully whites remain top but Inter Penarth are not too far behind. Barry Town Yellows missed the chance to close the gap as Holton Road came out winners.
Penarth Town Raiders top the league but lost out on the weekend in the SWFA Jnr Cup. With Cogan and Dinas not having league games Rhoose notched up another 3 points beating Barry Phoenix 2-0 to keep them in the runners up spot.
In the big top of the table clash Cowbridge Reds took all three points beating Island Marine 6-1. In the chasing pack behind Cowbridge Blacks and Sully Whites fought out a tough 2-2 draw.
What a league this is turning out to be both Cowbridge Town Reds and Porthkerry Panthers have 100% records. Something has to give so if you’re at a loose end on 15th Feb make your way to St Brides as these two giants meet. That promises to be a cracker as both teams have been a credit to Vale for many in year. Cogan managed to close the gap on the leaders beating Cowbridge Blacks.
