Vale of Glamorgan Football League Preview – 9/3/19
The Division Two title race heats up this weekend, AFC Rhoose B return to play the same side who gave them a Dockers Cup humbling last week, as the leaders head back to play Penarth Town B. Penarth B have raced into contention in recent weeks and could go four points behind Rhoose B with a win. However, Barry Vikings will take top spot if Rhoose B slip up and they are victorious over Cadoxton Athletic. St Athan B will also be hoping for slip ups from Rhoose B and Barry Vikings, a win for them over Vale Madrid would take them top, although they have played two games more. Vale Madrid is no simple task, after booking their Dockers Cup final spot last week, they are a side in resurgence. Barry Athletic B will look to return to winning ways as they host Island Marine B in the Island Derby, Marine B can go within a point of Athletic B with a win.
In Division One, Champions Holton Road fresh of their Supporters cup semi final success last week, face bottom side SP Billy as they look to get back to winning ways in the league too. Cadoxton Imps will be focused on keeping their push for second place on track as they host Cwm Talwg, and a now inform Cardiff Airport will look to continue their recent run as they play Supporters Cup finalists Cadoxton Barry in a tricky encounter.
Just one game in the Premier Division as leaders Barry Athletic head to play St Athan. Athletic now just need two wins from their last three games to claim their second successive Premier Division championship.
The last divisional cup semi final is also due to be played as AFC Rhoose play Penarth Town for the right to play Island Marine in the ASRS Cup final. An intriguing cup tie that could go either way.
Let’s hope the rain stops and all games get played as we get to the business end of the season.
