Vale of Glamorgan Football League Round Up 18/2
- Holton Road continued their march to the title as they overcame third place AFC Rhoose in a hard fought battle. Goals from Tyrell Williams and Jack Cutajar in either half gave Holton Road a 2-0 win and took their perfect record to 12 wins out of 12 league games, keeping them six points ahead at the top.
- Island Marine sit in second place and kept up their fine form Josh Davies scoring twice in a 2-1 win over Penarth Town at Bryn Y Don. While Marine sit six points off Holton Road, they do have a game in hand and still have to play the leaders one more time in the league.
- Sully Sports salvaged a draw against Barry Athletic in a combative battle of a game between two good sides. Jay Slack put Athletic ahead before Kieran Ashton levelled for Sully from the spot, but Lewis Avaient restored Athletic’s lead before the break. However, seven minutes before the end Feran Kanda equalised for Sully to ensure a point apiece. The result ends Sully’s winning run of seven games in all competitions but they remain unbeaten since October, they play the league leaders next week.
