While we’ve had some respite from the rain and were looking forward to a full fixture programme, frost decided to pay a visit instead. A number of games were able to go ahead, but equally quite a few had to be postponed.
In the Tesco cup St Albans edged a close encounter with Llantwit Major by two goals to one. Rhiwbina’s game with Cascade was called off by the referee because of the poor state of the pitch as a result of the frost.
In the A Division Maindy achieved what they’ve been threatening to do for some time. They overwhelmed a weakened Pentwyn side with a second-half tally of seven goals to run out 8-1 winners.
In the B Division league leaders Butetown achieved a comprehensive 8-2 victory over Radyr and second-placed Caerau maintain their place in second with a 6-0 win over Marlboro White. In the C Division, runaway leaders Marshfield maintained their position as the league’s dominant force by inflicting Marlboro Red’s first defeat of the season with an 8-1 win.
Some unexpectedly big victories/defeats today. It looks as though quite a few teams were carrying a New Year hangover, while others were making good their New Year’s resolutions.
