Spar Mid Wales League – Division 1

Saturday 18/02

The Cae Piod faithful experienced an extraordinary afternoon as the home team scored their highest ever number of goals in one game in their ten seasons of competing in the Spar Mid Wales league.

At half time, there was no real indication of the goal deluge that would follow as the score was only 2-0. Indeed, the first half had been a struggle at times for the home side. They soaked up all threats from Montgomery with the new look defensive partnership of Garmon Nutting and Ian Evans looking assured. Despite having a lot of possession, it took Bow Street until the 25th minute for Andrew Gittins to break the deadlock with a point blank header. Dylan James added the second 15 minutes later with a superbly taken free kick.

The other notable incident in the first was an injury to Mathew Evans which meant he was replaced by Steffan Richards.

The game as a contest was effectively over within 5 minutes after half time. First, substitute Richards scored his first, and 16 year old Tom Evans rounded the keeper to finish off an excellent move. Following that, goals came at regular intervals, and it was with great relief to Montgomery Town when the referee blew the final whistle.

The goal scorers were Steffan Richards with 4(after coming on as a substitute!), Tom Williams and Andrew Gittings 3 each, Llion Jenkins 2 and Dylan James and Tom Evans.

Bow Street chairman, Wyn Lewis said, ‘Congratulations to our lads on this record breaking achievement. It was remarkable how the second half turned out. You have to have great sympathy with Montgomery Town, and we wish them all the best for the rest of the season.’
