Len & Julia Newman Memorial Trophy – Round 2

Monday 09/04

Bow Street Reserves progressed to the semi finals of The Len & Julia Newman Memorial Trophy following a very competitive quarter final against a very good Bont team.

A closely contested first half saw both sides create and miss chances but Ryan Evans and Shaun Jones converted two of the home side’s opportunities. The second goal coming after a superb tackle by John James in his own area stopped a certain Bont equaliser.

Bont piled the pressure on at the beginning of the second half but were unable to convert any chances. Then, the game’s outstanding player, Joe Williams scored a splendid individual goal to clinch the tie. Osian Burrell then scored the fourth, before Bont responded with a consolation. Jac Williams with a header scored the final goal of an entertaining evening.

Manager Rhodri Jones was satisfied with the evening’s work, ‘I am delighted with the performance and the result and I feel that all the boys did extremely well against a good Bont side’
