Ryan Edwards sent off as 9 man Wales draw with N Ireland

The Wales Semi Professional team had to settle for a point in their opening International Challenge Trophy match in Shamrock Park, Belfast this evening.

The young Welsh side battled tirelessly with nine-men after Neath's Sean Cronin and Airbus UK's Ryan Edwards were shown straight red cards by local referee Stephen Weatherall.

The Reds made a great start when Haverfordwest striker Jack Christopher scored a clinical header from a dangerous Scott Barrow corner after just three minutes. Shortly afterwards, Steven Cann made an excellent save from ex-Wrexham winger Michael Carvill. Christopher then overstretched a hamstring and was replaced by Craig Moses on fifteen minutes and it was the sub who scored the Welsh second. Captain Craig Jones made a trademark break down the right and his centre was laid on a plate for Moses to tap home on 24 minutes.

Just three minutes later, the hosts responded with an excellently struck free-kick from Daryl Fordyce into the top left corner. Cronin was dismissed on 34 minutes on his debut when the assistant referee saw an off-the-ball incident. Wales had two excellent chances to extend their advantage, but Craig Moses and Curtis McDonald squandered the opportunities.

Ryan Edwards was sent off on 70 minutes for handling on the line and from the resulting penalty Stephen Cann saved excellently from Carvill. The Irish continued to exert pressure and despite having another ex-Wrexham player Rob Garrett sent-off for a second bookable offence, they equalised at the death when Jay Magee tapped in at the far post at a corner when Wales couldn't clear their lines.

It was a disappointing end to the night for the courageous Welsh side, who deserved more, but for some indifferent decisions by the home referee.


Wales: Stephen CANN (Aberystwyth Town); Ryan EDWARDS (Airbus UK Broughton FC), Lee BEVAN (Haverfordwest County), Sean CRONIN (Neath FC), Curtis MCDONALD (Forest Green Rovers); Craig JONES (c) (The New Saints FC), Aeron EDWARDS (The New Saints FC), Ashley WILLIAMS (Airbus UK Broughton FC) Scott BARROW (Port Talbot Town); Luke SHERBON (Aberystwyth Town); Jack CHRISTOPHER (Haverfordwest County)

Newtown match summary

The Wingmakers are looking good for 3 points with a 1-0 lead over Newtown at half time courtesy of Carl Owen goal on 35'.
Never a comfortable scoreline to lead by a single goal, so Danny Desormeaux put the home fans at ease on 88' making it Broughton 2-0 Newtown, 3 points in the bag?
Game over and 3 points for the Wingmakers. It was a very good day for Airbus at the Airfield and elsewhere in the league. All the teams below us who cold have caught us all lost, Carmarthen delivered the biggest upset losing at home to Porthmadog 3-1, Bangor City lost at Victoria Road 2-1 against Port Talbot, and Bala losing at Prestatyn last night and Haverfordwest losing at home to Llanelli. We now have the luxury of a 4 point cushion over the next team below us (and also a 4 point gap to the team directly above us).
The only disappointing thing about today was the size of the crowd at the Airfield, just 114 turned up to watch.

Broughton line up:
K Rogers, R Edwards, G Feliciello, M Woodward, M Allen, R Roberts, M Cook, D Desormeaux,
J Abraham, M Lloyd Williams, C Owen,

G Sudlow, P McManus, G McConnell, N Challinor.

Delay on Football Trust grant

News on the new stand is that the Football Trust who give out the grant aid have postponed their decision until the New Year on if, or not we will get any funding which is a disappointment as we would have liked to crack on with developments to bring the seating up to the minimum 500 seats required for the Domestic Licence.

Airbus slip to 8th following today's win for Port Talbot at Caersws

Port Talbot were 2-1 winners at the Rec with goals from Liam McCreesh in the 1st minute Matt Prosser drew the home side level on 4' and Drew Fahiya got Port's winner on 14'. the 3 points was enough to move them above Airbus into 7th place.

In the other games Rhyl drew 0-0 at home to Llanelli in front of a disappointing crowd for them 589, the point was enough to reclaim top spot from Neath, while Llanelli remain 3rd.

The mid-table battle between Carmarthen and Bangor City ended all square at 2-2 Carmarthen twice took the lead through Tim Hicks and Nicky Palmer, but Bangor level each time with goals from Jamie Reed and Marc Limbert.

The battle at the bottom saw Welshpool earn all 3 points over winless and bottom club Porthmadog, 2 goals in quick succession in the 59' and 61 was enough for Welshpool 2nd win of the season.

Airbus get revenge for cup defeat

Wingmakers broke another hoodoo tonight, by beating The Nomads for the first time at the Airfield in the welsh premier league.

And they did it in style winning by 4-0. After a goalless first half Carl Owen put us 1-0 on 51' 5' later Matty Cook doubled the lead, following recent games when we have let a two goal slip I have expected Nomads score two goals, but defender Rhys Roberts put that fear to bed by scoring the 3rd on 67'.

And just for good measure sub Gary McConnell made it 4-0 with 3' left of normal time to see off Nomads in emphatic style, and our 4 goals tonight makes us the 2nd highest scorers in the league with 25, just 1 behind Rhyl. The 3 points see's Airbus move up to 7th in the table until at least 4:30 tomorrow.

Broughton Line up:
K Rogers, R Edwards, G Feliciano, M Woodward, R Roberts, M Cook, A Williams, D Desormeaux,
C Owen, M L Williams, J Abraham.

M Allen, G McConnell, A Mitchell, G Cowell, N Challinor.

Airbus boss ready for Nomads

Wingmakers boss Craig Harrison is ready to bring some changes to his starting XI, but he doesn’t believe there are any benefits to last week’s Welsh Cup exit.

When asked if the result now frees his side up to concentrate on the league, Harrison said: “It always makes me laugh when I hear that, because me being me – whether it is just a crazy football quote or whether people actually think that, I don’t.

“I’m actually gutted we’re out and we could concentrate on the league just as much as if we were still in the cup. So it’s something people sometimes say as an excuse to paper over the cracks.”

Nomads boss Mark McGregor said “After we played on Saturday, I said to the lads ‘Make sure you’re all up for next week’s game because they’re going to be thinking they want to avoid another defeat against local rivals, so they’re going to be gunning for us.”
