Clarbeston Road AFC Senior Team Reach The Cup Final
On Sunday 24/7 Clarbeston Road AFC and Cleddau Warriors Disability football Team took part in the very first FAW Integrated Tournament at the ground of Penclawdd Utd Swansea. The format being a 11 aside match with full regulations lasting 50 mins in total. The permitted mix was 6 Clarby players and 5 Cleddau players playing at any one time. We brought along 7 Clarby players and 11 Cleddau.
The day was a very successful and rewarding one. Clarby/Cleddau`s first game was up against Tournament favourites Penclawdd Utd/ Swansea City Bravehearts.
Clarbeston Road AFC’s senior team has reached the final of the Pembrokeshire Senior Cup for the first time in the club’s history having defeated last years’ champions Goodwick United 2-1 on Wednesday 15th February at Bridge Meadow, the home of Haverfordwest County AFC. Goodwick took an early lead through Adam Raymond but Clarby pulled themselves back into the game through an equaliser just before half time from Jason Griffiths. The winning goal from Josh Wood, his first of the season since moving up from junior football to the senior squad, came 20 minutes into the second half, setting up a tense finish before the vociferous group of Clarby supporters in the stand were able to celebrate. The final, to be played against Merlins Bridge will also be held at Bridge Meadow on Saturday 22nd April.
On Sunday 7th August 2016 the Clarby/Cleddau Integrated
football team travelled to Bridgend to conclude this season`s
round of integrated football matches. Due to unavailability
Clarby had to make several changes to the team that played
in the first round of matches two weeks earlier.
However ,they didn`t disappoint.
In the final round of the "round robin" games Clarby/Cleddau
drew 3-3 against a strong Bridgend/Heronsbridge team.
The draw meant that they qualified for the Cup Final.
In the final , unfortunately they once again came up against
Tournament favourites Penclawdd Utd/Swansea City
Bravehearts and went down by 7-3.
A big thank you to all players and coaches who gave up
their time to make this tournament a very successful one.
We look forward to next season`s tournament which will be
jointly held by Clarbeston Road AFC and Penrhyncoch AFC of Aberystwyth.
