ABERDARE TOWN 4
RHOOSE crashed out of the Welsh Soccer League Nathaniel Car Sales Cup on Saturday.
Facing First Division Aberdare Town at Aberaman Park, Third Division Rhoose started well but soon came under pressure and, following a poor clearance from a set piece, trailed after 15 minutes.
Two further goals for Aberdare followed in the first half, one being an unstoppable direct free kick from outside the penalty area.
Drew Fahiya pulled a goal back from close range for Rhoose following some good work down the left involving Jacob Daley and Sion Anstee.
Again, Rhoose started the second half positively and, it has to be said, largely held their own for long periods.
However, the First Division side’s class told as the game progressed although the eventual scoreline slightly flattered the home side.
Rhoose entertain Merthyr Saints in the Welsh Cup at Jenner Park this Saturday, September 14 - kick-off 2.30pm- and will be looking to bounce back in Welsh football’s most prestigious cup competition.
