MERTHYR SAINTS 1
WELSH Soccer League side Rhoose created their own little bit of club history on Saturday by reaching the first round proper of the FAW Welsh Cup.
Putting South Wales Amateur League side Merthyr Saints to the sword at Jenner Park, Rhoose netted through top marksman Drew Fahiya (two), James Dixon, Joe Hinds and a 'super strike' from Marcus Madder.
Rhoose dominated proceedings and, more importantly, showed signs of a welcome return to form. This bodes well for the 'Vale derby' clash with Barry Town United on Saturday, September 21, at Jenner Park (kick-off 2.30pm).
Following this emphatic display, the Vale side will now hope to push on and put a decent league run together. Some consistency definitely wouldn't go amiss and a settled squad at last - following considerable disruptions at the start to the season - will go a long way to achieving this.
