Barry Town extend unbeaten league run to seven games
11:02am Wednesday 23rd October 2013 in Sport
BARRY Town United will host a half-term Halloween 'spook-tacular' on Tuesday, October 29, at Jenner Park, as the Town face the frighteningly fearsome Abertillery Bluebirds (7.45pm kick-off).
On that night, everyone attending in Halloween costume will receive a ticket to a half-time draw, with a pair of new Barry replica shirts among the fang-tastic prizes on offer.
A gaggle of ghoulish goody bags will also be up for grabs, among other treats, making the match a hair-raising highlight of the Barry half-term holiday.
As for tricks, manager Gavin Chesterfield will hope his players have enough of them to see off Abertillery and ensure there is no horror show on the pitch this Halloween!
Meanwhile, supporters can expect a special Halloween-themed stadium, with club volunteers getting in on the act and a host of spooky songs taking over the tannoy system.
The fan-owned community club is hoping to make it an evening of freaky fun for all the family, and will be welcoming children free of charge when accompanied by a paying adult.
Entry on the night is £4 (adults), £3 (OAP/student) and £2 (unaccompanied children), via both the Gladstone Road and Barry Road turnstiles.
TREHARRIS ATHLETIC 1
BARRY TOWN UNITED 3
Last Saturday, it was all focus and no hocus pocus as Barry extended their unbeaten league record with a win at Treharris Athletic.
Traditionally a difficult trip, the Town raced into the lead after 10 minutes when striker Ryan Jenkins popped up at the back post to head in a teasing cross from the right.
Fellow forward TJ Nagi doubled Barry's advantage on the half hour, finishing with his trademark composure to the delight of the large and vocal travelling Barry contingent.
On 61 minutes, Treharris found their way back into the match, awakening memories of their league cup comeback last season that eventually saw off Chesterfield's side.
However, there would be no such repeat this year, with Jenkins scoring his second and Barry's third with 12 minutes remaining to secure the all-important three points.
As a result of the win, Barry stay in third with 19 points from seven games, leaving them within four points of leaders Risca with three games in hand. Second-placed Llanwern are the only other unbeaten side, and stand a point and a match ahead of Barry.
This Saturday, weather permitting, Barry will make the short, 10-mile journey east to Llantwit Major for a hotly-anticipated local derby. Llantwit have started their campaign well, and currently sit in fifth, with four wins and two draws from their opening seven fixtures.
