RHOOSE FC 7
CWMAMAN INSTITUTE 0
WITH head coach Paul Giles calling on his Rhoose side to secure three points from Saturday's Welsh Soccer League clash and also to try and 'repair' a previously fading goal difference, his objectives were comprehensively delivered.
A brilliant hat-trick from Jacob Daly, two from top marksman Drew Fahiya and goals from assist specialists Nicky Davison and Oliver Dalton saw the Vale side score at regular intervals throughout the Third Division match and run out deserved and comfortable winners.
The win also served to consolidate the side's mid-table position and, with half of their league fixtures now played, it will, hopefully, provide the momentum for them to push well into the top half of the table. And, with a great number of games in hand, a top three spot is not out of the question.
Rhoose face the long trek to Newcastle Emlyn, deep into West Wales, for their next match on Saturday ( March 8) - the furthest trip they have to make in this season's league campaign. They will hope to maintain the decent form they have been displaying of late - undoubtedly reaping the benefits of being able to field a settled squad at long last, having previously been disrupted by seemingly endless injuries and suspensions.
The side's next home game at Jenner Park will be against Llanelli Town on Tuesday, March 11; kick-off 7.45pm.
Rhoose have signed promising 19-year-old playmaker Abdel Boulaiche from AFC Butetown. Boulaiche’s registration will be finalised this week in time for the Newcastle Emlyn trip.
Manager 'Gilo' commented: "Abdel will give us greater depth to our squad, particularly up front, and give us further, useful options. He is quick, dynamic and has good, quick feet and that extra pace that will worry defenders."
Rhoose: Damian Lack, Craig Green, Gareth Powner, Michael Osborne, Oliver Dalton, Richard Yarr, Liam Jones, Jacob Daly, Nicky Davison, Drew Fahiya, Joe Hinds, Sion Anstee, David Stevenson and Steve Hill.
