COGAN 0 TYNEWYDD FC 1
TYNNY'S Vale of Glamorgan Soccer League (First Division) side made the short trip to Cogan on the back of a solid draw with the Dockers.
Tynny started brightly, creating chances and testing the Cogan keeper early on. On the 25-minute mark captain Lewis Union produced some lovely close control and fired in a cross which was deflected out to Jammo who, from 15 yards out, took one touch and curled his shot into the net for a deserved 1-0 lead. Tynny should really have added to their advantage while they were on top but the half finished 1-0.
Cogan started the second half better, using their full complement of subs and had the better of the play without creating too much to worry the solid Tynny back four of Brandon, Jodie, Simon and Wesley who ensured good protection for goalkeeper Callum. Tynny closed the game out and were happy with a clean sheet and all three points.
Man of the match went to Simon Bellamy for his commanding role at centre back.
BOROUGH FC 0 TYNEWYDD FC 8
TYNNY faced an experienced Borough side on Saturday but, after a good start to the season, were full of confidence and that showed virtually straight away.
And, when Lewis Union cut in from the right hand side of the box to curl in an absolute pearler into the top corner from 25 yards out to give the Tynny an early lead, the writing was on the wall.
The lead was quickly doubled when Lewis beat the offside trap and crossed for Jammo to slot home from close range; not long after Jammo grabbed his second and the Tynny's third when he drilled in a half volley from the middle of the box.
The Tynny were playing some lovely football and, just before the break, Jammo floated a 30-yard pass to Ross Smith's foot and he neatly chipped the onrushing 'keeper for a 4-0 half-time lead. Maintaining the momentum in the second half, Tynny grabbed another early goal through Lewis when a mazy Messi-like run from the halfway line resulted in him rounding the 'keeper to grab his second.
Tynny's defenders were making sure everything was dealt with at the back, restricting the Boro' to just a few chances, while the midfield duo of Hespy and Colburn were controlling well.
A long goal kick from Callum midway through the half found its way through to Ross who instantly volleyed home from all of 25 yards. Smith quickly grabbed his hat-trick - his second in three games - when he fired in a low shot which managed to squeak into the bottom corner.
Lloyd Union replaced Ross and was on the scoresheet within minutes when he cleverly finished off a cross from youngster Brandon on the left. This was one of the Tynny's best results in recent times, with everyone playing a major part from front to back and, as such, the man of the match votes were quiet spread out. But Jodie Shepherd won it for his dominating display at the back, winning every header that came his way.
Squad: C Colman, Brandon, J Brana, J Shepherd, N Haincock, S Bellamy, W Lomax, J Reed, M Hesp, A Colburn, L Union (c), J Clissett, R Smith, Ll Union, L Peterson and G Union.
