The bluebirds faced a very strong Penrhyncoch side in a first pre-season friendly at Cae Baker. The squad was bursting with Pembrokeshire players all keen to show what they could do.
A very bright start saw the bluebirds pressing forward in numbers, playing some excellent free-flowing football. Penrhyncoch continued to throw their bodies in the way to block a succession of shots. The breakthrough came on 31 minutes when joint player-coach Chris O'Sullivan hit a wicked curling effort from 25 yards which deceived the keeper.
Half Time 0-1
The second half had a more even balance to it with the bluebirds newly constructed defence performing well. Meanwhile 'man of the match' striker Ashley Bevan leading the line for the first time in a bluebirds shirt continued to threaten. Fittingly it was he that bagged the second as he latched onto a return ball from substitute Alfie Stotter to smash a netbuster home from 18 yards. He then went on to hit the woodwork with a header and continued to be a handful throughout the match.
Full Time 0-2
This was a thoroughly encouraging all round team performance, especially as more than half of the side were newcomers to the club. Early days and certainly no cause to get carried away but nonetheless plenty of reasons to be optimistic.
