Hakin United 4

Merlins Bridge 0

HAKIN UNITED are on the brink of retaining the title after this four-goal demolition over arch rivals Merlins Bridge.

The Vikings won 3-6 at the Racecourse just a few weeks ago and followed up with a convincing victory at home to complete the double over the Wizards.

Starring for the Vikings was Gareth Fawcett; the defender was used as a striker in this clash and rewarded his manger Gary Dawes with two well taken goals.

The Vikings led two-nil at half time and followed up with two further goals in the second period through a Matthew Broome screamer and a first senior goal for 16-year-old substitute Marcus Allen, younger brother of team-mate Steve.

If the Vikings beat Monkon Swifts at home on Thursday night and Goodwick United lose at home against St Clears, then the Vikings will be crowned champions again.

Hakin United: James Manson, Ewan Findlay, Nathan Banner, Steve Allen, Leigh Broome, Jonathan Bennett, Matthew Broome, Ashley Bevan, Michael Cooper, James Stanmore, Gareth Fawcett. Subs: Marcus Allen, Damien Ellis, Jamie Phillips.

Merlins Bridge: Carl Woodhouse, Nathan Thomas, Lee Hudgell, Paul Thomas, Peter Thomas, Daniel Bryce, Jordan Raymond, Dai Davies, Stephen McNabney, Joe John, Simon Thomas. Subs: Robbie Waters, Kevin Phillips.

Referee: Angus Scourfield.
