Manderwood Pembrokeshire League Division One: St Clears 2-1 Saundersfoot Sports

St Clears picked up a deserved victory at home to a Saundersfoot side that finished with ten men.

With the wind behind them, the Saints led 2-0 at half time as Jonny Thomas and Jon Seeley both produced clinical finishes from inside the box that beat away keeper Sam Franklin.

But The Sports pushed hard in the second period and the home side were forced to defend resolutely before Richard Cope pulled a goal back to set up a tense finish.

However, the visitors were reduced to ten men when Nick Cope was sent off for an off the ball incident. and St Clears held on for the points, and another plus for them was the debut of youngster Jamie Thomas, who turned in a fine man of the match performance.
