Pembrokeshire football fixtures for Saturday, October 19th:

West Wales FA Intermediate Cup Round 1 (1.45pm):

Celtic Neath 2-3 Kilgetty

Being top of Division 2, hard to gauge how much emphasis Kilgetty will put on this one.

But they are unbeaten in the league and have been strengthened by new signing Richard Cope, and Robbie Beynon will want to keep up momentum against a Neath League Division 2 team. 

If they travel strong, Kilgetty can go through here.

Herbrandston 1-5 Pengelli United

Herbie have won once in Division 2 this season while Pengelli lie fifth in the Carmarthen Premier League.

Last season Sean Thomas' side did raise themselves for West Wales Cup games and need to do the same here - or it could be a long afternoon.

Senior Cup Round 2 (1:45pm):

Clarbeston Road 6-1 Johnston

That was some entrance by Keegan Summers last week, hitting a hat trick in Clarbie's West Wales Cup win over Cwmfelin Press.

Ben John also had a big hand in that win but yet again Matthew Ellis was left with a keeper headache with Dai Davies getting injured and Dan Rees again filling in as the mergency option.

He's given me stick on Twitter, so hopefully Ellis keeps him there and makes him suffer.....

Anyway, Clarbie should have way too much for a Johnston team that has struggled for players in Division 2 - fielding a bare 11 in a 6-0 loss to Hakin 2nds on Saturday. They do have boys due back this week and have plenty of players with top flight experience, but they'll do well to cause an upset here.

Fishguard Sports 5-1 Milford Athletic

It was a great win for Fishguard in the West Wales Cup against Cilfrew Rovers, courtesy of Niall Kinsella's hat trick, and he's been key to their bright start so far.

Losing Summers is a blow but their squad still looks solid, and they'll be heavily fancied here despite Athletic winning five from five so far in Division 3.

Haydn Dimond has been one of the stand out players for them and it was his late goal that sealed a 2-0 win over Carew 2nds on Saturday, and the signing of Steve 'Squashy' Allen has strengthened their defence.

They did beat Division 2 side Solva in the last round but this looks a step too far.

Hundleton 3-1 Milford United

This all Division 2 clash couldn't be more even - both have 7 points from four games.

But Billy Davis and more recently Tom Dyson have signed to add a lot to Hundleton going forward, and they notched a decent 5-2 win over Morriston Town in the West Wales Cup on Saturday.

Milford lost 3-1 in Murton Rovers and although that defeat won't worry them, they have been guilty of not converting chances in the league.

My hunch is home win here.

Narberth 2-3 Carew

The above score has already been changed twice.

I thought Carew would beat Narberth in the league two weeks ago. They lost. I thought they would lose to Goodwick on Saturday. They won.

Which goes to show when they do get it right going forward, they are hard to contain. Couldn't tell you when Goodwick last conceded four times in 20 minutes to any side.

Fraser Findlay was one to stand out with a stunning strike while Narberth have not played since that comeback win over The Rooks. But they have started well and Lloyd Hughes has inevitably added quality, and Dafydd Wright was back on the scoresheet in that mentioned win.

But whilst being unpredictable thus far, Carew's cup credentials in recent seasons are well known. This will be tough, but the latter factor leans me their way.

Pennar Robins 1-6 Merlins Bridge

Pennar did give a competitive display in losing 4-2 to Dafen Welfare Saturday, but that Senior Cup victory over Pendine remains their only win this season.

Bridge have won their last three games by scoring 24 goals in total, Joe Leahy with eight of them, and it is hard to see them being contained here.

The holders will be widely expected to go through at Bush Camp - although if nothing else that gives Chris Lloyd and co a team talk.

St Clears 5-1 Cosheston

Speaking of Bridge, St Clears were on the wrong end of one of those recent goal fests, losing 12-1 on October 5th.

The Saints have not played since so this looks the ideal fixture to get some form back against Division 3 team Cosheston.

Cosh have been going well though and were promoted under Gavin Wickland last season - and while they will battle I think St Clears with room to spare.

St Ishmaels 1-5 Goodwick United

That defeat on Saturday would have stung Goodwick, which may be bad timing for St Ishmaels.

They have not made the Senior Cup final since winning it in 2016 and will want to address that, I don't expect any tinkering or experimenting from Wayne O'Sullivan here.

Especially with Tish going well in Division 2, second in the table, with Brennan Devonald one of a host of players in good form for manager Steve Hastings.

They were hammered in Gorseinon in the West Wales Cup Saturday although perhaps minds were on the bus trip back.....

Regardless, I can't see any complacency from Goodwick.

Division 1:

Monkton Swifts 3-1 Neyland

Monkton are ticking along nicely. Maximum points in the leagues, still in two Cup competitions, and despite losing James Russell to injury both Ben Steele and Dylan Davies are scoring for fun.

A couple of weeks ago I'd have said they would win this easily but Neyland have picked up, hammering Pennar 8-1 and then Clydach Sports 7-1 on Saturday.

Jason Griffiths has found his feet with five goals in two games although the long term injury to Geraint Rees is a blow.

I think they'll test the champions, but still say a Monkton win.

Saundersfoot Sports 0-6 Hakin United

It's not getting any easier for Saundersfoot - who after this would have played Hakin, Merlins Bridge, Monkton, and Goodwick within their first five games.

They were well beaten 8-1 at Bridge on Saturday and The Vikings won't be showing mercy either. They and Monkton are the only sides left with a 100% record and Scott Davies will want it continued - especially with other sides around Hakin tied up with rthe Senior Cup.
