Sonic Youth beaten by 11 goals

THERE must be something in the water in Burry Port. It could be all those cockles, which are rich in iron, but whatever it is the town is producing some fine sports men and women at every level.

The under 15’s football team are no exception and on Saturday (Jan 14) they were on a roll as they travelled away to play Calsonic Youth. Burry Port started off well with Joshua Evans scoring the first goal, which put them on the front foot for the rest of the game. After only a few minutes Dafydd Morgan took a shot, which deflected off Cameron Williams into the top right corner to make it 2 – 0.

Dafydd Morgan managed to get on the score sheet himself when he broke through and fired a shot into the net for his first goal of the season. Joshua Evans claimed his 2nd goal with another lovely finish while Cameron Williams struck again with a great goal in the top corner to take the score to 5 – 0 at half time.

The visitors came out strongly in the second half and left Calsonic standing. Slick and strong passing of the ball sent Dylan Taylor in for a goal from a beautiful strike to make it number 6. Taylor was on form and he quickly set about getting his 2nd goal and Burry Port’s 7th.

Cameron Williams was not to be outdone. Taking a great ball from Daniel Mau he scored to make his hat trick and take Burry Port to an 8 – 0 lead.

By now Calsonic must have been hoping the ref would blow up but there was more misery to come for the home side. Full back Cameron Edwards managed to get on the end of a lovely cross from Cameron Williams in to the box and made it 9 – 0.

Bradley Crossman followed swiftly with a powerful header into the net to make it number 10. Tomos Harries came on as sub and within 5 minutes he had sealed the victory with a great run and a shot, which bounced in off the cross bar.

The final score was Calsonic 0 – Burry Port 11.

Speaking to The Herald after the match coach Tony Williams said: “The boys were on top form today. We were very pleased with that performance and the way each and every one of them played. You have to feel for Calsonic who did their best but we were just outstanding.”

Scarlets community clubs have been working together to help deliver vital food packages across the region.


Volunteers from grassroots clubs and WRU girls hubs across Ceredigion, Carmarthenshire and Pembrokeshire have been helping take the food packages to vulnerable members of society who are self-isolating during the Covid-19 pandemic.


The clubs have teamed up with the Scarlets Community Foundation — the charity arm of the Scarlets — and Carmarthen-based food wholesaler Castell Howell, while Scarlets players Osian Knott, Kieran Hardy, Ryan Conbeer and Jac Morgan have also lent their hand to the operation.


More than 300 packages were due to be delivered on Monday and Tuesday (April 6 & April 7), with the initiative highlighting that even without any action on the field, rugby clubs remain at the heart of their community.
Scarlets Community Foundation manager Caroline Newman said:  “We have been overwhelmed with the support that we have received from local clubs, the number of people prepared to volunteer to help the most vulnerable in our communities has been touching.


“People’s reasons for requesting packs have often been heart-wrenching and it really has made us appreciate what we have.


“The foundation has worked closely with Castell Howell to make sure the packages are ready to go to those whose need is greatest, managing to turn things around pretty quickly and I’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone involved in making this happen, our funder, Castell Howell, all the clubs, our helpline volunteer and the foundation members.
“Great teamwork which has made me proud to be part of the fantastic community that rugby creates.”

WALES’ Six Nations match at home to Scotland on Saturday has been postponed due to the coronavirus outbreak.

The two other Six Nation fixtures had already been postponed and no date has been confirmed to complete the 2020 Championship.

The Welsh Rugby Union had insisted earlier on Friday the game would “go ahead as planned”.

A WRU statement read: “The Welsh Rugby Union has maintained an open dialogue with, and continued to seek advice and direction from, the National Assembly for Wales and other stakeholders, including the Six Nations, on this fast-moving issue.

“Whilst medical advice remains consistent, we have decided that it is in the best interests of supporters, players and staff to fall in line with recent measures taken across the UK and global sports industries.

“The WRU would like to thank all parties for their counsel on the subject and will make further announcements with respect to rescheduling the fixture in the coming days.

“Every effort has been made to stage this game and we appreciate that individuals will have been inconvenienced. Given the fluid and unprecedented nature of this issue a postponement became the only viable option.”
