Milford United knock Broad Haven out of Second Division Cup

MILFORD United progressed to the next round of the Second Division Cup on Saturday (Feb 26) as they beat Broad Haven 3-0 at Marble Hall.

Broad Haven have enjoyed this competition in recent years claiming a hat trick of cup wins between 2016 and 2018.

However, it was Milford who progressed on this occasion but they did not have it all their own way.

The first half ended goalless and it wasn’t until the 62nd minute that the first goal of the game came.

Liam Picton grabbed the goal but they did not make the win safe until ten minutes from time.

Liam Parr was sent clean through but was tripped in the area and the referee pointed to the spot. Parr picked himself up and sent the keeper the wrong way to double Milford’s lead.

As the game entered its final minutes, Broad Haven looked to get themselves back in it but it was Milford who added a third with Parks grabbing his second of the game.

The win for Milford sets up a quarter final tie away at Solva.

Before then the sides return to Division 2 action as Broad Haven travel to Merlins Bridge seconds while Milford United host Herbrandston.
