Swansea Legends win Charity match

THEY’VE still got it; the Swansea legends beat the Carmarthenshire locals 8-2 at Richmond Park on Saturday (May 26) in a game in which both teams battled from start to finish.

The score line didn’t reflect the fact the locals gave the Swans an almighty scare. Dwaine Cassell had put the visitors ahead with a 25 yard strike only for the Swans to level through Adrian Forbes.

Andy Mumford then put the Swans ahead with goals from Steve Jones and Tudor Jones sandwiched between Simon Gilmour’s goal.

Forbes and Tudor Jones would then complete their hat-trick’s in the second half. The locals also has some debatable refereeing decisions go against them when Striker Gareth Winston seemed to be fouled by both Tudor Jones and Jamie Fleig in the box which no penalty was given and also an offside decision where it seemed Winston was on side when he rounded the goal keeper.

But overall the game was won for the charity. Lee Trundle and Mark Clode both managed the Swans to a win.

Co-Organiser Gareth Winston said: “The night before several key players from both sides pulled out, so I was quite on edge to see who would play and who couldn’t. Dean Burton, Lee Trundle, Michael Howard, John Cornforth all had injuries, with Andy Robinson, Matthew Bound and some of local lads which included last years’ star player Jo Pulman not being able to make it.”

“Striker John Williams later said: “These events really make us as players want to come together and be a part of. A lot of the lads we don’t see often and it’s always nice to meet up. We all really enjoyed the game and it’s nice to meet fans and supporters who remember what we did several years back- I can’t wait for the next one.”
