SEVEN SISTERS booked their place in the final of the West Wales Cup as they came from behind to beat Hakin United on Saturday (Apr 9).

The game was played at Richmond Park in Carmarthen and there was a good number of supporters for both teams.

After a tentative opening Hakin took the lead shortly before the break but Seven Sisters hit back with two goals inside ten second half minutes to book their place in the final against Carmarthenshire Premier Division winners Trostre.

It was Ben Aldred who gave the Pembrokeshire side the lead in the 39th minute as he curled the ball into the net from the edge of the box.

The West Wales Premier League side knew they would need to start the second half well to start a comeback but they very nearly found themselves 2-0 down.

Only 30 seconds in, Hakin’s Justin Harding saw a shot tipped away by the Seven Sisters keeper.

Three minutes later though they were back in the game. Jonathan Douglas crossed from the right and Adam Campbell saw his header saved but he reacted quickest to poke the rebound in to level the game.

Seven Sisters were then given a free kick on the edge of the box after a handball by Hakin’s Mark Jones but Steffan Jenkins sent his effort over the bar.

With just under an hour gone Aldred brought down Campbell in the box and the referee pointed to the spot.

Jenkins kept his nerve and sent the keeper the wrong way to put his side ahead and spark wild celebrations amongst the players.

Hakin looked for a way back into the game but were unable to find an equalising goal.

With nine minutes to go, Jake Merry was sent off, all but ending Hakin’s chances of victory.

Seven Sisters saw the game out and will now look forward to their final with Trostre.
