Talgarth Town stay top with comfortable victory

By Brecon and Radnor Reporter in Football

Talgarth Town maintained their two point lead at the top of the Watson Financial Mid Wales league (South) with a 3-0 win at St Harmon. Playing their first game in a month, Talgarth took the lead when Conor O’Shea was brought down but the referee played a good advantage with Harry Sharman going on to score. St Harmon felt they competed well in the first half but went further behind with Jordan Harvey on target after combining with Sharman. Substitutes Ceri Jones and Scott Pavey linked to seal the win with Jones netting from Pavey’s cut back.

Talgarth face a huge game this week-end when they host second placed Llanidloes Town Reserves who themselves ran out 3-0 winners against Newcastle. It was mid way through the second half before Ashley Harris broke the deadlock for The Daffs who added late goals through Rhys Evans and Callum Jones.

Brecon Northcote are level on points with Llanidloes and got their challenge back on track with a 1-0 home success over Llandrindod Wells Reserves. Joel Evans was again Northcote’s main man bagging his 25th league goal of the term in the second half.

Knighton Town Reserves might be in seventh spot in the table but are well in with a chance of honours. But The Robins dropped vital points for the second week in a row after being held 2-2 at home by Rhayader Town Reserves. The returning Mark Davies gave Rhayader an interval lead with a free-kick but Knighton turned it around with goals from Connor Bird and Billy Hyett. Rhayader, who welcomed back Jordan McFadden after fifteen months out with a broken leg, were however not to be denied and Dan Goodman grabbed an equaliser.
