Y Pant v Hawthorn

It was the first game on the new 3G for the Y Pant’s year 7 football team and a chance to progress further into the RCT Cup.

The conditions were perfect for Y-Pant’s quick passing game, with lots of rain making the ball slip along the surface quickly.  

Y Pant started very quickly with Chris finishing off a through ball from Iestyn P.  and then grabbing another minutes later. The back four for Y Pant looked calm on the ball and dealt with Hawthorn’s attempts to counter attack. When one of these attacks finally broke through Owen Jones, who had little to do all game made a superb one on one stop.  Lewis C grabbed the 3rd before Matthew Tozer bulldozed his way through Hawthorn defence, with a few step overs before calmly rounding the keeper and slotting the ball away. The final goal was added by Chris S, who’d just come back on the field. A brilliant corner swung in was met by a fantastic header that looped into the left corner. That was a hat-rick for Chirs and 5-0 to Y Pant.

A solid back four, hard working midfield and dynamic front two made calling Man of the match a very tough decision, as all members of the squad played a key part in the victory. However MOTM goes to Iestyn Phillips for a very mature performance in midfield. Not only going forward and playing key through balls but in tracking back and helping the back four to ensure we kept our clean sheet.

Overall then a pleasing first game from the team, the work ethic and determination to win suggests a promising future ahead. Congratulations Year 7.



The Dream is Over for Another Year


Y Pant, the Mid Glamorgan champions were defeated by the reigning Welsh champions Glantaf, in a 2-0 defeat at Cardiff Metropolitan University pitch.

In a closely fought contest, the teams were even going into the half time interval. With ten minutes remaining of the second half, Glantaf broke the deadlock with a hotly disputed goal. As Y Pant searched for the equaliser, a set piece from Glantaf broke the hearts of galliant losers.

Well done to the squad of players who reached the last sixteen of the Welsh cup for the second successive season.

Man of the match for Y Pant was Dafydd Price.
