4:09pm

4:03pm

Daryl Mansbridge surges to the edge of the area and is taken down by Paul Thomas. After some deliberation, Boswell awards the penalty. Vaughan goes to Woodhouse's left, the keeper gets a hand to it but it sqiurms under him and into the net.

Second half is underway.....

3:32pm

Doesn't look like either side have made any changes.

3:32pm

Both teams back out for the second half.....

3:27pm

Must be said, referee Dean Boswell has done brilliantly so far. No cards dished out yet and has officiated with a lot of common sense.

3:25pm

When the Wizards have attacked, they have done so with pace but they will want to get Stephen McNabney into the game more in the second half. The striker is yet to have a sight of goal.

3:21pm

So no goals so far at the Meadow. Tenby have done more of the pressing, and should be ahead after Vaughan's miss.

3:19pm

3:16pm

Just a couple of minutes from half time now.....still 0-0.

3:09pm

Tenby go close again, Daryl Manbridge's cross is met by Sam Christopher....but Bridge keeper Woodhouse holds comfortably.

3:06pm

Vaughan is limping heavily from that challenge from Sable. D'Ivry meanwhile, seems to have recovered from his early knock for Bridge.

3:05pm

Into the wall and Bridge clear. Jerome Mansbridge gets a warning from ref Dean Boswell for catching D'Ivry late as he cleared.

3:04pm

3:03pm

Daryl Mansbridge then drags a 20 yard shot wide. Tenby beginning to press....

3:02pm

What a chance for Tenby! Paul Thomas' weak clearance was intercepted by Jerome Mansbridge, who plays in Vaughan.....but the striker hesitated in front of goal before slicing wide.

3:01pm

Billy Vaughan cracks an effort from 25 yards but it flies just past the post. Bridge hearts in mouths for a moment there....

3:00pm

2:59pm

At the other end, Sam Christopher turns Peter Thomas on the edge of the area, but opts to cross when he could maybe have shot there.

2:59pm

D'Ivry and Bryce combine well to set up McNabney, but he is tackled before he can shoot by Curtis Hurlow.

2:47pm

Apologies for delay there....temporarily let down by the Meadow wifi!

2:46pm

Bridge free kick here, chance for Peter Thomas to get the ball into the area...

2:39pm

First moment of danger from Tenby as Matthew D'Ivry clears away Billy Vaughan's through ball. Cattlin then heads Vaughan's subsequent corner well wide.

2:38pm

Both teams still settling here. Little in the way of goal mouth action after five minutes though.

2:37pm

Tenby also have one change from their semi final starting line up. Callum Proctor starts in place of Ashley Andrews. Jake Proctor drops out of the squad.

2:35pm

So Bridge start with one change from their semi final line up, with Daniel Bryce in for Nathan Greene. Looks like they are going with five in midfield and McNabney alone up front.

2:32pm

We are underway here at the Meadow....

2:32pm

Tenby: Dafydd Jones, Curtis Hurlow, Sonny Phillips, Alex Harley, Phil Cattlin, Callum Proctor, Daryl Mansbridge, Richard Perry, Sam Christopher, Billy Vaughan, Jerome Mansbridge. Subs: Ashley Andrews, Toby Rossiter, Jordan Richards.

2:28pm

Team news coming shortly.....

2:09pm

The two sides last met back in August on the opening night of the Division One season. They drew 2-2 at the Clicketts, with Scott Ferney and Daryl Mansbridge on target for the Seasiders. Stepehn McNabney struck twice for the Bridge.

1:58pm

Referee in his first final today is Dean Boswell, with assistants Kevin Bowen and Tom Bevan. Sean O'Connor is the fourth official.

1:56pm

Both teams now out warming up and the crowd is beginning to build. The majority have tipped Tenby today, but I think it's going to be a very, very tight one.

1:40pm

And a reminder of how Bridge reached their 13th final, beating Johnston in a dramatic penalty shoot out.... http://www.westerntelegraph.co.uk/sport/11092882.Bridge_spot_on_as_they_reach_Senior_Cup_final/
