Welsh Veterans Football League (Over 40s):

Nelson Cavaliers Over 40s 1-3 Hakin United Over 40s

GOALS from Michael McCarthy, Nigel Delaney, and Paul 'Jonah' Jones ensured Hakin United Over 40s got their Welsh Veterans League Campaign off to a winning start away to Nelson Cavaliers this afternoon.

Trailing 1-0 early on, The Vikings levelled before the break when McCarthy cut in from the right hand side, and cracked a shot home from 20 yards out.

The visitors then missed a great chance to lead midway through the second half when Nigel Delaney had a penalty saved - but the same player made amends five minutes from time, as his cross into the area from a wide free kick evaded everyone and nestled into the far corner of the net.

And then in the final minute, Hakin sealed the points when Jones latched onto a ball forward from Gary Dawes, and duly rounded the keeper to make it 3-1.

Hakin United Over 40s squad: Jason Morgan, Nigel Armstrong (captain), Adam Collins, Stuart MacDonald, Gerrard Grey, Richard Bland, Nigel Delaney, Anthony Aldred, Gary Dawes, Richard Nash, Robert Davies, Leighton Edwards, Paul Jones, Matthew Price, Michael McCarthy, Michael Beavis.
