Pembrokeshire football fixtures for Saturday, September 28:

Senior Cup Round 1 (1:45pm):

Fishguard Sports 6-0 Broad Haven

Despite injury problems, Fishguard are going well in Division 1. Six points from nine, and I don't see them returning to the second tier anytime soon.

On the contrary, Broad Haven have had a nightmare start having played three, lost three, and conceded 19 goals in Division 2.

I don't see an upset.

Herbrandston 2-3 St Ishmaels

One of the more interesting ties.

Herbie bounced back from a poor start in the league by winning 3-1 at Johnston on Saturday, while Tish went the other way, losing to Lawrenny after two straight wins.

Prior to that though they'd scored 13 times so that early season firepower sees them start slight favourites. 

Should be close though.

Johnston 5-1 Angle

Red cards have plagued Johnston's start, namely the three they picked up on the opening day.

With Angle being newly reformed and in Division 5 it's very difficult to know what they'll bring, but The Tigers should be looking at this as a chance to get their season up and running.

Kilgetty 3-1 Lawrenny

An all Division 2 clash and thus far Kilgetty are flying with wins over Johnston, Milford United, and most recently Hakin 2nds.

Goals from Josh Bevan, Tom Mansbridge, and Jordan Gorman gave them a 3-1 win over the latter - while an Owen James double helped Lawrenny to their first win of the season at Tish.

Money has to be on the leaders here.

Milford United 2-1 Saundersfoot Sports

This is a banana skin for Saundersfoot.

They've lost their first three league games, have injury problems, and go to a Milford side who have won both their home games so far.

The Senior Cup is unlikely to be the priority of the visitors this season and if they're off the boil, they could trip up at Marble Hall.

Narberth 8-1 St Florence

Chris Brown's goal gave Narberth a point against St Clears on Saturday, and four points in three games represents a solid start for them.

St Florence have the same return in Division 4, and Jake Webster's brace on the weekend meant they also earned a point at home to Camrose 2nds.

But if Narberth are full strength, a three division gap should be way too much to breach.

Neyland 2-4 Monkton Swifts

Monkton's strong start to their title defence continued with their win at Saundersfoot on Saturday, and they seem to have retained the attacking flair which took them to the title in 2018/19.

They'll want a strong Senior Cup challenge too mind, and will be confident against a Neyland team with no points from three games after losing to Fishguard Saturday.

Given the occasion I do expect the Nomads to up their game here, but would be surprised if the Swifts didn't progress.  

Pembroke Boro 3-4 Cosheston        

A local derby, and a Division 3 derby.

Cosheston have made marginally the better league start with four points from three games, but the Boro got off the mark Saturday as Jake Campbell's hat trick helped them beat Goodwick 2nds.

They've conceded 17 goals so far though - so I'll go for the visitors to win a high scoring one.

Division 1 (2pm):       

Goodwick United 3-1 Clarbeston Road

Clarbie banged 14 past Letterston in the cup last week, though may not be quite as easy at Phoenix Park.

Goodwick made their first real statement with that win cup win over Hakin, and Wayne O'Sullivan won't want his side to lapse now as they aim for a third straight league win.

Clarbie will test the home defence, but keeping them out at the other end could be the problem.

Hakin United 2-1 Carew

Perhaps the game of the day.

Hakin have a had big, but mixed two weeks. They beat Bridge but then that Senior Cup defeat at Goodwick leaves them already aiming for just two trophies.

Carew have started quietly but effectively, and striker Sam Christopher has again looked in good nick with a hat trick against former team Tenby on Saturday.

Defensively they are yet to concede a goal as well, although that record will do well to stand up at The Obs.

Both can challenge for the title, both could get the points here. Hakin's home win over Bridge leans me towards them, but without any real conviction.

Merlins Bridge 4-1 Pennar Robins        

Bridge had their expected big win at Camrose on Saturday, but now need to bounce back in the league after that defeat to Hakin two weeks ago.

After two defeats Pennar boosted morale with a 10-0 cup win over Pendine, Connor Roberts and Josh Dearsley getting hat tricks, but I think the Wizards here with room to spare.
