LEAGUE UNITES IN SUPPORT OF EDWARDS
Before the season had really got started the teams came together to remember Levi Edwards of Plough Colts. Edwards tragically passed away just weeks into the campaign but the support and praise for the young man from the footballing community has been commendable.
After some cup runs last time out Plough Colts were many peoples favourites to be champions this season but the circumstances mean Plough have not played since and haven’t been able to build on their good start, taking 4 points out of their first 6. After a disappointing opening day draw with Landore Colts went on to secure a 3-1 victory away to Treboeth United.
Murton Rovers have instead taken the baton and sit at the top of the league unbeaten with two wins and two draws in their four games, scoring 12 goals in the process. Both wins finished with Rovers scoring four goals, and a goalless draw at home to North End was shown up by a 4-4 draw away to Blaenymaes.
They are closely followed by CRC Olympic, a team made up from CRC Rangers and Morriston Olympic, who only trail Rovers by a point with a game in hand and making them the second of the three unbeaten teams in the league, the third being Plough who have only played 2 games. A 3-3 draw with North End on the opening day has been their only blip so far, winning their remaining games 4-1 and 4-2.
Third in the league sit South Gower although they have stumbled lately losing 7-3 at home to Treboeth United after back to back wins in a run that saw them scoring 11 against Landore and beating fourth placed Ragged School by one goal.
Cwmfelin Press and Blaenymaes make up two of the four teams on 4 points in the league, along with Plough and Ragged school. Both teams have won one, lost one and drawn one, with Cwmfelin ahead on goal difference. Both these teams were promoted last season and will be pleased with their respective starts to the season.
TreboethTreboethTreboeth had come down from Division 1 and were expected to more than hold their own at this level. They struggled in their first two games losing both of them and conceding 7 goals in the process. The recent 7-3 victory over South Gower though should hopefully see them grow in confidence now and we can expect them to start climbing up the table.
Gors, one of the 5 teams to come up from Division 3 have had a mixed start winning one and losing one of their opening two matches. They lost 5-0 to Ragged School in their opening fixture but beat bottom club Landore 1-0 last time out.
North End were another of the promoted teams and had a big recruitment drive in the summer signing numerous new players. They have struggled so far this season picking up only two out of a possible 9 points including a heavy defeat away to Cwmfelin Press.
Landore were another team to gain promotion to the division but despite a good opening day win at Plough, they have really struggled to duplicate their form from last season. Since then they have lost the next three games conceding 16 goals
