Guilsfield came away with all three points in a match played in atrocious conditions, with rain and wind lashing the pitch for the duration of the match. Guilsfield welcomed Sam Litchfield, Stuart Rogers and Steve Blenkinsop back to the squad but had to travel without Robbie James. So, for the umpteenth time this season, the back four had to be re-vamped.
Guilsfield won this game in the second half with a fine performance, playing some great stuff on the deck. Youngsters James Parry and Aaron Lloyd continue to impress in senior football but were ably assisted by a squad putting in an unbeaten run in 2019.
The goals came from Jake Cook (2), Jack Richards and Steve Blenkinsop. Blenks came off the bench to play his first game in 2019, following an injury sustained at Bangor in December.
Team: Jones, Bromley, Parry, Lloyd, Litchfield, Ford, Clifton, Cathrall, Cook, Jenkins, Richards. Subs: Rogers (Clifton), Blenkinsop (Parry), Leonard.
Meanwhile, the Reserves suffered their first loss of the season at Penparcau , in the Quarter Final of the Emrys Morgan Cup. The lads held the lead twice in the first half through goals by Danny Barton and Graeme McGill but suffered after keeper Lee Andrew was carried off after sustaining a nasty knee injury while attempting to stop an equalising goal for the hosts. The match proved to be a bruising encounter with many flashpoints.
Lee was taken to hospital during the match, and our thanks go to Steve, from Penparcau FC, for his assistance.
The Reserves move on now top concentrate on the league , with the Amateur League Cup and Village Cup also to play for.
