Penarth’s 1st XI welcomed Bristol Firebrands on Gameweek 5 of the West Premier on Saturday 30th October. Missing some regular starters, the Bears got off to a poor start and were quickly behind thanks to some impressive goals by the visitors. It was the first time the Bears had been down at half time all season, and at 5-0, it became a case of limiting the damage in the second half. Through hard work and more composure, Penarth held their opponents to just one goal after the break and managed to find one of their own with Harry Davies calmly slotting home when found in the circle. The 1st XI hope to return to full strength next week and avenge this 6-1 defeat as they welcome Cardiff & Met A to Stanwell School.
