The end of the season is always one to stir emotions and not all of them are good.
While Kilgetty and St. Florence can celebrate being promoted from division three and four respectively, Narberth are having a season of despair knowing both their teams have been relegated.
The Bluebirds’ seconds string’s fate was sealed weeks ago yet it took until the last game of the season on Tuesday for the first to know where they would be playing next year.
What makes it worse is that they finished equal on points with Milford United yet went down on goal difference.
Tuesday’s result came against Monkton Swifts with the Bluebirds knowing they had to win to stay up. They could only muster a draw with Sean O’Neill and Callum O’Connell scoring for the hosts while and own goal and one from Sea Jones ensured the Swifts drew 2-2.
Narberth’s cause wasn’t helped with the news that Tenby drew 3-3 with Milford United at the Clicketts.
Had the Seasiders managed to beat the Robins then Narberth’s result would have been enough to see them stay up. That said, they will know their performances haven’t been as good as they should have been this season and as the saying goes ‘the table never lies.’
Tenby’s goals were scored by Sam Christopher, Daryl Mansbridge and Jerome Mansbridge.
In division two, Saundersfoot Sports drew 0-0 with Herbrandston.
Two divisions below in four, Pennar Robins’ thirds drew 3-3 with Angle seconds as Jason Davies, Stuart Ferrier and Ryan Eynon scored for the hosts while Marcus Blair, Craig Butland and Billy Drinkwater netted for the Robins.
Pembroke Boro had a fabulous end to their season winning 10-2 at Hubberston. The result wasn’t enough to see them go up as St. Florence just pipped them to second place but they certainly finished in style and Phil John did especially as he ended with a hattrick.
Jordan Wright also got in on the act scoring a brace with the other goals coming from Sean Edmondson, Rhys Allison, Carl Morris, Paul Sharp and William Wallace.
