Barry Town Vets Over 55s progress in the cup

Francis Dupuy

Barry Town Vets over 55s began the defence of their Wales Veterans o55s Cup title with a comfortable 4-0 win against a dogged Merthyr Tydfil at a blustery Jenner Park.

In a scrappy opening quarter, the two sides struggled with the conditions and the game lacked both energy and accuracy. Although the home side’s back four of Longman, Jones, Gibb and Staddon were tested early on, keeper John Jones was untroubled.

Gradually Barry’s midfield quartet of Brown, Welsh, Dyke and Dupuy began to impose themselves, and although the passing was still erratic, good work down the right culminated in Sanderson laying the ball back to Dupuy who continued his recent vein of form and curled a beauty passed the helpless Merthyr gloveman.

Minutes later, Staddon strode forward and reminded everyone of what he is capable of, unleashing a 30 yard screamer into the top of the net to give the home side a comfortable 2-0 lead which they maintained until the break.  

In the second half, Averies replaced Gibb for his first outing with this age group and showed immediately why he will be a major asset, snuffing out an attack then clipping a ball over the top for Bobbett, who was unable to take advantage on this occasion. Barry were not playing to their usual high standard, but they were still in complete control, and from a Brown through-ball, man-of-the-match Dupuy finished with aplomb to put the game beyond the visitors.

Minutes later substitute Marshall put the same player through for his hat-trick butwith the visiting keeper awol, Dupuy fluffed his lines. A recently reanimated Morgan entered the frey and waited 15 minutes to make an immediate impact, assisting a Dyke pile-driver into the path of Sanderson who kept up his goalscoring habit by crashing in from an inch to secure his side an emphatic 4-0 win.

This Sunday 15th December the over 50s hope to continue with their recent good form against Nelson at Jenner Park at 11am. At 4.30pm on the same day the over 60s face Newport at Ystrad Mynach.

Barry Town United vs The New Saints | JD Cymru Premier Preview

Barry Town United return to JD Cymru Premier League action tonight as league leaders The New Saints visit Jenner Park (kick-off 8pm).

Town suffered a disappointing 1-0 defeat to Newtown in the Welsh Cup last weekend, as Kieran Mills-Evans’s 87th minute goal saw The Robins progress to the fourth round at our expense. The scoreline was identical when the two teams met in the league a week earlier, meaning Barry find themselves fourth in the table going into this evening.

The New Saints meanwhile come into tonight’s fixture on the back of two emphatic results – a 9-0 win over third tier Mold Alexandra in the Welsh Cup last weekend and a 12-0 thrashing against Airbus in the Cymru Premier a fortnight ago. Scott Ruscoe’s side are unbeaten in seven league games, and currently hold a one point lead at the top of the table. Largely thanks to their victory over Airbus, they are comfortably the highest scorers in the league with 49 goals, while they have the third best defence with 16 goals conceded.

Barry defeated TNS in the first meeting of the season between the two sides back in September as Evan Press’s first goal for the club secured a memorable 1-0 victory at Park Hall. The teenager’s thunderbolt from outside the box flew past Paul Harrison in the 24th minute, while a few superb saves from George Ratcliffe and some excellent Barry defending meant we headed back to South Wales with three points for the second time in three seasons – following another 1-0 win in November 2017 thanks to Kayne McLaggon’s goal. TNS won both of their games at Jenner Park last season – 2-0 in phase one and 4-0 in phase two.

Gavin Chesterfield has no fresh injury concerns ahead of tonight’s game, but Jack Compton, Robbie Patten and Troy Greening all remain injured.

Tickets at Jenner Park this evening will cost £8 for adults, £5 for concessions and £3 for kids.

Barry Town United vs Newtown | JD Welsh Cup Preview

Barry Town United face Newtown for the second week in a row as the two teams meet in the third round of the JD Welsh Cup at Jenner Park (kick-off 2:30pm).

Ian Sheridan’s 79th minute goal gave The Robins a 1-0 victory in the league encounter last weekend, with Barry unable to find an equaliser from Mo Touray late on. It means Town will be seeking revenge in a competition that they have won six times in total, most recently in 2003. Last season, Gavin Chesterfield’s side defeated Penybont, Cefn Druids and Cambrian & Clydach to the reach the semi-finals, where they lost out to eventual cup winners The New Saints. This year marks the 65th anniversary of the club’s first Welsh Cup triumph, when they defeated Chester in the final courtesy of a replay.

Newtown meanwhile have won the trophy just twice, both occasions coming in the 19th century (1879 and 1895). Chris Hughes’s team were knocked out at this stage last season by second tier Rhyl, but did make it to the semi-finals in 2017-18. Their victory last weekend kept them eighth in the Cymru Premier League table and means they have won their last two matches at Jenner Park, but the Robins are yet to win back-to-back games at any stage so far this campaign.

Kayne McLaggon and Jonathan Hood missed last weekend’s game through illness and suspension respectively, but both will be back available for this cup tie. Jack Compton, Robbie Patten and Troy Greening all remain injured.

Looking ahead to today’s game, Gavin Chesterfield said:

“I’d love to go on another cup run this season. The Welsh Cup is a competition that I’ve never won, it’s a competition that we’ve got huge respect for and we’d love to go far again. It gave us some good memories last year.”

Tickets at Jenner Park this afternoon will cost £8 for adults, £5 for concessions and £3 for kids. The tie must be decided today – meaning we will have extra-time and penalties to find a winner if necessary.

Fredriksen hits four for Barry Town Vets Over 50s

SONY DSC

Barry Town Vets over 50s have had a mixed start to the season, albeit losing two centre halves in their last match inflamed the situation. They returned to form with a bang though, defeating a strong Swansea outfit away at Gorseinon.

Barry started with real intent – Lillygreen, Sullivan, Dupuy and Taylor snapping into tackles and moving the ball quickly through midfield and Fredriksen and captain Bobbett creating havoc in attack. This pressure soon began to bear fruit when Sullivan clipped the ball neatly over the Swans keeper to put the ‘Linnets’ into the lead. Fredriksen then took centre stage, forcing his way past the home defence and crashing home from 18 yards before completing his hat-trick in a blistering 10 minute spell.

Swansea, to their credit, fought back but found Murray, Simms, Gibb and James defiant in defence leaving keeper Harding a mere spectator.

Then followed a bizarre period, orchestrated by the official, which saw the visitors lose composure when Gibb was carried from the field of play after being crudely hacked, but not before he had been penalised! Before his replacement Brown could settle, Swansea striker Walsh hit a fine shot past the Barry gloveman to make the scoreline 4-1 at the interval. 


The second half was slightly frenetic with neither team ever in real control, the official again exacerbating the situation. Walsh grabbed his and Swansea’s second from the penalty spot but Fredriksen, unplayable in this mood, re-established Barry’s three goal cushion, before Bobbett also got himself on the score-sheet, coolly lobbing the Swansea keeper to make the score 6-2.

The game continued in its hectic manner and Swansea’s Kennedy tucked home from a clearly offside position! Nerves were finally settled when Dupuy’s fierce free-kick found the net to secure his team a comfortable 7-3 win.

This Sunday 8th December sees the o55s take on Merthyr in the cup, 11am KO at Jenner Park. The following Sunday 15th December the over 50s hope to continue their recent good form against Nelson also at Jenner Park at 11am. At 4.30pm on the same day the over 60s face Newport at Ystrad Mynach.

Barry Town United vs Newtown | JD Cymru Premier Preview

Barry Town United will be hoping to build on last week’s win over Penybont when they take on Newtown in the JD Cymru Premier at Jenner Park this afternoon (kick-off 2:30pm).

Goals from Clayton Green, Luke Cummings and Kayne McLaggon secured a 3-0 victory in the Five Mile Lane Derby, with George Ratcliffe saving a penalty to keep his clean sheet intact. The result took Town back to second in the league table, three points behind leaders Connah’s Quay Nomads.

Newtown currently sit in eighth position having been in inconsistent form of late, winning three and losing three of their last six games. Most recently they were on the end of a 3-1 defeat against Connah’s Quay, despite taking the lead away at the Deeside Stadium through Sean McAllister. Chris Hughes’s side are the joint lowest scorers in the Cymru Premier, netting just 15 goals in 15 games to date.

It was a thrilling meeting between Barry and Newtown earlier in the campaign, as Sion Spence, Keyon Reffell and Kayne McLaggon scored in a 3-2 win at Latham Park. There were also 14 goals in the four fixtures involving the two sides last season, so entertainment is expected at Jenner Park. This afternoon’s match is of course the first of our two successive games against The Robins, as we face them again in the third round of the Welsh Cup next weekend.

Luke Cooper returns from suspension today, while Jonathan Hood serves the final game of his ban. Jack Compton, Robbie Patten and Troy Greening are all injured.

Speaking this week, Gavin Chesterfield said:

“I think Newtown are a really good football team, I’ve always said that and we’ve had some really good games in the past against them – I have no doubt it will be the same over the next two weeks.

“It is slightly different when you play each other two weeks in a row at the same venue, but all we can focus on at the moment is the first game in the league, which is the most important one. It’s a tough challenge, but one we look forward to. We’ll prepare well and I think if we do things right then we’re a tough team to play against.”

Barry Town United are proud to support Stonewall’s Rainbow Laces campaign this weekend, which aims to make sport LGBT inclusive. You can find out more by clicking here.

Tickets at Jenner Park this afternoon will cost £8 for adults, £5 for concessions and £3 for kids.

Gavin Chesterfield looks ahead to a busy month of football

Gavin Chesterfield was in a positive mood following last Friday’s 3-0 win over Penybont that took Barry back to second in the Cymru Premier table.

“It was great to get back under the lights at Jenner,” he said. “I thought the boys executed the game plan really well, I still think there’s loads of room to improve, but it was just good to get back to keeping a clean sheet and scoring some goals.

“It’s been an important period for us to come through, and now we go into another run of tough games that will test us even more. But they’re the types of challenges that we look forward to.”

The victory followed a run of three successive defeats for Barry, but Chesterfield was keen to stress that he felt no need to panic despite this.

“I wouldn’t say we’d been playing terribly badly, I think there’s context to all the games we lost,” he said. “Losing three on the spin isn’t nice, but it happens, it’s sport, and it’ll no doubt happen again in the future. We learnt a lot about the players, they trained ever so well in that period and showed great character.”

Asked what he had learnt about his team in the defeats, Chesterfield said: “We know that if we’re not at our best and don’t execute game plans, then we can lose games of football. We aren’t good enough to be going through games not doing the basics well and not maintaining discipline because those things are going to cost us.

“But I have to say the boys did really well on Friday night to get the win, so if anything it’s taught us that if we keep humble and keep working hard it gives us a far better chance of winning matches.”

Next up for Barry are a pair of league and cup games against Newtown, and Chesterfield was quick to praise Chris Hughes’s side: “I think Newtown are a really good football team, I’ve always said that and we’ve had some really good games in the past against them – I have no doubt it will be the same over the next two weeks.

“It is slightly different when you play each other two weeks in a row at the same venue, but all we can focus on at the moment is the first game in the league, which is the most important one. It’s a tough challenge, but one we look forward to. We’ll prepare well and I think if we do things right then we’re a tough team to play against.”

“I’d love to go on another cup run this season, but at the moment we’re a mile away from that. We don’t want to concentrate too much on the cup game at the moment. The Welsh Cup is a competition that I’ve never won, it’s a competition that we’ve got huge respect for and we’d love to go far again. It gave us some good memories last year. But first of all we’ve got to take care of this league game.”

Town then host The New Saints live on Sgorio and travel to Aberystwyth Town, before 2019 ends with a double header against Cardiff Metropolitan University. The new year then signals the opening of the January transfer window, and Chesterfield discussed his plans for the month.

“It’s difficult to say at the moment,” he said when asked if Barry would be looking to do much business. “Obviously for most managers in this league, the planning for January starts way in advance.

“We might see the need to freshen up one or two, we might see one or two moving out on loan or permanently. I don’t envisage massive changes, but I do think a freshen up is always good for every team.

“We’ll always be active, the board are fantastic in their support for me and the staff and indeed the players, and if we feel that something can improve us, then we’ve got a duty to do that. But I maintain that I’ll only bring players in that I think can strengthen the squad and are better than what we’ve got.”

Barry Town Vets over 55s back on track

Mark Jones of the Barry Town Vets over 55s

Barry Town Vets over 55s got their season back on track with a comfortable victory over visitors Penybont last Sunday at Jenner Park, and in doing so went some way to erasing memories of their first defeat for over a year against main rivals Swansea in their last outing.

Barry, fielding a depleted squad, were more organised and motivated than the visitors and as a result were the better side for much of the game. Staddon, Jones, Gibbs and Gibbins were composed in defence, whilst Price, Welsh and particularly Dyke and Dupuy were winning the midfield battle, although in the first half neither keeper was troubled. The hosts lost former Cardiff City captain Gibbins to a shoulder injury before the break but Brown stepped in seamlessly.

In the second half the hosts were again the bigger threat, and when former Barry player White was given a straight red by the official in an otherwise competitive but clean match, they were able to stretch the opposition further. Scorio Jones took full advantage, striding forward unchallenged to the edge of the box, where he unleashed a thunderbolt into the corner of the net to give the home side a deserved lead.

Strikers Bobbett and Sanderson were finally starting to make headway and both had opportunities, but when their teammates switched off for a second at the back, it took a superb headed clearance by substitute Taylor to keep them in front. Nerves were settled minutes later when Dupuy’s fierce strike hit the roof of the net and Sanderson made the game safe with a neat header to put Barry’s title defence back in the their hands.

This Sunday 1st December at 2pm, the over 50s have a must-win game against Swansea to maintain any hope of league honours this term. The following Sunday 8th December sees the over 55s take on Merthyr in the cup, 11am KO at Jenner Park.

Luke Cummings: “I do score a few like that in training but never in a match!”

There are many ways to score your first goal for your new club, but a first time strike from 25 yards that arrows into the bottom corner isn’t usually one of them. Especially if you’re a defender. But that’s exactly what Luke Cummings did when the ball was played back to him on Friday night, giving Barry a 2-0 lead over Penybont.

“To be fair I shouldn’t have been in that position, I was playing centre half!” Cummings laughed. “But I managed to get in that position and when it got set back to me my first thought was just to hit it and thankfully it went in. I was really pleased.

“I do score a few like that in training but never in a match! Thankfully that one I caught quite sweetly and it went in”.

Clayton Green’s close range finish had put Town in front on the night before Cummings doubled the lead, while Kayne McLaggon wrapped up the 3-0 win in the 89th minute. After three consecutive defeats, it was a hugely important victory.

“It was massive that we got the win,” Cummings said. “After the three defeats we got a bit of stick. I was happy to get the goal but most importantly get the three points and return to winning ways”.

Cummings added that togetherness has been key in getting through a difficult run, as shown by the team huddles before and after every game: “The team spirit is always there. Whether we win or lose, we stick together”.

The 28-year-old was the club’s first signing of last summer when he joined from Carmarthen Town in May. He has instantly cemented his place in the side, making his competitive debut against Cliftonville in the Europa League and starting all 15 league games to date.

“It’s been brilliant so far, the club is fantastic,” Cummings said of his first six months at Jenner Park. “I think I’m in form that I haven’t hit for the last couple of seasons, so it’s been a great move for me. I’m enjoying regular football, it suits me the way we play, and to enjoy your football is massive and that’s certainly what I’m doing at the moment”.

The fixtures keep coming thick and fast, with games in both the Cymru Premier and Welsh Cup against Newtown to look forward to, before encounters with The New Saints, Aberystwyth Town and a double header against Cardiff Metropolitan University round off 2019. Looking ahead to the next few weeks, Cummings said: “This time of year is always busy, but it should be one we enjoy and to get some good results going into Christmas will be massive, especially with the cup game as well. Every year you look for a cup run and this year is no different”.

Barry Town United vs Penybont FC | JD Cymru Premier Preview

Barry Town United begin a run of four successive home games tonight as Penybont make the short trip to Jenner Park, live on Sgorio (kick-off 8pm).

The fixture was originally scheduled for Saturday 12th October but was postponed due to international call-ups. The first meeting between the two sides was the season opener back in August, when Barry came from behind to claim a 2-1 win at the KYMCO Stadium. Kane Owen’s penalty had given the hosts the lead, but an excellent Kayne McLaggon goal and Jonathan Hood’s wonder strike saw Gavin Chesterfield’s side emerge victorious.

Three months on, Penybont currently sit 11th in the JD Cymru Premier table, but have not played for a fortnight after seeing their game against Caernarfon Town last weekend also postponed for international call-ups. Their most recent match though did see them collect just a second league victory of the season, as Keenan Patten’s late goal secured a 2-1 win over Airbus.

Barry meanwhile are in the middle of a difficult run of form, with a third defeat in a row suffered at Cefn Druids last weekend. Town pushed hard for an equaliser after Charley Edge gave the hosts the lead early on, but despite twice hitting the woodwork we couldn’t find a way past the Druids defence. Nonetheless, victory in tonight’s game would see Barry return to second in the table and just three points off leaders Connah’s Quay Nomads.

Having kept a clean sheet for Wales Under-21s against Bosnia-Herzegovina on Tuesday night, George Ratcliffe returns to the squad this evening. However, the yellow card picked up by Luke Cooper against Cefn Druids means he is suspended along with Jonathan Hood. Jack Compton was forced off injured at The Rock and is sidelined. Robbie Patten and Troy Greening remain injured.

Tickets at Jenner Park this evening will cost £8 for adults, £5 for concessions and £3 for kids.

Cefn Druids vs Barry Town United | JD Cymru Premier Preview

Barry Town United will be aiming to return to winning ways this afternoon as they travel to Cefn Druids in the JD Cymru Premier (kick-off 2:30pm).

Gavin Chesterfield’s side suffered a 4-0 defeat to Connah’s Quay Nomads at Jenner Park last weekend, as two goals each from Michael Wilde and Jamie Insall gave the visitors victory. The challenge was made tougher for Barry following Jonathan Hood’s first half red card which left the team playing the final hour with ten men.

Cefn Druids meanwhile were involved in one of the two games that were postponed in the JD Cymru Premier last weekend, with The Rock overwhelmed by snow for their fixture against Cardiff Metropolitan University, making it therefore unplayable. They do however come into today’s game on the back of an impressive three straight wins against Caernarfon Town, Penybont and Carmarthen Town, scoring eight goals in the process. Half of these, including a 92nd minute winner at Penybont, have come from James Davies, who Barry will have to keep an eye out for this afternoon. Druids have climbed up the table as a result of their good form and currently sit in eighth position.

Chris Hugh’s excellent solo goal was the difference in a 1-0 victory for Barry when Druids visited Jenner Park in September. The meeting between the two sides at The Rock last season was a thoroughly entertaining one, with Barry emerging with a 5-2 win thanks to a hat-trick from Jordan Cotterill and one goal each for Kayne McLaggon and Mo Touray.

For this afternoon’s game Barry will be without George Ratcliffe who is away with the Wales Under-21s, as well as the suspended Jonathan Hood and injured midfield duo Robbie Patten and Troy Greening.

Tickets at The Rock this afternoon will cost £7 for adults, £4 for concessions and £1 for children.
