Jordan Davies lobbed over a few seconds into the second half, then Arnison did the same after good work from Niall Flint. Lewis then sent a volley wide, and more promising crosses came from Phillips and Jonathan Evans, with Aber passing the ball around nicely and looking good for an equaliser. Sam Litchfield and Louis Bradford were looking strong at the back when Haverfordwest counter attacked, and Webb punched clear a cross from Wilson.
The Seasiders currently sit 7 points behind 6th placed Penybont, but have games in hand over Newtown and with 7 games still to play before the league splits, Anthony Williams’ men are still in the hunt for a place in the Championship Conference come mid-January. The quest for that all-important top 6 place continues tomorrow evening. Neil Gibson’s Nomads will provide stern opposition, having gone 9 games unbeaten since mid-September, winning 8 of those. Their last defeat came at Park Avenue in the reverse fixture, when Aber Captain Jack Thorn netted an 82nd minute winner after Harry Arnison had opened the scoring early in the 2nd half and former Seasider Paulo Mendes had equalised. Connahs Quay have also qualified for the final of the Nathaniel MG Cup, where they will face Bala Town as they look to retain the trophy, having beaten Cardiff Met on penalties to win last season’s competition. The Nomads top goalscorer this season is Mike Wilde, with the veteran goalscorer having netted 7 times since his return to Deeside following a season away at neighbours Flint Town United.

Performance wise last night was a huge improvement for Anthony Williams’ side who defended really well for long periods, and got well up the pitch on the counter. They did perhaps struggle slightly to create really obvious goalscoring opportunities, but had enough attempts to keep the game in the balance right until the nineteeth minute, before Wilde’s late intervention.
Charley Edge, then Louis Bradford both cleared George Horan efforts off the line in the same attack to keep Aber in it, then Edge then crossed at the other end for Bradford to send a goal bound header into Andy Firth’s hands for a first real shot across the bows. Jack Rimmer had a long range attempt saved by Firth, before Franklin was carried off with an unfortunate hamstring injury. Webb came out well to nullify a home attack, then gathered a free kick confidently, before John Owen pulled off a classic Cruyff turn down the left to leave Holmes floundering, only to be denied a cross by the assistant referee’s flag.
Josh Williams saw a dangerous corner cleared, then Webb denied sub Mike Hayes a goal on the line, but then an Aber breakaway saw Sam Phillips just unable to connect with a through ball, and the visitors were definitely still in the game. Hayes burst through but saw his shot pushed around the post for a corner by Webb, with Town defending well and threatening on the break. Jamie Jones came on to bolster the right back position and Hayes lobbed a ball over with ten minutes to go. Holmes denied Phillips another clear chance, and the Ryan Harrington sent in an audacious effort from the right wing which Webb collected calmly. Then with the game on a knife edge Wilde headed home from a right wing cross to confirm the points for Nomads, and repeated the trick from a similar move three minutes later to give the scoreline a harsh outlook from an Aber perspective.
And people were paying to come and watch. It was really quite exciting and something we hadn't experienced. ” The 2011 team were under the management of Ray Hughes, still part of the coaching set-up at Park Avenue Ffiona Evans was part of the 2011 Cup Semi-Final teamThe 2011 team were under the management of Ray Hughes, still part of the coaching set-up at Park Avenue. “It'll be really nice to give something back to Ray, ” says Evans. “He's been at the club 20-plus years, from day dot.
If we get to a cup final, we can give him a thank you for all the hard work he's done. ”And now Thomas has the captain's armband and is looking forward to leading her side out on such an important occasion. “We're very aware that fourth place in the league is still a possibility but we are very aware also that it is a massive ask of us now after some disappointing results this season, ” she says. “To have a good cup run is a bit of positivity and is keeping the girls motivated.

Alex Darlington came on to try and unlock the County defence and had a shot blocked after some trickery almost immediately. Jack Thorn then picked out Darlington at the back post, and his low shot somehow contrived to stay out by rebounding off Lee Idzi for an agonising let off for County. Lewis had a chip into the box caught by Idzi, as Aber pressed again, but the hosts were threatening too as sub Elliott Dugan again tested Webb’s hands in a break through. Then with just five minutes to go and the game hanging in the balance, Jordan Davies found space down the right wing to cross for Fawcett to tap home a third, and the contest was settled.
