Pontnewynydd Reserves v Rogerstone AFC

The remaining reserve team players hosted Rogerstone AFC with their first game back at the ruffets.

Pontnewynydd spent the best part of 24 hours trying to get a replacement referee for the home fixture as the scheduled referee had fallen ill just a day before the fixture.

In stepped Harvey Phillpot in our hour of need. Harvey generously donated his referee’s purse to the Eden Gate charity in Newport.

The game kicked off and within the first few moments of the game, Ricky Bates went off with a serious injury and had to go to the A&E.

The players obviously concerned for their comrade let their heads drop and couldn’t focus on the game and within minutes went 5-0 down.

After 30 minutes the lads manage to screw their heads back on and focus on the game only conceding 2 in the final 60 minutes.

With the lack of experience for some of the younger faces and the concern for Rickie’s wellbeing as well as facing tough opposition Pontnewynydd couldn’t muster the result they deserved and for the first time, this pre-season failed to get on the score sheet.
