“This is not a winner takes all”

Created on 29/03/2011 @ 10:31


Tonight is the match that Mid Wales has been waiting for... but don’t expect Berriew boss Neil Pryce to be getting too carried away.
The rookie boss has shown the maturity of a veteran since seamlessly slipping into the hot seat after the early season departure of Russell Cadwallader, and he will be one of the coolest heads at Berriew tonight when the league leaders host Llanrhaeadr (7.30pm).
The Rhiewsiders put in one of their worst shifts under Pryce’s watch on Friday night when they drew 2-2 with Bow Street, and the boss says that billing tonight’s match as the “winner takes all” is disrespectful to other title chasers.
“This is one of five big games that we have left in the league,” he said: “Obviously drawing against Bow Street means that we have put pressure on ourselves to win this game to give ourselves a realistic chance. Saying this is a title decider is disrespectful to Llanidloes who still have a really good chance of winning this league too.

“We need to play this game with the same tempo as we finished against Bow Street and not start slowly like we did as we could well have been down three goals in first half hour.”
Apart from the injured Ed Baldwin, Pryce expects a full squad to pick from providing Ian Probert can reschedule an exam.

Four Crosses
Meanwhile on Sunday in Division Two, Four Crosses bounced back from a drubbing the week before to draw 2-2 at Bont.
Bont took the lead early on but Crosses equalized when a superb cross field ball from the impressive Ian Jones picked out Alex Gunn who used his weaker left foot to volley past the keeper.
Sion Meredith headed Bont back into the lead before Gunn turned provider for Gaz Jones to increase his season’s tally to 15. All the goals came before half time.
Town Cup
In the Llanidloes Town Cup, Llansantffraid Village beat Technogroup Welshpool on penalties after the match finished 1-1.
Amatuer League
In the Mitsubishi Division Two, Dyffryn Banw picked up a useful win when Gerallt Jones and Josh Davies scored in their 2-0 win over Kerry Reserves.
