Cardiff Accies 45's Report;

"good competitive match played played in a good spirit. Both teams coping well with the wind and the torrential downpour of sleet at one stage."

Chew Magna 45's Report:

" Both teams battled against the high winds, and sleet showers to try and play football. Cardiff had the best of the first half and took a one nil lead with a well taken headed goal. Chew were unlucky not to equalise when Bartlett’s fine long-range shot cannoned off the crossbar. Chew battled back into the game in the second half and threw everything against the Cardiff in search of an equaliser. Cardiff defended furiously, and it was mostly one-way traffic with the Accies lying deep and trying to catch Chew on the break. In the final minutes Randall was denied by a great save from the Cardiff keeper and then Cornelius by a great block by the defender. The game then finally turned in the last minute. Keen the Chew striker was brought down a good two yards inside the box. The referee then somehow decided that the infringement was just outside the area and gave a free kick instead of the penalty which Chew were unable to score from. The Cardiff keeper had been outstanding throughout the game and might well of saved a penalty, or Chew may have scored, but either way it would have been a fitting end to a hard-fought match. Instead that final decision by the ref is what will be remembered. "
