Bulldogs Exit Welsh Cup

The dream of winning the FAW Welsh Cup (okay, we know that was a long shot, we can but dream) is over for another season following Ton Pentre’s exit in the Second Round at the hands of Pontardawe Town.

This was always going to be a tough match, particularly at Pontardawe’s Recreation Ground, which doesn’t lend itself to comfortable spectating.

In the first half the Bulldogs looked strong and likely to hit the back of the net but the fans had a feeling that having not made any chances count, the second half would throw up some disappointment.

Ton found themselves 2-0 down following the opening ten minutes of the second half after Pontardawe came out the changing rooms fired up and ready to give the Bulldogs a shock having struggled in the first period.

It’s such a shame to be out of the competition so early on as it would have been great to have had a go at getting past Goytre (Gwent) in Round Three before seeing the Bulldogs up against a crack Welsh Premier outfit.

That dream will have to wait until next season…again!
