It was a relatively quiet weekend for SW Alliances’ Vale based clubs on Saturday.

With the first round of the SWFA Senior Cup taking place many of the referees were involved which left the SW Alliance League with only a sufficient number of referees to play the Premier and Championship games.

In the Premier Division Dinas Powys struggled again.

In July they lost to Llanrumney United in the QR1 of the Welsh Cup on penalties, but six weeks later, after 0-0 at halftime, they succumbed in the second half and lost six-nil.

In the Championship, Sully Sports lost their unbeaten record to Aberdare Town going down 3-2 after taking the lead through Luke Boyle in the 18th minute, but Aberdare Town came back to score three.

Despite a second half rally by Sully and a late Conner McInery goal in the 82nd minute they just couldn’t find the equaliser.

At White Tips, Treforest Ely Rangers went down 3-1 despite leading one-nil at halftime through a Richard Greaves 35-minute opener.

In Corntown Vale United were held to a 0-0 draw by Aberfan.

There is a shortage of referees in Wales and now is a great opportunity to start refereeing. Courses are now all on-line. If anyone is interested go to
