HARDY MAKES GOALSCORING RETURN FROM INJURY

Ton Pentre Youth 1-5 Taffs Well Youth | Welsh League Youth Division East | Sunday, 10 May 2015 | Ynys Park

Josh Hardy came off the bench in the match against Taffs Well at Ynys Park to make his first and last appearance for Ton Pentre Youth. 

Hardy broke his leg in a pre-season friendly match against Penybont in August 2014 and has been forced to watch from the sidelines whilst recovering, until this Ivy Court Welsh League Youth Division East fixture, the last of the season.

The defender is now too old to play Youth football next season but was elated to get five minutes at the end of the match and score with his first competitive touch of the season. When a 90th minute free kick was sent into the box, Hardy connected with an outstretched leg to put the ball over the line for Ton Pentre’s consolation goal.

Taffs Well showed their class in this match and the young Wellmen won the league title with this 5-1 victory.

Taffs Well took the lead in the 11th minute when a cross from the left was headed into the net over Liam Williams, who could do little about it.

Calum Emms came close to equalising during the 31st minute when he connected well with the ball but his effort skimmed the top left hand corner of the goal.

The Wellmen secured the league title with an excellent attacking display during the second half and eventually took a 5-0 lead with goals in the 53rd, 66th, 73rd and 82nd minutes, before Hardy prevented them from achieving a clean sheet.

At the full-time whistle the Bulldogs players formed a guard of honour in recognition of Taffs Well’s achievement.
