Rhayader Town FC - 2

Abergavenny Town FC - 4

THE Town travelled to mid-Wales League side, Rhayader Town for their opening pre-season game, and took the opportunity to introduce some of their younger players to first team football. Included in their starting line-up was highly rated right back, Josh Edwards, whilst also making an appearance were Elliot Symonds, Ethan Attwood, Cole Comperat, Will Clayton, and Ethan Heckles.

Town took the lead through Curtis Methven, and Sean Feeley increased their lead from the penalty spot, before Elliot Symonds added a third with a sublime chip as Town raced to a 0-3 interval lead.

In the second-half, the hosts pulled back two goals but a solo effort from Town’s Rhys Tandy saw them victorious, completing a very satisfactory run-out in preparation for their league campaign which kicks off on August 10 at home to AFC Llwydcoed.
