With many of Steve Batty's eligible players from last year taking up their well earned university places, the manager recognises that this will be a rebuilding season using exciting prospects who will be lacking experience but gaining confidence each week. Today's Welsh Premier Development league game was against a,n efficient and vastly more experienced Penybont side and despite the efforts of the Young Bluebirds to play an attractive style of football it was Penybont who proved more successful offensively scoring three goals before half time with just an Alfie Stotter goal in reply.Though our boys stuck to their tasks diligently it was the home side who took control in the second session scoring four more goals in the process. Of course, the result will be disappointing but, with a strong work ethic, patience and quality coaching, fortunes will change. We've seen this happen previously when starting the season with a young squad and without exception our youngsters have improved by leaps and bounds.
Final score: Penybont 7 Haverfordwest County 1
