Bridgend Street have swooped to complete a fantastic double aquisition for Welsh Premiership players Paul Fowler and Jeff White. Our former midfield player Fowler, 31, rejoins us from Port Talbot Town after a highly decorated 10 years in the Premier and 30 year old striker White rejoins the Street from Carmarthen Town after also having spells at Llanelli, Port Talbot and Newtown. Both players will be massive assets with the congested fixture list ahead and will need no introduction to the squad and supporters.
The first team returned to winning ways after last Saturday's disappointing performance at Llantwit Major by overcoming the challenge of Cardiff Corries at Willows. Two second half goals did the trick in a game that Street dominated but failed to convert the majority of chances they conjured up. Central defender Ross Dingle put us ahead on 53 minutes before striker Nicky "Cheggars" Davison put the game to bed on 83 minutes.
Meanwhile the reserve team chalked up another impressive display at Abergavenny Town with a 3-0 win. A 27th minute strike from Isaac Kahar pout us ahead at the break, followed by another Kahar goal on 63 minutes. Harry Burge rounded off the scoring in the 87th minute to cap an excellent day for the club.
The Youth team returned from Pontcanna with a point after a scrappy 1-1 draw with FC Dragons on Sunday afternoon. Just like the first encounter between the teams this was a very physical encounter but wasn't helped either by a typically poor council managed pitch. On target for the Street was Callum Tayor from the penalty spot. It was the boys 10th point accumulated out of the last four games and they maintain their challenge for a high end of table finish.
Street this week completed the signing of goalkeeper Nicky King from Chepstow Town. King, a former Street Player of the Year joins us for the third time and links up with the squad to replace long term injury victim Damien Lack.
