On Saturday 31st October, the Nomads entertained Tenby in the First Division of the Pembrokeshire League. The home side took little time in settling into the game and playing so,e good passing football. After just 10 minutes an accurate cross from Skinny Harding found Wayne Parry on the far side of the opponents goal and he headed home with pin-point accuracy. Within another 10 minutes the Nomads took a two goal lead when Harding struck from close range. Toward the end of the first half, Gary Power went on a weaving run, passing several Tenby players, and struck the ball low into the right hand corner of the net. However before the break came there was a determined run by Tenby’s Sam Christopher which resulted in him striking home to reduce the deficit. So the home side went into the interval with a 3 – 1 goal margin.
The initial impetus at the start of the second half by the home side was thwarted by Tenby and there appeared to be a ‘turning of the tide’ when the visitors launched a couple of positive moves. Neyland pulled things back in their favour when Wayne Vaughan-Parry struck his second goal of the game. However the dominance of the first half did not really materialise and a couple of defensive errors allowed Tenby to score their second goal to give a final tally of 4 – 2 to the Nomads.
