Cambrian and Clydach’s Dane Williams proud despite loss
Cambrian and Clydach’s Dane Williams was proud of his side despite seeing his team defeated for the first time in seventeen games.
The club lost to Penybont 2-1 on the weekend in Welsh League Division One, as a goal in each half from Cullen Kinsella and Luke Borrelli helped move Penybont 12 points ahead of Cambrian as they maintained their unbeaten season in the race for promotion to the Welsh Premier League.
Sam Jones added a consolation when he scored a penalty to end the game 2-1 to the visitors.
Despite defeat, Williams was full of praise for his side from the Rhondda and their impressive season, which has seen them reach the Nathaniel MG Cup Final.
“I said in the changing rooms, very proud of them all season. I can’t fault them, they’ve absolutely worked their nuts for me all season.”
“Putting their bodies on the line, done everything we wanted and we’ve have fallen a bit short but that’s ok.”
“It’s all about learning and very proud of the whole group.”
With a maximum of twenty four points to play for, Cambrian’s Williams feels that the side from Bridgend have done enough to secure promotion.
“This season has definitely gone” he stated, “it’s gone. I think the club is always aiming to progress, step up and go to another level and today we learned.”
“We’ve lost but we always learn from that so we move on from there.”
“It’s frustrating but less said the better, That is our first lost since September in the league, so we restart and hoping not to lose again.”
When asked about how good is it to see other South Wales teams like Cardiff Met, Barry Town and Llanelli compete in the Welsh Prem, Williams was full of praise.
“It’s superb,” he added, “As long as South Wales football is doing well, then everyone is going to benefit from that.”
“I think the more opportunity the players in South Wales have got to play in the Welsh Premier and put on that platform then fantastic, it’s good for Welsh Football.”
