PENLAN beat Kilvey Fords 2-0 in division one of the Pic-Up Spares Swansea Senior League.

Dale Hulland in the Penlan goal had to be at his best throughout to deny Kilvey with some superb saves, but overall the champions deserved their victory.

Luke Morgan produced a man-of-the match display and went closest to breaking the deadlock when he beat four defenders and forced Collins in the Kilvey goal into his best save of the match when he tipped a fierce drive around the post.

With Penlan looking the more likely to win the match, the deadlock was finally broken on 80 minutes when Damien Owen drove a left-foot drive into the top corner of the net.

Penlan were looking to double their advantage and duly did so in the last minute when Karl Mucha chested the ball down and smashed the ball into the net past Collins to seal victory against his former team-mates.

Penlan Club : D. Hulland, R. Connachie, J. Price, M. Yates, J. Davies, K. Mucha, J. James, G. Morrell, L. Morgan, A. Carroll, D. Owen. Subs: J. Day, P. Lewis, K. Crabb.

Kilvey Fords : M. Collins, K. James, A. Johns, S. Davey, L. Otten, J. Harper, D. Lambrick, A. Lorey, A. Lewis, A. Bonomi, C. Hellier. Subs: M. Tyrell, J. Vickers, J. Griffiths.

Swansea Dockers edged out Cwmfelin Press 4-3 in a thriller.

Dockers stormed into a 3-0 first-half lead thanks to Cameron Webb's well-taken goal after ten minutes following a good interchange of passes.

Kyle Morgan made it 2-0 from close range as the hosts threatened to run a riot in a first half where Press were putting in one of their poorest performance of the season so far.

Raymond Alli reacted quickest in a goalmouth scramble to make it 3-0.

Dockers made it 4-0 on the hour against the run of play when Morgan grabbed his second of the match.

Press gave a better account of themselves and pulled it back to 4-1 when Paul Lewis scored.

An Ashleigh Dennis penalty made it 4-2 as a resurgent Press now threatened to take at least a point from a match where they had looked dead and buried.

And when Dean Walsh made it 4-3 with an excellent left-foot strike from the edge of the penalty area, the comeback then looked on.

But Dockers held and maintained their title credentials.

Swansea Dockers : B. Sparkes, C. Robb, A. Watkins, P. Russell, D. Boat, K. Morgan, M. Smith, D. Ashford, C. Webb, L. Dalling, R. Alli. Subs: D. Majes.

Cwmfelin Press : M. Thompson, A. Kift, D. Walsh, R. Morgan, R. Clark, L. Lynch, R. Brown, L. McManus, P. Lewis, M. Tregembo, A. Dennis. Subs: J. Gill, S. Frayne, N. Morton.

South Gower won their first league match of the season thanks to a 4-1 win over CRC Rangers.

Despite being pegged to 1-1 at the break, they won thanks to two goals each from Will James and Andrew Ferguson.
