In a sport where records are broken weekly, there’s an impressive one being made at The Bont Playing Fields this season.
Penydarren of the South Wales Alliance is going strong with an incredible SEVENTEEN wins out of SEVENTEEN games this season.
Their winning run has meant they’ve played just a total of six leagues fixtures this season, winning each game.
One team that is part of the record is STM Sports who have suffered defeat to a side two divisions below them in both the FAW Trophy and the JD Welsh Cup, at both their ground and at the Bont.
But the reward is not playing as many league games are that the lowest ranked team in the competition in Penydarren find themselves in Round Three of the JD Welsh Cup where they will travel to a side with a contrast in form.
Llandudno Junction of the Cymru Alliance, three leagues above the equivalent of the division that Penydarren play in have yet to win a league game this season.
As well as doing well in the Welsh Cup, a competition where Welsh Premier League sides have been introduced. Penydarren is also in with a shout of winning the FAW Trophy, after booking their place in the last 16 with a thumping 5-0 away win at Carmarthen Stars.
And with every great team comes a good set of players and a lot of the form this season has been down to the goals of Joshua Brogden and Connor Keating who have netted ten goals between them in the league this season.
The manager that has masterminded all of Penydarren’s success is player-turned-manager Kerry Mullins, who previously managed Merthyr Saints of the Welsh League, alongside Derek Showers.
But now in his own job, Mullins is excelling in his position as he hopes to lead Penydarren into the Welsh League, after finishing second behind Pontyclun last season.
