Gavin Chesterfield elated with impact subsitute Drew Fahiya

JD Welsh Premier League

Barry Town United manager expressed his delight at impact substitute Drew Fahiya after he scored again from the substitutes bench as his goal sealed Prestatyn Town’s relegation to the Cymru Alliance.

Goals from playmaker Jordan Cotterill and Drew Fahiya ensured that Barry continued their 100% record in Phase Two of the JD Welsh Premier League and Gavin Chesterfield was quick to praise Fahiya, who has now scored twice from the substitutes bench in the last three weeks.

“I am delighted to see him get his goal. It is the second time in the last three/four weeks that he has done that, I have got good honest lads who are willing to work hard and Drew is central to that,” admitted Chesterfield.

The win meant that Barry have won six games on the spin and Chesterfield is keen for that to continue and was impressed with how his team conducting themselves in the win over Prestatyn Town.

“I thought we were very good today. We probably had 70% possession or more today and that delights me. We had a quite a few changes, but at the same time I would like to see us be more ruthless, but I suppose at this stage of the season it is the results that matter. I am delighted to get that sixth win in a row.

I feel we need to approach the rest of the games this season with excitement and look forward to the challenge. Every week is a different challenge in this league – we look forward to Prestatyn away next week, which is another difficult game.

They’re a very proud team and it is a tough place to go, but we will relish the challenge of going up there,” he confirmed.

However, despite the win, Chesterfield felt that Luke Cooper was harsh to receive a second yellow card for a foul on Damien Ketley.

“I thought it was soft at best, but the referee has got to make a decision and he has decided to show a red card and I can’t control that, unfortunately.”
