Saints romp as City boss snubs League Cup

THE New Saints inflicted a humiliating 9-0 defeat on Bangor City to book a place in the final of the League Cup barring a miracle in the second leg.

Missing several regulars through suspension and injury, manager Mike Davies handed starting berths to several fringe players, but City boss Nev Powell snubbed the sponsors, the competition and the paying spectators, by fielding just two of the players who started in Saturday's 2-1 league win at Neath.
Despite this, it was the Citizens who nearly scored first when John Owen intercepted Chris Marriott's back-pass only for his shot to hit a post.
But, once Jamie Wood had finished-off a flowing move with the Saints' first goal on 37 minutes, it was all one-way traffic.
Wood converted Matthew Berkeley's through ball a minute later and Aeron Edwards netted the third before the break from an Alex Darlington pass.
Within four minutes of the restart, Darlington set-up Berkeley and then chipped the fifth after Berkeley had been denied by debutant keeper Danial Jones.
Scott Ruscoe got in on the act, scoring from a Craig Williams cross before sweeping home a 22-yarder before another from Darlington and a hat-trick goal from Wood completed Bangor's misery.
Keeper Jones made several fine saves, while the Saints hit the woodwork twice as they created 31 shots on goal.
