Tenby’s first team brought their league season to a close recently, playing their last three games in the short space of just five days.

Having already been confirmed as Division Three champions, the Seasiders made the trip to Pendine, securing a dominant 9-0 victory before being presented with the league trophy by Steve Briers of the Pembrokeshire League.

Tenby’s next midweek fixture was away at Cosheston where they kept their thirteenth clean sheet in 20 games with a thumping 7-0 win.

Their final game was the long journey to face a plucky Fishguard Seconds side who were up for a battle. Ultimately though, there was only going to be one winner with Tenby winning the match 2-6.

After climbing from Division Five to Three in consecutive seasons, there was a thought that maybe this young promising outfit would find their level in this division.

This wasn’t to be though as Tenby’s first team have impressed each week, remaining unbeaten in the league, winning all 20 of their matches, scoring 121 goals in the process and conceding just 11 goals, meaning an astounding goal difference of +110!

Striker Jerome Mansbridge also finished a successful season personally as top goalscorer in Division Three with a healthy tally of 37 goals.

Promotion to Division Two was always part of a long term plan set out under manager Gareth Noot and assistant Dene Hurlow, but with the small matter of the Division Three cup semi final against Goodwick Seconds looming, a league and cup double would be the icing on the cake, and the perfect way to finish an extremely successful season.

With the addition of key members to their backroom staff already this season, Tenby firsts can then enjoy the summer break before coming back in readiness for an assault on Division Two and all the challenges that accompany it, with the hope to finally make it back to the top league in the near future.
