TENBY United have won the Pembrokeshire Cup for the first time since 2017 with a deserved win against Aberaeron side who played their part in an entertaining final.

Played at Crymych in front of a bumper crowd, it was a first final appearance for the Seagulls up against a Tenby side who next year will play in two divisions higher and they showed why as they dictated the first half to open up an unassailable advantage at the break.

During this period they crossed for three tries to register 20 points with a sole penalty from Rhodri Jenkins in reply.

Tenby made the breakthrough when No 8 Dan Colley crossed the whitewash after just four minutes, converted by Lloyd Thomas, who added a penalty to his tally in the eighth minute.

Thomas was successful with another penalty and Luke Dedman ploughed over the line from a set piece awarded after Aeron centre Ollie Sawyer was yellow carded for illegally halting a Tenby raid.

The Ceredigion side made a strong start to the second half with a penalty by Jenkins but hopes of a comeback took a hit when replacement No 9 Cam Broadhurst burst through to the posts for Thomas to add the extra points.

Credit to Aeron, the never let their heads drop and produced an impressive series of attacking raids which culminated in the referee awarding a penalty try after a number of penalties by Tenby who also lost Dan Colley to a second yellow card.

However, they still managed a fourth try by Max Brindley. Lloyd scored the conversion at the second attempt after an Aber player had been adjudged to have charged too soon.

Back came Aberaeron with Rhys Jones powering over for a try converted by Jenkins and as they continued to press with a strong finish to the game and were rewarded with a third try by flanker Hefin Williams with Jenkins adding the points.
