Was Assistant Referee along with Will Owen, and John Davies as referee.
I had a very quiet 1st half with the Newbridge defensive line and can't really remember the home side having more than 2 shots on goal. Newbridge were winning 0-2 at half-time. Bow Street were poor.
The 2nd half was much better with more movement from Bow Street and the game opened up more. They deserved to get a goal back and looked good at drawing things level. Then John D awarded a penalty to Newbridge about 10 mins from the end, from which they scored. On reflection I'm not sure if it was correct but John was a lot closer to it than me. Earlier Bow Street wanted a penalty but agreed with John after it looked like the player ran into the defender after playing the ball past him.
Both keepers required treatment which resulted in about 8 minutes overtime being played. I thanked John for this afterwards as my hands were so cold.
