Wales kicked off their Four Nations Tournament off in the best possible way with a well deserved 2-1 victory over Scotland on a perfect Bognor Regis pitch. The Welsh started well as the Scots struggled to gel as a team and Andy Beattie’s side took the lead following poor defensive work. Goal poacher Graham Evans from the Welsh Premier League, winning his seventeenth cap at this level, won a header unchallenged and after a mis clearance, the TNS hitman coolly finished in the bottom right corner. Wales doubled their lead as their passing became more fluent and Dagenham striker Chris Moore, who has netted 18 goals in the Conference this year, took his chance excellently. After chasing what seemed a lost cause, he forced Mark Smith into an error before rounding ’keeper Ridgers and netting into an empty goal at a very acute angle. Evans had a glorious chance to make it three and surely put the game beyond their Northern counterparts, but a late tug from Robert Brown unnerved the potent marksman and his shot was saved.

The Scots started the second half the better and seemed to be lifted by a team talk from their vocal Manager Tommy McIntyre. A chance fell to Neil McLean but his miss-hit signalled that it wasn’t going to be the Scots night. Beattie rang the changes for the Welsh, as the chances came thick and fast, firstly for debutante Les Davies and then Paul Roberts. The creative Lee Fowler’s nifty footwork also created space for a piledriver to hit the bar. Livewire midfielder Paul Keddle was a handful all game down the left flank and the centre backs, Matthew Coupe, Gethin Jones and latterly substitute Wyn Thomas ensured that Wales skipper Tony Roberts had a quiet game between the sticks. He can surely take no blame foe the Scottish goal, which stunned Beattie’s men, but was as good a free-kick as you’ll see all summer. Iain Thomson of Spartans struck from thirty yards with pace and conviction and it sailed into the postage stamp. Referee Darren Deadman played five minutes of injury time, which must have seemed an eternity for the Welsh side, but they hung on for a deserved win and three points to top the group with England, who beat a young Irish team by two goals to nil. Welsh Manager Andy Beattie stated “I’m pleased with the win, I though the lads all did exactly what was asked of them and I’m now focussed and looking forward to the next match with England in Thursday.” - REPORT from
