The match took place on a beautiful summer evening in front of over 300 eager supporters, even more significant was that Trundles ex-management team at Neath Andy Dyer & Ray Pennock are now at the helm of the blues.

After a busy pre-season schedule Ferry manager Carl Shaw named Trundle in the starting line up with defenders Ian Hillier and Josh Pike away on holiday, Dean Hudson started in the centre of defence alongside Josh Cockings with Ross Hudson and Lee John playing at full back.
A familiar midfield three of Healey, Warren Hudson and Kenyon was complimented by Ryan Griffiths and Steve Davey on the wings.

The first half was a very even affair with some good chances falling to both teams, a good strike from the edge of the box by blues midfielder David Brooks being the only goal to separate the teams at half time.

The second half traditionally saw lots of changes for both teams with Port Talbot substitute Joe Clarke scoring the visitors second after good work on the left from Leon Jeanne.

Shaw introduced Sam Baker, Gareth Jones and Gavin Jones and the changes made an impact with the reds having a good spell in the last 20 minutes, ex-Port Talbot player Lee John with the highlight of the match shortly before full time with a thunderbolt free kick from 30 yards beating outstretched goalkeeper Steve Cann.

All in all a worthy game for a true gentleman that will be remembered for Trundle's appearance in red.
