Shock victory for newly formed Ynysddu Welfare Youth football team

Ynysddu Welfare beat Briton Ferry in a dramatic penalty shootout to progress to the next round.

Two weeks ago Ynysddu Welfare football club didn't even have a youth side but after hastily scrambling players together they've won their first match and are now waiting to find out who they'll face in the next round of the FAW Youth Cup.

Sunday's first round was a dramatic one.

Ynysddu Welfare travelled to Briton Ferry and at the end of the 90 minutes the two teams were drawing 2 all.

A dramatic penalty shoot out followed with the newly formed side taking the spoils.

It was an unbelievable day. We've now got another chapter in this story which is brilliant. I don't think it's quite sunk in what we have achieved but the overriding feeling is immense pride. The players, supporters, coaches and committee did our club proud and it's a day we will never forget."

An administrative error had meant that Ynysddu Welfare had been drawn in the cup despite not having a youth side.

After being notified of their place team manager Ben Murphy began a social media search to see if he could get a team together in time.

He was overwhelmed by the response.

Players from England and Northern Ireland even got in touch to offer their services.

A week ago more than twenty five young men turned up to take part in a training session and a team was selected.

Ynysddu Welafare will now have to wait to find out who they'll face in round two of the FAW Youth Cup in November.

Swansea City are currently the title holders and to be drawn against them would be the 'perfect tie' says Murphy.
