Nomads match 62 year Welsh Cup goals record

Date Published: Thursday, 10th May, 2018 - 8:45am

While The Nomads won the Welsh Cup for the first time in the club's history this past weekend, the result also helped The Nomads to equal a goalscoring record that has stood since 1956.

The Nomads' aggregate scoreline across the semi-final and final was 10-2, something that has not been achieved since the 1955/56 season which saw Cardiff City defeat Oswestry Town 7-0 in the semi final before going on to defeat Swansea City in the final 3-2.

While a number of teams have scored nine across the combined semi and final games since, only The Nomads and Cardiff City have hit the double figure mark since 1956. This includes a period between 1960 to 1986 which saw a variety of two-legged semi finals, two legged finals and in some instances, three legged finals, giving those sides a much greater opportunity to reach a higher tally.

Andy Owens was The Nomads 'impact-player' when it came to the goals across the two games, scoring a hat-trick against Bangor City in the semi-final and coming off the bench against Aberystwyth in the final to score the final goal of the game on Sunday afternoon.

Additionally, Michael Bakare achieved an outstanding feat, by scoring in every round of the Welsh Cup this season, thanks to his goals against Cwmbran Celtic, Porthmadog, TNS, Bangor and in the final against Aberystwyth.
