23 May 2003 : Way Puts England In Control
England's National Game XI side last night put themselves on the bring of winning the 2003 Four Nations Tournament when they defeated holders Wales at Merthyr Tydfil in front of 711 supporters.

Glovers midfielder Darren Way ensured that they got off to a flying start, when he struck home a 20-yarder with barely more than 15 minutes on the clock. Aldershot's Rosco D'Sane got the second when he converted a penalty after a foul in the box.

Once again, the Glovers had all five of their contigent in the starting line-up and Chris Weale, Lee Johnson and Kirk Jackson completed a full 90 minutes.

Three second half changes saw two Yeovil players withdrawn with Chester's Wayne Hatswell replacing Terry Skiverton on the hour mark, whilst Dagenham's Mark Janney replaced Darren Way on 75 mins. Lee Elam was also replaced by Doncaster's Tristan Whitman.

The England party now travel to the home of Camarthen Town, where on Saturday they will take on Scotland (kick-off 1.00pm) who defeated Ireland 4-3 last night. England need a draw to secure a win in the mini-competition. However, thanks to their superior goal difference, even a defeat could see them win the competition, unless one of Scotland or Wales - who meet the Republic of Ireland at Haverford West - go goal crazy in the final matches.
