Goals came from 16 yr old hot prospect Aaron Ramsey finishing well from a Paul Parry cross, a Jason Byrne free-kick outside the area and a Matt Green diving header from another Parry cross in front of 750, mostly City fans, and Cardiff City supporting Welsh Premiership ref Phil Southall.
When you want to kiss your missus somewhere smelly,
take her to Port Talbot
Ramsey and Parry were the stars of the show but Matt Green and Kevin Cooper also showed up well. Purse, dropped into the side for the night having missed previous friendlies culminating in an appalling personal display in the weekend 6-4 loss at Stockport, still looked off the pace and well short of match fitness but will step things up with the new season starting in 11 days time. He was also the only City player at Port Talbot likely to start in the home clash with Stoke.
Next and final 1st team friendly for Cardiff is the weekend's home clash with Dutch side, FC Twente, a game that will also see Robbie Fowler make his bow for City.
