CHRIS Summers and Lee Brown were the stars of Wales' Over40s international victory over England at Mathern.

Wales took the lead in the second minute when a routine cross from the left slipped out of England keeper Dave Leggit's grasp and bounced invitingly.

Brown was the first to react, lunging to stab the ball over the line despite Leggit's effort to hook it away.

Although England tried to recover, Wales dominated the first half and Leggit made up for his early blunder with some good saves.

After the break, there was more of the same with Summers swapping wings and delivering a succession of crosses all of which came to nothing.

That was until, midway through the second half when Summers again swung a cross over which eluded Leggit and two defenders leaving unmarked Dean Morris with a simple header to double Wales' lead.

England pressed forward in search of a goal but found Wales' keeper Mark Mayes in top form as he dived full-length to his left to tip a goal-bound effort around a post and then a powerful header was pawed away by the Rhondda shot-stopper.

A harsh penalty in the dying moments - the offence clearly took place outside the penalty area - gave Wales a 3-0 victory.

Earlier, Wales Over45s drew 1-1 with England, Mark Webber rounding the keeper to slot the ball home in the 53rd minute to cancel out Steve Singh's 35-yard thunderbolt five minutes earlier.

Gary Webber might have sealed victory for Wales from the penalty spot but England keeper Kevin Walker stuck out a hand and deflected the ball away.

Before the match, both teams met The Voice contestant Hannah Berney who also presented medals and international caps.
