Six in a row for Saints

Llanelli Star - - Sport -

COSTCUTTER League di­vi­sion one lead­ers St Dog­maels re­turned to ac­tion in style as they made it six wins on the bounce at the ex­pense of New­cas­tle Em­lyn, who were brushed aside 3-0 at School Field.

On the ev­i­dence of this game, J Em­rys Mor­gan Cup hold­ers Em­lyn could ex­pe­ri­ence great dif­fi­culty fig­ur­ing on the roll of hon­our at the busi­ness end of the cam­paign.

Out­field player Rob­bie Jenk­ins started the game in goal and man­ager Owain Thomas took over be­tween the sticks for the sec­ond pe­riod, which was dom­i­nated by Saints.

In-form striker Peter Al­mond fin­ished clin­i­cally to put the home side in front and that’s how it re­mained un­til the sec­ond half.

Winger Billy My­ers fin­ished off a good move to dou­ble the lead and Rhys Jones fired past Thomas from 20 yards to wrap up the points.

Jason Wil­liams and Co travel to Powys this week­end to take on New­town Wan­der­ers in round one of the Em­rys Mor­gan.

Af­ter home wins over Llan­boidy and New­cas­tle Em­lyn, com­plet­ing a hat-trick was plain sail­ing for Llandy­sul, who came out on top 3-0 at Felin­fach.

With new striker Ash­ley Summers, who re­cently joined from Em­lyn, mak­ing an im­pact up front with in­tel­li­gent run­ning off the ball, the vis­i­tors con­trolled the con­test from the first whis­tle and were three goals in front af­ter 30 min­utes be­fore ap­pear­ing to ease up.

Jason Clay­ton fired the Swal­lows ahead, at­tack­ing mid­fielder Lewis Jones blasted a 30-yard ef­fort into the top cor­ner to dou­ble the ad­van­tage and Chris Har­ries then added a third to put his side in the com­fort zone.
