Classy Am­man­ford young­sters shine with twin suc­cess

Llanelli Star - - SPORT -

AM­MAN­FORD Town Un­der-15s con­tin­ued their fine form with a 5-1 de­feat of Loughor in the Car­marthen­shire Ju­nior League.

The vis­i­tors started well and were awarded a free-kick just out­side the box. And while Kieran Brook saved the ef­fort, the fol­low-up was scram­bled into the net.

Am­man­ford moved up a gear and it wasn’t long be­fore Scott Pugh linked with Harry G, who put away the first of his three goals.

Am­man­ford con­tin­ued to press and were awarded a penalty af­ter some fine work by Rhy­dian Davies. Up stepped Kellen Ed­wards, who made no mis­take with his spot-kick.

A cou­ple of fine saves by Brook kept Am­man­ford in front be­fore the break.

Town con­stantly looked a threat af­ter the in­ter­val and were awarded a free-kick just out­side the box. Osian Davies guided his left-foot shot into the top cor­ner to ex­tend the ad­van­tage.

It was only a mat­ter of time be­fore the hosts struck again, with Harry G bag­ging two more goals to com­plete his hat-trick.

The vic­tory came hot on the heels of an equally im­pres­sive 8-1 win over Pwll in mid­week.

Am­man­ford made an ex­plo­sive start and were de­nied by the post three times in the first five minutes, but it was Pwll who opened the scor­ing af­ter an Am­man­ford mis­take at the back.

Town soon equalised from an 18yard strike from Cal­lum Thomas, and when Scott Pugh was bun­dled over in the area, Kellen Ed­wards belted home the spot-kick to make it 2-1.

An Osian Davies cor­ner was headed home by Iestyn Richards to make it 3-1 at half-time.

Am­man­ford were in con­trol af­ter the break and two as­sists from Rhy­dian Davies helped Harri Thomas and Harrison Grif­fiths get on the score­sheet.

Cian Wil­liams was next to as­sist the in­flu­en­tial Grif­fiths, who went on to com­plete his hat-trick.

The goal of the game came at the end when Evan Har­row stepped in­side two would-be tack­lers be­fore un­leash­ing a rocket into the net.
