TRALLWM EDGE TO­WARDS TI­TLE

Llanelli Star - - LOCAL FOOTBALL -

IT was very much a skele­ton pro­gramme over the Easter week­end in the LTC Mo­bil­ity Car­marthen­shire League, but Trallwm took a huge step to­wards lift­ing the ti­tle in the Premier di­vi­sion with a stun­ning 6-0 win away to Trostre Sports.

It was a qual­ity performanc­e from Trallwm, for whom Joel An­drews struck twice. The ti­tle favourites pulled fur­ther clear with fur­ther goals from Chris Grif­fiths, Peter Chal­lis, Luke Ni­cholas and Josh Thom.

Asked to play their third game in six days, Pontl­liw still had enough en­ergy left to beat Llan­dovery Town 3-1 in their away clash in di­vi­sion two. On tar­get for Pontl­liw were Danny Smale, Adam Scott, and Liam McCann.

In the fi­nal league game of the sea­son in di­vi­sion two, Pen­l­ler­gaer were due to host FC Car­marthen, who need three points to be crowned cham­pi­ons.

Pen­l­ler­gaer, how­ever, failed to raise a team and the game will have to be re­ar­ranged as per league rules. If nei­ther team had any­thing to play for FC Car­marthen would have been awarded a 4-0 win.

In the fi­nal of the TG Davies Cup it will be Trallwm against Pontl­liw at Ste­bon­heath Park next Wed­nes­day (May 1). The kick-off is at 7pm.

In the first of the semi-fi­nals at Co­leg Sir Gar, striker Adam Scott was on fire with a hat-trick in help­ing Pontl­liw knock out Pwll Ath­letic 5-1.

For the first 45 min­utes there was lit­tle to choose be­tween the teams, and at the break it only 1-0 in favour of Pontl­liw.

The sec­ond half, how­ever, was dom­i­nated by Pontl­liw, who pulled clear thanks to two more goals from An­drew Shaw and Liam McCann.

The sec­ond semi-fi­nal was much tighter, and Premier di­vi­sion giants Trallwm were given a scare be­fore get­ting the bet­ter of first di­vi­sion op­po­nents Felin­foel 1-0.

It took a won­der strike from Kris Brown in the 31st minute to sep­a­rate the teams.

Other cup fi­nal dates for the diary, all four to be played at Ste­bon­heath Park:

Fri­day, May 3: Un­der-14 RWB Cup fi­nal — Dafen v Pon­tard­du­lais Town (7pm).

Also in mid­week, there was an im­por­tant Premier di­vi­sion clash and Bwlch Rangers did their hopes of a suc­cess­ful de­fence of the ti­tle no harm with a con­vinc­ing 3-0 win away to Sea­side.

It was a thor­oughly de­served three points for Bwlch, for whom Matthew Hughes scored in each half. A third goal was added by Mitchell Hughes, and it was 1-0 at half-time.

Play­ing their penul­ti­mate league game of the sea­son in di­vi­sion one, Wayne Wil­liams net­ted twice for lead­ers Burry Port in their 3-1 derby win at Kid­welly Town. Lewis James scored the other Port goal.

There was max­i­mum points for Se­nior Cup win­ners Am­man­ford Town Re­serves, for whom Kyle Grazette im­pressed with a brace of goals in help­ing de­feat Llan­dovery Town 4-3 in their away match. The other two goals were scored by Rho­dri Davies and Adam Wol­ley.

Llan­dovery Town also played their part in an en­ter­tain­ing game and were re­warded for their ef­forts with goals from Tom Hyde, Fen Wil­son and Rhys Kelly.

Pontl­liw were in ac­tion for the sec­ond time in three days, this time de­feat­ing Pem­brey 5-1 at home.

Four of the Pontl­liw goals were shared be­tween Matthew Davies and James How­ells, while striker Adam Scott also once again got his name on the score­sheet.

In reserve di­vi­sion one, Gor­seinon Ath­letic proved too strong for vis­it­ing Sea­side in win­ning 3-1 af­ter being a goal to the good at the break. Goals from Jamie Har­ris, Lewis Evans and Aaron Bushrod did the busi­ness for Gor­seinon.

In the best of the ac­tion in di­vi­sion two, Burry Port claimed a de­served 3-1 win away to CK Swiss Val­ley.

And de­spite being on the back foot in the early stages, it was Burry Port who went in at half-time 1-0 ahead. A cross by Charlie Tay­lor was met by Robert Thomas at the far post and his header pre­sented Jamie Phillips with the chance to score from close range.

Although the home side got back on terms early in the sec­ond half, Port re­gained control to shoot ahead for the sec­ond time through Charlie Tay­lor who, di­rect from a free-kick, blasted the ball into the top cor­ner.

At this stage it was all Port, and the vis­i­tors were handed a golden chance to se­cure the points when the ref­eree pointed to the spot for a foul on Jamie Phillips, and it was Phillips him­self who con­verted the penalty to put day­light be­tween the teams.

Pwll Ath­letic Re­serves made ground ad­van­tage count when de­feat­ing gal­lant Tum­ble United Re­serves 4-2. The goals for Pwll were shared be­tween Dar­ren Pull­man and Alan Stevens.
