Swallows storm to cup glory
A FIRSTRATE performance enabled Llandysul to spring a 2-1 win over new Costcutter League champions St Dogmaels in the final of the Cardigan Bay Cup.
It goes into the Llandysul Park trophy cabinet along with the Easter Monday League Cup.
Saints suffered their second final defeat, the Teifi Estuary side having gone down 3-0 against Penparcau in the J Emrys Morgan Cup at Penrhyncoch last month.
The new champs were without a number of key players, with skipper and central defender Jason Williams injured and the three Jones brothers – Rhys, Daniel and Luke – unavailable.
The Swallows controlled the game for lengthy periods and thoroughly deserved to take the trophy.
Chris Harris put Llandysul in front before the interval with a typical poacher’s goal, his 20th strike of the season.
Top marksman Louis Harding squared matters midway through the second period, but less than two minutes later Llandysul were awarded a penalty for a handling offence and skipper Dean Jones beat Casey Walters from the spot.
