Swal­lows storm to cup glory

Llanelli Star - - LOCAL SOCCER -

A FIRSTRATE 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.
