Jenk­ins header puts Sea­side on course

Llanelli Star - - LOCAL SOCCER -

SEA­SIDE de­feated Am­man­ford 2-1 in the Car­marthen­shire Ju­nior League’s MJ Bush Cup at un­der-15 level.

Sea­side started with a bang and within the first two min­utes cre­ated an opportunit­y for Jac Jones, who hit the cross­bar from 20 yards out with a rasp­ing left-foot shot.

Am­man­ford, to their credit, set­tled down and played some good pos­ses­sion foot­ball.

But Sea­side grad­u­ally got on top and won a cor­ner after 30 min­utes. And a pin­point de­liv­ery from Josh Cole was met by a tow­er­ing header by Tray Jenk­ins, who pow­ered his header into the net.

The sec­ond half started well for Sea­side, who showed some ex­cel­lent pass­ing and move­ment. They had made a tac­ti­cal change at the in­ter­val and it was sub­sti­tute Trys­tan Nunes who scored a won­der­ful goal, full of pace, power and pre­ci­sion.

After that, Sea­side con­tin­ued to dom­i­nate pos­ses­sion and cre­ated a few more op­por­tu­ni­ties, but the Am­man­ford keeper kept them in the game with some ex­cel­lent saves.

An ex­tra six min­utes of stop­page time were played and this lifted Am­man­ford. They won a cor­ner and man­aged to score a scram­bled goal.

Am­man­ford pressed hard for an equaliser, but it was Sea­side who had a break­away, only for Connor Ch­ester to hit the post.

Tray Jenk­ins was named man of the match.

Sea­side Un­der-15s cel­e­brate their cup vic­tory.
