Frater on tar­get to put the seal on Am­man­ford vic­tory

Llanelli Star - - SOCCER -

AM­MAN­FORD AFC en­joyed a 2-0 vic­tory over Ynysygerwn in a pre-sea­son friendly played at Llan­darcy.

It took Am­man­ford the best part of 30 min­utes to set­tle and score the open­ing goal of the game.

It came when for­ward Bruno Fork­ouh was up­ended in the penalty area and mid­fielder Mathew Fisher duly con­verted the spot-kick.

Ynysygerwn held a tight de­fence up to this point, with ex-Am­man­ford player Rhys Owen mar­shalling his fel­low de­fend­ers.

Am­man­ford keeper Craig Mor­ris also had to be on his toes in the early stages to keep out some close-range ef­forts.

Ricky Martin al­most dou­bled the lead and it took a scram­bled clear­ance by the Ynysygerwn keeper to pre­vent the ball from creep­ing over his goal line.

Ynysygerwn did fight back and were re­warded with a penalty, but the ef­fort re­bounded off a post and away to safety.

Min­utes later, a through ball played up to Am­man­ford striker Craig Frater bounced over the head of cen­tre-half Owen and the Ynysygerwn de­fender could only watch on as Frater slot­ted the ball past the keeper to dou­ble Am­man­ford’s tally.

The sec­ond half pro­duced some half-chances for Am­man­ford but a res­o­lute Ynysygerwn de­fence held firm.

Am­man­ford’s de­fence also coped with any threats from Ynysygerwn and the sec­ond half was more of a stale­mate.

Am­man­ford head to Car­marthen Town on Satur­day for their fi­nal pre-sea­son en­counter.
