Cw­mam­man show up well in friendly

Llanelli Star - - SOCCER -

CW­MAM­MAN United rounded off their pre-sea­son prepa­ra­tions with a 3-3 draw at Pen­rhyn­coch.

The two sides play at the same level in the Welsh struc­ture, with the hosts op­er­at­ing in the newly-formed JD Cymru North and Cwm in the South sec­tion.

A young Cwm side cre­ated the early pres­sure with suc­ces­sive cor­ners, but in the 13th minute Pen­rhyn­coch took the lead with a fine lobbed fin­ish from ex­pe­ri­enced front­man St­eff Davies.

The hosts then cre­ated an­other clear-cut chance that slipped out­side the post of new Cwm keeper James Kirk­wood.

Strong de­fen­sive play from captain Gareth Howarth, Nathan Davies and Calem Rees stemmed the threats and just be­fore half-time Blues winger Ryan Hur­low equalised with a smart fin­ish af­ter a blis­ter­ing run from Luke Williams.

The sec­ond pe­riod be­gan with some strong Pen­rhyn­coch pres­sure, but soon Cw­mam­man play­ers Sean How­ells, Joe Lewis, Jack Speed and Rob Mor­gans be­gan to show up, with front­man Williams re­peat­edly driv­ing for­ward.

Cwm went ahead in the 63rd minute when the ex­pe­ri­enced Williams was brought down in the area and he got up to calmly place the ball into the top left of the goal.

But Pen­rhyn­coch lev­elled when Davies scored again.

In the fi­nal min­utes of this en­ter­tain­ing con­test both sides scored again, with the Roost­ers net­ting from a neat header be­fore the im­pres­sive Ryan Hur­low equalised for Cw­mam­man with a fine strike from out­side the box.

The se­ri­ous stuff starts now for Cw­mam­man and Ryan Stephens’s team look for­ward to their next game at Undy Ath­letic in the Nathaniel MG Cup on Satur­day.

Cw­mam­man’s sec­ond team were also in ac­tion at Pen­rhyn­coch and came away with a fine 3-0 vic­tory.

Con­nor Walters scored two goals and the ex­pe­ri­enced Nathan McNeil got the third.
