Bow Street Llandrindod


The home team dominated the


their mid-week victory over Tywyn with an even more emphatic result against fancied Llandrindod. A good crowd gathered at a sun


drenched Cae Piod to witness the home team score two goals in each half. Andrew Gittins opened the scoring


after seven minutes from close range, and Tom Williams scored an excellent individual goal just before half time. Before the second goal, Bow


Street withstood an intense period of Llandrindod pressure, but the defending was resolute with the two centre backs, Neil Evans and Tomos Wyn, outstanding.


The third goal was an outstanding


long range effort from Llion Jenkins, the game’s outstanding player, and Gittins got his second just before the end.


Manager Barry Williams was understandably pleased: “I am happy with the result, and the way that our new players are settling in. Also, the spirit and determination of the boys shone through, especially during the period that we were under pressure from Llandrindod. “But it is early days still, and we


look forward to some difficult matches coming up before the end of the month.”


Roosters impress at Te Oval TNS Caernarfon Town Penrhyncoch


3 1


PENRHYNCOCH began their


life in the Huws Gray Alliance with a 3-1 loss, giving title holders Caernarfon a scare in the first half as the Mid Wales League Champions impressed at the Oval. 16-year-old Harri Horwood was


one of the new players given the nod by manager Gari Lewis, and Caernarfon showed their potential from the off, as roosters keeper Lee Jenkins was called into action in the first 30 seconds of the match. Cory Williams broke forward straight from kick off, shooting straight at Jenkins. For most of the half, though, the


game was quite even, with both sides having chances. Josh Shaw shot wide early on, whilst every header in the defensive and attacking side of the pitch seemed to be headed away by ex- Canaries defender Jon Foligno, with Foligno having two attacking headers for the Roosters, one saved and one just wide. As the half wore on though,


Caernarfon Town began to exert some pressure on the Ceredigion outfit’s defence, a Jay Gibbs low shot was tipped wide by Lee Jenkins late in the half, but they were unable to break the deadlock as the two sides came in level at half time. The second began as the first


had ended, as the Canaries upped the tempo, and took the lead on 50 minutes, as Cory Williams was played in by a backheel. Manager Gari Lewis made a


change, with another new signing, Dafydd Carruthers,


replacing


Horwood, and almost played an instant impact as he broke forward minutes after coming on, getting past three Caernarfon defenders before squaring for Dean Evans, who curled a shot that was on target but well saved by the Ceararfon keeper. With 25 minutes to go, the game


was still very much in the balance but Caernarfon doubled their lead, as Cory Williams broke forward yet again before crossing for Darren Thomas to finish from close range. Penrhyn rallied from this moment,


having a number of chances in the following minutes. Sion James hit the side netting, while a Josh Shaw shot was well saved yet again by the Caernarfon Town keeper, and with just under 15 minutes left to play, delight for the Roosters, as Josh Shaw rifled home an Antonio Corbisiero corner, and Penrhyn sniffed that they could get a result out of the game. However, with minutes left on


the clock and with Penrhyn pushing on, Darren Thomas broke forward on a counter attack and renewed Caernarfon’s two goal advantage, which they held until the end of the game.


Aberystwyth Town


2 1


ABERYSTWYTH TOWN


recovered from a tough first half to take Champions TNS to the wire on Sunday at Park Hall, where Chris Jones’ stunning free kick brought the Black and Greens right back into things before they eventually succumbed to a 2-1 defeat. There is no denying that the hosts


started well and dominated the first half with an impressive performance. Aber keeper Dominic Richards


was busy from the start and made a string of crucial saves to keep his side in it, denying Scott Quigley and Aeron Edwards early on. Adrian Ciesliewicz hit the cross


bar with a volley, then Will Bell saved Aber by deflecting Simon Spender’s low volley on to the post. 15 minutes had gone when the ball


dropped to Ryan Brobbel from five yards out and he tapped home to give the hosts a logical lead. Aber did respond when Geoff


Kellaway’s flick on found Jonathan Evans down the right channel, but his shot went wide.


Richards then denied Ciesliewicz


again, and Ryan Wollacott made a fine block to frustrate Quigley. An injury to Greg Walters brought


about a stop in play and the appearance of sub Ricky Watts, but the offensive pattern of TNS’ game continued. After Edwards had hit the post with a volley, they doubled their lead on 38 minutes when Ciesliewicz lobbed Richards from the left pocket and, despite a brave effort, Cledan Davies was unable to prevent the ball crossing the line.


Richards pulled off yet another


injury time save and, to tell the truth, visiting supporters were glad to reach the break at 2-0, with TNS having thoroughly dominated proceedings. The Black and Greens’ second half


showing was much better. A couple of slight tactical switches by Matthew Bishop made a world of difference, and although Richards again did well to deny Ciesliewicz a second, Aber were now competing. With Watts making swashbuckling runs down the right, a recovery looked possible. Watts set up sub Chris Jones with


a delightful flick and the Gower goal- getter shot wide with his first touch. Kellaway was next to burst down


the right and he tested Paul Harrison’s gloves with a low shot, but TNS were still dangerous with Greg Draper and Simon Spender threatening the away goal.


However, Will Bell and Sam


Rodon created an excellent defensive barrier in front of the goal, and with Luke Sherbon also working hard defensively just in front of the back four, the chance of a recovery was there.


Then on 81 minutes, Jones himself


ran at the heart of the back four and earned himself a free kick, before rifling a brilliant strike right into the top corner for a certain ‘Goal of the Month Contender’ for August. Luke Borrelli’s free kick was


then nodded goalwards by sub Lewis Coyle, and Aber were dreaming of an incredible comeback. Sadly though, it was not meant to be, and the hosts prevailed, though not without undergoing a stressful last 20 minutes. Aber’s spirited fightback was not


quite enough, but having competed very well away to the Champions in the second half, they will take great confidence heading into Sunday’s (Aug 21) equally tough assignment, away to Airbus UK Broughton.
