Match Report - 06 Dec 2008, Ammanford AFC Firsts beat Garw


In the second division, Ammanford built on a 5-0 win at Caerau Ely the week before in triumphing 5-1 over Garw at Blandy.

Though Garw opened the scoring through Lloyd Griffiths, two goals from Luke Fayres allied to a Richard Lewis penalty brought about a 3-1 scoreline at the break.

However, Garw finished with just nine men, Richard Llewellyn and Lloyd Griffiths receiving straight red cards, resulting in Ammanford recording further goals from Richard Thomas and top scorer Fayres, his 11th of the season.


Ammanford just can't stop scoring at the minute. They recorded another impressive 'high five' at Garw on Saturday in Macwhirter Welsh League division two.

In fact, Ammanford gave Garw their biggest hiding of the season, although the home side finished the game with only nine men due to two red cards.

Striker Richard Lewis almost scored in the fifth minute, taking on the Garw defence but his shot was well saved.

After this bright start Ammanford found themselves a goal adrift two minutes later when inept defending led to a quality goal.

But two minutes later Ammanford were level; Mathew Jones supplied a pass to Luke Fayres , who netted at the first time of asking.

Ammanford brought on Ben Soal for the injured Scott Evans in the 15th minute. But the visitors remained settled and went ahead five minutes later when Richard Lewis was felled inside the box and scored from the penalty spot.

In-form Luke Fayres quickly followed up with goal number three and his second, lobbing the Garw keeper from 20 yards. Just before Fayres netted Garw had a player sent off.

As the first half drew to a close Paul Jones was denied glory when his rasping free-kick was forced out for a corner.

Ten minutes into the second half another red card left Garw with only nine players. Ammanford took immediate advantage, scoring another goal. This time central defender Richard Thomas trotted up for a corner and his powerful header hit the back of the net.

Fayres completed his second hat-trick of the season with goal number five.

Ammanford have gained 10 points from their last four outings and will be hoping to fashion another win when visiting Maesteg Park on Saturday.

Ammanford Reserves, who are third in their division, drew 2-2 at home to Porthcawl. They host Pontardawe this weekend
