Match Report - 10 Nov 2007, Ammanford AFC Firsts beat Garden Village

Ammanford created a chance in the tenth minute when a Richard Lewis cross from the byline found the unmarked Cerison Davies who volleyed wide from an acute angle.

Garden Village replied with an attack from inside their own half that was eventually scrambled clear at the third attempt.

Luke Fayres created a chance for Richard Lewis in the 15th minute but good defence by the visitors forced Lewis wide and shot from an acute angle that was easily cleared.

Garden Village were having much the better play before they scored a well taken goal by Liam Siroca after keeper Walton had managed to keep the first effort out but the defence was slow in the closing Siroca down and he took the chance easily.

Ammanford were getting better as the match progressed and indeed they managed to get on level terms in the 35th minute when Dean Jenkins beat two defenders on the byline before crossing into the box for Luke Fayres to put in an unstoppable shot to level the scores.

Before Garden Village had time to recover Ammanford could easily have gone 2-1 up when a brilliant effort from Luke Fayres hit the cross bar with the keeper well and truly beaten.

Ammanford's pace was beginning to tell and it came as no surprise when the went 2-1 when a rare headed goal from captain Cerison Davies that was the result of putting the visitors under pressure.

Ammanford thought they had scored again in the 60th minute but the effort was ruled rightly offside.

It took a superb save from Lloyd, the visitors' keeper, who dived at the foot of the post to save a certain goal from Richard Lewis.

With time running out Garden Village threw men forward and had Ammanford on the defence but Ammanford could always pose problems with their pace, and scored a third with a goal of class from Luke Fayres, for what was eventually a deserved victory over the 90th minute.

The reserves had an excellent 2-1 victory away to Llansawel on Friday night. There are no matches for the firsts or reserves Saturday as Wales are playing home. The club would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone involved in the gentlemens evening held last Saturday which proved an overwhelming success with Alan Kennedy the ex England and Liverpool player as guest speaker. Thanks to all
