Match Report - 20 Nov 2004, Ammanford AFC Firsts lost to Morriston Town

Dominance failed to win the day for Ammanford

Ammanford found it difficult to settle down in a match affected by rain and wind.

They missed two great chances in the opening 20 minutes to Nathan Jones and Paul Hughes, but play was split evenly with both teams battling hard in mid-field.

Ammanford made a defensive mistake that gave Morriston the chance to score and they made no mistake going 1-0 up with just two minutes to half time.

Ammanford had most of the second half with possession and goal chances, but Morriston's keeper alone won them the points, pulling off at least two brilliant goal-saving chances.

Ammanford had Morriston defending desperately for the last quarter of the match with Mathew Fisher putting in two shots that had goal written all over them.

The keeper saved his first effort while on the flow, having deflected a Nathan Jones shot into Fisher's path.

Paul Jones then brought a fine save from the keeper, while a Robert Griffiths' shot was saved at the second attempt with Fisher seeing his second goal attempt also saved by the keeper.

Overall, it was hard to see how Ammanford lost with their dominance. But goals win matches and, with their last five performances being quality, it is bound to be put right in no time at all.

Gavin Morris returned to the team after a serious illness in hospital.

Further good news came with Jonathan Garland's return to training after a long lay-off through injury and operations.

It was also announced that Jamie Harries has signed for Ammanford after being away in the Army. He will be a great asset to the club as he is a player of quality and will strengthen Ammanford.

lAmmanford are home to Ento Aberaman on Saturday, kick-off at 2.15pm. The Reserves are away to Afan Lido on Thursday, kick-off at 7pm.
