Making their point
Welsh League Division 2 Morriston Town 1 Ammanford AFC 1
AMMANFORD started well with a John Anderson effort that was well saved by keeper Johnny Martin after being sent through by Malcolm Vaughan.
Morriston's reply came minutes later when Adrian Blake put in a great cross on the run and although centre forward Barker got his head to the ball, he just failed to control it.
Ammanford then scored a well taken goal after ten minutes when a Craig Morris through-ball caused panic in the home defence and centre forward Morrys Scott took out two defenders leaving Ian Jones with a kind bounce to slot home.
Morriston pulled a goal back just 15 minutes later when some slack marking in the Ammanford penalty area let Neil Simon in for a well taken goal under pressure.
Morriston then had a great chance to take the lead when they were awarded a free kick straight in front of goal just a foot outside the penalty area, but keeper Morris pulled off a superb save.
At the half-time whistle Ammanford would have felt that they had probably edged the first half, but it was Morriston who most definitely had the better of the second half.
Keeper Morris was forced into action just five minutes into the second period as he pulled off a superb diving save and was called on soon after, again to good effect.
Ammanford held firm and had two great chances themselves, one with a header and one a shot, both falling to Ian Jones, but it would have been an injustice to Morriston had they gone in.
In the end it was a good point won by Ammanford. They are home this Saturday to Fields Park, Pontllanfraith.
The Seconds were back in action against Seven Sisters and came out 4-1 winners in a performance manager Clive Brooks was well pleased with, all the team putting in 100 per cent with Gavin Porter scoring a great hat-trick and Jason Joshuah adding one.
