Pontlliw Advance In Senior Cup

Saturday 19th January 2019

Goals from Jack Yelland and Chris Doran weren't enough for Llangennech in the Senior Cup Second round as we lost 4-2 to Pontlliw.

Yelland had given Llan an early lead with an outstanding finish but Pontlliw hit back quickly with two goals of their own before half time.

A further two one-on-one finishes for 'Lliw gave them a 4-1 lead and they looked to be comfortably heading through to the next round.

But Llan made a good fight of it and substitute Chris Doran fired a lovely right footed strike in off the post.  David Lewis went agonisingly close when his effort crashed off the bar and Llan did not go out without a fight.

Team:  Martin Williams, Chris Hickey, Liam James, Lewis Williams, Jack Reynolds, Jack Yelland (Chris Doran 75), Corrie Jenkins, Nathan Jones, Daniel Evans (Reece Sales 70), Wayne Phillips and David Lewis.
