JUNIORS AND MINIS RETURN TO PLAY
Sunday 18th April 2021
42 players across four teams were finally able to get their boots back on and play some football this weekend!
Facing Camford this weekend, the U9's put in a strong performance.
U9's coach Charlie said, "We played well as a team and played some of our best football yet".
A positive return to action saw Efan, Lola and Macsen all get themselves on the scoresheet for Llan. The whole team performed brilliantly. Thank you to Camford for a very well contested match.
Squad: Alfie, Charlie, Efan, Ioan, Jack, Lola, Macsen and Zachary.
Four months after their last match and training session, 13 players turned out for an early start down Burry Port. Early enough to want a return to lockdown for another two hours in bed at least!
Plenty of rust on the legs, which showed, but some nice flowing football was seen in glimpses and we can't wait to see what the boys can do after a few weeks back at it 100 miles per hour.
Coach Daniel Price said, "It was very difficult to get into any rhythm with so many players for only one game but the important thing was getting all our players out on the pitch and enjoying a game of football again"
Football aside, there were friends laughing and joking together whilst representing the club and our thanks to Burry Port for hosting us in a safe environment.
Squad: Aled, Alfie, Ariandus, Ashton, Celt, Daniel, Ellis, Jac, Jacob, Jayden, Keaton, Riley and Rocco.
The U11's faced off against Evans & Williams this weekend.
A great team performance from Llan helped to create a very competitive battle against a strong Albies side.
A brilliant effort from Rhys saw him pick up a hat-trick with George scoring 2 goals in an impressive return for the U11's
Coach Curtis Roberts said "It was a great performance against a good side. We showed a great attitude with some very nice team goals."
Squad: George, Gruff, Harlyn, Jack J, Jack N, Keaton, Rhys, Steff, Tyler and William.
In a game of two halves, it was Camford who came out victorious.
Llangennech found themselves 2-1 in front at half-time after a dominant first-half display. In the second half, it was Camford who came out stronger as they took the game to Llan. Match fitness told in the end with Camford hitting the back of the net with ease at times, finishing in an 8-3 defeat for Llangennech.
"After just one training session and back into a big match, we did ourselves some justice and hopefully we can get back to winning ways next weekend", said coach Justin Williams.
It was great to see so many players representing the club out on the field again this weekend after such a long time out and we are hopeful that our younger sides can continue to play football as restrictions begin to ease.
