Towy Valley 0 Llangennech 4

Saturday 14th February 2009

Llangennech booked their place in the Quarter Finals of the Challenge Cup by beating Division Two side Towy Valley in Llandovery on Saturday.  Dai Thomas returned to replace the injured Curtis Roberts up front while the rest of the team remained the same that beat Llanelli A two weeks ago.

Team:  Martin Williams, Christian Williams, Nathan Phillips, Steffan Cook, Ian Morgan, Tom Harris, Rhys Wakely, Darren Dickeson, Dean Williams, Gavin Williams, Dai Thomas.  Subs:  Paul Thomas, Alex Dakin, Adam Edwards.

Dai Thomas gave Llangennech the lead in the 35th minute when Gavin Williams' shot rebounded to him off the crossbar.  Dai lifted the ball cooly over the keeper.

Darren Dickeson then scored Llangennech's second at the beginning of the second half with a shot from the edge of the area following a Gavin Williams corner.

Dai Thomas quickly added a third for Llan finding space in the box before blasting the ball with his left foot past the goalkeeper.

Gavin Williams then completed the scoring around ten minutes later after he was taken down in the box when clean through on goal.  He picked himself up to convert the spot kick himself.

Llan now have a quarter final match to look forward to in the Challenge Cup against fellow Third Division side Penllergaer next week and the management are ordering a full turnout from all senior players in training this week with competition for places hotting up as the squad gets bigger and bigger.  Training is at 6:30pm in Llangennech Park on Tuesday and at 6pm in Coedcae School on Thursday.

The Second team will possibly have a fixture next weekend and you can find out about this here.

To finish, the club polo shirts will be ready for collection on the 28th February and you must pay your £12 before receiving your top.  A committee member will be collecting money from Saturday and also Simon will be collecting money in training on Tuesday.
