Reserves Held To Goalless Draw

Sunday 24th October 2010

Llangennech's Reserves moved up to fifth in Reserve Division Three after a 0-0 draw away at Camford yesterday.

Despite dominating much of the game and having the better of the chances, Llan couldn't quite make the breakthrough and had to settle for a point.

There were two changes to the team that beat Burry Port A 6-4 last week.  With the 1st team's game away at Killay called off, Martin Williams came in as goalkeeper and Adam Edwards slotted in at left back in place of Jack Reynolds who dropped to the bench.

Camford started the game well and put Llangennech under pressure early on, before centre half Nathan Phillips tested the home side's goalkeeper mid-way through the first period with a long range effort which was tipped wide for a corner.  The defender had to leave the action minutes later though as he came off worst in a 50-50 tackle.  Jack Reynolds came on to replace him.

Llan started to up their game in the second half and were unlucky not to go ahead as they saw a string of opportunities go begging.  Tom Ballard cut inside from the left wing only to see his effort hit the outside of the post and go out for a goal kick.  Alex Dakin saw a curling left foot effort saved by the feet of the Camford 'keeper.  Kieran Davies and second half substitutes Chris Hicky and Craig Anderson also had chances to open the scoring but couldn't find the net.

In the end Llan picked up their 2nd clean sheet of the season to make it 4 points from their last two games.

Next week the reserves are in Darch Cup action away at Reserve Division 1 side Pengelli.
