Thursday 11th November 2010

Team: Martin Williams, Rhys Davies, Dean Jones, Steffan Cook, Ian Morgan, Rhys Wakely, Nial Davies, Jack James, Chris Hickey, Dai Thomas, Paul Thomas, Tom Ballard, John Watts, Matthew Williams.

Llan may count themselves unlucky to have lost this cup affair after more than matching there opponents. However, the hosts gifted the lead to Gors and were always chasing the game afterwards. The opening goal slipped through Llan keepers hands directly from a corner midway through the half. Gors doubled their lead when slack defending out wide led to a square ball being easily finished by a midfielder six yards out.

But Llan fought to get back into the match after the restart, and after a couple of half chances they did so through Dai Thom's penalty. A cross from the right found Dai Thom who headed back across goal for the arriving Nial Davies. The midfielder was about to pull the trigger but was held back in the process and the referee awarded a penalty. Gors' keeper guessed the right way, but Thomas did enough to score. Llan rallied late on and almost forced the match into extra time as Ian Morgan attcked Jack James' deep corner, but the post denied the defender.
