CARMARTHEN'S hopes of achieving a third League Cup final appearance in five seasons were shattered by a moment of brilliance from Barry’s Jordan Cotterill which gave the Welsh League side a narrow victory after the Old Gold had failed to capitalise on a host of decent scoring chances during a compelling first-half display.

CARMARTHEN produced another commendable display of determined, high-energy football to secure a well-deserved victory in a tough encounter against Rhyl, one of the tight-knit pack of clubs fighting for a top-six place by the end of the Welsh Premier League first-phase programme.

CARMARTHEN, despite having to endure significant spells of pressure from Airbus throughout this match, produced a thoroughly workmanlike performance full of energy and commitment to secure a hard-earned draw – remarkably, this was the first time in 18 games over six seasons that these clubs have shared the points.

IN an absorbing cup-tie Carmarthen twice came back from being a goal down before securing a narrow victory over Newtown with a scrambled third goal late in extra-time, a fitting reward after a highly commendable performance to which every player, demonstrating extreme fitness levels and an immense work ethic, contributed.

CARMARTHEN produced a highly spirited display to emerge with three invaluable points from this battle of the two clubs that were beforehand occupying the basement places in the Welsh Premier League – and while lively striker Liam Thomas looked to be back to his best with two clinically taken goals, Town were greatly indebted to experienced goalkeeper Lee Idzi who defied Newtown with a series of outstanding saves.
