CARMARTHEN eventually progressed quite comfortably to the next round of the League Cup although Goytre made the game competitive with frequent bursts of attacking football that demonstrated why they currently top the Welsh League averaging more than three goals a game.

JUST eight days after a narrow defeat at runaway Welsh Premier League leaders The New Saints, Carmarthen faced second-placed Connah’s Quay, the only other unbeaten team in the League. And while the margin of defeat was the same, the Old Gold’s performance was distinctly different – sadly, less impressive and tarnished by the dismissal of Lee Surman midway through the second-half.

CARMARTHEN went into this game after a sequence of impressive performances including a comfortable victory over Aberystwyth only ten days ago but any prospect of them achieving a similarly favourable result quickly evaporated once this match was under way.  Sadly, Town began poorly then gradually deteriorated before eventually plunging to a level of shambolic capitulation.

ONLY five days after undoubtedly their worst display so far this season Carmarthen travelled to The New Saints who, in their quest for a sixth successive Welsh Premier League title, have opened with eight consecutive victories, most by a comfortable margin.

CARMARTHEN produced another commendable display of determined, high-energy football to take a richly-deserved point off a strong Bangor side that has invested heavily to improve their squad pre-season and currently lie third in Welsh Premier League.
