CARMARTHEN made the relatively short journey to Welsh League Division 2 side Ammanford knowing that progress in the Welsh Cup would provide a major boost to the Club at a time when Welsh Premier League performances, so far, have generally been so disappointing.

ONCE again this season – no goals scored and no points gained.  But, unlike any of the other defeats, the Old Gold this time produced a sparkling performance which fully deserved far better rewards and will have certainly delighted their supporters.

LAST season in the equivalent Welsh Premier League first-phase match Carmarthen deservedly came away from the Cyncoed Stadium with three valuable points that effectively ensured their place in the League top-six, meaning certain safety from any prospect of relegation.

WHILE the final result was a huge disappointment, by comparison with most matches this season Carmarthen’s performance against big-spending Bala was refreshingly entertaining and at the end of 90 minutes only a wonder goal, just before half-time, separated these two teams.

FOR the second successive match Carmarthen suffered the agony of conceding a goal in the closing minutes to deny them the draw that they had battled keenly to secure, this time against a strong Connah's Quay side which has remained close to the top of the Welsh Premier League since the start of the season, having finished runners-up to TNS last term.
