CARMARTHEN continued their promising opening to their Welsh Premier League second-phase programme with a valuable victory over Newtown in a match that genuinely was the proverbial “game of two halves”.

CARMARTHEN completed a very welcome and well-deserved festive double over old rivals Aberystwyth with a narrow victory that stemmed from a sensational opening goal from the most unlikely source – goalkeeper Lee Idzi. 

SINCE these two teams have been sitting at opposite ends of the Welsh Premier League table all this season, Carmarthen can be satisfied with having shut-out free-scoring City to secure a welcome share of the points – but their current position, well adrift at the bottom of the League, means that only victories can really make a difference.  And, sadly, at hardly any point during this contest did that seem to be a likely outcome.

CARMARTHEN, after a spirited performance against a lively Barry side, suffered just a narrow defeat thanks to some resolute defending and a late goal from substitute Liam Griffiths – but they were left to speculate on how much better the result could have been if they had not been forced to play the great majority of the match with only ten men once Lee Surman was sent off early in the first-half.

CARMARTHEN at last managed to avoid defeat at home in the Welsh Premier League this season at the sixth attempt with this well-earned draw against Llandudno although their mystifying inability to score goals (just a single penalty during that time) still remains.
