- AFC LLWYDCOED v CROESYCEILIOG 7/9/2019


 

The points were shared at the final whistle with six goals shared and there were some top quality goals in there.

 

 

 

The AFC Llwydcoed Management team of Matthew Driscoll and Lewis Holder were missing latest injury  player casualty Corey Leighton joining long term injury casualty Elliot Morris on the injury list.

 

 

The Llwydcoed ground playing surface was in excellent condition inviting good quality football and the hosts began in  confident mood.  Their movement of Jordan Ellis and Craig Williams brought Ross Daniels into play he in turn linked up with Cian Cable.  The Croesy defence were under pressure their young keeper Brad Eckley saving a Ross Daniel effort.  More pressure from Llwydcoed saw them win corner after corner but no finish and then finally they opened the scoring after more pressure Craig Williams scored from close range deservedly.  After this excellent opening by Llwydcoed Croesy rallied and they punished the hosts who kept on losing possession after a few warnings Nicholas McGrath stepped  into space and unleashed a top shot into the top corner, Croesy were on top and they punished Llwydcoed again who failed to clear the danger and Nicholas McGrath scored from close range, what a turn around.  Croesy almost added to their goal tally before the half time whistle blew.

 

 

 

HT 1-2

 

 

 

The start of the second half was only minutes in when Llwydcoed defender Liam Jones stepped forward and his long  range through ball was misjudged by the young Croesy keeper Brad Eckley and it landed in the back of the net.  What a start for the hosts they began to gain more possession through Lewis Holder, Jordan Ellis and Ross Daniels and the excellent Morgan Andrews who were threatening the Croesy defence whose Captain Jack Wellington rallied his players through this difficult stage.  Croesy's Alex Bonthorn and Jordan Jones kept the Llwydcoed defence on alert with their excellent movement and they won a free kick for a  silly foul and Alex Bonthorn struck the free kick  past the Llwydcoed keeper Brett Davies. Could Llwydcoed strike back yes was the answer, the movement  of Liam Jones and Cian Cable saw them win a few corners and from one Jordan Ellis scored a beauty so all to play for both teams introduced their substitutes Corey Roberts for Llwydcoed  Jack Sainsbury, Jack Sinderby and Taine Jones for Croesy.  The final quarter saw Llwydcoed start to build attacks the superb Ross Daniels striking the post with a top effort but both sets of Management and supporters had to settle for a draw,
