Neath and District Football Premier Division

THE Athletic welcomed Park Travellers and proved themselves overly hospitable hosts as the visitors went into a 5-2 lead before the interval.

The home side’s first half efforts came from Paul Sypliwtchak and a delicate chip from Thomas Jones which left the Park keeper no chance.

Athletic looked to bounce back after the break and huffed and puffed to put the visitors under increasing pressure as Thomas added his second.

But Athletic’s efforts were not enough and the Travellers grabbed two more goals of their own to see off all hopes of a home revival.

Ynys are home again on Saturday when they entertain Resolven (KO2.30pm).

Any player who is unable to make the gameis asked to contact manager Kevin Williams no later than 10am on the morning of the game.
