BRYN, under newmanagement, made light work of a poor Coelbren team, who lived up to their position at the bottom of the table.

The opening 20 minutes was a scrappy affair, with neither team settling into any kind of rhythm on a less than perfect playing surface.

After a fewearly scares, where Aled Thomas and Mike Eady had to intervene to save Bryn’s blushes, the homesters nerves were calmed when Dan Landek breached the visitors’ defence with a pinpoint looping header past the floundering Coelbren keeper.

With Tom Hurley and Chris Eady doing the donkey work in midfield, and Peter Windsor pulling the strings, Bryn settled into their usual passing style.

When the ball was played forward just before the break, a fine interchange of passes between the strike partnership of Landek and Scott Harris resulted in a fine finish from the latter.

He fired home his second of the game on the stroke of half-time to effectively seal the points for the hosts.

With the result beyond doubt, new boss Mark James introduced goalkeeper Dan Chippen for his first team debut.

With the result a foregone conclusion, the football on offer did little to raise the temperature and Harris failed to claim his hat-trick when he missed from the penalty spot.

Harris was replaced by comanager Phil Eady. He rounded off the scoring with a fine run and finish in the top corner.

Bryn are next due to travel to Resolven.
