Betws, playing their second match in four days following a midweek loss at Llandeilo, bounced back superbly to earn a much-deserved 14-15 victory over Amman United at a windswept Cwmamman Park.

With just a single win all season, the visitors still arrived in determined mood, but it was Amman who started as the better side.

It has been a mixed bag for the Reds all season, however, with some good performances mixed in with some mediocre ones.

Scrum half Alex Williams was again bright, while Tom Thorneycroft , Rhys Phillips, Craig Ratcliff and George Clarke worked hard around the pitch.

Amman were making far too many unforced errors, however, and Betws soaked up early pressure ,.

When they counter-attacked with their first real sortie into Amman territory, lock Macaulay Collins crashed over for the opening try.

Full-back Dan Thomas, along with Cellan Ingram-Jones behind the scrum, and Jac Jenkins, Cellan Jenkins and Morgan Evans up front, put in a good shift for Betws.

They increased their lead when number- eight and influential captain Gareth Comley went over for a second on 20 minutes - and outside half Josh Jewll converted.

Amman hit back when good pressure near the corner created the opening for Alex Williams to snipe over for the score.

Betws scrum-half Ryan Tancock continued his good season with another fine performance as the visitors went in at half-time 10-5 up.

But having played with a very strong wind behind them, would the lead be enough?

Amman lost Daniel James to injury, before centre Tom Caddell reduced Betws' lead with a penalty on 50 minutes.

He did it again on the hour to make it 11-10 as Betws began giving away some silly penalties.

Try scorer Collins was replaced by Anthony Drew, and it was his pinched lineout ball that put his side onto the attack, before replacement Justin Williams broke through for a third visitors' try.

Justin Williams' conversion attempt hit the post, with Jewell having been replaced just before.

Amman brought on Sean Cadell to bring on some much needed impetus and urgency, and Tom Caddell's long range penalty brought United to within a point.

But they were unable to further breach a disciplined Betws rearguard, which held out for a deserved local-derby win.

So, Amman end a rather disappointing campaign with a defeat - but Betws soldier on and face Furnace United at home this Saturday.
