Cymru Premier team Cardiff Met ended Ammanford hopes of progressing to the semi-final stage of the Nathaniel MG Cup with a comprehensive 3-0 win at The Rec on Wednesday night.

Ammanford struggled to cope with the pace and slick passing of the Met team early on, but Met were restricted to only a couple of clear-cut chances in the first half hour, Kyle Marsh producing one crucial save from Harry Owen in a one on one situation.

Cardiff Met eventually broke the deadlock in the 31st minute, Marsh unable to hold on to a shot and Sam Jones slotting the loose ball home.

Cardiff Met nearly extended their lead before the interval, Lewis Rees hitting the bar from close range.


Ammanford were restricted to few chances but came closest to scoring in the 56th minute, Mathew Fisher firing wide from a cross by Callum Silcox.

Kyle Marsh then produced an excellent double save to keep Ammanford in the game.

Cardiff Met scored a crucial second goal in the 61st minute, Harry Owen shooting low into the right-hand corner of the net following good work from Sam Jones.

Ammanford were struggling to get any foothold in the game and any hopes they had of a comeback were ended in the 77th minute when Sam Jones chested the ball down in the area, took it past Marsh and slotted into an empty net to book Met's place in the semi-finals.

Ammanford will now turn their attention to league action on Saturday when Swansea University visit the Rec in a Cymru South fixture.
