Welsh League Division One

Ammanford - 1

Cwmamman United - 1

With two red cards, it made for a fiery encounter as the two sides raised funds for Paul’s Pledge to celebrate the work done by Paul Pugh in front of over 300 people.

It was Ammanford who enjoyed the lion’s share of possession in the first half, but struggled to register any real threatening effort on Chris Curtis’ goal.

Richie Lewis and Brett Enoch linked up well, but the former’s early shot was a tame one.

Cwmamman offered less of a threat in the first half, but pacey wide-man Ryan Hurlow darted through on goal, but an expertly timed last ditch tackle by Nich Arnold denied the attacker before he could get a shot off.

Liam Samuel set up Alfie Stottor after the half hour mark with a delicate chip, but Stottor couldn’t get a clean strike on goal.

Christian Allen, who led the away side’s frontline, had two half chances before the interval as he volleyed wide after chesting down a diagonal free kick and firing wide before his diving header was held with ease by Craig Morris.

After the break, tenacious midfielder Dale Jones was given his second yellow card, but in the aftermath, Cwmamman attacker Brieg Matthews was given his marching orders as both sides were reduced to ten men.

A tactical switch saw Hurlow attacking down the right in the second half, and it paid off as when Morris hesitated to collect the ball, Hurlow pounced to give the visitors the lead.

Nick Glendon offered the away side a golden opportunity to seal all three points as he earned a penalty for his side, but Morris dived low to his right to save the resulting spot kick.

The miss proved crucial, as with 10 minutes remaining, Craig Frater missed a one on one, but Samuel fired home the rebound as the two sides shared the spoils in an entertaining derby.
