A LATE penalty saw Ammanford grab all three points in front of a very healthy crowd at the Recreation Ground against Goytre United.

The win means that Ammanford have now won their last six games.

Before kick off a minute silence was held in memory of Kyle Griffiths who sadly passed away this week.

The game got underway with Ammanford making the early running. However, it was Goytre United who capitalised in the 22nd minute of the game when a cross played across the Ammanford penalty area was turned in his own goal by centre back Nich Arnold to give Goytre the lead.

Ammanford gradually increased the tempo of their game in the second half and their reward came in the 57th minute when striker Craig Frater received a defence splitting pass from Mathew Fisher. Frater took the ball on and beat his marker to fire the ball into the roof of the Goytre net giving Goytre’s Goalkeeper Luke Probert no chance of saving it.

The game looked for all the world as though it was heading for a draw with Goytre still proving a threat coming forward.

However that changed in the 83rd minute when Ammanford were awarded a penalty. Ammanford striker Gavin Jones was brought down by Goytre midfielder Adam Jenkins, who was shown a red card.

Up stepped Ammanford’s Mathew Fisher and placed his spot kick into the bottom corner of the Goytre net sending the keeper in the opposite direction.

The ten men of Goytre tried to raise their game to try and get something from the game but Ammanford had the numerical advantage and were determined to hold on for the win.
