Three first half goals for Llanelli Town left Ammanford with it all to do in the second half in this JD Cymru South league fixture.

The game could not have started any worse for the home team as the Reds won an early corner kick with two minutes played.

The ball was swung high into box and Llanelli’s Kyle Copp was first to react with an easy tap in from two yards out.

Worse was to follow for the home team when a Llanelli counter attack saw Copp play in team mate Zac Brown who calmly slotted the ball into the back of the net to double the visitors lead.

Ammanford’s first half misery was compounded when Brown netted a penalty before the break to make it 3-0.

The second half saw Llanelli increase their lead when Reds playmaker Jordan Davies squeezed the ball into the back of the Ammanford net from close range at the far post.

Ammanford did win a penalty of their own when Ammanford’s Brett Enoch was upended in the Llanelli penalty area. Luke Borelli stepped up and thumped the ball into the corner of net sending the keeper the wrong way.

Any glimmer of hope of a comeback was extinguished when Reds got their fifth goal through Kyle Copp.

Tristan Jenkins grabbed a late consolation, but Ammanford fell to a 5-2 defeat.

Ammanford AFC will travel to Haverfordwest County for their next game.
