Another good crowd turned up at the Recreation Ground to support Ammanford after their midweek win over Briton Ferry Llansawel, but it was Taffs Well who came through for a 4-2 win in their Cymru South match.

The Wellmen took a deserved lead as early as the seventh minute when Marcus Jones curled his shot into the top corner, and the visitors continued to dominate.

It was no surprise when forward Jan Maertins doubled the lead when he pounced on a ball in Ammanford’s penalty area and took it away from the grasp of home keeper Craig Morris to steer the ball into an unguarded goal.

Lee Trundle saw his free kick from wide right narrowly sail over the crossbar, but at 2-0 down Ammanford had it all to do in the second half.

The second half couldn’t have started any worse for Ammanford as in the 46th minute Jan Maertins got his second goal of the game.

The home defence was caught flat-footed, despite appeals for an offside, as Maertins fired home for 3-0.

And it got even worse for Ammanford 12 minutes later as Jamie Owen curled his free kick over the defensive wall into the roof of the net.

Ammanford snatched a lifeline in the 75th minute when they were awarded a penalty for a push on midfielder Mathew Fisher, who had weaved his way into the box, and although Trundle’s spot kick was initially saved, he smashed home the rebound.

With minutes left, Tristan Jenkins skilfully jinked his way through the defence and drove in the best goal of the evening, but despite their determined late rally there was no way back for the hosts,

Ammanford are home again this Friday evening against Cardiff Met in the League Cup (7.45pm kick off).
