JD Cymru South: Weekend Round-Up

It can take something special to deny Barry Town United, so step forward former Swansea City striker Lee Trundle.

He may be 46 years old but the old goalscoring instincts are still there as Trundle proved when he forced home the equaliser for Ammanford United to earn a 1-1 draw at the JD Cymru South League leaders.

Lee Kendall’s Barry were ahead in the sixth minute through Luke Cooper’s goal, but they were frustrated following Trundle’s equaliser two minutes after the break when he netted a penalty rebound.

Trundle – whose first effort was saved – admitted: “My penalty record for Ammanford is really, really bad. I’ve missed a few!

“So, I asked who’s going to take this one and no-one stepped up. So, I thought I’d better take responsibility. The keeper saved it, but it came back to me and I managed to put it in.”

Trundle might even have won the game late on, when in trademark “Magic Daps” style he chested the ball down and produced an outrageous overhead kick that almost found the net.

“It was close, but to get a draw at the leaders is massive for our lads’ belief and shows that we can go and get points from these big games, so it was important,” added Trundle.

Second-placed Briton Ferry Llansawel cut the gap at the top to nine points as they won 2-1 at bottom club Ynyshir Albions thanks to two goals in two first-half minutes from Tom Walters.

Scott Jones responded with a penalty for the hosts before the break, but the basement boys couldn’t prevent a 15th defeat of the season.

That victory for the Ferry sets things up nicely for Friday night, when they host Barry in a showdown between the top two.

Llantwit Major won 1-0 at Trefelin as Matthew Kimmins’ 61st-minute goal was enough for victory, despite an early red card for his team-mate Nathan Evans.

Swansea University also drew 0-0 with Goytre United.

On Friday night, Abergavenny Town won 2-0 at home to Pontardawe Town, while Llanelli Town were 1-0 winners at Afan Lido.

Llanelli stay third in the table, seven points behind Briton Ferry, but with two games in hand.

Cwmbran Celtic romped to a 5-1 victory at Taffs Well with Celtic striker Lewis Iles scoring four.

The win pushes Cwmbran up to eighth, above Taffs Well, who have played three games more.
