Blues back to winning ways

Published

on

CWMAMMAN United got back to winning ways with a hard fought 1-0 win away at Llantwit Major on Saturday (Jan 19).

The Cwm management will be especially pleased with the victory having gone into the match with five regular first team players unavailable.

Cwm started positively and within five minutes the speedy Ryan Hurlow was through on the keeper only to see his effort blocked.

The game then settled into a pattern of Llantwit Major patiently building attacks while Cwm soaked up the pressure and retaliated with lightning speed attacks.

A blocked free kick from the edge of the box and a misplaced header saw a relieved Cwm come away quickly and a sharp Ashley Johns through ball saw Ashley Curtis’ steam through to see his fierce shot tipped over the bar by the keeper.

With Ross Morgan and the returning Ryan Thomas probing well the key moment came on 30 mins.

An audacious nutmeg from Hurlow was followed by a precision through ball to Ashley Curtis who calmly chipped the advancing keeper from 30 yards out.

This stung Major into increasing the pressure but with Johns and Nathan Mcneill really solid at the back Cwm saw it through to half time.

Sean Howells was booked early in the second half following a mid-air collision as Cwm battled to contain their attacks and Calem Rees and Brieg Matthews both playing out of position at full back were in no mood to give an inch.

Rees in particular was prompting attacks and Cwm had a couple of great chances with Curtis blasting over from the edge of the box and Chrissy Allen forcing a great one handed save for what had looked like 2 nil.

Cwm rang the changes and brought on new signing Ben Thomas, Rhys Morgan and Cameron Isaac to maintain the energy levels and Llantwit Major continued to press right to the end.

A superb save from Rob Wass Jones right at the end kept Cwm in the game and the Major continued to be wasteful in front of goal.

It was a great win with the hard working squad spirit of Cwmamman seeing them through at a time when resources had been severely impacted. On Saturday (Jan 26) they are away to Pontypridd Town.

WALES’ Six Nations match at home to Scotland on Saturday has been postponed due to the coronavirus outbreak.

The two other Six Nation fixtures had already been postponed and no date has been confirmed to complete the 2020 Championship.

The Welsh Rugby Union had insisted earlier on Friday the game would “go ahead as planned”.

A WRU statement read: “The Welsh Rugby Union has maintained an open dialogue with, and continued to seek advice and direction from, the National Assembly for Wales and other stakeholders, including the Six Nations, on this fast-moving issue.

“Whilst medical advice remains consistent, we have decided that it is in the best interests of supporters, players and staff to fall in line with recent measures taken across the UK and global sports industries.

“The WRU would like to thank all parties for their counsel on the subject and will make further announcements with respect to rescheduling the fixture in the coming days.

“Every effort has been made to stage this game and we appreciate that individuals will have been inconvenienced. Given the fluid and unprecedented nature of this issue a postponement became the only viable option.”

Static Bike Challenge

Published

on

Firefighters from Llandelio Fire Station took part in a 22-hour static bike challenge to raise money for Llandilo Rural Fire Brigade who have been tirelessly battling the devastating bush fires in Australia. LLandilo town in Australia was named after Llandelio in Carmarthenshire and the Fire Stations have maintained their connection over the years.

Seeing the efforts and the devastation of the bush fires in Australia and the work and dedication from the Firefighters to ensure their communities are safe, crews from Llandelio decided to raise funds by undertaking a 22 hour cycle on static bikes to represent the time it takes to fly to Australia.

On the 15th February 2020 at 3pm the challenge started! The firefighters were split into two teams of five, with each team taking it in turn to cycle for 30 minutes each throughout the 22 hours. This ensured that they were continually cycling and whilst still being able to provide operational cover. All this took place during Storm Dennis and during the challenge crews were called out to a total of eight incidents, one of which was a property flooding, during which crews rescued 6 adults and 2 dogs from a potentially critical situation.

Watch Manager, John Herman from Llandeilio Fire Station said:

“This entire experience has brought the two fire stations closer together, and after keeping in contact throughout this last few months, we look forward to continuing that connection for years to come!”

Over the two days, crews welcomed many visitors who came to show their support and donate money to the charity. To date the figure stands at £2,500 which is equivalent to almost $4900 AUD, and this figure is still rising with donations coming in from schools, town councils and public donations! Crews would like to give a special thanks to Llandelio CP School and Ysgol Gynradd Ffaifach who raised collectively over £800 for the challenge.
