Powerful pre-season win for Cwm

Published

on

ON an extremely hot evening at Grenig Park, Cwmamman took on an experienced Evans and Williams team from the Carmarthenshire League for a midweek pre-season match.

On the night needing water breaks it was a lively and positive encounter with Cwmamman coming out 6-1 winners in a warm up match well refereed by Wayne Neal.

A small but vocal crowd in Glanaman saw an exciting end to end match which was a great advertisement for the coming season for both teams with Blues Manager Ryan Stephens deciding to use all his squad effectively split into two different sides for each half.

It was Cwmamman, with the initial early pressure having successive corners and on the 25th minute Geraint Rees scored with a smart strike from 5 metres out and soon after Rob Morgans scored Cwm’ second goal with a superb shot from the edge of the box.

The first half finished with some strong attacking play from Blues newcomers Korey Palmer and Joe Lewis, 2-0 to the Blues.

The second half saw substitutions from both teams and Evans and Williams started strongly but on the 52nd minute new wingman Stephen Evans put Cwmamman 3-0 up and almost from the restart Blues playmaker Ryan Thomas scored a fantastic fourth goal with a lob of the keeper from way out.

Cwmamman number 9 Chris Allen then scored with a well worked goal to make it five, Cwm had scored three goals within 8 minutes and the Blues were now playing with great precision and power, thanks to experienced players Ross Morgan, Rob Jones and Luke Williams.

However, just after the hour it was Evans Williams pressure that resulted in a well worked goal for the Llanelli visitors, frontman Chris Bowen making the score 5-1.

Cwmamman finished the match strongly with Nathan Davies and Luke Williams almost scoring, but the strong goalkeeping of the Evans and Williams number 1 kept the Llanelli based team in the game until on the 75th minute Ryan Thomas made the final score 6-1 with his second fine goal. Overall a fine preseason game that showed lots of skill and energy from both teams.

The Blues First and Second Teams now travel away to Penrhyncoch on Saturday, July 27.

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.
