THE FRUSTRATION continues for Cwmamman United as they saw unbeaten table-toppers Cambrian & Clydach leave with the three points after an entertaining match that saw both sides create several chances.
The Blues started well and in the 13th minute as players appealed for a foul on the edge of the box the ball fell loose to Chrissy Allen who stunned the crowd with a perfectly placed curling shot from 30 metres out that beat the scrambling Cam keeper.
Cambrian are not on a 100% record for nothing and they soon rallied and, within 5 mins, a neat one-two saw Keetch equalise for them.
They were now counter-attacking quickly and Aaron Richards and Richard Brain were working hard to contain their wingers.
James Kirkwood in goal for Cwm was being kept busy but his strong positional play meant he was not being called to make many saves.
Another fine move for Cam on 25 minutes saw Sam Johnson make it 2 -1 and within another 5 mins, it was 3-1 as poor clearing by Cwm saw Reed put it past Kirkwood.
To their credit, Cwm rallied and Nathan Davies hit the post with a strong header and a great ball from Ross Morgan saw Sam Harrison break free and fire a thundering shot past the Cam keeper for 2-3.
Cwm started the second half well and in a strong 20 minute period created some good chances. Luke Williams, Allen and Calem Rees all fired over from strong positions.
The keeper made a great save from Allen and was grateful for a defensive interception from a deadly ball across the box from Rees and when another header hit the post.
Cambrian steadied the ship and then returned to their dominant style and in the 72nd minute saw the clinching goal from Corey Shepherd.
Cwm struggled to create the same pressure as earlier and Cam saw the last 15 mins out reasonably comfortably.
Cwm will be hoping to return to winning ways soon and travel to Briton Ferry for a cracking derby match on Friday evening (Sept 13).
Wales v Scotland postponed
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.”
Domestic football at all levels in Wales suspended
THE FOOTBALL Association of Wales has today (13 March) taken the decision to suspend domestic football at all levels in Wales with immediate effect until April 4 due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
The intention at this time will be to resume the football schedule depending on the medical advice and conditions from the relevant authorities at that time.
The FAW is fully aware of the impact this will have on the domestic game but the health and safety of all fans, players, volunteers and stakeholders are of paramount importance.
The FAW will continue to monitor this situation on a day-by-day basis and will continue to provide updates when appropriate.
Static Bike Challenge
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.
