TRALLWM 1 - 0 LLANELLI
Trallwm turned on the style in defeating title hopefuls Llanelli at the zoo. Right from the kick-off the young tigers showed they were going to be no pushovers for the talented reds team. Tenacious tackling and resolute defending kept the reds attack at bay, whilst the midfield worked tirelessly in supplying chances for the hard working strikers.
The opening half saw the game flowing from end to end, with the large crowd kept entertained by some breathtaking displays. On the stroke of half time a deep cross from the left caused panic in the reds defence, and with the ball bobbling about in the penalty area, it fell invitingly to Nathan Vaughan, who blasted the ball into the net to send the home crowd ecstatic and send the young tigers in at half time with a 1-0 lead.
The second half was very much end to end football, but Trallwm were in no mood to let slip their one goal advantage, with some strong midfield play by Dale Rees preventing the reds from breaking through. Llanelli were finding it difficult to break down our defence, and realising there was no way through, soon resorted to diving, in an attempt to gain a free-kick. A typically irate Billy Morris started to make obnoxious comments to the ref (Big Rich). Billy was by now pulling his hair out (but then realised he didnt have any).
Then came the magic moment when Justin got the ball on the right wing, turning Wayne Hallett inside out and leave their number 4 (sidies) on the floor rolling in the mud wiping the dust from his eyes from Justins pace. But then like last week he took on 9 players and then kicks it to the corner flag AGAIN.
Our midfield and defence was like the Great Wall of China as the reds were like the leaning tower of Pisa (any time before collapsing). At this moment Billys veins in his head started to get frustrated and decided to pop out. There was one last throw of the dice for the reds as they gained a corner but the tower collapsed as the Great Wall of China attacked .Daniel Jones leapt among the crowd and cleared the ball along with Cerith Joness head. With 5 minutes to go Wayne Thomas tried his luck with the short Richie Thomas but no way was Richie going to allow that, by flying half way through the pitch and denying the reds an attack.
What a game to remember and cherish for the coming years. Everyone played their heart out for the tigers and all lead to a promising future.
