Ammanford AFC Reserves continued their winning run and their free scoring start to the season int today’s game against Johnstown FC, as they ran out 8-0 winners in the Carmarthenshire League Division One.
Ammanford’s Nathan Jones and Centre back Ryan Foschi had complete control of possession at the back and were able to support their front runners. Chance after chance was being created by the Ammanford midfield and attack.
Ammanford’s wide man Bruno Forkuoh was seeing plenty of the ball and weaved his way in out of the Johnstown defence but could just not find that final goal touch. Ammanford’s midfielder Alexander Arnold was finding space inside the visitors penalty area and again he could not find that final touch to open the scoring.
The Johnstown Goalkeeper was also playing his part in frustrating the Ammanford attack as he showed his agility in making some fine stops.
As the first half was nearing its end, it was Ammanford’s Grant Stamp who broke free and slotted the ball into the Johnstown net. 1-0.
Soon after, Ammanford’s Nathan Jones doubled their lead with a powerful driven shot that rocketed into the back of the Johnstown net 2-0.
The second half got underway and it followed the pattern of the first half with the home side completely dominant. Both teams and referee also had to contend with torrential rain as the afternoon went on.
It was Ammanford’s Alexander Arnold who finally got his name on the scoresheet, before he added his second of the afternoon soon after.
The visitors added to their woes when they conceded an own goal.
Worse was to follow for Johnstown as Ammanford’s forward Bruno Forkouh’s took his turn to hit the goal train. He hit a second half hat trick which included a close range shot squeezed into the net at the near post. Bruno then got his head onto a cross and powered the ball into the roof of the visitors net to double his tally, before the winger rounded his afternoon off by converting from the penalty spot.
The game concluded with Ammanford running out 8-0 winners, but in the adverse weather conditions Johnstown made Ammanford work hard for what was a convincing victory come full time.
