An Ammanford AFC will be shown live on TV for the first time in the club’s history when they face Carmarthen Town in the JD Welsh Cup on Friday 6th December.
The Carmarthenshire derby was pulled out of the hat for Round 3 of Wales’ oldest Cup competition, a repeat of the draw made in 2016/17 which was played in front of a crowd of over 400 people at the Recreation Ground.
However, the two clubs are set to face off again in this year’s edition of the competition, after Ammanford defeated Ton Pentre in Round 2 last Saturday.
Carmarthen won the last fixture 3-2 at the same round of the competition, which was the first time the two clubs faced off since 1991, when the Old Gold also came out on top 3-2.
That was the second time the two clubs had faced each other in the cup in 3 years, after the Black and White Army overturned the Cymru Premier side in the 2nd Round in 1989/90, before the Town were knocked out by Llanelli in the next round.
However, this year’s clash sees even more narratives emerge with Kristian O’Leary having just taken over at the helm of the Cymru Premier club, as he prepares his side to go up against an Ammanford side featuring two of his former team-mates Lee Trundle and Andy Robinson.
The game has now been brought forward to Friday evening, as Gruff Harrison’s men prepare to go in front of the TV Cameras for a live match for the first time in their history with a 8pm kick off.
Contact the club directly if you would be interested in booking your seat on the away day bus to Richmond Park on 6th December for the cup clash.
