Ceiber savour Welsh Cup Joy
Ammanford AFC 0
Penrhiwceiber Rangers AFC 3
Disappointment for Ammanford AFC and their supporters as they bow out of this season’s Welsh Cup after being defeated by a Penrhiwceiber Rangers team who were galvanised in their approach and deserved winners at Ammanford’s Recreation Ground this Friday evening (03/09/2021). Ammanford had started this Welsh Cup tie on the front foot as Ammanford’s Kai Whitmore, Liam Samuel, Tristan Jenkins and Lee Trundle all probed the visitors defence but couldn’t find a finish to match their endeavours. Ceiber’s defence stood firm and their goalkeeper Daniel Field was rarely troubled. In fact Field’s long range goal kicks were extremely accurate in finding their targets such as Ceiber’s centre forward Ricky Carter who showed his close control in his hold up play. As the first half was drawing to a close with neither team gaining the upper hand the ball broke to Ceiber’s Brandon Hill who found himself in space on the left hand side of Ammanford’s defence , he took aim and angled his cross shot at goal and watched the ball as it nestled into the back of Ammanford’s goal net. 0-1 Two minutes later the half time whistle blew leaving Ammanford to ponder their response to being behind whilst for the visitors it was more of the same determination as they had shown in their first half display.
The second half commenced and Ammanford tried to thread their passes through the visitors defence with Ammanford’s Leon Britton linking the plays. Half chances were being created by Ammanford but they just couldn’t find a way to break through the Ceiber defensive lines. In the 67th minute the visitors swept forward and Ceiber’s Joseph Jenkins got the visitors second goal of the game with a well taken goal. 0-2 Ammanford seemed stunned and as hard as they tried , they could not find a way back into the game. The Cup tie was finally settled in favour of the visitors when in the 87th minute a Ceiber counter attack was finished off when Joseph Jenkins got his second goal of the game and earned his team a deserved cup victory. 0-3
