A Sneaky Pwllheli leave with a point

May 11, 2016

This was built as a must win game for both sides but this wasn't the case. A 2-2 draw was probably a fair result on reflection.


Pwllheli arrived at Gwydir Park with 12 men, with one of the 12 being Josh Banks. Josh is the current Left back of Cymru Alliance side Porthmadog FC. The team sheets were in and manager Barry Owen and Chairman Chris Williams were quick to point out to the match Referee that Banks wasn't registered to play. Pwllheli had put Jamie Banks down on the team sheet (who is registered to Pwllheli Fc) but Jamie Banks wasn't at Gwydir Park. Pwllheli knew they had been caught out and just before Kick off, manager Jason Jones knew it was too much of a risk to take and he changed things around. Banks was now on the bench.


The game started slowly, no tempo or quality as both teams struggled in the heat and on a bobbly surface. But the Rwsters did take the lead through Jamie Turner on 22 minutes. However Pwllheli equalised almost immediately as a long ball caught the Llanrwst defence too high and Lucas Baltovic slotted passed Roberts in the Resters goal.


1-1 HT Assistant Manager Jamie Williams and Manager Barry Owen said the first half performance wasn't good enough and the work rate needed to improve. The Rwsters tried to get the ball down in the second half and looked a lot more lively but Pwllheli struck again, a long ball forward to Marc Jones who beat Roberts and makeshift centre back Gwyn Jones to the ball and he slide the ball in. 2-1. Off came youngster Connor Court and on came Assistant Manager, ex Caernarfon Town and Llandudno winger Jamie Williams. His trickery and delivery causing Jason Jones and John Gwynfor Jones trouble at the heart of the visitors defence. On 82 minutes the Rwsters equalised, a fine individual goal by Ryan Watson levelled the scores but there was no further goals or notable action. 2-2 FT
