Llanberis v Rwsters

June 4, 2016

Llanberis Away Llanrwst Utd travelled to Llanberis knowing a point would all but guarantee them safety for another year in the Welsh Alliance Division 1 After the impressive performance two days earlier against Gwalchmai (4-0 win) manager Barry Owen had Ciran Jones and Aled Stapleton available, along with veteran Bryn Jenkins.

 

On a sunny evening at Lon Padarn, Llanrwst were forced in to a couple a changes. Alan Roberts (hamstring) meant he was on the bench, in came Aled Stapleton for his first start for the club, on the right side of midfield and Elliot Llywelyn moved inside. Llanrwst started brightly, the pace of Aron and Sion Jones causing problems in behind Llanberis defence. However Llanberis always looked dangerous from set pieces. On 36 minutes, the height advantage for Llanberis became vital. A powerful header from Llion Jones from a corner went straight past the helpless Roberts in the Rwsters goal.

 

Llanrwst were a different opposition in the second half, The importance of Leighton Griffiths was essential as Griffiths won almost everything and his experience carried the Rwsters. Aled Stapleton scored another important goal on 49mins, a neat finish after great work by youngster Callum Parry down the left. An injury to Sion Jones delayed the game for 6 or 7 minutes, Luke Roberts coming on to replace him. Luke was straight in to the action. A fine run down the left, caught Llanberis cold, but what looked like an over hit cross, the lively Aron Jones did what all good strikers do, he anticipated the keeper would miss it and he tapped the ball in to an empty net. 1-2. Credit to Llanberis, they threw everything at the Rwsters, Griffiths and Roberts in goal always dealt with everything, but on 88minutes, Rhys parry acted quickest to a confusion in the 6 yard box and he smashed the ball in. 2-2. Llanrwst Utd now travel to Gwalchmai on Saturday for the last game of a very long season.
