Goals Galore for the Rwsters

November 10, 2016

The Rwsters travelled to Llanberis full of confidence as they had won the previous 3 games, although they were missing a few regulars from the previous few weeks.
Player manager Barry Owen picked up a knee injury in training on Wednesday night, Captain Leighton Griffiths was away in Scotland and Elliot Llywellyn and Gene Faulkes were still suspended.
This resulted in the team changing from previous weeks.
   The ever present Barry Jones started on the bench after suffering a dead leg in the 1-0 win against Barmouth & Dyffryn, meaning Josh Francis had an opportunity to make his first start for a month. 16 year old Aron Hughes also started, taking the place of fellow youngster Jac Parry in the starting lineup.
   With 4 minutes played, a foul on Hedd Williams gave the Rwsters the first chance to test Louis Williams in the 'Beris' goal. A perfect free kick by Alun Roberts found Paul Cassidy 12 yards from goal who calmly slotted the ball to the keepers right hand corner.
   Things were to get better on 14 minutes, This time it was Hedd Williams with an assist, his cross was met with purpose by Josh Francis who volleyed the ball in to the back of the net.
    This seemed to wake Llanberis up but they were finding it hard to break down a stubborn Rwsters defence. But on 34 minutes, Gethin Evans did get a goal back for 'Beris' as he was quickest to react in the 6 yard box.
   Matt Mullender gave away a cheap freekick on the edge of the box soon after 'Beris' scored, and up stepped Guto Llywelyn who nearly punished the Rwsters but he could only clip the top of the cross bar with his effort.
   On 38 minutes, youngster Aron Hughes who was making only his second start for the 1st team scored his first goal in the Welsh Alliance. Neat play between Callum Parry and his fellow striker, seen Hughes through on goal and he calmly chipped the on rushing keeper to make it 3-1. HT.
   It was more of the same for the Rwsters in the second half, but chance after chance went begging as 'Beris' defended for their lives, Nathan Williams with a few last gasp tackles.
   Another Alun Roberts dead ball caused mayhem in the box and a powerful header by Matt Mullender found the back of the net.
  A Gerard Laidlow effort was smartly saved by Wright in the Rwsters goal to ensure Llanrwst would leave with all 3 points.
Barry Owen said:
  "Llanberis are always a strong side who never give up. The lads knew we were in for a tough afternoon but I thought we dominated the game and fully deserved the 3 points"
Llanrwst Utd don't have a fixture next weekend the 12th of Nov due to international games.
