Barmouth Away

April 11, 2017

Llanrwst Utd travelled to face Barmouth & Dyffryn in a confident manor, coming off two previous wins, with two clean sheets in those games.

They were missing Josh Francis, who is away travelling, Matt Beach (Family Commitments), and Gene Faulkes who was ill.


Barmouth's Wern Mynach pitch was in excellent condition, the grounds man is a credit to their club.


Aron Hughes and Luke Roberts looked lively in the early stages, both looking to run at their opposition as much as possible. The first real cut chance fell to Hughes, he jinked his way into the box and his curling effort was deflected narrowly passed the post for a corner.


The next chance fell to Shane Jones, the experience Forward found himself one on one with Christian Wright but the Rwsters keeper came out on top with a double save, the second was an extremely brave save as he dived low to his left, the ball smashing him in the face.


At half time, Llanrwst Utd made an attacking substitution, youngster Jac Parry coming on for Matt Mullender. However, it was Barmouth who took the lead. A long throw into the box, wasn't dealt with and the ball coming off a Llanrwst defender before ending up in the net.


The Rwsters weren't behind for long, Jac Parry and Sam Roberts combined well down the left and Parry's cross was met by Leon Doran at the back post, his volley gave the Barmouth custodian no chance.


Barmouth had a good spell of possession in the Rwsters half, Rob Murfet dictated play but Griffiths and Whiteley blocked anything that was thrown towards them.


The Rwsters pushed for a winner, Aron Hughes and Luke Roberts both coming close. A great ball by Sam Roberts was flicked on by Tom Casey, with Elliot Llewellyn running from deep, but he was brought down in the box, by the last man but the referee waved play on, a decision that left everyone at the ground flabbergasted.


Another chance fell to Casey at the final whistle but his left foot shot went inches passed the post.


Manager Barry Owen commented: The game was literally a six pointer today but it wasn't to be. We didn't take our chances, a story of our season so far really but the games come thick and fast now, and we will be looking for 3 points at home on Tuesday night.
