Seventh heaven for Reds against Albions

LLANELLI Town responded to their Good Friday defeat with an Easter Monday (Apr 10) thumping of Ynyshir Albions.

The result relegates Ynyshir from the JD Cymru South after just one season.

Despite their position, it was Ynyshir who took the lead in the third minute through Jacob Cross.

Hoping to avoid a repeat of Friday’s result, the Reds set about turning the game around and in the ninth minute they were level courtesy of Jamie Baker.

And just five minutes later the turnaround was complete, Jago Norton the unfortunate Albions player who sent the ball into his own net.

Brandon Griffiths scored a third for the Reds soon after and any hopes the home side had of making an unlikely comeback were all but eradicated on the stroke of half time as Baker added his second to make it 1-4 to the visitors.

Griffiths added a second shortly after the restart but Albions had not given up and Cross scored his second of the game to make it 2-5 in the 49th minute.

That was as good as it got for the home side and Griffiths went on to complete his hat trick with twenty minutes still to play.

With five minutes to go, Baker then did likewise with his third and Llanelli’s seventh of the afternoon.

After three games without a win it was a much needed three points for the Reds who now resume their quest to finish in the runners up spot.
