Old Gold seal fourth place after beating Ynyshir

CARMARTHEN Town consolidated a fourth place finish in the Cymru South with this home win against relegation bound Ynyshir.

With five enforced changes in their lineup it took a little time for them to get into a rhythm during which the visitors having nothing to lose tried their utmost to open the scoring and a shot from the edge of the box by Joe Eason in the first few minutes drew a good save from keeper Nick Jones.

In the 8th min another raid on Town’s goalmouth saw full back Kallum Wilson put in an inviting cross into the box but evaded both forwards and defenders and rolled away to safety.

With Greg Walters, Tom Dyson, Lewis Rocke and Sam Parsons getting on top in the midfield area the tide began turning in Town’s favour. A defence splitting pass from Trystan Jones in the 33rd min saw Rocke racing in on goal but his chested effort ran away much to the relief of keeper Josh Williams.

With Town increasing the pressure on the Ynyshir goal a flowing move in the 40th minute saw Dyson win the ball just inside the visitors half, found the ever willing Jordan Vickers on the right and his cross found Liam Thomas who neatly wrong footed the defence as he slid the ball to Walters who gleefully found the back of the net.

The second half started brightly enough for Town and they doubled their lead when Harri Howells making his first start went round a defender before slipping a pass behind the defence for Lewis Rocke to finish with a low drive across the goal into the far corner.

Ynyshir for long periods in the second half tried to break through the home defence but saw Vickers, Ben Erickson, Trystan Jones and Efu Kazadi dealing comfortably with any threats on goal.

With the play now stretching from end to end Town were always posed a threat to increase their lead with their controlled possession play. Despite the prompted efforts of Walters and Dyson in particular further goals didn’t materialise and they saw the game out comfortably, thus ending the season with a run of eight consecutive undefeated games.
