Thomas’ hat trick does the job for Old Gold 

CARMARTHEN TOWN continued with their impressive recent form on Good Friday (Apr 7) with a convincing display which left the visitors, who had previously beaten Town earlier in the season, a well beaten side.

The home side threatened as early as the opening minute when after a long run by Sam Parsons down the left, he found Noah Daley who ran across the box before unleashing a shot that flew just past the upright.

Town continued to press and in the 7th minute Liam Thomas latched onto a pass after good work by Greg Walters and Tom Dyson he raced across the edge of the box before unleashing a drive that screamed over the crossbar.

This served as a precursor for Thomas as in the 17th minute he completed a similar run which saw his 20 yard shot shot fly into the goal leaving the keeper helpless.

Not unnaturally Abergavenny tried to get back on terms and they were able to start building up attacks as they began to impose themselves on the game.

They managed to draw level in the 32nd minute when a deflected clearance fell to Ryan Lewis-Hillier whose first time effort from 12 yards left keeper Nick Jones with little chance.

The home side brushed themselves down and after another Daley effort that hit the upright Town were back in the lead in the 35th min when Walters climbed above everyone and headed home from 8 yards.

The second half saw Town’s defence of Jordan Vickers, Lee Surman, Trystan Jones and Sam Parsons snuff out any potential threat reducing the visitors to long range efforts. And with Bradley Gibbings and Will Rickard adding to Abergavenny’s woes with some sparkling football and shooting which kept Ethan Ross in goal busy.

The sometimes overstretched visitors held out until the 79th minute before Liam Thomas made the game safe when after neat footwork and a change of pace by Josh Gibson he slotted home the low cross from 6 yards out.

A mazy run past three defenders by Noah Daley in the 83rd min presented Thomas with a well deserved hat trick which he gleefully accepted.

Yet another impressive dribble by Daley a few minutes afterwards took him past three would be defenders only to see his powerful shot slam into the side netting much to the relief of a well beaten team who were glad to see the final whistle.

The Old Gold are next in action on Tuesday, April 18, when they travel to Trefelin BGC, kick off 7:30pm.
