Llandudno pick up valuable three points after comfortably beating Carmarthen Town

By Geraint Roberts

Llandudno picked up a crucial 3-1 win against Carmarthen Town in the first home game of Phase Two.

A brace from in form George Harry as well as a goal from TNS loanee Ben Clark was enough to give Llandudno their first three points since September’s win at Cardiff Met.

The victory means the club are just six points off safety, with 10th placed Cefn Druids playing Cardiff Met on Sunday.

After picking up a valuable point at Aberystwyth last Friday night, there was room for optimism after the team could have easily picked up all three points.

Llandudno dominated the early stages of the game against Carmarthen without creating too many opportunities though.

On the half hour mark, though, Llandudno did get their first real opportunity, and George Harry was around ten yards out to slot the ball past the ‘keeper to get his sixth goal in seven games.

Camarthen came into the game a little bit more after the opener, but it was Les Davies who had the next opportunity after he fizzed an effort just wide of the mark.

Just before half-time Llandudno were awarded a penalty after a foul in the box, George Harry was the obvious choice to step up and despite missing from 12 yards, he was ready to strike home the rebound to get the crucial two goal cushion.

Deadline day signings Yalany Baio and Sameron Dool made their full home debuts and have started off life well at the club.

Baio was booked just after the second half began for a coming together with a Carmarthen player.

On the hour mark, Llandudno were in dreamland after Dool found Tom Owens who whipped in a cross for Ben Clark to strike at goal which found the net from just over ten yards out.

With around 25 minutes to go, Carmarthen had their first good opportunity at Shaun Pearson’s goal, but Coultress couldn’t take advantage of the chance.

Five minutes later though, the away side did get one goal back, the strike from distance was cruelly deflected off Mike Pearson and left his brother Shaun with little chance of doing anything to stop the ball from going in.

Alun Webb came on not long after for Dool and had a good opportunity to put the game out of reach for Carmarthen but some last ditch defending denied both Webb and captain Danny Hughes.

Baio also had a chance not long after to get a goal on his home debut but it was cleared off the line brilliantly to deny him.

Toby Jones came off for Telor Williams in injury time, and Llandudno held on to claim all three points, meaning the club are now unbeaten in their last three games in all competitions.

Manager Iwan Williams was unable to be at the game yesterday due to personal reasons, but the lads did him proud by picking up the convincing win against a well drilled side.
