Beaten By Ancients At The Rock
An Away Loss For Development Squad
Llandudno travelled to Druids on Sunday to face them for the 3rd time this season.
The game started fairly evenly with the first chance falling to Llandudno, a header from 6 yards just glancing the crossbar.
Further chances fell to the visitors after a goal mouth scramble, first Ant Marshall had an effort cleared off the line then the Druids goalkeeper pulled off a fantastic point blank save before the danger was cleared.
Druids were restricted to efforts from range with keeper Loui Harris rarely troubled.
The breakthrough came on the half hour as a delightful ball from Ant Marshall was brilliantly taken by Sam Thomas and he finished well to put Llandudno 1 up.
HT – 1-0
The second half started half with Druids probing and trying to find a way back but to no avail, Llandudno in fairness had chances to double their lead but couldn’t and were made to pay.
First good work by Ryan Davis set up Josh Jones for a tap in then a minute later a corner was swung in from the Dudno left and Matt Pritchard met it with a powerful header to put the host 2-1 up.
It was now Llandudno who were pushing for an equaliser, but it was to no avail and Druids ran out 2-1 winners.
A positive was the debut of Morgan Ashworth, now the fourth Under 16 to make his debut for the Under 19s.
