Youth Cup Defeat For Llandudno
By Sam Williams
Wingmakers Progress At Our Expense
Llandudno entertained Airbus on a blustery, cold afternoon with a place in the semi final up for grabs.
The games between the 2 sides had been evenly contested affairs and the afternoon in Llandudno proved to be no different.
Llandudno started brightly and tested the Airbus keeper with efforts from Aron Hughes and Sean Mcaffrey, but it was Airbus who took the lead with a well struck shot from forward Ollie Lanceley. The score remained 1-0 to the visitors at the break.
HT – 0-1
Llandudno started the second half brightly and forced the visiting goalkeeper into a couple of good saves, and disaster struck after the hour as Harvey Ellis scored direct from a corner to make it 2-0.
Llandudno reacted well with Iwan Jones’ header cleared off the line and the rebound hitting the bar and being cleared. A deflected shot by the same player found it’s way into the goal as Llandudno finally got on the scoresheet but it was too late.
Frustrations boiled over at the end of the game, with Mcaffrey and Osian Jones being red carded along with a player from Airbus.
FT – 1-2
