Well Deserved Three Points For Seasiders

Llandudno Defeat Newtown At Giant Hospitality Stadium

In the opening few minutes Llandudno showed clear signs of taking control of the game, proven with Marc Williams having the first shot of the game, but unfortunately it was too high to give Llandudno an early lead.

Shortly after the visitors made an attempt to break away however the home side defended well and quickly took the game back up to the opposing sides half with some good football.

Llandudno’s pressure paid off when they opened the scoring in the 17th minute following a delivery in to the box from the left hand side before a shot is ricocheted towards goal for Tom Dix to smash home from 6 yards for his first ever goal in the Welsh Premier League. 1-0.

A clean break from Sam Hart almost instantly from Newtown’s kick off allowed for Llandudno to get their the second goal following a good delivery from the left hand sided player to Marc Williams who headed home! 2-0.

Llandudno continued to dominate the half playing good football from back to front and created several half chances in tough conditions, and were certainly unfortunate to not be up by more than 2 goals at the break.

Llandudno again started the game in control and looked set to continue their dominance early in the second half. The first opportunity came for Mike Williams following a header from a corner but he couldn’t quite direct it goalwards and it was narrowly wide.

As the second half played on the visitors grew in to the game but Llandudno were resolute when required and frustrated the opposition to keep the score at 2-0 for a long period. As the individual battles intensified around the pitch tackles were beginning to fly and Newtown’s Ryan Kershaw was given his marching orders for a late dangerous challenge on Lee Thomas.

With the visitors down to 10 men Llandudno still had a tough time on their hands with Newtown pressuring for a goal to halve the deficit, and they did just that in the 84th minute when an in-swinging corner was flicked on by Captain Dix and to everyone’s dismay nestled in to the bottom corner of his own net. 2-1

Newtown did well down to ten men to their credit but Llandudno held firm and deserved all three points when the whistle blew following three minutes of added time.
