FELINFOEL and Calsonic served up a feast of attacking football in the game of the day in the Under-14 Division.

Hosts Foel raced into a 5-0 half-time lead thanks to two goals apiece from striker Iwan Roberts and midfielder Cane Davies. Calden John added another goal for good measure as Foel threatened to run riot.

To their credit Calsonic battled bravely in the second half and they scored four goals of their own courtesy of a hat-trick from Matthew Pritchard and a fine finish from Drew Evans.

Felinfoel eventually secured a 7-4 victory as defender Ryan Bowen and pacy frontman Adam Rowe added their names to the scoresheet.

A goal from winger Rhys Tiplady could not prevent Llangennech from slipping to a 3-1 defeat at home to Johnstown, whilst a fine strike from midfielder Curtis Richards provided scant consolation for Penyfan in their 6-1 loss against Teigrod Teilo.


Dafen marched emphatically into the next round of the R & B Under-14 Cup as they brushed aside Drefach 4-0.

Striker Shane Price had a day to remember as he scored a hat-trick, while Dafen's other goal came via left midfielder Ryan Evans.

Dafen were particularly dominant in the middle of the park, with Owen Williams and Ellis Richards both outstanding on the day.

In spite of a lively display from striker Ryan Morley, it was ultimately a frustrating day for Calsonic as they were beaten 8-0 by Ammanford in the Under-15 Division.

Bancffosfelen were left to curse a disappointing first-half display at high-flying Teigrod Teilo, who were 3-0 up at half-time thanks to goals from Steve Evans, Josh Martin and Dan Price.

Banc battled well in the second half to ensure that Teilo did not add to their first-half tally.

Wellfield produced a fine counter-attacking display to earn a 2-0 win at Ammanford in the Under-16 Division.

After withstanding long spells of pressure, Wellfield came more into the game and eventually took the league points on offer thanks to a double from striker Daniel Lloyd.

Keeper Hasaan Ikram was outstanding for a Wellfield side that will take great confidence from this win.

There was an 11-0 defeat for Hendy against Johnstown, but Seaside had an afternoon to remember in the D L Williams Cup as they battled back from 4-1 down to win 5-4 against Loughor in extra time.

In a thrilling cup tie, Seaside showed great fighting spirit, with their regulation-time goals coming via a double from winger Owain Goddard and fine strikes from midfielder Callum Dawe and striker Corry Thomas.

Seaside dominated in extra time and got their rewards when striker Thomas scored his second goal to record a deserved win for his team.

Tumble have enjoyed a fine run in this season's West Wales Youth Cup but they came up just short in round four as two late goals saw them beaten 2-0 away at Swansea side Landore Colts.

Dafen marched confidently into the final of the J H Evans Under-12 Cup as they comfortably beat Ammanford 5-2.

The Dafen goals came via a Louie Rees double along with strikes from Cain Maguire, Osian Dillon and Lenny Evans.

The win was all the more impressive as Dafen had to play most of the game with depleted numbers after Sam Saer was sent off early on.

Loughor provide the opposition in the final after they saw off Hendy 3-1 in the second semi-final. Trailing 2-0 at half-time, a Daniel Slattery goal had given Hendy hope of a comeback but they were eventually seen off by a strong Loughor team.

A fine goal from Mathew Davies could not save Teigrod Teilo as they were well beaten 5-1 by Pontarddulais in the Under-12 Division, and Calsonic continue to set the pace at the top of the Under-13 Division after they beat Llangennech 9-2.

Credit to Llangennech for a spirited display and they deserved their goals from Connor Morgan and Oliver Smith. Calsonic were irresistible at times and their goals came via doubles from Iwan McNab and Lloyd Weston and single goals from Jac Thomas, Marcus Edwards, Rhys Allati, Morgan Cutler and Sion Tiplady.

Burry Port remain in pursuit of Calsonic at the top of the league following a hard-earned 3-1 win at Camford.

Skipper Owain Williams put the visitors ahead before half-time and Ryan Owens extended their lead early in the second half. Corry Jenkins then reduced the deficit for Camford but a swift breakaway from the visitors led to Keenan Jones sealing the victory late on.

Elsewhere, Seaside fell to a 2-1 defeat at home to Johnstown, but there was better news for Dafen, who produced a superb second-half display at Llandovery in the Under-13s President's Cup.

Eray Wilson had put Dafen ahead at the interval, but the second half belonged to Asher Morris as he scored six goals as his team marched to a 7-1 win.
