Heads were turned when the Costcutter League Division One result filtered through from King George V Playing Field in Cardigan where the unsung young Magpies caused a major upset in springing a 2-1 win over champions and J Emrys Morgan Cup holders Llandysul.

What has to be said straight off is that Town, without regulars Ben Davies and Emlyn George, thoroughly deserved the success after dominating for lengthy periods and coming from behind to grab victory.

Although it was essentially a first-rate team performance that carried the day, special mention should be made of Liam James, John Lumb, Callum Thomas and Ewan Jones who controlled the game virtually throughout.

They totally outplayed much lauded Llandysul midfielders Ian Barrett, Tony Maynard, Ben Thomas and Adrian Hazzelby which led to the villagers having very few chances and ending the 90 minutes a well-beaten outfit.

Llandysul went ahead during the first half when central defender Dean Jones moved up for a corner and headed powerfully past Steffan Marsden.

It was one of the few opportunities for the visitors as the Magpies soared and deservedly drew level midway through the second period when Ewan Jones broke down the right and crossed accurately for Llion Williams to bury the ball in the bottom corner of the net.

As Town surged forward it came as no surprise when they got the winner.

Aled Davies made ground down the left flank before finding Owen Williams whose square ball found Lumb in space and he drove a low shot past John Durbridge to the delight of his team-mates and supporters.

After Llandysul's defeat, Lampeter Town are the only unbeaten side having won two and drawn one game before hosting another unbeaten outfit St Dogmaels at North Road.

In a cracking contest that was a credit to the league both teams endeavoured to get the ball down and play constructive football and on the evidence of the full 90 minutes Lampeter just about deserved the verdict.

During the greater part of the opening 45 minutes play was confined to midfield with clear-cut chances few and far between.

The visitors were well served by Adam Williams who was a tower of strength at the heart of the defence while midfielders Rhys Jones, Dan Jones and Billy Myers impressed in midfield but were unable to penetrate a solid home defence.

It was a good-all round team performance by Lampeter who were at times forced to dig deep to repel the visitors but everyone in their ranks did his job to produce the result.

The all-important goal came midway through the second period when striker Jason Jones was pulled back by his shirt resulting in referee Meirion Evans having no hesitation in awarding a penalty.

Skipper and midfielder Terry Witts dispatched the spot-kick to seal victory for his side.

Newcastle Emlyn, who started with a rather unlucky home defeat against Llandysul sit on top of the pile on goal difference from Lampeter.

The Reds, who were a shade unlucky to lose their opening game against Llandysul notched three wins on the bounce before being held to a thrilling 5-5 away draw against Aberaeron Reserves on Saturday.

In midweek Emlyn turned on the style as 5-2 winners against Crannog at Parc Emlyn where Dan Jones bagged a brace of goals and the other marksmen were Dion Phillips, Dan Davies and Gethin Stedman. Jac Parry and Dan Robinson netted for the visitors.

The Teifisiders were forced to visit Aberaeron without five unavailable regulars but battled all the way in coming from behind to earn a point.

For the Black and Golds, who led 3-2 after the opening 45 minutes there were goals for Llywelyn Lloyd, Ollie Edwards, Lamin Manjang, Kieron Boyes and Rhydian Davies.

Craig Gordon got the opening goal for the visitors, Jake Kelly hit the second, Dion Phillips was twice on target and Ashley Summers made it a nap hand.

Felinfach won for the second time when emerging 3-0 winners overs promoted Ffostrasol at Troedyrhiw Park where the marksmen were Kevin Taylor who netted twice and Rhys James.

Cilgerran Rovers and Dewi Stars had been defeated in each of their outings before going head-to-head at Parc Y Dre where the rivals shared the spoils in a 1-1 draw.

John Williams was on target for the Coraclemen and Siencyn Jones replied for the visitors.
