Llandysul’s hopes of challenging Costcutter League Division One leaders St Dogmaels for the title were severely dented after the Swallows – unbeaten since September 1 – crashed 2-1 at Llanboidy and Newcastle Emlyn also lost ground following a 2-0 defeat at Ffostrasol.

As their rivals slipped up, the pacesetters made it nine wins on the bounce by coming out on top 3-1 in a tight contest against Felinfach in the Aeron Valley.

Felinfach raised their game and held the Teifi Estuary villagers for much of the game, but they were forced on the defensive for lengthy periods and never seriously threatened a giant-killing act.

Ace marksman Louis Harding fired Saints ahead after six minutes but the Milkmen levelled from the penalty spot before the visitors regained the lead after 67 minutes when central midfielder Adam Williams blasted a 30-yard free kick into the top corner of the net and Harding wrapped up the points.

Llanboidy doubled up on the previous Saturday’s success against Ffostrasol with a hard-earned 2-1 win over Llandysul at Cae Dandre.

In a closely-fought encounter defender Fraser Wyatt netted the first goal for Llanboidy with influential midfielder and former skipper Dafydd Makepiece hitting the second.

Reigning champions Lampeter Town also made it two wins in succession as they experienced very few problems in springing an 8-1 win over visitors Aberaeron Reserves at North Road.

For the champions young Bryn Jones on his debut netted within ten seconds of being drafted on as a substitute and along with Gethin Hunter and Jason Jones bagged a brace of goals with the others sprung by Trystan Potter and Christy Gale.

Ffostrasol have blown hot and cold this term and it was one of their better days in notching a 2-0 win over visitors Newcastle Emlyn at Troedyrhiw Park.

Wanderers led 1-0 at the interval, the goal netted by Adam Jones after a good build-up and midway through the second period Iwan Jones picked up the ball on the edge of the penalty area and drove into the roof of the net.
