Reserves unlucky in defeat

The Reserves narrowly lost to Rhayader on Saturday after 6 weeks with no game

Their last game was another narrow defeat at home to Berriew on 5th February, 6 weeks ago so Saturday was always going to be tough to get going.

And Llanfair's lack of game time proved costly early on when Rhayader took the lead through Sam Crumpton.

Early in the second half, Llanfair equalised through a great long range effort by Dan Morgan from outside the area.

Llanfair were dealt a blow minutes later when goalkeeper Liam Rowlands had to be substituted after picking up a nasty neck injury. Chris Humphreys deputised in goal and pulled off a number of saves to keep Llanfair in the game.

Unfortunately, the game was decided by a Callum Evans own goal, not being able to do much off a rebound as the ball struck him and went into he empty net from close range.

A good performance by our youngsters, the average age of which was 20 years old!
