Match Report Harlech v Llangollen 13th May 17

End of season blues for brave castle men

Swalec League division two North play off Match Report Saturday 13th May 2017

Llangollen 25 - Harlech 15

Harlech finally brought down the curtain on a hard long season with a narrow 25-15 defeat at Llangollen. However last time Harlech faced Llangollen it was the castle men who came out on top by securing a  42-17 home victory

Although Harlech this time made the best start courtesy with an unconverted Carwyn Jones try but however their lead was short lived as Llangollen replied courtesy of a converted try scored by centre Scott Leckie, and straight from the restart  Llangollen opened up a nine point lead courtesy of a converted try scored by Llangollen fullback Kieron Davies and then soon afterwards Llangollen flanker Ashley Wilson was successful with a penalty kick to open up a twelve point lead and then just on the stroke of half time. Llangollen flanker Ashley Wilson was successful with his second penalty kick to leave an interval score line of Llangollen 20- Harlech 5.

However the castle men could have easily have scored the first points  of the second half as the influential Llion Kerry set off on a barnstorming run, but just a few minutes later the castle men  respond with a courtesy of a converted Ben Cartwright try and hence a just a few minutes later the castle men  was again awarded a penalty kick after Llangollen infringed  Castle men outside half Dion Jones was successful with a penalty kick. However  any hopes of a dramatic late castle men evaporated  when Llangollen flanker Ashley Wilson went over for an unconverted try to leave a full time score line of Llangollen 25 - Harlech 15.

It was a rather disappointing end to Gareth Lewis reign as club coach, however, the club wishes him the best of luck in the future and our team will be echoing again the words of Men of Harlech (Ceiriog version) for the new season to come;

Wele goelcerth wen yn flamio

A Thafodau tan yn bloeddio

Ar i’r dewrion ddod i daro

Unwaith eto’n un
