Match report by Ray Pearce Picture by Infinity Aerial Media (Alun Thomas) After an impeccable minutes silence to respect Aberdare stalwart Tom Williams, the home side were hoping to consolidate their good league position by gaining a double over Garw. Fortunately the early morning heavy frost had gone from the pitch and Aber attacked the town end on a crisp afternoon. New home 'keeper Dan Field anticipated well to claim an early away through ball with both sides creating attacks down their left sides. The visitors belied their lowly league position by harassing Aber attacks and countering at pace. 31 minutes saw a Garw corner not cleared and their first goal was driven home. Aberdare then shot wide from a clear chance before another Garw attack saw them rifle in a fine shot for 2-0 on 41 minutes. It needed a better performance in the second 45 minutes to retrieve the situation for the home side. However, their guests almost made it 3-0 early in the second half. Only a fine run and shot from Shay Welch on 68 minutes brought the Garw 'keeper onto action with a neat save. The home problems were compounded on 86 minutes when a quick away break saw them net their third for a well deserved victory. Obvious disappointment for all concerned with Aberdare while the visitors could enjoy their first away win of the season. A bad day for the home team and their followers after an unusual lacklustre display. TEAM: Dan Field, Jordan Jones (Sam Weston Sheppard ‘90), Shay Welch, Alex Adshead, Sam Weaver (Cameron McHale ‘80), Aaron Rowling (Jack Bethell ‘61), Leon Jacka, Josh Davies, Connor Berry, Dan Collins, Evan Olson (Cory Thomas ‘71)
