With Lon Bach still not ready following the recent work carried out and with a squad desperate to play, manager Andrew Wright took the brave decision to concede home advantage for today’s league encounter against Greenfield and travelled down the coast for a “home” game.
Things got off to a bad start when Wayne Edwards found room in the penalty area after only four minutes to give Greenfield the lead.
Shane Pell and John Earnshaw came close to grabbing equalisers with both shooting narrowly wide before Greenfield came close to doubling their lead through a Dan Henley was left unmarked at a corner only to put his header wide.
Tony Hogan blazed a Greenfield free kick over the bar before Amlwch went close themselves from a succession of set pieces. With seconds to go before the break, Greenfield’s Adam Price beat the offside trap only to see his effort hit the post and go out of play.
Edwards doubled the lead on the hour heading home from a corner before going on to grab a hat-trick ten minutes later slotting the ball into the bottom corner after being put through.
Danger man Edwards then came close to grabbing his and Greenfield’s fourth only to see his header hit the woodwork, but things continued to get worse when with ten minutes remaining, Ryan McKean got down well to save at the feet of Shaun Pritchard only for the ball to fall nicely for Tony Hogan to make it 4-0 and minutes later Keith Ainsworth completed the scoring in style from outside the area to make it 5-0 for the “away” team.
The Reserves also tasted defeat this afternoon in the league, going down 3-1 at Trearddur Bay Utd. Reserves where Gary Stewart scored a hat-trick for the hosts with Sion Wyn Griffiths grabbing the consolation goal.
