Saturday 30/12

A large holiday crowd enjoyed a very competitive local derby which the home side won with a spectacular goal by former Borth player Ben Jones.

Bow Street took an early lead when Mark Gornall took a quick free kick and Garmon Nutting controlled the ball superbly and beat the goalkeeper. Despite huge amounts of possession, and numerous opportunities the home side were unable to add to their lead. The same pattern followed in the second half but with 25 minutes to go, on a rare foray in to the visitors’ penalty area, James Davies equalised for Borth following a defensive mix up.

The last twenty minutes saw huge amounts of pressure from the home side and with five minutes left a sublime move involving many players was finished by a spectacular finish by Ben Jones for what was a deserved but hard-fought win.

Manager Barry Williams said, ‘We almost paid for not taking our chances again. But delighted to have come through in the end and it was brilliant for the boys to play in front of such a large crowd’.
