Llanelli 0-3 Airbus UK Broughton (September 12th 2009)

For a long while this game trundled on in the warm Ceredigion sunshine. Airbus were rarely troubled and Aberystwyth appeared lethargic and devoid of ideas. Nothing happened in the first quarter other than a Glyndwr Hughes header over the bar for the home side. With the 'Bus suddenly realising the game was theirs for the taking they upped the pace and there was no coming back for Aber. Matty Cook engineered the opener, crossing for Ryan Edwards to drive the ball low and hard into the net, his first goal in open play and suitable celebration of winning his Welsh Non-League U23 cap in the week. 

The home side nearly fell two behind shortly after, 'keeper Steven Cann producing a great one-handed save off a Marc Lloyd-Williams scissor kick, turning the ball out for a corner. Jiws had another chance approaching half time, running through but for once hurrying and shooting too early, Cann saving easily. The second half was all Airbus, Aberystwyth having no answer to the midfield wizardry of Airbus' other new international, Ashley Williams or the stunning forward play of Carl Owen as they tied the Black & Greens in knots. Jiws was again clean through but once more failed to hit it hard enough and Cann saved. Cann somehow kept out an effort from Desormeaux. Carl Owen drove one in, the 'keeper fisting away one-handed. Ashley Williams started a great move that ended with Giovanni Feliciello bouncing one off the crossbar. Mark Allen clipped the ball goal bound from a corner, Cann tipping it over for a great save. 

Then came a goal the Airbus hordes will talk about forever; a fantastic flowing move that seemed to involve everyone, turning Aber inside out as the attack swept down the right like a red tsunami, swooshing back into the centre for Carl Owen to turn in at the far post as the away terrace roared in jubilation. There was just time for another. Gio fired in a free kick that seemed to hit an Airbus shirt; as the balled bobbled around Lloyd-Williams pounced, this time making no mistake as he smashed the ball in to round off a splendid afternoon.
