Ammanford Town History

The club was founded as Betws sometime during 1945 and 1946, with its headquarters at the Coopers Hotel, when Mr Vic Grove donated the gift of a chicken for a raffle and from the revenue came the beginning of the club. Association football had been played at Betws in the 1920s by Ammanford Thursdays, made up of shop assistants who were only available to play on Thursday afternoons when it was half day closing at the shops. They played their matches on Caemawr (a council housing estate was built on this field in 1947). In the 1930s the Ammanford Corinthians, who were members of the Gwalia and Llanelli leagues, played on Betws Park. The first team and founders of the Betws Soccer club were known as the ‘Betws Blackbirds’. The first president was Sam Roberts, Chairman: D.R. Davies, Secretary: Robert Freeman and Treasurer: Joel Williams. The Trustees were Joe Lewis and Ben Jacob. Crad Jones and Vic Edwards were also among the early administrators of the club. In the early years the Betws Blackbirds were playing friendly matches, before joining the Ammanford and District league: they later joined the Carmarthenshre League. Matches were played on the present Rice Road ground, and their dressing rooms were in the old building at the rear of the Coopers Hotel. The Betws team had tremendous local support and the large crowds of followers turned out to watch every home game. When the club joined the new Ammanford District League their opponents included Folland Rovers, Cathan Stars, Tycroes, Waterloo Wanderers, Pontardulais, Brynaman, Pontyberem, Penygroes and Tairgwaith. One of the most remarkable features of this period was that sufficient finance was obtained to purchase the playing field. It is to the committee of that time that full credit must be given for their wisodm and initiative in negotiating the purchase of the field. Later, the adjoining land, which was used as garden allotments, was purchased. Today it is the site of the clubhouse; the price paid for the ground was £750. As the team continued to progress, in 1949 the need for a higher standard of football in the locality was put forward at a meeting of the Welsh league at Bridgend. The past performances of the disbanded Ammanford Corinthians, may have played a part in the election of the club to the Welsh League, where they played in division two (West). In 1952, the club reached the final of the West Wales Amateur Cup, narrowly losing to Atlas Sports, Fforestfach, 3-2 on the Vetch Field, Swansea. With Mr. Danny Finch as their manager the club finished runners up to Llanelli in the season 1957-58. The following season was very successful: on beating rivals Carmarthen Town on Boxing Day before a huge crowd, Betws became league leaders which they held to become champions and win promotion to the first division. They also won the division two cup, beating the champions of division two (East), Tredomen, at Rice Road by 3 goals to 2, Betws goal scorers being Idris Lewis (2) and Billy Abramson. The ladies supporters in their makeshift facilities in an old shed at the entrance to the ground provided refreshments at every home game. The dedication of the ladies supporters and their contribution to provide revenue and entertainment played a big part in the club finance. Along with the hard working committee members, there were many unmentioned helpers who all contributed in keeping the soccer flag flying. The club also provided a darts, tennis and cricket section. On Saturday 22 August 1959, the club played its opening fixture in the first division of the Welsh League at home before a packed ground against Cardiff City, whom they beat by 2 goals to 1. On this memorable day for the club, the Betws team was: Harrison, H. Williams, D. Jones, Lee, Scrine, Stead, Chennard, Lewis, T. Williams, Loftus and Abramson. Stead (penalty) and T. Williams being the scorers. By the end of the season, the club finished in the bottom half of the division and the following season being relegated. Name change There were other teams playing in the league under the name of Betws. In order to avoid the confusion over identification of previous seasons, a request by the Welsh League in 1960 resulted in the club changing its name to Ammanford Town. Through the loyal support of their followers the club, having built a clubhouse in 1963, expanded in 1967 by building a stand, changing rooms and showers at a cost of £4,000. In 1964, the club appointed Roy Saunders as their player manager, the former Liverpool and Swansea Town player. It was the time during his association with the club that proved its most successful. In season 1965-66 they became champions of division one, and the following two seasons became runners up of the Premier Division, to Cardiff City on both occasions. Now it could be seen that ‘the village beyond the river’ was really amongst the giants of Welsh league football. Local players in the town team were Mike Lewis and Ioan Rees who have given valuable service, whilst goalkeeper Dai Davies went on to play for Swansea, Everton, Wrexham andWales. In 1969, Roy Saunders left the club to take up a coaching appointment to Swansea Town. Upon the departure of Roy Saunders, Evan Powell took over as manager assisted by Myrddin Price as secretary. On the cup scene, the biggest day was in January 1991 when they played at home in the 4th round of the Welsh Cup against Wrexham. In atrocious weather conditions, ‘Town’ put up a gutsy performance but lost 5-0 to their more experienced opponents. Merger In the 1980s, with growing recession and the decline in the club’s fortunes with poor attendances, they did, for financial reasons, consider withdrawing from the Welsh League. However, the club were still members of the league at the end of the millennium having amalgamated with local Ammanford Athletic A.F.C. in 1992. During the 1998-99 season the club reached the quarterfinals of both the Welsh Cup and the Flocon Cup, securing a return to Division 1. In preparation for this return, joint team managers Neil Petherbridge and Wynne Jones assembled a team consisting mainly of local lads. They put into motion plans to develop the Rice Road facilities, bringing them up to modern day standards. New Success Despite dropping to the 4th tier briefly, Gruff Harrison has led the club to two promotions in recent seasons. Harrison took over after lengthy spells in charge from Phil Fisher and Craig Maloney, who Gruff Harrison was assistant to. Ahead of the newly proposed Tier 2 and pyramid structure as part of the FAW Pyramid Reform, Ammanford AFC set about constructing a 250 seater stand, perimeter fencing and floodlights ahead of the 2018-19 season, which was officially opened in October 2019.

LLANELLI TOWN AFC History The game of Association Football was introduced to the town’s people of Llanelly when workers from the Staffordshire area of England migrated to the town to work in the ‘newest’ of the town industries - the Pottery works from 1892 to 1920. The club initially played in the Swansea & District League playing their first matches at Cae Blake, Furnace, then the Peoples Park before moving to Tunnel Road and then at Penyfan Fields. In 1912-13 the club decided to become fully professional and applied for membership of both the Southern and Welsh League. They also moved to a new ground, Halfway Park, a former Cycle Stadium, which was situated two miles from the town centre. Their first season 1912-13 was an immediate success finishing in sixth position in the Southern League and third in the Welsh League. The following season they entered into the Welsh Cup and reached the final at their first attempt before losing to Wrexham in a replay at Oswestry after the team had initially drawn 0-0 at Swansea Town Vetch Field. After the First World War the club continued to participate in the Southern League and in the Welsh League with moderate success. They had ambitions of reaching the Football League and as a first step they moved to a new ground in Stebonheath in 1922 Tottenham Hotspur were the FA Cup winners of the previous season were invited to make the occasion of opening the new ground by playing the local team and the Londoners were given a rude awakening when they lost 2-1 on the day. For the next three years Llanelli built up a reputation of being one of the leading non-league clubs in the country, and in 1925 become the only club to contest every round in the FA Cup from Preliminary to Qualifying rounds and on to the equivalent Third Round of today when they met Fulham at Craven Cottage before losing by the odd goal in a highly emotional game. At the end of World War II with league football returning back to normality, Llanelly AFC in common with other Welsh clubs returned to the Welsh League fold and again gained a place in the Southern League succeeding Colchester United who had gained a place in the Football League. This was another venture into a league blessed with exFootball League players coming to the end of their careers. The manager of the time long servant Jack Goldsborough who had been a fixture in Stebo circles since 1923 as a player, trainer, coach, groundsman and secretary/manager assembled a team blessed in the main by ex Scottish League players including one John (Jock) Stein who was to find fame with Glasgow Celtic and Scotland in a managerial capacity after his playing days were over, but had made history in the FA Cup with the Reds in 50-51, before the club lost to Bristol Rovers after a 2nd replay at Ninian Park. Even he and a succession of worthy managers could not prevent the indifferent seasons the club suffered which meant a lack of people through the turnstiles and by 1958 they had to seek re-election to both Southern and Welsh Leagues. They were granted a stay in the Southern League whilst had to be relegated in the Welsh League Division II (West). But worse was to follow when the Welsh FA refused to sanction their stay in the Southern League.Llanelli were left in limbo with an all time low for their future for the 1958-59 season.


But under the astute managership of Wilf Grant an England B International, promotion was gained to Division One of the Welsh League. But when Wilf Grant went on to other climes Doug Wallace and Des Palmer became managers in succession without gaining honours. For the 1967-68 season brought Gwyn Grant (who had been a backroom boy for years after a playing career) to the hot seat and his achievements were noteworthy. Three Welsh League Championship titles in 1970-71, 1976-77 and 1977-78 inspired by Gilbert Lloyd followed, but the club’s ambitions of a higher grade of football were always denied. With the advent of the League of Wales in 1992-93 season when they became founder members. After an initial successful season the club fell away once more, and again due to financial constraints they were relegated in season 1995-96. However, the advent of Robert Jones to the club as owner and Chairman saw the club take on a new lease of life. First Dudley Lewis as player/manager set the seeds in motion and Robbie James took over in consecutive years but in February 1988 Robbie James tragically died at Stebonheath playing against Porthcawl. His place was taken over by Leighton James who gained promotion for the club once more to the League of Wales by virtue of their ending as runners-up to Champions Ton Pentre who had declined promotion. After one season when the club ended in a creditable fifth position he suddenly resigned and it all turned sour by 2002-03 when the club was relegated to the Welsh Division 1 once more. In season 2003-04 saw the club regain their rightful place in the Welsh Premier League under the management of ex/players of yester year Neil O’Brien and Lee Randall. Season 2004-05 saw firstly Eddie May followed by Nick Tucker took over the helm and he managed to stave off relegation at the end of the season. During the close season the club which had been ‘up for sale’ was taken over by the Jesco Group, who decided that the club needed to turn fully professional once again after half a century of lack lustre competition except for the Welsh League Championships of 1970-71, 76-77, 77-78 seasons. Spaniard Luca Cazorla become Director of Football and six Spanish players arrived at Stebonheath Park. But by Christmas something was adrift and Luca Cazorla left by mutual agreement with Peter Nicholas assuming control, achieving for the club for the first time in their history a position in the UEFA Cup after gaining 2nd spot. The following season 2007- 08 was one of success becoming League Champions and winning the League Cup. In season 2008-09 their Championship hopes were high but they ended in the runners up spot the biggest shock was to come before the season’s end when the tenure of Peter Nicholas was ended after five years at the helm, his contract was not renewed and Andy Legg was appointed to the ‘hot seat’. Season 2010-11 Legg saw his Reds side lift the coveted Welsh Cup with an emphatic 4-1 win against League Champions Bangor City at Parc y Scarlets and won the play-offs in 2011-12 beating Bala 2-1 in the final. This proved the last game for prolific striker Rhys Griffiths, who had scored 280 goals in 281 games. The club has also enjoyed extraordinary success on the European frontnbeating Gefle, FK Vetra, Ventspils, Motherwell and Dinamo Tbilisi, although only the win against Gefle saw the club progress over two legs. Season 2012-13, started with the club coming agonisinlgy close to reaching the second round of the Europa Cup, losing 3-2 to Kups. Financial trouble then hit, with Andy Legg leaving in October 2012 and Bob Jeffrey taking over in a vast cost cutting exercise. However the club was unable to stave off HMRC and were sadly liquated in the High Court in London on 22nd April 2013, before reforming as Llanelli Town AFC this summer and joining Welsh League Division Three for season 2013-14. In the 2013-14 season, Llanelli Town finished 6th in Welsh League Div. 3, the following season they finished as Champions being promoted to Division 2 for season 2015-16 which they finished 7th. For the 2016-17 season Andy Hill returned to the club as Manager and they won the double Div 2 and League Cup winners. 2017-18 they won the Div. 1 Championship which saw them promoted to the Welsh Premier League for the 2018-19 which unfortunately they finished bottom of the league and were relegated back to the new Cymru South League for the 2019-20 season.

Match Report TAFFS WELL 1 LLANELLI TOWN 3 A first half Liam Samuel goal and two more by Tim Parker in the second eased the Reds through to another win at Rhiw`r Ddar and back to the top of the table, but it was far from being a convincing performance overall. If their opponents had accepted numerous chances to put the game safe in the opening forty five minutes they would probably have gone on to claim the points, but somehow the visitors goal survived, and ultimately the Wellmen were made to pay for their wastefulness. The most frustrating aspect when following the Reds is their inconsistency from one game to the next, and this latest outing was a case in point, with the midfield almost non-existent, and some poor decision making on the part of players when presented with options. They found themselves trailing as early as the 8th minute when an attack down the right flank by their opponents led to a flighted ball into the middle which saw both Scott Coughlan and Lee Bevan attempt to clear, but they failed to do so effectively, allowing it to find its way to the far post where Jordan Carey was on hand to sidefoot it into the net. In reply, the nearest the Reds came was when Zac Brown fired over the top of the home goal when Joe Clarke set up the chance, but they just survived another break by their opponents when Richard French connected with a close range attempt which he directed narrowly wide. Offering little in the way of an attacking threat, the Reds somehow levelled matters on 19 minutes after Parker did well to rescue a seemingly lost cause deep inside the Wellmen`s penalty box before laying a pass into the path of Samuel, and he curled a sweet finish beyond Tomas Bodger in the home goal. Stung by this unexpected reverse, the hosts pressed forward, and attempts by both Sam O`Sullivan and French almost brought their rewards. On 35 minutes, they then suffered a double blow when Bodger was injured saving at the feet of Samuel following a run into the area, while Aaron Garrett was also forced off, with Luke Davidson and Laurent Mondo replacing them respectively. This disruption did little in the way of preventing the Wellmen from still dictating matters, and Coughlan was called into action to turn over a fiercely struck shot by Mondo, but the break arrived with the Reds still somehow on level terms. It was patently obvious from their first half display that changes were needed by the visitors for the second period if they had any hope of getting something out of the contest, and they duly arrived with the welcome return of Jordan Davies after his injury lay-off in place of Kyle Copp in midfield, while Nathan Logan was introduced to provide attacking options instead of defender Chris Thomas. In addition to the newcomers, the shape of the team was also revamped, and these changes certainly saw a huge improvement to the overall play, and it was the turn of the home side to come under some serious pressure. Davies blasted an early chance over the top when he met a rebound from the initial attempt by Samuel, but it was not entirely one-way traffic as a mazy run by Jack Fox culminated in both Dylan Jones and Mondo becoming involved before the latter skimmed the bar with his finish. As the half progressed, the Reds were showing distinct signs that any further goals would come from them, and so it proved as they eased into the lead in the 63rd minute following a break by Samuel which led to an initial effort being blocked on the line, but the ball fell kindly to Parker who steered it home from close range. Now well on top and dictating play, the visitors almost struck again when Logan was fractionally away from connecting with a James Loveridge cross driven in low to the far post. Parker had a further attempt smothered by the keeper at his near post, but had better luck on 77 minutes when he bagged his brace, rising high above the home defenders to head home a well flighted delivery by Logan. With six minutes of normal time remaining, the Wellmen suffered a further setback with the dismissal of captain, Jacob Matthews, by referee Teifion Cook for a second caution after he fouled Parker in the box, leading to the award of a Reds penalty. Clarke took the kick and easily netted, only for it to be disallowed for encroachment into the box by Reds` players and the award of a free kick to the home side. Despite this, the visitors eventually ran out winners.

SUPPORTERS CLUB

Chairman Mike Hope Vice Chairman Craig Francis Treasurer Alex O'Brian Secretary Paul Smith Committee Rob Killick, Rob Matthews, Richard Killick, Dave Allen,

The main aim of the supporters club is to raise funds for the football club. Last season we were able to help the football club in a number of areas to the total of just over £5500. The committee worked hard to raise this money in a number of ways. This season we will be trying to help the football club in any way it asks us too. We use the money raised from the Golden Goal before the home games and football scratchcard after the game plus membership fees and profits from merchandise sales to do this. We will also be holding fund raising events this season, details of which will be released soon. Membership fees for this season are £5. You can also purchase a loyalty card from Stebonheath Sports Bar for £5. A percentage of every £1 you spend (on non match days) will be given straight to the supporters club. If you have any ideas or wish to join the supporters club committee please speak to any of the committee members listed above. Michael Hope Supporters Club Chairman
