Llandudno Junction v Meifod (FAW Challenge cup)
« on: October 18, 2009, 07:59:25 PM »
Managed to get to a local game at last, along with Ron, and most enjoyable it was.

Junction ended up 8-1 winners. Slightly scrappy start, but after the ref gave a pen after 12 minutes, commenting something like "That was a handball. You didn't manage to get any advantage so I'm bringing it back for a penalty." Rather strange :o

Claire Colville converted the penalty, and went on to score a second, with Orla Flood and Kaye Owen each getting a brace also. Michaela Stevenson and player of the match (in opinion of both Ron and myself) Stacey Tradewell also getting on the scoresheet.
Angela Jones scored from a penalty for Meifod, after a disputed call for a pull on a shirt pull on a shirt, but it was already 6-0, so was really all over by then.

Junction played some good football at times, too good for the visitors who deserved a bit more for their efforts, but one or two breakaways were foiled by Junction's keeper.
And Junction are the team in the next round of the competition.

The atmosphere was very pleasant and friendly; small attendance of around 25-30, but have been at Everton and seen only around 60, so can't grumble. Ron will be posting some pics in the next day or two - not sure if he'll include the one where the ball flew directly into the lens of his camera from the direction he was facing, knocking off his lens hood! The player apologised (although it was clearly an accident) - it was that sort of thing that made it a pleasant day (the apology I mean - not Ron's accident!) :)

Just one little addition; on a weekend where even supposed top referees were being castigated for not knowing the rules (eg those involving beach balls), neither the ref nor any players seemed to notice when a player casually passed the ball back to the keeper, who immediately picked it up, which should, of course, have meant the attacking side being awarded an indirect free kick within the penalty area  :D




The pic is Tytti Porkka of Finland - I actually took it myself, but have lost all my pics and have no more :(
