Battling Start For 1sts

Aberystwyth Exiles FC 1sts 3-3 Thornhill AFC

Exiles start campaign with a draw at the Llanrumney. Despite what was a strong opening half, Exiles found themselves 0-2 down after a string of saves from Thornhill’s Goalkeeper. With Dyper making his 1sts debut from the bench for an injured Keane and Pedder switching inside, they started the second half strongly, but again shipped a third and for period looked like their third match in six days would take a toll.

Exiles fought back again and after an Eastwood goal and T. Davies coming on, S. Phillips poked in a second and the tide had turned. An equaliser was found in the last ten minutes with Everett’s header but there was not enough time for a winner. Overall a point each was probably fair. Next up, AFC Gabalfa at Pontcanna on Saturday.
