Briton Ferry Llansawel 3-0 Caldicot Town: Walkley double as Ferry move clear at top of Adran South

Briton Ferry began the year with a win as they saw off Caldicot Town 3-0 in the Genero Adran South at Old Road.

The visitors sat deep and narrow and were able to frustrate the reds for long periods of the half.  It took 40 minutes for the hosts to make break the Caldicot resistance when Laura-May Walkley got the only goal of the half.

The Reds quickened the tempo of the game in the second half and create lots of chances.  Witts and Walkley combining for the second goal in the 65th minute before Lowri Baker added the third in the 73rd minute.  Baker then hit the crossbar late on as the Reds looked to seal the game.

The win keeps Briton Ferry top of the Adran South table with a two-point gap over second placed Cascade and two games in hand. 

Alice Broadley had an early shot that see sent wide of the post.  That was followed quickly after by a curling effort from Walkley, but the keeper had it covered. 

Brooke Llewellyn tried a shot from distance but sent it wide as Ferry looked to make the breakthrough.

Broadley played a ball across the box, but Walkley was unable to reach it.  The ball went out to Ela Roberts who tried to put a cross in but sent it over.

Lowri Ridings headed at goal at the back post from Lucy Powell's free kick, but it was saved by the keeper.

Caldicot had their first chance of the game as a long-range effort needed turning over the bar by Courtney Young.

Ferry began to rump up the pressure as the half drew to a close with Fleur Jenkins seeing her shot saved and just after Ridings hit the post.

Witts brings down ball and plays it behind the defence for the run of Walkley.  Walkley coolly rounds the keeper and taps the ball into the empty net.

Walkley made her way to the by-line and got the ball across goal.  The ball went to Broadley who found Jenkins in the centre, she hit a shot that needed a strong hand from the keeper.

Jenkins then received the ball on the edge of the box and hit a shot towards the top corner, but it went narrowly wide of the post.

Denscombe and Ridings linked up down the right and risings sent the ball into the near post.  Fleur Jenkins got the ball but was unable to get a shot off.

Ferry pressure told in the 65th minute as a low cross across goal from Witts was turned in at the back post by Walkley.

Fleur Jenkins hit a fine shot from the edge of the box that the Caldicot keeper did well to turn onto the bar.  As the ball dropped Lowri Baker was fastest to it head in from close range.

Good ball into the box for Ella Smitham who tried a shot on the go and agonisingly saw it come back off the post.

Lowri Baker had a powerful effort at goal cannon off the crossbar with her effort from the edge of the box.
