Old Gold stun Saints at Park Hall

CARMARTHEN Town boss Mark Aizlewood was full of praise for his side after they shocked The New Saints.

It was Town's best performance of the season and it fired a warning to the rest of the Welsh Premier League that they could be a force to be reckoned with during the remainder of the season.

Aizlewood said; "They have now put together seven very high standard performances on the trot.

"Of these they have won five, drawn one and had a fluke defeat in the other. With consistency of selection and player availability comes consistency of performance.

"We work hard in training and last week I laid down individual roles and responsibilities for each one of them for the match. To a man they carried them out and to score three goals away from home at the league leaders is a huge bonus.

"Surely there was no-one in attendance last Saturday afternoon who could not have said that we thoroughly deserved all three points."

Paul Fowler put Carmarthen ahead in the third minute with a well struck free-kick. The Old Gold then made it two with Nicky Palmer doubling the advantage with the goal of the match. The move started at the back with Steve Cann and after a neat reverse flick from Liam McCreesh, Coasey Thomas delivered a defence-cutting pass into Palmer who finished well.

Liam Thomas scored the third in the 74th minute to seal a fine afternoon for the visitors who started the game as 11/1 outsiders.
