THE high-flying Reds cruised to a 4-0 win against Abergavenny Town at Stebonheath Park on Friday night, all the goals coming in the first half

Strikes from Barbadian international Curtis Hutson, Joe Hunt, Kurtis Rees and Danny Williams comfortably secured all three points for the second-placed hosts.

Llanelli got themselves in front just after the 15-minute mark, when a great ball into the box found an unmarked Curtis Hutson at the back post who was able to finish across goal.

An audacious Reds volley then hit the post before being flagged for offside.

But it was 2-0 on 25 minutes when Thomas Hillman found Hutson who was able to play in Joe Hunt one-on-one with keeper Josh Winstone, rounding the Aber No 1 to slot into an open net.

Just before half-time it became 3-0, when a cross into the box found Sean Cronin who fed Williams whose shot was blocked.

Pinball followed before Kurtis Rees fired home to give Aber a mountain to climb.

And worse followed just two minutes later, as Danny Williams arrived with power to meet a cross, his header flying past the keeper for 4-0.

Aber were facing a mountain, but to their credit they kept the Reds scoreless in the second half.

An early Reds header flashed wide, and it was another 20 minutes before the next chance arrived, a cross from Rees just missing the foot of Matthew Delaney who would have had an open goal.

Levi Morgan had a chance to make it five shortly after coming on, a pass from Hutson giving him a one-on-one effort with his strike saved well by Winstone.

Zak Mitchell was named Aber player of the match for the3 second game running.

While the seniors struggled, Aber Town’s Youth had reasons to be cheerful, winning 5-1 away to Treowen Stars in the FAW South East Youth League on Sunday.
