Barry Town United 2-1 Trefelin | JD Cymru South | Match Report

Gavin Chesterfield’s final match in charge of Barry Town saw the club take all three points and extend their lead at the top of the JD Cymru South.

Following a pre-match celebration of Gav’s time at the club, the home side took the lead almost before the fans had quietened, Josh Graham smashing through the visitors’ defence to fire home within the box, with an assist from Kayne McLaggon.

When Luke Cooper headed in from a corner at the back post to make it 2-0 after 11 minutes, it looked as if Barry were going to romp to victory, but Trefelin had other ideas, scoring almost immediately through Joseph Jones to make it 2-1.

From then on, it became a tense match, with both defences performing well to stop the forwards from taking advantage, and no further goals coming.

In the second half, Barry hit the top of the post with a long range cross-shot from the right wing, while Trefelin clearly felt aggrieved by having a penalty shout refused with around twenty minutes remaining.

The day was all about saying goodbye to Gav. Fortunately, the team were able to secure the win and ensure the continuation of an unbroken Cymru South winning record for three months since early August.
