Barry Town United vs Briton Ferry Llansawel | JD Cymru South | Match Report


A first half goal from the visitors was the only goal of the match in front of 827 fans at Jenner Park.


After half an hour of play, a free-kick from the right caused chaos in the Barry defence, leading to an attempted clearance rebounding off Ferry’s Cullen Kinsella into the net.


From then on, the visitors adopted a defensive formation, with Barry pushing forward for an equaliser.


Callum Sainty hit the post twice for Barry, while Kayne McLaggon was unable to take advantage of a gilt-edged chance in the box. A shot from Jordan Cotterill flashed by the far post, while goalscorer Kinsella clipped the bar for Ferry on a rare counter-attack.


As time ticked away, Barry’s final chance was a Curtis McDonald shot headed off the line by Chris Evans, with the goalkeeper beaten. But it wasn’t to be Barry’s night.
