Liam Thomas delighted to break Carmarthen Town record
Carmarthen Town forward Liam Thomas says he’s delighted in becoming the clubs all time top goal scorer.
The former Neath midfielder scored his 57th goal for Carmarthen Town after making the move to Carmarthen back in 2012, thus putting him as the clubs all time top goal scorer.
Thomas who broke the record on the final day of the regular season against Bangor City said it was a personal target of his at the start of the season.
“It means a lot for me to break the record for Carmarthen Town, having done it this season is great it was one of my targets I set myself during the season.
I’ve got 13 goals this season, I think it’s been a relatively good season. I scored more goals this season then I did last season.”
Sometimes when records are broken the goals are memorable ones which are goals of pure class but for Thomas, it was making them most of a defensive error as he bared down on goal, Coolly slotting away to give his side a two goal lead.

“I couldn’t believe my luck when the centre half headed the ball back and it fell straight to my feet, it felt like I had to much time but I calmly slotted it past the keeper which was the goal that broke the record and Danny Thomas was the first to congratulate me.“
Asked on what his favourite goal was on getting the record, it would have to be the goal he scored in his first season with the Old Gold away at Airbus.
“The goal away at Airbus, it was my first season there for the club and I had goal of the month for that goal, it was a live game and last kick of the game.”
Of course with goals, most of the time there has to be an assist and Thomas believes he’s got a great set of players at the club who have helped him get where he is.
“We have a great bunch of lads there at the club we’re a young squad (except for Craig Hanfs) we all get along very well, yeah I think a few have had their fair share of assists for me.”
There is an all important matter of a Welsh Premier League European Play-Off on Sunday at Richmond Park and Thomas is eyeing more goals as he tries to inspire a win over South Wales rivals Cardiff Metropolitan University.
“We all know It’s going to be a close game we know what happened last game, we will work hard in training and I can’t wait to get out on that pitch Sunday afternoon.
We know it’s going to be a tough game, as a team we all know what is needed for Sunday’s game and we will prepare right and turn up Sunday knowing what we got to do, hopefully I can get another one or two Sunday.”
