Llanrumney boss Morgan praises performances of youth players
Llanrumney United manager Gareth Morgan has praised the form of striker Jordan Mortimore, after his brace against Vale United on Saturday.
The Stags are currently top of the South Wales Alliance League Division Two, having won 11 of their 13 league fixtures this season
Morgan’s side are the second highest top goal scorers in the division and Mortimore has been leading the line for Gareth Morgan’s side.
Morgan said: “Jordan Mortimore is hitting an amazing run of form in general play & in front of goal.
To be honest, it’s harder to name someone who’s not been in great form lately than it would be to say who’s been good.”
Llanrumney’s opponents Vale United are the top goal scorers of the division and are currently third, nine points behind the Cardiff based side.
Vale United have been considered as potential promotion contenders this season, meaning that victory for Llanrumney has become all the more sweeter.
“When you win a top of the table clash at home you can only really be very pleased, added Morgan
“We battled well and worked so hard, but we all felt it wasn’t our greatest performance by any stretch. Maybe that was down to the level of the opposition being higher.”
Llanrumney this season have looked to youth as they assemble a squad capable of achieving promotion to the sixth tier of Welsh football.
Five teenagers featured at Riverside Park, with a 20-year old as well, making it a relatively youthful looking Llanrumney side, as they continue to develop from within.
“It’s another three points towards our goal of top three. Five teenagers and a 20-year-old on the pitch again also which bodes well for the Club’s future.
I think we can get better in most areas particularly out wide, but our youngsters are improving all the time so as long as they keep learning and listening we will achieve that.”
It really is the strength of the team as a unit that has been serving us well so far.”
