Denbigh Town lead Division One after a 3-1 result at Llanrwst United made it four straight wins for Dewi Llion’s side.

The in-form Jake Walker was the hero for the visitors, scoring all three goals, two in the first half and another in the second, with the Rwsters replying from a penalty rebound.

Holyhead Hotspur completed a third win on the bounce with a ruthless 4-0 away demolition of Llanberis.

Robert Jones bagged a hat-trick for Darren Garmey’s side, with Dewi Thomas also on the mark. Holyhead have won their opening three matches 9-2, 5-1 and now 4-0.

Penrhyndeudraeth upset the form book with a commendable 3-1 triumph at Blaenau Amateurs.

Jones made it 2-1 two minutes into the second stanza and Steven Jones added a third after 49.

Greenfield versus St Asaph City ended 2-2, Sam Jones and Danny Calvert for the home team, Mikey Hargrave and Liam Grayson for Saints.

In Division Two, Ciran Jones, Elgan Roberts and Rhys Johnson found the net for Llannefydd in a 3-1 beating of Mochdre Sports, Cai Davies replying.

A goal from Dafydd Gwyn was not enough to save Pwllheli from a 2-1 home loss against Barmouth and Dyffryn, while Kinmel Bay took the spoils 4-2 at Llandudno Junction, Anthony Colquitt, Nyal Hughes, Ashley Wood and an own goal making up the winners’ tally.

Frankie Arkwright notched the only goal as Colwyn Bay nicked a 1-0 victory at Kinmel Bay in the Reserves Division.

Andy Thomas and Josh Griffiths struck for Denbigh Town in a 2-2 draw at St Asaph City.

In the Premier Division, Penycae defeated Plas Madoc 3-1 in a match which stood 0-0 until the final 10 minutes when it all started happening.

However, there was a dramatic ending as Jack Edwards fired one in off a post and Kendrick scored again to ensure it finished 3-1.

Plas, who were somewhat unlucky losers, had two players sent off, while Penycae finished up with 10 men.
