Cefn Albion returned to the Welsh National League Premier Division peak with a 1-0 win at Saltney Town, Jordan Jones with the only goal.

At the 20th attempt, bottom side Castell Alun Colts picked up their very first point with a 2-2 draw at Mold Alexandra.

Goals from Ben Howarth and Matty Lewis had Alex 2-0 up inside 24 minutes, but soon after Harry Brown pulled one back for Alun.

And in the 74th minute, poor defending from Mold gifted the visitors an equaliser.

Penycae romped to a 5-1 triumph at Brickfield Rangers, Andrew Swarbrick, Jake Elly, Shaun Tuck (2) and Kieran Ball sharing the goals.

FC Queen’s Park and Llay Welfare played out a 0-0 draw, but the game was far from boring.

Mikey Latham and Sean Dodd smashed efforts against the woodwork for the Park, who also had a Nicky Chester goal disallowed.

Llay had two penalty appeals turned down, one particularly blatant, while they also forced a wonder save from home keeper Joey Jones.

Jones also hit a 70-yard free kick awarded for offside directly into the Llay net. However, the goal was disallowed as the kick was indirect.

Rhydymwyn won 2-1 at Rhos Aelwyd, Kian Davies on target for the losing hosts.

The top of the table clash between Rhostyllen and Holywell Town was postponed, as was the meeting of Llanuwchllyn and Chirk AAA.

Coedpoeth United are up to second in Division One following a superb 4-1 triumph at Llangollen Town.

Brian Turner, Ollie Lewis and Matty Thomas (2) split the away goals.
