Llanberis 1 Llandyrnog United 2

It was a great day for Llandyrnog United (whose Cae Nant ground features in this photo)

A first away win of the season for next-to-bottom Llandyrnog at a ground where getting a result is never easy.

On the back of a fine 1-1 draw at Greenfield seven days earlier, Jimmy McNally’s side went one better at Ffordd Padarn, Daniel Lewis and Michael Guest with the all-important goals.

Although there was nothing between these sides points-wise, Albion deserve huge credit for becoming the first team to record a league win over Holywell this season.

Not only did they manage to score against the tightest defence in North Wales football, courtesy of Alex Williams on 71 minutes, they also stopped the dynamic Wellmen attack from finding the net.

Waunfawr 3 Nefyn United 1

Brilliant effort from Waunfawr to become only the second team to beat Nefyn in the league this season.

It was quite a weekend for teams suffering their first defeats of the season.

Rhuddlan Town’s unbeaten record was scuppered at the 16th hurdle as the Premier Division leaders went down 2-1 at Meliden.

Joe Newell and Jake Hughes found the net for the hosts, but Rhuddlan remain 12 points clear at the summit.

Well done to Rhos!
