FRIDAY NIGHT NORTH WALES FOOTBALL REPORTS – OCTOBER 29
JD CYMRU PREMIER
Aberystwyth Town 1 Flint Town United 2
Jack Kenny’s double secured the win which strengthened Flint’s grip on second place in the Cymru Premier.
Kenny struck first on 29 minutes when he latched onto a long ball down the right from Ben Nash.
Aber defender Louis Bradford did not get tight enough to the striker, who was able to squeeze his shot in at the near post past a badly-positioned Slovenian goalkeeper Gregor Zabret.
The hosts equalised on 64 minutes when keeper Jon Rushton missed a high ball into the box which was headed clear only as far as Bradford whose hit-and-hope lob beat defender Kai Edwards on the line and dipped into the net.
Three minutes later a headed flick from Mike Wilde released Kenny who volleyed home the winner in clinical fashion.
Connah’s Quay Nomads 4 Cefn Druids 0
Nomads celebrated a first league win under Craig Harrison’s management in some style at Deeside Stadium.
The deadlock was broken on 19 minutes when a corner played short to Declan Poole was crossed into the box and Aeron Edwards headed in from close range.
Edwards scored again after 28 minutes in fortunate fashion when a Jamie Mullan deflected shot ricoheted off Callum Morris, hit the midfielder and found the net.
The Quay went 3-0 up on the hour when a sliced clearance from keeper Ryan Neild found Edwards, who fired goalwards in search of his hat-trick, but an off-target effort turned into a great cross for Craig Curran to slot home with ease.
Kris Owens hit the post from a free kick before Jordan Davies made it four with a lovely finish inside the box following smart work from Byron Harrison.

Llandudno 3 Prestatyn Town 0
Gaz Evans scored a superb hat-trick as Llandudno made it nine straight league wins.
The Seasiders edged up to second in the Cymru North, just a point behind leaders Airbus but having played a game more.
Sean Eardley’s side have also yet to concede a league goal in their six home matches this term.
“I’m absolutely made up with tonight’s result. The score says 3-0, but it could have been a different story because Prestatyn were very good.
“Up until we scored they (Prestatyn) were the better side.”
Club legend Evans broke the deadlock against the run of play on 38 minutes and struck twice more in the second half after 74 and 83.
Asked about his treble, man of the match Evans said: “It’s something that doesn’t happen very often – it’s probably my first and my last – I’ll retire on that I think.
“It was a scrappy game, we weren’t really at our best from the get go, but we’ll accept three points.”
