GENERO ADRAN NORTH REPORTS – SUNDAY, MARCH 6
Airbus UK Broughton 0
Llandudno 8 (Maddie Williams 6 & 30, Hassall 15, Phillips 18 & 40, Sands OG 59, James 67, Dutton 85)
Llandudno maintained their 100 percent winning record in 2022 with a sixth straight victory in all competitions at the expense of latest victims Airbus.
The result keeps Tudno second in the Genero Adran North table, two points behind leaders Wrexham with a game in hand.
With manager Sarah Colville unwell and unable to attend Sunday’s match, her sister Claire Colville and Tref Jones took charge of the side.
After the 8-0 win, Claire and Tref said in a joint statement: “Great game today on a difficult pitch, some good team play and goals. A well-deserved 3 points and a clean sheet.”
Llandudno Ladies started hungrily at the Hollingsworth Group Stadium in Broughton and it took them just five minutes to get the first goal through top-scorer Maddie Williams.
Some good football soon led to a second from Indie Hassall.
Straight from the Airbus kick-off, Llandudno stole the ball and Jasmin Dutton put a fine cross in for Sioned Phillips to slot into the bottom corner.
The pitch was not at its best and the visitors started finding it hard to play fast football. So they settled on slowing the game down and picking out longer passes around the field.
On the 35-minute mark, Ceri Slaney delivered a cracking ball for Maddie Williams to put away her second of the day and 26th of the season.
Hassall then provided the assist for Phillips to complete her brace in the 37th minute to make it 5-0 at half time.
Just before the hour, Llandudno went six up following a Tiffany Sands own goal.
New signing Susie James came on for Maddie Williams and what an impact the latest arrival made!
Stacey Tradewell threaded the ball through the middle of the Wingmakers’ defence and James pounced to find the net just a couple of minutes after taking the field.
Airbus played some decent football and never gave up, but nor did Llandudno as they were still wanting more goals.
On 85 minutes Dutton played a neat one-two and her shot from 35 yards out flew into the net.
The excellent Dutton was named player of the match.

Kirstie Kural scored a magnificent five goals as Nomads went to town against a Pwllheli side which travelled with just 12 players.
Nomads were 4-0 up by half time, Tamara Hamer and Kural notching one apiece, while Shannon Hobbs delivered a double.
In the second half, Sioned Bohana’s own goal boosted the home total, while Kural netted four more to take her season’s tally to 25.
Denbigh Town 0
Wrexham 14 (Hughes 4, 7, 12, 31, 45, 57, 63 & 72; Hodson 17, 27 & 54, Pritchard 46, Dickens 67, Lightfoot 68)
League top-scorer Rosie Hughes scored eight times as leaders Wrexham rattled up a double-figure success at Central Park.
Bottom side Denbigh were beaten 14-0 for the third league match in a row.
Hughes moved up to 44 goals from just 18 appearances in all competitions. She has hit 17 in two league matches against Denbigh having blitzed a triple hat-trick against the Vale of Clwyd team at Brymbo last November.
The unstoppable striker grabbed her goals after 4, 7, 12, 31, 45, 57, 63 and 72 minutes.
Sophie Hodson pocketed her first hat-trick for the team, netting on 17, 27 and 54 minutes.
There was a goal apiece for Rebecca Pritchard, Tonicha Dickens and Amber Lightfoot.
Llanfair United 3 (G Jones 9, Evans 32 & 92)
Bethel 5 (Greenough 10; Midwinter 21, 40, 60 & 68)
Katie Midwinter was a four-goal star for a Bethel side which started without their two top-scoring strikers – Ffion Williams and Fflur Williams.
Gemma Jones put Llanfair in front in the ninth minute, but soon after Midwinter’s through ball released Jordanne Greenough to equalise.
In the 21st minute, Midwinter received the ball on the left of the box and let fly, her strike spinning into the far corner of the net.
Dotty Evans levelled the scores, but before the break Bethel were back in front when Midwinter’s low driven shot from just inside the box proved too good for keeper Melany Price.
Midwinter completed her hat-trick on the hour with a left-footed rocket from the edge of the box into the top corner.
And she added a fourth with a right-foot shot from the left which flew into the far corner, above the keeper.
Evans grabbed a consolation third for Llanfair before the end.
Bethel are now due to host Pwllheli on Wednesday knowing a win would put them third.
