And now you’d better believe it….they’re going to win the lot. Again!

FC Mally of Llandudno Junction completed a fourth Rhyl and District Sunday Football League quadruple in 10 years after beating Conwy Comrades 4-1 in the Lee Jones Cup Final today.

This latest four-timer is perhaps the most remarkable of all for the Maes Derw men as they lost their first two league matches and were even bottom of the table for a short spell in the early weeks of 2021-22.

But slowly and steadily, leading to a big end-of-season blitz, the team embarked on a run of 22 matches which brought 18 wins and just one defeat, securing them the complete set of trophies for a fourth time – making it a Quad Quad.

In recent weeks, Mally had beaten Y Clwb 4-1 in the Sunday Challenge Cup Final and 5-1 in the Premier Cup Final.

Today saw Comrades defeated 4-1 in the Lee Jones final at Cae Sling, Penmaenmawr

What a team – what a family! FC Mally are winning everything in sight again. Picture: MATT JOHNSON

Here is Martin ‘Poomyolo’ Tomkinson’s match report…..

LEE JONES CUP FINAL
FC Mally 4 (Davies 3, Maxwell)
Conwy Comrades 1 (Paddock)

FC Mally completed what could possibly be the best quad they’ve ever won.

Looking in trouble midway through the season, an unreal effort from the whole squad turned it around.

Today saw Mally take on Conwy in what was expected to be a brilliant game with both teams not wanting to lose the big local derby,

As they had done in the previous two finals this season, Mally fell a goal behind. Comrades started the brighter and took the lead inside the opening 10 minutes through Tom Paddock.

Conwy continued to be on top over the next 15 minutes, but were restricted to long-range efforts only.

Conor Davies struck Mally’s first attempt of note when his shot was brilliantly tipped onto the bar.

Soon after Mally were awarded a penalty, but 28-goal league top-scorer Benn Lundstram saw his kick saved.

With half time fast approaching and momentum very much on Conwy’s side, Sam Sinkinson played a brilliant through ball which Davies took down beautifully and slotted home for 1-1.

Adam Hold saw a free kick just go wide before the break.

Half-time: 1-1

With the game evenly poised and a massive second half in store, the Junction lads game out the brighter side and an early goal saw them take the lead when Jamie Moorhouse’s shot was turned home off his thigh from Gethin Maxwell.

It soon became three when Davies found the top corner after a scramble in the box and two brilliant blocks.

Mally introduced Lee Ellis, who had already been booked from the bench and was shown a second yellow to make it a tense last 20 minutes.

That soon became 10 v 10 when Conwy had a man sent off.

With 10 minutes remaining and Mally trying to run down the clock, Hold was chopped down on the corner of the box.

Up stepped the magnificent Davies to whip the ball into the top corner and complete a stunning hat-trick. Game over.

Manager Andy Colville was absolutely ecstatic at the full time whistle. He said: “Completing the quad with this bunch of players is unbelievable. The whole squad stood up and performed week after week when we needed it the most.

“I couldn’t have done it without my team. Lynne and Martin were amazing all season too so credit goes to everyone, we are one big family and now it’s time for one big party to celebrate this fantastic achievement.

“Once more the travelling support today was unreal and drove the team forward, I would like to thank everyone for their continued support and the lads for their effort all season.

“Going into next week’s final league game (against Y Clwb) with all four trophies back where they belong – FC Mally dominating Sunday league once more.

“Amazing achievement from Benn Lundstram – first season with the club to finish top scorer with 28 goals.”
