NWCFA DEVELOPMENT LEAGUE REPORTS – OCTOBER 30
NWCFA DEVELOPMENT LEAGUE EAST
CPD Y Glannau Development 4 Kinmel Bay Development 5
Leaders Kinmel Bay edged a nine-goal thriller thanks to a 74th minute winner from Lewis Foston.
Bay travelled to Betws-yn-Rhos to face a very strong Y Glannau squad which included North Wales football top-scorer Harrison Bellis knowing a win would keep them top.
Both teams worked the keepers early on but it was Bay that took the lead in the 18th minute when Connor Craig broke down the right and crossed for 16 year old Owain Roberts to make it 1-0.
On the half-hour it was 2-0 when Roberts this time turned provider for net-finder Mark Hughes.
In the 38th minute Y Glannau pulled one back through Ged Burke and just before half time Louis Gizzi made it 2-2, capitalising on a defensive mistake and finishing into an empty net from 30 yards.
Bay started quickly in the second half and a long free kick on 47 minutes was laid off at the edge of the box from Harry Woodfine to Jason Stockin, whose beautiful finish chipped the keeper to put the visitors 3-2 ahead,
Y Glannau defender John Whiteley believed he was fouled in the build up and the goal shouldn’t have stood and was sent off for his protests.
Both teams then made changes and it was Bay’s substitute that made the first impact, Caelan Harms finishing Nat Gibbs’ cross to make it 4-2.
Lethal net-buster Bellis had come on for Y Glannau and he scored the next 2 goals of the game, the first a great header from a Tawse Cox free kick and the second a penalty, but the match was won when sub Foston was assisted by Dillan Roberts for Kinmel’s fifth and the final goal.
Y Glannau: Ged Burke
Kinmel Bay: Nat Gibbs
Llanfairfechan Town Reserves 2 Bow FC Reserves 3
Barry Roche, who recently returned to Bow FC after a spell with Rhuddlan Town, scored the winning goal for the visitors at the Recreation Ground on Sunday.
Osian Roberts gave Llanfair a 10th minute lead, Thomas Bamber soon equalised and Declan Bellamy made it 2-1 to Bow before Roberts levelled for the hosts near half time.
It was left to man of the match Roche to provide a 53rd minute decider from a Richard Hill assist.
Bow always seem to find Llanfair’s youngsters a tough proposition and Sunday was no different.
While the Prestatyn side went at the hosts from the get-go, it was Llanfairfechan who struck first when the visitors were caught out at the back.
Bamber, who along with Bellamy and Jake Hughes were a menace to the opposition all game, responded within a minute.
Both teams scored once more before half time, the home goal coming via a mix-up at the back from Bow.
The winner saw Hill release a pass to Roche, who cut inside a defender and rifled into the top corner.
From then on, Bow handled the game perfectly, although it needed a great late save from Lee Sheldon to deny Town a late equaliser.
Llysfaen Development 2 Penmaenmawr Phoenix Development 2
All-square at the Bananabeu.
Corey Lundstram put Pen ahead on 18 minutes following an assist from brother Benn.
It was Benn Lundstram who made it 2-0 after 66, but two minutes later Steve Collins pulled one back for Llysfaen, who equalised through Lee Fallas on 76.
