Llandudno 4 (Holland 23, Boss 68, Bennett 80, Murtas 88)
Chirk AAA 1 (McLaughlin 4)

Llandudno made it back-to-back league wins and edged further away from the bottom two with a cracking home victory over Chirk.

Despite the disappointment of being unable to return to home ground Maesdu Park with work on their new 4G pitch not quite complete, the Seasiders still put on a dazzling performance at Maes Tegid, Bala.

Chirk struck first when Max McLaughlin put the visitors ahead in just the fourth minute, Tristan Lloyd with the assist.

Tudno levelled on 23 minutes when the in-form Danny Holland fired in from an angle, making it 1-1 at half time.

The score remained level until the 68th minute when Harvey Bennett worked wonders to find Alex Boss, who made a run into the box and slotted home.

Frankie Montgomery was denied by a great top-corner save from Ollie Farebrother before the hosts went 3-1 up on 80 minutes, Fabrizio Murtas the provider as Bennett found the net.

Murtas turned net-finder and made the points safe when he added number four on 88 minutes.


Connah’s Quay Nomads 8 (Franklin 10, Morris 14 & 25, Davies 53, 69 & 80; Kenny 58, N Edwards 67)
Prestatyn Town 0

There was no mercy from Nomads’ Jordan Davies against his old club as he hit a hat-trick in a Welsh Cup demolition job at the Essity Stadium in Flint.

Davies, second highest marksman in the Cymru Premier with 11 goals, continued his amazing start to the season for the Quay by scoring on 53, 69 and 80 minutes against the Cymru North visitors.

Harry Franklin scored first for the strong favourites before Callum Morris added a double to make it 3-0 at the interval.

Adding to Davies’ second-half treble were goals from Jack Kenny and Noah Edwards, both also on the mark against their ex-club.


Llansantffraid Village 2 (Wyton 20, Biggs 80)
Dolgellau AA 3 (Thomas 25, Williams 33, Sutton 88)

Captain Jonathan Sutton was the toast of Dolgellau after scoring an 88th minute winner at high-flying Llansantffraid.

Khyam Wyton put the hosts in front on 20 minutes, but Daniel Thomas levelled on 25 and top-scorer Gerwyn Williams notched his 13th league goal and 19th in all for the season after 33.

Sub Adam Biggs equalised after 80 and it looked like a draw might be the outcome before Sutton struck late on.


Menai Bridge Tigers 2 (Redmond 7, C Thomas 17)
Gwalchmai 2 (Bentley 26, C Owen 62)

Connor Owen’s wonder goal earned a point for Gwalchmai, but the Premier leaders will feel they should have won after Menai were reduced to 10 men from the 35th minute when goalkeeper Dion Lewis was sent off.

Dean Redmond edged Tigers in front on seven and Callum Thomas made it 2-0 on 17 before Kaine Bentley replied after 28.

Lewis’ red card followed, but despite having plenty of pressure Gwalch could only find the net once before the end, through a stunning effort from Owen.


Airbus UK Broughton Reserves 0
The New Saints Reserves 1 (Nuttall 60)

James Nuttall scored the only goal on the hour as The New Saints went level on points with leaders Connah’s Quay Nomads.
