Premier Division

Kinmel Bay 1 Abergele 0

Elliott Turner’s first half-goal direct from a corner was enough to clinch Kinmel Bay three points from Saturday’s derby against Abergele.

The win lifted Kinmel up to fourth in the Premier Division table, while Gele sit third bottom, but put up a great fight at Y Morfa.

Despite Abergele’s Ryan Pamment’s red card in the 72nd minute reducing the visitors to 10 men, the game remained hard won for the Bay with close efforts at each goal throughout the 90.

Turner’s magic moment came in the 36th minute.

Llandyrnog United 3 Meliden 7

What a game at Cae Nant involving the leaders!

Meliden were 3-0 up, got pegged back to 3-3, but then turned up the heat in the second half to win 7-3.

Luca Querci handed the visitors a 16th minute lead, Lucas Edwards added a second on 22 and a Nathan Rose own goal put the Miners three-up on 31.

Llandyrnog then came to the party. Alfie Harrison made it 3-1 before half time, then David Lawson-Cooke (59 mins) and Joel Rowlands (63) brought the match level.

Meliden needed to up their game and did just that, Frankie Davies edging them back ahead with 70 on the clock.

This spurred the travellers on, Davies adding two more to complete a hat-trick and Querci bagging his second to make the final score 7-3.

As Paul Weller famously sang – That’s Entertainment!

Llanfairfechan Town 4 Rhuddlan Town 2

Improving Llanfairfechan pulled further clear of the bottom three after recovering from 2-1 down to defeat bottom side Rhuddlan.

Ellis Trubshaw struck first for the visitors on 20, Harry Croston levelled after 36, but a minute later Kris Owen netted again for Rhuddlan to give them an interval lead.

Jamie Haggas made it two-apiece midway through the second period, then four minutes later club stalwart Curtis Murray notched a third for Llanfair.

Haggas sealed the points with a fourth for the hosts seven minutes into overtime.

CPD Llansannan 0 Mochdre Sports 1

A win on the road on a tricky pitch saw Sports fly up the table to third with games in hand on the current top 2.

A number of Mochdre players were missing at Llansannan, resulting in captain Kai Davies slotting in at centre-back next to Man of the Match Fin Jones.

The pair barely put a foot wrong in a dominant display of defending on the front foot.

Mochdre managed to play some great football despite the mud, and created some well-worked chances which just couldn’t be converted before that man again, Ste Falvey beat the offside trap to race through on goal and slam the ball home.

Although the home side hit the post in the second half, it was overall a well-deserved three points for Sports ahead of the international break.

Division One

CPD Henllan 0 Glan Conwy 4

Dion Lloyd was a hat-trick hero for a Glan Conwy outfit which moved up to second in the table.

Lloyd struck on 17, 28 and 54 minutes before Cyril Carey notched a fourth for the visitors with 95 gone.

Llysfaen 3 Betws-y-Coed 2

Adam Stevenson gave Betws an eighth-minute lead, but by the interval Llysfaen were 3-1 up courtesy of goals from Ashley Black, Ross McMillan-Howden and Reece Kearney.

The hosts held on for the win, despite not being able to add to their total in the second half, Simon Blain converting an 83rd minute spot-kick for the visitors.

Penrhyn Bay 3 CPD Caer Clwyd 1

This match is now void after Caer Clwyd resigned from the league this week.

Worth recording, though, that Penrhyn Bay skipper and striker Stan Farrell netted three times for the home team.

Prestatyn Wanderers 3 Rhyl All Stars 4

After two months without a league game, All Stars did really well on their return to fight back from 3-1 down to win 4-3.

Alex Garrett gave Wanderers a 22nd minute lead before Kyle Lally equalised on 31.

Josh Robinson made it 2-1 to the hosts in first half added time, then on 61 Luke Williams added a third.

All Stars rallied superbly, Sam Lloyd making it 3-2 on 66, sub Paul Ham levelling after 76 and fellow replacement Carl Howard bagged the winner with 77 on the clock.

Cookson Cup

CPD Bro Cernyw 4 CPD Cerrigydrudion 6 (AET – 3-3 after 90 mins)

Cerrig won a 10-goal thriller in extra time.

Tom Watkin-Jones pocketed a hat-trick for the visitors, goals on 17, 19 and 110 minutes, Tegid Williams, Harri Watkin-Jones and Robin Evans also on target.

Robin Hughes (2), Carwyn McFadden and Will Hughes hit back for Cernyw, who trailed 2-0 and 3-1 in the match itself, but fought back to earn extra time.
