Causing the biggest shock of all at the weekend were Cefn Albion who scalped local rivals Chirk AAA’s 3-0 and it was no fluke either as they had the game put to bed by half time. Cefn skipper Paul Griffiths reported “It was a dominant first half display from us as we destroyed the home team. We were much quicker, passed the ball better and wanted it more. New signing Jimmy Jones got the opener with a neat volley. Nic Jones grabbed the second one with a curled effort into the corner. Then enter centre stage 17 year old Kian Morris who was exceptional and it was his through ball that found new signing Conner Kendrick who slotted the ball home. In truth it could have been more than three, we also hit the bar.” As expected, Chirk came out strong after the break and spurned a spot-kick opportunity but Cefn matched them stride for stride and comfortably saw the game out.
