A massive crowd witnessed a real epic at the ‘Crick’ where Brymbo defeated FC Queens Park 5-2. It was the title holder’s first defeat since last January which has also seen them achieve a 14 game winning streak with eleven clean sheets. Brymbo boss Phil Hudson stated “It was a very well contested game today but I thought other than a lacklustre 25 min spell in the 2nd half, we controlled the rest of the match well and were good value for our victory with Ben Kearney bagging a treble and Jamie Cummings and Billy New completing our nap hand. Park manager Dave Evans added “We started the game brightly and our talisman Barry Torrence found himself through on goal only to be put out of his stride by a Brymbo defender. Aled Powell was having lots of joy down the wing and managed to get himself behind the full back on a number of occasions. After a short water break the game swayed into Brymbo's favour and three quick fire goals left us stunned, a fine headed goal by Matty Willams and a Torrence penalty gave us renewed hope but Brymbo scored 2 late goals to separate the sides.

I think it’s important that we are patient with this new group of players while we settle into a new league but I'm confident there is plenty more to come from us once everything clicks into place. It's a unbeaten start to the season and 2 clean sheets out of 2 games gives us a strong base to work with.”

Penycae were forced into fielding a weakened team and it showed and they were beaten 1-0 by visitors Saltney Town who proved their worth. Club spokesman Darren Meredith was delighted with the scoreline stating “it really was a professional performance which saw us leave Riverside Arena with all three points. Warren Kelly’s 18th minute strike was the only difference between the two sides in a fairly even first half. However, in the second half, we showed everyone exactly what can be done with a zero budget. Wave after wave of continuous attack brought us so close to a more flattering scoreline but the home defence’s last ditch defending was enough to keep the scoreline respectable.”
