Premier Division league leaders FC Queens Park extended their lead at the top to four points after an almost flawless display winning 8-1 at Cefn Albion. It rained goals in the first half and opening their account was Matty Worrall after being set free by Barry Torrence, almost from the restart, Nathan Buckley fired home from the edge of the box and before Cefn could gather breath, Torrence had Cefn on their knees with a stunning shot from distance. The goals kept on flowing and Worral converted following some good play by Edgar Lima, John Rhys Edwards netted his first goal for the club and making it game set and match were Ben White and Worral who sealed his hat-trick. Securing a lone consolation goal to make it 2-1 at one stage was Ian Oliver Davies and to add to Cefn’s woes, keeper Joe Davies went off injured and had to be replaced by outfield player Nic Jones.

In the match of the day at Clywedog Park, Brickfield Rangers were held to a goal-less draw by Hawarden Rangers. It was a very edgy game that could have gone either way. Both teams probed and defences came out on top. Hawarden had the best of the first half and assistant manager Dave Sweet claimed “If we had taken our chances through Jason Wright and Alek Walsh, we could have been home and hosed.” Bricky went 3 up top early on in the second half and Dan Holland was denied by the cross bar and a shot from Tom Allen came back off the post and they also had a goal bound shot cleared off the line.

The opportunity for FC Nomads to press on were totally scuppered with an 11th hour cancellation due to a shortage of referees so their trip to Coedpoeth was cancelled.

“A hard fought 2-0 win against a good Llay Welfare side.” This how assistant Brymbo assistant boss Matt Wilcox described matters. A stunning 25yard strike in top corner from Adam Bradshaw separated the sides at the break and then a scrappy second half was edged by a great header from the returning Donal McKenna. Our man of the match was Joe Edwards who was a rock in the heart of our defence.

Corwen chalked up a convincing 4-0 success against Overton and what was so special about their success that Iorweth Jones grabbed all four of sides goals and he even had time to fluff a penalty.

Llanuwchllyn had a touch of lady luck on their side as visitors Chirk AAA’s had two players Will Evans and Louis Middlehurst carted off injured. Chirk took the lead through a Matty Thomas penalty but as the game progressed their hosts got into their stride and Gwidion Ifan and Joe Evans netted each side of the break to secure a 2-1 victory.

Penycae managed to make the most of playing their first home game of the campaign and they came through their encounter with Saltney Town with flying colours to win 3-1. Man of the match Jimmy Jones struck twice and putting the icing on the cake was teenage prodigy Dan McInnes.

In the Division One match of the day is at Stansty Park LEX Glyndwr had a disastrous start at home against Rhostyllen who broke the deadlock in the 2nd minute with a stunning volley from Rob Gibson. From the restart, defender Alan Huxley put the ball into his own net. LEX eventually gathered their composure and won a penalty but Steve Evans failed to convert. They did then get on the scoresheet through Phil Gidley but Rhostyllen went on to grab all three points courtesy of an Alex Williams strike.

The Acrefair clash with Rhos Aelwyd failed to go ahead and a ref shortage meant the game between Penley and Llangollen and Point of Ayr and Johnstown Youth were also canned.

AFC Brynford were beaten 3-1 by New Brighton Villa who had a hat-trick hero in Lewis Jones.

In the Reserves Division, Chirk were hoping to peg back points on leaders Gresford who had no game but they had to be content with a point from a 2-2 draw with Brymbo. Getting both of their goals was Will Newall with Louis Edwards and Rhys Powell hitting back for Brymbo.

Penycae finished with 9 men after getting two players dismissed as they were crushed 6-0 at Castell Alun and hitting them for six were Scott Williams and sub Ryan Griffiths with two goals apiece, Nathan Davies and Josh Price.

There was no referee to officiate the FC Nomads and Corwen game so that was called off but Ruthin Town achieved a splendid 4-2 win at Hawarden Rangers who replied through Chris Turner and Matthew Phillips.

Hats off to Llangollen, they defeated Cefn Druids 2-1 with strikes from Kristian Jones and James Colyer with Zack Dobie reducing the arrears.

Saltney Town came unstuck, they went down 2-0 at home against Mold Alexandra.

Turning to the Reserves and Colts Division, Flint Town United have gone six points clear at the top by defeating Lex Glyndwr 4-1. On target were Scott Hewitt(2), James Pechey and Mac Gunther.

Llay Welfare defeated Coedpoeth United 5-2, making up their nap hand with a treble was Jonny Taylor, Alex Lucy and Dave Lewis.

Overton came unstuck and they were beaten 3-0 by high flying Brickfield Rangers who netted through Ramone Nelson, Jordan Owen and James Trigg.

Rhos Aelwyd flopped rather badly, they were demolished 11-0 by Buckley Town Reserves.

It was a good all round day for Rhostyllen as their second string defeated Cefn Albion Reserves 3-1 with strikes from James Selley, Tom Ankers and Ben Patterson.
