The weather wreaked havoc over the weekend and of the 28 scheduled fixtures only 5 went ahead due to the torrential rain. Spare a thought for poor old Brickfield who made all the way to Anglesey but incidents on both The Menai and Brittania Bridges having serious 3 hour traffic delays which prevented the Referee and some of the Brickfield crossing the bridges forcing the tie to be cancelled.

FC Queens Park put in a gutsy performance at Denbigh Town but they were edged out 2-1. Manager Dave Evans commented “Although there can be no complaints about the quality of Denbigh's set up and pitch, both teams will be able to complain about the surface water that sat on the pitch. We started with the better tempo and enjoyed a bright opening ten minutes. Twice we managed to force Denbigh into some sharp defensive action. The game was turned on its head though as within 90 seconds the Park found themselves not 1-0 but 2-0 down. After 12 minutes it was Moses Bennett’s low cross from the by line across Queens Park’s goal that found its way to Jake Walker with an easy tap in from 6 yards to give Denbigh an early lead. Almost from the restart, with an identical type of move with Bennett laying on a similar ball and once again Walker made no mistake. Both goals were carbon copies of each other as Denbigh probed down their right flank and were able to whip in two balls across the six yard box uncontested. On both occasions there was a grateful striker on hand to tap in an open goal unmarked.

The visitors managed to stem this flow and once again edged themselves back into the game, and before half time Barry Torrence was unlucky with a header and he also forced the Denbigh keeper Antoni Sarnowski into a sharp save from a free kick. The best chance of the half fell between James Gregory and Aled Powell, James burst through on the angle and wasn't sure whether to shot or cross and in the end did neither.

Park bossed the early exchanges in the second half gained much momentum, chances were falling on a regular basis and the Denbigh keeper was being kept busy. Barry Torrence was again unlucky with a header and Tristan Wagner wiggled his way into the box to have his shot blocked. Ed Lima went close to pegging things back, he found himself bursting through one on one and on each occasion it could be claimed he was too honest in staying on his feet after nicking it around the on rushing keeper.

The game then fell into a scrappy period as Denbigh looked to see the game out and a number of bookings ensued, Sean Dodd was unlucky to receive what was a second yellow and receive his marching orders. I the closing stages, Luke Hughes managed to flick on a long diagonal ball and James Gregory was on hand to prod home but this was too little too late and the Park are now out of the Welsh Trophy

The Coedpoeth United clash at Dyffryn Nantle Vale got the green light but despite putting in a gutsy display they were beaten 1-0. The only goal of the game came after just 18 minutes when Ashley Owen netted from close range. ‘Coedy boss Karl Fenlon added “We gave everything, especially the second half, but our hosts are a very hard side to break down. It was a very close hard fought game and we wish them all the best for the next round.

In the lower reaches, Cefn Albion chalked up a convincing 3-0 success against Rhydymwyn. An excellent first half performance deservedly saw the Albion lead 1-0 thanks to another excellent finish from Callum Mannion who grabbed his 5th goal of the season. Despite going into the half leading they were disappointed that for all their dominance throughout the half they only had the one goal to show for it. Albion went to totally control the second half and two quick fire goals from the prolific Alex Williams ensured that the Albion chalk up another three important points and keep moving in the right direction.

FC Queens Park surrendered pole position in the Reserves Division and they crashed to a 3-1 defeat against Corwen and Connah’s Quay Nomads produced a 3-1 success at Bala Town in the Colts Division.
