The inclement weather put pay to the two scheduled Premier Division League Cup ties but in the league itself, Cefn Albion chalked up a 6-1 victory against old adversaries Chirk AAA’s to stay top. Albion dominated their game from start to finish creating chance after chance and were 3-0 up within the first 10 minutes thanks to goals from Alex Williams, his twin brother and club captain Nathan Williams and a thunder bolt from Kien Morris. The second half started in the same vein as the first, Cefn in complete control creating chance after chance. It was only the woodwork and some fine stops from the Chirk keeper who kept the score down. Midway through the second half the man in form Alex Williams scored two quick fire goals to make it 5-0 and complete his second hat-trick in three games. The visitors pulled a goal back in what was probably their only attack but an own goal in the other direction made it 6-1 to the Albion.

Brickfield Rangers with a squad brimming with teenagers made quite a fist of things at Rhostyllen early on but at this level, it is experience that matters most of all. Brickfield however did have a man of the match in defender Ben Pritchard who worked his socks off in the heart of their defence. The hosts ran out comfortable 7-2 winners in the end with Tom Douglas and Aaron Edwards proving a real handful grabbing two goals apiece with Steve Jones, Kevin Roberts and Mark Williams sealing their success. Credit to Brickfield who pegged things back to 4-2 at one stage through Andy Vale and Jonty Swales.

At the Dunks, FC Queens Park whitewashed Castell Alun 7-0 and Park were on fire and after a patient start they dictated the match from the off with manager Dave Evans left to enthuse “Nicky Chesters was making his debut next to Sean Dodd in centre midfield and he put in a Rolls Royce performance. Edgar Lima was switched out to the left of midfield and revelled in this role that allowed him the freedom to cut in and shoot and it was off one of those that produced the first goal. After a number of passes Edgar cut and his shot took a wicked deflection and beat the keeper. The second quickly followed and it was produced by Aled Powell as he burst down the right flank his pass found Lima lurking the far post fire home. The crowd were delighted as their favourite player James Gregory prodded home to make it 3 - 0 on the half hour mark. We were home and dry by half time after Barry Torrence produced a moment of brilliance to strike the ball home from distance. We again had the upper hand after the break and Aled Powell set up and Barry Torrence to head home at the far post. Nicky Chesters had run himself into the ground by this stage after his first start in months and the Park produced the first of their veteran substitutes who had a combined age of 128 years old between the three of them today. Lima went on to complete his hattrick and to cap a fine afternoons work, vets James Tizzard and Dave Evans were summoned to steady the ship and Alan Huxley sealed the win for his first goal for the club,”

Amongst the day’s top performers were Brymbo who walloped their hosts Rhydymwyn 7-0. It was a clash Brymbo dominated from start to finish and earned much praise from manager Phil Hudson with him saying “We took an early lead via Lewis Clarke as he turned his man on the edge of the area and smashed home, it was soon 2-0 as Billy New left his marker and whipped a great cross in that new boy Leon Jones finished off with a diving header. Within no time at all it was 3-0 as Leon got another as he raced clear and although being fouled managed to poke the ball home. On 30 mins, Leon completed his hat-trick as he turned his man in the box superbly and finished well to establish a 4-0 lead at the break. The lads continued to attack in the 2nd period and Jake Prescott got on the scoresheet to make it 5-0, the next goal was a wonder strike from Zak Clark as he smashed one in the top corner from 30 yards and the game was finished off by Jamie Cumming who put the icing in the cake”

Mold Alexandra secured a narrow 2-1 success against Penycae despite making a sloppy start and they conceded from the off. After the setback Mold created plenty of chances to draw level, a Steve Watkins header crashed against the bar and an excellent goal line clearance from a Warren goal bound effort enabled Penycae to hold on to their lead. Mold started the second half the brighter but around the hour mark; they had Adam Renshaw shown a red card. This seemed to wake Mold up and they got back on level terms when Ben Howarth bundled home a Connor Kendrick corner. Mold were now on top despite lack of player parity and they got the winner with 5 mins remaining when Kendrick latched onto a Nash flick on to Cooley slot home the winner. Summing up, Mold boss Mike Cunningham added “It was not the best free flowing football from us today but an important 3 points for us. I always felt like we were in control of game but we just couldn’t pick the right pass or take the chances but we stuck at it and the lads coming off the bench made a big difference”. The visitors boss Ben Heath added “I am far from downhearted, in fact I am left feeling gutted as the young side we put out battled hard and we matched our hosts for much of the game. Overall I was happy enough with performance but tough pill to swallow as we deserved something from the game especially as Connor Tagoe had netted for us early on.”

Rhos Aelwyd managed to get back to winning ways and strikes from James Rogers and Aled Robertson enabled them to defeat Llanuwchllyn 2-0.

In Division One, Halkyn and Flint Mountain needed an 88th minute strike from Jimmy McGlone to sink Overton 1-0.

Despite losing 3-1 against Llangollen, it looks like Johnstown are on the verge of turning the corner and many of the home fans were pleased with what they saw and left thinking the score-line slightly flattered their visitors who netted through Chad Humphreys (2) and Jack Goulbourne. Reducing the arrears was Brett Fitzimmons.
