The key action at the weekend was down at the Dunks where Queens Park quite convincingly conquered league leaders Brymbo 4-1. It was an even opening half but Josh Bettley put the hosts ahead. A fired up Brymbo levelled with their first attack of the second half through Ryan Clarke but whilst intent on getting something more out of the game, Bettley bagged himself a second Park goal. The hosts then added further salt into the Brymbo wound when Corey Smart scored a stunning 3rd goal and Matty Wills put the game beyond reach.

The local derby between Cefn Albion and Rhos Aelwyd failed to live up to its top billing and in fact it was a drab affair with Cefn narrowly shading things 2-1. Conner Kendrick opened the scoring but Rhos quickly atoned scoring direct from a corner through Scott Reeves, only for Jordan Jones to restore the Cefn lead. In a lacklustre second half chances were few and far between with no further goals arriving.

Chirk AAA’s were back to their best and they secured a 5-1 success against Penycae. The league’s leading scorer Louis Middlehurst boosted his goals tally by adding 4 more goals to his credit with Adam Williams completing Chirk’s nap hand.

Hawarden Rangers won their local derby against FC Nomads by the odd goal in seven which they won 4-3. On target were Charlie Bourne (2), Jason Lampkin and Ben Jones but the result left Nomads considerably dejected. They bossed the opening half and could have gone in 5 or 6 up. Instead it was only 3-1, with Hawarden scoring from their only real attack of the half. Danny Sullivan ran the show in the first half for Nomads scoring a hat trick. Nomads were clearly guilty of thinking the game was already won and conceded two awful goals within ten minutes. Jacob Wise conceded a needless penalty and then another defensive calamity gifted Rangers an equaliser. With the rain teeming down the game then became a mud bath battle. Nomads’ assistant manager Steve Hughes was left to bemoan, “It was a completely wasted chance to get another 3 points with some horrendous defending to put it mildly.”

Llay Welfare were second best against a rejuvenated Mold Alexandra. Netting on his debut for Mold was Kevin Day, Danny Warren converted a treble and completing their nap hand was Rhys Nash. Llay were able to pull things back with strikes from George Finlay (2) and Liam Hughes and were level at 3-3 at one stage.
