The Premier Division overnight leaders Rhostyllen played second fiddle to a rampant Llay Welfare who ended up showing the leaders a clean pair of heels and were good value for their 4-1 win. Before things went down hill, Tom Douglas gave the hosts the lead but from that point onwards, Llay took over. They grabbed a leveller through Ryan Goodband and straight from the restart Goodband netted a second goal for them to go in at the break 2-1. Rhostyllen boss Warren Duckett reacted by bringing on Olly Allman and Drew Wickens but Welfare were still in the ascendancy and grabbed a 3rd goal through Tom Wells. Their domination continued and Matty Worrall completed the scoring with 25 minutes left to play.

It was only a matter of time before Holywell Town took over at the top and their 4-0 success over FC Queens Park has them 2 points ahead of the rest and with a game in hand. What didn’t help the Queens Park cause however was the fact they had two players dismissed.
The Wellmen took a 9th minute lead when Luke Edwards played in Alec Williams who traced clear to slot the ball passed the advancing keeper Tom Belton. The Holywell dominance continued and Alec Williams’s close range header giving his side a commanding 3-0 half time lead. In fairness Queens Park started the stronger of the sides after the break but were soon reduced to 10 men after Barry Torrence picked up his 2nd booking of the afternoon,
With the extra man, the hosts increased their lead on 56 minutes when Luke Edwards slotted home as cool as a cucumber. To add to the visitors woes, Curtis Neary received a red card for his challenge on Mark Connolly and by that stage it was game over leaving manager John Haseldin to comment “I'm Proud of the lads today, another professional and disciplined performance with everyone giving their all and playing their part in a excellent result."
In defeat, Park boss Dave Evans was as always saying “I must take some responsibility for the formation we sent out during the opening exchanges. The plan was to counter Holywell's 3- 5-2 shape by asking our wingers to look after their wing backs for the initial period but this clearly backfired. It is nice to take a positive from the trip and that is the after match hospitality was second to non. We wish Holywell the very best of luck good look with their title charge.”

The Chirk AAA’s clash with Mold Alex appeared to be a dramatic affair with plenty of late drama with Chirk leading 3-2 with 90 minutes on the clock thanks to strikes from James Blackwell and a brace from Ryan Lightwood but in a frantic ending it all came good for Alex when former Chirk player Louie Middlehurst marked his return with a double before Danny Warren snatched a last gasp winner. Mold boss Mike Cunningham added “It was an incredibly tough day for us and we made it harder than it needed to be but all credit must go to Chirk who were excellent throughout”

The Saltney Town clash with Brickfield was a 12 goal 8-4 thriller with plenty of spills and thrills but spare a thought for young Brickfield striker Andy Vale who bagged all 4 of the Brickfield goals yet still finished on the losing side. Saltney missed 2 sitters before Vale broke the deadlock but an instant reply from Jack Roberts had Saltney back level. Vale from the restart restored the visitors lead but Roberts again pulled Saltney back level again and the same player complete a quick fire hat-trick with the game only 30 minutes old. Club captain Ben Evans netted for Saltney and then Paul Johnson to gave the hosts breathing space. The impish Vale secured a hat-trick of his own to make the score 4-3 but from the restart Evans scored a corner on the stroke of half time to make it 5-3 at the break. Ste Chiocchi hit a cross come shot which evaded the keeper to make it 6-3. Brickfield did not throw in the towel and on another counter Vale took his tally to 4. Substitute Elliot Bond bagged a 7th but the best goal of the came at the end when Jordan O’Brien bent a free kick into the top corner.
