A game of two halves at Sandy Lane with the visitors edging the first half with a solitary strike from Craig Stewart giving Hawarden the lead.

A refocused Saltney entered the arena for the second half and a one-way barrage of attacks followed. Paul Johnson finding and equaliser on the hour mark. Winger Jake Johnson thought he had given Saltney the lead minutes later only to Rabeh Jumaa touch the goal-bound ball in an offside position.

Hawarden’s defence had to be at their best, forced in to making several goal line clearances and their determination paid off as they eventually took their even share of the spoils.
