League leaders Brickfield Rangers put FC Nomads to the sword, who will have been massively disappointed to have lost 3-1 after being more than impressive against their highly ranked visitors. The neutrals at Wepre Park will tell you the result didn’t reflect the game. For much of the opening half, Nomads were the better team on the ball, but Brickfield caused problems on free kicks and log throws and they did manage to take an interval lead through Nathan Jones. Brickfield doubled their account around the hour mark through Barry Torrence but Nomads refused to keel and got back into the game with 10 minutes to go through the impressive Matty Hill and from the restart, his side were denied what they felt was blatant handball penalty. Instead, the referee waved play on and as the hosts gambled for an equaliser, Sam Molyneux put the clash out of reach.

After last week’s shock cup exit, Buckley Town returned to winning ways to demolish Coedpoeth 8-2. Their match winner being Shaun Tinsley who completed a treble in a 10 minute spell just pre and post the interval. Completing the rout were Andy Watkin, Aaron Williams, Adam Eden, Aled Bellis and Marcus Roberts. The 2 goal Coedpoeth contribution in the opening half came from Curtis Griffiths.

Cefn Albion stretched their unbeaten run to six games after outplaying Mold Alex to record an emphatic 5-1 success. A bullet header from Nic Jones gave Albion the early edge and despite Mold hitting back, Oliver Davies gave Cefn a 2-1 interval lead. In the second half further goals flowed from Oliver Davies, Alex Williams and Dan Cox who capped a man of the match performance for his side to go nap.

It was not exactly vintage Chirk AAA’s but a solitary strike from Adam Williams on the stroke of half time proved decisive as they shaded this encounter 1-0. Penycae boss Ian Andrews was a touch more upbeat this week as his sides performance showed a marked improvement stating “At last we appear to be heading in the right direction and had a strong penalty appeal gone our way things might have turned out differently but we had the satisfaction of knowing Ryan Jones in defence was the star performer.

Corwen took their clash against Rhostyllen to Bala and on the 3G pitch at Plas Tegid they narrowly triumphed 5-4. In Joe Williams, Corwen clearly had the man of the match and he grabbed a treble for them. Iorweth Jones netted a goal in each half to complete his sides nap hand. Hats off to Rhostyllen though, it is not often you grab four goals away from home and finish on the losing side so James Jones who weighed in with a double salvo, Steve Allman and Matt Williams will be so disappointed. To add to the visitors woes, striker Steve Jones limped off injured.

Hawarden Rangers chalked up a 3-2 success over Llay Welfare but they needed a last minute penalty from Lewis Cunliffe to see them home. They took an early lead from the penalty spot converted by Wayne Edwards. Elliott Slade powerfully headed home a corner on the stroke of half time. Llay offered much resistance and squared things through Rhys Lloyd and Matty Worrall and a point looked in the bag until that last gasp spot-kick.

LEX Glyndwr twice squandered the lead against Saltney Town with manager Ricky Evans forced to shout orders from the side and on crutches. He must have been delighted with taking an interval lead when Phil Gidley tucked away a free-kick. Despite having Ste Choicci shown a red card Saltney pulled level when sloppy marking and their defence going absent without leave they let in Dan Burgess to head home a free-kick unmarked. Back came LEX through substitute Einion Edwards but with a last throw of dice, Saltney cashed in on their hosts conceding a soft penalty and Lewis Burgess made it 2-2 with minutes left.

Division One promotion candidates Brymbo suffered a blow in their fight for a place in the Premier Division when they were turned over 2-1 at the ever improving Cefn Mawr Rangers who went 2-0 up through Harri Gould and Ryan Harden but despite Billy New reducing the arrears it was too little too late.

Rhos Aelwyd continue to go great guns, they clinched a 3-0 success over New Brighton and now go top. On target were James Rogers who broke the deadlock on the stroke of half time and additional strikes after the break through James Haynes and Dafydd Robertson made the points safe.

Stuart Williams and Mike Marsden had Castell Alun sitting pretty at Llangollen Town who turned this encounter on its head to win 3-2 with efforts from Ben Wilson who notched a goal in each half and Kevin Day whose late penalty saved Llan’s bacon.

Maesgwyn shared eight goals in a 4-4 draw with Rhydymwyn, Dan Roberts was their man of the match converting a treble and David Gosling added a 4th. Replying for Rhydymwyn were Kyle Harte, Rob Jones, Andy Jones and Matt Gilsennan

The Reserves Division League Cup between Gresford Athletic and Buckley Town proved quite an epic. It ended 2-2 after 90 minutes and 3-3 after extra time. Again emphasising what a close scrap it was, it took penalties galore to setting things with Buckley shading things 7-6 with Tom Gunson converting the decisive penalty. For the record book, on target for Gresford were Jack Eyre (2) and Taylor Williams and their visitors tally arrived courtesy of Rob Dunning and Kal Pierce (2).

Leading the race for the title in the Reserves Division are Cefn Druids who polished off hosts Flint Town United 5-3. They raced into a 3-0 lead through Ben Dawson, Toby Nash and Lewis George. Keiran Price (2) and Kiran Townsend led a mini revival but a brace from Josh Jones cemented the win.
