Corwen sit comfortably in poll position and although they are only one point ahead of the rest but as an added bonus they have 3 games in hand over the rest. Granted they may not have been at their best but at this stage of the season it is the score-line that is more important. They took the lead when the cross bar denied Joe Williams but the rebound fell to Dom Doherty and he set up Scott Evans to break the deadlock. Back came Chirk through Jack Edwards after some good work by Ashton Williams. With 15 minutes left, Corwen boss Danny Jellicoe threw on substitute Dale Davies and soon after his entry he made his mark powerfully heading home a pin point cross from his brother Nathan and it proved decisive.

Queens Park were in 7th heaven whitewashing Hawarden Rangers 7-0. The difference between the two sides was some smart finishing and I am referring to the contribution of Corey Smart who contributed with 4 of those goals. Aled Powell, James Gregory and Mikey Latham went on to put Hawarden on the canvass.

It seemed as if Cefn Albion had an eye on next week’s Welsh Trophy Final but clearly they were not at their best. Both teams started brightly playing decent football with Albion opening the scoring through Nathan Williams. Mold quickly levelled, Lee Jones’s cross found its way to Kevin Day who slammed home from the edge of the box. The second half started with Albion in the ascendancy, Dan Lloyd gave Mold a 2-1 lead tapping home from 3 yards out. Sub Iwan Rogers stretched their lead with a great finish and from 35 yards out he saw the keeper off his line and he found the back of the net with a delightful goal. Steve Watkins went on to seal the win. Mold boss Mike Cunningham added "It was a great advert for the league today two teams wanting to play football the right way, a fairly even first half but a decent performance from us second half seen is take the 3 points”

FC Nomads picked off Rhos Aelwyd 2-0, Charlie Robertson broke the deadlock on the half hour mark and with Aelwyd left to throw caution to the wind, Nomads put the game to bed with Matty Pearce scoring late on. Nomads’ assistant manager Steve Hughes commented “We took control in first half and our patience eventually paid off. We should have been a few more up before the break but didn’t take advantage and fortunately for us our keeper Harry Wilkes saved a penalty. We nearly were made to pay in second half as Rhos put us under a lot of pressure and they could have easily equalised and to be fair, they really worked hard for their manager. But in the end we put the game to bed with a lucky finish off Pearce’s shin.”

It was a classic case of ‘after the Lord Mayors Show’ as a poor Llay Welfare performance was punished 3-1 by Rhostyllen. James Richard converted a penalty to separate the side, Mike Pugh added a second goal with a stunning free-kick and putting the game out of reach was Steve Jones. All Welfare could muster up was a consolation goal from Lewis Bickerton Cole. A dejected Llay boss Mike Gadie added “we were simply not good enough and I think we underestimated the opponents and Rhostyllen made us pay. They battled superbly and fully deserved their 3 points.”

Penycae were held to a 1-1 draw by Llanuwchllyn who took an interval lead through Iolo Jones who converted penalty but back came the hosts to snatch a leveller through Anthony Dunleavey.

There was a goal-feast down at Sandy Lane with Saltney Town securing a 6-1 victory over visitors Brickfield Rangers. Central defender Dan Burgess opened the scoring midway through the first half, heading home from close range. However, a rejuvenated Brickfield refused to roll over with Sam Giles restoring parity moments later with a stunning half-volley from the edge of the box. Manager Andy Dutton rang the changes at halftime with strikers Jake Gibbons and Rabih Jumaa introduced as well as defender Thomas Swinburne. The impact was almost instantaneous with Jumaa heading his side into an early second-half lead. Moments later he doubled his tally with a finish from close range. Jake Johnson was next to join the party whose rocket of a strike on 60 minutes increased the hosts lead. Jumaa go in on the act again with some fantastic link up play between him and Jake Gibbons gave Jumaa his hat trick. The icing on the cake came on 71 minutes with his 4th goal of the game and in doing so securing his team a 6-1 victory.

In Division One, Champions Plas Madoc let their standards drop somewhat, they raced into 3-0 lead with strikes from Jamie Williams, Richie Lawrence and Nathan Jones but they capitulated letting visitors Rhydymwyn off the hook who were able to pull things back through Nathan Mendoza, Kyle Parkes and Connor Whelan. The draw however means Plas Madoc remain undefeated in their 21 game campaign.

Joining Plas Madoc in the Premier Division next August will be Castell Alun Colts who polished off Mynydd Isa Spartans to earn themselves promotion. Rob Darlington broke the deadlock with a scorching freekick and cementing their success was Connor Hodgson.

It was “shots in” for New Brighton Villa who floored Johnstown Youth 9-0. Sam Moffatt and Ross Sumner notched two goals apiece and putting the visitors on the ropes were James Beddow, Leigh Griffiths, Sam Wainwright and Jack Eccleston.

Turning to the Reserves Division, Cefn Druids strengthened their title ambitions with a 4-1 success at Gresford Athletic and had John Owen and Arek Pirsawski getting two goals apiece. Hitting back for Gresford was Tyler Williams.

Brickfield Rangers were sunk 4-2 by Castell Alun who netted through Josh Leech, Ady Olveki, Matt Rushforth and Jack Lewis.

It was total stalemate at Corwen who were held to a goal-less draw by FC Nomads.

The Reserves and Colts Division leaders Holywell Town gave their title hopes a boost with a 2-1 success at Ruthin Town who had taken a first half lead through Murray Hughes.

Brymbo fielded a strong side to face Mynydd Isa Spartans but they didn’t have things all their own way and they only just shaded matters 5-4. Making up their nap hand were James Cummings with a hat-trick and Ben Kearney with a double salvo. Isa twice let slip the lead and netted through a Joe Robbins treble and Joe Mitchell.

Cefn Mawr Rangers fell to a 2-0 reversal against Overton whose marksmen were Louis Williams and Ashley Springer.

Coedpoeth United were narrowly defeated 3-2 by Llay Welfare who were on target through a Kev Hope penalty, Steven Gadie and Daniel Hughes with the hosts replying through Luke Robins and Tom Edwards who had provided them with a 2-1 lead.

Despite fielding a strong side, Llangollen Town were sunk 5-0 in their own back yard against rampant Penycae who went nap through Kyle Davies, Tom Edwards and a hat-trick for man of the match Kian Davies.

Rhos Aelwyd shared a 1-1 draw with Cefn Albion, Rhos had Callum Smith and Albion’s response came from Keenan Bathers.

Rhydymwyn thrashed New Brighton Villa 6-0 and making up their six pack were Jack Smallman with a hat-trick, Garry McNaught (2) and Ross Hughes.
