The only winner at the weekend was the weather and only a small number of games went ahead due to the heavy overnight rain.

Any ambitions Cefn Albion may have had were left in tatters and they knew success against Buckley Town would have lifted them to the top of the table. However, after looking so invincible over the last 8 weeks they were walloped 5-0 in their own back yard. The opening goal however did not arrive until 5 minutes before the break when Paul Keenan was tripped and Aled Bellis netted the resulting penalty. Cefn collapsed like a pack of cards after the break and in a whirlwind spell in the second half they scored 4 goals in a 12 minute spell. In the 69th minute, Jake Roberts scored from just inside the box and he went on to complete a four goal salvo. An Aron Williams cross from the right hand side was flicked in by him, in the 73rd minute he cashed in on a an inch perfect pass from Aled Bellis to score a 4 minute hat-trick. His man of the match performance was completed with Aron Williams and Keiron Moore linking to enable Roberts to finish from 6 yards out.

Chirk AAA’s drew 2-2 with Hawarden Rangers and general manager Colin Heyward reported “At least we have stopped the rot and ended a poor run of results.” Chirk started the stronger of the two sides, putting the Hawarden defence under intense pressure in the opening exchanges. The home side forced a number of corners and Hawarden struggled to deal with the excellent delivery and aerial threat which Chirk posed. It was no surprise when Chirk took the lead as the ball was slipped behind the Hawarden full back and an excellent left wing cross was met by Shaun Morris at the back post to volley past the helpless Jordan Manley in the Hawarden goal. Hawarden did well to drag themselves back into the game and were rewarded with an equaliser on the stroke of half time when a through ball from Lewis Cunliffe was collected by Craig Stewart who slipped the ball past the onrushing Zac Bebbington in the Chirk goal. The second half was an end to end affair. Hawarden drew first blood when Richard Evans was felled in the Chirk penalty area allowing skipper, Lewis Cunliffe, to step up and send the Chirk keeper the wrong way from the spot. Chirk’s equaliser came after Hawarden failed to deal with a looping right wing cross and Lewis Clamp headed home from close range. In an entertaining game played on a worsening pitch both teams had opportunities to snatch victory but were probably happy to settle for a point apiece after an evenly-contested affair.

Llanuwchllyn faltered 4-1 at home against Mold Alex who opened their account in the 15th minute through Lee Jones. Stuart Hayes doubled their tally following a defensive mix up and scored with a scorching shot from 20 yards out. The hosts did manage to reduce the deficit through Gwidian Ifan who was left unmarked on the back post. Mold had to rely on keeper Ben Jones to keep them in the game pulling off a string of fine saves around the hour mark. Once Mold restored their two goal cushion there was no looking back and following a brilliant counter attacking play from Mold. Aron Davies set up Aled Reece who slotted it past the outcoming keeper. Wrapping up the points was Rhys Nash who scored a spectacular effort from distance.

The weekends top match was in Division One was at Tower Fields where Llangollen took on league leaders Brymbo knowing maximum points were critical if they were to remain in the promotion race. In a goal-less opening half, Llan did look the better team but they capitulated in the second half with Brymbo winning 6-0 with time to spare and grabbing their goals were Jamie Cumming(2), Billy New, Jacque Stuart, Jack Ford and Jordan Deer.

Looking a good bet to achieve Premier Division status next August are Rhos Aelwyd who clinched a 3-0 success through Jamie Rogers and Aled Robertson who netted a goal in each half.
