Bodedern keep the pressure on at the top of the Welsh Alliance

After matchweek eleven in the Welsh Alliance, both leagues continued with an emerging mid-table battle, whilst the pacesetters at the top remained in place.

Division One

Bodedern Athletic 7-1 Llanrwst United

Bodedern Athletic moved up to second in the Division after an emphatic victory against an out-of-sorts Llanrwst United, who missed the chance to go level on points with the hosts.

Star of the show for Bodedern Athletic was Aidan Clarke, who netted a hat-trick for the hosts, while Dafydd Jones was also prolific in front of goal, netting himself a brace. Richard Williams and Shaun Jenkins also found themselves on the scoresheet for the hosts, with both netting a goal each. The visitors were given a brief glimmer of hope shortly before half-time when Steffan Whiteley grabbed a goal to reduce the arrears, making it 3-1 at the break, but the goal proved to merely a consolation as the hosts had a prolific second half to finish the match 7-1 victors.

Greenfield 2-1 Barmouth Dyffryn

The visitors’ poor form this season continued, as they were narrowly beaten by a Greenfield side that are sixth in the table. The hosts raced into a first half lead when Aidan Roxburgh netted after 36 minutes. However, the visitors drew level in the 69th minute when Gethin Evans scored. But it just wasn’t to be for the visitors, and just 10 minutes before the end of the match, Daniel Sim popped up with the winner to seal the three points for the hosts.

Llandudno Junction 1-2 Prestatyn Sports

Prestatyn Sports had to come from behind to beat the Club currently at the bottom of the league table, in an entertaining clash at The Arriva ground. The hosts took the game by storm in their first home match in a month, and were ahead in the 31st minute through Jack Nettleton. However, it was a different game after the break, and the visitors were level in the 61st minute, when Ben Cawley scored, before Darren Cassidy netted the winner just 11 minutes later to condemn the hosts to their 10th loss of the season.

The hosts leapfrogged  the visitors after a dominant display, which saw them clinch all three points. Mynydd Llandegai were in control from the start, and two goals in less than two first half minutes saw them stun Llanberis, with Craig Whelan and Dylan Williams netting in the 18th and 19th minute respectively. Striker Iwan Morris added a third in the 34th minute, before David Jones grabbed a goal for the visitors in the 42nd minute, to make it 3-1 at Half Time. However, any hope Llanberis had of earning at least a point disappeared in the 66th minute, when Andrew Barker made it 4-1 to the hosts, who jump up to 10th in the Division with the three points.

Penrhyndeudraeth 2-2 Llanrug United

These two sides played out a very entertaining 2-2 draw at Maes Y Parc. The deadlock was broken in the 25th minute, when Alun Hughes opened the scoring for the hosts. Penrhyndeudraeth added a second just three minutes into the second half, when Meilir Williams scored to put them 2-0 up. However, the game was flipped on its head just 10 minutes later, when two goals in two minutes, from Eifion Williams and Aaron Hughes, brought the visitors level at 2-2.

Division Two

Glan Conwy 2-2 Llannerchymedd

It was an end to end match between Glan Conwy and Llannerchymedd. Glan Conwy opened the scoring through Shaheen Ahmed, and it remained 1-0 until the 62nd minute when Mark Jones scored from the penalty spot to draw level. It remained level until the 82nd minute, when Connor Davies put the hosts back in front, only for Lewis Connor to score from a corner just five minutes later to rescue a point for the visitors.

Kinmel Bay 3-0 Gaerwen

A pretty straightforward result for the hosts, who defeated a Gaerwen side who are lurking just two places off the bottom of the table after their fifth defeat of the season. Nyal Hughes, Anthony Colquit and Jordan Worthington all scored for the dominant hosts, who move up to second in the table.

Llannefydd 4-2 Amlwch Town

Things went from bad to worse for the side currently bottom of the league, as they remain without a single point this season, having lost all seven matches so far. A Tomos Jones double ensured a bright start for the hosts, before Jac Gronow added a third just three minutes into the second half. Rhodri Hughes pulled a goal back for Amlwch, but all hopes of a comeback were extinguished when Andrew Jones made it 4-1 in the 82nd minute. Martin Byast added a consolation strike for the visitors just four minutes later, but the hosts had guaranteed all three points by that point.

Mochdre Sports 0-1 Meliden

The new management team of Ollie Jones and Paul Welburn celebrated their first win in charge of Meliden, after taking over from long-serving manager  Gaz Jones. David O’Neal netted the only goal of the game in the 49th minute.

Pentraeth 0-1 Penmaenmawr Phoenix

Penmaenmawr Phoenix moved to within a point of the hosts after a hard-fought victory over the in-form hosts at the Bryniau Field. Ben Lumstram scored in the 47th minute to seal the three points for Phoenix, while ensuring Pentraeth suffered their fifth defeat of the season.
