Corwen shock Brickfield as Welsh National League title bid continues
Corwen FC pulled off one of the shocks of the weekend in the Welsh National League when they beat Brickfield Rangers 2-0 away from home on Saturday afternoon.
An impressive away away performances of the season saw Scott Evans top off his birthday by taking the lead, with a 25 yard strike from Scott Evans in the second half extending the visitor’s lead.
And it could’ve been 3-0, but Brickfield goalkeeper Jay Tyrrell kept his side in the game as he denied Sam Herny from the penalty spot.
Corwen FC’s press officer, Gavin Billington, reacted to the victory which ended a winless run over Brickfield.
“It’s a clean sheet away from home against one of the top sides in our league over the last two seasons, and ends a run of 5 straight defeats over that period against Brickfield.”
Building on the victory, Corwen will be looking to get sharper from the spot after Sam Henry’s miss – and with a cup match on the way next Saturday, they will be wary of extra time and penalties.
“The lads did well not to allow Sam Henry’s penalty miss to affect them, especially Sam himself. A repeat of Saturday’s performance levels against Glan Conwy should see Corwen book a place in the last 16 of the FAW Trophy.”
Going into cup action there will be a lot of competition for a place in manager Danny Jellicoe’s starting eleven, with all but cup tied Dominic Doherty available for selection.
