Welsh Alliance round-up: Glantraeth pull six clear at Division One summit
Tuesday 11 April 2017 13:32
GLANTREATH tightened their grip on the Division One crown with a 2-0 win at Penrhyndeudraeth.
The visitors came out of the blocks flying and they went ahead on six minutes courtesy of a Gethin Maxwell strike.
Things got even better soon after when Gerwyn Jones rounded off a fine team move on 21 minutes to double their advantage and seal the win, a result that leaves them six points clear of Llandudno Junction with two games in hand.
Llanberis threw a spanner in the works at the summit with a shock 2-1 success over the Railwaymen thanks to efforts from Gethin Wakeham and Stefan Jones, but
Llangefni Town are now all-but out of the promotion race after suffering a 3-1 loss to Abergele Town.
A hat-trick from the prolific Carl Griffiths was the highlight of
Llanrug United’s 4-2 triumph over Greenfield, while Aaron Hughes also netted a treble as
Nantlle Vale inflicted further misery on Glan Conwy with a 4-0 rout.
Trearddur Bay were battered 4-0 at Pwllheli, and
Barmouth and Dyffryn United were held 1-1 at home by struggling Llanrwst United.
In Division Two,
Mynydd Llandegai delivered a fatal blow to Meliden’s title chances with a 3-2 success, with Alwyn Roberts hitting a hat-trick, but
Llanllyfni were unable to do the same and were thrashed 6-0 at leaders Mochdre Sports.
A Chris Byast strike was enough to give
Amlwch Town a 1-0 win at
Blaenau Ffestiniog, but
Y Felinheli were beaten by Cemaes Bay and Prestatyn Sports respectively.
