CAERNARFON Town’s highly anticipated derby day clash with Llandudno and former manager Iwan Williams was postponed due to a power cut.

The JD Welsh Premier League contest, which attracted a bumper crowd of more than 1,300 to The Oval, with the tie brought to a halt at half-time with the score at 0-0.

This was the third electrical fault throughout the region in the last month, and Saturday’s match is scheduled for a 12pm kick-off with free entry.

Tudno stopper Connor Roberts had to be at his best to deny the Cofis after three minutes, with Leo Smith going close at the other end when his free-kick sailed wide with ten gone.

The visitors were on the front foot once again after 13 minutes when the versatile Mark Connolly teed up Alun Webb, but the forward’s curling effort was diverted comfortably by Alex Ramsay.

Canaries’ skipper Nathan Craig was inches away from giving his side the lead on 16 minutes when his superb free-kick flew wide with Roberts beaten, and Ryan Williams also failed to hit the target on 22 following an impressive spell of possession from Sean Eardley’s side.

Williams’ day got even worse soon after when he was shown a red card with 24 on the clock following a robust challenge on Webb when he was through on goal, and Connolly tested Ramsay with a free-kick of his own on 28.

A long-range effort from Smith missed the target from 25-yards on 36 minutes, and former Caernarfon star Toby Jones rattled the post for the away side with the final action of the first period.

Both sets of players were in their respective changing rooms when darkness descended, which forced the game to be brought to a halt.
