CAERNARFON Town took another giant step towards the Huws Gray Alliance title with a superb 3-0 win over Airbus Broughton.

The Canaries got off to a positive start which was the catalyst behind their triumph, and should they claim all three points at Holywell Town on Saturday then the championship and promotion to the JD Welsh Premier League will be within touching distance.

Manager Sean Eardley, said: “Everyone had the pitchforks out before the game and at halftime to make sure the game went ahead, and full credit to Airbus for wanting the game on.

“We were excellent from minute one and what pleased me most was the aggressiveness and tenacity showed from all the team. When you have a front four like we have and the likes of Shaun (Cavanagh) and Kev (Lloyd) who come on and make a difference you are always going to create chances.

“The second half was about managing the game and we thankfully got another and it is a massive win and three points.

“Credit to Airbus, they gave us a right good game and we had to try and get a foothold early on, be disciplined without the ball and take responsibility all over the pitch.

“To keep a clean sheet against them and to defend so well as a team was also pleasing.”

The home side took control of matters early on and went ahead on 13 minutes through a Darren Thomas strike, before strike partner Jamie Breese notched his 17th league goal of the campaign on 33.

After the break saw the hosts withstand some heavy pressure with countless crosses thrown Alex Ramsay’s way by the Wingmakers, but the stopper held firm and they sealed the points on 73 minutes when Rhys Roberts turned in an opportunity in a crowded penalty area.
