CAERNARFON Town manager Sean Eardley was full of praise for his side after they secured a 3-0 home win over fellow JD Welsh Premier League new boys Llanelli Town.

The Canaries bounced back from their home loss to Barry Town United in fine style for their fourth top flight victory in seven outings, and they now occupy fourth spot in the standings ahead of their trip to Europa League qualifiers Cefn Druids on Friday (7.45pm).

Eardley, said: “I thought the boys were brilliant and it was a really accomplished performance. We started well and although Llanelli had a good spell during the half we finished strongly and I said to them at half-time to keep doing what they’re doing and keep getting those shots away.

“We have got the burden off our shoulders in terms of winning games more than 1-0. We missed a couple of chances early on but they kept going and once we got the second I thought we settled down and it was another clean sheet and three points.

“I’d have settled for 12 points from our opening seven games. We are learning week after week and it is a great return especially when you consider the quality of teams we have come up against. Last week’s result against Barry deflated us but the lads have trained well and with good intensity this week.

“We have five Friday night fixtures now so preparations will need to be altered but once we kick off we will be rocking again and ready to go.”

Despite dominating the first period, the Cofis were unable to convert any of the chances that came their way, but they finally broke the deadlock after the break through a fine individual strike from Danny Brookwell on 58 minutes, and the hosts’ doubled their advantage on 68 when Jamie Breese finished well after good work from Sion Bradley.

The away side pushed more men forward in a bid to get back into the contest late on, but they left themselves open and substitute Cai Owen wrapped up the points four minutes from time.
