MENAI Bridge Tigers dealt another telling blow in their pursuit of the Gwynedd League title with a dramatic 4-3 victory at promotion rivals Glantraeth.

The long-time leaders bounced back from last weekend’s draw at Nefyn United with a valuable three points against Warren Gibbs’ recently reformed side, and they now sit four points clear at the summit following an unbeaten start of ten games.

The visitors got off to a strong start and went ahead after just six minutes when Dean Redmond converted a chance from the spot, and the same player was on hand to double their advantage soon after with another penalty with 13 gone.

This provoked a strong response from the home side, who got back into the contest after 16 minutes when Andy Clarke finished well after a good spell of possession, but the Tigers were awarded yet another penalty on 27 which Redmond once again despatched for his hat-trick.

After the break saw the hosts reduce the arrears when Iwan Kirkham found the net a minute before the break, but this was swiftly met by a fourth from the away side which came courtesy of Callum Graves with 51 on the clock.

Bryn Roberts’ well-taken finish after 70 minutes ensured a nervy ending to proceedings, but the Tigers held on in the face of consistent pressure in the closing stages to secure their ninth triumph in ten league games.

Gwalchmai remain hot on their heels in second spot thanks to an emphatic 4-1 home win over Mynydd Tigers.

A brace from Gwion Thomas did the majority of the damage, with Paul Rowlands and Darren Roberts also on target during the rout. Adrian Roberts hit the visitors’ consolation.
