LLANDUDNO Junction’s fate could be officially sealed in their next fixture after they fell to a 3-1 defeat at in-form St Asaph City.

The Railwaymen have endured a difficult campaign in Lock Stock Welsh Alliance Division One after their one-year stay in the Huws Gray Alliance last season, and back-to-back relegations would be confirmed if they lose at home to title chasing Llangefni Town on Saturday and other results go against them.

The hosts wasted no time in making an impact on proceedings and they went ahead after just 17 seconds when a quick attack saw James Williams find the net, and they doubled their tally on the quarter hour mark when John Terry headed home a pinpoint delivery from Corey Brewerton.

This was swiftly followed by a third on 19 minutes when veteran forward Duncan Midgley extended his exceptional recent run of goalscoring form when he turned in a chance after a neat passage of play, but the Railwaymen responded well to the latest setback and reduced the deficit through Richard Hughes with 25 gone.

After the interval saw both sides cancel each other out for the most part, enabling City to achieve their third successive win with minimal fuss.

The result leaves Junction 13 points behind third-from-bottom Mynydd Llandegai having played six games more.
