PRESTATYN Town Reserves surged up to seventh in the Lock Stock Welsh Alliance Reserve League standings with a 3-1 success at Penmaenmawr Phoenix.

The young Seasiders’ have developed their skills considerably as a unit so far this term, and they showed tremendous character to come from a goal down and secure three points.

Despite the eventual result it was the home side that drew first blood when Tom James opened the scoring on 40 minutes, but this joy proved to be short lived as Lewis Hughes finished well with 42 gone to bring the scores level at the break.

The second period saw both sides miss opportunities as the game looked to be heading for a stalemate, but Harry Woodfine popped up with a crucial strike for the visitors with eight remaining, and this was swiftly followed by another courtesy of Sam Duffy on 84 minutes to double their advantage and seal victory.

There was no such luck for Kinmel Bay Reserves, who were on the wrong of a 3-0 home reverse at the hands of Llanberis.

Things did not begin well for the hosts as they fell behind on ten minutes when Jordan Pritchard found the net, and the same player notched a brace after the break with 70 on the clock.

A miserable afternoon at the office for the Bay was compounded five minutes from time when Ben Jones despatched Beris’ third.
