CAERNARFON Town secured hone field advantage in the Europa League play-off thanks to a resounding 4-1 win over Newtown.

The Canaries were at their brilliant best in their final JD Welsh Premier League fixture at The Oval this season, and the result sees them move into fourth spot with two games remaining.

They travel to newly crowned champions The New Saints in front of the S4C Sgorio cameras on Saturday (7.30pm), before concluding their top-flight campaign at Bala Town on Friday, April 26.

The home side began the game in imposing fashion and they went ahead on ten minutes when Darren Thomas played in Danny Brookwell, and the pacey forward rounded stopper Dave Jones before firing into an empty net.

Brookwell almost added to his tally on 12 minutes when his effort was saved by Jones, with the Robins keeper also producing a fine stop from Noah Edwards soon after.

Their persistence paid off again on 33 minutes when striker Jamie Breese reacted first to put away a rebound to double their advantage after Thomas’ initial effort came thundering back off the post.

After the break saw the Cofis further extend their cushion during the opening exchanges when Thomas went from provider to scorer when he turned in a superb delivery from Edwards, and there was further cause for celebration on 55 minutes when striker Cai Jones unleashed a ferocious effort that gave Jones no chance.

Credit to Chris Hughes’ men, they kept plugging away despite the score-line and they were rewarded with a consolation late on which came courtesy of a neat finish from Kieron Mills-Evans.

This did not impact the overall outcome of the contest, with their latest milestone sparking jubilant scenes on the final whistle.
