LLANDUDNO Albion all-but ended Bodedern Athletic’s Lock Stock Welsh Alliance Division One title hopes with a sensational 5-1 home victory.

Darren Jones’ men were at their brilliant best to emerge with a comfortable success in their penultimate outing of the season, and they finish what has been a positive campaign at home to Llanrug United on Saturday.

The hosts got off to a superb start and went ahead on eight minutes when prolific Peter Jones found the net, and the same player was on hand to double their advantage with another well-taken effort with 39 gone.

Things got even better for the Albion on 42 minutes when Adam Hold continued his excellent recent run of form with a superb strike to send them into the break three goals to the good.

After the interval saw Ricky Williams’ men get themselves back into the tie when Aden Clarke converted a chance on 64 minutes, but forward Dave Maddock sealed victory for the home side when he broke the Athletic rearguard and put away a chance with 64 gone.

There was still time for the hosts to rub further salt into the visitors’ wounds, and Jones rounded off a sensational individual display with a hat-trick to complete the scoring.

Penmaenmawr Phoenix endured a disappointing day at the office in their 2-0 reverse at Division Two rivals Kinmel Bay.

The home side opened the scoring on the half hour mark when Daniel Whittaker took full advantage of the space afforded to him with a neat strike to open the scoring.

They rose their luck after the break and also spurned a host of opportunities, and Thomas’ men finally secured another three points in their final league fixture of the season when a quick counter-attack in stoppage time was finished off by Matthew Harrison.
