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.

Cefni went ahead on 11 minutes courtesy of a penalty from Kevin Lloyd, before the visitors extended their advantage after the interval through a superb strike by Liam Morris.
