PRESTATYN Sports concluded their Lock Stock Welsh Alliance Division One campaign with a 3-1 home loss to Penrhyndeudraeth.

The Bank Holiday Monday clash at their Gronant base rounded off what has been a hugely impressive first season operating at third tier level, which will give Mark Hughes and John Hargreaves plenty of reasons to be optimistic ahead of a busy summer of planning on and off the pitch.

The home side made an outstanding start to the game and got their noses in front on ten minutes when prolific forward Dean Hyland made the most of the space afforded to him to fire into the net, but they were unable to convert any of the opportunities that came their way during a dominant first period.

After the break saw the visitors gradually get a foothold in the game, and they got back on level terms on 70 minutes through a neat finish from Aaron Griffiths.

Things went from bad-to-worse for the hosts soon after when Meilir Williams’ superb strike on 75 minutes meant they fell behind for the first time, and a Richard Jones finish with 81 gone gave them a further mountain to climb in the closing stages.

Despite their best efforts, Sports were unable to find a second to make it a nervy ending to ensure they fell to their 12th loss in 28 league games as they confirmed a seventh placed finish.
