LLANDUDNO Albion ended an eventful Lock Stock Welsh Alliance Division One campaign with a 1-1 home draw with Llanrug United.

Darren Jones’ men recovered from a disappointing start and have officially confirmed a third-place finish following a superb end to the season that will give everyone associated with the club plenty of cause for encouragement during the summer.

The home side made an imposing start to proceedings in terrible conditions and they were rewarded after just three minutes when prolific forward Dave Maddock turned in a chance for his 12th league goal of the season and take his partnership with Peter Jones to 31.

Albion missed their remaining opportunities throughout the first period and they were punished after the break when United were awarded a penalty, with player-manager David Noel-Williams keeping his composure to put away the spot kick and ensure both sides had something to show from their efforts following a hard-fought affair.

Llanrwst United ensured the title race goes down to the final game after holding league-leading Llangefni Town to a 1-1 draw on home soil.

Things did not start well for the Rwsters’ as they fell behind on 28 minutes when Craig Roberts made the most of the space afforded to him to fire into the corner, but United dusted themselves off and restored parity to the scoreline on the hour mark through a neat finish from Callum Parry.

Cefni threw everything at their opponents in the closing stages in pursuit of the win they needed to secure the crown, but the home side held firm to give them a point.
