LLANRWST United pulled off one of the finest results in their history to clinch the Mawddach Challenge Cup.

The Rwsters’ took on double-winning Llangefni Town at the home of Conwy Borough on Saturday, and they turned in a sensational effort to emerge victorious 2-1 after extra-time.

This represents a significant achievement for everyone associated with the club, who end the season with some silverware after a difficult campaign due to significant flood damage at their Gwydir Park base.

A tense opening to the showcase brought little in the way of goalmouth action in the first period, but United came out of the blocks flying after the break and got their noses in front when Aron Jones took advantage of some hesitant defending to hit the target on 56 minutes.

This looked like being enough to give Llanrwst the bragging rights in normal time, but Chris Roberts’ side showed their fighting qualities in the closing stages and they levelled matter courtesy of a sensational effort from Harry Galeotti to send the final into an additional 30 minutes.

The crucial moment in the tie arrived on 100 minutes when Callum Parry finished well, and United held firm in the face of some incredible pressure during the final stages to secure the cup for the third time in their history.

They also achieved the same feat in 1998 and 2013 after successes against Nantlle Vale and Penrhyndeudraeth, with Cefni having to settle for two trophies from what has been a memorable promotion-winning campaign for the squad.
