YNYS Mon men struck gold after a sensational come-from-behind final victory to clinch the Huws Gray Inter-Island Games tournament title.

Campbell Harrison’s side rounded off an exceptional competition with a gold medal after a rousing display at the home of Lock Stock Welsh Alliance Division One side Holyhead Hotspur, emerging from the tournament with a 100 per cent record to defy expectations thanks to a 2-1 triumph over Guernsey.

Despite the eventual result it was the visitors that drew first blood during the opening exchanges, with Keanu Marsh finishing well to open the scoring with five minutes on the clock.

A frustrating time in front of goal followed for the majority of the contest for the Ynys Mon side, but they managed to get back on level terms on 80 minutes when Llangefni Town striker Liam Morris produced a sensational volley into the corner from 20 yards to level proceedings.

Roared on by a bumper crowd, Harrison’s men dug deep and got their noses in front at a pivotal time thanks to hometown hero Mel McGinness, who has been one of the standout performers during the tournament and produced another sensational finish to give the hosts a slender cushion with 84 gone.

The ten-men of Guernsey threw everything at their opponents in pursuit of an equaliser in the dying moments, but the Ynys Mon rearguard displayed their customary resolve to hold on in the face of some concerted pressure to claim the spoils, sparking wild scenes of jubilation from players, coaching staff and those in attendance.

It has been a competition to remember from the squad, who have conquered all-comers in stylish fashion in order to secure the crown.
