CONWY Borough continued their pre-season preparations with a 3-1 home loss to Waltham Abbey.

The Tangerines were given a stern test by the Isthmian League South Central side throughout the friendly fixture, something that is sure to stand them in good stead for the upcoming FAW Tier 2 North League campaign.

The home side began the game on the front foot, and they managed to secure a slender advantage heading into the second half when talented forward Cory Williams demonstrated his trademark composure to fire into the net and open the scoring.

Big things are expected from Williams this term, with the former Colwyn Bay, Chester and Caernarfon Town star after he enjoyed a standout end to the season after a frustrating time with injuries.

After the break saw the visitors get a foothold in the game thanks to a leveller from Rob Clark, and they took the lead for the first time in the friendly when trialist Kambu Smith made a lasting impression with a well-taken finish to switch the momentum.

This was met by a strong response from the home side, who enjoyed good spells of possession but were unable to taking any of the chances that came their way.

They were made to pay soon after when Tim Ogunrinde broke clear and finished well to round off the scoring for the visitors.
