CONWY Borough forward Cory Williams continued his exceptional pre-season form to help his side seal a 5-2 friendly win over Llandudno Amateurs.

The former Caernarfon Town, Rhyl, Chester and Colwyn Bay player has picked up where he left off at the end of the previous campaign during the summer, which is a strong indication of a prolific season for Williams as part of a new-look Tangerines’ squad.

A cagey opening to proceedings was brought to life on 34 minutes when former Llandudno Junction striker Lee Ellis opened the scoring for the home side, but the newly promoted Lock Stock Welsh Alliance Division Two outfit went into the break all-square thanks to a well-time effort from Mark Ac with 41 on the clock.

After the break saw Williams notch his first of the contest on 52 minutes when a cross sailed past everyone and flew into the net, but Amateurs’ were awarded a penalty soon after that was duly converted by Mike Chapman on 62.

This provoked a strong response from Russ Williams and Warren Gibbs’ side, who regained the initiative once again after 70 minutes when a fine header from Williams found the net for his second of the afternoon.

The in-form forward rounded off an impressive team move soon after to seal his hat-trick and all-but seal the friendly win, with Craig Whelan putting the exclamation point on proceedings late on to complete the scoring.

Borough were without a competitive fixture following the postponement of their Nathaniel MG Cup first round tie against Bangor City by the Football Association of Wales, which was due to the Citizens’ ongoing charge and appeals relating to ineligible players last term.
