LLANDUDNO Amateurs’ first ever game at Lock Stock Welsh Alliance Division Two level saw them suffer a last-gasp 1-0 home reverse to Gwalchmai.

Sandy Malone’s men have enjoyed a sensational rise to prominence since forming, and the Vale of Clwyd and Conwy League Premier Division champions turned in an encouraging display before falling to a last-minute strike that denied them a share of the spoils.

The home side missed a host of opportunities to open the scoring throughout the contest, and they were made to pay for their lack of conviction in front of goal on 89 minutes when Mark Warren Jones made the most of the space afforded to him and fire in the only goal of the contest.

There was better fortune for Llandudno Junction, who emerged from their home encounter against Pentraeth with a 2-2 draw.

The Railwaymen took an early lead through Richard Hughes on 12 minutes, but a pair of goals either side of the break from Gwyndaf Hughes and Kian Abbott put the visitors in the ascendancy.

Credit to the hosts, they kept fighting right until the final whistle and were rewarded with a late leveller that arrived in stoppage time from the prolific Jack Nettleton to ensure both sides had something to show from an entertaining affair.

Penmaenmawr Phoenix returned to competitive action with a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Holyhead Town.

A penalty from Gary Jo Owen gave the Harbourmen the lead on 41 minutes, and this was swiftly followed by a second from the boot of strike partner Asa Thomas a minute before the interval.

The home side managed a late consolation through a Callum Johnson effort deep into stoppage time, but they ran out of time in their pursuit of an equaliser.
