ST ASAPH City manager Daniel Brewerton outlined his disappointment as his side suffered a 1-0 home loss to Llanberis.

It has been a difficult start to the Lock Stock Welsh Alliance Division One season for Saints, who have faced a number of promotion-chasing sides in the early stages and given a very good account of themselves in the process.

The talented young boss highlighted his frustration at his side’s lack of conviction in the final third, but added he has “plenty of faith” that his squad will come good as the campaign progresses.

Brewerton, said: “I’m obviously disappointed not to get anything out of the game.

“When the fixtures came out, we knew we had a really tough start to the campaign, but we looked at this fixture as one we could have taken three points from.

“The lads have been fantastic in the opening games especially with some of the unforeseen circumstances we’ve found ourselves in, but we just couldn’t get anything going on the final third.

“I don’t know whether that’s down to tiredness from not being able to utilise the squad or having to rush players back from injury.

“The lads know themselves that they weren’t at their best today but the good thing is we know we can perform much better than that.

“August is always a tough month for everyone but it’s a long season and I’ve got every confidence in my lads fulfilling the potential of the squad.”

The visitors managed to break the deadlock on 17 minutes when Tomos Saynor took advantage of the space afforded to him and despatched the opener, and the Saints were left counting the cost of missed opportunities throughout the remainder of the contest to ensure they had nothing to show for their efforts.
