CAERNARFON Town emerged from their Bank Holiday Weekend fixtures with two draws to get their JD Cymru Premier campaign up and running.

The Canaries picked up their first points of the season following their opening day loss to The New Saints, with the club drawing 0-0 with Connah’s Quay Nomads and 1-1 with Cefn Druids over a three-day period at The Oval.

The results leave Sean Eardley’s side occupying ninth position in their early top-flight standings, and they will look to secure their first league win this Friday during their trip to newly promoted Airbus Broughton (8pm).

Town got their Monday afternoon fixture off to the best possible start when talisman Darren Thomas headed them in front with just five minutes on the clock, but despite dominating possession during the opening exchanges they were unable to add to their tally following the restart.

Huw Griffiths’ side carved open their first chance of the game midway through the half when Ryan Kershaw flashed a fierce effort narrowly wide, and a last-ditch challenge from Nathan Peate denied the Cofis’ a certain second at the other end soon.

After the break saw the visitors on the back foot once again from the outset, but they managed to weather the storm and were rewarded when Kershaw atoned for his earlier miss with an impressive finish past Alex Ramsay.

The home side had their fair share of chances in the closing stages to come away with three points, but they were left frustrated as nothing went their way to leave both sides with something to show from the game.

Eardley’s men were also left wondering what might have been during Friday night’s outing against Europa League heroes the Nomads, with the Leo Smith’s penalty miss proving crucial in the stalemate.
