CAERNARFON Town picked up their first win of the JD Cymru Premier season thanks to a dramatic 3-2 victory at Airbus Broughton.

The Cofis’ left it extremely late before coming away with three points against the newly promoted side, and manager Sean Eardley will be hoping for more of the same when his side make a tricky trip to Barry Town United on Saturday (2.30pm).

Eardley, said: “I thought we were very good from start to finish but conceded some sloppy goals which was disappointing.

“Credit to the lads though, they have shown their character and spirit which has been here from day one again and there is a real togetherness.

“The fans got behind us and thankfully Jamie (Breese) came through for us as he has had a bit of stick recently.

“Everyone to a man was superb and they all know that they are fighting for their shirt this season. We made some good signings over the summer which complimented what we already have here and hopefully we can have a really good go again this season.”

A calamitous error from defender Mike Pearson was duly punished by Andy Owens on seven minutes to give the Wingmakers’ an early advantage, but the visitors got back on level terms after the break when goalkeeper Dave Roberts somehow fumbled a routine corner into his own net.

This joy proved to be short-lived as the home side got their noses in front once again on 71 minutes when a sweeping attack presented the simplest of chances to Ryan Edwards, who made no mistake from close range.

The away side responded well to the latest setback and found a way to get back on level terms on 78 minutes when talisman Darren Thomas produced a moment of magic to fire into the corner from outside the area.

There was still time for further drama on 86 minutes when an exceptional through ball from Gareth Evans sent Breese in on goal, and the striker held his nerve to round Roberts and fire in the decisive goal.
