CONWY Borough picked up another point to extend their positive JD Cymru North start in their 1-1 home draw with Ruthin Town.

The Tangerines had plenty of positives to take out of their latest contest against a very well-drilled Town outfit under new management, and the stalemate leaves Warren Gibbs’ side sitting in fifth position in the second tier standings ahead of their long trip to Llanfair United on Saturday (2.30pm).

The home side made a bright start and though they had opened the scoring early on through a powerful head from Iolo Hughes, but the attempt was ruled out for offside by the assistant referee.

They continued to probe throughout the first period and finally got their reward on 32 minutes with the opener, which predictably came from a sensational 30-yard chip from top score Corrig McGonigle.

Borough almost doubled their advantage just before the interval when Cory Williams played in McGonigle, but the time the forward found Ryan Goldston in fine form and the danger was averted.

After the break saw a rousing effort from Tomos Clarke rattle the cross bar on 53 minutes, and Borough went close yet again with 59 gone when a long-range attempt from Craig Whelan struck the upright.

The away side were looked threatening whenever they had possession for a consistent period and they pegged the hosts back on 74 minutes when two-time Huws Gray Alliance top scorer Llyr Morris demonstrated his clinical nature in front of goal to fire past Ben Heald and level matters.

This proved to be the final noteworthy moment of an entertaining contest that saw both sides emerge with something to show for their efforts.
