CONWY Borough’s sensational run of form came to an end after they were beaten 4-2 at Guilsfield.

The Tangerines’ slipped to fourth in the JD Cymru North standings after suffering only their third reverse in 11 league outings so far this term.

It promises to be another hugely important week of action for Warren Gibbs and Chris Morrell’s side, with the club hosting Corwen on Wednesday night before entertaining Ruthin Town in the JD Welsh Cup first round on Saturday.

The visitors made a positive start to proceedings and went ahead on 25 minutes when lively forward Cory Williams produced another fine strike that found its way into the net.

A period of pressure towards the end of the first period brought a reward for the home side on 38 minutes as Adam Jenkins’ powerful header beat Ben Heald to restore parity to the score at the half-time whistle.

After the break saw Jenkins make the most of some hesitant defending to notch his second on 47 minutes, but Williams came within inches of giving Borough a second when his thunderous attempt rattled the crossbar with 53 on the clock.

The away side were presented with a golden chance to tie things up when they were awarded a penalty, and prolific striker Corrig McGonigle remained composed to put away the spot kick and bring the game to two apiece.

This joy proved to be fleeting as the Guils’ took the lead for a second time on 64 minutes, and once again it was Jenkins who came up with the good as round off an incredible individual display with his hat-trick.

Gibbs’ men tried valiantly to salvage something from the game late on but were undone again when Callum Bromley’s header completed the scoring with ten remaining.
