CONWY Borough first team manager Chris Morrell said his young side “must learn” from their 3-2 home reverse to Buckley Town.

The Tangerines’ returned to action following a frustrating few weeks with a patchy performance that saw them downed at Y Morfa, leaving the one-time title contenders in seventh spot ahead of their next JD Cymru North clash at home to Porthmadog on Saturday.

Morrell, said: “We were obviously very disappointed with the defeat but credit to Buckley who worked really hard throughout.

“We knew set plays may be an issue for us physically which is how it turned out. It’s been tough to get a playing and training rhythm with postponed games and no fixtures, but our young squad have to learn something from every game, win or lose and this is no exception.

“There were some positives to take and we had a couple of late chances to take a point, but we didn’t really play well enough to earn one.

“It’s back to the training ground this week and the hard work and effort will continue.”

The away side drew first blood early on when Connor Littler’s superb strike hit the target on seven minutes, but Borough picked themselves up well from the setback and levelled matters thanks to a Craig Whelan header with 13 on the clock.

Things got even better for the home side towards the end of the half thanks to prolific forward Corrig McGonigle, who spotted the visiting keeper off his line and delivered a superb 35-yard effort into the net to put his side ahead.

After the break saw Town level matters shortly following the restart thanks to an Aaron Williams strike, and the deciding moment arrived on 59 minutes when Littler despatched his second of the afternoon to round off the scoring.
