HOLYHEAD Hotspur manager Darren Garmey hailed his side’s commitment after they concluded a hugely busy month with a 6-1 victory at Llandyrnog United.

The Holy Islanders’ produced a clinical display on their travels to improve their chances of claiming the Lock Stock Welsh Alliance Division One crown and promotion back to the JD Cymru North at the first time of asking, moving back into top spot by two points.

Garmey, said: “The players deserve so much credit after what has been a really tough run of games.

“We have had nine games in November and the squad has been stretched to the limit, so to win as many games as we have is fantastic.

“We were missing five players as well as carrying some knocks, but they were ruthless against Llandyrnog, who by all accounts were depleted themselves but we got the job done in style.

“Looking ahead now we have three more league games before the New Year and nothing but maximum points will be acceptable as we will look to finish 2019 on a high.”

An imposing start from the visitors saw them go ahead on five minutes when Alex Jones found the net, and they increased their cushion soon after when prolific forward Chris Jones despatched another chance with eight on the clock.

Another neat passage of play on 24 minutes saw Corey Jones all-but seal the points, and Spurs’ went into the interval with a four-goal advantage thanks to a Rob Jones attempt a minute before the half-time whistle.

After the interval brought further success in front of goal for Garmey’s side on 63 minutes thanks to a neat finish from Deian Evans, but Jimmy McInally’s side kept battling away and got their consolation from Eddie Evans on 76.

The visitors managed to have the final saw with Rob Jones turning in his second of the contest on 80 minutes, moving Spurs’ above Denbigh Town and also boasting a game in hand on their championship rivals.
