KINMEL Bay Reserves picked up only their second win of the season thanks to a convincing 3-0 home triumph over Nantlle Vale.

The Lock Stock Welsh Alliance Reserve League basement dwellers turned in an outstanding display to pick up a valuable three points that could finally kickstart their campaign, with the involvement of some first team players proving crucial in their overall success after their game with Holyhead Town was conceded due to the Harbourmen’s withdrawal from league and cup activity.

A cagey first half saw both sides fail to convert good opportunities to break the deadlock, but the home side drew first blood following the break when Jordan Worthington’s incredible overhead kick attempt on 50 minutes found its way into the net.

This goal was trumped by the effort from Shane Bradley soon after, with the player firing an unbelievable strike from 40 yards into the top corner to double their advantage.

Vale pushed hard in pursuit of a route back into the contest late on, but they were undone again three minutes from time when a quick break saw Matthew March-Evans through on goal, and the in-form standout made no mistake with the finish to round off the scoring and secure a morale-boosting victory for the Bay.

An eye-catching performance from man of the match and 17-year-old Ryan Cunningham was another notable highlight from the clash, with goalkeeper Martin King also giving a good account of himself when called upon.
