CONWY Borough’s first team manager Chris Morrell lauded the “never say die attitude” of his side following their last-gasp 2-1 victory at Llangefni Town.

The Tangerines’ extended their exceptional recent JD Cymru North with another determined display that saw them snatch all three points at the death, leaving them in fifth spot as they prepare to welcome Llandudno for a hotly anticipated New Year’s Day derby encounter this week.

Morrell, said: “Once again our never give up spirit came through with a stunning strike from Rob Jones sealing the points in the last minute.

“The boys have had some month to be fair to them.

“In truth the game for both teams was a bit of a slog on a tough pitch with Christmas looking like it had taken its toll, but to get the win at such a tough place to go is obviously really positive again.

“While our youngsters have taken all the plaudits of late, our experience in Ben Heald and Rob was a big factor today and now we go on to face a fantastic team in Llandudno.

“It was also great to see so many Conwy supporters and I hope they turn out in force once again for the New Year’s Day fixture.”

Despite the eventual result it was the home side who drew first blood and went ahead after just four minutes when Steffan Jones fired in the opener from 12 yards and superb individual work in the build up by Cai Powell-Roberts.

The visitors began to settle after some early jitters and got themselves back on level terms thanks to a familiar source in prolific striker Corrig McGonigle on 25 minutes, who delivered an expert free kick from 19 yards past Cefni stopper Tyler French.

A series of impressive saves from Heald denied the home side during the second period, and this proved to be crucial as Borough secured another important triumph thanks to a sensational strike from Jones with virtually the final action of the contest.
