BLAENAU Ffestiniog Amateurs got their season back on track with a convincing 3-0 win at Llandyrnog United.

The newly promoted Lock Stock Welsh Alliance Division One side managed to pick up a hugely important three points that moves them above St Asaph City in the standings with four games in hand on the Saints.

A good start from the Quarrymen saw the go ahead on 17 minutes when Ian Roberts found the target, and they took a two-goal cushion into the interval thanks to a fine finish from prolific striker Meilir Williams with 31 on the clock.

After the break saw United put up more of a fight despite failing to take any of the chances that came their way, and the points were sealed on 73 minutes when Williams broke clear and put away his second of the afternoon to round off the scoring.

Mynydd Llandegai’s impressive first half showing was enough for them to attain a 2-1 home triumph over Penrhyndeudraeth.

The hosts went into the break with a comfortable advantage thanks to efforts from Iwan Morris and Osian Jones, which enabled them to hold on in the second period despite Cai Henshaw reducing the deficit on 48 minutes.

There was no such luck for Llanrug United, who were beaten 2-1 at home by high-flying Glan Conwy.

Howard Vaughan’s men got the game off to a bright start and they were rewarded with the opener on nine minutes when a sustained period of possession presented a chance to Aaron Boyle, who made no mistake with the finish.

Better was to come later on in the half courtesy of Colwyn Bay loanee Morgan Owen, who unleashed a 40-yard strike that caught the home custodian off guard and flew into the net to double their advantage.

After the break saw the away side forced to withstand some heavy pressure as United looked for a route back into the tie, but they comfortably dealt with the hosts threat to see out the contest.
