HOLYHEAD Hotspur manager Darren Garmey hailed his side for the “almost perfect performance” after they reached the FAW Trophy semi-finals at Welshpool Town.

The Lock Stock Welsh Alliance Division One leaders turned on the style to keep their quadruple dreams alive with a resounding 3-0 success, ensuring their spot in the final four alongside Llandudno Albion, Penydarren and Baglan Dragons.

Garmey, said: “It was almost a perfect performance, we controlled the game from the first to the last minute.

“Again, defensively we were solid, and we never really conceded a chance all afternoon.

“And when we do that and have the quality of Chris Jones at the other end there will only be one outcome.”

A good start from the Holy Islanders’ saw them go ahead when Corey Jones latched on to a delivery with a stunning diving header that nestle in the corner to give his side the early advantage.

Spurs spurned a number of chances soon after to extend their tally as they turned the screw further, but they finally managed to tighten their grip on the tie when experienced forward produced a fine finish to double their advantage.

The talented forward was the difference-maker once again late on, producing another clinical strike after a period of strong possession to round off the scoring and send the away side into the last four of the national competition.

Garmey’s in-form side turn their immediate attentions to more knockout progression this Saturday when they make the tricky looking trip to Llanrwst United in the Mawddach Challenge Cup.

The game has been cast in considerable doubt after Storm Ciara engulfed the Rwsters’ Gwydir Park base, leaving the ground underwater as a result of flooding.
