CAERNARFON Town manager Huw Griffiths and captain Gareth Edwards led the apologies following their 6-0 thrashing at Penybont.

The Canaries turned in their most disappointing performance of the JD Cymru Premier campaign by a considerable margin to come from their trip south with an embarrassing defeat to show for their effort, leaving them in eighth position in the top-flight standings ahead of another busy week that sees them travel to Cefn Druids on Tuesday before welcoming Barry Town United to The Oval next Saturday.

Griffiths, said: “I can only apologise profusely for such a dreadful performance.

“I have no explanation why a team who played so well mid-week played so badly a few days later.”

The visitors went behind on 14 minutes when Kotya Georgiovsky slotted home from close range after Tyler French tipped an initial effort onto the bar.

Jack Kenny missed a great chance to get the Cofis’ back on level terms soon after, and they were made to pay for this miss in first-half stoppage time when Lewis Harling extended the home side’s advantage at a crucial moment.

After the break saw the hosts step up their level of play that the Canaries had no match for. This brought further success in front of goal as Georgiovsky, Harling, Ben Ahmun and Ian Traylor all netted in the second period to complete the rout.

Edwards added: “We didn’t only embarrass ourselves today but the club and town also.

“As captain I take responsibility and can only apologise for that, it’s well below the standards we have set at this club. It hurts and will do for some time. We were clueless and need to improve fast.”
