The way the first few minutes went at Rhyl yesterday afternoon it looked as if Llandudno FC were going to have a comfortable stroll in their opening Welsh Premier League game. Marc Williams missed a clear chance early on, putting a chance over the bar from close range then Danny Hughes had a goal disallowed – a borderline decision then the assistant referee somehow managed to miss a blatant handball by a Rhyl defender. After dominating the first half Tudno had to spend a fair bit of the second half on the back foot so in the end a draw was probably a fair result but Tudno will rue their first half misses. Easy game next as champions the New Saints are at Maesdu Park next saturday!!!
Saturday afternoon and I was at the Morfa, Conwy to see the opening Huws Gray Alliance game between Conwy Borough and Caersws. Caersws comfortably won 5-2 despite late goals for Joe Chaplin and Derek Taylor for the home team. It was a poor effort from Conwy but hopefully it will get better!
Colwyn Bay fared little better losing 1-0 at Farsley Celtic in their first league game.
Welsh Alliance Division 1 saw an Allan Jones goal give Abergele a 1-1 home draw against Nantlle Vale. James Hobson, Meryck Knight and Cooper scored for Llandudno Junction but they still lost 4-3 at Llanrug. Pwllheli and Llanrwst drew 0-0 whilst Glan Conwy drew 3-3 at Llanberis. Two goals for Anthony Wilson and one for Kyle Moore. Division 2 saw Penmaenmawr Phoenix get a great 3-0 home win against Llanllyfni with 2 goals for Charlie Thompson plus one from Daniel Williams. A hat trick from Jordan Phillips and a goal from Andy Leater gave Mochdre Sports a 4-3 win at Pentraeth.
Midweek fixtures see Colwyn Bay entertain Hyde United tomorrow night with a 7.45 kick off. In the Welsh Alliance with 6.30 kick off Glan Conwy entertain Greenfield whilst on Wednesday Llandudno Junction play St Asaph and Llanrwst host Abergele and in Division 2 Pen Phoenix travel to Prestatyn Sports.
