Bay in bother but narrow loss to Albion gives hope
TREARDDUR BAY UNITED remain in the Welsh Alliance League Division One’s bottom two, but they will have been encouraged by their most recent performance in a 2-1 defeat at in-form Llandudno Albion last Friday. In their previous league game nine days earlier, Bay had been battered 11-0 at leaders Conwy Borough, although they did bounce back well by beating Llanberis 3-2 in the Mawddach Challenge Cup last weekend.
Albion dominated possession at Maesdu Park, but after five weeks without a game lacked rhythm and flow.
It took a cracking free-kick from debutant Bryan Roberts and a well-worked goal from leading scorer David Maddock to deliver the hosts a 2-0 half time lead. While the home side were on top again in the second half, Trearddur remained in the contest and at two goals down were never out of it. Then with five minutes remaining exciting new signing Guy Hughes struck again for the Anglesey men to give them late hope.
Bay pushed for an unlikely equaliser but were unable to break through.
This Saturday will see Trearddur back in league action when they visit Llandyrnog United.
Bay will be seeking a first league victory of 2018, having lost their last four Division One outings.
