Bay in bother but nar­row loss to Al­bion gives hope

Bangor Mail - - SPORT -

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.
