TREARDDUR Bay United will look to stretch their un­beaten run this sea­son to nine matches when they travel to Llandyrnog United in the FAW Tro­phy this Satur­day (2pm).

Bay main­tained their out­stand­ing start to the cam­paign last week­end when they ham­mered fel­low is­lan­ders Aml­wch Town 8-1 at Lon Isallt in the Welsh Cup.

Trearddur now face a trip to MidWales League side Waterloo Rovers in the first round proper.

The tie got off to a fly­ing start when Asa Thomas was scythed down in the box in the first minute and Curt Wil­liams slot­ted home the re­sult­ing penalty.

Bay dou­bled their lead in the 10th minute when Wil­liams out­mus­cled a de­fender to slam home his sec­ond of the game and ninth goal this term.

Trearddur cre­ated plenty of chances play­ing into the blus­tery wind but failed to add fur­ther goals be­fore the break.

The hosts be­gan the sec­ond half as they did the first, Thomas re­ceiv­ing a long crossfield pass and calmly round­ing the keeper to slot home.

Aml­wch got them­selves back into the game when Mathew Doutch was harshly red carded for han­dling in the box. Jack Grif­fiths con­verted the penalty on 53 min­utes.

Mark Wil­liams’s side re­stored their three-goal ad­van­tage when a per­fectly de­liv­ered ball from Dale Mur­phy saw Thomas with bags of room to head home at the far post, mak­ing it 12 goals for the sea­son.

The best goal of the af­ter­noon came in the 69th minute when Dan McGin­ness won the ball deep in his own half.

Af­ter mak­ing 20 yards he glanced up and see­ing vis­it­ing keeper Ryan McKean off his line struck a beauty from the half­way line over the cus­to­dian and into the open net, some­thing Bay seem to do now on a reg­u­lar ba­sis. Aml­wch tried des­per­ately to claw some­thing back but it was Bay who con­tin­ued to press and look dan­ger­ous.

With changes made and fresh legs on the pitch it was Shaun Jenk­ins who con­verted next to pile on the pres­sure.

Bay were fin­ish­ing the strong­est and Craig Moore did well to ride to heavy tack­les be­fore round­ing the keeper and slot­ting home from a tight an­gle.

The Welsh Al­liance Di­vi­sion One

Pic: DENNIS YOUNG out­fit still had time for one fi­nal piece of ex­cel­lent football when Myles Jones took a free kick 30 yards and could not have placed it any bet­ter, curl­ing over the wall dip­ping just un­der the cross­bar leav­ing the keeper a spec­ta­tor.

For WAL Di­vi­sion Two un­der­dogs Aml­wch, who were down to the bare bones player-wise, it was a dis­ap­point­ing af­ter­noon but they will have much eas­ier as­sign­ments than this over the sea­son.

Other first round ties: Gwalchmai v Mold Alex, Guils­field v Glantraeth, Holy­head Hot­spur v Pentraeth.
