De­mo­li­tion job by cup hold­ers

Caernarfon Herald - - SPORT -

HOLD­ERS Ne­fyn United stormed into the next round of the NWCFA Ju­nior Cup with a 6-0 de­mo­li­tion job on Welsh Cup gi­ant-killers Llan­dudno Ama­teurs.

It did not help the Vale of Cl­wyd and Conwy League Premier Divi­sion vis­i­tors that they ar­rived at Cae’r De­lyn with only 10 men.

Ne­fyn played with a strong wind be­hind them in the first half and, on seven min­utes, were in front as a Gethin Tren­holme shot took a wicked de­flec­tion, wrong-foot­ing keeper Danny Adams.

The Pen­waig piled on the pres­sure but found it dif­fi­cult to beat man-of-the­match Adams as he pro­duced save after save.

In the 34th minute, the home side even­tu­ally scored again through cap­tain Steve Jones.

Close to half time came the goal of the game as Daniel Roberts nut­megged two op­po­nents and struck a curl­ing ef­fort into the net from 15 yards.

The sec­ond half was only one minute old when Llion Jones out­paced the vis­i­tors de­fence to make it 4-0.

With the wind be­hind Llan­dudno in the sec­ond half, the home side ex­pected an on­slaught, but it never ma­te­ri­alised.

For the sec­ond half, the vis­i­tors were back to 11 men as man­ager Sandy Malone came on.

Llion Jones net­ted num­ber five be­fore, on 78 min­utes, a scuf­fle broke out after Llion Jones was pushed into the crowd bar­ri­ers. A num­ber of play­ers seemed to be in­volved,with Daniel Roberts and Malone both sent off.

In the 90th minute Llion Jones com­pleted the scor­ing from a penalty he won him­self. ● In round one of the Cw­pan Gwynedd, Talysarn Celts thrashed Bontnewydd 6-1.

David Jones, Glyn To­mos (2), Alun Wil­liams, Osian Jones and Jac Jones put the hosts 6-0 up be­fore Ian Plem­ing replied.

Llanystumdwy lost 1-0 at Mynydd Tigers in the Gwynedd League. ● Welsh Al­liance Divi­sion Two lead­ers Blae­nau Ama­teurs are seven points clear at the sum­mit after a 2-0 win over Holy­head Town at Cae Clyd.

Bryn Humphreys and Iwan Jones net­ted in the sec­ond half for the Quar­ry­men, whose keeper Gethin Jones pro­duced a mar­vel­lous penalty save.

In Divi­sion One, Penrhyndeudraeth had to be con­tent with a 1-1 draw at Llan­dudno Junc­tion, Ge­orge Suth­erns with the away goal.
