WELSH AL­LIANCE

Wales On Sunday - - RESULTS AND TABLES -

AIR­BUS UK Broughton’s march to­wards a re­turn to the JD Welsh Pre­mier League con­tin­ued with a 6-2 thump­ing of Llan­rhaeadr in the Huws Gray Al­liance.

The Wing­mak­ers were three goals to the good by half-time thanks to Joe Palmer, Leo Ri­ley and a Lewis Buck­ley penalty.

Fur­ther goals fol­lowed in the se­cond-half from Joe Chap­lin, Bren­dan McGil­loway and James Hooper, as lead­ers Air­bus made it 15 wins out of 16. Marc Grif­fiths and Joe Vaughan were on tar­get for the vis­i­tors.

The re­sult also saw Air­bus bounce back from a 1-0 de­feat at Flint Town United last week­end which was their first de­feat and ended a run of 14 straight wins from the start of the sea­son. Air­bus are tar­get­ing a re­turn to the Welsh Pre­mier af­ter rel­e­ga­tion in 2017 that ended their 13-sea­son stay in the top flight of Welsh foot­ball.

Porth­madog, who are cur­rently se­cond in the ta­ble, are 13 points off the sum­mit with a game in hand, are in ac­tion on Box­ing Day at home against Ban­gor City.

Flint are two points fur­ther back in third, but have two games in hand ahead of their Box­ing Day clash with Holy­well Town.

There were two other matches played yes­ter­day.

Gres­ford Ath­letic came from be­hind to earn a point af­ter a 3-3 draw at home against Buck­ley Town. Jake Roberts bagged a brace for Buck­ley with Lewis Hone also on tar­get, but they would be de­nied max­i­mum points by two Jor­dan MacCarter goals and one for Sam Molynuex.

Bot­tom side Holy­head led through Mel McGuin­ness against Conwy Bor­ough, but Con­nor Har­wood’s lev­eller meant it fin­ished 1-1.
