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.
