CONWY Borough are back on top of Lock Stock Welsh Alliance Division One after a 4-0 success at Trearddur Bay.

The Tangerines wasted no time in finding the target when Corrig McGonigle opened the scoring on six minutes, before the in-form striker finished well to double their advantage on 36.

Jamie Roberts wrapped up the points with a neat finish on 73 minutes and McGonigle rounded off another sensational individual performance with hat-trick on 85.

Manager Gareth Thomas, said: “We changed the system today and the players adapted well to it. It’s another win on our travels but the most pleasing thing for me was the clean sheet.

”We have been giving away poor goals of late so to shut up shop and keep a clean sheet is a bonus on top of the three points. We have had to work hard, credit to Treaddur Bay they  caused us a few problems in the second half. We have scored some good goals today but also been wasteful at times in front of goal.”

Boro’ are now one point clear of Llanrwst United after they suffered a dramatic 5-4 loss at Greenfield despite a treble from veteran striker Mike Lundstram, who recently joined the club from Glantraeth.

Llandudno Albion picked up their second win of the season with a 3-0 triumph at Pwllheli after goals from Joel Carney, Daniel Evans and Harry Roberts propelled them to 11th in the standings.

In Division Two, promotion chasing Glan Conwy moved up to second and they are now just one point behind Prestatyn Sports following a resounding 3-0 home success over Blaenau Ffestiniog, with the prolific Jamie Jones continuing his exceptional recent run of form with a superb hat-trick.

Elsewhere, Penmaenmawr Phoenix picked up a point on their travels after recorded a 2-2 draw at Aberffraw.
