COLWYN Bay’s JD Cymru Premier debut ended in disappointment as they lost 4-0 at home to Caernarfon Town.

In front of more than 1,400 at the 4 Crosses Construction Arena, Bay started brightly and dominated possession.

Efforts from Alex Downes, Nick Rushton, Matty Hill and Sam Turner all went wide, Caernarfon weathering the early storm and a header from Darren Thomas giving them the lead at the break.

Three goals in the space of 10 minutes sealed victory for Caernarfon.

Adam Davies scored with a deflected shot after Alex Downes had been caught in possession, and then set up Zack Clarke for the third.

Davies got his second of the game from Clarke’s acrobatic pull-back.

“I thought we started the game really well, I thought first 25-30 we were miles the better team,” said manager Steve Evans.

“They couldn’t get out, we got in some areas of the pitch but we didn’t make the keeper work and we have to take them chances.

“At this level you have to take your chances - if you don’t it comes back to bite you and it did.

“I thought second half we were terrible. We didn’t play with any urgency - we started to when it was 3-0.

“We were a little bit naive with a couple of the goals - we need to learn quick and we will do.

“We’ve got a young squad and they will learn. “

Bay travel to fellow newly-promoted side Barry Town United on Saturday.
