COLWYN Bay secured their second successive win in the JD Cymru Premier with a 3-1 victory over bottom of the table Aberystwyth Town last Friday. 

Bay’s first home win in the top-flight saw them move up to ninth in the table ahead of Saturday’s game against Newtown at the Four Crosses Construction Arena (Kick-Off: 2.30pm). 

Against Aberystwyth, Bay went ahead inside 12 minutes when Tommy Creamer, from Jamie Cumming’s quickly take free kick, fired a spectacular strike from 25 yards. 

Creamer won S4C’s Sgorio’s Goal of the Month for August after his screamer at Barry Town and will certainly been in the running for September’s prize too.

Udi Akpan his the post before Bay doubled their lead when Cumming played in Dan Jones, who slotted home into the bottom corner of the net for this first Bay goal. 

Iwan Lewis pulled a goal back for Aberystwyth before the break with a fine finish but Bay sealed victory early in the second half 

Akpan controlled a cross from the left and struck a shot with the outside of his right foot which keeper Sam Green got a hand to, but couldn’t stop the ball crossing the line before clawing it away at the second attempt. 

“We were brilliant from start to finish and the first goal summed it up – it was great,” manager Steve Evans said. 

“Quick thinking from Jamie and Tommy got half a yard an hit it. I was right behind it and there was no stopping it.” 

Evans also had praise for man of the match Akpan, who scored his first Bay goal. 

“I thought his endeavour and work rate, he deserved his goal,” Evans added. 

“That was the pleasing thing, to back up what we did last week. I thought we were excellent from start to finish.” 

Bay travel to face Prestatyn Town on Tuesday night in the Nathaniel MG Cup Third Round before Saturday’s home league game against Newtown.
