CONWY Borough picked up another very impressive result thanks to a 1-1 draw at Huws Gray Alliance title hopefuls Flint Town United.

The Tangerines have begun life back in the second tier in extremely positive fashion, and Gareth Thomas’ side currently sit in sixth spot ahead of their Huws Gray Cup quarter final clash at Porthmadog on Saturday (2.30pm).

The away side made a positive opening to proceedings and almost went ahead on six minutes when Bryan Roberts’ effort struck the outside of the post, and Dean Seager also spurned a good opportunity with 19 on the clock when his fierce drive flew narrowly wide.

They finally managed to break the deadlock on 25 minutes when a quick break when Seager fired in off the underside of the crossbar at the second attempt following good work from strike partner Corrig McGonigle.

After the break saw the Silkmen completely turn around their fortunes after some stern words from manager Niall McGuinness, with the introduction of Jake Hampson providing an injection of pace that was sorely lacking in the first period.

Hampson wasted a golden chance to level on 48 minutes when he failed to find a way past Keighan Jones after being put through on goal, and he was teed up again by league top scorer Mark Cadwallader soon after, but his strike was once again diverted by the Boro’ stopper.

United’s perseverance paid off on 69 minutes when Richie Foulkes produced a scintillating effort past Jones after fine approach play down the right-hand side from full-back Tom Kemp.

Cadwallader thought he had given the hosts the lead after 77 minutes but saw his header come back off the upright, and Jones once again thwarted Hampson with a fine stop in the closing stages to ensure Thomas’ side had something to show for their efforts after another fine display against high-quality opposition.
